Looking through Rocklers sale items they have their PK pin nailer # pin100 on sale. It sure has been a pleasure to use the one I have and the holes are almost invisible. Sometimes I don't even worry to fill them..

  Thinking out loud.

I use an air regulator for I have different brands for all sizes nails and brads.

I met Norton Rockler once. I'd venture that darned few people get a kick back from that company.

And the few that do, it's probably not much.

I just now opened that Rockler Sales flyer email. When I clicked on the link which takes you to the description page, it now shows No Longer Available. Apparently a limited number and a form of an on-line Flash Sale???

 

I was lucky enough to score one of these some time back at our local Pawn Store...Like new, in the case with book, tool set, etc. They had $35 on it...bought it for $30 plus tax. I thought it was screwed up until I figured out air-pressure is critical. Once I set the regulator down it worked perfectly. Great tool.

 

I know I'll take a beating for this but oh well, takes the heat off someone else.:P A year or so before I found the PC, I bought the H-F 23 ga. pin nailer...had a coupon and think I gave $14.99 plus tax for it. It does an equally nice job...maybe leave a bit more of hole opening but it was $15...never, ever has mis-fired as long as the air pressure is properly regulated. I usually forget to turn pressure down but eventually remember.

Just have to keep your fingers out of the way, sometimes those small gage brads have a mid of their own and want to curl back and look at you.

Yes and with the 1/2" long pin it will go through what a person is trying to hold together if he don't cut that air way down..

So you've done it too...guess I'm in good company then.:P

I use the H-F 3 gal pancake compressor on this and other finish nailers. I've even used it with It with my framing nailer and roofing nailer. Works great with them all. I bought it over 8 years ago.

It has a built in regulator which is pretty darn accurate. 

It does not have a built in reminder to use it though.:lol:

I'll take some heat, also. I picked one up just to see how it would do. It works fine for what it is, but I don't use the HF pins in it...do yourself a favor and buy a different brand. If and when it bites the dust then I'll just file it in the round cabinet. Until then I'll use it for small part glue-ups.

Me too, Gene. I always said, that, if I was going to be accused of something, I might as well go ahead and do it.

 

please make sure there's enough in it for EOD beers or what not for the rest of us...
