• 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 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.

  • What Cordless Nail Gun Should I Buy?

    It's hard to ignore the increasing presence of cordless tools coming to market. Today, let's take a look at those different types of cordless nailers. We'll look at brand, product application, and variation(s) of cordless technology available. Let's start by breaking down the core categories of cordless.

    Senco Cordless Battery

    Framing Nailers & Metal Connecting Nailers


    Cordless framing nailers have improved quite a bit since the first Paslode Impulse tool was released in July of 1986 - nearly 30 years ago to the day. Today, Paslode cordless tools have improved in every possible way: lighter body, longer battery life, quicker recharge time and more. The CF325XP (905600) is Paslode's current contender in a long running legacy of cordless framing tools. Powered by lithium-ion battery and orange framing fuel cell, the CF325XP is designed for heavy-duty, everyday use.

    Paslode CF325XP

    While Paslode has dominated this segment of the market for many years, another key player is quickly gaining notoriety for their contractor-grade cordless technology. That's right, we're talking about our friends at Dewalt. Currently on their second generation lithium-ion framing tool, Dewalt's MAX XR battery boasts more power and longevity than ever before. Dewalt has also managed to eliminate the need for a fuel cell, without compromising performance. Dewalt's system is as simple as plug-and-play. With the recent release of their DCN693M1 cordless metal connecting nailer - the first of its kind - we've got a hunch this won't be the last cordless nailer from Dewalt.

    Our Recommendation:

    If you don't mind occasionally replacing a fuel cell, Paslode has led cordless framing sales for decades. For tried and tested quality, Paslode is a sure shot.

    Dewalt DCN693 App

    If you're looking for the latest technology, there's no doubt that Dewalt offers a game changer. The MAX XR battery system eliminates the need for fuel cell, and offers improved driving force and length of time between charging cycles.


    Finish & Brad Nailers


    Unlike the cordless framing market, you'll see a lot more competition when comparing cordless finish and trim nailers. Two main factors dictate the widespread growth for this segment of the industry - market share and tool design. Generally speaking, the market for finish and trim nailers is infinite. Between contractors, weekend warriors, and woodworking hobbyists, there is always a demand for finish nailers. Paired with the fact they require much less energy to drive small finish or brad nails into place, you have a recipe for success.

    Grex Cordless Comparison Side-By-Side

    Just like the framing nailers above, most cordless finish nailers come in the same two variations, either with fuel cell and battery, or powered by battery only. Grex recently launched the GC1850 cordless brad nailer, which is powered by fuel cell and AAA battery power only! Don't worry about constantly replacing those AAA's in the Grex either, this cordless brad nailer is rated to run up to 50,000 shots per battery cycle.

    Looking at fuel cell finish nailers, Paslode once again leads the industry with its lineup of lithium-ion tools. Introduced to replace the aging line of Paslode Impulse nailers, these new lithium-ion powered tools are lean and efficient. The most recent addition to Paslode is their all-new 18 gauge brad nailer, the IM200Li (918000). Featuring several benefits over its predecessor, the Paslode IM200-F18 (901000), the IM200Li lithium-ion brad nailer offers a lightweight design, long-range battery life, battery standby position to conserve charge, tool free depth adjustment, reversible belt hook, and no mar tip - among other benefits.

    Dewalt DCN660D1 App

    Moving away from the fuel cell, Senco and Dewalt continue to battle for control of the battery-only market. A long-time leader in innovation, the Senco Fusion is available in four cordless variations ranging from 15 gauge finish nailer down to 18 gauge brad nailer. The Senco Fusion cordless system continues to receive praise for its innovative features and proprietary design. However, Dewalt recently answered the demand for better, more powerful batteries when they introduced the 20V MAX lithium-ion battery pack. Built to compete with Senco's Fusion, we've seen a growing demand for Dewalt's new product(s) - which includes their DCN660D1 16 gauge cordless finish nailer.

    The Verdict:

    Only time will tell the ultimate winners in this extremely competitive segment of cordless tools. As new technology continues to emerge, we expect to see several new products come to market in the next calendar year. We also predict a full transition to lithium-ion batteries, for those brands still offering NiCad models or similar.

    Senco Fusion F-15

    And, if you're a diehard air tool enthusiast, there's good news for you too. Despite advancements in cordless technology, we don't foresee pneumatic tools fading into the abyss any time soon. With a network of contractors and tradesmen that swear by pneumatic nailers and staplers, we have a hunch these tools will also benefit from enhanced technology and performance.

    So, would you consider cordless?

  • Dewalt Connects Success - Cuts The Cord Again

    The folks at Dewalt are at it again, now to offer North America's first-ever cordless metal connector nailer. Dewalt's hot-new tool for Summer 2016, introducing the DCN693 series cordless metal hardware nailer.

    Dewalt DCN693 App

    Available in two variations, the DCN693M1 comes complete with 20V Lithium-Ion XR Series battery and charger - while the DCN693B gets you the bare tool without battery and charger.

    The first of its kind, Dewalt's DCN693M1 cordless metal connecting nailer matches its competition in range, driving 1-1/2” to 2-1/2” 35 degree paper tape metal connector nails. In the same manner as Dewalt's other li-ion nailers, the DCN693 requires no fuel cell to operate - simply snap the charged battery into place and start firing.

    Dewalt DCN693 Features Diagram

    Other features on the Dewalt DCN693 include selectable firing modes (choose between sequential and RapidCycle modes), nail selector switch (easy switch between 1-1/2” and 2-1/2” nails), tool-free adjustable rafter hook, and dry-fire lockout. A RapidCycle mode keeps the motor running for faster follow-up shots.

    Dewalt DCN693 Action

    This cordless joist nailer includes tool-free depth of drive adjustment, which is quite handy if you find yourself frequently adjusting nail depth for different materials. A stall release lever allows you to release the driver blade in case of nail jam. The DCN693 even comes with an on board hex key for easy magazine removal.

    Another nifty tech feature, this cordless metal connecting nail gun features LED warning lights to alert the user when their tool stalls or the battery is low. Round things out with a speed selector switch, which lets you easily adjust the tool for different nail lengths, and you have the latest innovation from Dewalt.

    Metal Connector Types

    As with other similar tools, Dewalt's DCN693 metal connector nailer is excellent for joist hangers, stud plate ties, hurricane ties, hold down straps and post bases. While we're yet to see some specific ratings from Dewalt, such as battery range and magazine capacity, we anticipate battery life will be similar to the Dewalt DCN692 cordless framing nailer. Although a specific release date is not yet available, preliminary estimates suggest you'll see the DCN693M1 and DCN693B in-stock by early summer.

    So, would you give this cordless nailer a try? Let us know what you think.

  • 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 First-Ever AAA Battery-Powered Nailer Is Here

    A game changer in finish and trim woodworking, have you heard about Grex Power Tools' all-new GC1850 cordless brad nailer? An industry first, the Grex cordless brad nailer boasts a compact design – without sacrificing power, quality or versatility.

    Grex GC1850

    Innovative yet practical, the GC1850 is powered by 2 AAA alkaline batteries and an individual fuel cartridge.

Eliminating a bulky battery, the Grex GC1850 is comparable in size and weight to most other pneumatic brad nail guns.

    Grex Cordless Comparison Side-By-Side

    Protected by a robust metal body, and engineered for easy, low-cost maintenance, this Grex 18 gauge brad nailer also features the following key points:

    • Self-lubricating piston ring and cylinder; Easy driver replacement
    • All-metal body for better durability, reliability and heat dissipation
    • Power to sink two inch brad nails into two inch thick Oak
    • Safety nose with No-Mar tip
    • Anti dry-fire lock-out with ability to adjust driving power

    Grex Cordless Comparison

    The GC1850 addresses an age-old concern among trim carpenters and woodworkers - the need for a lightweight, cordless finish nailer. One matching the benefits of other competing models – without sacrificing the ergonomics of an air tool. This Grex cordless is the first to do both.

    Grex GFC01 Fuel Cell

    MSRP for the Grex GC1850 is $499, though you can find it on Nail Gun Depot with a $438 launch price. Fuel cells are available in packs of four, which run about $25.
