Welcome to dickblick
The new and improved Dual Drive Elite Point Driver represents the next generation of easy-to-use, efficient picture framing point-driving tools.
The Dual Drive Elite fires stacks of either rigid or flexible inserts into all types of wood frame moldings, and features a tension adjustment for harder woods. Affordable enough for artists, yet tough enough for framers, with an improved comfort grip handle and easy-pull action, the Dual Drive Elite is the "must-have" tool for any picture framer.
For successful operation, use only authentic Logan points (F53, F54, F55 or F56). The Dual Driver Elite comes with 50 rigid point and 50 flexible points.
The F500-2 Dual Drive Elite measures 8" W × 6½" H × 2" D (20 cm × 17 cm × 5 cm).
These points allow the user to bend them after a frame has been assembled, so that the artwork can be removed without removing the point from the wood. Flexible points can be bent by hand and then bent back into place when the frame is reassembled.
Rigid points provide a more permanent solution to assembling a frame. These are more often used with long-term permanent artwork. If a backing paper is used to finish a frame a rigid point is more commonly used when assembling the frame. In order to remove the artwork from the frame the rigid point needs to be removed from the frame itself, which requires the use of tools.

Comments about Logan F500-2 Dual Drive Elite Point Driver:
The Logan point driver is one of the finest tools I have ever bought. It works great and drives points into hard wood frames without any problems. I shopped for other brands and found out this is the top of the line in point drivers!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Second time was the charm
Actually I have not tried other point drivers, so I do not know if this is better or worse than those. What I can say is, it works great. I use flexible points and they are easy to put in the point driver, and easy to "drive" into the frames. The first point driver I received as part of a kit, worked wonderfully, but when I put refill points in it, the first one was stuck or jammed. No problem, I thought, as the directions account for this situation and give instructions for removing a screw from the point driver, removing a front piece, and removing a jammed point. The problem was, this screw did not come out of the point driver for some reason. I called customer service and though this was part of a kit, they shipped just the point driver to me, before receiving the faulty one back. It arrived in a couple of days, in time for me to finish framing a piece for a deadline. The first thing I checked was whether I could get that screw out and on this driver, it came out in a jiffy. Points have not jammed yet but if they do I will have no problem removing them from the driver. Blick gets extra points (no pun int.), for including a FedEx shipping label so I did not have to pay for the return shipping . Three cheers to Blick customer service!

I bought one of these point driver guns because it had a high rating at several sights. The price and quality were wonderful. The gun came with clear instructions and even worked better than I expected after I used it on twenty five frames. the driver adjustment know on the back of the gun really works well.
Nothing but the best!
A Real Timesaver
from Seaford, DE
I used this once and loved it. I was framing using small nails and pushing them in with pliars. This tool is such a great improvement and time saver. Love it.

from Denver, CO
I haven't used a point driver before, so I'm happy that this is easy to use and works really well for the money. It did jam on the second painting I framed but I was able to pull that point out with pliers. No problem since. I'd definitely recommend it.
from Thornton, CO
I have not used one of these before so I have no comparison, however, I am extremely pleased with its ease of use. I added backing to an oil painting and fastened it to the frame neatly and quickly. I would definitely recommend it.
We love this point driver. My wife has rheumatoid arthritis in her hands but she is still able to use this driver with ease.
Love my new frame staple gun.
from Spokane, WA
Used it right away as I had a frame that I used matting on and the back wouldn't close. It worked great.
