Air-Powered Nailer
An adult male is using the tool as described to shingle a roof.

The Air-Powered Nailer uses pressurized air to drive nails or staples. It will accommodate an assortment of nail sizes and types, ranging from fine finishing nails for carpentry to short roofing nails for shingling to long, heavy-duty framing nails for building structures. The nails/staples come in cartridges or coils that are loaded into the nailer. The device is held firmly against the surface to be nailed and the trigger pulled, which releases a burst of air forcing the nail/staple into the wood.

Estimated Cost Cost range: See below
