  • What Type Of Air Hose Do I Need For My Compressor?

    Imagine this scenario. You've purchased a new pneumatic tool, go to hook the tool up to your air compressor, only to find out you don't have the right air hose to connect your tool. You ask, what type of air hose do I need for my compressor? The question is simple - the answer, a bit more complex. Let's explore what type of air hose will suit your application best, when you enter the Nail Gun Network.
    Before getting into the different types of air hoses for an air compressor, you'll need to determine which size fitting your compressor requires. Most hoses for air compressors range in size from 1/4" to 1" in diameter. You should be able to find which hose diameter is suitable by looking at your air compressor. Some air compressors will allow you to use several different sized hoses, simply by switching out the hose fitting (where the hose and air compressor connect). Another point to think about, larger tools will require more air to power them, which means you'll need a compressor with more power.
    Coilhose Air Hose Fitting
    Next, you'll want to think about hose length. For a workshop, where the compressor and air tool(s) are kept close together and do not require extra reach, consider a 25' or 50' air hose. If you're a contractor on the construction site, 50' to 100' hoses typically work out better. Keep in mind, you'll still need the correct fittings to connect your air hose to the tool and compressor.
    The last thing to consider - also the area that offers the most "flexibility" in choosing an air hose - the material it's made from. Most air hoses on Nail Gun Depot are made from either polyurethane or rubber. For applications working with pneumatic tools, we generally recommend either of these materials. PVC and nylon air hoses are also available, but are generally less durable and are not intended for high-pressure usage. Rubber compressor hoses are fairly common, generally for home workshop use. Rubber material handles temperature change well, making it a suitable choice for powering an air tool. For more intense use, contractors generally prefer polyurethane air hoses, which also do well in extreme temperatures (warm and cold), but offer added flexibility with less risk of damage. Polyurethane has been found to stand up better to cuts, kinks and more, as a long-term investment.
    Coilhose Polyurethane Air Hose
    Interested in upgrading? Choose from a selection of air hoses, fittings and other pneumatic accessories from premium manufacturers such as Coilhose, Senco, RolAir and others. Our bet, you won't regret it.

  • All-American Fasteners - A Second Look At Senco

    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 - here in 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.

  • 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.

  • Senco's PC1010 Compressor - An Industry Leader

    If you're shopping for - or have shopped for an air compressor, you know first-hand there are more than enough options available, offered in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and capabilities. But what constitutes a GOOD air compressor? Sure, there are private label and "value-centric" compressors available, priced to sell, but why not get the benefit of both value - AND quality. A true workhorse, Senco's PC1010 compressor has withstood the test of time, living to tell the story. A solid, well-built and affordable compressor for pneumatic nailers and more, consider the benefits of Senco's PC1010.
    Senco PC1010
    Weighing in at a mere 20 pounds, the Senco PC1010 oil-free air compressor features an extremely lightweight and ultra quiet design. With an efficient 1/2 HP motor and one gallon air tank, simply plug in this electric compressor and watch it work. A one-year warranty included, this hand carry compressor also features an electric direct drive motor for increased efficiency, aluminum cylinder, oil-less pump, 1/4" coupler, and cushioned hand grip. Pair the PC1010 with applications such as finish and trim work, upholstery, hobbies and crafts. Just keep in mind, the PC1010 is designed to power small pneumatic tools, including finish nailers, upholstery staplers and finish staplers. For larger construction tools, such as framing nailers, roofing nailers, construction staplers and others, you'll need a larger compressor that is designed for the job. Don't worry, Senco has a full spectrum of compressors to choose from.
    Senco PC1010 App
    While you won't be framing a house with the PC1010, most finish woodworkers, remodelers and DIY craftsmen find the PC1010 is perfect for what they need. A compressor that is reliable, low noise (68db to be precise), lightweight and portable, we doubt you'll regret getting your own Senco PC1010.

    Happy Nailing,

  • New To Nail Gun Depot: Stabila Levels & Lasers

    New on Nail Gun Depot, have you seen our selection of Stabila construction levels and laser levels? Don't trust your next project to a good guess, get the accuracy only a level can provide. Choose from a wide variety of levels and lasers, including a full selection of spirit levels, mason levels, magnetic levels, plate levels, pocket levels, torpedo levels, exact length levels, electronic levels and more. Tripods, repair kits and other accessory items are also now available.
    Stabila Spirit Levels
    Let's take a quick look at what each type of level does:
    Stabila Logo
    Spirit Level: Spirit levels fill the broadest range of what can be defined as a construction level or measuring level. Speaking in the most general terms, a spirit level is a measuring device that can determine an exact measurement of levelness based on the placement of an air pocket within a horizontal (level) and/or a vertical (plumb) vial. Most levels are technically spirit levels. You'll generally see levels categorized on Nail Gun Depot as spirit levels if they don't fill another niche application.
    Stabila R-Beam Spirit Level
    Fun Fact: Spirit levels were created by a French inventor and have been around since the Mid-1600's.
    Plate Level: Plate levels are also spirit levels, but they are designed specifically to measure the degree of levelness at wall plates. This type of construction level is intended for those that do wall framing or work with structural framing. The Stabila plate level(s) we offer feature extendable bodies that can nearly double in length. A reinforced frame allows these plate levels to easily measure plate to plate wall height for either commercial or residential applications.
    Stabila Plate Level
    Torpedo Level: On the other end of the spectrum, torpedo levels are much more compact, designed for applications in carpentry or anywhere else a compact spirit level is required. Stabila also offers magnetic torpedo levels, providing a superior grip on pipes, conduit, posts or any other metal surface that is magnetic. Torpedo levels are an excellent option for anyone who wants a compact spirit level to use around the house or shop.
    Stabila Torpedo Level
    Pocket Level: Similar to torpedo levels, pocket levels are designed to be small enough that you can simply stuff them into your pocket. While a pocket level isn't nearly as rugged or durable as some of the other level types listed in this article, contractors are attracted to the simplicity and portability of these nifty little gadgets. Pocket levels are more of an accessory item for a general contractor or carpenter; something they can keep in their pocket and easily transport from job to job.
    Stabila Pocket Level
    Mason Level: Mason levels are designed for bricklaying or similar applications. With a reinforced frame, strike zones designed specifically for being hit with a trowel, an easy to clean body (for removing mortar), and much more, Stabila mason levels are extra rugged, yet equally as versatile.
    Stabila Mason Level
    Magnetic Level: We've briefly touched on the capabilities of a magnetic level already, but just to reiterate, these levels are mostly designed for applications where you need to measure the degree of levelness for a surface that is made of magnetic metal. This applies to steel framing - among other uses. Stabila magnetic levels are capable of adhering to a magnetic surface upside down, designed for hands-free capability.
    Stabila Magnetic Levels
    Exact Length Level: Exact length levels are similar to plate levels, and are part of the spirit level family, but are designed specifically for door and window installation. Stabila XtL exact length levels cover more than 80% of all door and window installations. Stabila XtL expands and locks to the exact size needed for any project. Two Stabila XtL levels cover the same range as the 5-6 level sets normally carried by door and window installers. Consider exact length models a big level in a small package.
    Stabila XtL Level
    Electronic Level: Electronic levels are designed for tech savvy contractors. Featuring electronic measuring technology, two digital displays, an audible inclination guide, and a dust/waterproof body, Stabila electronic levels are the way of the future. Between fast, accurate readings - and the ability to instantly convert measurements - who wouldn't want an electronic level? Just keep in mind, these are not the least expensive option available - but they do offer unique benefits that can't be found on any other type of construction level.
    Stabila Electronic Level
    Laser Level: Laser measuring instruments, also known as laser levels, are the answer to an ever changing construction industry, where materials, assembly systems, the interaction of the various trades, time and cost pressures are constantly on the move. Laser levels do the same job as their spirit level counterpart, the fundamental difference being, laser levels project a non-permanent laser beam of light onto a surface in a perfectly level formation. Depending on the intensity of the laser beam, the direction(s) it is required to display, and other unique characteristics, prices on these nifty devices can range from a couple hundred dollars, all the way into the thousands.
    Stabila Laser Level

  • Father's Day Project: Build A Frame For Your Wall-Mount TV

    Looking for a project to do with dad this Father's Day? You've seen the gift guide, know the date (June 21st - just in case it slipped your mind), but why not take it a step further and spruce up pop's "man cave" with an easy woodworking project that's perfect for dad, son, and even grandpa to do together? That's right, if you couldn't guess from the title of this post, we're talking about crafting a frame for dad's wall-mounted flatscreen TV. Learn what it takes to make this project count, the tools you'll need, and more - right here on the Nail Gun Network.
    Let's start with the basics. You'll need an 18 gauge brad nailer and brad nails, a 23 gauge pin nailer and micro pins, some wood glue, a tape measure and a miter saw - oh, and of course, the wood for your frame and molding. Once the frame is complete, you'll probably also want to stain or paint it, and add felt strips to the inside of the box to prevent scratching the TV once it's inside. Mounting elastic bands (or something similar) to the back of the frame will help to keep the box level and prevent any slipping.
    Grex Pin Nailer
    To start the project, you'll need to measure the dimensions of the television itself. Don't forget to measure depth too, to determine how thick the frame needs to be. Dimensions should be about 1/8" larger than the television itself. Once you've cut the box, you'll use wood glue and brad nails to secure the frame.
    At this point, you have two options, you can simply stain or paint the frame, add the felt lining and elastic bands on the back to prevent slippage, and insert around the TV - or you can cut decorative trim to dress up the box frame and give it additional visual appeal.
    TV
    If you opt for decorative molding, leaving the 1/8" overlap where molding meets the frame, add twice that amount to the dimensions of molding that you cut. Make your miter cuts to the flat side of your molding - this will be integral to achieving a picture frame look for the final appearance. Use a pin nailer and micro pin nails to fasten your molding to the frame. You can also use some additional wood glue to help seal the molding where it meets at the corners of your frame.
    All that's left is to mount the television and enjoy.
    PROJECT NOTE: Remember that the TV needs to still be mounted to it's manufacturer specified mount. The decorative frame is NOT a substitute mount for the television.
    Freeman P7TRKTM
    If you're looking for a great start to this project, the Freeman Tools P7TRKTM 3-Tool Combo Kit includes most of the items required to handle this project. With a brad nailer, pin nailer and tape measure included, give dad a new set of tools to go with his brand new flatscreen TV frame.
    Wishing An Early Happy Father's Day To All,
    The Team At Nail Gun Depot
    To leave the 1/8-in. reveal where the molding overlaps the frame, so weÔÇÖre adding twice that amountÔÇöor 1/4 inchÔÇöto the dimensions we cut. These miter cuts are made on the flat side of the molding so the pieces create the picture-frame look when they all go together. The frame can be fastened to the box with finish nails. - See more at: http://extremehowto.com/flat-tv-screen-frame/?page=all#sthash.LGvTXQeY.dpuf
