Tester: Cedric Rose, Cincinnati, OH
Skill level: Beginner ("I've installed some trim.")
Used tool for: Installing pine and MDF shoe molding.
My two cents: "The gun fired consistently, without jamming. I was concerned that the brads would split or shatter the MDF and the narrow, smaller strips of brittle wood molding, but the brads didn't damage either one."
