All these framing nailers live a pretty rough life on the construction site and get dragged through the dirt and beat up and abused ..
Maintenance of these tools by the operator is almost never done and its a good day when the tool sees a drop of oil ,it’s all about speed and getting the job done not like in the old days when tools were taken care of and treated with respect .
.I have seen and heard of many injuries involving air nailers and feel that most of them are caused by the operator .
I have seen nailers where the safety has been made inoperative to speed up the process and seen nailers with the safety bent or stuck open because of dirt in the mechanism .
I dont know the exact reason for the recall but have a pretty good idea and I am glad to see it getting repaired and it will hopefully prevent some injuries .
*Before operating any tool read the safety manual it is important and maintain the tool .

Hi,
My name is Rich. I too live in central Wisconsin. I am really interested in your horizontal router table. Has it worked out well. Have you ever loaded plans for it? It looks great. If you have plans I’m interested. I just became a member of wood working web today.
