SOURCE: How do you safely remove jammed nail gun?

Not sure exactly what Bostitch framer model you have, but if it is powered by compressed air, as long as you remove the air hose from the nail gun, there should be no risk of the nail gun firing while you remove the jammed nail. There should be a way to access the driver area from the top of the nail gun, even via a latch or a couple screws. Remove the top part of the driver area and that should give you access to the jammed nail, which you can remove. Use long nose pliers or something similar if the nails are really stuck.

SOURCE: will bosch nail guns operate with Paslode brand nails?

The F28WW takes 28Deg nails that are collated with wire, so your nails won't work in that gun. The N80SB is also a 28Deg nailer so your 30 Deg nails won't work in that gun either. Sorry about the bad news but it looks like your going to have to spring for new nails

My nailer will drive 1 nail then the hammer slides over the top of the next nail bending it and jamming the gun. It was working then this started.


There are many brands of nails that fit into the rail however the angle or gauge my be a little off thus causing miss or jam. One method to check for good angle is to place the strip of nails on the outside of the rails aligned with the top. The first nail should align with the path of the driver. If off alignment do not use them. With pinners or staplers the gauge is important. Remove one pin or staple from the strip and make sure it fits snuggly thru bottom exit. Too tight or too loose will jam. Good luck

Driver slides over the top of the nail bending it and jamming it. It will drive the 1st nail then jams.


Most jamming is caused by either wrong type of nail in gun or the driver blade tip is no longer square. Easy to check both. With nails removed strike nose of gun down against rubber mat or soft wood to move driver down for examination. It should look square. If edges look rounded or chipped, remove driver and use grinder to adjust. To check nails for good fit, lay a strip of nails on the magazine. Align the first nail with the center line of the path of the driver. The rest of the strip of nails should align with the angle of the rails on the magazine + or - 5 degrees ok but any more difference will cause jam. Good luck

I have a porter cable fr 350 an it says to use 22 degree nails it i have always used 21 degree nails in it will this hurt the gun


There are many different brands of nails sold for your gun. Nail companies try to sell nails to fit as many different guns as possible in one box(will range a few degrees). I have found that the stated angle is not always exact. To determin the best nail for your gun, place a strip of nails on the outside of the rails with top of the strip of nails (nail heads) aligned with rails. Now slide the nails forware to the centerline of the path of the driver. If a perfect fit, the first nail will align with the rails and the path of the driver. Note if the bottom of the nail is ahead of the nail head. If this is the case the driver will not hit squarely on the head of the nail. If the head is in line with the driver but the shaft of the nail angles back toward the rails, the nail may jam against the nose. Use your best judgement when buying nails. If you have not had a jam, keep using the nails, however test the nail as described above for good fit. Good luck

The gun will fire staples, nails do not set.


Shoots staples fine but brads jam or bend. Check that the part called "guide bar", #35 on the parts diagram isn't getting stuck in the channel of part #30.

The guide bar retracts into the channel when driving a staple and springs out of the channel to guide brads.

The guide bar can get stuck in the channel if it's bent or gummed up. (Bent is likely the result of driving a brad into an obstruction.)

The business end should look like this:

Can i use any brand coil nailes in my nv 45ab2 coil nailer


Yes. Roofing nailers all use about the same size and spacing on coil nails. You will find that Harbor Freight is about 1/2 the price of Home Depot or Lowes for those nails.

does the nose piece go back as far when you actually use the gun as when you pulled it back? I had the same problem with a different model, The nose piece acts as a safety to stop the gun firing when not up against whatever you are nailing. If it a similar design to mine (and most are) if you follow the nose piece up the gun somewhere along that will be some sort of bend in the metal to form the safety. it sounds like this needs to be bent a little more so it actuates the safety off valve/switch. Be careful though that safety is there for a reason, dont bend it too far and make the safety too sensitive. Hope this helps
