On many floor nailers, counter sink is controlled by the thickness of lower pad. Your nailer most likely uses several different thickness of pads bolted to the bottom surface of the gun (usually white vinyl /plastic). The thinner the pad, the deeper the nail will set. Good luck.

SOURCE: won't feed nail

This happens to my gun too. You probably need to oil the gun once in a while. Here is how you fix it:
Disconnect the gun from the compressor first don't wanna get hurt or anything like that. There is a pin that shoots the nail out well that pin is jammed so what you have to do is push that pin to the original position. using a flat head screwdriver would help you to push that pin back into place. Let me know how that turns out please. I pretty sure that is the problem with your gun. Make sure you lubricate the Nailer once in a while.

SOURCE: Leak inside Bostitch N80 Nailer, won't drive nails

If the unit is leaking it most likley need a rebuild kit. Go to a Bostitch service center and ask for an ORK-11 kit. That is all the o-rings needed to do an over haul. Or just have them do it.

SOURCE: DeWalt d51822 framing nailer, shoots 2 nails at once 1 in 5 times

I worked at at tool rental center while attending college and learned from the old tool masters about nails and nailers. Rental stores have many different brands of nailers to rent and customers would bring their own nails of all brands. You will notice on the case/box that your nails will /should work on many other brands however the degree or angle of the nails is not always exacly as stated on the box. You should check with protractor the exact angle of your nails and also check the exact angle of the nailer. Use straight edge on travel path of the piston and another on guide rails to check angle of the gun. You will discover that all is not as stated as in a perfect world. If the angle is off slightly, the head of the second nail will get into the path of the driver. This happens mostly with clip head because the nail heads are so close together. The full round head is spaced further apart with less jamming. If angle is off slightly, take a look at other brands of nails with protractor in hand, the angle will be different slightly or choose a slightly thicker nail. Look for the nails to fit with bottom of nail hitting the barrel first. This will move the head of the nail slightly away from the center line. Finally do not release pusher with force as this will jamb nails closer together. Good Luck!?

Why might my nail guns not work?


Have you lubricated either nail gun? If not, go to Home Depot and get a bottle of air tool oil. It's in tools by the compressors. Disconnect the air hose from the tool. Pour about a teaspoon of oil into the air inlet of the tool. Reconnect everything and try it 10-20 times with no nails in the tool. Then try it with nails. Good luck.

Miss fires and wont sink nails depth set deep and pressure over 120 psi


If no air is leaking from gun, miss-fire is usually caused by worn or too tight piston oring or lack of lubrication. Easy test. Disconnect airline, remove nails, point nose of gun up then down. Driver should stay in uppermost position. If driver moves up then down within gun replace piston oring and retest. Set pressure to about 100psi. Good luck with repair.

Hitachi nr83aa shoots out nail and it bends last inch of nail over


One problem may be your air pressure at the gun. It should be between 90 and 100 psi to fully drive the nail fast enough to prevent nails being left high in the work or bent over. Bent nails can also happen if you are driving nails into very hardwood or hit a knot in softer woods but not usually with framing nailers. Another thing to look for is a rounded off driver that is slipping off the head of the nail before it is fully driven into the work. The tip of the driver should be round (some have a crescent moon shape) but square to the sides. If you need a new driver the part number is 878-630, shop the web for one of these, they run beteween $80 and $100 plus shipping.

I have a RN45B roof nail gun that wont sink the nails all the way. How do I adjust depth of nails?


The adjustment is inside the magazine there are 3 setting depending on the length of nail. Here is a PDF of the owners manual for that tool, the procedure to set the depth is on page 6. http://www.bostitch.com/catalog_images/web_pdf/103280.pdf
If after setting the depth you are still having issues you can adjust the pressure on your compressor. The operating pressure for that unit is 70 - 100 psi. Do not exceed 100 psi and remember to disconnect your hose before loading/unloading or making adjustments to your nailer.

Adjusting airpresure


There is nothing on a nailer to adjust the air pressure. You have to do it at the pressure regulator. It is feasable to mount a regulator at the gun but more likely it's on the compressor. Most nail guns are rated for 90 to 120 psi. Set your regulator to hold the hose pressure between 90 and 100 psi. Using higher pressure to set the nail will ruin your nailer. Use the depth adjustment on the gun to set how far the nail is driven.

Max 890s coil nailer does not advance nails when operated.


Make sure you have at least 100 psi available and I would pretty much drown the sliders and other moving parts in something like Marvel Mystery Oil.

Will a 1/3 hp compressor fire an 18 guage 5/8'-2" Finish nailer?


You compessor is ideal for a small spray gun however a pin nailer requires 80 to 100 psi and a small air storage thank to operate properly. The nailer may very well shoot a short nail into very soft wood at 30 psi, however there may not be enough pressure to push the piston back to top positon to load another nail and fire again. Good Luck

The nails aren't going in far enough using a air cleat nailer


I just finished 800 square feet of oak flooring with this nailer. You might have to increase the psi at the gun and make sure it gets a good square firm hit to set the nail. You can swing and hit the thing pretty hard, I hit it hard to set warped boards in place. I used 120 psi for best results, I tried 90 psi but had more misfires. The nail head only needs to set in far enough so the head is touching the tongue and so the next board will fit. The nail won't be buried into the tongue like you might think. If the occasional nail protrudes from the board you can use a nail set to drive the nail the rest of the way in, but I found that most of the nails didn't want to set by hand. I either clipped off the head with side cutters and folded over the remaining tab or did my best to set the nail if it wasn't long enough to clip. If it bends over really ugly, just carve a little wood from the groove lands on the next board to clear the nail stub. Removing the nails is difficult, it's best to let them be rather than risk damaging the flooring. Also, don't let the gun get down to the last nail. Sometimes if you try to fire the last nail on a strip it will twist and damage the flooring. Always keep a few nails in the gun just to be safe. Hope this helps.
