Cordless nailer
Anyne ever used a cordless nailer. I saw an 18V nailer at the Black and Decker outlet. I don't do heavy duty or big jobs.....just adding/installing new trim/baseboards in my house. Is this thing any good?

For trim you'll want a 16 guage finish nailer. I'd guess what you're seeing is an 18 gauge brad nailer.

Aside from that, I've not seen much good from black and decker. I'd avoid it.

I use a Dewalt 18V finish nail gun just about every day. It comes in ~$400, so it's probably not what you're looking for. Nails up to 2 1/2" with variable depth, and it's all battery - no fuel cell or anything like that.

My 2 cents.

B/D is Dewalt's lesser line. In other words Dewalt is made by Black and Decker.

There stuff is pretty good for HO use, although I would never bring it on a job site.
