Rechargeable air canister
KevinS

Today watching Tom Silva install laminate in the basement he used a rechargeable air canister in a nifty little tote hooked to his nail gun to install the shoe molding. I think he mentioned that it held about 3,000 psi, enough to shoot a bunch of nails before needing recharged. Anyone know what brand of canister that was & where I can find it?

I didn't catch the name but I would think it was a CO2 unit similar to this

Lowes carries a regulator and hose kit that I believe works with paint-ball cylinders.

You heard right KevinS, the rechargable canister system holds compressed AIR, and can be used instead of a compressor. He was sporting a Turbin Air kit (bottle, gauges/controls, line & pouch)to install the quarter-round trim finishing off the installation of a click floating engineered bamboo flooring in the play room.

I tested one of these a while back. I didn't catch the 3000 lb charge statement or how many brads or staples he said he could shoot on one bottle charge, the phone rang, but would likely have been the work bottle 68 (3000 lbs) or 114 (4500 lbs) kit.

Then click on the WB-68 or WB-114.

Here's the specs with shot counts and FAQs for the T-force work bottle WB68-3R. http://www.turanairsystems.com/uploads/Quick_Start_Guide.pdf

Nope, it was a T-force Turbin Air work bottle kit.

Thanks Gray, that is exactly what I am looking for. Much rather that than the CO2.
