BOSTITCH Loads Smart Features Into New 16-Gauge Pneumatic Finish Nailer Kit

June 29, 2005 – East Greenwich, RI
– BOSTITCH announced today the introduction of its model FN16250K-2, a 16 gauge finish nailer kit designed to improve installation of trim, moldings, door/window casings, and cabinetry for professionals and serious DIY’ers alike. Global Product Manager Dan Burgjohann said, “Over the years, we have collected data regarding the characteristics carpenters need most from a finish nailer. As a result, our engineers used this research to incorporate state-of-the-art features into the most functional design available.”

The FN250K-2’s oil-free design requires no regular nailer maintenance, nor does it pose the risk of irreversible oil stains on expensive trim material. The unit’s exclusive dry-fire lockout feature prevents the driver blade from creating unsightly marks on stain-grade trim after the magazine empties its nail reserve.

Until now, finish nailers offered a single non-marring tip, which forced professionals to use a “one size fits all” approach to trim. However, the FN16250K-2 breaks through the barrier with the industry’s only (patent pending) set of four non-marring profile tips to assume the shape of a host of finish-related materials. The kit includes a convex tip for fluted trim, an offset tip for door/window molding, a tongue & groove tip for hardwoods, and a recess tip for crown molding.

BOSTITCH chose magnesium – the same metal used in aircraft design – to construct the nailer’s housing because of its lightweight, but extremely durable characteristics. Tipping the scales at only 3.3 pounds, the FN16250 is one of the lightest finish nailers in its class. The tool’s weight, combined with an over-molded grip works with the user to offer maximum comfort and minimize fatigue during overhead applications or prolonged use.

Clearing a jam is done in a flash thanks to complete, tool-free access to the tool’s drive channel. Its visual reload indicator allows the user to monitor nail count at a glance without opening the magazine. The FN16250 features an adjustable depth guide for setting nails to desired depths without changing the compressor settings. An ultra-quiet rear exhaust, located at the end of the handle, directs air away from the user to eliminate blowback.

The BOSTITCH FN16250K-2 uses 16 gauge finish nails ranging between 1-1/4" and 2-1/2" long. The kit includes the nailer (FN16250), a plastic carrying case, four profile tips, and a 1,000 pack of nails. Currently available on the market, the FN16250K-2 is expected to sell for approximately $179. The unique profile tips are also sold separately in kit versions as replacements for the FN16250 (model number TIPPAK2) or retrofits for the N62FNK-2, another finish nailer kit in the BOSTICH family (model number TIPPAK1).
