Tool: Airy 18 Gauge Brad Nailer/Stapler
Date of Service: 1995
One day I needed a brad nailer and bought an Airy because it was least expensive and I’d heard it would be ‘good enough’. I’m pretty sure the sticker on this one says AMT-6232S though a Google search reveals the same nailer with different numbers like ATA 0232S. I can shoot 18 gauge brads or staples and do often enough with this versatile Airy pneumatic nailer.

I’ve owned and used this Airy Nailer for over 10 years and it still works great. I have used it extensively. Installing thin trim pieces, stapling lattice to frames, stapling 1/4″ backing on cabinets and more. It’s a versatile tool accepting either staples or brads. I carry a case with boxes of staples in 5/8″ and 1″ and brads in 16mm, 3/4″ and 1″. More often than not, this airy brad gun is in my truck toolbox and for years as a sub-contracting carpenter I put this gun to the test day after day and it hasn’t failed yet.
I’ve pinched my finger in the double trigger more than enough but my Airy brad gun has been a good tool with only a few drops of oil there’s been no maintenance for over ten years. From freezing cold to scorching hot, it’s never failed to shoot brads and staples. I can’t even recall this gun ever jamming which seems exceptional. If I could read past the reviews I came across so far, I’d buy the same gun again. I’m pretty sure this is an archived tool. I expect my Airy 18 gauge brad nailer to keep shooting for a good while longer.
