Uffy TH-T-CZ10 23 Gauge Pinner - Review

Couple weeks back, we reviewed a nice brad gun from Uffy. Now, we're going to turn our attention to one of their 23-gauge pinners, a tool with the roll-off-the-tongue name of TH-T-CZ10. They sent us this fella a while ago and we've been using it off and on and putting it head to head against our other pinners.

Our verdict on the Uffy brad gun was that it was extremely durable and perfect for either the hardcore professional or someone so clumsy they drop their tools every five to ten minutes. As for the pinner, there's not a whole lot more to say. It really falls in the same category: rugged, solid, pretty badass.

As with the brad gun, Uffy has designed the pinner for brutal, all-day-long, repetitive use. There is no plastic on this fella, just metal. It's basic too, with the only frill being the adjustable exhaust. The gun can shoot pins 1/2" to 1-3/16".

At first the design of the safety trigger was a problem for us, but after a few uses the awkward feel went away. Our Cadex pinner has a safety trigger underneath the real trigger, so you pull the lower trigger away then pull the real trigger. The Uffy is different, it has the two reversed, so you have to nudge the safety trigger forward in order to get your finger in there and grip the real trigger. This design is better for the production work that the Uffy is designed for and, like we said, after a bit, we got used to it.

In all of our use and testing, we didn't run across anything that the pinner failed at. It's a small gun, much smaller than our Cadex (but the Cadex has a much larger nail capacity, up to 2" so it's not really apples to apples). But regarding power, the Uffy was great. It's a nice tool.

We did have the same issue as we had with the brad gun, namely the lack of accessorizing. The tool comes with no case, no fitting, nothing, just the bare tool in a cardboard box.

So, it really boils down to the durability thing. It's a strong tool and at $150, it has a reasonable price tag for what you're getting. Just don't forget to set aside a few bucks for a toolbox to go with it.
