Gangnail Press for Smaller Lumber Sizes


In the previous posting I discussed the heavy-duty Gangbuster Sr. gang nail press. Deken Power also manufactures a bench model press for joining lumber sizes 1x3, 1x4, 1x6, 2x3, 2x4 and 2x6. In the manufactured housing industry, it mounts to the side of a tops or side wall table, however, it can be used in any industry that requires quick and safe joining of lumber in the above mentioned sizes.

The Gangbuster Jr. is a self-contained unit that is foot-pedal actuated. The foot pedal is guarded for operator safety. Additional operator safety is assured with a thick Lexan Guard that does not allow the press to operate when in the open position. Strong magnets hold the gang nails in position and the operation cycle presses both gang nails into the wood simultaneously. The entire cycle takes only 7-seconds.

This product is a great way to "stretch lumber" on the fly. If you think that Gangbuster Jr. or Sr. can fit into your production process, I invite you to visit the website for a comprehensive look at the products. You can get a comprehensive look at Gangbuster Jr. by clicking here. If you want to view the Gangbuster Sr. heavy-duty gang nail press, click here.

Stay tuned.

Gangnail Press for Building Manufacturers

Deken Power's Gangbuster Sr. gang nail press delivers a whopping 42-tons of clamping pressure, simultaneously setting both top and bottom gang nails in one smooth operating cycle. The press is mainly used for joining lumber used as floor joists in building applications and can handle 2x6, 2x8 and 2x10 wood sizes.

This is a stand-alone, high-speed production press that is designed to safely maximize throughput in the manufacturing and assembly floor joists. The unique feature of this press is that it pushes both pieces of lumber together tightly for an almost seamless joint, an HUD requirement. The lumber is automatically clamped to a fence during the gang nailing operation, assuring straightness every time. The Gangbuster Sr. determines the quality of the splice joint, NOT the operator.

Safe operation is always front and center. This product complies with or exceeds federal OSHA and all state and local safety requirements. The operator pushes OSHA two-hand controls to start the operating cycle. The machine shuts itself off automatically when not in use.

You can get comprehensive information on the Gangbuster Sr. from the Deken Power website.

On my next blog, I will discuss the Gangbuster Jr., a smaller, side-mounted table unit for joining lumber sizes ranging from 1x3 through 2x6.
