Bosch Expands Innovative Pneumatic Fastening Family with Debut of New Finish & Trim Tools

Nailers boast best-in-class visibility, maneuverability and performance!

Mount Prospect, Ill., July 14, 2009 - Bosch Power Tools & Accessories made a stir earlier this year when the company entered the pneumatic fastening category and introduced Full Force Technology, one of the most significant innovations in the category in 30 years. This month, finish carpenters, remodelers, woodworkers, cabinet makers and other users will get their first chance to test drive the new product lineup when three Bosch finish nailers and an 18-gauge stapler begin hitting retail shelves nationwide.

Bosch's finish tools gain an especially narrow nose and slim body thanks to Full Force Technology, a patented, highly efficient air chamber design. This means unparalleled line-of-sight and precision in the applications where it matters most. The design also delivers outstanding maneuverability when working in tight spaces, superior balance and ergonomics for all day use and the best power-to-size ratio in the industry.

The new lineup includes the following four tools:

o FNA250-15: 15-gauge angled magazine finish nailer

o FNA250-16: 16-gauge straight magazine finish nailer

o BNS200-18: 18-gauge brad nailer

o STN150-18: 18-gauge finish stapler

In addition to the performance benefits associated with the Full Force Technology design, Bosch's new tools are packed with features designed to protect work surfaces and produce great looking finish work. All four tools feature tool-less adjustable depth-of-drive, dry fire lockout, in-line self cleaning air filters and no-mar nose covers to protect delicate workpieces.

Each of Bosch's new finish tools also includes a tool-less selectable trigger, to enable users to switch between bump and sequential modes of operation. The convenient tool-less Quick Clear jam removal system is also standard. All of the tools come complete with a sturdy carrying case, safety glasses and the no-mar tip.

Bosch's new finish tools are currently available through authorized Bosch retailers nationwide. Additional Bosch pneumatic fastening products are slated to become available in the next few weeks. To find out more, users may visit or call 877-BOSCH-99.
