SOURCE: I have a craftsman 16

Assuming that the nails are correct for gun (16g nails measure .055) and feeder is actually applying pressure to nails (feel spring pressure as you close clip), most likely problem is driver is not returning to top of cylinder. This is caused by low pressure to gun, bent driver, lower bumper missing pieces/cracked, worn oring on piston or lack of lubrication. Remove cylinder and examine condition of lower bumper, replace if broken/cracked; check outer cylinder for check valve in place (usually small band or oring covering series of ventholes) ; replace piston oring as needed, make sure driver not bent. Parts available at sears web site. Good luck

Fire blade pasload pin gun doesn't punch the nail in


I'm assuming you've adjusted the depth gauge and this has had no affect? If so you need to do a full service before anything else. That's replacing both upper and lower o rings and give it a good clean. It sounds like your losing compression.

The gun dose not fire the pin all the way in ?


Dewalt list the obvious causes below.
Remember that the gun may not facilitate the use on specific materials that are just too much for the gun to handle. The most common cause for this issue is depth adjustment is not set properly. Also make sure that the nails being used are the correct nails for the gun. Its possible to buy the wrong type and they look very similar to the ones needed.

I have been installing a treated pine deck, but the nails are been driven in to far, i have tried adjusting the pressure from the compressor but have had no luck is there a depth adjustment on the gun?


Yes, there is a depth adjustment. Most of the Bostitch models have a push button on the left side near where the nails come out. With the air unplugged, push in this button and you can slide the head assembly up or down to make your adjustment. Slide it out for less depth. It sounds like maybe yours is fully seated, providing the maximum depth.

I have dewalt dc618, nail doesn't goes all the way in, please help?


Below find information on how to adjust for depth, however if you have already made adjustment then check for broken tip on driver blade. The blade is not expensive and available from dewalt service center.

Please note the following from manual:

Adjusting Depth
The depth that the fastener is driven can be adjusted using
the depth adjustment wheel (C) on the side of the tool.
WARNING: To reduce risk of serious injury from
accidental actuation when attempting to adjust depth,
ALWAYS:
• Remove battery pack.
• Engage contact trip lock-off.
• Avoid contact with trigger during adjustments.
1. To drive the nail shallower, rotate the depth adjustment
wheel (C). There are twelve depth settings, 1 being the
shallowest and 6 being the deepest.
2. To sink a nail deeper, rotate the depth adjustment
wheel (C) to a higher setting.

I have a craftsmans framing nailer when pushed against surface it will not fire and release the nails or even try.


Check the compressor to make sure you have it set at the proper air pressure for this nailer. Typically a framing nailer requires about 90 psi.

Mastercraft Brad nailer piston always fires damaging finish but nail gets randomly shot. Thought it was a indent before nail shot to indent nail since it mostley shoots nails after second shot but lately...


The dial on the top of the gun is most likely the depth adjustment for the nails, this should solve the driver damaging the work piece. Make sure the nails are the correct guage for the nailer you have.

Nail Gun cost


A good-quality starter set, including both a compressor and a small nail gun, can be bought for around 200 US dollars (USD). More sophisticated models can reach 1000 USD or more. Optional features such as a hard-shell case, safety trigger, and depth adjustment can drive the price even higher. For one-time jobs, a nail gun can also be rented at hardware stores and home repair centers.
