Wise Buys: Nailer/Compressor Combination Kits
INCLUDES: 6-gallon compressor; 16-gauge 1-2-1/2" finish nailer; 18-gauge 5/8-1-3/8" brad nailer; 18-gauge 1/2-1-1/4" narrow-crown stapler; 1/4"x40' hose; canvas bag; and fasteners.
The nailers in this kit surprised me because they're more robust than my older nailers. The lightweight magnesium bodies held up well under fire. The finish nailer and stapler sport quick-releases for clearing jams, and on the bradder and stapler, a red flag appears in a small window to indicate low fasteners. Although none will bump-fire, you can get an optional trigger to do so with the finish nailer. The 28-lb, oil-free compressor proved easy to carry, but tended to scoot when refilling, and its test-high 91 dB equals the noise of a router.
