Focus on Fasteners and Fastening Tools: Finish nailer
March 1, 2006
Duo-FastThe SureShot 764 16-gauge 2-inch finish nailer is a light-weight, compact tool designed for high-volume, industrial applications such as cabinetmaking, woodworking and millwork. The tool is smaller and lighter than other 21⁄2-inch finish nailers, making it a comfortable and maneuverable tool for numerous industrial applications that require up to 2-inch nails. It weighs 3.3 pounds, has an overall height of only 91⁄4 inches and drives the company's 700 series 16-gauge finish nails in varying lengths from 3/4 to 2 inch. The tool features a depth-of-drive adjustment that provides for precise control of nail setting depth in hard or soft wood, a no-mar tip that minimizes the chance of damaging expensive wood and trim, and a last-nail lockout to prevent blank firing. It also features a quick-clear nose that clears jams quickly, without any tools, should a nail jam occur.
