    The most notable additions to our Freeman tools selection are flooring nailers and fencing staplers, many with dual (or even triple) functions. Of course, we’d be remiss to not mention the two new framing nailers, a concrete T-nailer, and two finishing nailer/staplers. Let’s review what’s new-to-us from Freeman.

    NGD Christmas Guide

    Now, without further delay, Nail Gun Depot’s 2018 Gift Guide...

    Under $150—Flooring Tool, Micro-Pinner, & Upholstery Stapler

    We love the Freeman PFBC940 Mini 4-in-1 Flooring Tool, not just because it doubles as nailer/stapler, but also because it's completely affordable. The versatile tool drives narrow-crown staples and brad nails from 5/8” to 1-5/8” in length. So you can switch from woodworking to flooring like a boss.

    Stocking Stuffer: Free 50’ air hose, complete with fittings.

    Grex tools' dependability and power are practically legendary. The robust P635 23-gauge headless nailer features an auto-adjust fastener mechanism and a rear-exhaust with silencer. Part of a special holiday gift set, this micro-pinner's industrial-grade, yet lightweight design, is suitable for craft projects, decorative trim, and light furniture assembly.

    Stocking Stuffer: Free edge guide, a $30 value.

    Powerful but lean at 1.7” wide and 2 lbs., the German-made. BeA 71/16-421 upholstery stapler drives 1/4" to 5/8" staples with gusto. Great for handling trim work, bedding, upholstery, and cabinetry, this dexterous little tool is reliable and reasonably priced.

    $150 to $300—Fencing Staplers, Brad Nailer, & Tool Belt

    Freeman pneumatic staplers make installing (and repairing) fences more efficient, and easier on the user. The 10-1/2-gauge Freeman PFS105 fence stapler and 9-gauge PFS9 fence stapler feature ergonomic engineering, quick jam releases and top-loading magazines, not to mention they're relatively lightweight. The 9-gauge nailer includes an optional T-handle for greater control.

    Stocking Stuffer: Free 50” hose with fittings & special holiday price.

    For those who appreciate the quality and dependability of Hitachi/Metabo tools, the NT50A5 PRO 18-gauge brad nailer is a great choice for the carpenter. Ideal for crown molding, paneling, and window casing, it's powerful and versatile. The NT50A5 even has a thumb-actuated duster for easy cleanup.

    Stocking Stuffer: Free stainless steel insulated tumbler.

    Really, just take your pick of Occidental Leather's awesome gear. Their hand-crafted tool holders are made here in America, in Sonoma County, California. The leather is top-grain cowhide and reinforced with copper rivets. For the greatest flexibility, we suggest the OxyLight Adjust-to-Fit Belt, which has a high-mount hammer holder.

    $300 and Above—Finish and Framing Nailers, & Air Compressor

    Senco's Fusion series eliminates the need for fuel cells, potentially saving hundreds of dollars per year. The 16-gauge F-16S Finish Nailer features a fast-charging battery and nose-mounted LED light. This powerful straight nailer is perfect for molding, furniture and cabinet framing, and paneling. 

    For framing, the brawny Paslode CF325XP Cordless framing nailer offers impressive battery life and runs in temps as low as 14°F. For finishing, the Paslode IM250A-Li finish nailer has an angled magazine lets you navigate challenging areas. Each tool comes with a carrying case, battery, charger, and more.

    Stocking Stuffer: Free spare battery, plus two fuel cells. 

    Finally, we suggest the AIRSTAK Systainer compressor from RolAir. This compact cubical wonder is ideal for carpentry work that requires mobility and a quiet output (70 dB). The compressor rests in a Systainer case with pull-up handle, and has a removable cord that can be stored inside. The compressor weighs about 30 lbs and delivers 2CFM at 90 PSI.

    Stocking Stuffer: Free RolAir T-shirt and limited-time sale pricing on select models.

  • Fence Stapler Showdown - Freeman PFS9 vs. Fasco F46

    For several years, the fence stapling market has been dominated by few select brands. Recently, this niche industry received some new competition, as Freeman Tools introduced their PFS9 fence stapler. The Freeman fence stapler offers many of the same features as its Paslode and Fasco counterparts - but at a fraction of the cost. Today, we're going to put the Freeman PFS9 head-to-head with its closest rival, the Fasco F46 40-315 pneumatic fence stapler.

    Fasco Fence Banner

    Arguably one of the most recognizable tools in fence stapling, the Fasco F46 has earned a spot at the top of its class. Loaded with options that include a well-balanced and lightweight design, powerful motor for hardwood applications, form fitting nose designed for wire fence installation, on board adjustable depth of drive, and a comfortable non-slip rubber hand grip - this Fasco bundles a professional setup with tried and tested quality.

    Fasco F46 Fence Stapler

    A new kid on the block, Freeman Tools' PFS9 fencing stapler is quickly gaining notoriety as key competition - earning its own spot toward the top. Very similar to the Fasco F46 pneumatic fence stapler, the Freeman Tools PFS9 is designed specifically for applications in livestock fencing, field fencing, horse fencing and heavy mesh fencing - among other similar uses with wire fencing. This fence stapler features a magnesium housing, one-piece drive blade, adjustable depth of drive, 360 adjustable exhaust, air filter, quick-jam release, T-handle (for added control), top load magazine, wire alignment notch, belt hook, and comes with plastic carrying case.

    So, what are the major differences between a Freeman and Fasco fence stapler?

     

    • PRICE: Considerably the strongest factor in dictating which of the two tools you purchase, the Freeman PFS9 is less than half the cost of a Fasco F46 fence stapler. Currently on Nail Gun Depot for $349, compare Freeman to the $769 price tag for its Fasco counterpart.

     

    • FASTENER: Each of these tools require its own unique fastener, so know that when you commit to either of these brands, you'll also be committing to their fastener. Both types of fastener can be used for the same application, and both brands of fastener run about the same in price - so it ultimately comes down to your preference of tool. The Freeman PFS9 runs 9 gauge collated fence staples from 1-3/4" to 2" in length, whereas the Fasco F46 40-315 drives 10.5 gauge fencing staples from 1" to 1-9/16" in length.

     

    • WARRANTY: Don't be fooled, the low price on Freeman's fence stapler doesn't necessarily translate to a lower build quality. To make that known, the PFS9 is backed by a seven-year limited warranty. In comparison, Fasco's F46 fence stapler comes with a standard one-year manufacturer's warranty.

    THE VERDICT: The fact is, both staple guns have their merits. If you're looking for a tool that comes with several years of industry use, recognition and praise, we'd recommend the Fasco F46 fence stapler. For those shopping on budget, or who are only planning to use their fence stapler periodically, we'd suggest giving the Freeman PFS9 a shot. With a seven-year warranty and significantly lower price, it's hard not to give Freeman a second look.
