I've been using my Pushmaster for several years and I have been extremely satisfied with the performance of this tool. Hardwood is definitely a lot more difficult to penetrate but I've yet to have resorted to using a mallet. Most of the frame material I use is softer wood and the frames are also mostly smaller ones.
After gluing the corners I use an adjustable aluminum 4-corner picture framing clamp to join the frame pieces with the back of the frame facing up. The clamp should be tightened securely. Then I wait about 5-10 minutes for the glue to set a bit before I insert the v-nails. It's very important to have the frame clamp resting on a heavy duty work bench or countertop when driving the v-nails.
After inserting the nails I wait another 10-15 minutes and then remove the frame from the clamp and clean up the excess glue. I reclamp the frame with the front facing up and leave it overnight. Joint strength is more than adequate.

I was skeptical about how this product would work but in making a couple of picture frames it has been very easy and provides a strong joint. I would definitely recommend this to anyone doing framing, it will be a stable in my work.

I saw a demonstration and it worked so well, I got one. In real life, it isn't so good. Soft wood it is ok. Hard wood can be a nightmare. I've had them split a few beautiful frames and had many of the joint pieces just bend in the middle. Then the core magnet broke in the middle. It just sets in my cabinet. The old ways are better.

I jumped right in but was a little disappointed. First of all, if you plan to use anything but the softest of wood for your frame, forget about the name "Pushmaster" and have a mallet available. No way could I push a nail into fir.  My only question is that since I almost exclusively use hard wood for my frames. How long can I expect the Pushmaster to last under the mallet? The grip is good however and don't make a mistake. You'll never get the nails out without damaging the frame. All in all, it does what it is supposed to do.
