  • Introducing The Paslode F-350P PowerMaster Pro

    It's not every day we get excited about a new tool coming to market, but when Paslode announced the F-350P PowerMaster Pro framing nailer was on its way, we already had our RounDrive framing nails in hand and ready to load. Get the first glimpse of this all-new paper strip framing nailer from Paslode, right here on the Nail Gun Network.

    As we've come to expect from Paslode, the F-350P PowerMaster Pro framing nailer (515000) is designed to drive nails consistently, minimizing downtime and maximizing productivity and efficiency. Designed to drive a complete range of 2" to 3-1/4" 30 degree RounDrive framing nails, the PowerMaster Pro features a lightweight and well-balanced design for improved usability and handling compared to previous models.

    Contractor-grade durability is a given for this 30 degree stick nailer. Not only designed to withstand the rigors of regular use, the Paslode F-350P PowerMaster Pro is built to handle what you throw at it. Additional features to help get the job done right include a dual finger trigger (choose between bump and sequential fire), rear loading magazine to reduce downtime, thumbwheel depth of drive, and work contact element with aggressive teeth to improve accuracy and installation time.

    The Paslode 515000 has a simple design with fewer moving components to ensure reliability and serviceability. To ensure downtime won't be an issue, the Paslode PowerMaster Pro comes with a manufacturer's one-year full warranty, which applies to all parts except those covered by its five-year extended limited warranty - which covers all housing and cap assembly castings.

    Paslode Tools

    According to Paslode, the all-new F-350P has been named the designated replacement tool for Paslode's 50th Anniversary F-350S (511990) framing nailer, which will be phased out in the coming months.

    Would you give this new Paslode a shot?

  • How To Maximize Air Compressor Efficiency

    The Nail Gun Network proudly presents the following guest post, originally published on "Zero Sick Days" by RolAir:

    "The key to optimal air compressor efficiency is to maintain the integrity of your entire pneumatic system. This includes the air compressor, fittings, air hose, and tools. An efficient pneumatic system will ensure that you’re getting the air you need, when you need it. An inefficient one will cost you time and money. Follow the steps below to make sure your pneumatic system keeps operating the way it was intended to.

    RolAir Compressors Banner

    1. Use 3/8″ air hose whenever possible. All hoses cause some degree of frictional loss. While 1/4″ air hose is lighter and generally easier to work with, the smaller diameter restricts air flow more than a 3/8″ diameter hose would. If the CFM requirements of the tool(s) being operated is close to the air compressor’s limits, every bit of pressure counts. To ensure you’re getting the maximum amount of pressure to the tool, opt for a larger diameter hose. To get an idea of how air hose diameter affects working pressure, check out this handy Air Flow Calculator.
    2. Use shorter lengths of air hose. The idea here is similar to #1. The farther the air has to travel, the more pressure you lose. We completely understand that situations will arise when you are forced to use long runs of small diameter hose. When that happens, refer to the next step.
    3. Use an auxiliary tank. Adding an auxiliary tank in between two lengths of hose allows the user(s) to maximize distance from the compressor while minimizing frictional loss. For example, if you were to use two 3/8″ x 100′ air hoses, you’d be able to work 200′ from the compressor, but only lose pressure over the length of one 100′ section. The icing on the cake is the fact that the Air Keg can go where the compressor can’t, like on a pitched roof.
    4. Lubricate your pneumatic tools regularly. Just be careful what you put in them. The wrong type of lubricant can cause more harm than good by damaging o-rings and other internal components. The correct type of oil will be labeled as a tool lubricant and will contain special additives to promote long life for pneumatic tools. Of course, the obvious question is “How often?” That depends on the type of tool and how hard it’s being used, but for tools that get used daily, applying 4-5 drops at the start of each shift is a good rule of thumb.
    5. Check the system for leaks. This includes the entire air compressor, all fittings, air hoses and tools. Simply allow the compressor to build to top pressure with the air hose and all other tools and components hooked up. Once the compressor has stopped pumping, watch the tank pressure gauge and listen closely. If the needle stays put, you’ve got a leak-free system. If the needle starts to drop continuously (a slight drop is normal as the air cools) or you hear a hiss of air, you’ve got a leak. Excessive leaks in the system can cause your compressor to run more often than necessary, which leads to premature wear. If you have a difficult time locating the leak, we recommend spraying a soap and water solution on the hose and all fittings. A leak will cause the solution to bubble.

    Like anything else in the trades, a little bit of planning and preparation up front will pay dividends in the end. If you plan out your pneumatic system prior to each job and add steps 4 and 5 to your preventative maintenance plan, you’ll avoid a few headaches and maximize the lifespan of your equipment. If you feel like your pneumatic system is not performing like it should, give us a call and one of our service reps will help you troubleshoot the issue."

  • Nail Gun Depot Offers Discount Factory-Reconditioned Tools

    Nail Gun Depot is proud to announce its expansion into Factory-Reconditioned Tools. The launch of this pre-owned program – featuring a regular rotation of lightly-used, factory-reconditioned nailers, staplers and screw guns - is rolling out the "red" carpet with several Senco tools in its inaugural run. The perk to this program; customers can now own a like-new tool at a fraction of the cost.

    But, what about quality?

    The tools that come in as factory-reconditioned have only seen light use, often only used by a Weekend Warrior for a project or two, then returned. Prior to sale, each of our refurbished tools are inspected and serviced by trained technicians at the manufacturer. If required, repairs are made and factory-replacement parts are installed. These factory-reconditioned tools may show slight signs of use, but are sold in like-new working condition.

    Take a look at Nail Gun Depot's first batch of reconditioned tools:

    For heavy-duty construction, the Senco WC200XP (4Y0001R) factory-reconditioned wide crown stapler has a lightweight, well-balanced, and extremely durable design – making it a true workhorse. The WC200XP includes a new firing valve design for fast and powerful operation, EZ clear latch for fast jam removal, tool-free adjustable depth of drive, high-strength composite magazine, and durable exhaust cap for superior damage resistance. This heavy-duty stapler is excellent for lathing, attaching corrugated to skids, butt joints, furniture and cabinet frames.

    Senco 4Y0001R

    If you're looking for something a bit smaller, but still packing a punch, we have the Senco Fusion F-16S (6U0001R) factory-reconditioned cordless li-ion finish nailer. The 6U0001R features Senco’s innovative "Fusion" technology, eliminating the need for expensive fuel cells without compromising performance. Additional features include optional sequential or bump-fire operation, nose mounted LED light, adjustable and reversible belt hook, depth of drive, rugged aluminum magazine, and patented reflex shot design for instant firing. This Senco cordless finish nailer is excellent for molding, furniture, cabinet frames and more.

    Senco 6U0001R

    If you prefer the feel (and price) of a pneumatic finish nailer, consider the Senco FinishPro 18BMg (9B0001R) factory-reconditioned brad nailer. The Senco 9B0001R is designed with a lightweight magnesium body that improves user comfort and enhances durability. This brad nailer requires minimal maintenance thanks to its oil-free operation. Additional features include a nose-mounted LED light, narrow nose for tight spaces, metal cylinder for increased durability, and an EZ Clear latch that protects against fastener jams. The 9B0001R is great for cabinets, casing, paneling, woodworking and more.

    Senco 9B0001R

    For the roofer, we have the Senco RoofPro 455XP (3D0101R) factory-reconditioned coil roofing nailer. The Senco 3D0101R features a tool-free adjustable depth of drive, adjustable shingle guide, aluminum body for longer life, and steel wear plates to reduce shingle wear on the tool. This RoofPro nailer is designed for installing asphalt and fiberglass shingles, waterproof tar paper, insulation board, re-roofing and new roofs.

    Senco 3D0101R

    Installing drywall on a budget? No problem with the Senco DuraSpin DS235-AC (7T0001R) auto-feed screw system. The Senco DS235-AC features a fast 5,000 RPM motor – designed for contractor grade drywall installation. This corded (electric) screw gun is designed with a tool-free adjustable nose piece for different length screws, patented corner fit feed system for easy wall and corner access, adjustable depth of drive with depth lock, variable speed trigger with lock and reverse, rubber comfort grip, quick bit release, and 10 foot rubber cord. The 7T0001R is ideal for applications in drywall, subfloor, underlayment, cement board, sheathing to steel, metal framing and more.

    Senco 7T0001R

    Again, please remember that Nail Gun Depot's inventory of reconditioned tools will be constantly changing, as new factory-reconditioned items become available, and existing items are depleted. Be sure to order early to ensure availability - and check back often to see new items added.

    Are you ready to try recon?
