Bostitch FN1664K Review
Thanks to the oil free operation of the Bostitch FN1664K 16GA Straight Finish Nailer, the work area is kept clean and free from staining and also reduces the need for maintenance and improves the durability of the motor.
The dual trigger makes changing from repeat to single nailing quick and easy and gives fuller control of the finish, ideal for more delicate or difficult to access areas.
The simple to use tool free depth control, Dial-A-Depth™ ensures accurate countersinking, while the low fastener lockout, prevents marring the wood due to dry firing, the nailer automatically stops once the magazine reaches the last 5 nails.
With a directable exhaust, which blows air away from the operator and a muffler to keep the noise down, the ultra-quiet Bostitch FN1664K 16GA Straight Finish Nailer is a great choice for those bigger jobs or as a handy nailer around the home.
The added benefit of a reversible belt hook means both left and right handed users can take advantage of this safety feature. The integrated pencil sharpener, while it may seem rather trivial at first glance, can save a lot of downtime, it can be very frustrating searching for a pencil sharpener.
The light weight magnesium body is not only more comfortable to work with, but is also durable enough to cope with the challenges of the job site. The addition of a quick release nosepiece makes for safe and simple unjamming of nails.
The wide selection of nails which this nailer can accommodate – ¾ inch up to 2 ½ inch makes it extremely versatile and ideal for a whole host of carpentry tasks, from trim to heavier jobs such as door jambs.
The swivel air inlet of the Bostitch FN1664K 16GA Finish Nailer allows this pneumatic nail gun to access tighter and more difficult spaces and also makes it easier for the left handed user to operate safely. The swivel air inlet also means the hoses can be repositioned to make access easier and safer, a great advantage when working at the top of a ladder for example.
The filtered air inlet prevents dust and debris from getting into the casing and motor reducing maintenance costs and increasing the life of the motor. The safety trigger lock prevents the nailer from being fired accidently, a must if there are young children or animals near the job site.
