    A good deal of pin work in this bathroom vanity set that I finished today. All with the PC.

    Innovations are those useful things that, by dint of chance, manage to survive the stupidity and destructive tendencies inherent in human nature.

    Thanks Ian.
    Further research shows that Paslode brought in a couple of the Maestri Nailers which they sold under their banner but not the pin nailer. They no longer bring in a maestri products.

    Default 23 guage Freeman pinner

    This Freeman 23 pneumatic pinner is the bees knees: https://www.amazon.com/Freeman-PP123...dp/B002EVPO7W/

    I bought it years ago (sept '14) because it was cheap and just for one job (as all things TEND to be.... but its now part of my go-to tool selection) and it turned out to be an absolutely fantastic tool. Ive put about 5000 pins through it, in 1/4, 1/2 and 1 inch, and I cannot recall a single misfire or jam. A bit of machine oil at the end of the session in the air input and its servicing is done.

    Parts for servicing are available from Freeman in Sydney (rings, pin, etc), but I've not needed them.

    HIGHLY recommend it. I would unhesitatingly buy another... just as a spare.

    These pins are also excellent: https://www.amazon.com/BOSTITCH-PT-2...dp/B000EM91FY/ and https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000FW43FQ

    BTW, Im not advocating Amazon, just using it for the info.

    There is also this, which Ive owned for a few months and done 3 good-sized jobs with: https://www.amazon.com.au/gp/product/B006ARJX0A the Arrow staples are from Bunnings (was a much better price for those at the time!!!???). This stapler has performed just as well and feel confident in recommending it.

    I'd say go for a cordless brad nailer, if you get a good one, you will be so happy. Builders have been using cordless nail guns for a while, and the feedback I heard have been positive. Hitachi is the best, but you'll have to pay for it... cry once.....that sort of things.

    When you do buy a compressor, you'll wonder how you managed without a compressor! 😀
    Yes, you do end up buying more air tools, but you soon realise how USEFUL they are. 👌👌👍
    An air driven pin nailer is the way to go.
    ...although a new shed and a new (good) compressor makes the pin nailer a bit pricey 😂

    thanks.

    I really need as thin a pin as possible so Iím looking at a pin nailer (23 gauge). Itís to do with the fragility of the timbers I am going to fasten. The beauty of pneumatic I believe, is that once you buy a compressor, you can buy other nailers at a much lower price that battery ones.

    However I canít see myself, in the foreseeable future, needing anything other than a pin nailer.

    A brad nailer and a pin nailer are not the same thing.

    Thanks. My problem is housing a compressor plus this clock restoration is exy enough as it is without adding another shed.
    I know a compressor would be great but Iíll get a price on the unit Ian found (itís not cheap) and do a cost comparison between it and a compressor and a pneumatic pin nailer

    Hi Lappa,

    The Maestri unit is also sold in the UK under the Spotnails name. Quite a few online sellers ans as usual quite a range of prices.

    My bad, still I think Hitachi makes the best nailer, like this one. I think it will all depend on how you use it. If you are always going to use it in a workshop with air supply, then an air gun is excellent and cheap. But I find cordless is more versatile when you can carry it to just about anywhere.

    Hmmmm. I wouldn't mind having a "cordless" one.... The video looks good. I do find the airline a bit of a PITA.

    Though, the reviews on Amazon aren't too glowing.

    Wonder if Makita makes one

    Makita was the first one I looked at - $439 for the skin - DPT353Z
