    New Oil-Free Brad Nailers and Stapler from Stanley-Bostitch Drive “Ease of Use” to Higher Level of Performance

    New Bostitch® Brad Nailers and Stapler Offer Industry’s Highest Power-To-Weight Ratio

    Stanley-Bostitch introduces a new family of oil-free trim and finish tools including the BT200K-2, BT125K-2, and the SX150K-1. The line offers the lightest magnesium frame brad and narrow crown finish staple nailers that weigh as little as 1.9 lbs due to their magnesium housing and new design containing 30 fewer parts. The oil-free engine features an ultra-quiet rear exhaust that delivers excellent driving power giving it the highest power-to-weight ratio available with any brad nailer. The Bostitch® nailers also feature an open nose design offering complete access to the drive channel for fast and easy jam clearing. The nailers have an easy access depth adjustment and ergonomic design that deliver excellent balance, accuracy and handling.

    Chicago, Illinois, August 11, 2002 - Life in the workshop just became easier for avid woodworkers with the new Bostitch® oil-free trim and finish tools. Starting at only 1.9 pounds, these new tools are the lightest magnesium frame brad nailers and narrow crown finish stapler in the industry.

    The ultra-quiet rear exhaust oil-free engine eliminates oil stains and drippings on the work surface. Most pneumatic tools require the user to put several drops of oil in the tool daily for lubrication. With its oil-free design, the new trim and finish tools offer convenience and eliminate daily oil maintenance. This feature also prevents accidental oil spills on work surfaces that could make them difficult to paint. The practical rear exhaust feature is welcomed by end-users as it eliminates the bothersome front exhaust from competitor’s tools when fired causing blow-back and nuisance in tight spaces.

    “Our research showed that end users want a product they don't have to maintain on a daily basis,” said Brian Strickland, Global Product Manager for Bostitch® Pneumatic Nailers and Compressors.

    “The oil used in traditional pneumatic tools is messy and many people forget to oil their tools regularly. We feel we’ve developed a product that gives the expert and novice user outstanding performance without regular maintenance.”

    The new family of pneumatic tools achieves its ultra-lightweight feature by using a highly durable and lightweight magnesium alloy in the housing. While the new tools are lightweight, they are a heavyweight when it comes to driving power. The new Bostitch® brad nailers and narrow crown stapler deliver superior driving power giving them the industry’s highest power-to-weight ratio available in its class.

    Another feature aimed at saving time is the open channel design of the tool that provides the user complete, tool-free access to the drive channel in order to quickly locate and clear jams. A highly visible reload indicator alerts the user when more fasteners are needed and an exclusive magnetic strip makes loading fasteners easy by holding them in place. The new tools contain 30 fewer parts than competitive nailers and staplers, which means less maintenance for the end-user.

    The Bostitch® oil-free brad nailers and narrow crown stapler are ergonomically designed with a handle that is in-line to the magazine, allowing excellent balance, handling and accuracy. This feature makes the tool equally comfortable for both right- and left-hand users. The handle features a molded rubber grip for an outstanding combination of comfort and durability.
