This seems like a good deal given it can use brad nails up to 32mm long and staples up to 25mm. which I don't think you normally get at this price. Also an assorted 3000 staple / nail kit is only £2.49 as well.

Interesting to note that they don't list it as having the usual 3 year warranty as they normally do on their power tools.

PARKSIDE Electric Nailer/Stapler £16.99

With adjustable strike capability, flush nose design for working on narrow items or close to edges and convenient one handed operation
Fires up to 30 nails/staples per minute, max. impact rate (bpm): 30
500 staples, 500 nails and hex key included
Suitable for:
- Staple size (mm): 15 - 25

29th and arrive early.

I got 1 of these last year. They are good but are prone to jamming.

Thanks everyone. Hope I can get one now.

Will this be suitable for fitting architrave around doors?

My expectations are that it would be fine on softwood, if supplemented with heavy-duty mastic glue - clart the back of the wood with "no-nails" or "gripfill" present it to the door opening and hold in place with brad nails until the glue has a chance to set - with any luck the nailer will propel the pins with sufficient force to fire them below the surface of the wood, otherwise a single smack with a flat faced hammer absolutely "square on" should drive the pin home, and the wood bounce back (if you leave a ring, put some cold water on it and the wood should swell flat)

MDF might be a different matter as it’s harder.

Thanks for the info.

Really dont bother they jam, really frustrating to use !!!!

What's wrong with using a nail punch?

Phil, if you go in 10 mins before store closing you can usually buy them night before as they switch the stock over ready for next day, well they do at my Lidl anyway

If I had a hammer...... La la laa

I have one and it does jam, but not that often. I fitted a plastic roof and sides to the rabbit run a few weeks back and it jammed once in about 200 staples.

they do at mine too but now have stoped selling items if they go on sale the next day.

BTW, dont ALL nail guns jam?
I'd like one but i dont really need one.

Looking at it, how can you get close to edges as the 'head' of the gun seems quite big?

got one last year, built a gate, a fence and also re-cladded my shed, has probably jammed twice in total. easy to remove jammed nails with pliers. imo a good bit of kit.
mine does state 3 year warranty on the box by the way.

This is a ridiculously low price, cheapest 35mm Nailer on Toolstation = £54, Screwfix = £85 (Tacwise)

I need to construct a fence (featheredge) and clad a shed (possibly log lap), will 32mm nails be sufficient? Might just get one anyway.

tek-monkey - would you say this is powerfull enough to fit Scotia (beading) for laminate floor.

I'm planning on getting one to fix the featheredge boards to my fence and I think 32mm should be fine. Not sure about your other uses though.

Does anyone one know whether the staples can be used to tack phone cable in place?

Thanks Bob. Will be getting one and maybe one of they 18v Impact Drivers too

You really need to use ring shank nails for fixing down feather edge boards. Ordinary nails will just pull loose as the wood swells, contracts and twists.

So, the question is can you get 32mm ringshanks that will fit this device?

As site blurb says : . . .Suitable for: - Staple size (mm): 15 - 25
If that range was used for normal phone cables, it would a) look horrendous.
b) think the pressure on staples would most definitely damage the cable. Anything that can bang a 32mm nail into wood would cause massive damage to cable.
Best to buy much smaller hand stapler. You see them on this site occasionally, for under a tenner.

This has variable strength doesn't it? Mine has, but I always use it on full!

Totally ludicrous comparison.

I doubt it. The brads for this type of nail gun tend to be quite thin so suspect ringshanks would be too thick/substantial to fit this nailer. The nailer could come in useful to temporarily pin the freatheredge in position and then nail properly......

What about if you put a bit of an angle on the nail as that should make it more difficult for the boards to pull loose?

Is it easy to get nails for these things, I know they have a pack for 2.49 but once they are gone where am I likel to get them from? P>S. Dont know what I will use it for yet but getting one anyway

They crop up at least once a year in lidl, so grab a few now. Pretty sure I found some at screwfix that worked fine though.

Dunno about others but I only tend to use the staples, hardly ever used the nails.

Do these take any type staples/nails or need a special cartridge? 15mm - 25mm is that depth? I'm needing a stapler to put up foil insulation on the joists in the loft, would prob only need 5-6mm deep..would this gun be any good?

They take staples specific for nail/staple guns which you should be able to get at screwfix/toolstation although no one has confirmed 100% yet which ones fit. You could always buy the assorted kit that should be on sale at the same time. And yes that is the depth of the staple.
I think this would be OK for stapling insulation in place.

Thanks for the info!

I wouldn't use it to tack phone cables, it'll probably damage it. We had a special one where I used to work, which was a hand one and used special staples with a plastic covering so as not to damage the cable. It wasn't cheap as I recall, depends on how many cables you need to fix as to if it's worth buying one.

Got one late afternoon on day of sale. Got to say, not very powerful. Even on highest setting would not fully fire nail through MDF door architrave. However, it will come in handy for outdoor work with softer woods. Also the head really does make impact marks on the wood, so not great for finishing work on internals.
