Industry’s Best Pneumatic Framing Nailers by Mallory Kramer

For many craftsmen, a pneumatic framing nailer is one of the greatest tools in the world. Making quick work of jobs that can take what feels like forever, and doing it with professional strength and precision, these nailers are an irreplaceable asset. If you’re in the market for one of the best framing nailers in the pneumatic world, well, you’re in luck. The following is a compiled, compacted set of reviews of the best framing nailers, and their prices, on the market today.

Hitachi’s NR83A2 framing nailer is one of the most high-quality, high-performance pneumatic framers on the market today. Weighing only 7.9 lbs the tool is clearly lightweight and the tool is extremely well balanced for the most comfortable operation and maneuverability. The framer has a tool-less depth adjustment allowing craftsmen to choose their depth of drive, and with an open nose design, extracting a jammed nail is hardly a hassle. The framer also features selective actuation, a favorite feature of most users, which allow craftsmen to simply transition from single actuation to contact actuation for the greatest versatility through a variety of applications. The tool is strong, fast, and versatile, and because it’s also so lightweight and well-balanced, continuous work and awkward applications are far less strenuous. Ultimately, the NR83A2 is a seriously tough framer built for durability on the jobsite and for reliability through the most heavy-duty applications. Lastly,pricing from about 0 – 0, Hitachi’s framer is a bit spendy, but is worth every penny. (Note: This tool is also available as a sequential trigger gun (NR83A2S) for just about 0.)

On another hand, Porter-Cable’s FR350A 3-1/2″ roundhead framing nailer is one of the more heavy-duty pneumatic framing tools on the market today. With the power to drive nails up to 3-1/2″ x 131″ into engineered lumber, the tool has intense power. The framer’s compact body design contributes to its well-balance and overall smooth style while an internal piston catch mechanism ensures each shot is consistently powerful. A selectable trigger transitions modes between restrictive or contact actuation mode, and with a tool-free adjustable depth-of-drive, craftsmen have complete control over the tool’s performance. The tool is simple to reload, and a nail lockout mechanism alerts you when its time to reload your tool. Keeping your materials protected during work, the framer also has a (tool-free, adjustable) exhaust and a (removable) non-marring nose tip, and also having on-tool storage, the FR350AR is endlessly convenient. Ranging in price from about 0 – 0, the framer is abrilliant tool at a certainly reasonable price.

The FR350A is also available reconditioned (FR350AR) for just about 0. As a reconditioned tool, this nailer presents a truly superior value to craftsmen and builders. For those unfamiliar with recons, they are an extremely great value that bring craftsmen the highest-performance tools at a tiny fraction of regular cost. Reconditioned tools, for some minor cosmetic or technical defect, have been returned to the manufacturer. There, they undergo a series of stringent tests and retests and restoration processes before being re-released with an “R” trailing the model number. This little “R” (and potentially hundreds of dollars) is truly the only difference between a brand new tool and a recon. The value with reconditioned tools is a no-brainer; when they are available, buy them.

Like Hitachi and Porter-Cable, Senco is known for building some of the best pneumatic tools and nailers in the industry. With well-seasoned experience and superior craftsmanship, Senco is an steadfast contender in the world of pneumatics. Pricing from about 0 – 0, their SN902XP framing nailer is a brilliant and saucy little tool with 904 in/lbs of power in a compact, 7.3 lb package. This round head framer is also built with a innovated design that requires up to fifteen-percent less air than other comparable models, and still having the power to drive 2 – 3-1/4″ (round head plastic collated) framing nails with fast efficiency, the nailer perfectly unites precision power and lightweight convenience. The nailer also drives 2″-3-1/2″ smooth shank nails and 2″-3″ ring shank nails. The tool’s compact design also contributes to its ability to work in tight spaces in between studs and joists, and its overall balance and ease of operation. Additionally, the gun is easy to transition from rapid fire to sequential fire and is simple to load and unload for optimal convenience on the job. The SN902XP is ideal for a huge number of applications from framing, fencing and subfloors, to trusses and decking. It additionally has a patented TrueDrive magazine to prevent jamming and an adjustable depth of drive for unfailing precision with every shot. Like the above Porter-Cable nailer, Senco’s SN902XP is also available reconditioned (if you can find it) for about 0.

In the end and whatever your needs may be, one of these nailers is certain to be an ideal framer. With big power, acute precision, and the accountability of a time-honored manufacturer, these pneumatic framing nailers are the best of the best.

Renegade99 asked can i use petrol or diesel to degrease my nail gun?

the brand ( paslode) charges an arm and a leg for thier “special” degreaser.

i was wondering if i can use any type of degreaser on the market because my nail gun does ant have any rubber parts in it, its all steel and alloy inner-workings.

i was also told that you can degrease steel and alluminum parts in deisel or petrol, is this true?

if so then i might aswell do that.

And got the following answer:

I would NOT use petrol….to much of a fire hazard.

Try brake parts cleaner…it cleans brake shoes,and parts.

There is also engine degreaser, in a spray can…spray lots and let it set, then wipe off.

Carburetor cleaner is good for some things also…cleans outsides of carbs, removes gas stains.

But brake cleaner works for me, in lots of places. Sold in auto parts stores, in spray cans.

Mitchy asked What is the best way to install flooring nails level, without a nail gun?

I got a very nice air compressor just didn’t buy a nail gun yet. Can I use a hammer to get the floor nails level or slightly under subfloor?

Thanks!

And got the following answer:

From you question it is not clear what you are actually installing.

If you are using tongue and groove hardwood flooring, you really need an appropriate flooring nailer. Nailing through the tongue not only hides the nails, it helps hold the flooring tight together as well.

The action used for a flooring nailer helps pull the boards together. Instead of just pulling a trigger, you usually hit the nailer with a mallet, which drives the boards together as the nail is placed.

If you are installing sub-floor, you are fine without a nail gun. One extra blow from the hammer will set the nail just fine and leave a small dimple in the sub-floor. The dimple is not a problem. The sub-floor does not need to be perfect for carpet or hardwood. You will need to put down a backer for tile or vinyl, so it is not a problem for those either. Do make sure you use a good adhesive for sub-floor in addition to nailing.

Pete Smithy asked What kind of nails can i use to nail down new carpeting?

i have cut the carpet and its all ready to be set and nailed, but i dont have one of those nail guns and i was wondering is there a type of nail you can buy to hammer nails into carpeting so it will be held down good?

And got the following answer:

And you don’t have and can’t rent a carpet stretcher so you can anchor it to nail strips placed along by the walls? This would be by far the best way of doing it. If not, then look for something called carpet tacks.

/p

BTRUE asked What do I use to put nails through the baseboards?

I installed ceramic tile floor in my bathroom and I’m trying to put the wooden baseboards around; however, I’m having a hard time hammering the nails in. I’m also afraid of hammering the tiles. Should I use a nail gun? Thx

And got the following answer:

Drill small holes. Use a bit that makes a hole the nail will fit tight in. I don’;t know how experienced you are, but in case you’re a newbie, use a nail set with the hammer so you don’t dent the baseboard, and hammer the nail all the way in. You’ll probably still have to fill in tiny dents with spackling, and retouch the paint, but done correctly, you shouldn’t even see where the nails are when you’re done..

Heidiva asked My first collection of power tools: What should I buy?

I want to be “handy” around the house–I live in the country, by the way, in the rural mountains, and I have to do a lot of thing around here myself. What is the definitive list of tools that I should get to start my collection? Preferably, I would have a short list and a long list.

What I think I should have/want is the following:
drill
skill saw
sander
Dremmel
draw knife
nail gun
staple gun
hammers

Any brand suggestions/warnings?

Thanks!

And got the following answer:

What I think I should have/want is the following:

drill: 3/8″ chuck, not Dewalt or Black and Decker, Battery operated, two batteries, 18 volt, Lithium Ion or better. Get a complete set of screwdriver bits as well as a complete set of drill bits. Don’t put pressure on small drill bits, they will break easily.

I would recommend either Bosch, my favorite, or Makita.

skill saw That is Skil Saw, and they are dangerous. Don’t get a cheap one, but you don’t need the very best. They are available with battery, but get a combination blade, which will come on it, and a plywood blade which will cut down on splitting on the plywood when you use it. If you are cutting plywood, measure, put a piece of masking taple on the wood, measure again, use a T square (a sheet rock tool mostly), and cut the wood. After cutting the wood, take off the tape from both sides. I would get the same brand that I recommended for the drill and make sure that the batteries are interchangable. You can buy kits with all that in it.

sander This depends on what you intend to do. They come in 1/4 sheet and 1/2 sheet size for the rectangular. I like half sheet size, but I am bigger than you are. They are also available with circular sheets, and depending on what you plan to do, get the size you want. I suggest the ones with hook and loop. Again, I would suggest that you get Bosch or Makita.

Dremmel Do you really need one?

draw knife You don’t need one

nail gun You can get a battery operated finish nailer for 18 gauge nails and unless you are framing a house, you don’t need one bigger. They make them that will take up to three inch finishing nails. Bosch and Makita don’t make them. Paslode is a good brand.
staple gun You could probably use the nail gun for that, don’t waste your money.

hammers Get one that feels good to you. Light weight hammers don’t do much, I would suggest 14 ounce to 18 ounce, with claws. Don’t get one with a cleated head for framing

Bosch, in my estimation, mades the finest tools. All are ball bearing and do not have nylon bushings like the cheaper brands. I have dropped my drill from a 30 foot ladder and gone down and got it and it still works. Of the other brands, I would dodge Dewalt (which both Home Depot and Lowes will shove in your face), but they are cheaply made. Hitachi is good, Makita is good. Porter Cable and Delta tools are made by Dewalt now.

Never buy brands you have not heard of. Don’t buy Ryobi, GNC, or anything like those.

The only other tool that I would recommend is a Bosch Scroll Saw, or hand Jig Saw. They are more expensive, but again, they don’t break. They have an older model, which I can’t remember the number, and a brand new model where the blade just pops out when you switch a lever, I would recommend eithe rof those, I have one of each.

Now for the safety lesson: Watch out for cords, use safety glasses, watch yourself with the nail gun, and don’t let a sander sit in one place to long while you are sanding.
