No both the NR83 and NR90 have paper and plastic versions. The NR90 is a lighter duty gun, cheaper, used to be made in China when the 83 was Japan.

Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


The 83 and 90 have different heads and driving mechanisms. The 83 is the heavy duty version that can handle sand and debris in the head better.

The 90 has a multi valve head with a bunch of springs. Light and compact, but will not handle debris well.

I have a MAX short head which is being rebuilt right now and likely one of the valves is hung up.

My 83S rarely have that issue.

Or ring shank nails. I have a nail head busted off and jammed between the drive pin and the carrier. Going to be fun to get that out. I guess most (or any) guns donít like ring shanks longer than 2-3/8Ē though.

FYI I like to use 3” RS on interior bottom plates (studs to plate and plate to floor) to minimize squeaks.

I have luck with a punch as close to the same size as the pin. We've actually has them fuse together when running sheathing.

That's a pain. I usually drive the driving pin back down with a large nail set or larger nail/rod.

Already tried that, this nail head must be extra thick or heavily burred. I’ll get it eventually just haven’t had time.

I could have used that a few days ago. Fitting paper raised panel doors to replace original flush hollow cores...

I made a Frankenstein jig for the router. It worked for the moment...

Thats all I'm looking for in a tool!

I like how this kit has all the extras for doing the latches and strikes. For not even $40, well worth it, especially since it came with the centering drill bit

I have the Ryobi one, but that only does the door side of the hinge, not the jamb side.

This one is a nice template set. You can set it and do the door and frame. If I see one at a good deal I would get it.

Or if I had a bunch of doors to do..but one or two at a time is not that high of a priority.

I just screwed together a few 1x4 s, two in a T. Two spaced an 1-1/2" from the edge of the hinge top and bottom. 3/4 x3/4" cut-off made the door depth stop.

Set the depth of the bit.

Ran the router, cuts the top edge of the T. Ensure that the hinge fits. Adjust as required. I happened not to for this instance. The cut lines up to your hing mark. Clamp it with a large c- clamp route. Repeat at each hinge.

Then modified the jig for the latch plate.

Door jams had top and bottom hinges already. Just had to locate the middle hinges, and two of the doors needed strike plates. All of which I did by hand.

Until the next time....

These come up on CL/ ebay pretty regularly. The bummer is that they've usually lost a part or two and replacements are either crazy $$$ or unavailable. I ended up buying 3 and making two complete kits... sold one and made my net cost almost nothing.

It's really nice to have at least 4 of the templates so that when you've assembled the usual 3, you've got a loose one to set router depth with. (Or, I suppose you could be brilliant and set the depth before, but let's not get crazy or nothing...)

Was able to do the entire house of these very wet, heavy leaves the other day on full power. Started dying right at the end Couldnít be happier with it.
