  • Where's Bam Bam?

    Feb 16, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: cordless, portable, fast, great performance
    Cons: requires some strength, expensive - but less than the competition

    Summary: Impress yourself and your friends with the lure of cordless mechanized nailing. Sounds great doesn't it, but it comes with a price - $230 to be exact. Not exactly peanuts, but priced competively with conventional air nailers. Another price to be paid ... read more

  • Best finisher on the market for its value

    Mar 31, 2002 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Cordless, light, convenient and versatile.
    Cons: Compression is a little stiff but better than dragging hoses and a compressor everywhere.

    Summary: I have been in the building and remodeling business for almost 15yrs and let me tell you if these type of tools had been available when I began, I would have never used a compressor again. I will say this, if you use your finisher exclusively in a shop, ... read more

  • No Problems !!!

    Pros: Price, quality feel, no battery
    Cons: a little awkward at times

    Summary: I've had this gun for about a year... haven't had a problem yet, although I'm a light user of this gun. I've done baseboard, crown & door mouldings for 4 rooms and alot of odd jobs around the house with it. Drives very well,haven't even had ... read more

  • I need an air compressor now

    Dec 5, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Cordless; No Compressor
    Cons: Bulky; Compression effort; Smelly!

    Summary: I used this nailer to complete most of the trim work in my new home. I've had it for several months, and these are my observations... The compression effort and bulkiness made it terrible in tight spots and for overhead work on crown molding. ... read more

  • Never thought I would look forward to doing molding.

    Nov 27, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Cordless!! Saves time. I look forward to doing molding (Never thought I would say that).
    Cons: A little too big. Have to pump three times to start. No nails included.

    Summary: I used to hate doing molding around windows, doors, and the floor. I would frame out a room, sheet rock, spackle and paint in a matter of days. But it would take me weeks to finish the molding. I never had the right tools and it just never came out ... read more

  • Porter Cable CFN250 "Bammer"

    May 17, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Needs no hose or compressor. Lightweight
    Cons: requires considerable effort to cock the tool, especially when standing in unstable positions.

    Summary: I have been using the Porter Cable CFN250 finish nailer for two years in my remodeling business, and I have come to depend upon it daily for various finish carpentry tasks. I have put 30,000 nails through it in this time, and suffered only two stoppages. ... read more

  • Can't beat the competition

    Feb 24, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: No battery, no compressor
    Cons: Awkward motion required to operate

    Summary: Porter Cable makes fine tools, no doubt about it. I own several of their great sanders and my father-in-law swears by their cordless drivers. But they missed the mark with the Bammer line of cordless nailers. My woodworking colleague, Charlie, ... read more

  • Airless is Awesome!!!

    Oct 2, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Lightweight, Powerful, Convenient
    Cons: A little Expensive--but not outrageous.

    Summary: I am currently in the process of building my own house (for the first time) so, needless to say, I am learning alot. One thing that I have found is that my purchase of this nail gun was a very good one. All my framing was done with with air ... read more

  • I would buy it again!

    Mar 27, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: portability
    Cons: cocking effort

    Summary: Yes I own a Bammer Hammer by Porter Cable! I Truly love it's mobility and power. I have used it for everything from building cabinetry, to the installation of finish mouldings. I has performed perfectly.. I would however not recommend it for the use ... read more

  • A must-have for the do-it-yourselfer

    Dec 21, 1999 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Lightweight and powerful
    Cons: none

    Summary: The Porter-Cable finish nail gun is a lightweight but powerful tool that should be in the garage of any half-way serious woodworker. It has a good balance in the hand when being used and has a depth adjustment to control the depth of the nail being set. ... read more

  • Great for the average guy, too slow for a pro.

    Rated Show
    Pros: convenience, of course
    Cons: Heavy, plunger could re-extend faster after shooting a nail.

    Summary: It works well, even if it's a bit heavy. I like that it doesn't need a battery like the passlode that I also own. The thing I like least is it can be a bit slow to extend after shooting a nail. It isn'e meant for rapid fire tho so it's not a huge ... read more
