New Oregon subscriber here...

Greets to everyone, new Oregon subscriber here. I live a short drive SE of Salem and am retired from a 30+ year career in electronics and a few in IT. Naturally, as a diversion from work, I’ve accumulated a few wood tools over the years. Actually too many tools. (Ignore that last fragment, my wife snuck it in) My latest acquisition and current quandary is a new-to-me drywall screw gun. I have no idea what, brand-wise, it is. I saw ‘Made in Germany’ and thought first of AEG. The tags are worn a bit and can’t see any names, even the numbers are scratched a bit. It works to the degree that it drives screws, at least into wood. I have not tried it in drywall to see how the depth gauge works, if it has one. We’ll see… I have Googled for images until the cows have come back to roost and have turned up nothing. (Sorry for my sad humor, wife thinks it’s sad too…) Am I ok to post pictures as a new user? Thanks for any help~! Best, ~Michael

Welcome. Good folks and tons of information. Just aks.
I was in Oregon several years ago. Went from Portland to Bend. Amazing to go from the tall pines to the high desert. Took tons of photos.

Welcome to the forum, Michael! Add your location to your profile so it shows in the side panel. Add your first name to your signature line so it shows in each post.

We like photos so show us your shop, tools, projects, etc. whenever you're ready. And jump in on discussions when you're ready to do that.

Always good to see more Oregon people on here, we don't get too many. Assuming you picked up you're screw gun there for a reason, what sort of projects do you have going on mate?

It may be Moe but it's certainly not lighthearted, just the opposite.

Stayton, Aumsville, Sublimity, Turner, Scio... ?



I used to live in Portland but moved three years ago to the extreme NE corner of the state, an hour east of Baker City (Halfway).



I have bamboo fly maker friends in your area, one lives in Stayton, the other in Aumsville.



BTW, welcome to the forum and I have no clue how to help you with the screw gun.

Ah thanks for asking, yes I did, I got it for a project I’m finishing up. I live on a small acreage and there’s an endless stream of projects around here, the last one, a work/storage building was finished with OSB up to 4 ft, then a peg board wrap. It made for great tool hanging and such. The next building interior is going to be finished with wallboard, so when I saw the screw gun at a local sale I grabbed it. All I knew about it was it drove screws. Now I know there’s more to driving screws into sheetrock then just driving it in. It needs to be driven in correctly, i.e. the correct depth, and therein lays my issue. I can’t ever seem to keep from taking things apart, it’s in my DNA, so I want to clean it up, lube it and generally check it over. I generally like to have literature available so as to know proper operation and adjustments. I’ll get some pictures posted pronto…

Here are a few shots of the screw gun... At first, I was thinking AEG because of the 'Made in Germany' tag but... who knows.
Any thoughts would be appreciated~!~
