Oiling Your Pneumatic Nailer or Stapler Properly

Oil tools daily -

Many pneumatic tools use engines that require the use of rubber O-rings and those O-rings require lubrication in order to function properly. The following points will ensure that you are oiling your pneumatic tool properly:

1. Read your instruction manual and make sure that your pneumatic tool requires oil, and if so, the manual will tell you the recommended amount of oil and when to oil the tool. Some pneumatic tools are oil-less and may not require oil.

2. If you are using your pneumatic tool in a harsh climate, including those climates that are extremely high in humidity or cold temperatures, be sure to check with the tool manufacturer. These climates may require the use of oils
that are designed specifically for these climates.

3. Tools should be oiled prior to every use, and they should also be oiled prior to storage. Tools that sit in storage for an extended period of time without oil have a higher chance of drying out, thus damaging internal parts.

fox nailerfirering pin not retacting fully

The majority of the time this is caused by damaged or broken o-rings inside the gun. The rebuild kit for the Grip Rite GRTBN200 is part number GRRBK100. Make sure to lubricate the o-rings as you put the gun back together and always put a squirt of pneumatic oil in the gun before using it to keep the o-rings lubricated.
