Rated 5 out of 5Â by John I like it!
After reading the other reviews, I was skeptical, but I've used the other nailers (Bostich, Porter Cable, etc), and I could always get my money back, and buy a more expensive rig if this one failed... This thing isn't bad - I was able to operate it with less than 75 PSI on my compressor (as it was coming up to operating pressure) and it DROVE the nails in. There is an adjustment for the depth of the drive - it says how to adjust it right in the manual. It will acually counter-sink them - I played with the adjustment to get it just right.
I've got a big compressor, but that really shouldn't make a difference - with a smaller compressor, it will just cycle more.
This is my third Husky air tool purchase, and I haven't been disappointed yet. For the price ($99 when I bought it) you just can't beat it. The palm nailer is just a bonus. The two triggers that you get are nice, too. The only problem I've got is the nails - I had a case of wire welded and these take the plastic collated ones. Oh, well.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by FireDog The 2-Piece Framing and Palm Nailer Combo Kit is good for the home handyman projects.
Although the depth setting of the nailer is touchy, if you use the palm nailer along with it your projects can get done in half the time it would take to hand nail. Great value for the price!

Works great. Have been looking for a nailer for a while and this one fit the budget. I was able to make the depth adjustments and it drives the nails flush. I'm very happy with my purchase.

This was my first air nailer purchase. I was skeptical of a nailer 1/3 the cost of big name brands that contractors use. I used Grip Rite 3" x .120 nails and my tiny 2 gal. 100 lb. compressor. The nailer worked great and got me through a huge utility shelving project using 2 x 4's and 5/8" plywood. All nails were driven flush using about 95 lbs. pressure. I had only one nail jam to clear and I found that was due to a nail in the strip not lined up at the factory properly when the plastic strip was made. If you're new to nail guns like me, read the instructions and learn how to set the depth gauge. My little 2 gal. compressor shot about 8 nails before cycling back on... no big deal unless you're in a big hurry.
I hooked up the palm nailer that came with the kit to try out. Practicing on scrap 2 x 4's with some single 3" nails showed me that this is a handy little item. After getting the feel for how it drives the nails, I was able to drive nails into the 2 x 4's down to flush with no problems. There is a little magnet inside the nailer that holds a nail while you position the nailer and that is very handy.
I had no problems with the big nail gun or the palm nailers operation. I do believe that reading the instruction book first helped me understand the depth gauge and how the nailers work, so other first time nailer users should probably spend a little time reading the book before using.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Kenny Works Much Better Than The Price
Using 2 3/8 nails at 110 psi the first nail drove too deep. Adjusted the depth adjuster twice and it was perfect. I dropped the pressure down to 100 psi so I wouldn't have to change pressure when switching to my Brad Nailer or the Palm Nailer and with one change of the depth adjuster it again was perfect. The only problem I have found is once you get down to just a few nails in the Mag you have to re-load to shoot. The Palm Nailer worked excellent. Drove a 16 Penny nail though two 2 x 4's in about 5 seconds. The Framing nailer is worth way more than The price I paid all by it's self and the Palm Nailer is just a freebe. (With the Veterans Discount the whole thing was only $89.90. WoW!)
