Bostitch Framing Nailers
BOSTITCH® framing nailers come in coil and strip styles, which refers to how the nails are arranged or stored. Coil-style devices feature round storage magazines and long strings of nails. Strip-style models feature oblong magazines and nails arranged on wire, plastic or paper strips. Some nailers work well for heavy-duty applications, such as framing for housing or building additions onto a structure. Other Bostitch cordless framing nailers work well for small tasks in confined spaces.
Like with Bostitch roofing nailers and flooring nailers, many of the options from this manufacturer drive nails using air. The pneumatic design makes them capable of heavy-duty tasks like building decks. Some Bostitch framing nailers use battery power as well; while they are not as strong as pneumatic models, those that use batteries offer increased mobility.
Each type of Bostitch framing nailer has a particular purpose. Some feature the pressure necessary for driving fasteners into concrete, while others are designed for use with engineered lumber, drywall or roof sheathing. They each drive different kinds of nails as well; some work best with plastic inserted nails, while others drive wire weld collated fasteners quickly and easily.
Many Bostitch paper tape framing nailers and coil-style options feature light weight aluminum bodies; this helps ensure the durability of the tools, but also makes their use more comfortable over long periods of time. Like with any Bostitch specialty nailers, the size of the tool you choose is important to its use. Some feature low profiles that make getting between tight framing studs a simple task.
In addition to size, purpose and style, many Bostitch framing nailers have unique qualities such as quick-change nosepieces and adjustable depth guides. Some offer adjustable rafter hooks that let you hang the tool on a joist or rafter when not in use.
Whether you're driving fasteners into wood, concrete or metal, there is a Bostitch framing nailer for the job. Check out these as well as Bostitch flooring nailers, roofing nailers and specialty nail guns before you start your next project.
