nail stubbier


Years ago we use a nail stubbier to fasten metal track to concrete for metal framed walls. Where can I find a stubbier today?

If you talking about a Ram Set set, Lowes and HD both have them.

No thats not what I mean. This tool was a magnet and we would use 3/8 hard nail and hit them in with hammer. Im going back to early 80s.

If Google can't find it, it doesn't exist.

ive never heard them called a stubber.. its just a very very basic and cheap powder actuated tool, you still have to load a shot into it along with the pin. but instead of pullin the trigger you strike the back of the tool to fire the shot

they can be found in most big box stores, atleast the local shops. if you want something heavier duty like the hilti you'll have to try the hilti store or another contractor supply

That is close, it was like that but without the handle. It wasnt a hammer. It was like the replacement head. I thank you guys for trying. The replacement head may work for what I need.

Siding and gutter guys use tools like that all the time--I always beard them called pea shooters--

it's a tube with a plunger---I have one for trim nails somewhere---
