Great Product
I purchased my Electric Brad Nailer about a year ago. At the time of my purchase, I was a new home owner and envisioned myself doing alot of small projects with a nailer around the house. So getting a nailer was a must for me. Since I was a new home owner, having limited space in my garage and would not use the nailer often, I knew getting an electric/battery nailer was the way to go. I found that the battery operated nailers, although the reviews were quite good, were expensive (I was about to spend over $300 before finding this craftsman electric nailer). I must admit, I'm still fond of the battery nailers, but I love my electric nailer. There is no reloading noise. You simply press up against the wood you need to nail, hold it firm and pull the trigger. The sound you hear is not scary, not intimidating and is quieter than you repeatedly hitting a hammer on the head of a nail. Best of all, you don't have an air pressure tank making any noise. My project included adding chair rail moulding in my dining room and shoe moulding all around my house. The only jam I had was when I pulled the trigger with a bit of a loose wrist. The only negative, which I think could apply to any nail gun, is that the nailer will leave a mark where you shot the nail into the wood. All you need to do is add a little joint compound or wood filler (depending on your moulding and intentions of course), let dry and slightly sand for smoothness before you paint/stain. If you know that you want either a battery powered or electric nailer, you should consider this one (the reviews turned me off on the other electric craftsman). I am very happy with my purchase. I think the other reviews here helped me, so a year later, I figured I'd come back to help another new homeowner. Good luck with your decision and project....and don't forget your safety glasses and nails. Kind regards, Stephen

Craftsman professional electric brad nailer is junk...

I needed an electric nailer as I do not have an air compressor. I read the reviews of cheaper ones and thought this more expensive one would be able to handle most jobs I would be doing. I intended on building some shelves for vinyl records with 1/4" and 3/4" plywood. I got maybe 50 shots out of this gun before a nail jammed. I removed the jammed nail according to the manual which was pretty simple.

After screwing the safety pin and plate back on, the nailer no longer feeds or shoots any nails. I took it apart 5 or so more times to see if anything was stuck in it still, but it's clear. Appears that the first jammed nail caused internal damage. I was using 1-3/16" Craftsman nails recommended for the gun and tried using smaller 3/4" Craftsman nails also reccomended, but it still wouldn't fire any. Just keeps shooting "blanks". I read other reviews of this gun that stated the exact same problem, but for the money and being that I was only nailing thin plywood, I thought I would have better luck. Guess not.

STAY AWAY FROM THIS CRAFTSMAN ELECTRIC BRAD NAILER UNLESS YOU WANT TO RETURN IT SHORTLY AFTER FIRST USE! IT IS A PIECE OF JUNK!

Nailer Works Well after Two Years or Occassional Use

I tried and returned many other brand electric nail guns from ********** and ***** until I purchased this Sears nailer.   I have used this nailer over two years without any probems on several different projects including building DVD shelves from laminated shelving, re-attaching pine and oak ceiling and floor molding, and most recently building a file drawer with plywood and hickory.  The nailer has worked flawlessy without a single jam. It seems heavier duty and higher quality than other brand electric nailers.  My only complaints are that I wish there was a nail size between 3/8" and 3/4" and I wish the nails came in boxes with fewer than quantity 5000 nails.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Just not powerful enough.

I bought this gun to install some baseboard trim in a Condo. I didn't want to lug my compressor and deal with the noise on the 4th floor.  In the end, this gun just didn't have the power to consistently set the nails in the composite baseboard.

If you are doing light crafts, maybe. I doubt it would work very well if your using hardwood.

This is a good tool to have around

I bought this nail gun to finish some moulding in a kitchen. The tool worked good for the moulding but left marks where the tip met the wood. I bought this to eliminate using nails and a hole punch to counter sink the nails, but with the marks on the wood, I had to fill in the holes any way. Also does not work well with hard wood such as maple. Tried to put some moulding on maple cabinets and some brad nails did not go through all the way. It is very hard to hammer in or take out a 1" brad nail that does not go all the way through. The nails are also very expensive and come in large packs. Unless you have a very big job you will have nails left over for the rest of your life. At $22 each it is hard to buy the different sizes you will need for different jobs. If you are looking for a smooth job, I would recommend a good brad nail-er with built in compressor.

Did not live up to expectations

I wish I'd had the success of the other reviewers. I found the nailer to be quiet and relatively light, but I returned it after about 100 "shots". Many times the nailer would misfire and after one nail jammed I could not get it to feed nails into the "gun" again. I found the nailer did not adequately countersink the nails (used 1-3/16" nails, which aren't easy to find. I could not find them at 2 Sears stores.) and I had to use a nail set to tamp each nail a bit deeper. It also leaves significant dents in the molding that need to be filled in with wood putty. Overall the tool did not live up to my expectations. Thankfully Sears readily accepted the return.

Great Tool

I was looking for a Brad Nailer to put up crown moulding on kitchen cabinets read several reviews on other nailers but they all talked about jamming. I purchased this model based on other reviews. I used it this weekend to put up 60 ft of moulding with tons of angles. moulding was pine on oak cabinet faces. Not one brad jammed or didn't seat . Great tool costs alot more then others but it's worth it.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Time to get another one

After using my old one for six years nailing through oak trim on furniture and pine trim throughout my house, I put it on a garage sale last year and someone bought it. It reliably drove 1 3/16 brads and that's all I've ever used. Now I need to get something for another big furniture job. This still looks like the best buy. I'd like a cordless version but reviews on the cordless nailers don't look good and I know this one will do the job. It's amazing with oak.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
