18175 16-Ga. Finish Nailer Review
The Craftsman 18175 16-g. finish nailer is a simple solid mangesium-body tool with a rear-loading magazine
This magnesium-body nailer is simple and solid. Like most nailers with rear-loading magazines that can’t be locked open, switching nails is a two-handed operation. On the plus side, it’s easy to see the length of the nails that are loaded. The exhaust port is difficult to rotate, and the depth selector spins a bit too easily. A push-and-spin switch makes it easy to select firing modes.
