This wiki has been updated 3 times since it was first published in January of 2019. Connecting joists is a tricky and time-consuming part of woodworking, but it doesn't have to be — assuming you own a good framing nailer, that is. However, most pneumatic options come with long hoses that can get in your way and require you to lug around a heavy air tank from site to site. The cordless selections on this list can get the job done just as effectively with much less hassle. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best cordless framing nailer on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

January 29, 2019:

While a cordless nailer makes a handy addition to any professional's tool kit, they're not really designed for full-time work. That said, the hobbyist or dedicated DIY-er can still get tons of value from one, especially on smaller jobs like doghouses. Before making a purchase, ask yourself what kind of fuel you want to be working with, whether it's compressed air, gas, or batteries, as this can affect both the machine's power and its ease-of-use.

Quincy is also knowledgeable about home improvement, as he’s had extensive experience with everything from insulation to power tools to emergency room trips, sometimes in that order. Sharing a home with three dogs and a couple of cats has forced Quincy to learn as much as he can about pet supplies, animal nutrition and, most importantly, the best ways to tackle the mountains of fur that accumulate in every corner of your home.
