  • Paslode Transitions To Lithium-Ion Cordless Power

    Remember when Paslode first released its industry-changing cordless Impulse nailers? Nailing was never the same.

    Yet again, Paslode is raising the stakes, taking their cordless nailers into the 21st Century with lithium-ion power. Just like before, each Paslode cordless tool still requires a fuel cell to operate; but now offers better range and improved ergonomics. The transition was recently completed, when Paslode released their IM200-Li cordless brad nailer.

    Paslode IM200-Li

    "Why Choose Paslode Cordless? Paslode Cordless offers durable and lightweight solutions to your everyday work. Not only does Paslode Cordless offer more balance and control, but it was made to withstand the tough jobsite conditions. Paslode Cordless Systems were built to keep up with you." ~ Paslode.com

    Paslode IM250S-Li

    Let's take a closer look at the full Paslode Li-Ion cordless lineup:

    When it comes to framing, Paslode's cordless framing nailer has enjoyed one of the longest running success stories in the business. The current generation Paslode CF325XP, which recently replaced the CF325-Li, offers the same benefits as its predecessor, but with 15% increased driving power, low temperature usability (tool works in conditions down to 14 degrees Fahrenheit - when using CF325 all-season orange fuel cell), and up to 50% longer run time per battery charge. Eligible for Paslode's 2 Year Service Promise, the CF325XP (905600) is also backed by a standard five-year warranty. This Paslode framing nailer is tried, tested - and now better than ever before.

    Paslode CF325XP

    Paslode doesn't stop with framing. Now boasting a full line of Li-Ion cordless finish and trim nailers, the Paslode brand has come full circle. Choose between a 16 gauge straight IM250S-Li (916000), 16 gauge angled IM250A-Li (902400), and the most recent addition - an 18 gauge brad nailer IM200-Li (918000). All lithium-ion - all ready to work.

    Paslode 916000

    Like the CF325XP, these Paslode Li-Ion cordless finish nailers are lighter weight (easier to carry and use), can be recharged quicker, and hold their charge for a longer range of time. Don't forget, these Paslode cordless finish nailers do still require a Pasload Quickload small yellow fuel cell to operate.

    Paslode Cordless Nail Gun Depot Promotion

    To celebrate this milestone, for a limited time get a FREE Paslode Yellow Finish Fuel (816007) or Orange Framing Fuel Cell (816008), when purchasing ANY Paslode lithium-ion framing or finish nailer on Nail Gun Depot. Deal starts Friday (7/22/16) and runs while supplies last.

  • 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.
    Wishing A Happy July 4th To All,

  • 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?

  • 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 (replaced by the NR83A5) 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 F-15 - 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 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.
    Bostitch MFN201
     
    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!

  • Nail Guns - Past To Present

    Nail guns are pivotal to the construction, renovation and manufacturing industries. Without them, production time would increase significantly - and cost to manufacture would go up, but how did these tools come to exist? And how have they progressed over the last 50+ years? Instead of looking at new tools, this week let's step into the past - and see the nailers (and brands) that paved the way for the pneumatic and cordless tools we have today.
     
    We start in the early 1950's, an era known in the United States for post-war prosperity. Service men were home, and were using technology from the battlefield to improve the quality of everyday life during peacetime. With American suburbs popping up sporadically (and fast), home builders needed something more than the hammer and nail to keep up with demand. Likewise, a group of men discovered that the technology behind their machine guns from WWII could be applied to a pneumatic powered tool, the nail gun. Pneumatic staplers were introduced long before the nailer became popular, although both tools run using similar principals of operation.

    Brands including Paslode, Bostitch and Senco were quick to adopt the technology - although many credit Paslode with developing and launching the first successful pneumatic nailer in the 1970's, the Charger SK-312. The type of fastener that each nailer ran also progressed over time, as new technology such as paper tape strip nails (and other forms of collated fasteners) became available. As time and technology advanced, we eventually saw the release of cordless nailers - otherwise known as battery or gas powered nail guns.
     

    What's next on the horizon for nail gun technology? How can we improve on the tools and fasteners we use today? These are questions that constantly make their way through the research and development labs at these and other manufacturers. Despite the field of work, everyone has their own preference of nail gun manufacturer. While we don't favor one brand to another, Nail Gun Depot offers the best selection of all major nailer and stapler manufacturers.

  • The Nail Gun Buyer's Guide

    If you've come to the Nail Gun Depot, chances are you know what a nail gun is, what it does, and how it is used. Nailers come in a variety of shapes and sizes, designed to fulfill tasks that range from framing to finishing to flooring - depending on the user's needs. With a variety of options available, which tool is right for you? Find out the features you need, to take on the projects you want to build, right here.

     

    Types of Nail Guns

    From top-to-bottom, the largest of the nail gun family is the framing nailer. Framing nailers are built to tackle large jobs that require heavy duty fasteners (nails) - such as framing, fencing and pallet building. The industries that benefit most from this type of tool include home-building, construction and manufacturing. Similar to the framing nailer, roofing nailers are almost identical in appearance, however these nail guns are designed specifically to fastening roofing shingles.

    For projects that are a bit less intense, finish nailers are recommended for jobs such as door and window trim, paneling, baseboard, casing, crown molding, furniture, shelving and cabinetry. A close relative to finish nail guns, brad nailers drive an even smaller - brad - nail, and are designed for small trim work and furniture repair. Typically, using a brad nail gun will prevent the need for wood putty to cover up a hole where the fastener has been driven - but these nailers can only be used on lighter-duty projects, since the fastener is not as large as a finish nail. Last but not least, a pin nailer might be your best option for crafting or small trim projects, such as cabinet doors and bird house building. For anyone in renovation or remodeling, having a good finish and brad nailer is key to success.

    Designed specifically for hardwood and laminate floor installation, floor nailers are the last of the commonplace nail guns that most contractors or DIYer's will require. These nailers are built to install a variety of hardwood floor sizes and thicknesses. Typically activated with a mallet, floor nailers are only built for flooring applications. 

     

    Pneumatic or Cordless Nailer?

    The age old debate between contractors, do I want a cordless nailer or a pneumatic, air-powered nail gun? Most heavy-duty nail gun users swear by pneumatic tools, as they are generally a bit more reliable and do not require re-charging on the job site. The downside to a pneumatic tool, it requires the use of an air compressor. For workshop woodworkers, using nailers such as finish, brad and pin models, a small compressor will be more than capable. For heavy-duty, high-intensity use on a construction site, look to a larger compressor, as it has a larger tank and is capable of providing enough air-pressure for larger tools - including framing nailers.

    If you choose a cordless nail gun, you will need to keep a battery charger handy to keep your tool running - once the battery wears down. Cordless framing nailers also require a fuel cell to provide the necessary pressure to drive a fastener. The benefit to a cordless tool, you can reach beyond the length of an air hose and can get into tighter, hard to reach areas. You also eliminate the need for an air compressor with a battery-powered nailing tool. This is generally the appeal that makes these types of tools desirable to DIY builders.

     

    Nail Gun Features

    You'll more than likely encounter some - or all - of the following terms, when comparing nailers. One of the most important features you will want to look for, an adjustable depth of drive lets you select how far you want your nail (or other fastener) driven into the object you are fastening. Another option to look for, directional exhaust plates allow you to select the direct your tool shoots it's exhaust - this feature is particularly beneficial in dusty areas. Last, but not least, you will also want to be sure your nailer has a jam clearing feature - to avoid lost time and/or costly repairs if/when your tool jams.

    Depending on the job your are working on, pay attention to features such as trigger size (if you wear gloves while working), easy adjustment for different nail or fastener sizes, and a rugged exterior design to handle the projects you throw at your nailer.

    Keep an eye out for the length of warranty offered by a manufacturer. Most brands will come with a one-year limited warranty, but certain tools go above and beyond - such as Senco's XP (XtremePro) line of nailers that include a five-year limited warranty, or Bostitch's seven-year limited warranty that is offered on select tools.
