    Hey,

    I am getting into some home remodeling and I need a brad nailer for some molding work, and after that is done we are looking to sell our current place and buy a fixer-upper, I am pretty handy and enjoy doing stuff like that, but I am young and have a very limited amount of tools. So I am starting a tool collection, got to buy a nice circular saw last week and got the ok (from the wife) to go buy a brad nailer. But the issue is, I have a limited budget, so I trying to decide between a factory refurb Bostitch Brad Nailer with refurb pancake compressor from CPO or to just get a brand new Nailer and borrow a friends compressor.

    Refurb Combo Deal - $120
    http://www.cpobostitch.com/factory-reconditioned-bostitch-u-cpack1850bn-2-in-1-brad-nailer-and-compressor-combo-kit/bstrcpack1850bn-r,default,pd.html?start=6&cgid=bostitch-combo-kits


    New Nailer - $100
    http://www.lowes.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?langId=-1&storeId=10151&catalogId=10051&cId=SEARCH&productId=3067983&cm_mmc=SCE_gps-_-gps-_-gps-_-STANLEY-BOSTITCH%202-lb.%20Brad/Pin%20Pneumatic%20Nailer&CAWELAID=1024206862


    I am leaning towards the refurb combo, but leery of the condition and longevity of the refurb, also having a compressor long term is a good thing too.

    Or is there a better nailer than the Bostitch?



    WOW and I suck at spelling Bostitch.... :rolleyes:

    CPO is the only way to go!!!!!! I have a lot of tools we use daily at my business. Nary a problem with any of them and a LOT better price than new.

    Mr. Marv Sub, TRD wheels, Tint, Carbon Fiber wrap roof,
    Refurb, and they usually have warranty anyway. Plus you knocked off 25% or so.

    Refurb. They are tested 100% only a small % of brand new stuff is actually tested. So your chances of getting a reliable product is with refurbs. And you save money too. And as mentioned, factory warranty usually applies.

    If you go factory reconditioned,(any tool) make sure you @ least have a 90 day/1 yr warranty.
