Well, today I have finally joined the club. I have always been anti air nailer, not so much anti but as I never seen the need, but last summer when I was helping my friend finish the upstairs in 2 story garage using an air framing nailer, and an air finish nailer I was sold. So easy, and SO MUCH FASTER! And best of all no more smashed thumbs!
I am embarking on my latest project and I was thinking about picking a set up. My wife told me to go a hold, when your wife tells you to go buy a new tool you go do it!
So I browsed home depot for about 20 minutes looking at their wall of shiny new air nailers. Prices ranged from 100 to 400 for these bad boys. I didn't have experience with most of the brands. My friend had rigid, and they worked great, the price was up around 290 for just one nailer. I finally laid eyes on the bright yellow dewalt brand. 179 for the framing(on sale from 249) and 189 for the 15 gauge finish nailer. I was sold. Price was middle of the road and I like dewalt stuff.
My pocket book a little lighter after the nailers, nails, and a bag of new goodies, I ran out of there before I spent anymore.
