Grex 18-Gauge Nailer

The 18-gauge brad nailer is the jack-of-all-trades of the pneumatic fastening world. It has the right combina­tion of strength and finesse to get the vast majority of jobs assembled properly. Now Grex has added ele­ments of functionality, class and durability to the group with their newly unveiled “Green Buddy,” which makes this shop workhorse feel more like an agile stallion. With extras like a non-marring rubber tip, an auto-trigger lockout to prevent empty firing and a patented integrated-safety feature that allows the user to fire nails at virtually any angle, you almost forget about all the basics that this shop mainstay flawlessly provides. As the name implies, I don’t think you will be hard pressed to make friends with this newcomer.
