The other day I went to go see Mack @thesprayfoamguy to give him a hand with some basement blanket insulation. – As much as we dislike the stuff, its a requirement to pass as a minimum insulation in an unfinished basement. – For this job we put the @dewalt_ca DCN890 through its paces. Needless to say, its almost as if this gun was designed for this task alone. It worked perfectly in both the poured sections, and a section of existing block wall. – There are a few types of pins available, but the basic choices are, a short reduced diameter shank pin for hard concrete and steel, and a standard diameter pin for soft concrete, which you can get in lengths up to 2.25” long. – Dewalts concrete pinner works off a flywheel design, so there are no fumes from fuel, or powder shots to purchase. You can get up to 600 shots off a 5.0 pack. – The tool comes in two versions, one with a reduced height magazine for drywallers/steel stud use, but its essentially the same gun, and you can swap the magazine on type 2 guns if you choose. – @atlasmachinery – #sitecrash #basementblanket #concretepinner #insulation #newhome #newbuild #dewalt

Metabo AS 18V L PC Cordless HEPA Vacuum Cleaner Review (@ToolsByDesign)

I really like this Metabo AS 18V L PC Cordless Vacuum Cleaner. The long antistatic hose is really handy compared to what comes with other cordless vacuums. The optional wheeled dolly performs very well and can be used with systainers / MacPacs if not holding the vacuum. This vacuum runs on a single 18v battery pack to deliver 75 cfm of suction on high. The footprint is small, the size of a Systainer IV storage case. Everything stores easily inside which is really nice. Model: AS 18V L PC Price: $199 bare w/ free Wheeled Dolly ($129) ($445 kit with 2x 8.0ah batteries, charger, & bag + free bare tool/battery) Available: Now @ohiopowertool SPECS: Air output max – 75 cfm Vacuum – 120 hPa (mbar) Filter surface – 3600 cm² Container volume – 7.5 l / 2 gallons Suction hose Ø – 27 mm / 1 1/16" Hose length – 3 m / 118 1/8" 72 dB sound level .
