The Porter-Cable PIN100 pin nailer is perfect for producing intricate work. The pin produces a hole that is virtually undetectable. You can find the Porter-Cable PIN100 for an average price of $100. Let’s take a look at some of the features offered by this pin nailer.
The Porter-Cable PIN100 is equipped with a bottom-loading magazine that stores 23-gauge pin nails. The magazine can hold up to 170 nails at a time. Also, the Porter-Cable PIN100 can automatically adjust to accommodate nails of different lengths. The unit is designed to work with pin nails that measure between 1/2-inch and 1 inch. The tool also provides a visual reload indicator that will alert you whenever the nails in the magazine are getting too low and need to be reloaded.
The Porter-Cable PIN100 can work with virtually any sized air compressor. The tool features an operating pressure between 60 and 100 PSI, so the compressor you use must be capable of holding air at this range of pressure. If you need to drive pin nails at various depths, then you won’t like the fact that the Porter-Cable PIN100 doesn’t provide an adjustable depth setting.
This pin nailer features an ergonomic design for maximum comfort during use. Also, the Porter-Cable PIN100 is equipped with a rubber grip on the tool handle. In addition to providing more comfort, the rubber grip enables you to control the pin nailer better. You also have control over the operating mode of the Porter-Cable PIN100 thanks to the dual-trigger feature.
With most pin nailers you have to press down on the nose in order to release the firing safety. However, things are different with the Porter-Cable PIN100. Instead of pressing down on the nose, you have to squeeze the trigger safety with your finger. This will take some getting used to if you’re accustomed to working with other designs.
There are a range of useful accessories included with the Porter-Cable PIN100. You are provided with a 1/4″ air connector with a cap, wrenches, and carrying case. The Porter-Cable PIN100 also comes with tool oil so that you can keep the inside of the nailer properly lubricated. The unit also comes packaged with a box of 2000 3/4-inch pin nails.
