Makita’s cordless brad nailer has all the features of an air-powered nailer, but it’s fully portable and doesn’t require a compressor. The gun shoots 18-gauge brads, up to 2 inches long. It has a capacity of 110 nails and comes with a tool-free depth-of-drive adjustment and a dry-fire lock out. Rubber bumpers on the body protect delicate surfaces when the gun is put down. It can be toggled between sequential and contact nailing, and a battery gauge shows the charge level. A built-in LED completes the package.Price: $299 (bare tool) / COO: Japan /
