Paslode - 18-Gauge Brad Driver T200-F18
The Paslode 18-gauge brad driver features a nail-depth adjustment mechanism and drives nails from 5/8 in. to 2 in. long.
A good 18-ga. brad nailer should be able to drive a variety of nail sizes and to place the nail where you want it to go. It should be easy to load and indicate clearly when the nail supply is low. The safety guard should be positioned behind the nose to give a better view of nail placement, and a driver-guide cover that’s easy to remove makes clearing jammed nails a breeze. The depth-of-set adjusters should be easy to read and use, and the exhaust port should be adjustable to direct air away from the user. A one-handed carriage-release lever is convenient. The Paslode nailer was the favorite in the group. This lightweight tool has serious power and drove nails consistently. The depth of set was easliy adjusted and nail jams cleared quickly. It has an easy-to-read nail-capacity view port.
