Handy nailer

Bought this to build a fireplace place mantel with hardwood (Alder). I wanted to get by on the cheap and avoid buying or renting compressors and air powered nailers. I opened a Sears charge account in order to save another $15 on the purchase price. I knew that the hardwood would be a challenge for the nailer, and so I had a hammer and nail setter handy as part of the job. It worked great. No jams, misfeeds, or misfires. It put the 1" brads in almost all of the way by setting it to full power. I did use the nail setter to finish off the brads that didn't quite make it all the way in. The nailer did not make any marks on the wood, as the nozzle protector worked well enough. .It did the job just fine, and if I had it to do all over, I would use this nailer again. It seems to be quite reliable and is a handy tool to have. No regrets.

Craftsman nail gun

I have tried this thing a dozen times and it will occasionally sink a brad all the way in, but ALWAYS damages the wood at the hammer head. I wouldn't have another one if they were free.

Brad Nailer


I purchased the brad nailer with the plan of using it on white pine shelving board. Using 1.25 brads, they would only drive through half way. Not very pleased.

electric brad nail gun


This item was purchased to do small tasks around the workshop where a small tack would be used. It is really difficult to hold a small brad and tap it with a tack hammer without hitting your finger. It performed as expected but it's not intended for the daily workplace. The packaging was not specific with details on brad sizes but will shoot longer brads which is helpful. I would purchase this item again.

Avoid this product for everything other than light duty applications


Bought this product to install 1/4 round around the baseboard of a hardwood floor. Bought 1 1/4" brads (largest the nailer would handle) - used it for 2 days ... approx 150-200 shots and then it quit working - like it shorted out (but no smoke or burnt electrical smell) - Sears took it back as defective and I finished my job the old fashioned way with hammer/nails and a nail set. If you're looking for a serious nailer consider upgrading to the Pneumatic (professional) type!

Great product


This is a great product for the do it yourself handy person. I have only had to purchase two of these over the past 20 years and they get a lot of work.

Good nailer


Does what it's made to do. No issues really with the nailer. Good for small projects as it only nails up to 1 1/4" nails.

1" brad could only penetrate 1/2".


Hardly worth the effort because not enough power.

Disappointing results


I bought this to install baseboards (made of formed sawdust) in my home. First nail didn't even make it through the wood. I pulled it out with my fingers. Second went in, but not all the way. 1/4 of it was still sticking out. As for the third try...Nothing. I mean, it was as if there were no nails in the machine. I tried 3 more times before I gave up, repackaged it and returned it to the store.

Don't waste your money on this item. Not worth the hassle.

Better then using a hammer


Used it on 3 projects so far and no problem. Great for small projects. Saves a ton of time over trying to use a hammer and nail. Makes doing projects by myself so much easier.

review of brad nailer


The first one worked nicely for my project (approx. 200 brads), then later failed to sink brads...returned for new one under extended warranty. The new one has also failed during second project. Maybe the more expensive ones work....

good value, durable, convenient


Pros: Good for small furniture/framing projects. Handy due to the fact that its is electric and does not require a compressor.
Cons: not very effective on hard woods and materials.

Quite good on compressed wood board


For hitting small nails, it does the job. This is much quicker and easier than hitting small nails with a hammer.

Good From Small Woodworking and Trim Only


<p>I brought this because a friend used it in his house and liked it. I do a lot of wood working projects and have yet to be able to make a decision on the air compres nailer I want so I decided to try this out for $50. This nailer works well for small woodworking projects in medium to soft wood and putting up trim and molding only.</p>
<p>Dont buy this if you plan on doing anything else with the tool. It is great when doing trim because you dont have to lug a air compressor with you everywhere. The downsides include the power and the consistency of the pressure. Lots of times the nail pushes the nail all the way in and then sometimes doesnt and I have to hammer them in. Overall it is a good purchase for $50 if you expectations are small projects. It can not handle a wide verity of projects</p>
