What Paslode Cordless Finish Nail Gun Nailer is Handyman Best Tools

There is a cordless nail-gun for every woodworking project you will ever want to build. There are framing nailers, finish nailers that use 16 gauge fasteners, and brad nailers finish nailers that use 18 gauge fasteners. Paslode cordless nail guns are available in either straight or angled feed configurations as handy options. All designed with your needs in mind, easy to use and no compressors with their electrical cords or air hoses.

For the new homeowner handyman or handywoman, just imagine for a moment, building a shed or one of the other countless home improvement projects you have planned, such as, putting up some crown molding or a chair rail in the dining room. Using the old-fashioned hammer and nail method like the one grand paw would have used back in the day along with all the headaches it caused. OK, that would be a less expensive option than buying a collection of nail guns, or would it? For my money, give me the modern technology, a cordless finish nail gun.

Let us look at what is involved in Building a storage shed or garage for a moment. Framing a shed using the old-fashioned hammer and nail method, requires hammering by hand a lot of nails, for this discussion sake, say a lot more than a thousand. Most new handymen and handywomen have already picked-up a hammer somewhere. Generally speaking, it is a sixteen-ounce hammer that works well around the house putting nails into drywall; however, these are not the best tools for framing. Imagine going to your local lumberyard, taking a shopping cart back to the lumber department to pick-up fifty, yellow pine eight-foot two-by-four boards. It will work; it just takes five times as many trips and five times the work…

Any handyman, handywoman’s or craftsman’s goal is to make the job easier, not harder than it needs to be. The angled head cordless framing nailer makes framing a shed or garage faster and easier. Saving time and money while doing a better job after all is the reason craftsmen use the best tools to complete all their woodworking projects.

The angled head of the cordless framing nail gun makes building a wall easier. How many times have you fought with a wall stud, getting it lined up with the mark on the bottom plate, holding a nail at the proper angle and swinging a framing hammer all at the same time? Use a cordless nail gun, and never fight that battle again. Simply align the stud with the mark on the bottom or top plate, check for plum and easily hold the nail gun with one hand, pull the trigger and bang the nail is where it is suppose to be every time.

How to use a paslode framing nail gun

How about using a better tool when installing, chair rail, crown molding, door and window trim, than the old-fashioned way of using a hammer and nail set. No more, hammer marks on your moldings, no more misaligned trim pieces, and most importantly no more wasted time or money on replacing damaged wood moldings and trim pieces.

You are the type of person that has invested a lot of money in your compound miter saw to ensure making accurate miter cuts. That is a great first step, but there is more to making great looking inside and outside mitered corners look right. Getting the moldings lined-up with each other, holding them while driving nails with only two hands is a challenge under the best conditions, using a cordless finish nail gun and 16 gauge nails to nail your molding to the wall, build a set of book shelves, install base molding and corner round, is the best way by far, to get the job done. We used a Paslode angle finish nail gun that used 16 gauge nails to build a set of custom closet organizers when remodeling my son’s bedroom.

The under appreciated brad nailer or 18 gauge finish nail gun is one of those tools you do not know how you managed to do without after using one for the first time. Building a birdhouse, putting together a set of kitchen drawers, picture frames and countless other small woodworking projects you build using a cordless brad nail gun become unbelievably easy. The convenience of a cordless brad nail gun, or sometimes called a pin nailer because of the small fastener they use, is great for making those repairs around the house to damaged furniture and delicate woodwork.

When you are looking for the best tools for convenience and productivity, and you are out of the reach of an electric air compressor. A gasoline-powered air compressor is just too big and heavy to lug around. Then a cordless nail gun is the portable tool you will not want to be with out.

Just like the cordless battery, powered drill did for electric powered hand tools. Cordless nail guns have done for air nailers, made them ole school. Kind of like e-mail did to snail mail, made it all but a thing of the past. Embrace the technology it will make your life much easier, and enjoyable in the process…

Enjoy your next woodworking project. Mike

      I have had both 18 and 16 gauge nailers for around two years. For a contractor on the go there a life savor, I have been installing kitchens for lowes for around 3 years they make for a cleaner, safer and quicker job. The only fault is the loud bang and sometimes map gas like smell. I would urge anyone to own one.

      Granny's House If your husband is like me, I am sure he could put a Paslode cordless nail gun to good use. I had been using the ole compressor and air nail gun for years that is, Until a good friend and professional finish carpenter insisted I use his Paslode cordless finish nail gun on my next woodworking project.

      As it just so happens, I was just getting started building a closet organizer in my son's bed room.

      I was very impressed in the way the Paslode cordless finish nail gun worked, no air hose to trip over, no power cord to mess with and no noisy compressor kicking on and off every few minutes.
