Question about Air Tools & Compressors
My paslode framing nailer will not work on my compressor at home i have 120psi on it. pull the trigger and air blows out of the trigger. took the nailer to work same psi nailer works fine whats going on everthing else works on my compressor?please help thanks scott
Not all 120psi air supplies are the same. Here are some differences. The pressure regulator has a great deal of effect on the performance of the air tool. Regulators are sold by the volume of air (cfm)that they can handle. The more cfm the larger the pipe fittings on the regulator. A 1/4 fitting regulator will restrict the air somewhat compared to a 3/8. Another difference is weather moisture is present in the air. Moisture will temporarily help seal the orings, however too much water in gun will cut the orings. The air hose and fittings will also stifle performance. Long small diameter hose will lower pressure at the gun. This can be measured by installing a guage on a T fitting on the end of the hose and watch the pressure as you fire the gun. Larger fittings and hose ID will improve performance. Finally, your nail gun should work on both compressors. To make your nailgun work at home, (assuming that there are no air leaks) lube the headvalve parts with silicone grease. (sold at lowes in plumbing dept) For best performance, replace the orings in the head valve, examine the plastic parts where the orings contact and look for wear and tiny scratches (use magnify lense). Replace these worn parts along with orings. Replace the head gasket and make sure that the body and the head-cap are not warped. Place sheet of fine sandpaper on flat surface, with cylinder removed rub the body of the gun on paper a few times to check for warp. Do same with cap. Parts are available at www.toolpartsdirect.com.

I think that there is water in your compressor from condensation, it's getting the inside of your gun wet and it's freezing up. Just a guess.

Here is a tip that I wrote about the Paslode nailers and the problems that can come up with them.
I also have a link to the Paslode manuals which contain Paslode cleaning and troubleshooting guides.
If you need parts for your Paslode, there also is a link for a site that sells the Paslode nailer parts.
