  • Announcing Nail Gun Depot's New Headquarters & Distribution...

    If you haven't heard, we've moved! As many of you already know, 2016 has been a BIG year for Nail Gun Depot. In the shadow of our 15th Anniversary celebration last year, we launched a brand-new, mobile optimized website last spring, expanded our already expansive online product lineup for the summer, and have now extended our physical footprint - by 40,000 square feet - to round out the year.

    Nail Gun Depot Headquarters

    Our new headquarters and fulfillment center, located at 1740 Carillon Blvd. in Cincinnati, is our largest location yet. Boasting an expansive 50,000 square foot structure, our new facility includes a full-service repair center, corporate offices and call center, a showroom, and a spacious distribution and fulfillment center.

    NGD Warehouse

    As always, expect the same great service as before. Our website, phone and email will all remain the same, as we transition into our new home.

    So, what does this mean for you?

    With a larger distribution center, we will now have the ability to stock more products and maintain a greater inventory. Stay tuned to NailGunDepot.com for inventory additions, and be sure to subscribe to the Nail Gun Network for the latest product news and updates!

  • 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?

  • How To Install Radiant Floor Heating

    Homeowners ask, why upgrade to radiant floor heating? Picture this, it's a chilly morning and you take that first barefoot step onto a cold tile floor. The touch sends a chill straight through your body.

    Radiant Floor Heating

    If you're fed-up with frigid floors, there's an alternative - radiant floor heating. Not only a benefit to your feet, heated flooring is a popular selling feature among prospective home buyers. And, installation is easier than you think.

    PROJECT NOTE: You will have to remove your existing outer flooring when installing above the sub-floor. If you aren't prepared to re-tile or replace existing floors, don't start without the proper budget, materials and professional guidance. When installing above sub-floor, you will also have to cover the radiant heating grid with a layer of gypsum - or concrete - once the heating unit has been properly secured to the sub-floor. Any flooring material installed above the layer of gypsum can be installed as you would install flooring over a concrete surface.

    Spotnails Radiant Floor App

    Compared to other methods, such as hot water heating or forced air, radiant floor systems disperse warmth evenly, as they are designed to cover a maximum square footage for any given space. Typically used in tile bathrooms, radiant heat can be used in other areas of the home that present the proper conditions for installation.

    PROJECT TIP: Before installation, confirm all electrical and structural specifications for the space you are working meet code. We recommend contacting a licensed electrician and general contractor to ensure your project is being completed both safely and legally. Confirm that the addition of radiant heating will not overload your existing circuits or create another hazard. Be sure to follow the installation instructions and consult professional expertise as required. Never work with live wires.

    When ready to start, installation can be done two ways, either above the sub-floor or below it. In either instance, you'll need to make sure the radiant mat is stapled into place and secured to the sub-floor before proceeding. Spotnails offers two tools designed specifically for radiant flooring installation, the X1S1640RFH and the X1S3640RFH. Both of these wide crown construction staplers are designed specifically for the installation of radiant flooring.

    Spotnails Radiant Floor Stapler

    Installing your radiant heating system above the sub-floor? Spotnails offers an attachable pogo stick (AS-99090), which eliminates the need to bend over for stapling. Simply place the tool's nose on your desired point of fastening, and pull the walking stick's trigger to activate.

    As we mentioned earlier, once the wiring has been harnessed, connected and tested per your radiant flooring mat manufacturer's instruction, you will need to protect the radiant heating system by either installing insulation (for under sub-floor radiant flooring), or by adding a layer of gypsum (over sub-floor radiant floor installation).

    Ready to heat your feet? Share your experience with radiant flooring below.

  • What's A Hog Ring Tool Used For?

    When you hear the word hog ring, a fastener might not be the first object that comes to mind. Hog ring tools are not necessarily the most common item in a DIY workshop, but hog rings play an important role in almost everyone's daily life - from the car seat you sit on to wire fencing and mesh bags.
     
    Similar to a staple gun, these tools drive "c" shaped collated fasteners (hog rings), which are used to attach wire, fabric and other materials - and lock them in place. You might hear someone refer to hog ring pliers as a bag closing stapler or hog ringer, as these tools are commonly used to close and seal a bag or sack at the opening. The most common applications that hog rings excel at include: automotive seat manufacturing, bedding and mattresses, wire cages, and plant and pot tagging.
     
    To maneuver most hog ring tools, set the width of the jaws (when closed), then open the jaws by pulling the handles on the pliers. Affix the hog ring and jaws over the area in need to fastening and squeeze the handles to activate the tool.
     
    Now that we know what a hog ring tool is and how it is used, let's look at some of the options that are available on the market. Some of the best tools you can buy, look at Bostitch's selection of hog ring tools. The SC7 Series Hog Ring Tools by Bostitch are time tested - and have a strong track record for optimal performance. The SC7 Series tools are designed for heavy-duty use in manufacturing or construction.
     
    For smaller projects that don't justify the extra expense of an industrial grade tool, Bostitch also offers a couple manual hog ring tools, the HFP9 and the P7. While these manual tools do come with some limitation to their range of application, they are generally the preferred models for the do it yourselfer that is caging a home garden or attaching signs to fencing.
     
    Do you know which hog ring tool is right for you? Contact our customer service team with your application and we'll pair you with a tool to get the job done right.

  • What Are Concrete/Steel Nailers - And When To Use Them?

    Typically, we look at the commonplace nail guns and staplers that can be found in most workshops or contractor's vans, but what about the tools that are not as common - yet equally important in function? This week, let's take a look at Concrete/Steel Nailers and their significance in the construction trade.

     

    For the average do-it-yourself homeowner, chances are you won't have a need for one of these high-powered fastening tools - unless you are working with the basement's foundation or building a structure with concrete. The place where concrete/steel nailers (also known as "t-nailers") shine is as simple as their name - applications that require a nail being driven into concrete. Where a user would ordinarily have to drill into concrete to attach wood or other materials, the concrete nail gun eliminates the need for drilling, which saves time. Depending on the intensity of your application, these tools can range in price and durability, with lower-end models, such as the Spotnails MT9764, available on Nail Gun Depot for less than $250, while higher-end models, such as the Aerosmith SurePin CT90, can cost $1,000 or more.

     

    Using a concrete nailer on a surface that is not solid enough can result in cracking or damage to the material, such as wood - or even cement - so it's important that you use the appropriate nailer for the project you are completing. See our article on Brad Nailers vs. Finish Nailers for finish and trim applications.

     

    Also, keep in mind that a concrete/steel t-nailer will require different types of collated fasteners than other nail guns. These fasteners are commonly known as Concrete Pins and/or T-Nails. They are harder than a traditional nail and feature a special, tack design, to increase grip power. Applications that allow concrete pins and t-nails to perform optimally include the installation of furring strips, plywood to concrete nailing, wire lath installation, steel banding to concrete, wood to metal, decking, fencing, subfloor to concrete slab and more.

     
    If you are interested in learning more about these tools and fasteners, please visit our Concrete/Steel T-Nailers page or call 888.720.7892.

  • Specialty Fastening Tools You Need To Know About

    We talk a lot about the mainstream fastening tools that most of our customers can relate to their job site, but what about the specialty tools that go beyond a traditional finish nailer or flooring stapler? That's right, we're talking about the big-guns. These tools are not available at your big box stores. They are custom built - designed with the capability to function above and beyond the norm. Sometimes, it takes a little bit more to get the job done right. Now is your chance to discover some of these tools that can make your job easier - tools that you can't just find anywhere.
     
    Let's start with one of our favorite specialty fabricators, Motion Devices, a company that takes Senco brand tools and gives them a unique twist in function. A new addition to the Nail Gun Depot site, the Senco MD0054 is a prime example of tool fabrication that provides added value to the user. To the ordinary eye, this tool would appear to be a Senco FP42, however, upon further examination, not only can this tool be used as a finish nailer, but can also act as a floor nailer via a removable attachment. In combining the function of multiple tools, the MD0054 will ultimately save a floor installer or general contractor on the amount of tools they need.
     
    Senco MD0054
     
    Another great example, the MD4913 utilizes the popular Senco SNS200XP, converting it into a medium crown tube closing clinch stapler. The Senco MD4913 tube closing clinch stapler is designed to secure plastic and metal end caps on mailing and shipping tubes. Likewise, the MW4941 Wide Crown Clinch Stapler is ideal for softwood and corrugated cardboard applications. Enhancements to this tool include a new remote firing valve for fast and powerful operation, a high-strength compostive magazine, and an extremely durable exhaust cap to prevent damage.
     
    Senco MW4941
     
    A powerful option in the corrugated fastening segment, the BeA W-Type Corrugated Fastener Tool (12000133) virtually eliminates the need for gluing, milling, clamping, screwing and other time-consuming operations. Designed with durability in mind, a corrugated fastener is twice as strong as a regular fastener - meaning this tool is a must have item for anyone that regularly works with corrugated products, such as cardboard. This BeA tool also features a compact design which gives it the agility to seal butt and corner joints with ease.
     
    BeA 12000133
     
    Last, but certainly not least, we couldn't leave the topic of specialty tools without mentioning carton closing staplers. An absolute must have tool for any business that deals in production and distribution, top closing staplers maximize productivity and provide a durable seal required for shipping. Looking for an outstanding example? The Josef Kihlberg A560PN heavy-duty carton stapler is designed to tackle high and low volume closing of corrugated cardboard including box folding, complete overlap and more. Check out our selection of carton closing staplers here.
     
    Josef Kihlberg A560PN
     
    Whether you prefer a fabricated fastening tool or a specialty tool designed to perform a specific job, we've got you covered. Nail Gun Depot offers one of the largest selections of specialty fastening tools - tools that you can't find everywhere - and the technical support to maximize their potential.
