Narrow Nose 18 ga Nailer - Innovative!

Review Summary

What a great innovation! The Smart Point is a brilliant idea. Basically, it is a very narrow tip that allows this tool, primarily intended to install moldings do it's job better by allowing the tip to get down in the hollows and crevices of the molding. This allows you to drive the nails flush and hide them better. All the other 18 ga nailers I've used always had a broad tip, which if you nailed in a hollow, would not drive the nail flush into the wood.
(Break out the center punch and hammer to set it. Ugh, what a waste of time). This tool also drives long 18 ga nails, up to 2 1/8 inches, It also has a tool free jam release mechanism, which I have yet to have to use. It also is switchable between sequential or contact operation, although personally, I can't imagine using the contact operation mode while installing fine finish molding? But for rougher work it's there. 6 months after purchasing, I'm totally pleased with it, and highly recommend it.
