Tool: Bostitch N70 Framing Nailer
Could this be the only tool in my shop that isn’t working? Anything I say about this gun would be speculation because this unit has never fired a nail. Despite the picture showing a half clip of nails locked and loaded, this Bostitch N70 Framing Nailer never worked. Happy Friday the 13th.
I can’t justifiably rate this tool.

Tool: PNEU FLEX POLYURETHANE TOOL HOSE
Date of Service: 2005
That’s what it says down this side of my favorite air tool hose! Don’t know what kind it is other than, Pneu Flex Polyurethane Tool Hose 200PSI WP Made in the USA. I picked this hose up at a local roofing supply and it’s been my favorite air hose since.

Tool: Senco FinishPro 41XP Finish Nailer
Uhm, I’ve been putting this review off. Why? Because this pneumatic nail gun is a Senco and it’s so lightweight and very good looking but there’s something about it’s action and shape I can’t get used to. As the primary means of fastening my work, the finish nailer is my most important pneumatic.

Tool: Porter-Cable FR350A Round Head 2-Inch to 3-1/2-Inch Framing Nailer
Date of Service: November 2005
A cheap tool in a pinch. That’s what I considered my Porter-Cable FR350A when I bought it in 2005. Since then it has proven to be a solid performer despite it’s awkwardly large frame.

Tool: Stanley Bostitch N64C – Industrial Coil Siding/Fencing Nailer
Date of Service: August 2003
The Bostitch N64C is a pneumatic coil nailer specifically for designed for fencing and siding nails. 15-Degree Wire Collated Hot Dipped Galvanized Ring Shank Coil Nails are grippy little bastards that aren’t likely to bend when misfired. The N64C is one of my better pneumatic nailers and my favorite siding nailer of the bunch.

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.

Tool: Husky Air Scout – 1.5 gallon Air Compressor
Date of Service: December 2008

A 1 HP, 8 Amp compressor with a 1.5 gallon tank delivering maximum 135psi the Husky Air is admittedly not the quality of tool I put to the test at work. I left my Fini compressor
on a jobsite and wanted to pin nail
a weekend project together. I picked up the sub-$100 Husky Air Scout for my ‘homeowner’ tasks and, for what it’s worth, I like it.

Tool: Porter-Cable PIN100 23 gauge pin nailer
no images were found
The Porter-Cable PIN100 is one of my favorite pneumatic tools. It’s a very handy nailer and saves a lot of time assembling. I use it for that third hand I always wish I had.
Cabinetmakers take notice, It doesn’t matter if you can’t afford the Grex P635 Pinner, you should have a 23 gauge nailer in your shop.
