I have two bostich nailers, one is a smaller framing nailer. Both work great!! There may be better guns for the pros, but for around the house, how many times will you use it? I think a bostich or porter-cable would be a good choice.

SJ and all,

I have used and owned Senco pneumatic nailers, staplers, and finish guns for some 30 years As a Builder... For your use, look at the availability of nails and staples, cost and etc. in your area for which ever brand you choose . I am providing a link FYI !

Good luck with your purchase which ever brand! (Kinda like Tractors)

What I think Dean is trying to say is that Senco is the "John Deere" of pneumatic nailers, staplers, and finish guns. :D ;) :lmao: :lmao: :lmao: :lmao:

Does your local Home Depot have a tool rental counter? Maybe you could just rent one. If you fall in love with a particular brand and have to have one, then buy it.

Well, I listened to all the rants about Senco and I have to say it is a pretty nice nailer....but....if you want your money well spent then you should go with the best.....P A S L O D E gives you more bang for the buck from their legendary pneumatic framers to their famous gas operated framers.:lmao:

Hey Randy G, I get 1.75% from Senco for my Endorsement, Sounds like you do better!

Listen to us talk about "Who's is Bigger" (just kidding) SJ just buy the one you like and Argee and I will debate this long in to the future!!:spinsmile

PS. Paslode is good also but product is not as widespread!
Now you have the top two names in Nailers!!

To be honest; I haven't the slightest idea of who's is what but I am following along this conversation in hopes of learning a thing or two. I will hopefully be moving to the farm soon and I have some fixing up to do. Just might be needing a good nail gun. Just making a bit of pneumatic humor. ;)

well went to home depot.. they have the dumbest display of nail guns.. they have them all up but all clamped to pegboard so you can see them but not hold them in your hand...

the Porter cable is 20$ cheaper and comes with a carrying case... i think its also got a 25$ rebate going..

the bostitch has no case...


BTW: PC has round head or clipped head nailer.. any reason to get one or the other?


I did not see a senco at HD. They did have a paslode but the one i looked at was battery powered.. (that was before i'd read rg's endorsememt..

im gonna go to woodworkers warehouse so i can actually hold the guns and then decide

I have a Porter Cable pneumatic finishing nailer. I have used a Paslode gas framing nailer when I helped a relative build a garage extension. The Paslode uses a rechargeable battery and a gas cartridge to fire. I didn't ask how much it cost, but it was an impressive tool.

I have Campbell Hausfeld finish, framing, and roofing nailers. I don't use them everyday, but they have been put through there courses. I didn't notice them being mentioned to far so I thought I would just muddy up the water a little bit. :D The roofer can jamb sometimes, but only when I let it get too dirty. I little clean-up and it works fine. I used to rent before I bought and used several different brands. They all seemed pretty good (Senco, Bostich, P/C, etc.). The only thing I noticed was the Bostich seemed to be heavier than the rest. This is probably because they have better parts, but for me (with wrist problems) having a little lighter unit was the better route. I haven't had problems to speak of so I think it was a good choice plus it was on sale.

Has anyone else read their instructions about oiling them? My roofer says you can use air tool or 3-in-1 oil. The finish and framers say do NOT use air tool oil because the detergents will damage the seals. I have gone to using strictly 3-in-1 since I haven't found any pneumatic tools that say I shouldn't use that.

Any comments?
