    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.

    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.

  • Do I Need A Finish Nailer Or Brad Nailer?

    Debating which tool in the Finish Nailer Face-Off is right for your project? Let us help.

    For detailed woodwork and trim, where you need more holding strength than a micro pin can provide, a brad nailer is typically the top choice among contractors and weekend warriors alike. Brad nails are formed from a fine, 18-gauge wire, which means they are smaller in diameter and typically have less holding strength. The benefit to an 18-gauge brad is its size. Thanks to a smaller head and diameter, brad nails are easier to conceal in small pieces of wood trim. In fact, there's a good chance you won't even need carpenter's putty to conceal a brad nail after installation. A brad nail's size helps prevent surface splitting, which could occur if the fastener is too large for the item it is nailed to. The only real downside to using a brad nailer and nails, these fasteners do not have the holding strength required for larger, heavier projects - such as large crown molding or baseboards.

    Hitachi Cordless Finish Gun

    While the downside to a brad is its holding power, finish nails are made from heavier 15- or 16-gauge wire, which means they can handle a greater payload. For larger trim, such as baseboards or crown molding, a finish nail is the more suitable choice. However, because it leaves a larger hole in the wood surface, a fully driven finish nail almost always requires followup attention - which includes being puttied over to conceal the "shiner" or exposed insertion point of a nail. A finish nail offers increased support and withdrawal resistance when compared to the brad nail.

    Finish nailers will run 15- or 16-gauge finish nails, in both angled and straight varieties depending on the tool. Be sure to confirm whether your tool uses a straight, or angled magazine type. Especially important for 15-gauge finish nailers, determine whether your tool runs "FN" or "DA" type nails, as these fasteners are not interchangeable. Cordless models, such as the Hitachi NT1865DM or the Senco Fusion F-16S (6U0001N), are both excellent examples of 16-gauge straight magazine finish nailers. As mentioned earlier, the one risk to using a finish nailer on small trim; an increased probability for wood splitting and formation of imperfections on the wood surface.

    Senco Fusion F-15

    According to Senco, "The initial tool purchased by most consumers is typically some kind of brad nailer for attaching trim molding. Most who have used a hammer to drive small brads know the frustration when these nails bend - not to mention the possibility for damage if using too much force. The brad nailer makes these small trim jobs a breeze, with high-quality results."

    The fact is, most carpenters use a combination of finish and brad tools. If you're just getting started, it's probably best to compare your application against the tools you are considering. From there, consider the tool that will suit your overall needs best.

  • 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.

    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.

  • How To Select The Right Finish Nailer For Your Project

    Shopping for a new finish nailer can be a daunting task if you haven't done your homework first. While many models look and feel very similar, there are certain features that set one finish nailer apart from the other. Depending on your needs, this can play a major role in making an informed decision - leading to a purchase. Let's take a look at the differences between certain types of finishing nail guns.
    Bostitch Smart Point
    Let's start with 15 gauge finish nailers. These tools are ideal for projects such as cabinet and furniture building, picture frame assembly, trim and molding installation, and upholstery trim applications. Look for an angled nail magazine on most 15 gauge finish nailers. While there aren't many cordless 15 gauge models available, the 15-gauge Senco F-15 Fusion fills the void - quite well - eliminating the need for an air compressor with its 18V Lithium Ion Battery. Furthermore, the Senco Fusion (also available in 16-gauge straight and 18 gauge variations) recently took top honors in a comparison test conducted by Popular Mechanics Magazine.
    Senco Fusion
    Similarly, 16-gauge finish nailers are ideal for many of the same applications as their 15 gauge counterpart. This includes projects such as installing door and window trim, baseboards, paneling, crown modeling, door jambs and more. The biggest difference between the two tools, 16 gauge finish nailers are generally smaller and lighter. Because 16-gauge nails have a slightly smaller diameter, many believe that the 15-gauge nail provides more holding power - depending on the type project you are looking to complete. You can find a wide variety of both angled and straight magazine 16 gauge finish nailers. Another cordless tool that ranks highly with contractors, the Paslode IM250A-Li drives 16-gauge angled finish nails and comes with a five-year warranty from Paslode.
    Paslode IM250A-Li
    Arguably, the most popular among finish nailer buyers who are purchasing a tool for DIY or occasional-use, 18 gauge brad nailers are built to handle trim, paneling, furniture repair and so much more. Brad nailers act as the catch-all tool for finish and trim applications. Keep in mind, brad nailers that can handle a 2" or larger fastener lend the most versatility. One of our favorites, Bostitch recently launched its Smart Point line of finsh and brad nailers. These tools are pneumatic, which means you'll need an air compressor, but offer some of the most precise nail placement available. The advantage to Smart Point, a narrow nose allows the user to access hard to reach areas with ease - while also reducing surface damage caused during firing. Similar to the Fusion family, Bostitch offers Smart Point nailers in 15 gauge (BTFP72155 DA and BTFP72156 FN), 16 gauge, and 18 gauge variations.
    Bostitch Smart Point Nose
    Last in the finish fastening family, pin nailers offer the least holding power, but are perfect for projects that require a small nail, such as those used in birdhouse building, small trim, picture frame work, and light wood assembly. Commonly available in either a 21 gauge or more popular 23 gauge variation, pin nailers are ideal for any application that requires a narrow fastener. Pin nails are also available in both headless and headed variations, just be sure that the tool you are using is compatible with the fastener you are intending to use. When it comes to pin nailers, Grex maintains a commanding share of the market - offering six different models of 23 gauge pin nailer. Affordable and reliable, Grex pin nailers are a safe choice for any first-time buyer.
    Grex 23 Gauge Pin Nailers
    Now that you know the difference between finish, brad and pin nailers - which one best suits you?
