Most of us who use pneumatic nailers are partial to one brand or another, and if Paslode isn’t usually your choice, we think you owe it to yourself to have a look at this brad nailer.

We’ll get out of the way the only thing we don’t like: depth-of-drive isn’t tool-free. Aside from that relatively small thing, this is one fantastic nailer. It’s the lightest we’ve ever had in hand, and while that may not seem like such an important thing, it will be if you’re working overhead for extended periods.

Probably its most outstanding feature is an unusually streamlined nose architecture that fits neatly into spots the other brands can’t reach and guarantees your fastener drives exactly where you want it to.

Of course, this Paslode has all the things you expect from any nailer: a non-marring tip, directional exhaust to keep debris away from your face and a nice fastener length range, from 5/8 to 2-inch brads.

If you’ve already got a 16-gauge, you may not feel the need for the smaller gun, but we’ll just say that its delicate touch is all we’d want when working with cove, shoe, base and quarter-round moldings, stair spindles, outside crown corners, paneling, and any sort of decorative trim.--Kris Jensen-Van Heste

The Paslode 500959 is the third 18 Guage nailer I have owned, and has been the best up to this point. For several years I have used central pneumatic and porter cable 18 gauge nailers without major complaints, but thought I would give paslode products a try by purchasing one on of their least expensive models. The paslode is much lighter than the PC & CP (2.2lbs to 2.8lbs & 2.9lbs on my balance. 0.6lbs - 0.7lbs doesn't sound like a big differnce, but becomes very apparent when using the tool for extended periods of time.
Although very light, I found the paslode just as powerful as its heavier brothers. I had no trouble driving 2 inch brads into some 1 inch thick oak face frames I was working with recently.
The paslode's nose geometry is also great. Even with its rubber tip attached, it will fit into tight spots a bit easier than the porter cable or the central pneumatic. This nailer (like the PC & CP)has its safety guard located behind the nose. This is actually the feature I always check first when looking at finish nailers. A few common models have their guard in front of the nose. The first finish nailer I ever used (borrowed) was set up with the guard in front, and it found it much harder to position the nose for toe nailing and other tight space tasks.
I would guess I have driven 2500-3000 nails with the paslode, and thus far it has yet to jam. I am sure it will eventually, and was happy to see that it uses a spring loaded latch (just like the PC) to remove jams. This is much easier to use than the series of hex screws that must be removed to clear jams on many finish nailers.
The depth of drive adjustment on the paslode is similiar to most nailers that offer this option. It's a thumbwheel located behind the trigger, and works well.

I bought this nailer a couple weeks ago and have put it to some use in that time. Although I was disappointed, to say the least, to see that it is actually made in Taiwan rather than USA like Amazon states, it is still a good tool. Mostly made of plastic and aluminum, it is very light weight and appears to be able to hold up to the light duty use I will be putting it to. I have shot various sizes of brads, of various brands, and haven't had any jams or problems. The air I supply to the gun is around 80psi and I've shot brads into very hard, very dense hardwoods, and very soft woods as well without a problem at this pressure. I figure it's best to use the lowest pressure you can as it saves wear and tear on both nailer and compressor. I've deliberately shot nails into knots (even though this should be avoided) and they have all gone in without a problem - 5/8" to 2" brads. The tool is very easy to use and comes with a case which is nice. For the price this brad nailer is in the top end of its class in my opinion - especially since all the others are also made in Taiwan. I'm confident it will give me years of good service if used and maintained properly.

I just picked up one of these to use in my trim carpentry business. It did not impress me at all.

Pros,
It is plastic so it is very light.

Cons,
It is plastic, so I have to question the longevity.

Since it is so light, it has a descent kick when you fire it. also quite a bit louder than my other guns. I could stomach these "flaws" if it worked well. But it didn't in my case. What would happen is when firing a nail, the driver would shoot over the top of the nail about 1/4 of the time. So the nail would sit proud of the surface and you would also see where the driver would hit the wood above the nail, basically leaving 2 holes, and the nail itself not sinking. When I would use it to nail casings to the wall, if I shoot 8 nails, 3 would need to be sunk with a nail set. This was standard (7/16" x 2-1/2") casing through 1/2" rock in to the framing. So absolutely nothing that should hinder the nails setting. This is completely unacceptable, especially when your lively hood depends on time (having to go back and set the nails) and leaving as small of a hole as possible.

So, maybe I got a dud, but I can't recommend this to anyone else.

This nailer takes the widest range of brads of any of the brad nailers. The adjustable exhaust port lets you aim the exhaust away from yourself. The indicator marks on the nailer head makes it easy to accurately line up the nailer. It uses so little air that you can use the smallest of air compresors. The depth adjustment makes it fairly easy to drive your brads to the desired depth. My only complaint is the markings on the depth adjustment could be more visible.

I've been using my Paslode Brad Nailer for almost a year, and it has performed like a champ. I did a lot of on-line research before making my purchase, and the Paslode was at (or near) the top of most recommendations.
The weight, size, balance in my hand and function are all excellent for this nailer.
It took a bit of hands-on trial-and-error to learn the techniques for setting the depth of the brad into the particular wood.
I'm an amateur woodworker; a hobbyist. I bought the Paslode nailer for a particular project. At that time, I didn't realize how much I would be using it.
