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?

Cordless nailer

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.

Cordless nailer

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.
