PORTER-CABLE Introduces Woodworking Nailers and Staplers
JACKSON, Tenn. (May
20, 2008) – PORTER-CABLE unveils a
new line of six pneumatic woodworking nailer and stapler kits offering a maintenance-free
motor design and innovative on-board features to deliver consistent
performance and long life.
Designed with an oil-free motor, the new
nailers and staplers reduce the possibility of work surface contamination and promote
hassle-free operation. The maintenance-free motor design utilizes a dual-stack ring
design and an internal piston catch. The dual-stack design consists of an outer
ring to reduce friction and increase surface contact, while the inner ring maintains
a proper seal against the cylinder. By holding the piston at the highest position
in the cylinder, the piston catch ensures accurate nail setting and maximum
power on each shot.
18-GAUGE NAILERS & STAPLERS
The PORTER-CABLE® 18-gauge brad nailers
and narrow crown staplers offer a rear exhaust port to further help keep
contaminants away from the work surface; a tool-free depth-of-drive feature with detents to precisely set nail heads and staples; and
a tool-free adjustable belt clip for hands-free carrying when not in use. A
reload indicator, located on the magazine, also shows when the nailers and
staplers are running low on fasteners.
efficient operation over the life of the nailer, the 1-3/8 inch brad nailer
(model BN138) and 2-inch brad nailer (model BN200B) offer a tool-free jam
release mechanism. If jams should occur, the mechanism allows for the easy
removal of materials from the exposed nose.
The 1-inch narrow crown stapler (model NS100B) and 1-1/2
inch narrow crown stapler (model NS150B) are upgraded with a fully-enclosed magazine for added
protection. In addition, the NS150B comes with a selectable trigger that results in quick
transitions between different applications. The trigger switches between
sequential (single fire) and bump (multiple fire) modes.
The 18-gauge brad
nailers and narrow crown staplers are ideal for installing molding and interior trim, wall paneling, hardwood flooring, cabinets, frames and
assembling drawers. The brad nailer kits, models BN138 and BN200B, are currently available for $79 and $99, and the narrow
crown stapler kits, models NS100B and NS150B, are available for $89 and $109.
The PORTER-CABLE® 16-gauge, 2-1/2 inch finish nailer (model FN250C) and
15-gauge, 2-1/2 inch angle finish nailer (model DA250C) feature a tool-free
adjustable exhaust port and a “Load & Lock” easy-loading magazine system.
The “Load & Lock” system consists of inserting the nails into the rear of the magazine and then sliding the
pusher back to engage the nails.
an angle magazine, the 15-gauge angle finish nailer allows users to maneuver in
tight spaces and eliminates magazine interference during the installation of
crown molding. The nailer offers added holding power for larger, heavier
molding and trim by using a 15-gauge nail.
For ease of
use, both finish nailers are also equipped with a tool-free jam release
mechanism, a depth-of-drive feature and an adjustable belt clip.
installing interior trim, door and window casings, paneling, cabinets,
staircases and hardwood flooring, the finish nailer kits, models FN250C and
DA250C, will be available for purchase in June 2008 for $169 and $189.
