Porter Cable FR350A – Nails Any Framing Job

The Porter Cable FR350A Framing Nailer is a must have for any serious carpenter, whilst it is unsuitable for more delicate wood work when it comes to hammering large nails into wood on building or renovation jobs this piece of equipment can make the project much easier and save a lot of time and energy.

This nailer weighs in at 8lbs which is fairly heavy but you will struggle to find any lightweight nailers! The weight is required to counteract the recoil from the nailer as the nails are sunk into the wood. Whilst the weight may cause stress to the wrist this should not be over excessive as the nailer will most likely only be used for fairly short periods of time.

Porter Cable FR350A dimensions:

Length: 21″
Height: 14.25″
Width: 4.6″

Operating Pressure – The maximizes its potential in the range between 70 – 120 PSI with the additional advantage of running from almost any size of compressor so long as it has a tank – even the small pancake style compressors will easily drive the Porter Cable FR350A nailer. It comes already fitted with a quarter inch air fitting, however this can easily be changed if it does not suit the attachments you have. You will also discover that it has a dust cap fitted to prevent dust getting into the air inlet. It is always wise to store any air tools away from sources of dust and with this in mind the FR350A comes with its own carry case.

There has been many a long debate about the type of nails which should be used in building and construction jobs Full rounded head or clipped head nails? There is the argument for clipped head nails that states more nails can be fitted into the magazine of the nailer so you spend less time refilling. However in many states these nails are not deemed to be suitable for building or renovation work. The uses full round headed nails which are seen as being fit for this type of work, giving you one less building regulation problem to concern you. The magazine will hold 64 full round headed nails.

Another advantage of the FR350A is that you are not restricted to using one brand of nails, there are a lot of brands of framing nails on the market and provided they meet the specification in the manual provided with the tool you can choose which you would rather use.

There are many additional features such as the removable non-mar tip for use when you don’t want any marks or scratches left on the surface, and the non slip rubber grip on the handle for safety and comfort in use.

Like all air tools the Porter Cable FR350A let out puffs of compressed air via an exhaust at high speed as it dispenses nails into the wood, this model allows you to quickly and easily adjust the position of the exhaust so that it is pointing away from you and colleagues as you work. On the FR350A there is no requirement for additional tools to do this.

The FR350A facilitates the use of a restrictive trigger mode or a contact actuation mode on this model and the ease with which you can change between the two is fantastic, some nailers require the whole trigger to be changed for each mode, not on this model! To change mode on the Fr350A it only requires that you release a small red dial which is spring loaded from its socket. It is then possible to turn the dial to select either restrictive trigger or contact actuation modes very quickly and without fuss.

In all, the Porter Cable FR350A is reliable and durable over periods of prolonged use It can easily pack enough punch to dispense nails into composite materials as well as soft and hard woods. Foreveryday use this nailer may be a bit moreexpensive but it will deliver the professional performance needed by professionals.

porter cable clip head nail gun where can I buy round head nails that will work?

Why does my package of Porter-Cable galvanized finishing nails say not to use them outside?

I bought Porter-Cable galvanized, 15 ga. finishing nails to use in laying deck boards (5/4″ cedar). When I began I noticed the package says “Not for outdoor use – For interior only.” What’s up with that? I thought galvanized nails were exactly what you wanted for outdoor work.

Any ideas about WHY it says not to use them outdoors, and more important, do you think it would be OK to use them for this purpose despite what the package says?

Thanks!
