How do i control the depth the nail shoots in a bostitch coil nailer

The bostitch nailer pictured along along with your question is a RN46 roofing coil nailer. It has a dial on the front of the nose for adjusting depth. Some older nailers (roofing nailers) do no have a means of adjusting so were set at the factory for best performance. The question of depth usually comes up when lower bumper fails and the nail is driven too deep. Easy test. Remove nails and find a very soft piece of wood. Dry fire the gun against soft wood and measure how deep the driver is entering the wood. Harder test. Remove the head and use any handy tool to push driver down to bottom. Measure how far the driver extends past nose (should be about 1/8 to 3/16). If more, replace the lower bumper. Good luck

Why does my hitachi roofing nailler skip nails every 5-7 shots, and there is a leak in the back but o-rings are fine and nothing seems to be broken?

Try using it differently. It's more of a bouncing method than a pushing method. Also use good quality nails. Fix the leak it will help it recoil better.Don' use excessive amounts of oil.

I have a craftsman roof nailer with plastic cover for nails broken where can i get one to fit

Best place for replacement parts is the address below.
Ez to order from and usually only takes 10 to 14 days to get the parts. Click on Hitachi logo then select coil nailers, then your model number. For local parts, look in the yellow page directory for fasteners. Fastener companies that sell nails and other supplies to contractors also have parts for Hitachi nailers. Check with several. Some will even repair the nailer for you if you buy nails from them.
Good luck.

Raymond - Fixya does not carry or sell tools.

I recommend you go to an online retailer like Search for "electric roofing nailer", or just "electric nailer" and see what you find. is good source for tool specifications and customer reviews. You don't have to buy from Amazon, but its a good place to research what's out there.

I can tell you one thing...electric (corded) nailers that shoot a nail of that size are uncommon. If you're looking for an alternative to pneumatic, other options include gas-driven (takes a small gas canister - usually a butane mix)...a common brand for this is Paslode. Another option is a cordless battery nailer - I believe Bostitch makes a cordless roofing nailer.

Hope this helps.

Fires the first nail and will not fire the second. But makes the hit on the wood, so I know it shoots but it's the nail that will not move into the chamber to go next. Oiled the parts and still the same...

Either the nail thingy that pushes the nails through is worn, broke, or shot, or you have the wrong nails in there and it is not grabbing them as it should, I think the part is broken on the inside, can't really tell without seeing it, but if it spins free, you need to check it out. Might be able to weld it. Or just replace it. Hope this helps.

Can i use any brand coil nailes in my nv 45ab2 coil nailer

Yes. Roofing nailers all use about the same size and spacing on coil nails. You will find that Harbor Freight is about 1/2 the price of Home Depot or Lowes for those nails.

Bostitch M111 not driving the staples far enough into the floor.

When this happens it is most likely the piston has untreaded itself from the piston stem. This will cause the piston to hit the bumper before it drives the nail all the way down. You must dismantle the tool and tighten this piston up. Or take it to your nearest Bosttich service center its a pretty quick fix.

Hope this helps
