And without being encumbered by an air hose and a compressor plugged into an outlet, you can move about easily. No wonder professional finish carpenters love these things. Take a look below at info on five of the top five cordless nail guns from our test, then scroll down to read about our testing process as well as in-depth reviews of these and other models. DeWalt makes a great all-around nailer with outstanding ergonomics and enough power for most hardwoods and all softwoods.

The NTDMS is a good, sturdy gun with a great work light at the tip, excellent ergonomics, lack of recoil, and decent power. If you work mostly in softwoods with thin hardwood, it has enough power.

To put these nailers through the paces, we fired them into a variety of materials typically used in finish carpentry and craft projects.

When we increased the length of the nail, we doubled up the oak so that the gun was firing into either oak that was 1. For rapid-fire simulations, we prepared strips of various materials, such as white pine, radiata pine, birch and fir plywood, and MDF medium density fiberboard.

However, just to be on the safe side, anytime that we simulated a test in trim or built-in cabinet construction, we positioned our test materials either as a single layer or as a sandwich of various materials over Douglas fir, a common and tough framing material.

That way, we could be sure that the nailer was capable of not only firing through the test materials on the front of the wall, but the framing in the wall itself. Yet we looked askance at its claim that this gauge nailer can fire reliably into two-inch oak.

Well, not only does the do this, it sets each nail with an impeccable and crisp cavity above the head, perfect for accepting filler.

And there ends our brief career as Milwaukee skeptics. It also has a slim profile and a well-shaped grip that contribute to its easy-handling nature. The makes nailing trim a pleasure. Weight : 6 lb.

Battery : 2 Ah. Eighteen-gauge nails are finicky. The longer the nail gets, the harder it is for them to reliably sink the skinny things into hardwoods without either misfiring and jamming in the nose or the nail firing into the material but not properly setting below the surface. The DeWalt is different, consistently firing one nail after the other into red oak without a problem. Place the gun, fire, next nail. But the new Craftsman has more nail-driving power, a better sight line to its tip, and a more comfortable handle.

We reliably fired nails into softwood up to 2. Just be warned, when we fired 2. That aside, this is a good, sturdy, and reliable nailer. This Metabo and the Craftsman above are almost identical in performance, with this tool having slightly less long-nail capability in both hardwood and Douglas fir. When we attempted to fire the 2.

Put it this way: For most softwood trim installation, this nailer is a good choice. Given that you use a nail gun it some pretty odd positions, from crouching low to fasten baseboard to using it overhead to pin moldings to a coffered ceiling, we appreciated its slim handle and the position of its nitrogen-charged cylinder at the front of the tool that, coincidentally, forms a good handle for many of these odd nailing positions.

Weight : 6. Battery : 1. But it is inexpensive and quite effective for most of the jobs that a homeowner will need it for when fastening together two pieces of softwood—think during craft projects, when nailing on softwood door and window molding, baseboard, and small crown molding, and when attaching shoe molding. Also, the dial at the back of the tool makes it fast and easy to adjust output air pressure to control nail depth.

Turning the dial clockwise increases air pressure and driving power, while turning it counterclockwise has the opposite effect.
