  • Suggestion for Nailer

    Hi,

    My first post here. I've got a Red Dot compressor as a present from my wife, and I am on the market for a nailer. Nailer will be used for a home projects. I was thinking of some of gauge 16 but if there is a framing in a package I wouldn't mind get it. . Any suggestions of brand, model?

      Like J.P. noted there is another recent thread that is dealing with what you are asking about it seems.

      Try a search as well.

      I have a couple of early acquisitions myself with nailers that were cheapo knock offs, but quickly gravitated to Bostich and Paslode nailers.

      Nailers seem to be designed better by them and have useful features as well are readily repairable.

      I have come to appreciate that nailers are like guns, and a cheap gun will fail whereas a good gun can fail, rarely does, and if it does is usually worth repairing.

        Digger,

        I've just ordered a Bostich framing nailer in the States. If you know someone in the states who could order it for you you'll find that Bostich, Hitachi, Makita etc... all of a sudden are in the price range of the elcheapo models here. It's crazy, but if you search for a while you can find stuff for half of what it costs here. My nailer for example was $167 with free shipping on special in the states and is over $400 here. Duty is only about 6% and I'll pay taxes on $160 or so rather than $400. Of course you need to get them to send it to you.

        Just another option if it is handy for you.

          Guys,

          Thanks for replies. I have to do a search for sources here (CT, PA, HD...) and South of 48th and check what are their offers. My conclusion is also that some stuff is cheaper South than here including all duties. I always struggle between low price no name and high price brand name. Endless story...
