A 23-gauge pinner might seem like a luxury tool, but use one for a whole and you’ll likely wonder how you lived without it. These pneumatic tools drive headless fasteners about the same diameter as a common sewing needle, and excel at jobs where even brad nails prove excessive, such as installing delicate trim or other materials that split easily. We tested 11 pinners—including each brand’s fasteners—to sort out their differences and find the best one for you.
