History and experience teaches us that there are many different tools needed both on the jobsite and in the shop: tools for driving fasteners are no exception. The Bostitch PN100K Impact Nailer is just such a specialty tool, constructed for driving common bulk nails in tight spaces or for nailing off metal connectors and joist hangers.
- ergonomic design for comfort on the worksite
- a magnetic nose with recessed nail slot
- and hardened steel magnetic nose stabilizes nail for accurate placement.
Operation appears pretty simple; Like many other nailing tools it is powered by 100 PSI of compressed air and has an electronic nose trigger that fires when it’s lined up and pressure is applied.
The jist here seems to be that a smaller a smaller more ergonomic answer is better than some of the larger clunky guns that flood the jobsite on a regular basis — at least when space is tight. We could defiantly see the advantage to a tool like this but wonder also if it offers enough power for larger jobs. Also, the PN100K looks to carry a smaller payload than standard nail guns in its league, so that may be an issue as well if you’re a professional contractor.
