First off some nail guns do not need to be oiled, but the gun you have listed does need to be oiled you just drip a few drops of oil in the hole where the air hose connects to the gun, but make sure that you are useing the right oil make sure it is pneumatic oil for air nailers. the gun should have came with some oil if it was bought new if not you can get the oil at Lowes, Home Depot, or any other home improvement store

I don't have a lot to go on here. Can you describe what does happen? Is there any release of air at all? You can try checking the o-rings for leaks. There are o=ring kits available for under $20 that contain all of the o-rings. Also, proper lubrication is required for operation. If the main plunger chamber does not have enough lubrication, the plunger won't move properly and not set the nail.

Please update this with any details you can.

Thanks,
Dan

Bostitch f21pl air leaking out exhaust


Usually, air leaking from head is caused by worn/ broken seal # 163823 that sits on top of the cylinder. Remove head and observe seal. If it looks complete, however it fits loosly on the cylinder, use rtv sealeant under seal. Otherwise replace. Good luck

My Bostitch F21PL Round Head nail g few times then air comes from the vent on top then i take the head off then clean it then it works for just 3 more times


Examine all the parts in the head where orings make contact. Fine scratches on metal or plastic parts where orings contact will cause the problem that you describe. Plastic parts and aluminum will scratch easily causing air to leak past. The gun works after cleaning because the oil or paste that you used is making seal. Once oil is displaced, pressure leaks past. Remove fine scratches with 400 grit paper until very smooth or replace scratched parts. Vinyl seals that snap into place must fit very snugly. If vinyl seals turn easily, remove them and clean off oil, then apply RTV sealeant and re-install (let RTV dry for 24 hours before retest). If aluminum parts have a rather deep groove where orings make contact, replace because oring will no longer make good contact(you could try wrapping oring groove with teflon tape then install oring, this wil bring out oring a bit). Good luck

Do I need to lubricate my Bostitch F21PL nailer from time to time? The reason I asked is, I got this new nailer. Installed Galvanized 2.5 inches nails from Bostitch and with the metal connector installed....


This is a fantastic nailer, very powerfull. Information about your nailer can be found below.

http://www.bostitch.com/default.asp?CATEGORY=BOS_FRAM_NAILER&TYPE=PRODUCT&PARTNUMBER=F21PL&SDesc=21%26%23176%3B+Industrial+Framing+Nailer+System

You should not need to lube the rails for the nails to feed. Your nailer uses plastic collated nails and should travel very easily inside the rails. I would remove all the nails and check for broken pieces of plastic from nail strips. Feeder should feel snug within rails and not wobble and spring should pull tight. When you install the nails do not release feeder against the nails with force as this could break the plastic strips and cause jam. Nail not feeding is usually caused by wrong nails, weak pusher spring or pusher guides broken /missing. Simple test for proper nails.
Place a strip of nails on the outside of the rails aligned with the edge of the rails and see if the first nail is perfectly aligned with the path of the driver. If the head of the first nail is angled back slightly from the path of the driver, the nails will not feed properly. Good luck.

How do i load the fastners into the f21pl?


Pull the nail tension slider towarrd the back of the nailer. It should click into place. Load the nails throught the slot on the top of the long flat magazine. Press the tabs on the slider together to release it and it will provide the tension on the nails.

Contact head won't retract...seems to be stuck


Two things come to mind, both require disassembly.

First i would clean the area, and then relube the contact head. While cleaning that area and relubing, check the o-ring and the surrounding seals, they may be not properly alligned or sitting perfect.
