I own this exact air compressor and brad nailer. I bought it as a kit too, but paid a good bit more!
Amazon.com has these on sale for a great price and it ships right to you.
I often buy tools on Amazon because of the great pricing, and the really great service. No problems with returns, quick shipping, etc.
Why Do I Need A Brad Nailer?
I own a whole big giant plastic container full of nail guns, at least one of every type. The only one(s) that live outside that container, usually on my work-bench or in the house next to whatever I’m working on is the brad nailer. I use them very frequently.
For example, say you’re following the series on interior wood paneling and you decide you want to install some beadboard, or some board-and-batten. This is one of the key tools. For any trimwork or detail jobs, this is the tool. It shoots nails down to 1/2″ and up to about 2″ in length. But it leaves a tiny hole.
My 12 year old son made a table with some scraps and my brad nailer in about twenty minutes yesterday!
Why This One?
The nail gun itself isn’t anything out of the ordinary. Brad nailers are all very similar, though Senco is great quality. But the real advantage to this is the air compressor!
- You can carry it in one hand by the built-in handle… it’s not heavy at all.
- It fits on a shelf, or even in a plastic bin. It takes up about as much space as a five-gallon bucket.
- It has little rubber feet so you can set it on any surface to run it… hardwood floors, whatever.
- It is very quiet.
Only downside is that this is a small compressor, meaning you can’t run just any air tool with it. It’s made to be a team with the brad nailer.
Get One, You’ll Love it!
If you buy one, please buy it from Amazon.com because I’m an affiliate… meaning when you click through from my blog to Amazon and buy something, I get a small commission. It added up to a whopping $6.00 last month, but maybe that’s because I forgot to point out great deals like this one. Thanks!
