    Man that’s a great price on that power box.

    Wonder if Slims will have that low or lower price soon.

    That was the Slims price I was talking about. Slims doesn’t get the bulk buying prices that the bog boxxes do.

    I know this thread is older but I just saw the 16 gauge Bosch finish nailer at Menards for $89. I won’t be using it everyday so I was wondering if it would be worthwhile to buy or should I pony up more money and go with another brand. I’m slowly putting together a small hobby wood shop but hope to use it more often in the future. Just looking for feedback from some of you guys with more knowledge.

    the fns250-16 is a good gun in my opinion.
    i use it quite often and it never failed on my, no jam at all.
    i paid 169 for the gun at that time.
    you cant go wrong for that price

    I’ve never felt the need for a 16ga gun. I have a 15 and 18 and can’t see why I’d need the size in between.

    How’s the Bosch framer for wieght? Light wieght is most important to me these days.

    @Calidecks64
    i think its around 8 pounds but its well balanced.
    im not a framer or pro, just a DIY person and the full head nailer counts towards one of my fav tools.
    next time when i am in Chino Hills (great and big lowes store on peyton) i swing by and show you the gun.

    I stopped at Menards here to check out the deals on the nailers. They have the same deal as you guys have found for 90 bucks for the 16 gage nailer. They also have the FNA 250-15 on sale for 100.
    This is more of a want than a need for me but I am going to buy one of the two. This would just be used for me personally, I don’t really need it for work. I have some molding and trim that needs to be replaced in the house eventaully.

    What do you guys think is the better buy? Is there an advantage to the angle over the straight?

    the FNA250-15 is a good price too. here i cant get that one below 180.
    couple month ago i looked at that nailer too and did some research due to im not a pro, just a tiny DIY person with a huge tool addiction lol.
    It actually depends on what it is used for. The angled nailers usually have heavier gauged nails and are designed to get into tighter areas. The straight nailers have finer nails and are used more for exposed surfaces so you dont see the nail head as much as you would the angled one. Basically you need to decide what the applications you plan to use it for and decide which would better perform for you.
    Angled nailer would be nice for certain trim, molding jobs which you cant reach with a straight nailer.
    I did one door casings and all baseboards in my house with the FNS250-16

    The 15 is a bigger Nail obviously,..while the 16 is still considered a Brad.

    15ga nails are quite a bit more expensive, but the holding power is better too. I use a 15gauge myself, but I know guys who use a 16ga and are happy with their results.

    We use our 15 GA guns mostly for hanging doors and a little on exterior trim. 90+ percent or our interior trim is hung with 2″ 18 GA nails. we rarely use the 1 – 16 GA gun I have, I have 3 15 GA and as many or more 18GA, surprisingly the 3 – 23GA pinners get used a fair bit also.

    If you only want 1 gun, the 15 GA is a happy medium.

    Pulled the trigger and got myself the 15 gage nail gun and the contractor set of jig saw blades. Excited about the price of the gun and to finally have one. Looks like the trim and molding is getting replaced sooner than later!

    Thanks for the advice. When installing the air hookup do you like to use plumbers tape on the connection or do you use something else?

    I use teflon tape for all my fittings and then check with soapy water afterward.

    That is the route I normally go also, just was not sure if someone had a better way for nail guns.
