Grizzly H5527 18 Gauge Brad Nailer Kit

grizzly_brad.jpgWe have no doubt that the Cadex Headless Pin and Brad Nailer that we talked about yesterday is an amazing tool. In fact, we're sure that each cog and gear is finely tuned to near perfection, and that when in use, the nailer practically becomes part of the hand. But at a price of over $300, it's not the tool for everyone. Those of you out there who don’t have a few hundred bucks to spend on a brad nailer need an option too, right?

So we did some research and discovered Grizzly's H5527 18 Gauge Brad Nailer Kit. The gun can handle 5/8" to 1-1/4" brads and has an adjustable exhaust and an adjustable depth of drive setting. And that's really about it. But, you know what? That's really all you need (and you don't even need the adjustable exhaust). We appreciate this gun for it's straight up simplicity. No frills, it's just a brad gun.

And with this simplicity comes a nice affordable price. The kit will only set you back $25. We repeat: $25. We can't find any mention of what comes in the kit, but we assume that there's a case, possibly oil, and hopefully a packet of brads included. But even if you're getting just the tool, it's still an amazing deal. For reference, the Porter-Cableand Hitachicost around $80.

For $25 we wouldn't expect a brad gun to be up for daily contractor abuse, but if you're looking for something around the house or for a cheap back-up tool, this might be a good place to start. It also might be a good way to wet your feet in the world of pneumatic tools.

We did a quick check of the Amazon.com comment boards and it looks like some people have some jamming problems with the Grizzly, but most seem to love the thing and give it the full five stars.
