Pin Nailers

A pin nailer is one of the tiniest instruments in the nail gun lineup. Also sold as a pinner or micro-pinner this instrument should not be confused with finish nail guns. These devices were designed for more delicate jobs like small woodworking projects, home renovation, arts and crafts. Also, these nailers are quite precise and noiseless. All these models use thin 23-gauge pins with the different length.

Uses

The pinner delivers when used for the construction of tiny to medium-sized moldings on doors, chairs to interior millwork. Since the molding also has an uneven form, it becomes impossible to keep the clamps while the glue dries. A few pins of a 23-gauge nailer, though, will tie the bits together without a trace.

Small bits of wood are not the only ones that are ideally designed for a pinner. Stapling and clamping together huge planks of wood will also transform into a sliding grappling match, because only the properly applied clamping action allows the parts to move. A few shots with a pinner, nevertheless, solve the issue. The pins prohibit the side-by – side moving of glue-covered wooden pieces.

Pinners are typically applied for finishing and fixing carpentry projects, and they are the tiniest, finest nailers you may find. Such devices are compliant with 23-gauge headless fingers, which look like sticks.

Pin nails have very little holding power and are typically applied in tandem with glue or any other type of adhesive. Often pin nails are simply picked to secure the items in place before the adhesive dries.

Typically, pinners are applied for such projects:

  • Finishing works in the carpentry niche;
  • Making crown molds;
  • For occasional cabinetry repair;
  • Can works with delicate trim pieces and ultra-thin veneers;
  • Will cope with small furniture trimming jobs;
  • Any DIY home repair project;
  • Installation of cupboards and windows;

Basically this nailer should be used in small parts where larger nail guns could break the thin pieces of wood.

Benefits

Yes, a pinner is not the first nail gun that comes to mind when you stock the tools you’re your workshop or toolbox, but it could definitely be the second best choice. You may use this pinner for fixing and repairing furniture, cabinets and trim work without any visible nail holes. Pinners can totally be brand new tools, but they’re definitely here to stay for a long time.

Major pros of pinners:

  • Won’t make any visible holes around the installed nails;
  • The wood will not be split;
  • Delicate for trim pieces can be connected with a pinner;
  • Use small, thin 23-gauge pin nailers;
  • Good for delicate woodworking projects;
  • More accurate than most standard nail guns;
  • Portable and compact – will fit any toolbox;
  • Smoother finish – the nails are practically invisible;

Final thoughts

Generally, pinners are ideally matched to the finest of trims, tiny furniture trims, and ultra-thin veneers where certain larger-gauge arms might break the wood. There are several jobs where the pinner would be useful, but generally it is better adapted for connecting fragile trim parts, thin veneers and even for operating on small furniture trims.
