    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: 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.

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.

Paslode nail guns won't shoot


piston is probably jammed

This happens sometimes try holding it up against a board with the trigger depressed and then inset the battery.

The goal is to try to force the firing sequence to get the piston back to the right position with corded units this is simply done by attaching the air hose with the trigger pulled this causes air to rush into the gun chamber pushing the piston back and firing a nail out.

The cause of this is a misfire or jammed nail that stopped the piston in the wrong location so air will not build in the chamber correctly.

Hope that helps

Arrow ET200 nail gun only put nails in 1/8 of inch.


This electric nail gun does not have much power. Try shorter nails and softer wood. You need a pneumatic nail or staple gun for medium or heavy work. I have both a nailer and stapler and neither are very good.
