No experience with that one but it seems awesome honestly. I use a grex 2 3/8 headless pinned for all my trim and absolutrly love grex. If they came out with a cordless micro pinned Id get it in a second!
Only thing I use a headed nail for is stuff with a tongue and groove that I can hide the nail shots. Otherwise the headless pins crossed over each other with some adhesive on the back of the trim has been really great for me. Granted if something is a little fucky and you need to suck the piece to a bad spot in the wall then something with a head is much better.
Like the Grex pinners, good service as well but I already invested in a few cordless nailers that share batteries. Cordless are great for certain applications but I go through the hassle of hoses and the compressor for my cadex 18 g. Great gun, no slop and tight firing when precision is required.
With the 18g cordless i use, the head must be depressed fully to engage the fuel cell to fire. Now imagine your holding two freshly glued edges together, you have them lined up perfectly and then you have to push the gun against the wet piece without any slip...not fun. Maybe someone who uses the grex can speak to the sensitively of the nailer head.
Cordless has its advantages and disadvantages. Disadvantages would be size,weight and safety sensitivity. This Pinner seems to address two of those problems, size and weight. Other cordless I've had In the past are huge in comparison and difficult if not impossible to service yourself. I think I'm gonna pull the trigger, so to speak.
As for case pinners, I've only just heard of these guys. Tell me more
Given up on cordless nailer/pinners, they're great for convenience but just don't have the service life or reliability that I need so I'm strictly pneumatic now, got guns that are 15 years old still going strong, if you need portability and convenience have you tried the small compressed air canisters you just hook to your belt and use a short hose, not used one for a while but they work great cost just a few £££ to refill, last longer than small gas canisters from memory 1200 pins not sure but think somebody's makes one now that you can fill from your compressor?
I had given up on cordless as well but this looks to be a solid machine. There's loads of times in my I industry where running hose is a problem, on set for instance, and cordless is a real benefit. This grex is all metal and fully serviceable so my interest is high. I'd go snag it today, being my one day off, but my local dealer is closed on Sundays. So much for the modern world.
The canister I had was about the size of 1 1/2 coke cans had a small regulator on top, used a really small diameter hose as I used it for 18 & 23 gauge only, seemed to last forever, refill was about £8 from memory, if you google the subject loads of people have come up with quite inventive solutions to the problem, surprised nobody's come up with a hoseless gun with a high pressure tank and gauge that you periodically take some place to be re-pressurised.... Now that's something I'd buy.
That grex does look sweet though, like the fact you can take it apart and service it yourself, nearly bought the senco fusion 23g recently but the thing that put me off was the fact you have to send it away to have the canister repressurised, I have the grex 2" 23 gauge and it's built to last, the cadex is as good though, they're probably the 2 premium brands in 23 gauge pinners that you can get in Europe, the grex is made in Taiwan, think the cadex is too, same factory I think, what's the gas prices on the grex? After all I've said I'll probably end up getting one....
abdon: I stand corrected , the angle fence is only attaches with F -Tracks , what confused me was , that the Timberwolf site mentioned it will work with the NFU machine, yes it will work but only I guess when you use the Ftrack , with other tracks Like the KSS L.

glynnco: Did you order from GereedschapPro? I see them as in stock but I'm located in the US and am not sure if they ship here. I sent them an email asking about shipping but it was returned undeliverable...

jonathan: I've purchased a lot of stuff from our neighbours @ GereedschapPro.nl As far as I know they are one of the larger Mafell dealers in the EU. I can recommend them, they usually respond quickly.

lasse: Thanks for the tip! I have own a mafell rail which is 160 cm and one that is 80 cm. Will it work just as well or will I need to buy rail that is 110 cm?
