The Nikle NS2340 is the latest in 23-ga. nailers, offering the ability to drive both pins and brads without having to adjust or modify the gun. The Nikle holds 200 fasteners, and the carriage automatically adjusts to fit different lengths, from 1/2 in. to 1-9/16 in. long.
Extra thin, 23-ga. pins are ideal for finish work, providing a nearly invisible fastener. What’s more, the thin fasteners virtually eliminate the threat of splits in thin material, and their round shanks drive straighter than thicker-gauge fasteners. The problem with the headless pins is that they offer only minimal holding power. With 23-ga. brads, you get the benefits of headless pins with a significantly increased grip.
The Nikle performed beautifully. It did not jam during use, and it set even the longest pins accurately. A turret style air exhaust on top can be adjusted easily to direct the blast away from your face. A very narrow nose places nails accurately, and a double trigger helps prevent accidental firing. The nailer is lightweight and comfortable. To buy it go to www.floydtool.com or call 800-882-7060.
