The Grex GC1850 is the only cordless finish nailer that is as small as a traditional air operated finish nailer, while also offering a light-weight metal body, the power to sink 2” brad nails into 2” thick red oak, and a low cost of ownership. Powered by 2 AAA alkaline batteries - capable of lasting at least 50,000 shots - and a fuel cell that lasts approximately 1,300 shots per cartridge, this cordless brad nailer eliminates the downtime that comes with charging a battery - without sacrificing power. Easy to maintain, the GC1850 features a self-lubricating piston ring and cylinder, as well as easy driver replacement. An all-metal body proves best for improved durability, reliability and heat dissipation.

  • A New Way To Do Decking - Senco's Deck Clip System

    It's finally time to shed the winter layers and get back outside. For many, the start of May means the start to decking season - and depending on Winter's wear and tear, that might also mean it's time to give your deck some much needed TLC. If you're considering upgrading your deck, there's a new product on the market you don't want to miss - Senco's Mantis hidden deck clip system.

    Senco Mantis SHD150XP

    A relatively new concept to the deck building industry, hidden fastening systems are leading an increasingly popular trend in decking. The new Senco-Mantis system is no exception.

    Senco Mantis Deck Clips

    Senco's system can be utilized in two ways, either by driving individual screws into their respective Mantis deck clip (with use of screwdriver motor), or by using the all-new SHD150XP (9D0001N) collated nailer, which drives 1-1/2" collated reversible fasteners into the Mantis hidden deck clip.

    Senco Hidden Deck System

    Designed for use with composite, PVC and other grooved deck boards, Senco's hidden deck fasteners employ a three-clip system. A starter clip is used to get the first board locked into place, which then allows the Mantis clip to secure all remaining boards into position. When reaching the final board, finishing clips complete the installation.

    Senco Deckclip Installation

    For those that opt to use the collated fasteners, the Senco SHD150XP looks like most other paper tape nailers, but is designed specifically for use with this Senco deck clip system. A patented EZ slide attachment will guide and align the Mantis deck clips into their proper place. When compared to conventional installation equipment, the SHD150XP is easier to handle - and improves productivity up to 80 percent. This pneumatic decking gun also features an industrial strength magnet to keep the deck clip in place, dry-fire lockout, sequential actuation, tool-free adjustable exhaust reflector and adjustable rafter hook. Bundle that with a five-year limited warranty to keep your tool on the job.

  • The Nail Gun Network's Most Memorable Posts - 2015

    At last - the end of 2015. What better way to capture the essence of 2015 at Nail Gun Depot, than to take a look at some of the Nail Gun Network's most influential blog posts of the year. Check out some of our most popular posts from 2015!
    Best of Nail Gun Network 2015
    NGD's Top Picks: Hall of "Frame"
    1. Nail Gun Depot Is Celebrating Its 15th Anniversary: It's hard to believe Nail Gun Depot has been around for 15 years. Launched in 2000, the site has played its part in the explosion of Internet and e-commerce. From nailers to staplers, screw guns and fasteners, we've got something for everyone.
    2. The Nail Gun Network Media Guide - We're Expanding To Video: The majority of our Nail Gun Network subscribers have come to expect weekly - and the occasional bi-weekly - blog updates announcing tool news, product demonstrations, tutorials and project tips. Now, they can expect even more, as we are pleased to announce the launch of our NGN video blog.
    3. Maintaining Pneumatic Tools & Compressors For Cold Weather: If you live in a region susceptible to winter weather, as most North Americans do, it's crucial that your pneumatic tools and air compressors are properly maintained for the cold. Protect the integrity and performance of your tools or compressor from the freezing cold.
    4. Why Every Contractor Needs A Laser Level: The principles of measurement in the construction industry have remained unchanged for hundreds - if not thousands - of years; but materials, assembly procedures, the interaction between various trades - not to mention time and cost pressures, have changed. The precise reason why every contractor should be using laser measuring instruments now, more than ever.
    5. Choosing A Staple Gun For Your Project: Learn the difference between gauge and crown, what makes one type stapler different from another, and most importantly, which stapler is the best one for you. We'll explore applications, tools, fasteners and more.

  • What Does A Nail Gun Warranty Cover?

    Picture this, the nailer you bought six months ago suddenly stops running. The power supply is fine, but the tool's dead. Time to visit an authorized repair center - but who's on the hook for the repair bill? You might be surprised at the answer. Learn more about your nailer's warranty, what constitutes a wearable part, and everything else you need to know before picking up the tab for your tool's repair bill - here on the Nail Gun Network.
    The best advice we can give you regarding warranty coverage for your tool - or any item for that matter - read the fine print carefully. Every manufacturer has their own legal staff that writes and reviews what is covered in a product warranty, down to the smallest screw. With that said, use the following as a general overview of what would typically be included within the warranty coverage for a brand-new nail gun. Always consult the manufacturer's warranty policy before filing your claim.
    Freeman Tools Warranty
    Believe it or not, the clause that trips up our customers most frequently - when they find out their warranty does not include wearable parts. This leads to the next question, what's considered a wearable part? There's a general consensus among manufacturers that wearable parts include the following components: o-rings, bumpers and driver blades. Some manufacturers might categorize additional components as wearable, but you can almost always guarantee the three parts above WILL NOT be included in your warranty coverage.
    NOTE: Some warranties only cover parts, excluding labor expense. This is particularly true in warranties that extend beyond the standard one-year guarantee. Generally, each manufacturer will specify if this is the case.
    Bostitch Warranty
    Don't kick the dirt just yet! All three of the components mentioned earlier are relatively inexpensive to repair, and are considered regular maintenance items on your nailer. Just like you would change the oil filter in your car or replace the brakes, these items require periodic attention to keep your nail gun performing at its best.
    Furthermore, what about the components that ARE covered by the warranty? Most brands of nail gun, staple gun or screw gun offer a standard one-year manufacturer's warranty. Some brands go above and beyond, offering additional protection for their product owners. If you are looking for a lifetime guarantee, Quik Drive stands behind their screw gun attachments with their limited-lifetime warranty. While it only covers the attachment (motors generally come with one year of coverage), it demonstrates the quality and durability representative of these products. Bostitch and Freeman Tools offer seven-year warranties on many of their nailers and staplers, and Senco offers a five-year warranty on its XP line of pneumatic tools.
    Senco Tools
    One final point to remember, a warranty's coverage only protects against normal use. It's ultimately up to the manufacturer to determine whether or not the owner has taken the necessary measures to ensure their tool was properly cared for prior to failure. In almost all instances, this rules out accidental damage or undue abuse. For example, if the nailer was left outside permanently and exposed to harsh conditions as a result, it could void your warranty coverage. Likewise, if a roofing nailer is dropped from a two-story roof, coverage would most likely be voided as well. Making alterations to a tool is another way to void its warranty.
    Here's our best advice. Maintain your tools per the manufacturer's specifications, see that they are not misused or abused, and have them serviced at the first sign of trouble. Some manufacturers offer the ability to register your tool online, which helps to confirm the range of time your warranty is valid. Save your sales receipts and keep your tool's service records on-hand if applicable. If you stick to these rules, your nailer, stapler or screw gun should provide many years of reliable service.

  • How To Choose The Correct Screw For Your Project

    Collated screws from Senco, Quik Drive and other manufacturers come in several shapes and sizes - each intended for a specific use. Every collated screw is designed to fulfill its own niche application. Find out which screw is right for you when you enter the Nail Gun Network.
    How To Choose A Screw
    Just like you would classify a nail, a screw can be broken down by its head, thread and tip. Screws can be divided down further by coating, material and color. Considering this, here's a break down of typical screw features based on the application of its intended use.

    Drywall

    Drywall screws need to provide enough holding power to keep drywall board firmly in its place, but don't necessarily need the same rigidity and coating as a screw that would be used for an exterior application. Most drywall screws will have a bugle head with a Phillips drive. The bugle head allows the screw to sink flesh with the drywall board surface. The thread and tip will determine the type of material the drywall board is being fastened to. For drywall to wood screws, a sharp point tip paired with coarse threads is relatively common. For drywall to steel, a drill point tip is more common.
    Senco Drywall Screw Diagram

    Decking

    For an exterior application, such as decking, screws need to not only provide the appropriate holding power - they also need to be durable enough to stand up to the outside elements indefinitely. Collated deck screws from Senco or Quik Drive generally feature a square drive, with either flat or capped heads. A sharp point tip and thicker threads will increase holding power and ease of drive. Because these screws will be exposed to moisture and other outside particles, most deck screws come with a manufacturer specific coating to help delay the weathering process. In coastal regions, many builders are required to use stainless steel screws for exterior applications to further prevent deterioration of the fastener.
    Senco Deck Screw Diagram

    SubFloor & Underlayment

    With wood to wood applications, you will typically find that most available screws will have a sharp tip with a flat head and twin threads for additional holding strength. Either zinc, phosphate, galvanization or some form of coating will most likely also be present. The coating will help to improve the overall durability of the screw if it becomes exposed to moisture.
    Quik Drive SubFloor Screw

    Metal Roofing

    Metal roofing screws are a little bit different than those used for wood applications. Metal to metal screws, particularly those used for metal roofing, will have a raised head with threads that run from head to tip. For extra heavy-duty metal roofing applications, you might even find the screw has a washer at the base of its head to help provide even greater holding strength.
    Quik Drive Metal Roofing Screw
    For the average homeowner, you typically won't use anything beyond basic drywall, decking or wood screws. For contractors, depending on the applications you work with, the possibilities are endless.

  • Everything You Need To Know About Cordless Nailers

    Are you looking for a cordless nailer, stapler or screw gun? Maybe you don't like the noise or cord restrictions that come with an air compressor? While pneumatic tools will always have a place in the construction industry, several contractors and DIYers have come to adopt cordless fastening tools over their air-powered counterpart. The biggest benefit to cordless, it goes anywhere you need it to. No hoses, no compressor, no hassle - as long as you have the tool charged that is. Find out what types of cordless nail guns, staple guns, and screw fastening systems are available, when you visit the Nail Gun Network.
    Cordless Nail Guns
    Cordless technology in the fastening industry is improving daily. As battery technology and tool engineering continues to enhance itself, nailers are becoming more powerful, holding a longer charge, yet building the same reputation for durability and ruggedness that pneumatic tools have earned. With cordless framing nail guns, finish nailers, carton closing staplers, and screw guns available - there are several cordless options to choose from.

    Nail Guns

    Cordless nailers come in a variety of shapes and sizes. From framing nailers such as the Paslode CF325Li (replaced by Paslode CF325XP), to finish and trim nailers such as the Senco Fusion, contractors and DIYer's have come to love these tools for their increased versatility and quiet operation. One big thing to remember if you are considering a cordless nailer - several models require the use of a fuel cell in addition to a battery pack. A fuel cell is a small canister of compressed gas that releases energy in conjunction with the tool's trigger being fired. This is especially necessary in larger nailers that require more energy to fire. Taking it one step further, keep in mind that one size doesn't fit all when talking about fuel cells. Each manufacturer will specify the correct fuel cell for their tool. Smaller finish and trim nailers, such as the Senco Fusion line, do not require fuel cells since they do not require as much energy to sink a nail to its proper depth.
    Cordless Brad Nailers
    Spoiler Alert: Grex has announced the launch of an all-new 18 gauge cordless brad nailer, powered by battery and long-life fuel cell. This tool is lightweight and nimble - we anticipate it to be extremely competitive with other similar models currently on the market. Expect an official release sometime in 2015.

    Staple Guns

    Cordless staple guns are growing in popularity, but are not as common as their not-so-distant relative, the nail gun. Bostitch recently released three new cordless carton closing staplers, the DSW-3522, the DSW-3519 and the DSC-3219. These cordless staplers run on a 12 volt lithium-ion battery, capable of securing 800 staples per 45 minute charge. In general, these Bostitch tools are particularly useful in high-production packing and shipping facilities. For those looking to avoid a power supply completely, there are also several manually operated models.

    Screw Guns

    Quite possibly the most popular cordless option of the three types of fastening tools we've covered, cordless screw gun sales are growing at a rapid pace. In particular, Senco's DuraSpin cordless screw system(s) are among the most recognized collated screw guns in the industry. Senco DuraSpin cordless models are powered by the same 18 volt battery pack that can be found on the Senco Fusion, designed to drive between 500 and 700 collated DuraSpin screws per charge. Simpson Strong-Tie also recently partnered with Fein, to release the first cordless screw gun motor for their Quik Drive auto-feed screw system. The Fein motor is compatible with all Quik Drive auto-feed attachments.
    Senco DuraSpin Cordless
    In wrapping things up, it's only fair to cover the counterpoints in going cordless too. The biggest downside to cordless - the cost. Plan to spend anywhere from $100 to $300 more for a cordless nailer, stapler or screw gun, over the cost of its pneumatic or electric counterpart. If you are only using cordless tools, part of this cost can be offset by eliminating the need for an air compressor. The other point to consider before switching to cordless, be sure to plan for enough battery charge to keep your tool running throughout the duration of your project. Keep a car charger or spare battery on hand for larger projects, especially if you are planning to use the cordless tool for extended periods of time. If required, keep an extra fuel cell handy too.
    All that's left to decide, are you ready to cut the cord?

  • DIY Tips: How To Install Flawless Drywall

    In honor of Nail Gun Depot's Screw Gun Showdown, let's take a look at one of the top uses for a screw fastening system, installing drywall. An important step in any major home renovation or remodeling project, knowing how to install drywall can save time and money. Learn how to install drywall, the best tools for the job, and other useful DIY tips - here on the Nail Gun Network.
    Quik Drive Drywall Attachment
    Most new construction projects mandate the use of drywall screws when installing drywall. Screws are certainly ideal, as their thread provides better holding power - especially in climates where wood is prone to expand and contract regularly. In some circumstances, drywall nails can be used to hang wallboard, but beware, over time nail popping and other imperfections to the wall might occur as the wood frame expands and contracts. For long-term quality, we recommend using collated drywall screws and a screw gun - for fast, easy, cost-effective drywall installation. Senco DuraSpin and Simpson Quik Drive are two competitive screw fastening systems that continue to offer best-in-class performance.
    Project Note: Most Drywall Screws Require A Phillips Drive.
    Another benefit to using screws over nails for drywall installation, it generally takes less screws to complete the project. Be certain to consult your local building code before beginning installation of drywall, as different regions have different requirements. Beyond building code, don't fall victim to silly, yet expensive errors.
    Senco DuraSpin Drywall Installation
    Even for beginners, drywall installation is relatively easy to pick up. Just pay careful attention to the following:
    • Prior to installation, make sure the lumber you are fastening drywall board to is within an acceptable range of moisture content, less than 19 percent by most standards. As damp wood dries out, it can lead to popping of fasteners - and splitting at seams.
    • Don't overlook sagging panels - particularly when installing a ceiling. Make sure to drive extra screws into place while pressing firmly on the loose board. In some extreme cases, an additional brace or bracket may be required to guarantee a firm fit. Likewise, watch for bulging at your vertical seams. If the drywall board swells at the seam - once it has been taped and sealed - it may require sanding. You can prevent this issue by ensuring there is no gap between drywall boards during installation.
    • Don't take the easy route when it comes to corners. Use a corner guard versus drywall tape and spackle. A corner guard will hold up better in the long run and is typically easier to work with than tape. You should also mark your studs and joists prior to installation of a drywall board. This will help improve the accuracy of your drive and will prevent additional repair work in problem areas.
    • Watch for imperfections in drywall tape. Don't ignore bubbles, streaks, splits or other noticeable imperfections in drywall tape as it is laid. If air is allowed between the tape and base, it will lead to separation later on. Tape that is not secured properly can eventually peel and will require repair and repainting. In areas where warm and cold air are allowed to converge regularly, eventual loosening and separation of tape from the drywall base is almost inevitable.
    • Make sure your screw gun is set to the proper depth. Depending on the thickness of the board, determine the appropriate screw length and depth adjustment for your tool. Driving too deep can cause noticeable divets in the drywall. Driving too short leaves the screw's head protruding. If installed properly, the screw's head should sit slightly below the drywall surface - leaving just enough room for compound to smooth the surface.
    Drywall Board
    To recap, make sure your framing is dry, mark your studs and joists for accurate drive locations, hold the drywall board firmly against the wood frame while fastening in place, line up boards for accuracy, scan and repair imperfections, and enjoy.

  • Screw Gun Showdown - Senco's DuraSpin Screw System

    Welcome to part-two in our Screw Gun Showdown series, where we take an in-depth look at Senco's DuraSpin screw fastening system. Designed for applications that include drywall, subflooring/sheathing, decking, cement board, underlayment, sheathing to steel, metal framing, steel decking and rigid foam insulation - among other uses - Senco DuraSpin is built to handle the most rigorous of screw fastening applications. Different in design from Quik Drive, Senco DuraSpin models come in two different styles - one with a traditional screw gun motor and attachment; the other with its entire screw system built into one handheld unit. The simplicity and versatility of a one-piece, handheld unit makes this Senco DuraSpin a top-pick for DIY applications and contractor-grade uses alike.
    Screw Gun Showdown
    Available in both electric (corded) and battery (cordless) variations, Senco DuraSpin screw systems are adaptable, based on the needs of their user. While an electric model, such as the DS332-AC, will guarantee use wherever an outlet is available, cordless DuraSpin models, such as the DS312-18V, let a user go beyond the length of a cord - we just recommend keeping a spare battery on hand for large-scale projects.
    Maybe you would rather have an attachment that can be used with a power screw driver motor? Senco's DuraSpin has a solution for that too, with one of their auto-feed attachments. Available as an attachment, such as the DS320, or as a full kit with screw gun motor included, such as the DS440-AC, there are a variety of options to suit different degrees of demand.
    When we start talking about features, DuraSpin doesn't fall short. Look for Senco's patented corner-fit feed system - which allows you to maneuver the screw gun in hard to reach corners and narrow spaces that a typical screw system would not be able to fit. If you choose to get the DS425-AC, or an auto-feed attachment offered by Senco, look for an adjustable arm that permits a user to stand during labor intensive projects, which would otherwise require them to bend over or kneel.
    The Screw Gun Showdown features the following DuraSpin screw systems:
