Grex - 23 Gauge 1/2-Inch Length Headless Pins (2,500 Per-Box) - P6/12-2.5
Why choose Grex 23 Gauge Headless Pins?
Not all 23 gauge pins are created equal. The quality of fasteners is dependent on three key attributes: (1) accurate dimensional specifications, (2) optimal material composition, and (3) dependable collation.
Because 23 gauge pins are extremely fine, setting high standards for each of these attributes is much more critical than traditional finish nails such as 18 or 16 gauge brads. You can be assured that all Grex 23 Gauge Pins are manufactured and tested for the tightest tolerances for each of these attributes.
These qualities will minimize the potential for nail jams and prevent damage to your tool. They also make it possible for your tool to drive these pins into the wood of your choice. Grex pins can easily penetrate through red oak - that's any pin length ranging from 3/8" upto 2". We have proven results for these pins with your Grex Pinner, but they will surely make any 23 gauge pin nailer work better.
Headless vs. Slight Headed Pins
Your Grex pinners are designed to only drive headless pins. When we developed our first pinner over 10 years ago, our testing showed that a tool that drives both headless and slight headed pins had a significantly higher risk of jamming which eventually resulted in tool damage. The reason is the looser tolerances required to accomodate both types of fasteners. So we decided to use purely headless pins. Holding power of a fastener comes from friction along the fastener shank and a combination of toeing and/or angling shots; not the head. And if you want to use a 23 gauge fastener because of the small hole it leaves, then why put a head on it to make it bigger?
