  • MAX TwinTier: A New Era in Rebar Tying

    Rebar, or reinforcing bar, is the backbone of concrete work. While concrete is strong in some ways (compression strength), it’s weak in others (tensile strength). In simpler terms, it means concrete can stand to be pushed more than it can to be pulled.

    That’s where steel rebar comes in. Steel has a high tensile strength and is added to concrete structures to give the needed strength to support buildings, roads, retaining walls and the like. Before concrete is poured and set, steelworkers lay the rebar according to specified building and construction codes.

    Rebar comes in a range of coatings and gauges, depending upon application. The rods must be connected by corresponding ties, a tedious yet important process, to keep the rebar from moving while the concrete is poured.

    From Manual to Power Tiers

    To save costs, materials and manpower, it was only a matter of time before a powered rebar tying tool was created. Tying rebar is tough on the body, mainly the wrist, shoulder and back. For a rodman, or rodbuster, repeatedly twisting metal wire can be permanently damaging over the long-term. A NIOSH (National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health) study in 2005 revealed the potential health hazards and suggestions for making a safer work environment. If a worker is tying rebar for more than an hour per day, NIOSH recommends providing a cordless tying tool and a tying tool extension arm.

    Purchasing a cordless rebar tier is truly an investment. Looking for a strong lithium ion battery that holds a decent charge is key, as is a balanced tool that prevents fatigue and potential injury. Before you buy, make sure the tier is not only fast, but makes a strong, secure tie.

    The MAX Effect

    Without a doubt, one of the most familiar names in rebar tying tools is MAX USA Corp. They’ve been perfecting power tools for more than 20 years. MAX created the first battery-powered rebar tying tool, the RB262 (which used a nickel cadmium battery) in 1993. In 1998, power tiers became available to the American market, and the rest was history.

    Progression Max Rebar Tying Tool

    Currently, the cordless MAX RB398 is among the most popular tiers at Nail Gun Depot. Weighing a mere 5 lbs. and delivering more than 2,500 ties per battery charge—that’s 5x faster than manual tying—the RB398 can hold its own. Plus, it eliminates the need to disperse and cut rebar wire, saving on materials waste.

    But just when you thought they were done, MAX once again improves on their already bullet proof design.

    Dual Wire, Dual Savings

    New to the market for 2018, the MAX RB441T TwinTier offers an incredible output of 4,000 ties per battery charge. That’s a 200% increase from the previous models. The TwinTier also creates a highly secure connection thanks to a dual-wire feeding system, which dispenses two 19-gauge wires at once to form a tie. The tie is 50% tighter to boot.

    Max Rebar Tier with Extension Arm

    Like most rebar tiers, the RB441T comes in three tie wire options: regular or annealed steel, the most commonly used; galvanized with a zinc coating, which adds 40 times more corrosion resistance and is used for moist or marine environments; and polyester-coated wire, which is abrasion-resistant and at least 70 times more corrosion-resistant than annealed steel. The tie wire rolls are changed out in about half a second, an improvement compared to previous models.

    Due to the TwinTier’s patent-pending wire bending mechanism, the tie it creates has a 50% shorter height than the projecting “rabbit ears” produced by older cordless models. What does this mean to the concrete construction job overall? It means less concrete is needed to cover the tie, which further saves on materials. Check out this video from MAX, taking a closer look at the new RB441T. Hear what professionals in the field have to say.

    Max RB441T TwinTier

    Not only does the rebar tying tool save on materials and time, but labor. Fewer tiers are required per job, and an ironworker doesn't need the advanced tying skills and speed of years past. The tedious, wrist-twisting work is done for you - no strings attached.

    If you're shopping high-end for the holidays, our premium pick for gift giving this year is none-other than Hitachi's new lineup of lithium-ion cordless finish nailers. Available in extremely limited quantities before January 1st, this exclusive new series includes the NT1850DE 18-Gauge 2” Cordless Brad Nailer, the NT1865DM 16-Gauge 2-1/2” Cordless Straight Finish Nailer, and the NT1865DMA 15-Gauge 2-1/2” Cordless Angled Finish Nailer. Lose the air hose, compressor and gas fuel cartridges; this series of Hitachi cordless finish nailers is powered exclusively by Hitachi’s all-new, upgraded 3.0Ah compact lithium-ion battery, which delivers comparable power at roughly half the weight. Not to mention, the battery is universal to all other Hitachi 18V Li-Ion slide type battery-powered tools. Pair that with Hitachi's Brushless motor technology, which adds longer run time, reduces maintenance, and improves durability - and we see each of these tools making for a happy New Year. The driving system used in these finish nailers is similar to Hitachi’s pneumatic line, featuring a unique air spring drive system that uses compressed air to drive each nail. This results in zero ramp up time, increased shooting speed, recoil that feels like a pneumatic nailer, quicker response time between fastener shots, better flush driving- even at an angle, and easy maintenance. And if you aren't sold yet, Hitachi is even supporting these tools with a limited-lifetime warranty for complete peace of mind.

  • The Nail Gun Network's Most Memorable Posts - 2015

    At last - the end of 2015. What better way to capture the essence of 2015 at Nail Gun Depot, than to take a look at some of the Nail Gun Network's most influential blog posts of the year. Check out some of our most popular posts from 2015!
    Best of Nail Gun Network 2015
    NGD's Top Picks: Hall of "Frame"
    1. Nail Gun Depot Is Celebrating Its 15th Anniversary: It's hard to believe Nail Gun Depot has been around for 15 years. Launched in 2000, the site has played its part in the explosion of Internet and e-commerce. From nailers to staplers, screw guns and fasteners, we've got something for everyone.
    2. The Nail Gun Network Media Guide - We're Expanding To Video: The majority of our Nail Gun Network subscribers have come to expect weekly - and the occasional bi-weekly - blog updates announcing tool news, product demonstrations, tutorials and project tips. Now, they can expect even more, as we are pleased to announce the launch of our NGN video blog.
    3. Maintaining Pneumatic Tools & Compressors For Cold Weather: If you live in a region susceptible to winter weather, as most North Americans do, it's crucial that your pneumatic tools and air compressors are properly maintained for the cold. Protect the integrity and performance of your tools or compressor from the freezing cold.
    4. Why Every Contractor Needs A Laser Level: The principles of measurement in the construction industry have remained unchanged for hundreds - if not thousands - of years; but materials, assembly procedures, the interaction between various trades - not to mention time and cost pressures, have changed. The precise reason why every contractor should be using laser measuring instruments now, more than ever.
    5. Choosing A Staple Gun For Your Project: 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. We'll explore applications, tools, fasteners and more.

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.
    And with that, we conclude our last post of 2015.

Look for an all-new, refreshed and revitalized Nail Gun Network - coming January 2016!

  • 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.
