I've been looking at the Porter-Cable 20V. Anyone have experience with one? I used a compressor and a $20 Harbor Freight brad nailer and 2-inch brads to install T&G 1x6 pine boards on my cabin's interior walls year ago. The compressor has died and I'm thinking cordless would be the way to go now that I need to panel a new room we've added to the cabin.

Used mine a lot when I built my sauna. Love it but in cold weather below 20 F did not work.

Thanks, KK.

Guess I'll buy a nailer, two batteries and a charger before heading up the mountain next spring.

I read a critical review on line that said it required getting used to the delay between triggering and actual nailing. You didn't mention it, so it must be surmountable.

It won't be used in that kind of temperature (although it does get that cold up there). I leave the mountain immediately after the first snowflake.

I can't comment on the temp question but the Ryobi nailer I have works great in my SoCal temps.

What a fantastic tool.

A little bit of a delay between nailing not an issue in precision nailing though. I use it quite a bit with gorilla glue to hold stuff together while it sets up.

The Ryobi Cordless nailer was why I bought Ryobi cordless tools rather than another brand! Great to do small jobs rather than putting them off to get air tools out. And with a handy lighter tool and no cord easier to get more precision in nailing lighter finish work. From a ladder and difficult positions. I often tack bigger stuff and follow it with bigger fastners.
Sauna I built this fall using a old 8 X 8 ft storage shed. Used the nailer quite a bit on finish work.
