Senco's 21LXP 2-in. Pinner
Issue: Issue 359
Posted Date: 9/2/2014
There are times when the indent left by an 18-gauge brad nail is too big of a flaw in your work, but a tiny 23-gauge pin nail doesn't offer enough holding power for the job. If you've ever hoped for something in between, Senco has the solution in its new FinishPRO® 21LXP
. It's a slight/medium head 21-gauge pinner that delivers the holding power of a brad nail while leaving a much smaller indent that requires little to no filling.
Weighing in at only 2.7 lbs, and less than 9-in. in height and 8-in. in length, this ultra-lightweight and compact tool can easily fit into tight spaces. The ergonomic and angled pistol grip ensures a comfortable user experience, even over prolonged periods of time. With its ultra-narrow nose and non-marring pad, the 21LXP also delivers clean and exacting fastener placement.
The 21LXP is ideal for a variety of applications, including: light wood assembly, finish and trim work, installing molding and decorative trim, dowel and joint pinning, mirror and picture frame assembly, lightweight paneling, glazing strips, craft work, window beading, display and sign work.
The metal magazine increases the tool’s durability while it also automatically adjusts for different fastener lengths to provide quick and easy loading. Dry firing can ruin a delicate material, which is why Senco incorporates a last nail lockout. A display area on the magazine also allows users to easily see when fasteners are running low. The magazine holds up to 200 fasteners that can range in length from 5/8-in. to 2-in.
Exhaust for this pinner is located at the rear to direct air away from the user and, with the embedded muffler, it offers whisper quiet operation. The swiveling 1/4-in. plug helps keep the hose at bay and allow for easier maneuvering during use.
Senco's new FinishPRO 21LXP is available now for the suggested retail price of $249. To watch a video of the new pinner in action, click here.
