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.

Problem: Nail jam due to improper degree of nails Question: How do I take apart the nail gun so as to get the jammed nails out?


Try removing stuck nails without taking apart gun. Remove remaining nails from rails. Use long piece of allen wrench or similar hard steel and grind the end to allow for jamed nail (I use a broken driver blade ground slightly thinner to allow for stuck nail). Use heavy brass or copper hammer to push driver up to top of cylinder. If after a couple of heavy blows the driver does not move, remove the head of the gun and pull out the cylinder and place the body of the gun on plywood. This will protect the head from damage. 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

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
