Very nice tool indeed. I have had mine since they first released it to the public but I have never had any problems with either size brads. Have you ever dropped the fastener? Check your rail for bends as it may cause the longer brads to be binding. If there are no bends, detach the rail and look to see if there is debris within the rail preventing a 2" length from advancing that would not otherwise affect the 1.5". If none of this seems to be the problem, return the brads to the store for replacement as the defect may be within the brads themself. Hope this is helpful.

My bostitch bt1855 nail gun worked fine, until it started to dry fire 2inch nails. No problem with firing quarter inch nails. Any ideas?


Have you serviced it recently? and is the gas in date? The pistons do dry out and have to be oiled with special oil.

What degree nails are used in stanley bostitch n60fn nail gun


I've repaired many nail guns and I can tell you the Stanley Bostitch N60FN uses 15 guage nails from 1 1/4" to 2 1/2" long in the FN1500 series of Bostitch nails. Nowhere does SB or any of their aftermarket dealers list what the angle of the nails is. I do know most of the SB nail guns that come through for repairs are because of damage to them from using other than SB series nails.

I inherited a Bosch T31 bradder and stapler. Couldn't get any help at Home Depot chosinga nails. Bought Porter Cable 16 Ga. 1" finish nails (PFN16100-1). Released arm and slid the nail carrier...


BOSTITCH T31-1 stapler & T31-2 STAPLER and NAILER. Both use 18 gauge (very fine gauge wire). Try using 18 gauge Bostitch staples (used in BT model bostitch staplers). Good Luck

I just bought a used Bostitch Coil Nailer. 3 1/4" nails work fine but the 2" nails will not keep feeding.


Check the spacing of the nail collation between the two nail sizes and also the spacing of the copper wires. Some nailers have a different setting for the check paws on the latch door to compensate for the thinner nails (too much clearance between the latch door and body of gun). Check manual at www.bostich.com for proper setting of check paws between nail types. Good luck

Roofing nail gun will fire but the plunger only goes out about 1/4 inch, just enough to push the nail a little. plunger stays in that position unless you touch it lightly, then it retracks.


look for a jammed nail in the nose area, UNPLUG AIR FIRST. look for a bent driver and lastly when was the last time tool was serviced, you possibly have a dry o ring. Let me know

Stanley Bostitch Coil Framing nailer blows head off of nail?


Make sure that when you run with one gun that your psi is between 90-110. You may need a kit. Is it an RN45 or 46? Go to Stanley Bostitch online and look up parts and schematics. Kits should only be about 15-20 dollars, easy to put in, and come with instructions. Lemme know. Please rate me

Bostitch nail gun loss of pressure, won't fire nail


Hello. I can help you. The nail gun you have uses 18 gauge brads. I would use only original Bostitch 18 gauge.

The one MM of difference you mention is the reason why you do not have the pressure you did have. Get rid of those 31MM brads and get the 18 gauge. Home Depot carries the Bostitch line. I would go there or to homedepot.com
