    Have you checked out port-cables new cordless nailers they sell at lowes . It runs just on battery I believe .

    i didn’t realize porter cable came out with one, the battery looks pretty lightweight which is good. I personally have been considering one but haven’t decided on one.

    Not sure about the porter cable … from what I see it’s fairly plain looking … I need to get hands on to get a feel for some tools.

    A trip to one of the local Rona’s drew a complete blank … they had not a one in stock (except Paslode) and nor have they ever had one. The old fella in charge of the tool section looked at me blankly when I asked to see other ranges of battery (airless) nailers.

    “You mean there are others?” He said ….. sigh!!!

    Doesn’t surprise me at the least from the store carrying so few . They really should hire retired tradesmens . They who up sell on a lot of tools .

    Always willing to learn .

    Been real happy with our Dewalt framer. I am thinking their 16g nailer would be nice to have.

    I like the review of that Senco Fusion. A bit expensive but doable.
    I used a Ryoby for couple of days and I liked that too ( compared to 18 gauge Dewalt that I didn’t like ). Different class, different money compared to Senco Fusion. But reliable.

    The Millbank store is a fantastic place … we need more of those tool store around and not the big box types. Shut today … sigh!!!

    So lads what did I plump for I here you all ask . I took yesterday off to head over to Millback Hardware and tool store as I was informed by @smallerstick (Peter) that they had a sale on.


    Dewalt isle fair made my eyes water


    What made Millwaulkee famous?


    I brought this red beauty home


    Fuel for thought …


    Its in the bag …


    Sigh … my first Millwaukee …


    Charger and battery ready to go …

    I looked at 3 gun’s the DeWalt 18V CORDLESS 2″ 18 GAUGE BRAD NAILER which seemed rather old school now and felt huge and cumbersome in my hand.

    Next was the Makita
    which was a vast improvement on the DeWalt design and size wise.

    I next looked at the Millwaukee you see above, and right away like what I saw.

    Price wise the cheapest was the DeWalt at almost $300 plus bucks, next was the Millwaukee at $429

    Then came the Makita at something like $465 … the problem was that was the tool only, I would have had to fork out more cash for a charger and battery.

    The Millwaukee came as you see it as a kit, all in for the price you see.

    Congrats. It’s a little bit different with the safety nose being on the bottom, it took me a few weeks to get used to it but now I love mine.

    That is a sweet little nail gun. Very red too. I was looking at 18 ga. nailers there too but nothing seriously. Of course I looked at a lot of things.

    Here is a link to an article comparing several of the cordless brad nailers on the market. Grex and Ridgid came out on top.

    I really hate to see battery platform I have not measure up. without adding a platform, you have to deal with a substandard tool or go without. Bosch was not in the mix as they exited this market.

    Interesting article … thanks for sharing. Where I bought the gun give a satisfaction guarantee of 30 days. So no doubt I will be making that return if I’m not happy.

    As you can see I went for the Millwalkee … had the store stocked Bosch and given me a demo I would have gone for the Bosch perhaps.

    I have used the 16ga. A lot and it has a hard time coping. I am on my 3rd one now and it should last a long time because I don’t carry it with me.
