Best nail gun ever.

Recommended Posts

I have paslode guns before of all styles and various manufactures and would all ways recommend a good air setup the gun has very few moving parts along as you give it a drop of oil time to time will last many years, Any form of impulse gun ie paslode is quite a complicated piece of kit and from experience delicate.

For your needs I suggest a coil gun

Interesting. Why a coil gun?

So yesterday I bought a 50 litre compressor for cleaning tools etc.

It got me thinking about a nail gun again and as air nailers are cheaper it may make sense to get one.

 

Question is, a coil nailer like the Bostitch or one with a straight magazine? And Why?

Thanks.

I dont have a nail gun but did buy a bostitch compressor a few years ago to take on the van to blow out air filters etc. The best thing about it is they run much higher pressures than normal compressors so ideal for blowing up lorry tyres. Not sure if a normal compressor would work so well with a nail gun due to lower pressure.

Paslode Im 350, fragile, expensive to buy, expensive to run, only got half a head on the nail Stanley bostich far superior cheaper to buy nails half price or less works in the cold, mud and in the rain excellent parts back up just needs oiling unlike paslode which needs taking apart to clean each week. Air is quicker, lighter and more powerful also true 100mm nail

Stick Nailer, nails and gun lot cheaper ,less bulky and the coils tend to get damaged a lot more than the sticks

I believe its hitachi have now got a battery nail gun on the market now, better than a paslode cos you dont need the gas canisters, and its just as fast as a normal air one without the need for a compressor

It depends on your work load, I used to contract on building sites putting up hoarding then all the fencing so I had miles to do every year. A good air rig with a coil nailer and genny is what I used with max 50 m of hose set in the middle of a 100m run. Stopped the site work sold my kit and now have the hitachi nr. Four years now.... Still kicking myself but I don't do anywhere near that volume of fencing now and the hitachi does what I need. Whatever you do don't bypass the safety on the nailer toile the job quicker ;-)
