The Porter Cable Mini Nailer is a great addition to any professional's toolbox. In this week's review of the Porter Cable Mini Nailer, we take a closer look at this compact palm nailer, featuring ergonomic controls, plenty of power, and a quick-change nose.

This compact framing nailer delivers up to 500 fasteners per charge and is ideal for attaching trim and molding with 16d nails. Featuring a lightweight design, the Porter Cable Mini Nailer delivers full power every time you hit the trigger.

After reading our review of the Porter Cable Mini Nailer, you know that this is a convenient, portable, and excellent tool for any professional. We also know that framing with wood involves using powerful tools – sometimes ripping out layers of wood.

So you need a tool that can take a beating, or put up with some abuse, such as banging a T-45 bit into some solid, dried wood.

Now, unless you got one with a heater hose, you will always be a little worried about the possible damage of the electrical cord. But Porter Cable goes one step further and includes a magnetic nose, so only one nail is needed to jam into the nose.

Also included is a swivel connector, similar to a hose.

The Porter Cable Mini Nailer comes in a variety of colors to match your trim or trim and structural nailer that you may also own.

The Porter Cable Mini Nailer may sound powerful, but it does have limits. While it packs plenty of power to drive nails up to 5 3/8 inches, it is considered a "palm" nailer and so cannot utilize framing nails.
