June 29, 2005 – East Greenwich, RI
– BOSTITCH announced today the introduction of its 23 gauge
pin nailer - the model TU-216-2330. Designed for use in cabinet
shops, this pin nailer performs exceptionally well in all detailed
woodworking applications such as constructing picture frames;
installing molding, decorative trim, and window beading.
The TU-216-2330 provides greater pin capacity ranging from 1/2"
to 1-3/16", which is a 19% increase over competitive models.
Designed to minimize downtime, the magazine adjusts to different
fastener lengths automatically. Its side-load magazine houses up
to 200 pins so the user can focus more on the work and less on reloading.
A low-profile tip tapers down to the contact point for a clear line
of sight from any angle when precise pin placement is an absolute
The unit features an integrated high/low power control for setting
pin nails precisely at desired depths conveniently without changing
compressor settings. Its dual trigger acts to ensure a safe operation
while the unit is in use. Touting 60 inch-pounds of power, the TU-216-2330
can countersink 1-3/16" pin nails into a host of hard woods
including oak and maple. Moreover, the unit features an over-molded
grip for maximum comfort with a rear exhaust that exits near the
coupler to channel blowback out and away from the work.
Featuring a lightweight aluminum body for added durability, the
TU-216-2330 weighs only 2.17 pounds. With a height of 7.81"
and length of 9.06", this unit has no issue maneuvering into
tight spaces. Currently available on the market, the TU-216-2330
is expected to sell for approximately $139. It accepts BOSTICH,
Senco®, Accuset, and Porter-Cable 23 gauge pin nails. Also,
a kit version of the BOSTITCH pin nailer – the model HP118K
– will be available later in October. It will include the
pin nailer, a plastic carrying case, and 500 each of 1/2" nails,
3/4" nails, and 1" nails. The HP118K pin nailer kit is
expected to sell for approximately $145.
