OK this sucks.
Dropped off the nail gun at the service center. They called me up Mon. and said they have another one for me because it's so new there are no parts in stock, so I went up there and picked it up.
Today I go to use it to nail on some brickmold and the same thing all over again on the new one they gave me.

Working around the corner from the service center tomorrow. Guy should be glad to see me again

So what do you think of the tool so far? Is it working with the razor blade? Would you buy it again?
Thanks!

For the one wall it was great. On the other wall was 2 layers of fire rated. Hitting tones of screws breaking tones of razor blades (A wall I just built and the plumbers cut up for no reason). But was a elevator room so need the dust control. Glad I didn't use the expensive blades . Just going to cut at the stud edges next time, then just add blocking.
Going to need some more time with it.

It works until you hit a screw.
I'm going to need some more time with it.
Tomorrow I'll be cutting a ceiling so hopefully that goes better with no screws in the way. Ill have a verdict by tomorrow night

Re: Makita Does It Again


Used it on the ceiling with the drywall blade works great. Cuts dust and the mess down a great deal. I've been in renovations since a teenage, too many years its been dust mess and drywall in my pocket. almost had tears of joy using it lol.

If you do a decent amount of drywall demo its worth it. This saves the vapor barrier from getting cut up and worth every penny in time saved.

I'd recommend trying the Tajima blades out, I've had the same pieces of blade in the saw since I first put them in. They are really hard to snap off when using them in a knife, and they are also really flexible which I think aids in them not breaking when I hit screws. I actually think they cut a little better as the cutting edge gets chipped up. As for cleanliness, nothing I've ever used for cutting drywall compares to this thing with a dust extractor hooked up. I'm hesitant to say it gets 100% of the dust, but its pretty damn close.

Re: Makita Does It Again


Got a replacement for my 16ga nail gun yesterday.
Test fired about a dozen shots at the service center. 2 1/2" into yellow pine 2x4.
Every one right in and countersunk.

I have half a dozen interior doors to put in tomorrow so I will give it a work out.


Still every time I hit "Upload" to post a picture I get "Failed" message.

Honestly I can't imagine trying to drill a hole with what you linked above. I have used it for earthquake retrofitting and tying concrete together.

I was being a taking your words literally, as I have no idea what "machine/tool" you are discussing. You linked to epoxy and said "You attempted to drill a hole with it", for which the epoxy won't drill very well. Sorry for my failed attempt at humor.
