    Problem solved. The lever mechanism that guides the plunger allows theit to wobble wnen the plates are removed to clear the nail passage. I had been sliding the plates & slide safty at an angle that would allow the plunger to be clamped into the wrong location for it to drive the nails. It will go back together snugly if it is in the wrong position but the plates& covers go in place quite easily if it is in the correct position. I hope this helps someone else with the nailer.

I had this problem too, and finally figured out what was wrong. If you have cleared a jam and have put the nail gun back together, then all you get is a 'thunk' when you try to drive a brad, you have put it back together wrong, as I did. Take the two screws out and pull out all four pieces -- three plates and one skinny 'T' shaped piece. Look inside the unit and you'll see a pointed piece, which is the hammer that drives the brad in. This next step is key: put the first plate back in (the one that is flat on both sides) making sure that it slides in UNDER the hammer. The hammer fits loosely in its housing, so it may help to turn the nailer upside down so that the hammer falls down, giving you the room you need to get the plate in--again, so that it's UNDER the hammer when you turn the nailer back over. Once you have done this part, simply slide the second piece in (the one with the fluted strip down the middle), slide it in fluted side up, then the 'T' piece (with the 'T' in first) then the last piece with the wider groove that contains the 'T' piece. Replace screws and you're back in business! This information may be in the instructions, but I have long ago thrown those away.

SOURCE: Wher can I purchase a replacement circut board for

Do you still need this? I have a good board from my ET200. I dropped it, and the piece that keeps the nail driver steady when it shoots in & out broke off. However, the gun still functions fine. Let me know.

SOURCE: a 1 1/4" brad nail only penetrates 1/2 inch

Hi, There should be a power adjustment on the top of the driving head. Make adjustments there, and the penetration should improve.

Clearing the Nail and
Staple Chamber
If, while using your Cobra

staple
and nail gun, it becomes necessary to
clear a jam from the staple chamber or
track, follow these instructions:

With the bottom of the gun
facing away from your face and
body, open the staple chamber by
squeezing and pulling the plastic
track release straight down away
from the base of the gun and
sliding the track back.(Fig 1)
(Note: the jammed staple or nail
may cause the track to be harder
to slide out than usual. Once the
staple or nail has been cleared,
the track will resume its normal,
free operation) Loose staples or
nails will be expelled from the
chamber.

Clear any remaining staples or
nails from the track and chamber
area.

Reload the Cobra staple and nail
gun and continue using.

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 nail gun will not shoot


I don't have that same model but my gun started doing something similar a while back. I was able to disassemble the head of the gun and found that the hammer or piston that drives the nail had rounded itself off and wasn't able to make good contact with the nail head. Instead it pushed itself on top of the nail and got wedged. It's nearly impossible to see the stuck nail or dulled piston head without taking it apart. Hopefully this will help.

I took my arrow ET200 nail master apart to remove jammed nails. I need a diagram on how to put it back together


Susan Sylvia is exactly right. I just fixed my tool with her information. I would add to be very careful not to disturb the 2 small springs(associated with the trigger and safety mechanisms) and take note of how they are positioned. Also, the screws seem to strip unusually easily so be gentle when removing and replacing them.
