Received a few offers from Amazon this morning and noticed this electric brad nailer

https://www.amazon.co.uk/VonHaus-Cordle ... W673HPDER3

It's by far the cheapest electric nailer i've seen (currently on offer) and looks fairly decent

As a general tool these aren't bad, but if you intend to use one as a pinner/nailer I should warn you that the driver "pins" on dual-purpose tools like these are quite wide and will leave an unsightly mark on any surface you are pinning. This makes them unsuitable for neat work.

OK, I'm an "old school" chippie, so please don't ask me to do a bodge job - I didn't bring my horse today and in any case you don't seem to have a hitching rail!

My combo nailer stapler does this if you are not careful. Fine for hidden work but if I want a neat job I just dial it back so it leaves the nail a bit proud and then finish with a hammer and set.

Bit of a pain having to do that, though

Oh yeah, but the amount of fine finish work I do is so minimal it doesn't matter. If it were a regular thing I would buy a dedicated nailer. As it is I use it more for stapling than nailing anyway.
