Among the many pinners on the market, these stand out. They are not just built to last but are thoughtfully designed with features that make the tool more comfortable and convenient to use.
The 23 gauge pinners are good choices for trim work or assembling projects not subject to significant loading. Just 0.025" in diameter, the headless pins leave an inconspicuous hole that can simply be painted over or filled with sanding dust to color-match surrounding wood. The tiny fastener also displaces little material, so it can be driven close to an edge with minimal risk of splitting.
The easy-to-fill side-loading magazines have a long window, so you can see at a glance when it's time to reload, while their stepped profile lets you tilt the tool for better access into corners. The swivelling hose coupling minimizes tangles, and a rear-mounted vent directs the exhaust away from the user. To prevent marring delicate or contoured surfaces, each pinner has a replaceable soft tip.
A belt hook lets you carry the tool hands-free on either side of the body, helpful when working on a ladder. With a durable all-metal construction, each pinner has a cast aluminum housing, an extruded magazine, and precisely machined pistons and valves. Tight manufacturing tolerances ensure smooth, jam-free operation and minimize wear.
The basic P635 pinner drives headless pins from 3/8" to 1 3/8" long. The more powerful P650LXE model drives pins up to 2" long, sufficient to secure thick molding through drywall and into the underlying stud. Its trigger automatically disengages when there are just a few fasteners left, eliminating dry-firing so you don't make dents in your work or cause needless wear to the tool.
You can also override this mechanism if you want to use the remaining pins to tack your work in place – something you'll appreciate when you're up a ladder. Both tools operate at 70 to 100 psi and can be used with settings of up to 130 psi for dense materials.
Each comes in a fitted plastic carry case. Professional-grade tools backed by a 1-year warranty.
