Does the campbell hausfeld model sb504000 2 inch nailer/stapler need an external air to get started?


Sb504000 works just fine with pressure range from 60 to 120 psi depending on material. Any small compressor will work great. Using the gun at max pressure will shorten the life of the gun. Best practice is to set pressure to just under 100psi for most work and increase pressure when nailing hard wood. Using at max pressure will strain the driver and the lower part of gun (screws that hold nose to body). Some hard woods will bend an 18 gauge nail. Good luck with your gun and have fun with your projects.

Leaves about a 1/4" of nail from seating


This can happen for a number of reasons.

1) Insufficient air pressure (should be set to around 100PSI)

2) Hitting another nail or other extremely hard surface (old roofs are known for this)

3) Defect in the gun or lack of lubrication.

Since this is a reconditioned unit, I think that the gun is probably fine. Verify that the compressor has the correct pressure and that the hose is large enough in diameter to deliver sufficient air to the gun. Check the CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute) rating of the compressor/tank combo against the requirements of the gun.

Keep us posted,

Shoots one nail then it stops it fires but no nail


This is a very popular gun, very light and powerful. Skipping nails is not a common problem. Here are a few things to check that would cause the issue. (First remove air hose and nails.) Worn piston oring (piston will be in the down position). Open side door and check that piston is at top. If oring ok, check feed spring under feeder claw. If spring is in place, push feeder in manually. It should be very difficult to move feeder shaft. If it moves easily then spring inside feeder chamber is broken. If ok, connect air to gun, leaving side door open (nails removed) and bump fire gun against hard rubber (or coiled rubber hose ) very rapidly. While bump firing rapidly, look at feeder moving back and forward. It should be moving very quickly keeping up with speed of driver. If it appears to be moving slowly compared to driver there is an air feed restriction to feeder chamber. Check for debris in small air passage to chamber. Remove two allen screws holding nose of gun to body and examine the small white teflon oring between nose and body(part #149885). Sometimes this oring traps dirt and grime or just simply gets pressed so tightly that center hole is restricted. You must use the correct teflon oring here because the nose and body fit so tightly together that a rubber oring will close air path. Good luck.

Can I change the pressure on the nail gun?


Hi there .
First check if the nail gun have a adjustment screw . Depending on the brand could be in the front where the nails comes out or by the trigger. Second check the compressor by the air hose connection you should have a regulator valve with a gauge and see if you getting the right air pressure .
Hope this help

Third nail does not go all the wway


Have you checked to make sure the depth adjustment hasn't moved.

If it got banged hard enough it could have moved it and reduced the impact of the nailer

How do you safely remove jammed nail gun?


Not sure exactly what Bostitch framer model you have, but if it is powered by compressed air, as long as you remove the air hose from the nail gun, there should be no risk of the nail gun firing while you remove the jammed nail. There should be a way to access the driver area from the top of the nail gun, even via a latch or a couple screws. Remove the top part of the driver area and that should give you access to the jammed nail, which you can remove. Use long nose pliers or something similar if the nails are really stuck.

Will a 1/3 hp compressor fire an 18 guage 5/8'-2" Finish nailer?


You compessor is ideal for a small spray gun however a pin nailer requires 80 to 100 psi and a small air storage thank to operate properly. The nailer may very well shoot a short nail into very soft wood at 30 psi, however there may not be enough pressure to push the piston back to top positon to load another nail and fire again. Good Luck

Nail gun will not shoot


Not all 120psi air supplies are the same. Here are some differences. The pressure regulator has a great deal of effect on the performance of the air tool. Regulators are sold by the volume of air (cfm)that they can handle. The more cfm the larger the pipe fittings on the regulator. A 1/4 fitting regulator will restrict the air somewhat compared to a 3/8. Another difference is weather moisture is present in the air. Moisture will temporarily help seal the orings, however too much water in gun will cut the orings. The air hose and fittings will also stifle performance. Long small diameter hose will lower pressure at the gun. This can be measured by installing a guage on a T fitting on the end of the hose and watch the pressure as you fire the gun. Larger fittings and hose ID will improve performance. Finally, your nail gun should work on both compressors. To make your nailgun work at home, (assuming that there are no air leaks) lube the headvalve parts with silicone grease. (sold at lowes in plumbing dept) For best performance, replace the orings in the head valve, examine the plastic parts where the orings contact and look for wear and tiny scratches (use magnify lense). Replace these worn parts along with orings. Replace the head gasket and make sure that the body and the head-cap are not warped. Place sheet of fine sandpaper on flat surface, with cylinder removed rub the body of the gun on paper a few times to check for warp. Do same with cap. Parts are available at www.toolpartsdirect.com. Enjoy

Nail Gun Problem


Professional-grade varieties are automatic, and fire a nail directly upon pulling the trigger. A semi-automatic nail gun is more appropriate for beginners, since it requires a two step process: pull the trigger and then tap the barrel against the wood. This safety feature protects the user from accidentally firing a nail gun and injuring himself or others.

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.
