I have the bostitch, total POS. I also have a Senco, itís a little better. Paslodes are good.. A guy I worked for had a few and they always worked good.

Re: TBA Meeting (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


I hve two of the Bostitch 651S5 models. Both have the same issue where the firing pins won't retract consistently, and then intermittent firing when they do. Probably bad O rings.

Re: TBA Meeting (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


So, this just arrived for me when I got home. It's heavy, and I like that. I just rapid fired 1 3/4" staples into solid pine at 100 psi, no trouble at all.

Has rafter hook and swivel air nozzle.

The adjustable tip will easily be modified for hanging siding.

The staple clear out completely folds out of the way for easy clearing of jammed staples.

This is superior in design to the Bostitch models I have.

I think I am gonna like this one.

Bought a mud monster. It mixes full buckets of mortar, etc in under 3 minutes according to the box.

Hopefully bucket mixing is going to be faster and more consistent with it. $50, I'll see if I like it.

Does that shoot the Senco or the Paslode staples? I am looking as well. Still have one 20 year old Hitachi that still fires, as well as several newer Senco's that disappoint constantly. Years ago, I liked the Paslodes, but always found that they shot so well when new, but within a year or two they never seemed to work well.

Whatís your issue with the new Senco? Not fully setting staples?

Yep. That, and one of mine sets 2 or 3, then leaves one about halfway driven in. I think the driver might be bent. I think I have bought a new Senco every year for the last 3 or 4 years.

7/16"w x 1-2" length, 16 gauge. The make of staple shouldn't be much an issue in my experience.

Posted right above. They hsd one in stock at my local masonry supply. I asked the counter guy about it, and he said some people love them and some hate them.

Anyone claiming a 30 sec mix time on some products has my attention.

That is the same as the Senco. That helps me make the decision to buy one of those. At least that way, I can still use the same staples in my current guns.
