    Well the big storms came through Atlanta the other day and knocked down part of the privacy fence. It is mounted to my deck so it tore that up, too. It is going to a b!tch to to get it lined up and nailed back into place, so I'm thinking this is a good time to buy a new tool. I was looking a these from HF: http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/displayitem.taf?Itemnumber=46240 Seemed like the best one. But there are these two also: http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/displayitem.taf?Itemnumber=4041 or http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/displayitem.taf?Itemnumber=91054

    Opinions please. I do not do construction work and this will not get much use, but I don't want it to fall appart before I finish. A friend of mine has one that looks like the first one, but he moved to TN and I need to get this fixed in the next day or two. His worked fine, but he didn't use it much either. $150 is what I'm thinking is the most I will spend (of course I'd rather spend less). I checked the local pawn shops today and everything looked beat. So its probably going tobe HF or Northern.

    Dont know if you allready purchased, but I would recommend picking up a Senco or something like that from a pawn shop as long as they let you make sure it works. They usually only go bad when the seals blow out. Usually the construction tools that go through the pawnshops are some of the best because unfortunately they are all pretty much stolen of jobsites, out of work trucks... hence the paint on them(owners mark).
