A few months ago Porter Cable came out with a new maintenance-free pin nailer, the PIN138. Pin nailers are designed to offer holding power with minimal fastener visibility, and the PIN138 is no different. With a maintenance-free long-life motor, the PIN138 requires no occasional oiling.
The PIN38 can drive 23 gauge pins 5/8″ to 1-3/8″ long. Users can choose between headless pin nails or slight head pin nails for greater holding power. There’s also a dry-fire lock-out, 130 pin magazine, automatic fastener length adjustment, low nail indicator, rear exhaust, narrow nose for improved visibility, and a removable non-marring tip.
To sum it up, the PIN138 is a lightweight headless or slight head pin nailer that is maintenance-free for reduced oil contamination on finished work surfaces.
MSRP is $149, and street price is about $140.
