I have that glue gun (bought mine when it was still PamTite). Very nice gun, but it is not the best thing for trim work. The glue has to much body to allow for tight joints. We use it for making templates with drywall shim and tacking on drawer faces. It great for that odd piece of tile also.

If youre looking for something that is closer to CA glue and "white glues", you'll want HyPur.

Hopefully Justin sees this, I believe he now uses a commercial air powered HyPur gun for all his trim pre-assembles.

As Tom said its not designed for trim use except for holding supports for preassembled crown

Think of it as a fast drying adhesive like PL

Yep. We do it right away. Only use 8 penny nails to tack. We have done it this way for as long as we have been in business. Used a Senco gun for years. Just got the PamFast by Fastenmaster. I was a little hesitant because of their proprietary screws and bits but they do not strip or break so I think it is worth it. We have 3100 square ft of Advantech to install next month so this setup will get a workout.

It's by PamFast but Fastenmaster bought them from my understanding. Quick drive is a different brand.

Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


And you screw all of this extra plywood down for tile? Is this correct?

I think you told me no one does mud floors in your area.
Is this correct?

My OCD kick in

We do in a remodel situation if it needs it. We also screw our subflooring down as we frame in new construction. No we don't do any mud floors in my area.

Old school tile base. Dry pack over lath and tar paper. No doubt it gives a flat floor.

Ditra uncouples but of course does nothing for flatness so additional preparation steps are needed

Not special for the PamFast. It is Dewalts screwgun made for metal fastening according to their site. It just happens to work with the extension. I do not think the drywall guns would work..to fast on the rpms and not enough torque.

Last time the rep at the lumber yard was demonstrating the Pamtite gun they were using a Milwaukee. I think they were even throwing it in the deal.

I know a couple framers that got them for free when got a big amount of screws..
A larger outfit got all senco nailers and screw guns for free as long as they got the ammo from senco.. but they spent probably 100k in fasteners a year haha.
