Duo-Fast Compact 1-1/2" TICO Nailer
Perfect for Joist Hangers.
Duo-Fast Construction (www.duo-fastconstruction.com) is introducing a compact, pneumatic 1-1/2" Tico Nailer, Model DF150S-TC. The tool is designed to fasten joist hangers into wood with 1-1/2" Tico nails. The tool features a single strip magazine that makes it easy to maneuver and get into tight spots.
"It is three times faster than hand nailing and twice as fast as a palm nailer, improving productivity and reducing labor costs," said Jacek Romanski, Marketing Manager for Duo-Fast Construction. "It features a Locator Probe which allows the worker to quickly and easily locate the hole on the metal hardware. It is faster and more user friendly than other competitive tools that use nails as their locator."
The DF150S-TC is a very durable tool, built for the professional contractor to withstand jobsite abuse with less moving parts and a high quality aluminum housing. The tool was designed primarily for contractors focused on building single and multi-family homes.
Other features include a steel rafter hook, adjustable air exhaust, cushion grip and a four nail lockout to prevent dry firing.
The Tico Nailer is at its best when used with Duo-Fast paper tape collated Tico nails. As a system, they improve drive performance, prolong tool life and reduce down time. The Duo-Fast 1-1/2" Tico nails are specially designed and heat-treated to reduce ricocheting and nail bending. Each nail is head marked for easy identification, and are available in .131 and .148 shank diameters - brite and galvanized. They are ICC-ES recognized under ER2126.

Porter-Cable maintenance-free 23-gauge 1-3/8" pin nailer kit
PORTER-CABLE announces the first ever maintenance-free pin nailer with its new 23GA, 1-3/8" Pin Nailer Kit (model PIN138), offering long life, consistent performance and innovative on-board features.
The PIN138 meets the needs of professionals and serious woodworkers who are looking to fasten materials while keeping nail visibility to a minimum and still delivering superior holding power. The PORTER-CABLE pin nailer fastens materials that would normally split using larger tools, providing greater flexibility and saving time on projects.
Designed with a "Maintenance-Free Long Life" motor, the new 23GA, 1-3/8" Pin Nailer Kit requires no oil to be added to the tool. The motor utilizes a dual-stack ring system where the outer ring is designed to minimize internal friction, resulting in longer tool life.
The consistent power and penetration of the PIN138 is delivered through an internal piston catch that holds the piston-driver assembly at the highest position in the cylinder, resulting in maximum power on each shot and ensuring accurate nail setting. "The PIN138 is designed to counter-sink a 1-3/8" nail into hard materials like oak," said Silveira.
The PIN138 also provides the option of using headless and slight headed 23GA pin nails from 1/2" to 1-3/8" in length.
Featuring a dry-fire lock-out, the PIN138 will not allow users to fire the tool when there are no nails remaining in the tool. The dry-fire lock-out feature eliminates witness marks, empty nail holes in the material. In addition, a low nail indicator is provided on the outside of the side-loading magazine to alert when nails are running low. For added convenience, the PIN138 holds 130 pin nails and automatically adjusts to different fastener lengths to provide easier loading and has fewer problems with pin nails that are out of spec.
The PIN138 includes additional features that further protect your work surface from being damaged. The tool comes equipped with a rear exhaust, which directs any potential moisture and contaminates away from the work surface. The PIN138 is designed with a narrow nose for improved visibility and features a removable non-marring tip that eliminates wood indentations. An extra non-marring tip is provided and stored on the tool for when the need arises. Plus, a rubberized PORTER-CABLE logo on the side of the tool provides soft contact if the tool were laid on the work surface.
Weighing only 2.2 pounds, the PIN138 still delivers durability with its aluminum body and magazine construction. The reversible belt clip allows the user to keep the tool by their side for when it is needed. Ideal for cabinet makers, cabinet installers, furniture builders and mantle builders, the PIN138 is appropriate for light fastening and clamping applications including, but not limited to, small trim and small decorative moldings, cabinet crown molding, raised panel doors, rope and bead molding, mantle building and wood joining.
The PORTER-CABLE 23GA, 1-3/8" Pin Nailer Kit includes the pin nailer, 2000 headless pin nails, a ¼" plug with cap, a wrench for internal access and a carrying case. It is backed by a three-year limited warranty and includes one year of free service and a ninety-day money back guarantee. The PIN138 has a suggested retail price of $149.
Duo-Fast 250BN 16-gauge hardwood flooring finish nailer
Duo-Fast Floor Fastening Systems introduces the FloorMaster 250BN 16-Gauge Hardwood Flooring Finish Nailer. This addition to the Duo-Fast line of installation tools provides installers with a faster, more accurate way to perform blind and face nailing when installing hardwood flooring that is sure to increase user productivity.
“Duo-Fast engineers spent extensive time with hardwood installers nationwide and listened to what they wanted in a hardwood flooring installation tool,” said Rita Bockrath, Marketing Manager for Duo-Fast Floor Fastening Systems. “The result of this research is the FloorMaster™ 250BN, in effect, a nailer designed by hardwood installers for hardwood installers.”
The FloorMaster 250BN has a number of features that no other nailer has and make it best-in-class. These features include:
In addition, with the 250BN, blind nailing isn’t so blind due to a better line of sight than any other flooring finish nailer. This helps with the precise placement into the 45º pocket of the tongue. It also features bump fire actuation to further increase the installer’s productivity, and a 360º adjustable exhaust cap to keep exhaust out of the users face.
The FloorMaster 250BN uses 16-gauge finish nails, another key feature that installers wanted in their nailer. This leaves a smaller, less visible hole when face nailing but this nailer has the power to drive with ease into all wood types including denser exotics, such as Brazilian Cherry.
SENCO Fusion Finish Nailers Combine Best of Air, Cordless Technologies
Say good-bye to costly fuel cells and battery ramp-up times. SENCO's pneumatic driven, Li-ion powered Fusion technology is a new breakthrough in power fastening
Pneumatic tool pioneer SENCO is yet again revolutionizing the power fastening category, this time with the introduction of its Fusion line of finish nailers.
The new Fusion15- and 18-gauge finish nailers combine the best of air and cordless technologies to maximize job site performance and portability. At the same time, they eliminate the drawbacks associated with traditional gas and battery powered nailers, including fuel cell replacement costs, tool weight and "ramp-up" times.
"Fusion's unique design is ideal for trim crews, remodelers, punch-out teams, and serious DIYers who don't want to deal with the hassle of a hose and compressor but still want the benefits of a pneumatic tool," says Dave Moore, director of product marketing.
Fusion is powered by a reliable 18V Lithium Ion Phosphate (LiFePo4) battery that can reach an 80% charge in just 15 minutes. The tool's patented Reflex Shot design provides an instant trigger response and delivers up to 500 drives between charges.
"A gear box and lifter force the piston and driver blade against self-contained air within the cylinder, compressing it so that when the trigger is pulled, it drives nails powerfully and consistently even into hardwoods," adds Joe Knueven, Product Manager. "The air pressure is pre-set at the factory, permanently sealed and never needs recharging."
Among Fusion’s many features, users can choose between sequential or contact actuation depending on the job. The tool-free, adjustable depth-of-drive feature combined with the nose mounted LED work surface light ensures accurate fastener placement and counter sinks. The EZ-Clear removable magazine makes fastener removal a breeze.
Fusion features a robust ¼” aluminum drive cylinder and durable over molding. At 6 pounds, the ergonomically balanced nailers are nearly 2.5 pounds lighter than competitive models, (thanks in part to the Lithium Ion Phosphate battery), and can be comfortably operated with one hand.

Duo-Fast Construction Coil Siding Nailer Is Tough, Lightweight and Productive
Duo-Fast Construction has introduced a new Coil Siding Nailer, Model DF225C.
It is a lightweight, powerful tool designed to handle production nailing of siding, fencing and decking. It is even more productive when used as a system with Duo-Fast “CI” and “CS” series plastic collated round head coil nails.
“Our new lightweight coil siding nailer is one tough, durable tool that was designed specifically to work with our CI and CS nails as a system,” said Tracy Tryboski, Marketing Manager for Duo-Fast Construction. “When used as a system, the contractor will experience fewer nail jams, less wasted nails and fewer clean up hassles, making the job quicker and easier to complete.”
The engineers at Duo-Fast Construction have packed the new DF225C with many features that will make this the tool of choice on the jobsite. It weighs just 4.5 pounds to lessen worker fatigue. With its tool-less depth of drive, workers can quickly and accurately seat nails into siding to the manufacturer’s specifications, thereby avoiding overdrives and warranty issues. Plus when used with Duo-Fast CI and CS series nails, which are 0-degree plastic collated, there is no worry about rust staining the siding as can happen with wire-weld collated coil nails.
The new Coil Siding Nailer also features a durable rafter hook, a 360º adjustable exhaust cap and a comfortable rubber grip for all day use.

Stanley Bostitch Mini Impact Nailer
60% smaller design improves maneuverability in metal connector applications.
Stanley-Bostitch announces a new mini impact nailer, the PN50.
Weighing only 1 pound, the PN50 is 60% smaller and lighter than previous Stanley-Bostitch models to provide ultimate accessibility in tight spaces.
Featuring a multi-blow operation, this tool is designed to drive bulk nails individually into materials by inserting a nail into the magnetic drive channel and then pressing the nail into the metal connector hole. When pressed, the mini impact nailer begins a series of repeated blows that will drive the nail flush in a matter of seconds.
A well-known characteristic of all impact nailers is the propensity to become cold during constant use; however, the new Stanley-Bostitch mini impact nailer solves this problem by providing a rubber over-grip. This feature insulates the user’s hand and directs exhaust out of the front of the tool. By doing so, this simple solution reduces direct contact between the cold surface of the tool and the user’s palm.
The rubber over-grip also acts to dampen the tool’s vibration for added comfort and less fatigue. Additionally, a swivel fitting provides added maneuverability as the contractor navigates around beams and joists.
Paslode CS150 CapStapler Housewrap Stapling System
Patented button cap design protects against tearing and water damage.
After having spent months in the field observing contractors installing housing wrap, plastic sheathing and roof underlayment, Paslode is introducing the CapStapler Housewrap Stapling System, Model CS150. This system is designed to save contractors time and money.
“We’ve studied the application and all the systems in use today by contractors installing housing wrap, plastic sheathing and roofing felt,” said Pat Talano, product manager for Paslode. “Most are either manual stapling systems or bulky tools with low button cap capacity and cumbersome reloading designs that really slows contractors down. The new Paslode CapStapler Housewrap Stapling System is a real improvement, speeding up installation almost two fold over other systems on the market today.”
The CapStapler Housewrap Stapling System features a patented button cap design that protects against tearing and water damage.
The System includes the new Paslode pneumatic CapStapler, FasCap button cap reels and 18 gauge, 3/8” crown button cap staples available in 1” lengths. Professional contractors installing house wrap or roof felt will appreciate the CapStapler’s large capacity reel, which holds 240 FasCaps, and its open design that allows for quick reloading of staples (capacity 90).
The CapStaper features a best-in-class drive performance for day in day out use, an adjustable depth-of-drive, a quick-clear nose with easy access to the staples and an in-line magazine for greater balance and control. It also is a lightweight tool that will reduce user fatigue.
The CapStapler has a switchable trigger for single shot or bump fire, an adjustable exhaust cap, an adjustable belt hook and a switchable cap feed so that it can be used as a narrow crown stapler that will take staples from 3/4” to 1-1/2”.
