How It Works: Cordless finish nailer

In this "How It Works" article, associate editor Rob Yagid takes one model, the Paslode IM250A, and explains what powers it, how its combustion process works, and how it drives a fastener through a piece of trim.

Cordless finish nailers take the hassle and some of the frustration out of working with pneumatic nailers tied to an air hose and a compressor. Associate editor Rob Yagid takes one model, the Paslode IM250A, and explains what powers it, how its combustion process works, and how it drives a fastener through a piece of trim. He also includes information on maintenance, such as replacing gas cartridges and cleaning and oiling the tool. A cutaway drawing makes it easy to see how this tool operates.
