Choosing Your Pneumatic Pin Nailer

A pneumatic pin nailer is a universally awesome tool lending a helping hand to everyone from serious carpenters to weekend-warriors. Because these tools are so versatile though, there are, by consequence, many to choose from. Finding the pinner that best compliments you and your individual specifications can be a chore, so I’ve compiled some information on the industry’s most heavy-duty, light-duty, and affordably priced pneumatic pin nailers. Researching the best of the best, these reviews are designed to help you find the best air pin nailer for your needs.

For the most heavy-duty pneumatic nailing, Senco’s line of pneumatic tools is one that truly never fails to impress; with innovation, design, and all-around style, Senco nailers, like the FinishPro 11, a 23 gauge pin nailer, remain in a league of their own. Perfect for your most detailed and intricate projects, this micro pinner is both lightweight and powerful with the extra punch for effective use in harder materials. Additionally, pins fasten securely and leave behind them a virtually invisible hole with no splitting to your materials. Not only is the tool durable with an aluminum housing and tough components, but it is also designed for optimal operator comfort.

The pinner drives 23 gauge, headless micro pins from 1″ – 2″ in length with the power to slide through tough materials while also not splitting or marring your projects and as the tool weighs only 2.9 lbs, it is extremely comfortable to operate throughout awkward or continuous work. Ultimately, with comfort, precision, and power, the pinner is ideal for molding, cabinets, trim, and etc, and pricing at about $240 – $250, the nailer is definitely an investment, but one that will continuously deliver professional, powerful, high-performance results.

Senco’s FinsihPro10 (23 gauge) pin nailer is another example of Senco’s line of brilliant pneumatic machines. At only 2.35 lbs the tool is ultra compact and lightweight to ensure strained, awkward, or continuous use is simpler and more comfortable for operators. Ideal for the most intricate finish, trim, and remodeling work, the FinishPro 10 fastens securely while still only making a virtually imperceptible hole in your materials. a hardened steel driver contributes to overall longevity, and with a smooth metal cap to protect your working materials, the pinner, with durabilty and delicate precision, yields results impeccable to the slightest detail. To ensure you are safe from a frustratingly empty   magazine , the tool has a low load indicator, and is designed to load easily. The nailer shoots 1/2″ – 1″ fasteners, and with the help of a rear exhaust system,your work is protected from damaging oil and dust. Altogether, this pin nailer is built with sophistication for smooth, powerful, comfortable use in even hard woods and rough materials, and pricing at just about $130, the nailer is a smart, affordable addition to your tool repertoire.

Porter-Cable is another superior performer in the world of pneumatics; built with durable innovation, and brilliant speed and power, Porter-Cable’s PIN100 1″ pin nailer is uncommonly awesome in a variety of tough applications. Shooting 23 gauge micro pin nails from 1/2″ to 1″ long, the tool automatically adjusts to different fastener lengths to ensure that your pins are not only permanently tight, but always in the right place as well. Additionally, the tool’s bottom load  magazine  holds 170 micro pin nails, and because it also has a nail reload indicator, empty  magazines  will be the least of your worries. The nailer is extremely lightweight weighing only 2 lbs; this compact design provides optimized access into tight spaces, corners, and awkward spots – ultimately keeping you more comfortable and your materials more protected from the potential dents or dings of a bulkier tool. The pinner’s rear exhaust port channels debris, tool oil, and other contaminates away from your workpieces, and pricing from about $100 – $110, the tool is both professionally awesome and quite affordable.

On another hand, while this Air Locker tool is best suited for light-duty users and light-duty applications, the Air Locker P630 (23 gauge) micro pin nailer is a great tool at an astounding value. The tool’s components are built for durability and because the tool comes both with a case, as well as a replacement driver and o-ring kit, craftsmen can be certain the tool will remain kicking for a good, long while. The nailer automatically adjusts for fastener lengths from 1/2″ through 1-3/16″, rendering the tool always accurate as well as simple to operate for any degree of user. The P630 features a bottom load  magazine  and an adjustable exhaust to ensure oil and any other contaminates are directed away from your working materials, and although this nailer doesn’t necessarily perform on par with heavy-duty Senco or Porter-Cable models, the tool definitely carries its own weight. Ultimately, pricing at $59, the P630 offers light users a strong tool with the drive to complete light applications with notable high-performance and a ridiculously low price.

In the end, one of these pneumatic pin nailers is certain to meet your individual needs and specifications. With the power to keep your pins professionally secured, and the precision to do it cleanly and delicately, one of these pinners is your ticket to professional, beautiful results.

So You’ve Written A Book?

I was speaking with a friend recently and learned that she’s writing her fourth book. She’s not a great writer and she addresses only one topic but she self-publishes, which guarantees that as long as she has the money to print them, her books will always be available. She sells a few copies, mostly to people who know her and share an interest in her topic. I laughed and said that I’ll never write a book. And yet…

Writing a business book can be good business for Solopreneurs and all organization leaders. If the book is reasonably well-written, it can become a powerful self- marketing tool that confers to the author an assumption of expertise and leadership ability that can pay dividends for the duration of one’s career. A business book has the potential to define and enhance your personal brand, get you invited to give interviews and best of all, generate leads that bring in more business.

You might assume that writing a book is an all-consuming process and my (scant) experience as a book editor causes me to agree. If budget allows, consider hiring a ghost writer, who will interview you and put your insights and anecdotes on paper. Otherwise, expect to work enormously hard as you copiously research, outline and write your manuscript.

Successful authors often recommend that first-timers approach their proposed book as they would a new business launch. Prepare to spend a few thousand dollars to self-publish, because unless you have a national or very strong local reputation, no traditional publishing house will sign you. Brace yourself for low sales and expect to buy dozens of copies of the book yourself and give signed copies to good friends, family members and clients. Here are a few suggestions that will help you to evaluate the decision to become an author:


Your biggest challenge may be choosing the subject. Content matters and authors are advised to have something relevant to say to potential readers. Choose a subject that is personally fulfilling, one you will not mind speaking about regularly, because to promote the book that subject will be discussed ad nauseum. When using the book to get yourself speaking engagements, that topic will be the center of your talk. Basic options for your theme include:

  • A creation story, an inspirational memoir that details how you either overcame adversity or bounced along on good fortune and quick wit and used your competitive advantages to launch and sustain a successful enterprise. The first approach is sincere and compelling, the second ought to be humorous and fun.
  • A how-to book shares your unique expertise and shows readers how they can become better marketers, sales people, financial managers, Entrepreneurs — you get the idea.


As noted, you will self-publish your book. Hire a content editor to eliminate continuity errors in the narrative; a proofreader to ensure correct spelling and grammar; a book designer to place text onto the pages, perform graphics work and design your book covers and spine; and a professional photographer and make-up artist to ensure that you look fabulous in your book photo. Most self-publishing houses offer these services at additional costs, but you may be better off hiring a team of independents whose loyalty will belong to you.


Develop a comprehensive marketing plan that will get your book noticed and validated. Consider hiring a literary PR specialist, if you have the budget. Create a website and Facebook page for your book and film a podcast that features you speaking about the book. Contact the local access cable station and inquire about you appearing on a program that features segments about local business people; ditto for local radio stations (think Sunday morning radio). Send a press release to local newspapers and magazines to announce the book and propose yourself as an interview subject.

When you publish your book, you’ll realize that becoming an author is one of the most significant achievements of your life. The book will become your ultimate business card and will give readers an impressive introduction to you and the enterprise that you created and lead. Publishing a book is an event known to bring prestige and momentum to one’s business and brand.

Thanks for reading,

What Does the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval Mean?

What is Good Housekeeping?

Good Housekeeping (GH) started in 1885 as a magazine with a mission. “A mission to fulfill compounded of about equal portions of public duty and private enterprise… to produce and perpetuate perfection as may be obtained in the household.” To achieve those high standards, GH Magazine made a commitment to only advertising the very best products. Still to this day, for GH to even accept advertising from any product, the GH Research Institute must first approve. From that point it has the opportunity to receive the ultimate vote of confidence – The GH Seal.

What is a Good Housekeeping Seal & What Does it Mean?

Since 1909, the Seal has backed worthy products while simultaneously validating consumer purchases. According to GH, its seal is “an emblem of the magazine’s consumer policy.” That consumer policy promises a full refund or replacement of a defective product within two years of its purchase, given that the product has been backed with a Seal. That’s one heck of a promise, considering that GH, and not the company that created the product, is picking up the cost of a refund or replacement. That being said, GH doesn’t just go handing out their stamp of approval to just any old product.

How does a Product Earn the Good Housekeeping Seal?

The first step in receiving a GH Seal is to apply. If accepted, the product and its promises will now be tested at the GH Research Institute (GHRI) by researchers, scientists, engineers and nutritionists according to its area for intended use. The GHRI is a product-evaluation laboratory that tests everything from electronics to cosmetics, to the very recipes they print in their magazine.

The Green Good Housekeeping Seal

Keeping up with the energy conservation movement, GH added a new kind of seal in 2009. The Green GH Seal is intended to help consumers, wishing to make strides towards an energy-efficient and environmentally friendly household, in finding the products that actually back up their “green” claims. Once a product receives the Seal, it could then apply for the Green GH Seal. From a product’s manufacturing, all the way to its packaging and performance, the GHRI rigorously tests applicants according to their category’s requirements. Electronics, paper goods, beauty and cleaning products, food, beverages, paint and coatings can all be tested for environmental responsibility and impact, as well as social responsibility.

Why GH Seal Products?

Trusting the Seal is an especially good idea when remodeling or renovating your home. A Seal guarantees longevity and as-promised performance. Windows, doors and large appliances can all be found with both the GH and Green GH Seal. When you choose a product with the Seal, you’re choosing a product backed by a company with over 100 years of consumer advocacy. Look for the seal. Shop confidently.

Depreciation is a loss incurred on account of use of fixed assets in the business. Generally, it is charged from profit and loss account at a fixed percentage. The students should exercise great care as regards the rate of depreciation. If rate is without words ‘per annum’, then the rate will be taken irrespective of the period of accounts. This is very important when the period of accounts is less than one year. On the other hand, if the rate of depreciation is ‘per annum’ the depreciation should be calculated on the assets with due consideration to the period for which the asset has been used in business during the year. In case of additions to assets during the year, it is advisable to ignore depreciation on additions if the date of additions is not given. Same rule shall hold good for the sale of assets during the year.

It is important to emphasize the rule that balance appearing in the trial balance is taken to one and only one place. It may either be trading account or profit and loss account or balance sheet. Since stock at the end is an asset, it will betaken to balance sheet. On the other hand, so long as there is stock in trade, account for that must be kept open and thus be taken to the assets side of balance sheet.

Conversational Hypnosis For Business Owners

Nowadays economy is in everybody’s mouth. There’s no doubt anymore that we are in a recession. If you look at the headlines in the newspapers, it’s all about the economy. And while the finger-pointing goes on, and everybody looks for who’s to blame, some people are actually amping up their business, taking action, helping to grow their dream.

If you allow the negative environment that we are currently in to spread through out your mindset then your business will most likely go down the drain.

But if you manage to be both realistic and positive and action-oriented, then you have what it takes to come out of this recession as a big winner.

Many of today’s most successful corporations were started in a down economy. Huge corporations like IBM.

But let’s look at what all this means for you, and what hypnosis has to do with it. In order to succeed with your business, you need to share your ideas, you need to spread the word about what it is that your business can do for other people. You have to bring the benefits out there.

If you can communicate to enough people why they should do business with you, and give them a reason that actually shows them why they would benefit from it and why they are losing out if they don’t take advantage of what it is that you have to offer, then your business will succeed.

Let’s face it, even though everybody’s shouting about how they don’t have enough money these days, there actually is more money in circulation right now than there ever has been before. During a recession money doesn’t get destroyed, it just gets reallocated. That means it goes out of some people’s pockets and goes into somebody else’s pockets.

But people are still spending money. People are still going to the cinema. People are still eating in restaurants. People are still buying new clothes. People are still spending hundreds of dollars on new tech gadgets. Money is still being spent. It’s less than it was before, but it’s still being spent. And oftentimes it’s being spent on stuff that people really don’t need. Why is that?

It’s because those companies have created the desire in a lot of of people to possess what it is that they sell. And you can do that too, without a multimillion dollar advertising budget. All you need is the power of conversational hypnosis.

Conversational hypnosis allows you to put hypnosis into every single one of your messages. If you just talk to somebody, have a casual chat with them, you can hypnotize them. It’s a great way to get attention from your marketplace.

Because a problem right now is that everybody is suffering from information overload. Attention is expensive. If you want to advertise on TV, you will need millions. Of course you can advertise in   magazines  or do online marketing, but you would still have to spend a lot of money to do really well with that. And you don’t know whether you will make a return on that investment, or whether you will go broke.

5 Ways to Get a Dead Spy Pen to Work

If you have a Spy Pen, sometimes it just appears to be either stuck with the light on, or dead and won’t turn on. We wrote this report to show you some of the tricks we found to getting your it to work again.

1. Perform A Hard Reset

The majority of the time, just inserting the end of a paper clip in the opening below the status light on the back, and performing a hard reset, will get your Spy Pen working. Just bend a small paper clip end out, and insert straight into the opening. When you meet resistance, push lightly, and you can feel the reset button depressed.

Make sure it goes straight in, and not at an angle, or you could damage some of the components inside. Let go and try to turn it on.

2. Rule Out The USB Cable

If you are using a USB cable to either connect the Spy Pen to your computer, or to the 110V wall charger adapter, one day the cable will fail. If you use the USB cable because you can’t connect the pen directly to the computer, try just plugging it directly into the computer.

Don’t use a USB hub, as sometimes there is not enough power for the it; just connect it directly to the computers USB port. On some computers, use the USB port on the back, as front USB ports are sometimes weaker.

3. Rule Out The 110V Wall Charger

Just like the USB cable, the 110V wall charger adapter will also fail at some point; so if it does not seem to take a charge, try charging it for 3 hours in the computers USB port. If the status light is on while its charging, its getting electricity to charge the battery.

4. Put The Spy Pen Back In Video Mode

Several Spy Pens have switches to go to photo mode, or voice activation mode. If you move the switch to change modes, and you do not move it back to video mode, the computer will say it is not recognized. Try moving the switch back to the original position.

5. Erase & Reformat The Spy Pen

If the Spy Pen shows up as a removable drive on your PC, just right click on the icon and let go on “Format.” Then check the “Quick Format” button, then hit OK. The drive will be erased, and reformatted. This usually takes care of any pens that make it this far.

On an Apple computer, use Disc Utility to erase the drive and format as MS DOS 32. Then eject properly; on a Mac, right click on the drive and select eject. On a PC, click on the green Left arrow down at the lower right part of the monitor, then click on eject to properly eject the device.

That’s our report on “5 Ways To Get A Dead Spy Pen To Work.” If your pen still won’t work, and you purchased it from us, you have a 365-day no B.S. replacement policy. If not, you will need to contact the company you got it from.

It often involved searching through   magazines  and other publications and picking out the free stuff and sweepstakes that looked genuine and easy to participate in. Today, however, thanks to the Internet, finding lots of great free stuff and online contests is a breeze, and it’s much easier for a person to take advantage of some great opportunities to order free samples, win money, and take part in some really fun sweepstakes.

No matter what your tastes, I guarantee that you can find websites that will help you register for contests and offers that could get you lots of free products related to that topic.

When you look for free stuff and sweepstakes sites using search engines, don’t only click on the first few results that show up.

As you find new sites that you think are a good fit for you, bookmark them so that you can return to them in the future.

There are plenty of free stuff, contests and sweepstakes offers online that don’t require any kind of financial commitment from you. If a site asks you to pay money or provide credit card information, it’s best to keep it off of your bookmarks and keep searching.

Some sites may ask you for information such as your email address or website address. This request is a bit more reasonable, but be sure that the site has policies in place that won’t lead to your information being given to other parties. Many online contests or sweepstakes require that you provide an email address so that you can be contacted when you win free stuff, but don’t allow the site to spam your inbox with unrelated offers and emails.
