BOSTITCH N62FNK-2 15-Gauge 1 1/4-Inch to 2-1/2-Inch Angled Finish Nailer
Great gun – EXTREMELY light
I bought this gun sight unseen (usually I go “touch” tools at the H— D—- first, but they didn’t have one) and am so far very pleased. When I took it out of the box, the first thing I noticed was how light it is. It’s amazing. Here’s my comments:
- The nail magazine is plastic and the housing is magnesium making this thing feel like a toy in your hand. I’m still a little skeptical about the plastic magazine and wonder if it would withstand the daily pounding of professional use (I’m only a heavy duty homeowner).
- The oil free engine is fantastic. No oil on your work and no need to remember to oil it.
- Easy to use and maintain.
- Pretty much jam free (I’ve shot plenty of nails through it already).
- VERY light.
- Only shoots Stanley nails (PC and Senco shoot a different type of nail). Not a problem as I see it – [One home improvement store] sells them in boxes of 5000 (PC sells their nails in boxes of 1000).
- Plastic magazine – Not sure…
Duo-fast vs. Bostich
From the sound of these reviews, the gun seems to work pretty good for homeowners & such. I’ve been a carpenter for 40 years. I’ve been using finish nailers for about 20 years. My last nail gun was a Duo-fast. I finally retired it recently, after 17+ years of service. Since the local lumber yard carries Bostich nails, I went with Bostich. I’ve had the gun 18 months & the piston rod has broken 3 times. Replacing it myself still cost me $35.00 a pop. Anybody who has trimmed a door or window or installed baseboard, knows it’s immpossible not to hit a screw head or sheetrock nail once in a while. Well, everytime I hit one, the piston rod breaks. It breaks in the exact same spot. It appears to made of cast aluminum or something, instead of hardened or stainless steel. I like the gun & am thinking about getting somebody to manufacture a functional rod for me, since Bostich doesn’t know how.
It’s the best !
I am a cabinet maker, and have been for more then 20 years, I bought a new bostitch T-36 finish nailer in 1983, to this day that gun has never failed to work, it has never been to a shop for repairs, of any kind. And I am very demanding of my tools, but I also take real good care of them and I do all of my own maintenance on my tools. I bought the new N62FNK-2 a few months ago because of carpo tunnel in my hands, and I needed a lighter gun to work with. All I can say is it is the best finish nailer to date that I have ever used, some of the things I really like about the N62 is it has low recoil in my hands when I shoot a nail, and the weight of the gun, and the balance, it’s just perfect. when I’m shooting face frames on cabinet boxes the rubber nose really helps to stabilize the gun. I also like the power that it has, I can shoot a 2 1/2″ nail thru 2 1/4″ of solid oak and counter sink it a 1/6″ at only 80lbs of air, and at a low counter sink setting using a 25′ hose, so just think…
