Win a Duo-Fast Cordless Roofing Nailer from Tool Snob


Our pals at Duo-Fast are handing over a few of their Cordless Roofing Nailers for us to off load onto you guys. If you're unfamiliar with the tool, it's the first legit cordless roofing nailer on the market. This cordless action is good for a lot of reasons, chief among them is the lack of a compressor setup and no air hoses to deal with once you're up on the roof.

Because it can only shoot about 2 nails per second (far slower than a pneumatic-powered roofing crew is used to), the Duo-Fast is meant for small job, and repairs. So it's good for the pro roofer and if you're part of the DIY crowd, it'll probably be the only roofing gun you'll ever need.

We're going to accentuate the cordless nature of the tool, so to enter to win you only need to leave a comment at this post finishing this sentence, "An unnecessary airhose on the roof is as dangerous as..."

If you're drawing a blank, here are a few to get the creative juices flowing:

...applying ammonia-based shellac in a room with the windows closed (trust us on this one)...?

...the guy I used to work with who wrapped wire around his circ saw so the blade guard couldn't close (true story!)....?

...a neck-height tripwire on the bike path....?

Also, if you 'like' Duo-Fast on Facebook, we'll enter your name five additional times in the drawing.

In a week we'll announce a winner and at that time, we'll cook up another ridiculous way to win the second gun.

Duo-Fast has info on the tool here and our original write-up of it is here.

The gun has a retail in the $500 range, so if you judge by price alone, this is a pretty sweet prize.

Using bumper jacks on top of cement blocks to hold the '73 Nova high enough to drop the transmission and replace it. Been there, done that and lived to tell about it!

An unnecessary airhose on the roof is as dangerous as... checking to see if your pistol is loaded by aiming it at your head and pulling the trigger. (True story about a cop drunk at a party in Florida)

An unnecessary airhose on the roof is as dangerous as speaking down to your outspoken and strong-willed wife, and both will bring you down to earth rear-end first.

An unnecessary airhose on a roof is as dangerous as a guy I used to work with who demolished a roof by cutting through the rafters and then jumped on the roof. He also shot himself in the ankle with a framing gun.

@Brian Wavra - LOL!

Just bought a new house and found out the first weekend that there are few small sections of the garage roof that need repair. This would help save me from renting a roofing nailer.

I believe Michael Jackson said it best with his 1991 hit..

"She's so dangerous
The girl is so dangerous
Take away my money
Throw away my time
You can call me honey
But you're no damn good for me
Like an unnecessary airhose on the roof"

eeeeee heee!

this would come in very handy...I'm adding wood shingles to a gable window and this would save me a lot of sweat and a lot of dough.
