Senco offers lightweight nailer

Senco’s new FinishPro 18BMg 18-gauge brad nailer is loaded with features to handle tough fastening tasks while ensuring comfort and reliability. It accepts 5/8” to 2-1/2” fasteners and the tool’s composite magazine can accommodate up to 100 nails.

The tool weighs only 2.8 lbs. and is well-balanced with the main body constructed from lightweight magnesium, product manager Eric Bellman says.

“It’s brand-new and we launched it earlier this year to Home Depot and we’re getting ready to release it to other market channels shortly. It’s great for woodworkers because of its weight and size. It’s loaded with user-friendly features such as the LED light and selectable trigger for bounce or sequential nailing,” Bellman says.

The selectable trigger switch lets the user select bump fire action for quick nailing when precise placement is not required. With a simple flip of the switch, the user transitions to sequential fire.

“The trigger selection is not common for these types of tools. It gives users the ability to work at their own preference. They may not necessarily be going for speed if they go to bump fire but it gives them the ability to increase their speed if they need to or want to,” Bellman adds.

A nose-mounted LED light allows for exact placement in dark areas and the reload indicator reduces the potential of dry firing.

The oil-free motor makes the tool virtually maintenance free and eliminates the potential of oil leaking onto the workpiece. It also features a 360-degree adjustable exhaust port, thumbwheel depth, no-mar tip, swivel air inlet and rotatable belt hook.

The tool sells for about $80 with a five-year warranty and carrying case.
