  • NGD's Best Products Of 2014

    Black Friday around the corner means one thing - the end of 2014 is in sight. With the prospect of an even better 2015, we don't want to forget some of the fastening tools that continue to prove themselves among the best, again and again.
    Fan Favorites for 2014:
    Hitachi NR83A3 - An excellent option for framing applications, the Hitachi NR83A3 round head, plastic strip framing nailer is a leader in its class. A well-built pneumatic tool, this Hitachi nailer is one of the most-visited products on the Nail Gun Depot site. It's no surprise this nailer is so popular - after all, it features a five-year warranty, light-weight body, and durable design.
    Hitachi NR83A3
    Senco PC1010 - The Senco PC1010 continues to serve the tool and fastener industry as one of its most popular compressors. This compact, hand-carry air compressor is ideal for anyone from amateur woodworkers to expert craftsmen. Don't plan on taking the PC1010 to framing job (you'll need a larger compressor for that), but for anyone powering a pneumatic finish and trim tool, this is the compressor for you. Featuring an oil-free pump, this Senco compressor is lightweight (only 20 pounds), durable and compact - oh and did we mention it's quiet too?
    Senco PC1010
    Senco Fusion FN65DA - Some prefer to eliminate the air compressor all-together. Cutting the cords and moving beyond the limitation of an electrical outlet is quite appealing to many woodworkers and DIYer's - especially those on-the-go. For them, the Senco Fusion F-15 FN65DA cordless finish nailer remains a top-choice for finish and trim applications. Featuring an 18-V Lithium Ion battery that can drive up to 600 shots per charge - with a recharge time of approximately 45 minutes - the Senco Fusion is a great tool for hard to reach finish and trim work.
    Senco Fusion
    Paslode T250A-F16 - An oldie but a goodie, the Paslode T250A-F16 continues to impress customers (DIY and professional) with its sturdy design and long-lasting lifespan. Ideal for finish and trim applications, don't plan on needing to replace this tool any time soon. This pneumatic nailer pairs nicely with the PC1010 compressor.
    Paslode T250A-F
    Bostitch MFN201 - A tool that does not require a battery or compressor, the Bostitch MFN201 manual hardwood flooring nailer relies on human muscle - rather than alternative sources for power. Arguably the most popular flooring tool we carry, there must be some method to the madness. With a seven-year Bostitch warranty, the MFN201 flooring kit includes a graphite mallet, two flooring shoes (for 1/2" and 5/8" flooring), a heavy-duty carrying case, and hex wrenches. The MFN201 has proven itself a solid flooring nailer for solid hardwood floors.

    Best New Products for 2014:
    Bostitch Cordless Carton Closing Staplers - As far as innovative, new products are concerned, the Bostitch DSW-3519 and DSW-3522 cordless carton closing staplers are among our favorite new items of 2014. The first of their kind, increase the productivity of any packing and shipping operation with these handy tools. Drive up to 800 staples per 45 minute charge. Featuring an easy-load magazine and dial-a-depth adjustment for precise placement, what's not to love about these carton closing tools?
    Bostitch Cordless Carton Closer
    Senco FinishPro 21LXP - New from Senco, the FinishPro 21LXP fills a major gap in the finish and trim tool segment, seated right between the 18 gauge brad nailer and 23 gauge pin nailer. This 21 gauge pin nailer is designed for light wood assembly, craft work and trim. Featuring automatic magazine adjustment, a rear exhaust with embedded muffler, ultra-narrow nose, and last-nail-lockout to prevent dry firing, the 21LXP is drawing quite a bit of attention from others in its class.
     
    Senco 21LXP
    Paslode 50th Anniversary Framing Nailer (replaced by Paslode F-350P PowerMaster Pro - 515000) - When it comes to nail guns, most contractors agree, Paslode does it right. Celebrating 50 years in the pneumatic fastening industry, Paslode launched the F-350S anniversary framing nailer to commemorate the occasion. In addition to it's unique orange color scheme, this Paslode framing nailer also features a new valve design - for durability and increased power.
    Paslode 50th Anniversary Framing Nailer
    Cadex CB18.50A (replaced by Cadex V2/18.50) - New from Cadex, the CB18.50A is the 18 gauge brad nailer that everyone is talking about this year. Featured in Woodworker's Journal (July 2014), the CB18.50A features a combination trigger for single and bump fire, large magazine window, quick release nose for jam clearing, side-load magazine, adjustable depth, comfort grip handle, rear exhaust, blower, 360 degree movable coupler, no-mar tip, anti-dry fire mechanism, and a carrying case. Try saying that list of features in one breath!
    Cadex CB18.50
    Bostitch Smart Point Finish & Brad Nailers - Last, but not least, we couldn't forget the Bostitch Smart Point series of finish and trim nailers. What's the benefit to Smart Point you ask? With a narrow nose that can reach into tight spaces, Smart Point not only improves versatility, it also reduces the amount of damage caused to a surface while firing. Available in a 15 gauge DA, 15 gauge FN, 16 gauge straight and 18 gauge brad variation, there's a Smart Point for everyone.

  • Visiting The 2014 STAFDA Show

    You were probably surprised to see there wasn't a new NGD blog post yesterday. Well, we're making up for it today, now that we're back from STAFDA.
    STAFDA 2014
    To summarize the entire 2014 STAFDA show, we would have to write a book. With several hundred exhibitors - and many more attendees - STAFDA is a mecca for the tool and fastener industry. Every year, the Specialty Tools & Fasteners Distributors Association (STAFDA) puts on the event, hosting the convention in various cities across the U.S.
    STAFDA 2014
    This year, STAFDA visited Charlotte, NC. Home to the NASCAR Hall of Fame and other attractions, here's a brief overview of NGD's trip to North Carolina.
    Charlotte, NC
    As tool and fastener technology continues to grow, STAFDA is a great place to catch a glimpse of the latest and greatest within the industry. Among highlights of the show, we caught a close-up glance at the Bostitch Smart Point nailers - as well as their all-new cordless carton closing staplers. We also saw QuikDrive's new cordless motor (powered by Fein), capable for use with all QuikDrive attachments. Stinger featured all of their cap fastening tools - and we saw an up close demonstration of the stand-up CAMO hidden-deck fastening tool.
    CAMO EdgePro
    From Senco, STAFDA served as the launching point for two new tools, the RoofPro 445XP and the SCN63LDXP structural foam insulation nailer. MAX displayed their completely refreshed CN565S2 coil siding nailer - and Jaaco featured their ballistic pin tool (designed for fastening foam board to wood, steel and concrete - with available nosepiece attachments for washers).
    Pneu Tools
    Pneu Tools also debuted their new concept, a camouflage tool color scheme - pictured above. And we visited our friends at Cadex to check out their rock-solid line of finish and trim tools - including the CB18.50A (replaced by Cadex V2/18.50).
    BeA Rolling Tool
    We also got the chance to view and demo some new and exciting product lines - including products that are still in the concept phase. For 2015, look for new tools from Grex, Fasco, BeA, Everwin, Omer and many of your other favorite brands. Look for expanded product offerings on NGD as well - with new attachments, compressors and accessories coming to the site. For those interested in automated fastening solutions, we have something special in the works as well.

  • The Staple Gun Buying Guide

    Are you shopping for a pneumatic stapler? Maybe you already own one, but want to see what else is out there? If you are researching staple guns, look no further.
     
    As much as we love to talk about nail guns - after all, it's in our name - today, let's take a look at the various staple guns and pneumatic staplers that are available for construction, renovation and manufacturing.
     
    Staples Variety
    Let's start with one of the most commonly referenced segments within the staple gun industry - construction staplers. Available in several variations - depending on the application - you can choose between fine wire, narrow crown, medium crown and wide crown staplers. Fine wire construction staplers are generally used for furniture upholstery, light wood assembly, roof paper and insulation. Using a slightly larger staple, narrow crown staple guns or finish staplers are designed for applications that include: cabinets, casebacks, drawers, sheathing, underlayment, molding and trim. Next in line, medium crown staplers are capable of handling larger, more intense projects including: floor decking, roof sheathing, soft wall sheathing, subflooring, pallet construction, vinyl siding and insulation installation. The last and largest (size) segment of construction stapler, wide crown staple guns are built to handle the toughest of tough applications. These heavy-duty staplers are built for insulation sheathing, wire lathing, housewrap, attaching corrugated to pallets, furniture and cabinet frame assembly, or any other application that requires a wide crown staple. If you are looking for a solid, durable construction stapler, consider the MAX TA238A for smaller finish and trim applications, or the Senco WC150XP for larger projects.
     
    Senco WC150XP
    For less intense projects - primarily those that include upholstering or securing fabric - an upholstery stapler will be your best option. You will find that upholstery staplers commonly overlap with their fine wire construction stapler cousin. If you are strictly planning to use this pneumatic (or electric) tool for attaching upholstery, make sure the tool is specifically designed for upholstering - versus assembly. These staplers are particularly useful for furniture and vehicle upholstery, light wood assembly, dust covers, cabinet backs, felt insulation, roofing felt, molding, bedding and packaging. Our friends at ModHomeEc recommend the Duo-Fast EIC-3118 Electric Stapler (replaced by Fasco-Maestri 7C-16 3/8" Crown Electric Stapler - 63100) for the novice - or a BeA Long Nose Upholstery Stapler for long-term, skilled use. You can read their entire review of Nail Gun Depot here.
     
    Duo-Fast Upholstery Stapler
    For packaging and shipping, carton closing staplers are specifically designed to seal corrugated boxes and packaging materials. These tools are almost always found in warehouses or shipping facilities. For small to medium usage, consider a top carton stapler or plier stapler for package closing. For heavy-duty, high volume use, look to a larger carton closing tool - designed for manufacturing and assembly - such as a bench mounted carton stapler or post bottomer carton stapler. In the Nail Gun Depot shipping department, we are currently using Bostitch's latest cordless top carton closers, the DSW-3519 and DSW-3522.
     
    Bostitch Cordless Carton Closing Stapler
    Hammer staplers, also known as hammer tackers, are most commonly used for carpet, roof paper and housewrap installation. Similar to a hammer, these staplers are actuated each time the user brings the tool into contact with a surface - using a driving force. We recommend a variation of the Duo-Fast hammer tacker (replaced by Powernail HT-750 classic hammer stapler) for carpeting. For roofing or siding, consider a Stinger cap stapler.
     
    Stinger Hammer Cap Stapler
    Interested in flooring staplers? Check out our recent article on Must-Have Flooring Tools.
     
    Powernail Hardwood Floor Stapler
    Branching out from the typical staple gun(s) a builder or remodeler would come in contact with, there are several specialty staple guns available - such as bedding staplers and bar code staplers. Among a class of specialty fastening tools - mainly for manufacturing applications - bedding staplers are used for the production and manufacturing of mattresses and box spring sets. Designed for a different - yet equally important set of applications - bar code staplers (also known as label staplers) are used in construction, pallet/crating, packaging and residential interiors. Designed for stapling bar code tags to lumber, the BeA 380/10-400 is a powerful new addition to Nail Gun Depot's lineup of specialty tools.

  • Must-Have Flooring Tools & Accessories

    If you remodeled or built a home recently, you've probably considered hardwood or laminate flooring for at least one room of the house. A must-have feature in new home construction and older home renovation, hardwood and laminate flooring has grown significantly in popularity throughout the last 10-15 years. We've shown you "How To Install A Hardwood Floor," but what about the best tools to get the job done efficiently and effectively?
    Hardwood Floor
    To begin, let's recap the two traditional flooring tools that are available, flooring nailers or flooring staplers. For an in-depth look at the difference between these tools, check out "The Difference Between Floor Nailers & Flooring Staplers."
    Bostitch Floor Tool
    Determining which type of flooring tool to use is up to you. Today, we're just looking at a few of the best tools from each category, available for use on hardwood and laminate flooring applications.
    Powernail Stapler
    Let's start with flooring staplers. If you are looking for a top-of-the-line hardwood stapler, Bostitch offers an industry-leading line of flooring staple guns to choose from. Pneumatic or air-powered, two top-selling models include the Bostitch MIIIFS and the Bostitch EHF1838K. The biggest difference between these models, the MIIIFS is mallet-actuated (meaning you must strike the tool with a rubber mallet to drive the staple), whereas the EHF1838K is trigger-actuated. The MIIIFS is considered the flagship model of Bostitch floor staplers, but for many, the trigger-actuated firing of the EHF1838K is more desirable - especially for DIY users.
    Bostitch MIIIFS
    If you are looking for a less expensive option, 3 PRO is an up-and-coming brand that offers less expensive, durable flooring staplers. Models such as the 3 PRO S9032P and 3 PRO S9040P are inexpensive hardwood tools that are designed to compete with higher-end models from well-known manufacturers. The 3 PRO FSN50 not only drives flooring staples, it can also be used as a nailer.
    3 PRO FSN50
    Moving into floor nailers, you have the option to choose between manual or pneumatic powered tools. Just to refresh, as we mentioned earlier, pneumatic tools are powered by air compressor, whereas a manual floor nailer is powered by human force. Bostitch and Powernail offer a few popular manual tools, but many opt for the easier to operate pneumatic models.
    Wood Floor Thickness
    Two popular pneumatic floor nailers, the Bostitch MIIIFN (the nailer variation of the MIIIFS) and the Powernail 2000 (replaced by Powernail 2000F) come recommended by many users. Again, the MIIIFN is mallet-actuated - as are most pneumatic hardwood nailers and staplers - whereas the Model 2000 relies on a trigger to fire.
    Powernail 2000
    A secondary tool that's worth considering, palm nailers are also frequently used to secure the initial floor board at the base of a wall. Don't underestimate the versatility of these tools - though we don't recommend using a palm nailer for bulk nailing applications. Built specifically for flooring applications, the Powernail Power Palm face nailer is designed with a special nose that allows it to accept flooring nails, an excellent option for hardwood flooring.
    Powernail Power Palm
    There are many other flooring tools to choose from, so don't feel limited to these models - including many others that also come highly-recommended - so be sure to look at all of your available options before selecting a tool. Also, keep in mind that each of these tools runs a specific range and type of fastener, so be sure that the range is relevant to the application.

  • What's A Cap Tool - And Why Should I Use One?

    If you work with housewrap or roofing underlayment, and still use a manual slap stapler, it's time to upgrade. After all, who wouldn't want to improve their workmanship, while increasing job site productivity? The solution is simple - add a cap nailer or cap stapler to your gang box.
    Stinger CN100
    What's the benefit of a cap fastener, versus a standard nail or staple? With a fastener and cap system, the cap helps protect and expand the surface area (holding power) of the fastener. This means the fastener is better able to withstand harsh weather conditions - protecting the housewrap or fabric from separating and tearing.
    Many manufacturers require capped fasteners be used with their wrap or felt, due to the increased strength and protection they provide. Cap tools can also be used for a variety of other applications including foam board installation, carpet padding and more. In other words, these tools are perfect for installing soft, dense material.
    Stinger Cap Tool
    If you're looking at cap nailers, you have a couple options to choose between. A popular choice among roofing contractors, consider the Stinger CN100. Similar to a cap stapler, cap nailers are perfect for roofing, sidewall and insulation board. Just be sure to confirm with the material manufacturer, whether a nail or staple is required for your application.
    For commercial roofing applications, where volume and speed are top priority, the Stinger RT3 (formerly RT2) is one of the best options we've come across. Simply walk the tool along the line you are cap nailing, and let the tool do the rest.
    Senco BC58
    When it comes to cap staplers, you'll have more than a few options to choose from. Look to Senco's BC58 cap button stapler, Hitachi's N3808AP cap stapler, Pneu Tools Rap-A-Cap 58 (RC-58), and of course, Stinger brand cap tools - including the CH38-2 (manual fire), CH38A (auto fire) and CS150 (air-powered) cap tools. Once again, material and surface fastening requirements will dictate whether a staple or nail is best suited for your job.
    Before you buy a cap tool, be sure to consider the following:
    • Manual vs. Auto-Firing Tool
    • Tool Weight & Balance
    • Tool Maneuverability
    The benefit to a manual cap stapler, such as the Stinger CH38-2, the tool is lightweight and smaller in size - which makes it easier to maneuver. On the other hand, pneumatic cap staplers are bulkier in design; typically weighing between four and five pounds - before caps and staples have been loaded.
    Despite its larger size, for heavy-duty, high-volume use, most contractors still choose an auto-fire cap tool over the manual hammer tacker.

  • Which Woodworking Tool Do I Need For My Project?

    Getting ready to start a woodworking project? Maybe you aren't sure what tool(s) you need to complete your project? Let's take a look at some of the tools you might need to tackle woodworking - whether you are starting your first project or adding a new tool to your collection.
     
    Bostitch Finish Nailer
    There isn't one specific woodworking tool that is more important than another for your workshop - it really just depends on the project you are looking to take on. Unless you get a battery-powered, cordless fastening tool, you will need an air compressor to power any nail gun or staple gun you purchase. If you get a screw gun, such as Senco DuraSpin, you can choose between battery or electric power - in other words, no need for an air compressor.

    If you are just getting into woodworking or DIY projects around the home, you will probably want to start with a finish, brad or pin nailer, as these tools are most commonly selected for smaller woodworking projects such as furniture and cabinet building, trim work and craft projects.

    Looking for something a bit larger to build? For sheds, home additions, tree houses - or anything else that requires a structural frame - you will need a framing nailer. These nail guns have the power to drive large framing nails, which are minimum-mandatory for any structural project. Once a structure has been framed, you might find a screw gun useful for adding any finishing touches to your project, such as drywall, deck boards, subfloor and more.
     
    Similar to a finish nailer, you might also consider a finish stapler - depending on the small project you are working on. Staple guns can be particularly useful for furniture and upholstery projects. Upholstery staplers are an absolute must-have tool if you are considering refinishing a chair or sofa.
     
    Duo-Fast Furniture
    Last, but not least, don't rule out a palm nailer as a viable option for less intense projects - particularly ones that require touch-up with hard to reach areas. A palm nailer is typically used for framing, decking, fencing, pole barns, metal connector straps and other similar applications. While palm nail guns don't offer the benefit of a collated drive to hold a large capacity of fasteners, palm nailers are small, and capable of reaching hard to access areas - where a large tool would not be able to fit. Another benefit to palm nailers, you can find most priced below $100.

  • How To Get The Most From Your Pneumatic Staple Gun

    Are you learning how to use a pneumatic stapler? Get the most out of your staple gun - find out how right here on the Nail Gun Network, by Nail Gun Depot.
    Let's start with loading the tool. Loading a staple gun can vary from tool to tool; however, the following provides general instruction for loading a typical pneumatic stapler.

    Before you start, it's crucial that you have the proper staples. The type of staple that your tool takes will vary from model to model, and manufacturer to manufacturer. Check your tool's specs or manual if you are confused about the type of staple it takes.You can also search for your tool's staples using the Fastener Finder on NGD.

    Once you have identified the correct staples, you need to load them. Most staple guns come in either a top or bottom loading variation. Medium and heavy wire pneumatic staplers generally load from the top, while most fine wire staplers load from the bottom.

    Before loading, be sure to disconnect the air supply and keep the stapler pointed away from you at all times - as you should for any firing tool.

    For a top loading stapler, pull the magazine follower back until it locks into position. After the follower is locked into position, place the strip of staples over the magazine rail. The staples should move freely, back and forth on the rail. The last step is to unlock the follower and release it - so that it pushes the staples into the nose of the staple gun for firing.

    If you have a bottom load stapler, locate the release first - which is generally found at the rear of magazine. Depress the release and slide the magazine rail away from the nose. Turn the stapler upside down and insert the staples into the channel, towards the nose of the stapler. Make sure the pointed ends of the staples are loaded - so they will fire into your application. After the staples have been loaded, slide the magazine rail back, towards the nose, until it locks into place. Now you are ready to connect your air supply and test fire.

    Staple guns are designed for a variety of applications, from upholstering furniture to decking and siding applications. With more than 200 available options on NGD, we're confident you can find the right stapler to get your project done right.
