Since I got my pride and joy, no not the kids, the compressor. I have been feeling the need for a framing nailer, not just any nailer a porter cable FR350. I love those; Christy says that I’ll just shoot my eye out. However, I struggle with the concept of 200 dollars for a nail gun that has limited uses in my life. It is a hard pill to swallow, or more accurately an impossible one sell to the wife. I have been trying to weasel one some other way. I refuse to rent a tool that I need more than once. Borrowing always scares me because in the end there is a chance that I might be buying a broken tool as a replacement. So what do I do I decided to start cruising the pawn shops. Surely there is a stolen one that is selling for cheap, right? Sure enough I found one that just had a gasket leak and after my shrewd negotiation skills the price went from $90 to $45. What a deal right! The only problem is that the gasket leak is a cracked housing. It still works, but blows air like crazy. After, talking about is around work I got the suggestion to use epoxy to seal it. And it worked!! Score one for the good guys or me depending on your point of view.
