    B & Q are selling a 240 volt nail gun called tac wise.
    Are they any good ?

    Not sure what model B&Q are doing but they make several guns including a cordless that will fire upto 50mm so that puts them into the Brad nailer class. As for pinners I'll stick to my Maestri.

    Tac wise used to be Rapesco.

    The 191el isn't bad but don't expect too much. Fastens 6mm board no problem though, maybe even up to 12mm but you need a firm hold ofthe handle otherwise the pins stay proud of the surface.

    Spare nails are available in machine mart a lot cheaper than B&Q

    Not in the same league as a Paslode which fires real nails as opposed to long pins or staples.

    I bought a Rapesco (Takwise) brad nailer a few years ago. It is now hung up in the workshop as a warning not to waste money on such carp again. The pins wouldn't go to full depth but left approx 1/8" standing proud. Rapesco insisted that only their own brads would work in it which were more expensive than others.
