Back in February we told you about Porter Cable’s 20V Max cordless brad nailer and stapler, and that a a straight finish nailer, model PCC792, is on the way. Well, it’s just about here, as listings for the new nailer just appeared on Amazon.
The new Porter Cable 16 gauge cordless finish nailer is completely electric, and requires no fuel cells to operate. You probably knew that, but it seemed a reminder couldn’t hurt.
It can work with nails 1″ to 2-1/2″ long, and has a 100 nail magazine.
Porter Cable boasts that the nailer can deliver consistent driving power into various materials, such as baseboard, crown moldings, and cabinet assemblies.
Features include multiple tool-free settings, and multi-functional dual LED lights that provide workspace illumination and also serve as error indicators. PC says that the nailer’s lightweight design and optimal center of gravity provide for user comfort, and allow the nailer to be used in multiple positions.
Street Price: $240 for the kit (another vendor has it for $280), $200 for the bare tool
Amazon’s bare tool price doesn’t seem right, as it’s listed as being more expensive than the kit, but Acme’s looks to more closely match MSRP.
If you have used either of Porter Cable’s cordless nailers yet, what do you think about them? Would you be inclined to give this new 16 ga straight finish nailer a try?
