Does this 1-3/8 in.pin nailer have a safety on it so it will not fire unless the nose is in contact with material

Asked by: woodworker7
it does have a safety, however it is controlled by your hand and not by pressure to the material as most 18 gauge and up nail guns do.

First nail gun

Hi-so I am looking to purchase my first nail gun for household projects like board and batten and replacing baseboards. Would this gun handle those jobs? If not could you kindly offer suggestions? Thanks.
Asked by: Cece
The 23 gauge nailer would not be a good choice. I would suggest a brad nailer or a finish nailer, 15 or 165 gauge.

23-Gauge 1-3/8 in. Pin Nailer is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 79.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Porter-Cable Pin Nailer was for my husband to use in a project to update our kitchen cabinet... This Porter-Cable Pin Nailer was for my husband to use in a project to update our kitchen cabinets. It was perfect for him to add trim pieces to cover up flaws, particularly on the bottom edges of the cabinets. It worked fine with his air compressor. The little pins hold the trim perfectly and look great, and the project went so much faster and prettier than if he had tried using finishing nails. He is very pleased with this tool, and using it to update our cabinets has saved us a lot of money and time. Well worth the cost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Porter-Cable-23-Gauge Pin-Nailer I had cabinets installed in my house recently and the installer attached the base boards and Mouldings with a pinhole nailer. I bought this pinhole nailer to put up my trim work and it works well . The pinholes are easy to fill, if you feel the need and and strong for the 1 3/4 inch nail. I will definitely be using this nailer over my 2 larger nailers !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little pin nailer! Used this to nail quarter round to cabinets where a brad nailer would be too much. This little nailer is smooth, creates small holes, and is very consistant. My smaller compressor was more than enough for this to drive the pins home. Its basic and easy to use. Get it, you will be happy.

Need 100psi for longer pins 1 1/4. It's great that is oilless. Can not rate durability seeing I only own it for about 2 weeks. Have other Porter Cable products that have served me well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Pin Nailer Nailer works very good. I purchased the longer pin nails for this and they hold chair rail surprisingly well. Safety latch takes a bit to get used to but works fine after getting the feel of it.
