Bostitch Brad Nailer
What is a Bostitch Brad Nailer?
A brad nailer is a smaller version of a finish nailer and is typically used for attaching small moldings and trim to a woodworking project. Because brads are thinner than finish nails, they can often be used in an instant where a typical finish nailer might split the piece of trim that the nail is being driven through.
Bostitch Brad Nailers are both lightweight and durable with easy maintenance. It is quiet and easy to maneuver so even the smallest projects are simple.
What is a Brad?
Brads are made from 18-gauge wire, which is considerably thinner than the common 15 and 16-gauge nails for pneumatic or battery powered finished nailers. Brads also have a very thin head allowing for little to no wood filler.
