Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Reading the instruction booklet, which is very clear, is essential. Although I consider myself a handyman with lots of tools, this is my first nail gun, and it took a few minutes of working out to make clear how it works.

The gun comes in a good plastic case. Useful, as appears to be a tool I won't use frequently, but when I need it it will be very helpful to have.

The nails arrive as strips rather like staples - stuck together by an almost invisible layer of glue. They have a minimal head - by their very nature, the heads can't overlap, and the heads protrude slightly sideways only. This means the tool is unsuitable for thin, soft wood, where having a decent head is vital. On the other hand, the nails become almost invisible. Where you would use panel pins, this is perfect. I purchased the "180 Nail Selection Pack" which has 2000 short nails (15mm), 1000 medium nails (25mm) and 1000 slightly longer nails (30mm). That's a lot of nails for little cost!

There's a lever at the back for sliding out the drawer, put the nail strip in and close the drawer. Closing the drawer took more force than I expected, hence had to read the instructions again to check.

You then plug it into the mains (or an extension lead), switch it on at the back, put the gun against wood and pull the trigger. The first attempt had the nail protruding by about 2mm (an old piece of 2x2, fairly tough wood). Another attempt with the other hand on the gun's body (the back of the head, so to speak) gave slightly better penetration. Then I removed the tiny piece of rubber on the gun's nozzle. Tried again, and it fired perfectly, about 1mm into the wood.

That little piece of rubber (or soft plastic) is intended for soft woods, to prevent the nail penetrating too far.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This nail gun comes in it's own plastic carry case - very handy to store when not in use, and it also has space for spare nails (box of which is supplied).

It's pretty easy to use, although I did have to look at the manual to work out how to actually put the nails (they are a strip rather an loose) in the cartridge (which turned out to be obvious). It's light enough to be used for a period of time, and the cartridge holds a good supply of nails. It takes up to 35mm nails, so it's good for most around the home DIY jobs.

I used to put down a laminate floor and beading and it was ideal - it actually made the job quicker as rather than wasting a few seconds at a time in banging nails in with a hammer, you literally just line up the gun and fire. As simple as that. There were a couple of times that the nail didn't going all the way into the wood, but easily removed and redone. There is a rubber tip on the gun that can be removed and this allows the nails to go deeper, but I preferred to keep this on as it protected the wood from damage.

The cord length is a little on the small side for doing a larger area, but easily plugged into an extension.

As well as the on off switch on the bottom, the other safety feature is that you need to press the point of the gun into a surface - this prevents the gun just firing nails into the air.

It's good value, and it does the main job without any issues - it's going to be getting regular use on all kinds of DIY jobs.

Highly recommended.

This tool comes in at the lower end of the nailer products on the market but it still handles brad nails up to 35mm long making it suitable for a wide range of jobs both for tradesmen and jobs around the home and garden.
I'm using it with the 180 selection pack of brad nails which gives a nice range of sizes and there's no need to be ordering a lot of nails in odd sizes which will never get used. Really good too, easy to understand, load and use. There is a small kick when you fire the tool and best to counteract that by using your second hand as explained by others

I am extremely pleased with this tool.

Given the right pressure on the nails exit point (without the rubber nose), this nail gun is so powerful that the nails' heads can even sink below the surface of the nailed material and thus making them nearly invisible. In comparison, many if not most of other electrical nail guns don't have that special crisp punch and usually require some supplementary hammering, hence my apprehension before ordering as I had great difficulties using a hammer for a certain work I was doing at home.

As to it's other qualities, I honestly see no exaggeration at all in the official description, so there's no need to repeat what has already been clearly explained.

Along with the nail gun, I ordered 'TACWISE 180 NAIL ASSORTMENT PACK (4000)' and with that I have no less than one 100% satisfaction.

.. Thanks to the positive commentators.

Read all previous reviews for this item. So far this nail gun has done what I bought it for. It takes some time to get used to,so did some small practice pieces first. Completed an under stair cupboard project with this gun. If you want to do more robust work, as gas or air powered gun might be needed ,but then you have the additional cost involved. I have rated this as 5 star because it is a good value item.
