Powder actuated, stud driving tools were submitted by three different manufacturers for a comparative evaluaton. The purpose of this evaluation was to determine the underwater operating capabilities, the relative ease of operation, and the safety characteristics of each of the tools. The evaluation consisted of laboratory type performance tests and a limited subjective evaluation. Two of the tools were found to be satisfactory and were recommended for field evaluation. The other tool was determined to be unsuitable for use by a diver.
