Everwin Coil Framing Nailer FCN90

Everwin Coil Framing Nailer FCN90

The Everwin Coil Framing Nailer dubs itself the most compact 3-1/2 inch coil framing nailer on the market. The FCN90 model number differs slightly from the 2017 Pro Tool Innovation Award-winning FCN90L, which is the lightest coil framer available. Our crew put this Everwin framing tool to the test on many jobs over the last few […]

Makita AN924 framing nailer

Makita AN924 Framing Nailer

We used the new Makita AN924 Framing Nailer on several jobs over a period of several weeks including a complete home remodel. The work required the construction and modification of more than a few stud walls. Having used a Hitachi NR90AE nailer for over a decade, the Makita AN924 held its own as a powerful […]

Metabo HPT NR83A5 Pneumatic Framing Nailer

There are a lot of solid framing nailers on the job, but Metabo HPT’s have been a tradesman’s favorite for years now. Reliable, low-maintenance, and powerful, the NR83 and the NR90 models have built more trusses, windows, sub-floors, roofs, and all other types of framing than anyone can count.

Makita Framing Nailer Review – AN923

When we ran our Best Framing Nailer Shootout, we expected to see the classics crop up in the top finishing places.

Metabo HPT NR90AES1M 3-1/2″ Framing Nailer Review

When we published the results of our best framing nailer review, we got some feedback echoing our same thoughts – why didn’t Metabo HPT (formerly Hitachi) do better? The NR83A5 is one of the best-built framing nailers available, but after our battery of tests, it came in 10th place overall. Still, we want to know […]
