I have been using this nail gun for two years now and haven't had a single problem. I highly recommend it. I'm a DIYer in my free time and this tool has never let me down. It's the best price on the market without giving up anything.
My old nailer quit right in the middle of a job. I was surprised by the low price of the nailer at Home Depot. After reading all the good reviews, I ordered it. I admit I was a bit skeptical given the price of all the other nailers I had checked out in the various big-box stores. But, when it arrived and was put to use, it out performed the old one that cost three times as much. I'm very satisfied with the nailer and expect to be using it for years to come. I'm just a work-at-home person but when you want a brad nailer to work every time, this one will do the job.
I didn't want to spend a lot of money because I just needed to install some molding at my son's condo. After reading the other reviews I decided to take a chance, and I'm happy that I did. The nailer worked perfectly each and every time. I installed the molding much faster than without the nailer, no split wood, no bent nails, no fingers hit with a hammer.
Pros: Easy to Use, Accurate, Good Size & Weight, inexpensive
I bought this brad nailer just for the sole purpose of putting up trim during a remodel. I expected it to be a cheap throw away tool I would use for one job, man was I mistaken. This gun performed better than expected and I have used it not only for trim, but to rehab some old furniture too. Never have had a jam or misfire. This gun is a great gun at a great price. This is also one of the few 18 gauge brad nailers that can shoot 2" brads.
Bought this nail gun to build a fence in my backyard. After reading the strong reviews, seeing the price (especially compared to others), and knowing that I would only use it occasionally, it was a no brainer.
It worked like a charm and made the job a breeze. The tank I used was probably a little small for the job. I had to keep turning it back on after ~30 nails - this could be normal for all I know, but it was the only thing that slowed me down.
If I had to give the engineers one piece of feedback, it would be for the rubber handle. The grip is helpful but it slid up the handle and got bunched at the top. It didn't affect how I held the gun and I honestly didn't notice until I looked at it. It's probably the one thing I'd improve about this product.
Full disclaimer - I've never used a carpentry nail gun before, but I have no reason to try something else after using this.
This order was shipped fast and came in about 3 or 4 days, and was ready to use out of the box, after adding a drop or two of the oil that came with the NuMaxPneumatic 18-Gauge Brad Nailer SBR50. This nail gun works great I've been using this gun everyday since I received it and with no problems, its very easy to use, nails great, handles nice and gets the job done as in nailing plywoods, hardwoods, pine, I have nailed, so far, woods from 1/4 inch to 1 1/2 inch. Very good in everything from ordering to the use of this nail gun. Five Stars! I highly recommend this tool to my friends and co-workers.
I have a Porter-Cable 16ga finish nailer. I needed an 18ga brad nailer to add trim all around my screened-in porch. This functioned just as well as my much more expensive Porter-Cable for far less money. The wide variety of nail lengths is a huge plus. Put nails in it an nail away.
Ordered this nailer specifically because I planned to make about 3 dozen small picture frames to display 45's picture sleeves. Although it was designed to accept various nail lengths, I only needed to use 5/8" brads. I didn't want to spend a lot of money for what I knew would be limited use. Unfortunately, it jammed after firing about 8-10 nails. Spoke to someone with NuMax Pneumatic. He was very nice and helpful. However, during the time of "hold on I'm trying to disassemble/re-assemble the nailer" and "why don't you just call back in ten minutes" the nailer jammed two more times. Both times after firing about 8- 10 nails. I told the rep what the brand of nails I used. I presume it was ok because he didn't recommend I try another brand. I'm disappointed because this nailer was a really nice unit when it worked. Would have been perfect to complete the job.
Pros: Easy to Use, All In One, Accurate, Good Size & Weight, Light Weight
I bought this brad nailer to do the shoe molding in my daughter's house. She had wood floors installed in the entire house and to save some money I did the shoe molding. Knowing that this was going to be a small job so I bought a cheap nailer, well so I thought. Turns out that this nailer was an excellent buy and worked perfectly for me through out the entire job. I recommend it for any handy man and even the professional.
1st time to own a Brad Nailer. This up to 2" nailer is lightweight, strong and the all around nailer to use for the home owner. Ease of use is so good I will never use finished nails again. Home Depot made it easy and fast with free shipping.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Accurate, Light Weight
