These Porter Cable Air Pin Nailers are compact, just like the nails that they drive. Weighing in at only 2 pounds and measuring just 9" long, this pinner is easy to maneuver. Its ergonomic handle completes its user friendly design making it effortless to operator throughout the whole day. If you are driving nails into thin pieces of wood or trim and don't want it to split than an Air Pin Nailer is the only way to get the job done quickly. The other option is to fumble with tiny pin nails and manually drive them in with a traditional hammer, which takes forever if your hands are bigger than a child's.
