"Bought this to fix insulation and matchboarding. It has worked faultlessly so far. As some others have said, it needs to be held firmly against the wood to get the staples and brads fully home but if you do it can drive both to below the surface in softwood. There is some marking from the contact switch but not important for my needs."
"Bought this nailer to install new stair spindles, made the job quick and easy. Perfect for a DIYer at a reasonable cost. Only issue I found is the nail doesn't go all the way in, however a quick wack with the hammer does the job."
"Bought this to install beading around 16 windows in my summer house, excellant product, so easy to use rather than trying to use panel pins and a hammer! Takes 25mm nails and 22mm staples (some supplied). I am sure it will be used for other projects in the furture also keen price @ £29.99.."
"Bought this after a failed Tacwise flimsy thing. Used over a 1000 staples on it's first job, and no jams. Fired several hundered brads, again no jams. Always doing a Test Fix to make sure you have the correct setting and your holding it square. For the money, with a 2 year warranty, I made the right choice."
"Iv'e had a nail gun, had it for a couple of months now and it hasn't jammed or let me down, need to watch the length of the nails you use compared to the thickness of the wood as it doesn't drive the nails right home on thicker ply but nothing a tap with a hammer won't solve...very pleased with it so far."
"It feels well make for the price and is straight forward to use. The power is good but you do need to put quite a bit of body weight on the gun if you are using the 22mm staples to ensure they fully go in."
"Read other reviews, but bought anyway. Very pleased, although the action is a bit agricultural and can leave small dents on wood surface, and even on max power generally needs a bit of assistance with a tap from a hammer to get brads flush. Given price, that's not a problem as it has made the fixing so much easier than using a hammer and panel pins! Seems pretty well-built as well. Used 25mm 18ga Tacwise brads and not had a single jam."
"I wanted something to fit stock fencing to treated stakes. This did the job superbly. Yes, it needs a bit of pressure to get the staple all the way in, but for the price, I don't think you can grumble. Feels pretty well made for the price too. Would recommend."
"I had two problems. Firstly, If I wasn't positioned just right, I found it difficult to apply enough pressure to stop it from jumping away from the wood. When I did hold it tight enough, it drove home both 22mm staples and 25 mm nails satisfactorily. The second problem was when I changed from staples to nails. I didn't realise that, when I emptied out the staple, there was one staple still in the machine, which caused it to jam when I tried to use the first nail. Now, when I change over I check that the chamber is empty before putting in the other fixing. No more problems. I obviously don't yet know about reliability, hence, three stars."
""Heavy duty tool for fastening timber or lesser density materials. Easy jam clearance and contact safety switch. Supplied with 100 nails and 300 staples"
Assembled the hand tool and loaded a rack of Tacwise 18g nails. (these worked ok) Why they do not include more nails is a mystery. The actual nail compared to a panel pin is vastly thinner, hence in the manual instructions it states "Not suitable for the attachment of wall and ceiling panelling"
Its an ok tool as a basic tacker, but the site validator should check the product info includes more description. Not my best buy"
"I had a small job to do some months ago in softwood and bought this nailer to save time on manual mailing. I am thoroughly disappointed. Every nail was left hanging out of the wood and needed tapping in with a hammer. Anyway, it went back in the box for a few months until a few days ago when I needed it for another job in softwood. After several fixings (and knocking home with a hammer again!) it decided to jam. Easy enough to fix. Started using again, got a few pins in then it jams again, and again, and then fails altogether! It will be going back to Screwfix shortly. DO NOT BUY THIS RUBBISH!"
