Dewalt DCN692B Review – Introduction
Hammering nails one at a time can be an arduous task, particularly if the job at hand requires hundreds, if not thousands, of nails to be used. A nail gun is a carpenter’s solution to this problem.
Nail guns are designed to fire nails into wood (or any other medium that you’re using) with great speed and efficiency, allowing you to insert many nails at a fraction of the time it would take using a hammer.
Nail guns not only save time on the job, but they also prevent your hands from getting sore from the force of hammering all day long.
There are many quality brands of nail guns out on the market, and DeWalt is no exception. Founded in 1924, Dewalt have been producing power tools for almost 100 years, and their products are just as excellent today as they were back then.
