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.

What type of lube oil for my hitachi brad nailer


Needs very little oil, just few drops of sewing machine oil or nail gun oil sold at lowes or home depot. Purchase smallest size bottle of Paslode or bostitch nail gun oil (most likely they will not have hitachi oil). Do not by air tool oil as this oil is for air powered impact etc. Good luck

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.

My brad nailer shoots staples without any problem but it jams on the second brad after being freed up from the previous jam. How to I rectify this problem. It is a fairly new stapler/nailer and has done...


Shoots staples fine but brads jam or bend. Check that the part called "guide bar", #35 on the parts diagram isn't getting stuck in the channel of part #30.

The guide bar retracts into the channel when driving a staple and springs out of the channel to guide brads.

The guide bar can get stuck in the channel if it's bent or gummed up. (Bent is likely the result of driving a brad into an obstruction.)

Dewalt compressor not filling with air


if you do not have any air leaks and it is a oil less compressor than it is most likely the piston seal is wore out. if it is an oil compressor that it is likely a flapper valve
