  • Introducing Dewalt's All-New Pneumatic Nailers & Staplers

    New from Dewalt, pneumatic nailers and staplers like never before. A full selection of air-powered nailers and staplers - designed for applications in finishing, framing, siding and more. Tools that are built to last, Dewalt stands behind each of these new tools with a seven-year manufacturer’s warranty. So, let's dig into the Nail Gun Network and see what's new in pneumatics.
    Dewalt Pneumatic Nailers
    We'll start with Dewalt’s latest claim to fame, Precision Point technology. What exactly is Precision Point, you ask? Precision Point technology allows for precise nail placement, thanks to a smaller, tighter nose design – compared to current Dewalt nailers. Among the recently launched Precision Point finishing nail guns, choose between a 15 gauge DA angled finish nailer (DWFP72155), 16 gauge finish nailer (DWFP71917), and 18 gauge brad nailer (DWFP12233). With Precision Point finish nailers, there's no need to compress the contact trip when firing, simply shoot. Get a better drive when working with the following applications, which include baseboards, cabinetry, furniture, trim, window and door installation.
    Dewalt DWFP72155
    Then, there's the collection of new Dewalt framing nail guns, which include a 15 degree coil framing nailer (DW325C), 21 degree plastic collated framing nailer (DW325PL) (replaced by Dewalt DWF83PL), and 30 degree paper tape framing nailer (DW325PT) (replaced by Dewalt DWF83PT). For hard to reach spaces, the DW325PL and DW325PT feature a compact design that allows them to fit into tight areas. The DW325C features a lightweight, aluminum body - that is still durable enough to withstands falls. Grab any of these Dewalt nailers for framing, sheathing and decking applications - and experience the Dewalt difference.
    Dewalt DW325PT
    If you're looking for a stapler, Dewalt's got you covered too. New models include a 16 gauge wide crown lathing stapler (DW450S2), and an 18 gauge cap stapler (DWSL18CAP). The DW450S2 features a power control valve, which can adjust power up to 30%, for precise fastener placement. This 16 gauge construction stapler is great for construction-lathing, industrial-furniture packaging, roofing felt, housewrap, butt joints and more. For applications that require a plastic cap and staple, the Dewalt DWSL18CAP drives 5/16” crown SL style staples in tandem with plastic caps - ideal for applications installing roofing felt, housewrap and thin foam.
    Dewalt DW450S2
    Last, but certainly not least, Dewalt has a new metal connector nailer (DWMC150), and coil siding & fencing nailer (DW66C-1). At only 10.5” tall, the DWMC150 can fit inside 12” on-center joists, as well as other tight areas. On the other hand, the Dewalt DWMC150 is excellent for strapping, joist hangers, post bases and caps, and anchors. The DW66C-1 includes a smooth rubber foot to help prevent damage to a work surface. Applications for the Dewalt DW66C-1 include fiber cement siding, wood siding, fencing, decking and sheathing.
    Dewalt Metal Connector Nailer
    All-in-all, quality seems to be the focus with these new Dewalt nailers and staplers. With several new cordless tools coming too, are you ready to give yellow a shot?

  • Putting Your Tool In A Tank Full of Sharks

    The stakes grew for some, at the STAFDA (Specialty Tools And Fasteners Distributors Association) convention this year, in Phoenix. Literally speaking, we would never recommend putting your tool in a tank full of sharks, but for some manufacturers at the show, they did just that. Of course, there wasn't any water, and the sharks didn't bite off limbs - but they were hungry for the latest and greatest tools and accessories.
    STAFDA Show
    Have you guessed which sharks we're talking about yet?
    STAFDA Show Sign
    That's right, the stars of the hit television series "Shark Tank" made a guest appearance at the 2015 STAFDA show - shopping for the next great innovation.
    Outside the shark tank, there were several other new tools worth mentioning, several of which can be found on Nail Gun Depot - or will be available on the site in the near future. In addition to our announcement regarding the transition of Duo-Fast SureShot tools to OMER replacement models, we have also gotten word that Powernail will offer several comparable replacement tools to compensate for discontinued Duo-Fast items. Among the new Powernail tools offered on Nail Gun Depot, look for the Powernail HT-755 hammer tacker, which replaces the Duo-Fast HT-755 slap stapler; and the Powernail Model 5418E electric carpet stapler, to replace the Duo-Fast Carpet Pro electric carpet tacker.
    HT-755 Hammer Tacker
    Of course, you read about the Dewalt DCN660 series Li-Ion cordless finish nailer, in our post last week. Look for a full-line of all-new Dewalt pneumatic nailers and staplers to arrive on Nail Gun Depot, just in time for the holidays. Choose between air-powered finish nailers with Precision Point technology, framing nailers, staple guns and more.
    Dewalt Pneumatic Nailers
    Last, but certainly not least, be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel. We'll be posting several new videos in the coming weeks, to help answer some of our most frequently asked questions about tools, fasteners - and more.

  • Important Information For Duo-Fast Customers

    If you work within the cabinet, furniture or flooring industries, big changes may be coming your way, as we wave goodbye to a major segment of the Duo-Fast brand. Recently announced by Duo-Fast corporate, the brand will be phasing out most of its finish and upholstery tools, and related fasteners - effective immediately in some cases. Categories directly affected will include construction staplers and upholstery staplers.
    To minimize the potential impact of this transition, several manufacturers have come forward with comparable replacement items. A key player in this transition, OMER USA will continue producing many of the industry-leading Duo-Fast SureShot tools, but with OMER's unique green body color - and rest assured, the OMER variant will be just as sturdy and reliable as it's Duo-Fast twin.
    Duo-Fast To OMER

    What This Means For You?

    Nail Gun Depot will begin transitioning to several of the OMER replacement tools, as can be found when visiting the OMER brand page on our site. The first phase of this transition is currently underway, as we continue to add OMER replacement items when they become available. Meanwhile, we will still offer Duo-Fast tools and fasteners until all inventory has been permanently depleted.
    Because of the limited-notice, we do anticipate a run on certain Duo-Fast products affected by this major event, and advise to order early. Availability is not guaranteed, though we are in the process of sourcing direct replacement products to fill any gaps left in our inventory lineup - both tools and fasteners affected.
    As we enter a new chapter with Duo-Fast, we will continue to add replacement products - and update our customers - as new information becomes available. Please check the Nail Gun Network periodically, for everything you need to know about this transition. We will provide real-time updates as new information surfaces.

  • Choosing A Staple Gun For Your Project

    Everything you need to know about staple guns. 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.
    BeA Upholstery Stapler
    What Type Of Staple Gun Do I Need?
    • Construction Stapler: When you think of a staple gun, the first thought that might come to mind is a construction stapler - in other words, not your average office stapler. Most construction staplers look very similar to a nail gun, and they typically aren't far off in operation - that is, until you load your fasteners into the magazine. Construction staplers vary in size, depending on the project you need them for. Finish staplers are great for trim work - while heavy-duty construction staplers can be used for sheathing, cabinet framing, furniture construction and more.
    • Upholstery Stapler: Upholstery staplers and fine wire construction staplers maintain similar characteristics - in fact, there's even a slight category overlap in some 20 gauge models - so it's important that you make sure the tool you purchase is intended for the correct application. Some upholstery staplers are intended specifically for upholstering applications, while others leave some room for versatility. To make upholstering easier, some models of upholstery stapler come with a long nose, for reaching into tight spaces.
    • Flooring Stapler: Flooring staplers, again, look very much like their flooring nailer counterpart. Flooring staplers are designed for the installation of hardwood and engineered wood flooring. Hardwood floor staplers come in two variations - either mallet actuated or trigger actuated. A mallet actuated flooring stapler requires the strike of a rubber mallet to drive the staple into place. Carpet staplers are more of a mixture between hammer staplers and upholstery staplers.
    • Packing Stapler: Carton closing staplers - also known as packaging staplers - are designed specifically for corrugated box closing applications, typically associated with packing and shipping. Carton closing staplers come in several variations, ranging from air-powered (pneumatic), to cordless battery - or even manual - operation. The size of corrugate you are intending to staple will determine the size of staple and stapler you require. For applications in manufacturing or assembly line production, packaging staplers are also available in bench-mounted and clinch stapling variations, designed for repetitive, high-volume use.
    • Hammer Stapler: Hammer staplers, also known as hammer tackers or slap staplers, are manually actuated tools that require the striking of a surface to operate - in the same manner as a hammer. Hammer staplers are generally used in carpet, insulation, housewrap and roofing felt installation.
    • Cap Stapler: Cap staplers are most commonly found in the roofing industry. These specialty staplers operate the same as a regular staple gun, but also drive a plastic cap in tandem with the staple. The cap provides greater holding power and offers added protection for the staple. Cap staplers are used for roofing felt, housewrap, foam board and other select applications.
    Stinger Cap Stapler
    What Crown Stapler Should I Choose?
    • Narrow Crown: Narrow crown staplers are generally used for finish and trim applications, such as molding, trim, cabinets, drawers, fascias and other fine-grained applications. The smaller crown allows the stapler to penetrate a surface without being overly noticeable.
    • Medium Crown: Medium crown staplers are preferred in subflooring, pallet building, vinyl siding, furniture assembly, sheathing and similar applications. A medium crown offers a wider range of clinch, but is not quite as rugged as a wide crown.
    • Wide Crown: Wide crown staplers and staples are intended for heavy-duty use - primarily in construction, for projects in truss building, housewrap, roofing, lathing and more. Look to use a wide crown stapler for many of the same applications as a medium crown, but where it doesn't matter if the staple affects the appearance of your project. Wide crown staples are bulkier, but offer greater holding capability.
    C-Wire Staples
    What's The Difference In Wire (Gauge) Type?
    • Fine Wire: Fine wire staples are the thinnest variation of staple, generally ranging from 20 - 22 gauge in thickness. It's important to note, that the gauge and crown of staple are two different things. The gauge is the thickness of the staple, whereas the crown is the width.
    • Medium Wire: Medium wire staples are generally measured in the 18 - 19 gauge range of thickness. Medium wire will provide more holding power than a fine wire staple, but is not the best option for heavy-duty applications in construction.
    • Heavy Wire: Heavy wire staples are the thickest variation of staple, mostly found in 15 - 16 gauge thickness. Heavy wire will provide the greatest holding power of the three, but will also take up the most area when fastened. Heavy wire staples are good for applications that require stapling to a thick surface.

     

    Other clamp fastening tools serve as extended family to the staple gun, such as hog ring pliers, corrugated fastening tools and flaring staplers; however, these specialized tools are typically intended for industrial use or manufacturing.
    Bostitch Cordless Carton Stapler
    Just as you should with any other power tool, be sure that safety is your top priority when using a staple gun. Always be aware of your surroundings, how you handle the tool, and make sure you are equipped with the proper safety gear.

  • USA Assembled - The History Of Paslode Tools

    We're less than a week from July 4th, and in the spirit of celebrating Independence Day, we're kicking off a three-part series on the Nail Gun Network, honoring some of the great tool, fastener and compressor manufacturers that either manufacture and/or assemble their products in the United States.
    Paslode
    To kick things off, we start with a founding father in pneumatic nailing - Paslode. The following is a condensed history of the Paslode brand, taken directly from ITW Paslode's website:

    "Paslode's history for innovation began in 1935 when company founder, industrialist J.W. Leslie, felt a key to his company's (Signode Steel) success was demonstrating the product. Unfortunately, his sales representatives wasted time making cold calls on prospects that might not have a use for Signode products. To solve the problem, Mr. Leslie founded a subsidiary company to market shipping room supplies, with the additional intention of scouting potential leads for Signode representatives.

    He called the company Paslode, to describe the product line: Packing, Shipping and Loading Devices. Paslode representatives went door-to-door, identifying likely Signode prospects. The representatives of course also sold Paslode products: stapling hammers and lightweight staplers too.

    Paslode introduced the very first pneumatic tool -- a light duty upholstery tacker - in 1959. This simple tool eventually changed the direction of the company. Paslode's success accelerated the development of a full line of pneumatic tools. Shortly thereafter, Paslode produced the first commercially accepted pneumatic nailer, The Gun-Nailer™, providing the construction industry with a cost-efficient way to increase productivity and reduce worker fatigue.

    Paslode continued to lead the way in the evolution of power fastening with the introduction of its Impulse nailer, the world's first cordless power nailer. Still considered the industry standard by many, the Impulse features a patented combustion motor that provides freedom from compressors and cords - allowing greater safety, maneuverability and versatility.

    An enhanced pneumatic nailer, the PowerMaster™, was introduced in 1995. With its lightweight design and offering more power per pound than competing models, the PowerMaster defined an entirely new generation of pneumatic nailers.

    Addressing the needs of the residential construction, roofing, furniture, pallet and crating, and manufactured housing industries over the years, Paslode has become an industry "staple." Today, Paslode's latest innovations include powerful, lightweight and efficient tools that are designed for all-day comfort and use."

    Sticking true to their guns, Paslode still manufactures a majority of their tools in the United States to this day.

  • Everything You Need To Know About Roofing Nailers

    Warmer, dryer weather means one thing - roofing season is here. At Nail Gun Depot, we've decided to dedicate the entire month of May to roofers, roofing, and everything in between. Join us as we explore everything you need to know about roofing nailers and other roofing tools - when you enter the Nail Gun Network.
    Senco RoofPro 455XP
    What makes a roofing nailer different from any other type of nail gun? The difference is in the detail. Roofing guns are built to drive nails that are appropriate for most types of asphalt and fiberglass shingles, waterproof tar paper and insulation board. Whether you are installing a new roof, or re-roofing, roofing nailers are built specifically for what they are named.
    A key feature shared between roofing guns, they are designed to drive coil nails - coil roofing nails to be precise. By using coil nails, roofing nailers can go longer between refills - reducing the need to stop and climb off a rooftop to refill the nailer's magazine. A coil magazine design also helps improve the tool's ergonomics, making it less awkward to maintain hold of while crawling around on a roof.
    MAX CN445R2 Features
    Don't be fooled, quality means everything for a roofing nailer. Most roofing contractors use their tools on a daily basis during peak roofing season, so it's essential that the tool you purchase is dependable and provides several years of worry-free service. When it comes to roofing nailers, trust the guys who know the business best. Senco offers two excellent roofing tools, the 445XP and the 455XP - paired with a five-year manufacturer's warranty for added peace of mind. The Hitachi NV45AB2 is another popular model that has withstood the test of time. Last, but certainly not least, the MAX CN445R2 (replaced by MAX CN445R3) offers roofing contractors the affordability of a competitive price point, paired with the durability of a construction-grade tool. Any of the roofing nailers we've listed above should provide several years of excellent service.
    When it comes to installing roof felt, cap coil nailers, also known as plastic cap nailers, are pivotal to any roofing operation. Cap nailers drive a coil nail in tandem with plastic cap, providing additional holding strength and protection versus a standard nail. Stinger also offers a series of cap staplers that are designed to do the same - only with staples instead of nails.
    Stinger CN100 Cap Nailer
    Next to roofing nailers, hammer tackers (hammer staplers) are a necessity for any installation where roofing paper will need to be laid before shingles are nailed into place. These slap staplers work the same way as a standard hammer, only instead of pounding a nail into place, the impact of a hammer tacker triggers the firing of a staple into the surface with which it makes contact.

  • 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.

  • The Box Stapler Buying Guide For Packaging & Shipping

    You might be wondering, why haven't I heard of a carton stapler before? The simple answer, unless you manage a packing, shipping, or carton assembly operation - you probably haven't come in contact with one of these tools. Want to know what a carton closing stapler is good for? Well, it's all in the name. Learn more about the different types of carton closers and box staplers, applications they excel at, and tips to consider before purchasing - available on the Nail Gun Network.

    Before selecting a carton stapler, you need to consider what it will be used for. Aside from the obvious - for use with cardboard - you will want to review the average volume of your operation, intervals of use, the thickness of cardboard or corrugated you are working with, and more. For business owners packing and shipping cardboard boxes in volume, most rely on their carton closing staplers to keep their operation running. Carton staplers offer increased revenue potential, efficiency, and provide a stronger seal versus other fastening agents.
    To start, take a look at the thickness of your cardboard. Cardboard boxes are typically available in single, double or triple walls. Most carton staplers can handle single walled cardboard with ease. If you are working with double or triple wall cardboard, you will need a box stapler specifically designed for thicker applications, such as the Bostitch BTFP12182 Triple Wall Carton Closing Stapler or one of the ISM 3G Series box closing tools.

    Next, look at your operation's volume. For low volume packaging, a manual carton closing stapler might be sufficient to get the job done. For medium to high volume production, you will need either a pneumatic, electric or cordless carton stapler. In high volume applications, the option for roll staples versus the standard stick of staples is also available.
    Choosing the right staple for the task is key. The wider the crown and thicker the wire - the more secure the staple will be. Pay careful attention to the type of staple required for your application - this will ultimately determine the range of carton tools you can choose from. Look at the wire dimension (thickness), the crown (width), and the leg length.
    Now that we know the basics in choosing a carton stapler, let's look at the different types of packaging staplers that are available.

    Top Carton Staplers

    Generally speaking, top carton staplers are the most common box closing staplers - especially in low to medium volume packing and shipping facilities. Top carton staplers are excellent for high and low volume carton closing and packaging. Depending on the set up of your workspace, several businesses utilize cordless carton closers, such as the 12-Volt battery powered models by Bostitch, to decrease production time and improve versatility (remember, no hoses or cords).

    Plier Staplers

    These self clinching staplers are designed for industrial applications in packaging, bedding, displays, set up boxes and more. Recommended for light assembly, packaging, corrugated construction and shoe-making. Plier staplers are primarily intended for manufacturing. Choose between models from Klinch-Pak, Senco, BeA, Bostitch and more.

    Post Bottomer Carton Staplers

    Post bottom carton staplers are strictly industrial in their function. These box staplers are designed to tackle a variety of cardboard and corrugated stapling applications on assembly lines, or in designated work stations. Post bottomers are too heavy and bulky to be moved around frequently, so they are generally only used in businesses where production is in a fixed location. Choose between manually operated models, which include several options from Josef Kihlberg, or pneumatic models such as the Bostitch F84-138 manual box bottomer carton stapler.

    Bench Mounted Carton Staplers

    Bench mounted carton staplers are designed for light assembly, typically in manufacturing. They are excellent for clinching end flaps together, five-panel folds, overlap box closure, bag closure, tagging, shoes, and other cardboard applications requiring light assembly. Nail Gun Depot features a variety of BeA bench mounted carton staplers.
