Sounds like the rubber seals have dry rotted prob from not oiling it enough, but you should be able to go on the Bostitch web site and order new rubber seals for the gun

I have an n80sb air is coming out around the trigger? Thanks


This is usually indicative of a defective trigger. This can be replaced. First though, try checking all the Orings. If the unit has not completed the cycle to the "ready" position, there could be an air leak. Please visit the site listed below to get a diagram of the entire unit with replacement part numbers etc. the diagram should assit you in dis-assembling the unit to clean and re-oil it.

I have a bostitch ridge runner that leaks air badly out of the trigger and wondering how to take out the plastic trigger in the gun. Also what would be the cause of the air leak


The air leak can be one of a few things. FIrst make sure that you have added some pneumatic oil to the air stream. This will lubricate the o-rings and make a tight seal. If that fails to resolve it, repalce the o-rings. (kits available for around $20). Next, woul dbe the trigger assembly itself. These triggers wear over time and are easily replaced.

See the website below for parts and a good diagram of the construction of the gun. You should be able to replace the parts by following the diagrams.

Please note that the exactmodel number is required to get hte correct diagram.

Hope this helps,
Dan

Stanley Framing Nailer Leaking Air Around Trigger


Your tva11 valve can be repaired easily if you have a source for orings. I purchase orings from several companies including lowes (in plumbing dept sold in 10 pack for about dollar), www.grainger.com (oring kit metric, cost about $10) harbor freight (oring kit about $5), also orings are sold by size at bearing companies. I have repaired many of these valves by just cleaning debris and lubing with silicone paste (sold at lowes in plumbing dept used for lubing faucet orings). To attempt repair of valve, remove nails, remove roll pin that holds trigger (3mm) to expose tva11 valve. Mark position of valve in body of gun because the retaining pins fit thru an indention in the valve. Next remove roll pin/s that hold tva11 valve, they are just above the valve in the body of the gun(3mm x 30mm). You will need to apply air pressure to gun to remove the valve, however use heavy glove to catch valve because it can come out with force. (try lowering air pressure to gun for this procedure. With valve in hand, use marker to mark position of inner part in relation to outer, remove the two pins that hold valve together. Push out the inner cylinder and look at the middle oring(usually the problem, could be loose or cut) , If cut or loose replace and lube with silicone paste and re-assemble. Check outer orings for nicks, replace as necessary (usually good). Clean valve port, lube port, then re-install valve into gun and insert temporary retaining pin and test for leak. You should be good to go. Good luck and email if you have questions.

N80sb-1 stanley bostitch framing gun.


Yes your nailer will drive other sizes of nails. For info and parts go to www.bostitch.com and look for the support tab then select service parts. Here you will find parts list and manual. To remove the tva11 trigger valve remove the retainer pin (the pin is 3mm) for the trigger and remove trigger. Next remove roll pin/pins that retain trigger valve. Use heavy glove to catch trigger valve as you apply air pressure to gun. The valve could pop out with great force so try lowering the pressure to gun. Before installing the new valve, check the opening for sharp edges which will cut orings. Good Luck and email if you have more questions.
