The o-rings need to be replaced and/or the trigger assembly is defective. Look around at local lumber yards for a "Bostich days" promotion. Often with the purchase of a box of nails, the Bostich rep will "service" up to 2 guns for free. If this is not an option for you because of time, you can purchase the o-ring kit and replace the rings yourself. This is not a difficult repair. Also, be sure to lubricate the guns with pneumatic oil frequently as this will keep the rings lubtricated and prevent them from drying out and leaking.

Hope this helps,

Dan

Air comes out the nose of my dewalt framing nailer


Again sounds like blown O ring give it a squirt of 3in1 oil and fire it several times (if oil is compatible in your gun). Repair center if that doesn't work. Trash can also get in the air orifice and stop moving parts from moving.

Nailer drives nails too deep


n80 coil nailer is a very powerful nailer used for hard wood. If the driver is setting nails too deep, adjust safety foot to the lowest level. Install safety foot no-mar boot to lift the gun even higher. If still too deep, most likely the lower bumper inside the gun is worn-out or cracked. Easy test. Remove nails and connect air supply. With trigger depressed, push and hold the gun against work (I use an old rubber hose tightly coiled up). This will fire the gun but keep the driver down allowing you to examine the tip of the driver. The driver should extend out past the nose less than quarter inch. If the driver is extending too far, most likely bumper is worn out. If a large quantity of air is leaking out the nose of gun during the test, indication that lower bumper is cracked. Good luck.

I have a 16 guage Bostich nail gun that has worked perfectly with the nails supplied with the gun. We purchased more Bostich nails and they are making a U-turn in the wood and coming back out. This is...


I would check first for the proper guage nails that you bought and then what is the capacity of the tool. You didn't specify the model number but I would think one or the other. then also check for the wood being nailed into. All could lead to your problem.

My brand new bostich roofing gun froze up after about 1 coil of nails, and will not fire. does it matter that it's 15 degrees outside? What's my problem?


Water in gun or wrong oil for cold temp will cause gun to freeze. Make sure that the compressor is not making water form in hoses due to hot air entering cold hose then freezing in gun. Remove cap of nailer and check for water and lube with light oil that remains liquid in your temp range. If the oil is too thick, the firing valve under trigger and headvalve will not budge. Use very short hose so warm air in tank can reach the nailer (heat is produced when air is compressed, however long hose will allow air to cool before entering gun). Stay warm and good holidays

I just bought a used Bostitch Coil Nailer. 3 1/4" nails work fine but the 2" nails will not keep feeding.


Check the spacing of the nail collation between the two nail sizes and also the spacing of the copper wires. Some nailers have a different setting for the check paws on the latch door to compensate for the thinner nails (too much clearance between the latch door and body of gun). Check manual at www.bostich.com for proper setting of check paws between nail types. Good luck

Will bosch nail guns operate with Paslode brand nails?


The F28WW takes 28Deg nails that are collated with wire, so your nails won't work in that gun. The N80SB is also a 28Deg nailer so your 30 Deg nails won't work in that gun either. Sorry about the bad news but it looks like your going to have to spring for new nails

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.

Bostich framing nailer leaks air out driver hole


Generally, air leaking from the nose of the gun is caused by the vinyl headvalve/cylinder seal. It is installed on the headvalve and snugs against the cylinder. I would also check the cylinder ring supporting the cylinder that is visable when the head is removed. The cylinder ring is made of white plastic and has an oring on outside edge and seals against the cylinder with another oring. The ring tends to crack allowing air out nose. Some cylinder rings were made of metal, which is better and do not fail. Metal or plastic, check the orings there. Not to worry, these parts are not expensive and available at www.bostitch.com. enjoy
