The holidays are approaching, so it’s time to start thinking about gift ideas. Whether it’s a tool upgrade or something you’ve never had before (but always wanted), starting the new year with some new equipment will make work more fun and hopefully help you get the job done more efficiently.
What are the top items every contractor wants to see under the tree? It’s no surprise that the most popular wish list items are tools that make the job quicker and easier, and right now pneumatic tools are blowing away the competition.
Air tools, or pneumatics, are lightweight and versatile. They can significantly reduce the time spent on each job site, giving you an advantage over your competition. They are less costly to buy and maintain. And, they are safer all around for the user. No matter the project, there's an air driven tool perfectly suited to the job at hand. And when used with combination fastener products, the lasting result is a gift your customers will appreciate.
Adding these pneumatic tools to your wish list will make your work a breeze:
Bradders and Pinners: The brad nailer is typically used for smaller wood projects, upholstery, and other precision work. They are commonly available in models that will insert sizes ranging from 15-gauge to 23-gauge pins or brads.
Staplers: There are many different options to suit your needs. Depending on the model, air staplers can use anything from fine wire to heavy duty staples, making projects go quickly while being easier on your hands and arms than standard manual models. The pneumatic options in staplers can be great for a wide variety of applications, especially when you are working far from the main building.
Strip Nailers: Framing nailers are typically referred to as "nail guns" and use fasteners mounted in long strips (similar to a stick of staples) or collated in a paper or plastic carrier, depending on the design of the gun. These tools can quickly install strips of fasteners in a wide range of sizes and angles for use in nearly any construction project.
Coil Nailers: The coil nail gun is a small compact tool, making it easy to work with. The size also makes it portable. Coil guns are typically designed for collated nails or combination fasteners. Higher grade models are built with an ergonomic design to reduce shock when firing the tool.
SCRAILers: BECK is a family business founded in 1904 and has been one of the world’s leading companies in fastening technology. Their products are available in a range of styles and sizes to install their branded SCRAIL® fasteners.
Obviously, we’re fans of pneumatic tools. They’re lightweight, fast, accurate, and they help save both time and money. Using quality tools and fasteners, like the full line offered by BECK America, shows that quality work is important to you. So, whether you’ve been naughty or nice, make sure to add one to your wish list this holiday.
