Here is a partially done picture. I had to clean up as my wife was throwing a baby shower.

I just laid in and finished the Herringbone floor and installed the doors. There was no entrance to that room here. I still have to add the horizontal pieces that will make up the approximate 2'x2' squares.

This trim was really my first use of my Felder combination shaper/saw/JP. I need to make some back band, that stuff was expensive!

The Pinner along with the glue actually worked well.

I’ve had my eyes on both Grex and Cadex for a while now.  Are there any Cadex users out there in FOG land. I don’t see too many reviews about that brand.

I bought a Cadex 23 ga pinned about 8 years ago, because it Took highest honors in a review by Fine Homebuilding.  I’ve never regretted that purchase. I used it last month to hold backs on cabinets until glue dried. I used it to install baseboard, shoe mounding, and door trim. I’ve also used it in jig building to hold wood until glue dries.  I’ve only had 2 jams out of maybe 1000 nails.

At IWF Atlanta I tried out the Grex Cordless 23ga pinner. It is one sweet considering selling my Cadex.

I've used multiple makes of air tools over the years.  Senco was the industrial standard and I had and still have a couple.  My go to's now are my Grex's, 18 ga, 23 ga pinners, 23 ga stapler, 7/16 stapler.

Had a small last minute job to do yesterday, and my go to Senco store was out of 23ga.... So I picked up a Bostich to do the job. What a pos.... I grabbed it like any other pinner and immediately sent a pin flying around the room. I shot three more before I figured out the safety release was on the handle. I suffered thru the job and took it straight back. Too dangerous. I've been wanting a Cadex or Grex and this experience confirms my desire.....

I got the Ryobi 23 ga pinner.  I don't use it a lot, but I like it so far.  Anyone else have more experience with it than I do?
