Very poor, Disappointed
29 Jun 2013
By JLPS

"I found this to be poor but to a price.....
It is quite cheap compared to the Finishing gas nailer’s or newer Cordless Nailer s
that also have issues if you read the reviews on them.
But it does not deliver on the specifications indicated for its use.
Stairs, Banisters, Fencing or anything that needs a solid fixing is a no no with this tool other than tacking in place till glue goes off or screws go in.
It does work well for skirting, mouldings and architraves and the like or craft / hobby work
basically anything that does not take weight or require stability.
That said
Nails / Pins do not go all the way in most times and need to be tapped in with a punch.
The cord / flex is short. Reaching up to an overhead door architrave means lifting the extension reel at the same time adding weight and awkwardness or moving a step or other raised platform into position before starting work to elevate the extension
The nail chamber jams when closing it if I use a full strip or new nails so I need to break the strip in to two halves. Not sure why, the full strip is supposed to fit might just be my item and not every nailer.... I am using proper tacwise nails.
Cant speak for reliability yet but for the price, if it lasts to the years guarantee I will not grumble.
For features this item does have a nice feature for clearing jammed nails from the firing mechanism.
The tools is small, light and compact for tight spaces.
I am not new to Tacwise, products or the very thin nails they fire
I own a Master Nailer™ 500EL Pro ( not working any more).
I thought the replacement product would be a match or better (as its newer) NO, WRONG
I got an inferior product.
(old nailer also boasts the same blurb about being suitable for stairs and the like, which it was not. I didn’t expect this model to do it either I only added it to the review to warn any would be buyer, the Tacwise 0733 is no good, for that type of work).
Old nailer did bang them in all the way 99% of the time though, and had a longer flex
If it was not for the price and the fact I have a lot of unused nails (1,000s of them in various sizes bought for my old nailer) it would be going back to screwfix for a refund."

Nailer OR TACKER ?
24 Apr 2013
By HippyGardener

"Well made, But TACKS sit proud, it also leaves an impression in wood.
Nice item but expensive for what it is; would be better described as TACKER.
I bought to repair fence panels for which it is useless; the TACKS have no head and are too thin!"
