A fastener driving tool capable of locating a preformed hole in a first workpiece and driving a nail therethrough and into a second workpiece to attach the first workpiece to the second workpiece. The tool comprises a body having a main portion and a handle portion, a guide body, a drive track in the guide body, a driver axially shiftable in the drive track, a fastener containing magazine, a magazine cover, a manual trigger, and a trigger enabling safety. The magazine cover is supported by the guide body and the handle portion of the tool and contains the magazine. The magazine communicates with the drive track and is supported by a slide captively mounted on the guide body and axially shiftable therealong. The magazine is shiftable within the magazine cover in directions parallel to the drive track axis between a lower position wherein the forwardmost fastener in the drive track extends below the nose of the guide body serving as a hole finding probe, and an upper position wherein the safety, attached to the sleeve, enables the trigger and the guide body nose rests upon the first workpiece with the drive track aligned with the pre-formed hole and the tool is ready to be actuated by the trigger.
