Misfires new gun


If your using refills that have wire holding the nails together.
Check to see if bits of wire, debris is collecting in around the striking hammer. I switched to paper and never looked back. Must have gone through 5k worth of nails and rarely jams. Other things to check,
1. Check the striking hammer, make sure it is not bent or damaged.
2. Check air pressure, Low pressure can cause jamming, misfires.
3. If the tool needs pneumatic oil, 2-3 drops before you start good rule of thumb.
4. Check spring return. Sufficient pressure must be maintained or the nails will not feed properly. Misfires, incorrect feed, jamming etc.
I had a Hitachi brad nailer and it was horrible. Fire 1 brad nail would jam or misfire. Did everything I could think of nothing worked. Put it up, got a Rigid brad nailer and never looked at the Hitachi again. :)
Sometimes you just get a lemon! (PS I understand you have a framing nail gun. Brad nail gun above is used for an example)
Hope this helps

The tank pressure is 150 Psi but the regulated pressure is 0. I have never used this compressor.


150 lbs is the amount of pressure in the tank. When you connect a nail gun for instance you cannot nail everything at 150 lbs of pressure, it will blast through. The regulated pressure is at zero because you have the ability to regulate it by turn the know under or beside it to increase the output pressure to your desired amount. I was building a shelf last week and set my regulated to 80lbs with a brad and it blew through the panel and stuck in the floor. After you get to know your nail gun you will be able to regulate it between 60 and 80 depending on the type of wood. Panel - 50 lbs, Oak, 90 lbs, etc. Pleas remember to rate this solution high if it was helpful and explained it to your satisfaction.

Eighter one of these will work good for nail guns personaly i have the porter cable and i like it i do a lot of construction work. And i think the porter cable comes a finish nail gun for small nails and staples mind did. But there not for running tools that require a large volume of air like air sanders air rachats or air cutters.

What is the angle of the 15 gauge nails for this gun and what nails are compatable


You did not mention the brand or model of your gun, however, you can determine the angle needed by placing a straight edge in line with the path of the driver and measure the angle from this edge to rails.. If the straight edge to the rails measure 90 degrees or makes a right angle, you need "0 degree" nails, if it measures 80 degrees, you need "15 degree" etc. Most generic nials 15 gauge nails will work. No need to by branded nails unless your gun requires an unusual angle. Good luck.

I have a poter cable brad nailer and after running


Sounds like a trigger seal. I assume this is an oil-less brad nailer as that is the standard. You should be able to find the seals at any local hardware store including Home Depot or Lowes. If you can't find the portercable O-rings just grab the random assortment from Bostitch which is usually readily available. Refer to your parts manual for the correct size/gauge

PC nail gun does not work all the time. nails do


You have to oil the nailer with pneumatic oil, or you're using the wrong size nail

Brad nailer not firing nail...can hear brief air noise upon pulling the trigger


Porter cable makes a number of brad nailers (18 gauge) that very quickly suffer from the problem that you are having. You did not mention the model number of your gun but if it is one of these, (bn125a, bn200a, ns100a) kit # 60061 will fix the problem. It costs between 25 and 30 dollars. Google that part number or order from www.dewalt.com. Dewalt owns the porter cable brand. Before you order the kit, check that the driver blade is not bent and stuck. The driver should travel freely down the cylinder. When you install parts, use Danco silicone grease to lube (availabel at Lowes in the plumbing department) If your model # is different from those mentioned above, please email me and I will recommend a repair.

How many tools will operate at same time


I think you'll have to look at your specs on your nail guns and see what the demand is . Whether measured in cfpm or psi, your compressor will tell you the max output of each of those. Then you divide the maximum sustained output of the compressor,, lets say it is 60 psi. Let's say the guns require 10 psi, 60 divided by 10 is 6 = 6 nail guns. This is completely hypothetical as I have no idea what your nail guns require, only you know what kind of guns you have.If you need to run more guns than the compressor can push air for, you'll have to invest in another compressor, maybe even one larger to handle the guns running wide open consistent nailing. Nothing a drywaller hates more is than for all the cursed clip nails not being drove in all the way, lol, and that's what will happen with insufficient air supply.
