Just had to tell someone . . . In the process of wiring my shop with a
receptacle of some voltage on every stud, I found a great use for a Porter
Cable PN650. Putting up electrical boxes . . . This thing is very
controllable . . . I have only used the common nail attachment so far . .
But I must say I am impressed. I originally bought it to do all my Simpson
wind straps and joist hangers . . . Got it open started playing with it &
realized it was very easy to control . . . did not crack or warp one
bakelite/plastic box . . . Installed 58 of them . . . .
I don't know what I did before I picked one of these up. I chose the
Porter Cable because the lower cost Stanley did not have (or at least
they said they didn't have) variable drive depth. I used it to put
vinyl siding on the garage, and every nail is perfectly proud of the
vinyl. I did have to add another washer to get it right, but it worked
It's a great thing to have when driving 6-inch ring nails (pole barn
nails), too. No more aching arms from the hammer.
