WOOD magazine review

Craftsman 18172 Brad Nailer

Review Summary

High points: We found it difficult to jam fasteners in this model, even at low air pressure in steel. Oil-free design eliminates regular maintenance. Comes with an assortment of brads ranging in length from 5/8" to 2". Low points: Jammed fasteners, though rare, must be removed through the magazine. Low/empty-magazine indicator is difficult to read. Rear exhaust can blast operator in the face when the tool is used overhead.
More points: Switch allows user to select from sequential-fire mode or contact-fire mode.
