: It's also a play on Tools vs Weapons. The chart title is "Tools" of Thor. Thor's hammer and axe are useful weapons, but not useful for building something.[[Special:Contributions/172.68.65.228|172.68.65.228]] 14:08, 15 February 2019 (UTC)

Many nail-guns use cartridges filled with a combustible material (gunpowder or similar) rather than a supply of compressed air. A blank load of a .22 rimfire pistol cartridge is typical.

A lot of cordless tools have a sort of inverter built in. Specifically the 'brushless' ones. Just a three phase AC motor being powered by a rechargable battery: nothing to see here, move along. [[Special:Contributions/162.158.79.33|162.158.79.33]] 00:24, 14 September 2020 (UTC)
