    Try turning up the air pressure. Do it a little at a time and use a scrap piece of wood to test it b4 continuing.

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.

The nail sets to deep is there an adjustment or is the bumper worn out

Hi dfreerugs,

Welcome to fixya!

Where do you have the pressure set at on your compressor? The range for this nailer is 70 to 90psi. Try lowering the pressure until the nails drive to the depth you want.

If the gun is well-used and lowering the pressure doesn't do it, you might need a new pressure regulator in the gun.

Good luck.

I rented a Bostitch Floor Nailer from Home Depot, and the nails wont set into the maple flooring. Iv used three different compressors(all set to 90psi) and 4 different Bostitch Nail Guns. Im going out of...

Ive had the same problem where it was putting divits you could see from the staples, we ended up changing out the flooring completely. Only thing besides trying diff psi's to get it perfect and different length staples/different heads on staples(nails) , maybe try staple gun. Keep trying every woods different, odd that it started half way through job.. odd.

The nails will not drive into the oak flooring! the compressor is at 100psi and the nail gun mis fires or when it does fire it only drives the nail 1/4 inch into the flooring. It is a Akuzuki x-799

I am not familiar with that name of nailer but when I have run into that problem it was because of too much oil used in the gun. If so this will have to be cleaned out. You do not have to oil a gun every time it is used if not used consistantly for long periods of time. Also are you using the proper guage nails? Something to consider hope this helps.

Hello jsc.... the depth that the nailer drives the nail is dependent upon two factors, the hardness of the material you are driving the nail into and the air pressure. Generally when you want the nail to go in more you adjust the air pressure to a higher setting, going 5 psi at a time until you are close to perfect and then fine tuning the air pressure.

Sometimes people find that the air compressor itself is inadequate for the job. in that case, the only choice is to move up to a higher psi compressor. Joe

Can i use 1 and 1/2 inch nails to nail 3/4 inch hardwood.

The only time you would use 1 1/2" nails for 3/4" wood is if the flooring is being place on plywood over concrete.

I am using a Bostitch MFN200 Manual Flooring Nailer and we are having some trouble with it. The cleats go almost all the way into the floor board but are still sticking up about an inch out of the board....

2 things come to mind. I've installed Wood Floors for the last 5 years.

Make sure you have enough Air pressure running to the stapler,
and Second, Whack the hell out of it. You can be rough with it. Their designed to take a beating

When u hit it with the mallet, youre opening a valve which shoots the piston and drives the staple into the boards. hit it not hard enough, not enough air is being sent to the piston to drive it fully.

When using nailer w/ compressor, nail goes in only 1/2''

I worked at a tool rental center while attending college and had the opportunity to learn a great deal about nailers /staplers. At the tool rental center we had a large variety of staplers available to the customer depending of the job. Not knowing what specific brand or model I will give you some things to check. You could have a broken tip on the driver, to check try nailing into soft wood to see if staple is driven well into wood. If not open gun and check for broken or bent driver blade and replace as necessary. If staple is driven into soft wood ok, then check that the driver piston oring/split ring fits snugly in cylinder. If the piston fits too loose in cylinder you will loose power. If piston fits snuggly in cylinder, then time to check air supply. We would use a tee fitting with male fitting , pressure gauge and quick connect at the end of the hose to check that the air pressure at the end of the hose is at rated pressure. With tee fitting installed, you can fire the nailer and check that the pressure is actually the same as the reading at the pressure control. You may discover that the pressure is too low at the hose end. Sometimes the pressure regulator will not allow the recommended volume of air to flow thru to the gun. The gauge at the end of the hose will show that the pressure will be somewhat slow to recover. The pressure should be set to 120 at the compressor and maybe drop to no less than 100 at the hose end. If you suspect that the regulator is causing problem, you may temporarily remove it and use air directly out of the tank if your pressure switch shuts off the pump at 125psi. Good Luck, hope this helps enjoy.
