Can I use 30 degree nails in my 34 degree nail gun?

I can't find anything closer than 30 degree for my 34 degree cliphead nail gun. I need to use ring shank nails.

I would check the tension on the spring that pulls the nails into position. Make sure that when the rack of nails is out, that the loading mechanism is reaching the top of the gun. I would also recommend that you oil the gun prior to each use. If you are using it regularly through outt the day, then I would definitely recommend oiling it through out the day.

SOURCE: Problem: Nail jam due to improper degree of nails

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

Can you use 30 degree nails in a Porter Cable FC350 34 degree nailer?


Yes, you can use 30 degree clipped head nails in the Porter-Cable FC350 framing nailer. The FC350A and FC350B nailers are newer models that specify the 30-34 degree clipped head nails. Make sure that the nails are between 2' - 3 1/2" in length. The manuals for each of the later models do not explicitly list the 30 degree nails. Their specifications page do list the 30 degree nails. See http://www.portercable.com/Products/ProductDetail.aspx?ProductID=11542 and https://www.homedepot.com/p/Porter-Cable-3-1-2-in-30-Degree-to-34-Degree-Clipped-Head-Framing-Nailer-FC350B/203555581 . The manual for the FC350 is available here: https://www.manualslib.com/manual/132288/Porter-Cable-Fc350.html . It is the same as the manual for the FC350B, https://www.homedepot.com/catalog/pdfimages/7e/7e0d0f88-a9e7-4411-ad0f-7fc5c1c1fbaa.pdf .

I hope this helps.

Whats the difference between a roofing nail gun and an ordinary nail gun ?


A roofing nail is designed to be easier to be removed, they have a smooth shank and wide head that hold down shingles. A siding nail has a ring shank. A roofing nailer is used to quickly pin down shingles across a roof, the depth at which they are drive in is generally shallower than a siding nail.
You can read a little more about roofing nailers here Best Roofing Nailer Shooting From the Hip Woodworking Tool Guide.

Can My FC 350 A used 28 degree nails


The manual for your gun specifies 34-degree nails from 2 to 3 1/2 inches long. 28-degree, wire collated nails are a Stanley-Bostitch thing and they only work in their nail guns, they will not work in your nail gun. You need 34-degree, paper-tape collated nails. I know Senco framing nails will work in your gun and I think Duo-fast makes 34-drgree nails but check that before buying them.

Bought hitachi nr90ad nail gun and it isn't firing right..what exact size nails should i get ( as in 35,33,or 30 degree nails)


Use 34 degree, paper collated, clipped head nails. They were always the most common strip nails years ago as Senco, Paslode, and a number of other nailers used them.

What is the angle of the nail we use with this nailer


if thats a hitachi nr90ad, then you should be using 30 degree paper taped clipped headed nails,, never use plastic or wire collated nails in that gun,, some boxes might say 30 up to 34 degree and thats fine, also in a lot of areas clipped headed nails are no longer code, so they made the nails full headed, the head is just off set,,

Trouble finding 3 1/2 clipped head nails 34 degrees


You can use the same nails that are used for these nailers: Porter Cable FC 350A, Hitachi NR83AA2, Senco FramePro 701XP, 751XP ,Ridgid R350CHA, DeWalt D51822, D51823, and Paslode F-3505. Make sure you purchase the correct shank nail. Nail length should be 2"- 3 1/2" and the shank should be .113" - .131". I have purchased nails for my FC350 at Home Depot and they are relatively inexpensive. Though you have to buy a case of like 2000 or 4000. The brand of nail is Grip Rite that I purchased. Any questions please post.

Will bosch nail guns operate with Paslode brand nails?


The F28WW takes 28Deg nails that are collated with wire, so your nails won't work in that gun. The N80SB is also a 28Deg nailer so your 30 Deg nails won't work in that gun either. Sorry about the bad news but it looks like your going to have to spring for new nails

What brands of nails will work in my 15ga finish nailer 1000993


Here are a few tips on buying nails for your nailer. Nails are sold in two basic categories, clip head and full round head. The clip head are lower in price and are usually taped on glued together with no spacing between them. The full round head have spacing between each nail and are held together with plastic. Some nailguns can use both types. It is important to verify the angle of your gun. To measure the exact angle use a straitedge along length of rails and a protractor at the barrel of the gun. Place the protractor on the barrel with the 90 and 0 degrees aligned with the barrel and hold the straitedge aligned with the rails and the 0 degree mark. Read the angle. You may find that your gun measures a different angle. Nails are sold from 0 to 34 degree. 34 degree is usually clip head for Paslode, Senco, Hitachi and other brands. I find that many brands of nails do not list the angle, but list the name of the gun instead. This makes it difficult for non-branded guns. Take the protractor into the store and measure the angle of the nails or place the nails on the outside of the rails to see if they align with the barrel. Shop several stores because nails vary by brand. Once you verify the perfect fit, ask for a sample strip to try in your gun. When you identify the angle and type, use this information to shop for price. Most nails are imported from around the world, however there are nails still produced in the US costing more. Home Depot and Lowes do not carry a full range of nails.
=Google the internet for more info on nails such as www.nailzone.com. They sell a 33 degree nail that may fit your gun. Good luck and email me or post again with more questions.
