Bostitch entered two models into our Framing Nailer Shootout back in July. One was their pneumatic F21PL2 that impressed us with an overall 5th place finish. This model, the BCF30PTM1 Bostich cordless framing nailer, does away with the hoses in favor of a 20V Max battery pack. But can this cordless edition hang with the solid performance […]

Bostitch Anti-Vibe Hammer Tacker

One of the leading causes of injury on the jobsite caused by long term exposure is vibration.

While the most common culprits are aggressive tools like reciprocating saws or rotary […]

Bostitch Smart Point Brad Nailer Review

In the world of pneumatic nailers there’s not much that excites me anymore, unless we’re talking about brad nailers and Jennifer Aniston in the same sentence.

Bostitch MFN-201 Manual Flooring Cleat Nailer Kit Review

Bostitch MFN-201 Manual Flooring Cleat Nailer Kit Review

While it is not everyday that we need to install tongue and groove flooring, we recently had an opportunity to put down about 2000 square feet of 6” wide cypress. The cypress is a lot softer then say oak or bamboo but the process is the same for all kinds of both pre-finished and post-finished nail-down flooring.
