After watching some YouTube vids on deck building did I learn about the mini palm nailer. Faced with building my first deck I tried to learn as much as I could about tools and techniques. I had some worries over having to hammer in nails in tight quarters. When I saw this I had to get one. Of all that's out there this one brand stood out as the mid range price offering and had great reviews. I can't imagine not having this tool! What a fast and easy way to attach 3.5 inch nails with rapid ease! And no bent nails either. I highly recommend this RIGID palm nailer to anyone who builds decks or framing. What a great little tool!! Easy to maintain and use. JUST MAKE SURE you load the nail with the pneumatic hammer shaft facing away from you and never palm hold the nail as you load it. Load it like holding a cigarette, two/three fingers. The unit starts hammering as soon as you exert slight pressure on the nail inside the hammer shaft. Just follow common sense and safety guidelines in the booklet. You will love this tool.

This is a good palm held nail driver. It is made nicely and the cost is a plus. I used this to put up pickets on a fence. The palm nailer was ready to use right out the box. It does come with lube as well. It does have several different settings for how far you want the nail to be driven. Once you determine the setting you want to use and air pressure, this makes driving nails so much easier and saves time significantly. Occasionally some nails turned, but I had a hammer handy and pulled them out and kept going with the palm nailer. I was very impressed with this palm nailer and definitely see myself using it in the future for DIY jobs.

I loooove this tool, it made constructing a deck much simpler. The sound is fun, it's light and super easy to use! Driving nails is simple in awkward places a regular hammer won't cut it.

OK tool, LSA is terrible!
I have an earlier version of this tool. For light construction it isn't bad. This issue is the LSA-Lifetime Service Agreement. I had to have some repairs done a few years ago, the authorized service center is quite a distance from my home, and they had it for over 2 months. Now, several small parts have loosened up and fallen out on a jobsite. I asked my local Home Depot associate if they could order the parts or help me out, and was told I had to file a claim or go to the RIGID site to order the parts. So now, here I am, making the repairs myself. The very small parts that will fit in my hand, nuts/bolts/washers/springs, totaled $25. But, RIGID is charging $13.95 for shipping, which is asinine. Ultimately, it will cost less to pay for the parts and get them quickly, as opposed to spending 2 plus hours of my time travelling to/from the repair center plus lost time from paying jobs and the cost of either buying a replacement, or renting a replacement. I have learned that the LSA is meaningless unless you live close to a service center, or have extreme patience. What's more, you can ask different Home Depot associates about the LSA, and you will get different answers. I have been told that the Home Depot store will ship the tool to be repaired, I have been told the HD tool rental center does all the repairs, and I have been told the only way to use the LSA is to file a claim. Obviously a training problem exists. My advice, don't by a RIGID tool simply for the LSA.

    Dont forget to register within 90 days or else you will have a paper weight.
    My RIGID Palm Nailer R350PNF worked good until it broke. If you forget to register within 90 days you get to pay an exorbitant price for their repair parts. The cheap $1 broken stem in the picture now cost $25.31. Having a cascade effect the cheap broken stem then destroyed the $51.51 Cylinder. Considering a new Palm Nailer cost $59.98 it now becomes a paper weight.

      Everything is pretty good about the gun, but you have to have max air all the time. Very inconsistent depths of the nails when the pressure just falls off a little. Requires a good compressor. One thing that I don't like is the style of nails required. The plastic, that holds the nails together, will get caught between the nail head and the wood.

        I have used a few other brands from cheap to expensive but never had one of my own. When I decided to build a cabin I needed one and just happen to see this on sale for $169 so yeah I got one. From the floor to the walls and on to the roof framing and sheathing as well as siding, this gun has done it all for me. The only time I had a jam was when hitting a knot, other that that this thing has worked flawlessly. I have no complaints at all!

          Few instructions came with the palm nailer and they were not very helpful. Fortunately, I had watched an online video before I made my purchase and had some idea of how it might be used. I was able to figure it out, but it did not seem to work well until I raised the air pressure to over 100 psi. Then it drove a 3-1/2 inch twisted nail into pressure treated wood quite easily. I was pleased to find that there was almost no vibration in my hand, the tool was easy to manipulate, and the nail could be placed accurately. It is also convenient to be able to use an appropriate nail for the job--in this case galvanized--and still be able to drive a large number of nails quickly and accurately. I had trouble getting the nail head to end up flush until I figured out that this is adjustable by twisting a black dial just above the driver. With the proper setting, I was able to drive the nails flush consistently. I was building the base for a small shed and after making a quick job of the frame for the floor, tried to use this tool to nail down the plywood floor. I used 1-1/2" ring shank nails, but these had a tendency to bend while being driven, perhaps because the head is relatively small. I got frustrated and just drove them in with a hammer instead. So maybe this is not a good tool for every nailing application, but it is small, versatile and affordable and I am very happy to carry it with me when I am undertaking a project. I also like the fact that it will fit into small areas where swinging a hammer would be difficult or impossible. It also seems very safe as it will not fire a nail unless it is in contact and some pressure is applied to the tip. It's probably safer than my hammer, which has "got" me a few times over the years.

          I've been working in construction on and off for most of my adult life. In that time I've used everything from cheap harbor freight guns to top of the line Duofast. This gun is easily just as high in quality as its $350 counterparts. The first thing I noticed about it was the light weight which is an excellent feature when you have a bag full of framing nails hanging from your hip. I also like the overmoulded grip. Also when framing I prefer using Duo Fast resin bond 20 degree nails. Though this is a 21 degree gun it has no issues. Now I've only had the gun for a couple of weeks so I can't speak for how long this quality will last. But Rigid alleviates that worry with an excellent warranty. I can confidently say this gun is a steal for the price.

          I removed a wall at a hair salon that had a cold air return in it and there was 3 joist spaces with no floor that I had to repair. There was no way I could have added support for the new subfloor without taking the entire cold air return apart in basement which was no easy feat because of drain and waterlines, but I was able to easily reach the palm nailer into cold air return through the holes cut in floor and add nailers to install subfloor. Saved me easily a half days work! Tool paid for itself just in this first job! Highly highly recommend this tool!! Great for tight spaces and awkward positions

          Tough nailer! I purchased this framing nailer last winter and used it to build my cabin this summer. I put several boxes of 8p ring shank nails building the floor and sheathing the walls and roof deck. Also used it to frame the walls and rafters using 16p nails. Occasional jams were cleared easily.

            I have shot a few thousand nails and have enjoyed the lightweight and power of the framer. At first I had some fairly serious jams, enough to scrapes some of the anodiizing off. But lately it has been working great . The palm nailer is cute and all but I have not fond a good use for it . I tend to go old school and use a framing hammer.

            Love it.
            I love this palm nailer. It is definitely built well. Performs as expected. I did get oil on my hand coming from somewhere inside the tool. Not sure if its normal. It comes with a bottle of oil and an allen wrench which tells me oil is part of its maintenence but hoping to find out if it is normal for it to get on my hand during use.

              About the worst thing I can say this nail gun is awesome !!! I have used many nail guns in my 64 years of life, and this gun is as smooth as any I've ever used. At 90 psi compressor pressure, and it's sinking 3 and a quarter inch nails. It cost more than the NuMax that I returned, but you're not going to get the best for the same price as the cheaper tools, but more was well worth the extra cash I had to pay for the Rigid. I should have learned that lesson with the Rigid hammer drill I bought a few months back. Both are excellent tool made for working. Oh, and you can't beat a nail gun with a cleat for toe nailing, and this gun comes with both options of the round nose or the cleat nose!!! I returned the NuMax because it didn't have the cleat option for easy toe nailing!!!!

              Very Solid and works well but very loud.
              First thing I want to note is how loud this unit is. Please make sure you wear hearing protection. Now that I'm done with my public service announcement, what a well built tool. This is fairly heavy for its size but it does exactly what it is suppose to and will drive nails with no effort on your part. It is small enough to drive nails in pretty tight places where a hammer wouldn't fit. Keep in mind it is only to be used with larger head nails. I was playing with it and had a large finish nail and I managed to jam it so make sure you are using the recommend 6d nails and it works.

              Simple to use, efficient and effective
              This nailer is handy for getting larger nails into tight spaces where a framing nailer will not fit, or for mid-sized projects that brads are not right for. It can be used right or left handed. The male coupler is attached and it's ready to use right out of the box. The drive depth can be adjusted to set the nail as deep as required, although selecting the depth setting is not very clear based on the markings on the tool. It took some experimentation to figure out. There are two magnets in the driver to hold the nail, which do the job. Setting the nail properly and driving it straight into the work surface takes some practice. I had several in the beginning that went in at a terrible angle, got bent or went in somewhere I did not want them to. This improved with use. I tried all sorts of nails in the beginning to get used to it. Finish nails are not appropriate; you are better off with a brad nailer. I was able to fit roofing nails in the driver for use, and found such larger head nails to be best suited for the tool (such as common nails

              Super Fast
              I’ve never used a pneumatic palm nailer before getting this tool, and I have sometimes struggled with hand nailing in very tight inside corners, where limited clearance makes it impractical to use a traditional air gun or swing a hammer. This thing is terrific, making very short work of driving nails. The magnetic guide easily grips common nails, though it can take some practice to drive them straight (see picture), -- because the nails are driven quickly, there’s little time to “steer” them, as you might do when hand nailing. The swivel air connector does a fine job of keeping the hose out of the way (see picture). The weight and the grip felt comfortable for me (see picture). I noticed a small hissing sound and a little air escaping through the palm side of the nailer – not sure if this is “normal,” but I did not encounter any problems driving nails. I use a lot of pneumatic tools, so I have a 26 gallon, 5 HP compressor which was more than adequate for this small tool. Not sure if the performance might suffer somewhat with a smaller compressor due to the small passage of air at all times. For me, it’s a fine tool to have to conquer space restrictions.

                        Had great hopes for this little beauty. Smaller 10d and 12d up to 1-1/2” went very well. But the unit couldn’t handle 16d 3-1/2” galvanized common nails into 2x8 (1-1/2” into end grain) pressure treated framing members. Compressor held 100psi throughout.

                              Only purchased for joist hangers on an 8x8 and 12x32 decks and it made it through the 8x8 and 2/3 through the 12x32. not happy at all! Ordered in April and so busy I forgot to register it. FYI you only have 90 days to register or they don't stand by the warranty at all!!! it was never dropped or incorrect nails used. only hung 71 brackets. :(
