Why might my nail guns not work?


Have you lubricated either nail gun? If not, go to Home Depot and get a bottle of air tool oil. It's in tools by the compressors. Disconnect the air hose from the tool. Pour about a teaspoon of oil into the air inlet of the tool. Reconnect everything and try it 10-20 times with no nails in the tool. Then try it with nails. Good luck.

How do I release the trigger lock on a brand new porter cable nail gun


Are you depressing the nose of the nail gun against the material to be nailed first? Without doing this, the trigger will not "unlock". You can read a pretty in-depth review of this nail gun at OnlineToolReviews com Porter Cable FR350A Full Round Head Framing... which might also help.

Can My FC 350 A used 28 degree nails


The manual for your gun specifies 34-degree nails from 2 to 3 1/2 inches long. 28-degree, wire collated nails are a Stanley-Bostitch thing and they only work in their nail guns, they will not work in your nail gun. You need 34-degree, paper-tape collated nails. I know Senco framing nails will work in your gun and I think Duo-fast makes 34-drgree nails but check that before buying them.

16 ga nails dont set flush to wood.


Assuming that the nail head not setting in and adjusting depth control does not remedy. Usually occurs when the tip breaks off. Remove the head and pull out the driver to examine tip. If tip broken or bent, replace with new or try to adjust as needed. If about 1/16 of tip broken, reshape the driver so that the tip is just slightly wider than nail head, taper the lower 1/4 inch on the side of the driver that faces the nails so that the driver will only strike one nail and reduce (shave) the size of the lower bumper so that the driver will extend out same amount that you need due to broken tip(only works if 1/16 -1/8 broke off).

How do I load the 2 1/2 inches nails to my 16 ga porter cable finish nailer? How do I put the oil and what part of the gun?


Hello,

You need to open the nail magazine and you just load one strip of nails at a time, then close the magazine. It will have a spring putting pressure on the nails, so it will have resistance on it and it will increase as you close it.

The oil gets dripped in the air hose connection on the gun before you connect the air. Make sure that this gun actually takes oil, some newer guns are oilless.

Hope this helps,Matt

Driver pin on model FN250A not retracting far enough to drive next nail. Will shoot 2 or 3 nails and miss 6 or so.


I had the same problem with an electric stapler from Craftsman after years of disuse. The solenoid that powers the hammer that is no retracting may require lubing if this is possible.

If not, then if the product is within warranty, you might be able to get a replacement.
