Blown away by new finish nailer
Stanley Bostitch, one of the largest fastenings brands in the world, has announced the introduction of a new 15 gauge finish nailer that comes with a host of break-through features to truly make pros more productive.
Stanley Bostitch Product Director Adam Kippen explains: “Extensive field research identified a number of features that users wanted to see, so we have a specially-designed finish nailer that receives high marks from pros and advanced woodworkers alike.” The new N62FNB-E is designed for applications such as the installation of molding, door/window casings, trim, flooring, furniture and advanced woodworking.
One of the tool’s most innovative features is an integrated LED worklight, which lights up the work surface for precise fastening in low-light situations. “The innovation doesn’t stop there,” said Mr Kippen. “It also provides an on-board dust blower for clearing the work surface from dust and debris without slowing down.” A third break-through feature is the addition of the world’s first rear exhaust on a 15 gauge nailer, located at the end of the handle, to direct air away from the user and eliminate blowback.
Weighing only 1.8kg, the magnesium-constructed N62FNB-E accepts FN-style 15 gauge angled finish nails (collated at 25°) between 25 - 64mm in length. The tool’s weight & balance are complemented by an over-molded grip to help maximize comfort and minimize fatigue during overhead applications or prolonged use. Its oil-free design requires no regular maintenance, nor does it pose the risk of irreversible oil stains on expensive trim material.
With a storage capacity of 129 nails, the tool’s magazine has a dry-fire lockout feature to prevent the driver blade from creating unsightly marks on stain-grade trim after the magazine empties its nail reserve. The magazine is also fitted with a handy integrated pencil sharpener.
The N62FNB-E features Dial-A-Depth® technology for setting nails to precise depths without changing compressor settings. Clearing jams is done in a matter of seconds thanks to a tool-free quick-release nosepiece. It features a swivel air fitting for added maneuverability while its integrated filter protects the tool’s internal components from contaminants. A selectable trigger system, located slightly above the trigger, converts from sequential to contact mode in just seconds.
