I was recently asked to write a few articles about a tool brand I knew about but had never tried - Ridgid. Top quality, but relatively expensive, I had never had the reason to use them. Forced to try at least a couple of different tools, I came away saying, yes, expensive but top quality! Without exception, every tool we tried worked well, according to the claims made by the manufacturer.
One of the tools we tried was the Ridgid palm nailer that is capable of driving something like 5 lbs of quite hefty coated sinkers at 55 psi without any problem at all. The machine has an adjustable depth setting that works beautifully and it really doesn't do much to the air consumption. This particular nailer also works really well with smaller nails to. It's a little tool and doesn't cost much (relatively speaking) either.
Basically the R350PNA Ridgid palm nailer can drive 3-1/2" nails into the toughest and hardest woods. The tool also has a magnetic nail guide that you can use to hold the nails you are knocking in securely in place while you work.
There is a self-cleaning air filter that is built into the machine that keeps muck and dust out of the working parts, thus ensuring that these tools will last for a longer period of time. The machine also has an adjustable hand strap that has been fitted so that both right and left handed people can use it. The main body of the machine is made of aluminum. That means that you can be sure it will last for a lot longer than many other tools and machines.
But let's get back to that nailer we were talking about.
The specifications of the R350PNA Ridgid palm nailer machine state that it will fasten "bulk nails" within a range of 4d to 16d. The fastener length that is specified is from 1
