Tool Features Innovative Bosch Technology, Delivers Superior Control, Precision

Atlanta, August 22, 2012  Bosch Power Tools is answering market demands for affordable, professional-grade small nailers with the launch of the Bosch FNS138-23 23-Gauge Pin Nailer. The new nailer combines dry fire lock-out technology, enhanced ergonomics and high power to provide users with the ultimate in precision and durability. Ideal for fastening 1X stock, the FNS138-23 is the perfect finishing tool for cabinet installers, high-end woodworking enthusiasts, trim carpenters, remodelers and general contractors.

A prime example of Bosch innovation, the FNS138-23 is the first pin nailer to feature Zero-Nail™ dry fire lockout, eliminating blank firing. With this new technology, users know that the work piece is secured, when the nailer fires, saving time and increasing productivity.


Superior ergonomics are defined by the FNS138-23 – with its narrow nose, slim body and recessed magazine, the new pin nailer delivers excellent line of sight for greater accuracy and easily grants access to tight corners and spaces. An over mold on the tool’s housing prevents damage to any work piece while resting the pin nailer between applications.


The optimized drive system provides ten percent more power allowing users to countersink nails in work pieces for a smooth finish. The FNS138-23 also features an auto length setting ensuring the correct nail positioning in the magazine while a low nail indicator on the side of the tool shows users when nail supply is beginning to run low. An in-line self cleaning air filter keeps debris away from the valve and o-ring, improving the life of the tool, while the exhaust is muffled keeping it away from the user during use, reducing noise and allowing professionals to enjoy a clean work environment.


Retailing for a suggested price of $159, the Bosch FNS138-23 23-Gauge Pin Nailer kit includes safety goggles, a carrying case for easy transport, no mar tip and a 1/4-inch air fitting. It is now available through authorized dealers nationwide. To find out more or to locate a dealer, visit www.boschtools.com, www.boschfullforce.com or call 877-BOSCH-99.
