Re: Cadex Pinner


generally, I think they are really good.

though I think something is wrong with mine I've had it for 1.5 years never a jam, but on the last job it jammed multiple times.

well, if you stop buying the HF ones and step up to the top shelf, you can get a blower.

45 guns, my god. how many duplicates? there isn't that many different kinds of guns out there. at this point. I think we can expect to see some pictures of RIZ and his guns. maybe there are some we haven't seen yet. but i doubt that.

Plenty of dupes. I wasn't always the "Lone" framer.
There's a few missing from this pic, but pretty close to all of them.

Yeah, all the framing guns were bought when I had a full crew.

Started with Paslode pneumatic framers, switched to Hitachi full round head in the late '90s/early '00s. Went back to Paslode with a switch to a different GC that was using all Paslode, then bought the Impulse guns. Trim guns and staplers are different sizes/gauges, crown widths, maximum fastener lengths, angled/straight, etc. 25 years of runnin' and gunnin'.
