Bostitch F33PT 33-Degree Paper Tape Framing Nailer / Metal Connector Nailer Review

The nailer works perfectly on many different projects, whether simple or rugged. The interchangeable tip makes it the perfect option and you will never need another nail gun. However, confidence is needed to drive the nails in as there is a recoil to the powerful air compressor.

The power is excellent and cannot compare with many other models. The Bostitch F33PT drives framing nails into anything, including double LVL. It is very easy to chance the nail depth to get the perfect and predictable outcome every single time. This is something everyone wants when it comes to nailing products.

The main downside is that the Bostitch F33PT framing nailer uses 33-degree nails. This is a problem for some parts of the world, where building standards require 21-degree. This will mean that this nailgun isn’t quite what you need but it is perfect for personal projects, whether that is your fence, your dog house or even a shed.

There is no issue with a part of the Bostitch nailer going missing. Unlike many other models, there is no spring at the front, which usually bounces off. This is something that previous Bostitch models suffered from and led to searching for new parts or a whole new nail gun! It’s great to see that they have changed this factor.

The Bostitch framing nail gun also comes with a seven year warranty. This is more than many other nailers out there so offers more of a peace of mind that it will deliver as promised. Should the mechanics stop working within that seven year period, you will be able to get a replacement without having a spend a lot of money on it or a new one.

Something that some customers have found is that the spikes don’t stay very sharp for long. Another issue is that the head falls off regularly, which can make a DIY project harder to complete. The good news is that the latter comes under the warranty and seems to be a fault with a part.

A Final Note About the Bostitch F33PT 33-Degree Paper Tape Framing Nailer / Metal Connector Nailer

 

In closing, the Bostitch F33PT is a great nail gun for those with 33-degree nails. It is lightweight, at just eight pounds, and comes with an amazing seven year warranty. It works on the majority of projects thanks to the powerful air compressor. One of the best factors is that the tips are interchangeable and it works for different types of nails. This is perfect for the many different types of projects that you may have happening.

There are mixed customer reviews but the simple truth is that you can’t please everyone. Those who had left negative reviews seem to have had a faulty product and have lost faith due to that. There are many more who have left positive ratings and declare that it is definitely a nail gun worth investing in.

However, for those who need to meet certain regulations, this may not be the one to buy. This is for 33-degree nails; most building regulations state 21-degree nails are a requirement. Think about your project but if not regulations are involved, you will definitely benefit.
