Nail Guns Pose Unexpected Injury Risk

Nail Guns: The Power and the Pain

Tool manufacturer Dewalt is recalling thousands of framing nail guns that could unexpectedly eject nails, putting users and bystanders at risk of serious injury. Dewalt Industrial Tool Co. http://framingnailgunreviews.com/cordless-electric-palm-nailer-works-in-tight-areas-2/ and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission are recalling about 9,000 DEWALT D51825 and D51850 Framing Nailers after the company discovered that the bump action trigger on the nailers may have been assembled incorrectly during production. In addition, the trigger lock-off meant to disable the trigger when its not in use may not work at all, the CPSC says. No injuries have been reported at this time. The recall includes $280 Clipped Head Framing Nailers with a date code range of 20080249 to 20082749 and Full Round Head Framing Nailers with date codes between 20080249 and 20082749.

Nail guns drive both long and short nails into wood, even dense oak, in a fraction of a second with a single blow. Driving a regular nail with a hammer is also dangerous. On more than one occasion, I have been hit in the face with a regular nail that ricocheted off wood when it was struck unevenly by a regular hammer.

Bend man accused of shooting dog with nail gun

To be free of the heavy compressor, the hoses, the noise that was really liberating. I could have 50 nails shot or more with that gun long before you would have my old Senco up and running. The impluse gun just needed its battery charged each night. It always had enough power to operate all day long. You can get electric-powered nail guns, but the only ones Ive seen in use are finish nailers. Something tells me it will take a significant advancement in technology to have a cordless battery-powered framing nail gun.
