Milwaukee’s 16-Gauge Straight Finish Nailer is a powerful nail gun that is part of the M18 Fuel line, meaning it can use the same battery as any other M18 Fuel product. This tool fires three nails per second with no ramp-up delay to create clean, uniform holes, and the battery will last long enough to fire 700 nails before a recharge.
Its compact size makes it easy to use, especially in tight corners and hard-to-reach areas. Plus, since it doesn’t need a gas cartridge, it’s exceptionally lightweight. The product uses 1″-2.5″ straight finish nails and can hold 110 in one magazine. Other features include a reversible belt hook, an attached LED work light, and sequential and contact actuation firing modes that work great with hard and soft woods.
The Milwaukee 16-Gauge Straight Finish Nailer is one of the best quality woodworking tools available, but if there is a downside, it’s the steep price. Typically, the nailer will cost between $340 and $360, but it may be worth it if it means you never use a different nailer again.
