Editor's Review: Tool Test: 16-Ga. Finish Nailers

review date: January 1, 2009

This nailer has everything I want and more: a side-loading magazine with easy nail identification and nail-changing, an anti-dry-fire feature, good line of sight that allows for accurate nail placement, a quality no-mar tip, and a depth adjustment so well incorporated that if you didn’t look for it, you might not know it was there. This oil-free nailer is also one of the lightest, most well-balanced models in the group. It has a rotating belt hook and onboard storage for its two hex wrenches. I could save a little bit of money and buy a less expensive model, but the fact that the Bostitch is right in the middle of the price range makes it my choice for best value as well.
