Cordless Palm Nailer
Milwaukee Electric Tool Co. has added a professional-grade battery-powered palm nailer (model 2458-20/21) to its 12-volt cordless M12 line. Unlike other cordless nailers with angled heads, this unit is designed to be used with a hand-over-tool grip, like a conventional pneumatic nailer. According to the manufacturer, the new tool will be powered by next-generation "Red" lithium-ion batteries and has the capacity to drive both framing and joist-hanger nails. Price: $99 (tool only); $129 (with battery and charger). 800-729-3878. www.milwaukeetool.com.
