Air stapler leaks air through ''nose''

It's a little Husky (Home Depot) 60-psi max stapler/brad nailer combo tool. Little compressor (1 gal). Was using stapler with 1/2" 18-ga. staples, was working fine. Fastener tool suddenly started pouring air through the spot where the fastener comes out. Can it be fixed? HOw?

This sounds like one of the O-rings has failed. Yes it can be fixed. Check to see if HD has an O-ring kit for these guns. That kit will contain all of the O-rings as well as the lubricants for a total rebuild. That should resolve your problem.

TNT XAGD50 brad nailer is jammed


If the jam is bad enough you may just have to pull the 3 front magazine screws (metric allen screws) and the one in the rear that holds the magazine to the tool frame. That way you can pull the entire magazine off which will expose the nose area and you can remove the jammed nail.

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.

I have a poter cable brad nailer and after running


Sounds like a trigger seal. I assume this is an oil-less brad nailer as that is the standard. You should be able to find the seals at any local hardware store including Home Depot or Lowes. If you can't find the portercable O-rings just grab the random assortment from Bostitch which is usually readily available. Refer to your parts manual for the correct size/gauge

Hi. I just bought one and can't figure out how to get the pressure to start increasing? the power runs ok but the pressure is still at 0. thx


you could check the bleed valve.
it is located under the tank,
put on the unit and place your hand over the valve,
if there is air coming out of it then that is your problem.
some valves are made to tighten and some are made
to loosen. important stop the air from coming out.
if that is not the problem contact me for a next tip.

Will only charge to 40 psi, is supposed to charge to 150


You may have a problem still related to the original reason it was reconditioned.

However, you should have a regulator that you set to the tank pressure you want to maintain. Most have a tool regulator as well and 40 psi sounds like that is what it is set for.

If you do have a tank pressure regulator and it is still not charging above 40 psi, then either take it back or pick up a new regulator for under $20 at Home Depot and replace the gauge you have now.

Also, sometimes the gauge will have a needle tilted so that one end presses against the glass, and if you tap the glass hard with your finger it will move on around to the correct pressure.

Finally, if you are not experienced with small compressors, look under your gauge and see if there is not a black knob that pulls out and pushes in to turn and change the pressure.
