    Thanks. Believe it or not, it turned out to be the "air hose/couplings" Funny, I could inflate tires and blow dust with the "faulty hose/couplings" and compressor set up, but somehow, I guess the hose/couplings was not putting out enough to run the nailer.

    Luckily I had spare hose and couplings and the gun fired. I knew it could not be the gun, meaning what are the odds of 2 guns going out at once. I think I might go back and replace the couplings on the other hose to to know for sure if it is the hose or not. Things are working great, thanks for replying.

Insert a open fitting adapter into the connection end and make sure you are getting a good air flow with open ended connector hold away from face and eyes while doing test and be sure the fitting is well seated into coupler before releasing . let me know result

When I pull the trigger, the nailer just goes "futz". no brad coming out. no jam. not used over 100 psi. two nailers have given me the same problem

The first thing that comes to mind is they are not being oiled properly. Follow the directions for the number of drops of air tool oil to put in daily. If they have been run dry, this makes quick work of the Orings and requires rebuilding the nailer with new Orings.

The second thing is if contamination has gotten into the cylinder bottom thaat can happen if a jam has ever occured.

Dis-assemble the nailer and inspect for these conditions.

Nails won't shoot

18 guage nailer has a very thin driver and plastic cylinder which bends or breaks easily. Remove the head noting all the parts in the head and remove the piston which should be at the top of the cylinder. Check for broken or bent shaft. Most likely broken and jammed in cylinder. Parts are not expensive. Check for diagram and parts
