  • First Look: Fasco Introduces A Cordless Fence Stapler

    Big news coming from Alabama, as Fasco has finally announced a cordless fencing stapler is on its way. Nail Gun Depot has the scoop before anyone else. Keep reading on the Nail Gun Network to learn more.

    If you're a fence builder, you've probably heard of Fasco's F46 40-315 pneumatic fence stapler, as it currently dominates the U.S. wire fencing industry. Up until now though, U.S. wire fence installers have been fairly limited in the fastening tools available to them - particularly when talking about cordless staplers. Fasco promises to change that.

    Fasco Cordless Fence Stapler

    The first of its kind from Fasco, the 11616F cordless fence stapler brings cordless technology to the U.S. fence building industry. Designed to drive the same 10.5 gauge fencing staples as its air-powered sibling, the Fasco 11616F cordless stapler operates via combined use of battery-power and fuel cell. Capable of firing 5,200 shots per battery charge, and 1,200 shots per fuel cartridge, Fasco's cordless fence staple gun offers the best in utility, reliability and performance.

    Fasco Fence Staples

    Most features from the Fasco F46 40-315 air-powered fencing stapler will carry over into the cordless model. In essence, it appears you'll get the same tool, but without the limitations of an air compressor and hose.

    Users will enjoy a laundry list of features on the Fasco 11616F cordless fencing stapler, some of which include a top load magazine, single-shot actuation, adjustable depth of drive, and comfort grip. Ideal for all types of wire fencing attached to wood, including chain link fences, barbed wire, hi tensile wire, animal cages, live stock panel closures and much more, this is the cordless fencing stapler we've been waiting for. And, you get a carrying case, spare battery, battery charger and two fuel cells included with the tool, compliments of Fasco.

    Fasco Cordless Fence Stapler Specs

    Don't forget. The Fasco 11616F does require both fuel cell and battery to operate. However, Fasco fuel cartridges can be interchanged with the Paslode 816000 IMCT red framer fuel cells.

    Fasco 11616F

    More to come, once we've put this tool through its paces in the field. Look for the Fasco 11616F to officially hit the market sometime in late Fall 2016. In the meantime, would you trade your air hose and go cordless with this new Fasco fencing stapler?

  • Name-Brand Quality On Budget - Everwin & SureFit Make A...

    There's a lot of "generic" competition when it comes to hardware and power tools. For the most part, these brands quickly earn a reputation for cheap, disposable products. But, every now and again, you find someone that gets it right. Those few select companies that can engineer a tool or fastener to name-brand specification, but still maintain bargain-brand pricing. Over the years, we've seen our share of winners - and losers - but two of our best finds yet are just now gaining the notoriety they deserve, especially when used together. That's right, we're talking about Everwin Pneumatic tools - paired with our top-quality lineup of SureFit fasteners.

    Everwin Tri-App

    Here's why these two should be on YOUR radar.

    Everwin Pneumatic may be relatively new to market, but they are far from inexperienced. In fact, the concept for Everwin was born in 2012, when several veteran tool engineers realized they could manufacture a pneumatic nailer, comparable in quality to products from Bostitch, Hitachi, MAX and others of the like, but without the vast overhead their competitors embrace.

    Everwin Tools

    The outcome? A rapidly growing selection of pneumatic nailers and staplers, built to match the name-brand build quality a contractor or assembler requires, but offered at a fraction of the cost.

    Everwin Pneumatic

    To date, Everwin has branched into several new categories of collated fastening tools, including wide and medium crown construction staplers, siding nailers, and carton closing staplers. Despite growth, Everwin's core product line, industrial coil nailers, remains the backbone of their business. Launching with the PN57 and PN70 model pallet nail guns, Everwin now offers more than ten industrial coil nailers, mostly pallet coil nailers for both handheld and automated use. To see Everwin's full selection of tools, click here.

    Everwin Construction Stapler

    Take the plunge, we promise you'll love your Everwin just as much as its brand-name counterpart. With money to spare. But wait, there's more...

    Everwin Pallet Nailer

    You'll need a quality fastener to go with your quality tool. We recommend SureFit fasteners, designed and built to brand-name specification - but available at a fraction of the cost. With a selection of collated framing nails, coil nails, roofing nails, hanger nails, finish nails, brads, carton staples, stick staples and several other series' to choose from, we suggest SureFit for any compatible nailer or stapler. Don't forget to add a box of SureFit nails or staples to your order!

    SureFit Nails

    Still need an extra push? How about discount freight shipping, delivered to your door. Your volume fastener order may qualify for special freight shipping rates on Nail Gun Depot. Check best available rates to your area during checkout.

  • What Size Air Compressor Do I Need For My Tool?

    If you're using pneumatic tools, there's no avoiding the need for an air compressor. But when it comes to compressors, you'll find they come in a variety of shapes and sizes - so how much compressor do you really need? Use these simple guidelines to determine which air compressor suits your needs best.

    In most scenarios, a portable hand-carry air compressor will provide more than enough power to keep your pneumatic fastening tool up and running. Take this for instance - a small 1HP portable unit (delivering 2.0 CFM – cubic feet of air per minute) allows a large nail gun to operate at about 15 nail drives per minute. That same compressor will run a medium-size finishing nailer at about 30 nail drives per minute, and will run a small brad nailer at over 70 drives per minute. So as you can see, the specs of the tool will ultimately dictate the air compressor's performance.

    Senco PC1131 Workshop

    Each tool takes a “breath” of compressed air, which then provides the driving force necessary to sink each fastener. The larger the pneumatic tool, the more air it requires to operate, which is also known as “air consumption per cycle”.

    PRO TIP: If you divide the air consumption per cycle into the CFM of any given air compressor, you will determine the possible drives per minute. This simple calculation should tell you if the compressor is able to properly power the tool you are intending to use.

    Senco Compressors

    All that's left to do is determine how quickly you're planning to run the tool. A professional construction contractor may need the extra juice to operate one - or more - large tools at a high rate of speed. In this instance, a wheelbarrow compressor (either gasoline or electric depending on preferred power source) will provide the necessary power required. If similar output is required, but the application is in a fixed location (think assembly line), a large stationary compressor may also work.

    For those running one or two smaller air tools, a portable electric compressor should provide more than enough energy - especially if used with an additional expansion (holding) tank of air. If you are running several small to medium-size air tools, you'll want a compressor rated for 4.0+ CFM. If you're looking to run a finish and trim tool (or similar) individually, a 2.0+ CFM compressor should provide ample power.

    For easy reference, we've included this handy chart below, provided by Senco.

  • 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."

  • Corded Power – Cordless Freedom – Dewalt FLEXVOLT

    The folks at Dewalt have outdone themselves again, introducing an entirely new line of cordless batteries – coined the FLEXVOLT System. The first of their kind, these Dewalt batteries feature an intelligent design, capable of changing voltage when you change tools. The FLEXVOLT system is compatible with 20V MAX, 60V MAX and 120V MAX tools.

    FlexVolt Lightning

    The Dewalt DCB606 20V/60V MAX FLEXVOLT 6.0 Ah battery pack is designed with fifteen 4V MAX cells. Designed to run in either parallel or series mode, this battery is currently the most versatile in its class. In parallel mode, three sets of five cells connect in a parallel circuit. Each set provides 2 Ah (Amp Hour). Keep in mind, Ah is the amount of energy charge in a battery. This mode gives you a total of 20V MAX and 6 Ah for an increased run time.

  • Paslode Transitions To Lithium-Ion Cordless Power

    Remember when Paslode first released its industry-changing cordless Impulse nailers? Nailing was never the same.

    Yet again, Paslode is raising the stakes, taking their cordless nailers into the 21st Century with lithium-ion power. Just like before, each Paslode cordless tool still requires a fuel cell to operate; but now offers better range and improved ergonomics. The transition was recently completed, when Paslode released their IM200-Li cordless brad nailer.

    Paslode IM200-Li

    "Why Choose Paslode Cordless? Paslode Cordless offers durable and lightweight solutions to your everyday work. Not only does Paslode Cordless offer more balance and control, but it was made to withstand the tough jobsite conditions. Paslode Cordless Systems were built to keep up with you." ~ Paslode.com

    Paslode IM250S-Li

    Let's take a closer look at the full Paslode Li-Ion cordless lineup:

    When it comes to framing, Paslode's cordless framing nailer has enjoyed one of the longest running success stories in the business. The current generation Paslode CF325XP, which recently replaced the CF325-Li, offers the same benefits as its predecessor, but with 15% increased driving power, low temperature usability (tool works in conditions down to 14 degrees Fahrenheit - when using all-season orange fuel cell), and up to 50% longer run time per battery charge. Eligible for Paslode's 2 Year Service Promise, the CF325XP (905600) is also backed by a standard five-year warranty. This Paslode framing nailer is tried, tested - and now better than ever before.

    Paslode CF325XP

    Paslode doesn't stop with framing. Now boasting a full line of Li-Ion cordless finish and trim nailers, the Paslode brand has come full circle. Choose between a 16 gauge straight IM250S-Li (916000), 16 gauge angled IM250A-Li (902400), and the most recent addition - an 18 gauge brad nailer IM200-Li (918000). All lithium-ion - all ready to work.

    Paslode 916000

    Like the CF325XP, these Paslode Li-Ion cordless finish nailers are lighter weight (easier to carry and use), can be recharged quicker, and hold their charge for a longer range of time. Don't forget, these Paslode cordless finish nailers do still require a small yellow fuel cell to operate.

    Paslode Cordless Nail Gun Depot Promotion

    To celebrate this milestone, for a limited time get a FREE Paslode Yellow Finish Fuel (816007) or Orange Framing Fuel Cell (816008), when purchasing ANY Paslode lithium-ion framing or finish nailer on Nail Gun Depot. Deal starts Friday (7/22/16) and runs while supplies last.

  • How To Clear A Nail Jam From Your Framing Nail Gun

    If you own a nail gun (or staple gun), it's inevitable that you'll eventually have to clear a jam from your magazine. Not to worry, with a few simple steps you can have your tool up and running again - without the down time and expense of taking it in for service.

    Nail Gun Nose

    Here's what you have to do:

    1. Depending on the framing nailer you have, you may need to access the tool's magazine. To do this, you will need to consult your manufacturer's owner manual for guidance, as this step may vary based on the model of tool you have. For example, some Senco FramePro stick nailers feature rear magazine mounting screws, which might need removal to allow proper access.
    2. To get to the jam, you'll need to first pull the magazine track away from the framing nailer's nose.
    3. Then, using a screw driver or hammer (we've also found success using a nail punch), gently strike the driver past the jammed nail. You should now be able to remove the jammed nail(s).
    4. Now, reassemble your magazine, and reinstall any mounting screws or other components altered during Step One.

    Unfortunately, there's a good chance you'll experience a jam or two - even with a top-tier nailer or stapler. To help prevent the issue, only use fasteners that meet the specification of your tool. You should also verify the tool is loaded properly, and always use the manufacturer's recommended air pressure for pneumatic models.

    Still in a jam? Contact Nail Gun Depot's service experts for further advise.
