Product Overview

The Powernail PowerPalm is an essential flooring installation tool for both the Pro and DIYer. The PowerPalm is a pressure actuated pneumatic palm nailer for driving flooring cleats. This revolutionary tool allows you to blind nail starting rows, final rows and in tight spaces with both 18 gauge and 16 gauge L-style and T-style cleats. It is designed to aid in the fastening of a wide range of today’s tongue-and-groove flooring. Top nailing final rows used to be an inevitability. As the installer worked closer to the wall they would eventually run out of space for their nailer, yet more rows were needed to complete the floor. This is where Top Nailing came into play. Top nailing is the method of fastening the floor plank into the subfloor from its top surface. This method either left unsightly nail heads on the walking surface of the floor, or the installer would countersink and fill the holes. Either method left the floor with unflattering blemishes. The PowerPalm by Powernail virtually eliminates top nailing, while maintaining the integrity and aesthetic of your installation.The PowerPalm incorporates a minimally sized profile and specially engineered tip to fit into tight places and drive cleats into the nail pocket

The manual says only use Powernail Powercleats but they have to be ordered. Can you use other cleats like Bostitch? They can be found on the shelf locally.
Asked by: SneakyPete
Hey there SneakyPete (couldn't resist using that name. Please forgive me.) Our PowerPalm cleat nailer will drive any 16-18 gauge "L" or "T" style flooring cleat on the market. You will not have any problems with the Bostitch cleats.

Is predrilling needed for stranded bamboo flooring?

I'm installing solid, 9/16 stranded bamboo flooring over a native red oak subfloor. Will it be necessary to drill pilot holes when using 18ga nails?
Asked by: DIYDave
I have used this cleat nailer before, its a great tool and time saver. But from experience when blind nailing or nailing through the tongue portion on stranded or stranded fossilized bamboo you will need a small guide hole. Or the cleat may bend because of the hardness of the wood. 18ga nails are the correct ones to use for this type of bamboo flooring your doing. For regular in the field nailing of the floor (aka not areas like first couple of rows, or last couple rows or areas a limited space for a regular flooring gun) use a regular 18ga flooring nail gun and no predrilling necessary. Also you'll want a strong 18ga nail, preferably one from the US. I've tried many from Mexico, China and Canada and most end up bending with either this tool or an 18ga floor nailer, need to look for nails made from strong steel.

PowerPalm Pneumatic Hardwood Flooring Cleat Nailer is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Valuable tool Almost returned power palm. The very first attempt worked! But the next 10 attempts failed. I was trying to force the tool to work but kept bending the cleats. So I decided to put in a 20 minute test the following day. Just by taking my time and putting minimal pressure on the cleat, the power palm began working most of the time. Now I'd say I have a 97% success rate! Works get in tight areas. I also found that using 1 1/2 inch L Cleats word best. Just take your time and make sure you wear eye protection.

We used the PowerPalm cleat nailer to start placing our hardwood floor along the wall where we couldn't use the regular floor nailer. It was very easy to use and it was much easier than drilling and hand nailing the 1st few rows. Would definitely recommend this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Power palm cleat nailer If you are installing hardwood flooring this can be a great investment. Just did 1600 sf of oak 3/4" prefinished flooring with a lot of confined areas hallways ,closets and nooks.it was a life saver. A lot of people complained of bending the cleats It can and will happen just pre drill a pilot hole. With that said I found I could drive a lot without drilling it was dependant on the piece of material hardness and if there was something like a subfloor screw underneath. Just remember unlike a flooring nailer you have support of shank while it is being driven This you don't. For the money since this is a glorified palm nailer it is overpriced concidering what it does, they should supply a kit bag or a blow mold case for it.

Most complaints that I saw were with the bending of nails. I personally bent about 5 nails out of 100 (including practice nails). There is a little bit of a learning curve with the tool. You have to let the nailer do the work and simply guide the tool with the nail. If you force it, you will bend the nail. Even if you bend the nail, no problem. Just wiggle it back and forth and it will break off flush with the wood. Then install another right next to the broken nail. I recommend this nailer 100%.

It saves an incredible amount of time fastening the first and last few rows of hardwood flooring. Just break apart the L cleats, as it only uses one at a time. I did have to pre-drill holes in Hard Maple 3/4 flooring in order for it penetrate fully but with Oak or any normal hardness flooring that won't not be necessary. You will be surprised at how little/compact this tool is and the angle can be rotated to get to any tight areas. Happy with my purchase!
