Tip & How-To about Porter Cable Cable No. FR350A Rnd Head Framer Kit

Replacing the Collar (part #118 -on diagram)

I recently submitted a request about whether to use Lithium Grease or not.
I did use White Lithium Grease to coat the part prior to installation,since I assumed that the additional lubrication couldn't hurt,since the chamber itself was well oiled already.
One point to remember is ,be sure to clean any debris that may be in the chamber that might possibly interfere with proper operation of the tool,no matter how tiny it might be..
I missed a very small piece of the old plastic collar that interfered with the new Collar sealing properly,and had to take apart and reclean before reinstalling.
Working like brand new now.Big savings since a new gun would be $ 180 dollars;and the part was $ 20 dollars, and a little time to replace/fix.

Passenger sliding door latch doesn't work right. Door closes all the way except the latch doesn't pull it in or closed the last 2 inches, when I use the remote or switch

Clean the tracks and guides the door moves on, then lubricate them with a light coat of white Lithium grease, commonly called "Lubriplate". This will greatly reduce the power needed to close the door fully.

Grease dripping from bottom of microwave

sometimes when a microwave is mounted above a range some people dont always consider that you have to take into consideration that you have to go by the heat rating guidelines because it will melt the white lithium grease off the gearing and it can possibly melt some of the protective coating from the circuit boards so check if it is rated to be placed above a range and go from there

Need to know if I should coat the COLLAR (part #118)with white grease prior to installing the replacement part.

No need for grease on cylinder seal. The oil that you add during use is good enough. White grease good for piston oring and headvalve orings. Good luck
