Max has just come out with a new standard-pressure 18-gauge brad gun (NF255F) that uses the same driver and bumper technology as the company's 400-psi tools. According to Max, this makes the gun four to 10 times more durable than the compe­tition. The tool can accept brads from 5/8 inch to 2-1/8 inches in length. It has a well-rounded selection of features, including a belt hook, a tool-free depth dial, and a sequential or single-fire toggle.
