Go to HD or Lowe's and buy their little compressors that are set up like a
rolling suit case with wheels and an extending handle to pull it with. They
are around $100.00. Buy your brad nailer at Harbor Freight. They have one
that will shoot up to 2" brads for $19.99. We have used them for the last
few years in our home repair business and are very pleased with both the gun
If you want it really portable, and will use it on nothing more than a
finishing nailer, the little Senco is marvelous. Light, quiet, and rather
cute; but not much capacity. It took me 5 minutes to add 5 psi to a SUV
I have used HF and Dewalt nailers. The HF works okay, but just feels cheap;
the Dewalt is nicer. Now, whether that translates into product life or
whatever, I can't say.
I picked up a Porter Cable kit, compressor brad and finish nailer. It
was accidently marked down at the big orange store, and I love it.
Small enough to be one person portable, but large enough to not cycle
Oh, to sweeten the deal, PC had a mail in rebate for a air stapler
Just my option...

I have the same kit, but it came with the stapler. I like it a
lot, though it is quite noisy. I put it in the corner of my
basement and plumbed 1/2" copper around the basement and out to the
garage. I also put a connection by the stairs so with 50' of line
I can reach anywhere in the house (I'm in the process of re-doing
all my trim). It's rather nice to have air anywhere you need it.
I've also added an HF framing nailer and a Bostich siding nailer
You can add Bostich to the list too. The are all pretty good. I have
This is a good deal, IMO.
Coastal Tool is a good outfit.
That is a good deal. My kit, when purchased had only two guns and only
a 25 foot hose and no canvas bag.
This deal has a 40 foot hose, one more gun and the bag.
"Well, it doesn't happen all the time, but when it happens, it happens
Coastal is a better than good outfit. I used to go there back when they
were in their old location in Hartford with less than zero parking and I
hate places with crappy parking.

Yeah. I redid my soffit trim with one (on sale for $15) when I
replaced some of my rotted fascia boards. (The lightweight spruce is
sure nice!) I then bought their 1/4" crown stapler for $25. Both have
performed well each time I've used them.
Their 1/2" crown stapler is TEN BUCKS right now on coupon special.
It'd work better than the 1/4" for upholstery, so...here I go again.
