Cordless Finish Nailer Paslode has finally introduced a cordless finish gun. The new Impulse 250, operates similarly to the Impulse 325 framing nailer: A 6-volt battery ignites a measured amount of propane-like fuel, and the explosion forces the piston straight down to drive the nail. Since it takes less energy to drive a finish nail than a framing nail, the finish nailer uses a different fuel canister than the framing tool. But the 250 will drive everything from 3/4-inch brads to 2 1/2-inch (8d) finish nails, making it one of the most versatile finish guns on the market.
