"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."
"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!"
"hi I brought this for some beading and simple tacking it would have been easy using a hammer and nails , fires 3-5 brads and just jams over the last week I spent more time fetching apart to clear jams than actual using it ,I would not recommend this at all"
