July 22, 2014 : The Senco DuraSpin Screw Gun & Fastener Buyer's Guide

The Senco DuraSpin Screw Gun & Fastener Buyer's Guide

If you are working with drywall, building a deck, or installing subfloor, chances are you will be using a screw gun or collated screw fastening system. While there are more than a handful of options available to consumers, a rising star in the segment, you should consider the Senco DuraSpin lineup of collated screw fastening tools. With a recently refreshed product line (within the last year or so), Senco's DuraSpin tools are ready to stand up to the projects your throw at them.
 
You can see Nail Gun Depot's full-line of Senco DuraSpin screw guns here.
 
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? Senco's DuraSpin has a solution for that too, with one of their auto-feed attachments. Available as an attachment (DS320) or as a full kit with power screw driver included (DS440-AC), there are a variety of options available to suit different degrees of demand.
 
 
When we start talking about features, DuraSpin doesn't fall short of the mark either. One of our favorites, 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 DS440-AC or one of the auto-feed attachments 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.
 
 
Now that we know more about the DuraSpin tools, what about the screws? Nail Gun Depot offers more than 80 variations of DuraSpin screw, designed for drywall, wood and metal - for both interior and exterior applications. Available in a plethora of shapes, sizes, material - and even color - there is a DuraSpin screw that will meet the needs of your project application.
 
 
Need an accessory? DuraSpin collated screw fastening tools have a selection of replacement bits, attachments, washers and other parts that can be acquired individually - to deck out your decking tool. You can check out a variety of available DuraSpin bits here.

July 8, 2014 : What's A Hog Ring Tool Used For?

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.

July 1, 2014 : American Made Fasteners - A Senco Tradition

American Made Fasteners - A Senco Tradition

This Friday is Independence Day, July Fourth, a time in America where we celebrate the birth of the United States - and everything the nation has come to represent. For many, the term "Made in America" is still a deciding factor when making a product purchase, whether it's a truck, tool - or even a fastener. One of the last large-scale examples of a fastener manufacturer that is "Made in America," Senco Brands, located in Cincinnati, produces more than 80 percent of their fasteners (Nails & Staples), right here in the State of Ohio.
 
 
One of the largest fastener production plants in the U.S., the Senco factory spans a whopping 500,000 square feet - and includes fastener manufacturing, tool research and development (not production), a warehouse and office space.
 
 
The trip each American made fastener makes at the Senco plant is as follows. Starting off as a spool of metal wire, each collated fastener journeys through the plant, as it goes from unrecognizable wire to the nails and staples that help build America's infrastructure.
 
 
The wire enters a machine that cuts the thread into partially finished nails, including head, shank and point. From there, the nails go onto a conveyor that sorts and organizes them - so that they are all facing the same direction as required for collation. Each fastener then goes through a finishing process - prior to being prepared for collation. For Wire Coil Nails, the fasteners are then welded to a wire and spun into coils - keep in mind this process varies depending on the type of collation for a fastener (adhesive for staples, paper-tape strip nails, etc). Once the collated nails are complete, they are packaged and stored for delivery to distributors, such as Nail Gun Depot.
 
 
A fascinating process, this short video highlights Senco's American Made Tradition.
