Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Freeman Brad Nailer PBR50 As several reviews state - it is reasonable value; it is a nice feel in the hand and light weight however, my experience with this brad nailer is not good. The 2 most important issues: 1. - nail jamming - consistently. 2.- No adjustment for brad depth and brads are permanently proud by an 1/8", which is hopeless. I've tried oiling the tool, I've made all air pressure adjustments up to 100psi and I've tried using shorter brads without success. For me this tool is hopeless. The instruction booklet doesn't really give any helpful advice either. Freeman says that every tool is tested before shipping out but I find this hard to believe. December 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by No Filler needed! This Freeman 18 gauge Brad Nailer is just what I needed. I recently put down baseboard and shoe molding and the holes from the nail heads were barley noticeable. I couldn't find most of them to fill. The fit was tight and no need for my 2" trim nailer , which I have to fill way bigger holes. December 5, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good value This pneumatic nailer is fairly easy to use, lightweight but sturdy enough. No problems hooking it up to my compressor or loading brads. I’ve had the opportunity to use it on a couple projects (cabinet molding and building a bench) and it performed admirably. It is easily maneuvered in fairly tight spaces once you get the “feel” for it. As such, I would recommend practicing on some scrap wood to get that feel for the trigger pull before you begin using. The trickiest part of operation is finding the right pressure. Because this nailer does not feature a depth adjustment, there is some amount of trial and error needed to get the right depth for the particular wood you are working with – a problem of course if you do not have some scrap to practice on. The instructions make recommendations for pressure but I did find they required tweaking. Luckily I learned this lesson the first time on an inconspicuous area. For occasional brad nailing this is probably a great solution as the nailer gets the job done at a great price. For someone who plans on using a brad nailer often on a lot of different projects (different wood types) it might be worth investing in a nailer with more features. December 23, 2013
