Can i use this tool in 16d doublehad ? Can i use this tool in 6d? Can be attached an extension to work like pichura ?

Answer

It will drive until it finds no resistance where it thinks it's done. I see no reason it can't be used with double head nails, but with no auto sensor to detect it, you would need to physically watch and see how far it is going in, otherwise it could drive it all the way in, or if the bottom head hits enough resistance, the upper portion could bend, defeating the purpose. I've set 8d nails with no problem, have driven the galvanized structural nails for joist hangers, no problem. 6d sinkers may work, but anything smaller would resemble using a sledge hammer, so you'd need a whole lot of practice and finesse. Doubt anyone would ever be able to control this on nails with finish heads. Also, keep in mind, this is not intended for finish work, it will dimple the wood if it drives to it's end of travel.

Can it handle toenailing for framing work if needed?

Yes - you can toe nail with it . I use mine for hard to reach areas & joist hangers most of the time but you could toe nail with it . If you haven't used a palm nailer it will take some practice to become efficient at toe nailing with it .

are 6 penny or 8 penny nails to small to drive I'm working with some hardwood will they bend?

Asked by Paul November 22, 2020

They shouldnt be too small for the tool but i definitely wouldn’t use them on hardwood. I would Pre-drill and use finish screws.

Great size for small spaces
Great quality tool that came in handy several times when building a house. I usually use 18volt tools but couldn't tell this was a 12 volt tool. Lightweight and small enough to fit in small spaces that we couldn't get nailers or hammers in. Very strong and efficient. Of course, with any power tool you should always have at least 2 batteries to rotate but I like that it has a battery gauge to prevent surprises.

It's super convenient when you need to get in those tight spaces and you don't have to drag around an air hose! seems to have plenty of power for all size nails and battery life will let you pound many nails before a recharge!

I bought this about 8 months ago and it's a great tool when you need to get a nail in a spot that a hammer nor a nail gun can fit. It has saved my butt several times! One time the inspector asked for hurricane nailing straps between the 1st & second story AFTER the framing inspection was passed and during the plumbing inspection weeks later. There was already a boxed in chase in the way as well as pipes. This was the only tool that could do the job as there was no room for a hammer or even a palm air nailer with its hose. This tool got the job done! I thought I was going to have to take all the drain lines out! Other times I've used it to put up 3/4"-1 1/2 hangers for PEX plumbing and large 100 amp 2 ga electrical wires when running an electrical sub panel thru old work. Nailing hangers between 12" OC floor joists is a snap with this nailer especially in old work where the wood is rock hard! Overall great tool and life saver!
