Let me start by saying I'm very happy with these tools. I was worried when getting these strickly because I live in New Zealand so it's not exactly convenient to take them back if they were not acceptable. My ratings: Performance I gave 4, but could have easily given 5 stars. The only reason for the 4 stars is the 16 guage finish nailer sometimes fires a blank. All I have to do is push on the spring loaded mechanism that pushes the nails so it's not a big deal. Workmanship I gave 4 stars because the dial that lets you adjust the depth seems like it will not remain where it is set and will have to be checked periodically. I have mine set to max so it's not a big deal either. All in all I'm very impressed. I have used it on softwoods with no problems and a lot of "playing" around with partical board which is very hard because of the glue content and not a single brad/staple from any of the three guns were above the surface. They are light and easy to hold and seem to have more than enough power. If I had to do it all over again I would not think twice about buying this exact set again and you save a lot over the individual prices. I hope this helps someone feel confident about purchasing this set.
As a professional contractor these are to worse nail guns I have seen in my 36 years of experience. Finish nailer constantly jams and the brad nailer literally fell apart when I set it down. Save your money on this one. Buy some quality tools
This set is incredible. Works better than expected. The only drawback to this is that there is no 18ga. Finish Nailer. This would absolutely make this the perfect bargain. Looked at other brands (Camp.Hausfield,Porter Cable,Hitachi and Bostich) all having sets with the fourth Nailer, they were considerably more. (higher Quality) My brother being aontractor said for the work i am doing this was the ******** for the money. I will get the fourth nailer separately. I would have given 5 stars but the fourth Nailer keeps me from doing that. Well I guess you can't have everything.
These are great tools. Very lightweight, but powerful. Can be used by anyone.
I've used these to redo all of the trim work in my home, and they work great! I've also used them to build some furniture and two headboards. I've only had one jam, and it is super easy to clear. This is a perfect set of tools.
would like this
Bought it for the hubby when he started having problems holding a nail and hammer at same time. Slick tools and great for big projects or little ones. Highly recommend it.
This item arrived quickly, but the end of one of the tools was busted but still worked, so my husband decided to keep it.
These are very quality made and work great. They are a good deal and come with a handy bag to carry all of them in. Another great craftsman product.
<p>I bought this set in early 2007 and put them to heavy use over the past 5 years. They all worked great through their life and were pretty beat up when the brad and finisher finally failed last month. So I came back here to Sears and caught them onsale for even less than they were when I originally got them! These new ones look to be just as well built and hope they last just as long. I do alot of interior finish work so they are put to the test and tossed around sometimes and get beat up, but they kept on working.</p>
