Brad nailers drive small fasteners called brads into wood. Brads have very small heads or are completely straight, which keeps them nearly invisible on finish projects. Use brad nailers instead of finish nailers when you need to make sure that your soft wood doesn't split when you drive into it.
Pneumatic nailers use compressed air to shoot nails into wood. The drawback is that you need to keep them attached to an air hose to work. Cordless brad nailers use battery power for portable performance. Cordless models require you have a battery, charger and spare to swap out when you run low. Pneumatic nailers run on gas-powered compressors when you work on sites without electrical power. For convenience, you can get a battery and charger in a brad nailer kit so select models based on your specific power needs.
For the softest wood, use a pin nailer to prevent splits. Variable depth models help to ensure that you get a flush drive every time. This helps you avoid using a hammer to complete the drive and potentially damage the wood with a missed strike or from using putty to fill in a deep hole. Bump fire modes let you work quickly, since you only need to tap the nailer's muzzle against the wood to drive a brad. Just make sure that you watch where you nail to avoid misses or accidents. For comfort, get a nailer with an ergonomic handle to avoid strain and fatigue.
Brad nailers add convenience to your finish work. They're fast and easier on finish than a hammer. Check out our complete selection of brad nailers and their various features to determine which nailer best fits your project requirements.
