Bosch FNA250-15 15 ga Angled Finish Nailer Review

Bosch FNA250-15 Angled Finish Nailer Review

The FNA250-15 15-ga finish nailer from Bosch is quite possibly the most convenient and lightweight finish nailers we’ve used to-date. With conveniences like a trigger that can easily change modes without having to be replaced, to an adjustable drive depth that can be activated with your fingers, this tool is taking construction and finishing to a new level of simplicity. Its small size and lightweight frame makes it easy to maneuver into tight spots and get that last corner shot. We actually brought it along to a few job sites and interviewed several pros, letting them handle and use the Bosch FNA250-15 Finish Nailer for themselves. Reactions, while different, were all quite positive. Most shared similar comments about how the tool was easy to hold, had little girth, and could be adjusted at will. Though we never encountered any jams, the business end of the tool can be taken apart so easily that it was easy to see that any difficulties or problems could be dealt with quickly and conveniently.

It’s smaller than most brad nailers we’ve seen to-date. It’s also extremely light at just over two pounds.

Paslode T250A-F16 16-Gauge Angled Finish Air Nailer Review

The lightweight and compact Paslode T250A-F16 16-Gauge Angled Finish Air Nailer is a breath of fresh air in a market segment that is full of overweight and not so compact finish nailers. Even though this tool weighs in at just a little over three pounds, it is definitely a heavy hitter and will not wear you out after a long day of doing lots of trim. With a wide variety of fastener lengths, you can pretty much use this same nailer to install the smallest shoe moulding along with oversized crown.
