    Could not find the thread on these baby’s.. Merge if needed.

    I find when doing trim that a nail set is a must have. I wish it weren’t but it is.. I’ve been using the spring loaded ones and they work good for me. As long a you don’t pull them into tomorrow and break the spring. I use the Spring Tools nail sets that made in the USofA

    Now I see these from Hart a TTI chinese company and I’ve sure these are made in china too. I see the clown selling them never says how well they work. Pure sales pitch.

    I have never used a spring loaded nail set, may have to order one. I have always used the tradition straight nail set but have recently upgraded to the Japanese style nail set from Lee Valley.

    I always thought they were BS till you recommended one a while back Dirty. I have looked for one a few times with no luck finding them. Now that Hart is making one it might just end up is some stores.

    i’ve seen these around home depot and what not, i was using them with a hammer to mark spots i want to drill on annealed steel. I switched to a spring loaded marking tool. I didn’t realize they were using to set nails below the surface

    Ron the ones Dirty recommends can be purchased at his link. They are not very expensive either.

    I am still just a regular nail set guy too. I have seen the spring loaded ones in my Sherwin Williams but thought they seemed like a gimic. For no more than they cost I may try one. I don’t like having a hammer on me when trimming so it would be nice to have on me and not need a hammer to set a few nail.

    Traditional nail set for me also. I think some of the spring loaded ones are too gimmicky.

    I keep forgetting that SW has them. Going to have to try to remember next time there.

    I have both types… But unfortunately All of my Spring tools nail punches are broken! After a short period of light use they all started to crack at the tips. Apparently they have a lifetime warranty…. But the manufacturer is impossible to contact. They don’t return calls or emails, so the warranty is kind of bogus.

    I am interested in the spring loaded nail sets. Never seen one but sounds interesting. I like my spring loaded center punches.

    Never used the spring loaded nail setters, just the traditional style,
    At work in sheet metal for center punching a starting point hole, we used the spring loaded styles, bought the Starrett products, they last long time, and the tips can even be changed.

    Never used the spring loaded ones either.

    Having nail guns really has made it so I don’t need a nail set as much. Just occasionally. So I stick will the old fashioned type nail set.

    I could see where a spring loaded set would come in handy if you were a painter. Having just the nail set in your pocket when prepping instead of lugging a hammer around also.

    I’ll go ahead and vouch for the Spring Tools sets.
    They’re great…been using them for the last 3+ years now. Broke one in that time, and someone lost another one (that was promptly replaced by them).
    I still have my traditional nail sets, but the spring set is with me at all times (thanks to the amount of storage in a pair of Blakladers).
    All I’m missing to round out the useful collection is the hinge pin popper.

    I have the Spring Toosls set, they work well. My wife likes them also for when she is filling nailholes on trim. It is much easier for her to use than a standard ail set. This is my favorite nail set however. It is a lot easier to hold and mire ergonomic than a standard nailset.

    That’s what I like is the no hammer to carry around.
