Customer Questions & Answers

Can I purchase case for this nailer

Asked by: Ellsie
Per Porter Cable customer service, a plastic case is not available for purchase separate from the 3-1/2" FC350B framing gun. They indicated a Porter Cable contractor bag can be purchased separately for framing gun storage.

Can this nailer be used to attach cedar clapboard siding?

What is the best nailer for attaching cedar clapboard siding? Will this nailer work?
Asked by: Gary
If you do a little research you would find many contractors on many different sites state a framing nailer is not recommended for installation of this type of siding. A siding nailer or roofing nailer will be a better gun to hang siding for better finish among other reasons. Hope this helps.

How do I know if the compressor I have is big or strong enough to use with this nailer?

I have a Husky portable that gives enough psi to run it but I get the feeling there are some other specs I should be looking at as well.
Asked by: Raymo
If you have the right psi, check it's scfm output. It's usually provided at 90psi & at 40psi. This fn250c is/was sold in a combo kit with the Porter Cable C2002 compressor. It's scfm specs are 2.6 @ 90 psi & 3.7 @ 40 psi, 0.8hp. The nailer works perfectly at 90 psi for most applications single shot, higher depending on length of nail and/or density of wood, or bigger compressor needed if looking to use rapid fire option. I own both, have used gun with other compressors & it's a great gun. Nothing in owners manual specifically about minimum scfm or cfm requirements. Hope this helps.

Customer Reviews

3-1/2 in. 30 Degree to 34 Degree Clipped-Head Framing Nailer is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 48.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pro grade industry standard quality After a lot of research i bought this item. First i purchased the 21* model FR350B and returned it for the FC350B. FR is for Round head and FC is for Clipped head nails. However the FC350B uses both round or clipped in the paper collated form. This makes your gun compatible with many on the market and out in use in the field today. Helpful when buying and sharing nails with other friends/contractors. After researching the paper collated nails; they are said to be safer as the paper gets desintigrated in the worked product. Whereas the plastic on the 21* FR nails get lodged in the mechanism or ejected. Even with goggles or protective eye wear you don't want to have to think about cast off while working...either for the user or others and you certainly don't want to spend time unjaming your gun. The FC is 30* angle which sets the nail cartridge closer to the handle providing more compact space to fire in close spaces. You'll appreciate it when its needed, but seems second nature while working with it. Both models come with a case, rafter/belt hook, two cushion heads, and adjustable exhaust. Great accessories for the price that many other manufactures lack. Get the industrial fittings for your compressor hook up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great nail gun I had been looking for an excuse to buy a framing nailer for some time and finally justified it for doing some fairly extensive fence repairs after trying the old hammer and nail method in prior years. This nail gun is easy to use and a real time-saver. Can't wait for the next project...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great Replaced my deck with this porter cable 3 1/2 clipped head framing nailer and a ryobi 6 gal pancake compressor. The gun never jammed. Drove the nails completely, and never misfired. Couldn't be happier with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pro Grade Nail Gun @ Killer Price I have a large assortment of Porter Cable air nailers including the FR350A but when I was out shopping on Black Friday, I could not believe that they were practically giving away this gun for a buck-29. I couldn't get this thing in the basket quick enough and I've been using it every day since. To compare the two guns, the FR350A is a workhorse but this gun can run circles around it on every level. The FR is a round head only using plastic collated 22 deg nails and weighs ~15 pounds. The FC will take both round or clipped head paper collated in the 30-34 deg range, weighs ~7.5 pounds and has has been redesigned to drive 3.5" nails in engineered lumber. The gun comes equiped with Tool-lessTrigger Selection, Tool-less Depth Adjustment, Framers Hook, Low-Nail Lockout, Case, Oil, Allen Wrench, & Manual. As of today, you can still get this gun at this incredible price but you will have to do some looking as most stores sold out quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great nail gun for the DIY homeowner Having owned this Porter Cable nailer now for just over 1.5yrs, can say without a doubt I made the right decision in my purchase. Looked at many guns in this category, different vendors, 21° vs. 34°, plastic strip collated vs. paper tape nails, etc. This light-weight gun never misfires, this gun uses paper-tape collated nails & those are less expensive then the plastic collated nails the 21° nail guns use, so no plastic debris from discharging nails flying all over the place & needing to be cleaned up. This FC350B shoots both clipped-head & full-head paper-tape collated nails, a great bonus. Haven't shot anything larger then 3-1/4" nails, but it sank all the way into the wood material with ease, make sure you add a drop or two of air tool oil when using it. I added this gun to my Porter Cable collection of pneumatic guns, only missing the 15-gauge DA gun. By far thoroughly satisfied with PC guns, ease of use, ease of cleaning as the firing areas are easily accessible to clean. The nail guns & staplers take multiple varieties of nail manufacturers, Paslode being my nail of choice if HD is out of Porter Cable nails/brads/staples. You won't go wrong with the purchase of this nailer, or any Porter Cable nailer. The gun also comes with a nice heavy-duty plastic molded carry case & small bottle of air tool oil, descriptive owners manual & an extra bump stop for the gun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Nailer Works Great. Ready to throw away my hammers now. Easy to use and very powerful. Split my board the first test, but quickly adjusted it to the correct driving depth. Accepted full head and clipped nails. Have driven over 300 nails without a misfire or problem. Was able to build a new staircase to the basement in one day. A little heavy by the end of the day, but still easier than swinging the hammer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from No carrying case I just received the nail gun and there is no case. Why does Home Depot show the nailer with a case if it doesn't come with one? There isn't even a bag!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Had to Buy Borrowed one from a friend. Ease of use made me want one. Saw it on sale for $129.00 and had to get one. SCORE!!! Depth adjustment easy to use.
