  • 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. The tool is rated to run at least 50,000 shots per battery life-cycle, while each Grex fuel cartridge holds approximately 1,300 shots of odorless compressed gas – with no expiration date. 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

    To see more, check out this "Quick Start" video tutorial demonstrating how to use the Grex GC1850. MSRP is $499, though you can find it at Nail Gun Depot for less. Fuel cells are available in packs of four, which run about $25.

  • Everything You Need To Know About Cordless Nailers

    Are you looking for a cordless nailer, stapler or screw gun? Maybe you don't like the noise or cord restrictions that come with an air compressor? While pneumatic tools will always have a place in the construction industry, several contractors and DIYers have come to adopt cordless fastening tools over their air-powered counterpart. The biggest benefit to cordless, it goes anywhere you need it to. No hoses, no compressor, no hassle - as long as you have the tool charged that is. Find out what types of cordless nail guns, staple guns, and screw fastening systems are available, when you visit the Nail Gun Network.
    Cordless Nail Guns
    Cordless technology in the fastening industry is improving daily. As battery technology and tool engineering continues to enhance itself, nailers are becoming more powerful, holding a longer charge, yet building the same reputation for durability and ruggedness that pneumatic tools have earned. With cordless framing nail guns, finish nailers, carton closing staplers, and screw guns available - there are several cordless options to choose from.

    Nail Guns

    Cordless nailers come in a variety of shapes and sizes. From framing nailers such as the Paslode CF325Li (replaced by Paslode CF325XP), to finish and trim nailers such as the Senco Fusion, contractors and DIYer's have come to love these tools for their increased versatility and quiet operation. One big thing to remember if you are considering a cordless nailer - several models require the use of a fuel cell in addition to a battery pack. A fuel cell is a small canister of compressed gas that releases energy in conjunction with the tool's trigger being fired. This is especially necessary in larger nailers that require more energy to fire. Taking it one step further, keep in mind that one size doesn't fit all when talking about fuel cells. Each manufacturer will specify the correct fuel cell for their tool. Smaller finish and trim nailers, such as the Senco Fusion line, do not require fuel cells since they do not require as much energy to sink a nail to its proper depth.
    Cordless Brad Nailers
    Spoiler Alert: Grex has announced the launch of an all-new 18 gauge cordless brad nailer, powered by battery and long-life fuel cell. This tool is lightweight and nimble - we anticipate it to be extremely competitive with other similar models currently on the market. Expect an official release sometime in 2015.

    Staple Guns

    Cordless staple guns are growing in popularity, but are not as common as their not-so-distant relative, the nail gun. Bostitch recently released three new cordless carton closing staplers, the DSW-3522, the DSW-3519 and the DSC-3219. These cordless staplers run on a 12 volt lithium-ion battery, capable of securing 800 staples per 45 minute charge. In general, these Bostitch tools are particularly useful in high-production packing and shipping facilities. For those looking to avoid a power supply completely, there are also several manually operated models.

    Screw Guns

    Quite possibly the most popular cordless option of the three types of fastening tools we've covered, cordless screw gun sales are growing at a rapid pace. In particular, Senco's DuraSpin cordless screw system(s) are among the most recognized collated screw guns in the industry. Senco DuraSpin cordless models are powered by the same 18 volt battery pack that can be found on the Senco Fusion, designed to drive between 500 and 700 collated DuraSpin screws per charge. Simpson Strong-Tie also recently partnered with Fein, to release the first cordless screw gun motor for their Quik Drive auto-feed screw system. The Fein motor is compatible with all Quik Drive auto-feed attachments.
    Senco DuraSpin Cordless
    In wrapping things up, it's only fair to cover the counterpoints in going cordless too. The biggest downside to cordless - the cost. Plan to spend anywhere from $100 to $300 more for a cordless nailer, stapler or screw gun, over the cost of its pneumatic or electric counterpart. If you are only using cordless tools, part of this cost can be offset by eliminating the need for an air compressor. The other point to consider before switching to cordless, be sure to plan for enough battery charge to keep your tool running throughout the duration of your project. Keep a car charger or spare battery on hand for larger projects, especially if you are planning to use the cordless tool for extended periods of time. If required, keep an extra fuel cell handy too.
    All that's left to decide, are you ready to cut the cord?

  • New Year, New Fastening Tools

    We're at it again, check out some of NGD's latest tool additions - including the new Grex P650LX. A new year means new tools - here on the Nail Gun Network!
    NGD New Year

    If you are using industrial packaging tools, be sure to check out our freshened lineup of Bostitch carton closing staplers and box bottom staplers (also known as post bottomer carton staplers). For low-volume, basic operations, Bostitch now offers the BTFP12180 and BTFP12181 manual carton closing staplers. Both feature a second handle for comfort and are ideal for applications where the stapler will be shared between several different work stations. Manually operated, these carton closing staplers present one of the most versatile options available for low volume carton closing applications. Penetrating clinchers are adjustable for either through or blind clinching and each tool comes with a one-year warranty. The only difference between the two models, the BTFP12180 drives 1-1/4" crown C-Wire staples from 5/8" & 3/4" in length, while the BTFP12181 drives 1-3/8" crown SW9040 Series staples from 5/8" to 7/8" in length.

    Bostitch BTFP12180
    Looking for something a bit more powerful? The Bostitch BTFP12182 Triple Wall Carton Closing Stapler is designed for high-volume, heavy-duty use. Features on the BTFP12182 include adjustable clinchers for different thicknesses of cardboard and clinch tightness, as well as the ability to blind fasten double and triple wall cartons. This tool is capable of driving staples up to 1-1/2" in length for up to 1" total cardboard thickness, using 1-1/4" crown SW9060 Series staples.
    Bostitch 12182 Triple Wall Carton Closing Stapler
    A game changer for high-volume corrugated assembly, the FC96EC electric box bottomer stapler covers a vast range of cardboard closing applications - driving 1/2", 5/8" and 3/4" SWC coil staples. Perfect for high-volume carton bottom closing, this box bottom stapler runs 4000 count coil staples designed for high production environments. This staple gun features 24" throat and 40" anvil post height allows most boxes to be stapled in one motion. A clear plastic shield with electrical interlock feature disables the machine when its guard is raised - also featuring an auto-shutoff to reduce machine wear and saves energy. Just plug this post bottomer in and see the difference. Bostitch also offers the F84-138 manual box bottomer for smaller, less costly operations.
    Bostitch FC96EC
    Specific to the floral and dry cleaning industries, Bostitch has added the P3-IND and O-2245 plier staplers. Using a fine wire, lightweight staple, the Bostitch P3-IND is perfect for dry cleaner garment tagging, drugstore bag closure, price tag to garment stapling, flower wrapping, badge and ribbon fastening, and packaging. Similarly, the 0-2245 is designed for fastening applications within the dry cleaning and floral industries. Both tools are rugged and durable - made to handle several applications.
    Bostitch P3-IND
    For pallet and crate builders, Hitachi has released two new tools, the NV65AN and NV75AN coil pallet nailers. The NV65AN coil pallet nailer is designed to drive 15 degree 1-1/2" to 2-1/2" wire coil nails, from .090 to .099 in diameter. Hitachi's latest offering, this pallet and crate building nail gun comes with a five-year limited warranty from the manufacturer. Bringing power, precision and convenience to the pallet manufacturing industry, this nail gun boasts a lightweight design at only 5.7 lbs. - and is capable of driving nails as large as 2-1/2" x .099 at a rate of 3 per second, making the NV65AN both powerful and efficient. A side load magazine and open nose design offer convenience for reloading and jam removal, while its plastic shield offers safety, deflecting wire collation away from the user. Features such as the 360 ° adjustable air deflector and high capacity magazine bring additional convenience to any pallet manufacturing facility. The slightly larger NV75AN weighs-in at 6.3 lbs., and drives 15 degree 1-3/4" to 3" wire collated pallet nails, from .099 to .131 in diameter. The biggest difference between the two tools - range of fastener. You can find both of these pallet nailers here.
     
    Bostitch NV65AN
    Last, but not least, we are pleased to announce the pre-release of Grex's all-new P650LX 23 gauge headless micro pinner (replaced by the P650LXE).

  • 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 the STAFDA show.
    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 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 CAMO stand-up 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 (replaced by the CN565S3coil 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 compressors and accessories coming to the site. For those interested in automated fastening solutions, we have something special in the works as well.

  • How To Get The Most From A 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 our Fastener Finder.

    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.

    Continuing with product growth and expansion, check out our recently updated lineup of Senco DuraSpin screws, bits and accessories. Building on our existing inventory of fasteners for Senco's DuraSpin screw guns, we are now able to offer a greater selection of DuraSpin screws and bits than ever before.

    Another exciting development at Nail Gun Depot, look for our ALL-NEW "How-To" page, which is scheduled to launch in early 2014! Our mission at Nail Gun Depot is more than selling tools and fasteners, we want to create an experience for all of our customers - and part of that experience is helping a customer understand how their tool works and projects to use it on. Building a long-term relationship with each of our customers is top priority, which is why we are proud to offer this How-To page as part of our commitment to serving our customer's needs. Learn how your tool works via interactive, manufacturer videos and how-to posts. You can also check out posts that include project ideas, repair tips and tool safety.

  • Getting Ready For The Holidays

    The holiday season is now in full-swing, so what are you doing to make merry this year? Depending on where you live, it's probably too cold to work outdoors (unless absolutely necessary) - which means it's the perfect time to get projects done around the house, in preparation for visiting friends and family. You might not have time to renovate the entire bathroom or put in a new kitchen, but consider these simple weekend projects that can spruce up your home - and even add value.

    Add a chair rail in the dining room:

    The dining room is one of the busiest rooms in many households during the holidays. Between family dinners and holiday parties, it's certain to see a lot of traffic from your guests.

    Installing a chair rail can serve more than one purpose in your home - it not only adds detail to the room, it also helps to protect your walls from scrapes and scratches. Using a Brad Nail Gun can help you complete this project with ease. Depending on the size of your dining room, installation can be completed in a relatively short amount of time, leaving your room with an added detail that improves its form and function.

    Tip: Make sure the rail is level before attaching. This is a simple step that is often overlooked, but can save time and money in the long run. If your home has crown molding, try to match the color and style of the rail for continuity.

    Redecorate with reupholstered furniture:

    Whether you're sick of that beat up coffee table, or just need more pizzazz in your home, creating an upholstered ottoman, from a salvaged pallet, is an easy weekend project. It's a little bit carpentry and a little bit upholstery. The biggest benefit in creating your own upholstered coffee table (or dog lounger) is that it's custom - you choose the fabric and the details. Inspiration can come from a photo. It can be as simple as that.

    For step by step instruction, Shelly Leer of ModHomeEc (soon to be Home Room) breaks it down from start to finish in her guest post: "How To Build & Upholster Your Own Salvage Pallet Ottoman". Be sure to pay careful attention to the way she uses her BeA 71/16-436LN long nose upholstery stapler.

    Build a new mantel for the fireplace:

    This might be a bit harder for the average DIYer, but can add tons of character to your home if completed properly. If you don't have a fireplace, you can improvise by building shelving to display decorations and other knickknacks.

    Design the mantel to fit your style and character - there are a lot of sites online that can fuel your inspiration. Once you have selected the perfect design for your home, plan to invest at least five to ten hours (or more) into this project.

    A finish nailer, such as the Bostitch N62FNK-2 will most likely be your tool of choice when assembling the big parts - although you might also consider a Pin Nailer, such as the Grex P650L 23ga. Pinner, if attaching smaller, more intricate details - such as trim.

    Tip: Some people prefer to paint their mantel rather than stain it; keep this in mind as you visualize what the finished project will look like. Depending on the design you choose, you might have to paint or stain the materials prior to assembling.

    Good Luck & Happy Holidays,
