Question about Stanley Bostitch 18 Gauge Brad Nailer 1 - 1/4IN - BT125K - 2
Got a 18 gauge brad nailer. Hooked up to 100 psi compressor (my stanley staple nailer works fine). When I pull trigger, just a burst of air around trigger.
Is there anything I can do or replace?
My 18 gauge Bostich brad nailer would not fire, and air came out around the trigger. Even though the gun is advertised as oil less - this is what remedied my problem - a drop of oil. I put one drop of oil in the slot where the brads come out [realizing that is where the driver is located] and left the gun upright for some time. The next time I used the gun it worked just fine. A drop of oil can also be added into the gun where the air hose is hooked up. Do not over-do the oil process, but don't ignore it.

I had same problem with my brad nailer. The piston inside the main housing seemed to be gummed up and sticking. There was a vent on the top of the cylinder for the exhaust. When I would blow through this vent it would push the piston down and the nailer would start working. This is definitely not a permanent fix but might get you through the current job before you open the cylinder and see why it is sticking.

18 guage nailer has a very thin driver and plastic cylinder which bends or breaks easily. Remove the head noting all the parts in the head and remove the piston which should be at the top of the cylinder. Check for broken or bent shaft. Most likely broken and jammed in cylinder. Parts are not expensive. Check WWW.toolpartsdirect.com for diagram and parts
