Most nailers will have an adjustment nut on the side of the nose. Read manual for the model you have also.

How do I adjust the gun for different nail sizes

The only adjustment is for how deep the nail will be driven. Variables are hardness of the wood and air pressure affecting results. Good luck

Bostitch rn45b wount drive the nails in all the way in and I don't see any adjustment like on my rn46

The bostitch nailer rn45 has an adjuster for depth on the front. Rotate the black knob for proper depth. If adjuster does not have an effect, most likely the driver oring is worn. Ez check for worn driver oring. Open side door and remove nails. Point nose of gun up then down again. If the driver moves up and down, replace the oring. The driver should stay in the upper position at all times. Good luck.

How do I get remove nail stuck between the driver and barrel on a FR350A

Sometimes cannot be done. Best chance to remove a stuck nail is to do following. Remove the head and pull out the cylinder leaving only the body with the stuck driver. Place the body on piece of hard plywood on a concrete floor. Make sure that the body is making full contact on the plywood. I use an old driver from framing nailer and a large copper or brass hammer (I have a 5 lb brass hammer). insert the old driver into the nose of the gun with the concave part of the driver toward the side where the nail is stuck. This will allow the stuck driver to move down and not jam the driven driver. Spray wd40 or similar followed by a spray of carb cleaner and let soak in. The carb cleaner will help the oil go deeper into the jam. Hold the old driver with a pair of vicegrips and while making sure the body stays square to the plywood, give it a solid blow. If no movement after couple of hits, lube again and wait few minutes. Make sure that you are on solid floor because this will not work on a bench. If hammer blows do not move the driver carefully apply heat to area of nose where the nail is stuck with turbo torch or similar. I do not like to apply heat unless last resort. Good luck

My gr200lcn floor nailer keeps getting nail stuck in it on the first nail filred

Depending on amout of use, driver blades do need to be ground square or replaced to make full contact with the nail head . There could be other factors causing problem however. The nails do need to align with the path of the driver. Make sure that the first nail is directly under the path of the driver. If the nails are not made correctly or the wrong nails are in the gun, the angle of the nails may be preventing full contact of the driver to nail head. Good luck

Ridgid coilnail gun jams and safty jams in place and gun will not fire. also somtimes will jam

if safety is jamming, its either bent or the pin that keeps it in place is missing/broken, you can find the pin right in front of the trigger. now as far as the nails jamming could be a few things. 1. wrong nails 2.right nail but may have gotten a defective batch 3. bucket that holds nails is adjusted to wrong size. 4.nails have been dropped/ squished and coil is not round anymore 5. nose is very worn and two nails are trying to come out at a time 6. driver is worn/broken and is trying to push out two nails at one time

My campbell hausfeld 3 1/2 nailer has been working fine, just today will it started misfiring. It would put out one nail, fire again -no nail. It seemed to be every other one, then it would be good, then...

Use wd 40,and spray it in the air input hole,where you connect the air line,and use the nailer,multiple times,then oil the slides for the nail hopper,and then after you do this,re oil with tool oil.If this was helpful,please rate.

It is shooting 2 brad nails at a time - is there some type of adjustment?

the first thing that i look at when a gun is double shooting is the nails. if i have the right nails then i check the driver( part of the gun that hits the nail) if the driver is fine( not bent or broken or worn) then your nose( chamber that holds the nail right before being shot out) is worn or broken. either way to answer your question , no , double shooting is not only dangerous but a complete waste of time, ps rate , tks

Nail Gun cost

A good-quality starter set, including both a compressor and a small nail gun, can be bought for around 200 US dollars (USD). More sophisticated models can reach 1000 USD or more. Optional features such as a hard-shell case, safety trigger, and depth adjustment can drive the price even higher. For one-time jobs, a nail gun can also be rented at hardware stores and home repair centers.
