Sounds as if you have a small Bostitch nailer/stapler. Bostitch lables its safety mech parts as Safety A for the part that actually contacts the work and Safety B for the part that contacts the trigger. Go to www.Bostitch.com and look for diagram of your gun. These two parts fit snuggly just behind the outer-most guide/nose. Safety b sits on top of safety a. There is usually a thumb adjustment and a spring between the two parts. The spring is usually installed on top of safety a and below the adjustment knob. enjoy

Why does nail gun not fire? Safety works ok. Gun loaded with 2 1/2" finish nails. Trigger safety switch is off. Slight hiss of air when trigger depressed but does not fire.


Hi Charles & Floyd:
Just a couple of thoughts that may assist.
First. This is an air tool so it is DANGEROUS! Treat it like a LOADED GUN.
Here's what I would do:
- Disconnect from air supply - point away from anything I don't want to hurt, and squeeze trigger. Press safety against block of wood and squeeze trigger.
- Now that I know it is safe, I would remove the nails from the magazine and check that none is stuck in breech mechanism.
- Check that feed spring/latch has released. Sometimes if loaded too full it can catch.
- Load some nails, check that they are the correct fit, and are sliding in the magazine.
- check air supply pressure. Should be between 80 and 100 psi.
- reconnect air supply and try again.
- If it does not fire it may be that the piston is not fully retracting. Since it is new, I would be returning it to the store where it was purchased.
Hope this helps.

How do i remove the feed door on a bostitch coil framing nail gun?


well finally a question I know all about. Is it N70 or N80? either way you have to take of the magazine and trip cover, don't loose the spacers need them to align stuff, anyway with that off take the spring from under the trip *(safety) you will need a 6mm hex to take off the nose and when the nose is off depending on the model you will have to remove the rubber washer holding the pin in , make sure the driver guide the little silver circular thing goes back in right, which is round part toward the top, I pull the piston out past the bumpers ( two) one is circular and other is mushroom shaped. anyway pull em out grease the oring on the piston and slide that back in and re-assemble. I do it piston / driver first, then bumper that is circular fits inside cylinder and then the mushroom one and before the silver thing( driver guide) I pull the driver all the way up and then it becomes a guide when I put the nose back on. Make sure the safety arm is on the nose before you bolt it down, there is no give, and make sure the trip aligns behind the pins by the trigger the little bracket( safety guide)
the door is held in by a pin and the pin is held by the driver guide and a washer. I take my bench grinder and make a the pin on the end look like a very dull pencil to easily side through the rubber washer during reassembly. I start the pin with the door closed and wiggle the door as needed to make it line up. the groove in the pin, if it has one goes to the bottom.

My bostitch N88RH is not firing nails


May occur when headvalve or driver is stuck (will usually make a pop or click when tigger is depressed), or tigger valve has failed or safety not actually touching trigger firing pin. Easy test, remove nails, remove trigger by pushing out 3mm roll pin or bolt to expose the firing pin. Pull back nail feeder and place the nose against piece of wood ~ depress trigger with very quick motion with finger. If it fires, reinstall trigger and adjust safety foot so that the firing pin is pushed all the way in. If does not fire, replace trigger valve (usually tva6) or remove trigger valve and replace the 3 orings on the inner plunger. If you hear a pop or click when you do test above, remove head and lube the headvalve orings with white grease or silicone paste.

How do i unlock my lg microwave i dont have an owners manual so i dont know how to unlock it


"Locked" meaning the buttons don't work/non-responsive (Child Safety Locked)? To Unlock/Disengage the Child Safety. Push and hold the "Clear/Off" button for 3 to 4 seconds. The Child Safety is disengaged - problem solved.

Using recommended 3 1/2" nails; cannot get the nailer to sink the nail all the way to the head. Depth is set to max and air pressure within recommended range of 70 to 120 p. s. i. g.


remove the nails and air hose. tap the gun lightly and does the driver fall down?? if so it needs new o rings and doesn't have enough seal to drive the nail. also look at the condition of the driver. FOLLOW CLOSELY, reconnect the gun and remove the nails pull back on the follower and using a piece of wood to activate the safety hold gun at an angle, weara safety glasses and depress and hold trigger to expose the driver, does it extend past the nose and LOOK DONT TOUCH to check the condition of the end. release the trigger. this should give you some ideas why. also recheck the nails for proper collation and head are they clipped or full round. Let me know and I will try and help further. READ closely before attempting the above ideas.

Friend took my 900420 nailer apart to clean it and when he got done, had a small spring about 3/16" x 1" left over. Does anyone have a clue where it might go?


Thin spring?
Goes in-between the Follower Guide and Button.
There are several Coil springs used in a Paslode 900420 framing nailer.

1.In-between the Upper Probe and the Lower Probe.
(Safety device you depress so the gun will shoot)
2.Trigger
3.Lockout Bar
4.Follower Guide and Button

(There is a flat spring also. Goes in-between the Probe Stop and Probe Release)

Here let me show you,

Hitachi 83a2 (s) framing nailer jamed, there are 2 nails in cylinder, not sure how to clear the chamber. .


1.Remove the air hose
2.Hold the nose down on a 2x4 on the ground. Make sure the safety guide is full depressed.
3.Squeeze the trigger.

(I realize that sounds redundant, but I have to insure your safety as much as possible. We at FixYa want you to be safe. A Framer Nailer can be dangerous if safety precautions aren't observed)

4.Pull the slide back, and grab around it with your hand, up against the back of the gun. (Magazine)
If you accidentally bump the latch lever, the slide won't spring forward, possibly causing you injury by using this method.

5.Remove any nails. Pull the plastic strip of nails out.

6.The method I use here is to rest the air chamber cover on a table. (Top of the gun) Nose AWAY from your face. I use a small flat tip screwdriver, and see if I can move the Driver back up into the gun. Then see if I can ease one nail out at a time, by moving the nail down out of the nose.

You have two nails trying to drive out at the same time. They need to be separated from each other, so that you can get one nail out at a time.

Most of the time this occurs because of lack of lube. The gun is supposed to have 4 to 5 drops of pneumatic oil, added to the air hose inlet before starting the day out.

(Gun is faced so that the air inlet connection is straight up, oil is added, while the trigger is being squeezed in at the same time)

I don't rely on oilers in the air line. I think they're a bunch of hooey. I've had very few problems, when I have added oil manually at the start of the day.

Sometimes using those 'bargain' nails will cause a problem also. If you find a brand of nails that are cheap, this is the usual result.

Sometimes we framers are too fast on the trigger, and do not have the safety guide fully depressed, before firing the next 'shot'.

If you have further questions please post them.

Changing Door Mirror Glass XJ6(X300)


Hi

You need to put on a pair of gloves, and safety glasses. (Safety First !)
Prise off the broken mirror from the plastic base that it is stuck too.
Give the plastic a clean with nail polish remover or similar.
Peel off the backing on new mirror glass, and carefully stick it on.

Good Luck !

Framing a 2x6 wall


does the nose piece go back as far when you actually use the gun as when you pulled it back? I had the same problem with a different model, The nose piece acts as a safety to stop the gun firing when not up against whatever you are nailing. If it a similar design to mine (and most are) if you follow the nose piece up the gun somewhere along that will be some sort of bend in the metal to form the safety. it sounds like this needs to be bent a little more so it actuates the safety off valve/switch. Be careful though that safety is there for a reason, dont bend it too far and make the safety too sensitive. Hope this helps
