  • craftsman finish nailer

    What do you think of the craftsman 16 gauge finish nailer. The model no here in Canada is 351.711750. The body is magnesium. The tool is made by Colovos for Sears. I have not heard of that company before. I have a 18 gauge P.C.

    For my money, I'd forget the 16ga and buy a 15ga Porter Cable. If you call a Porter Cable Service Center you might even be able to find a reconditioned one. A few years back, I bought a reconditioned Porter Cable 15ga for around $100 US. The nailer arrived in like new condition and has been working flawlessly since the day I got it.
    I decided to change calling the bathroom the "John" and renamed it the "Jim". I feel so much better saying I went to the Jim this morning.

      I have the 15 guage PC nailer. It's great but it leaved a big hole for decorative moldings. It's fine for base and casing.
