SOURCE: bostich gun problem

If the piston/driver is broken, the gun will fire however nailing will not take place because the piston will jam in the cylinder. Sometimes the cylinder will also crack when the driver goes. If the piston is not broken but stays down, then check the cylinder check valve, worn lower bumper, bent driver or cracked cylinder. 18 guage nailer has a very thin driver which will easily bend or break. Parts however are not expensive.

SOURCE: Bostitch nail gun loss of pressure, won't fire nail

Hello. I can help you. The nail gun you have uses 18 gauge brads. I would use only original Bostitch 18 gauge.

The one MM of difference you mention is the reason why you do not have the pressure you did have. Get rid of those 31MM brads and get the 18 gauge. Home Depot carries the Bostitch line. I would go there or to homedepot.com

SOURCE: how do you load nails in stanley tr250 staple and

The magazine on the TR250 has a recess on one side as well as a relief at the top where the driver pushes them through the opening. Load the brads/nails on that side of the magazine and it should operate properly. AS A REMINDER: ALWAYS REMOVE NAILS/STAPLES/BRADS WHEN NOT IN USE AS THIS WILL WEAKEN THE SPRING AND CAUSE FEED PROBLEMS IN THE FUTURE.

Why does nail gun not fire? Safety works ok. Gun loaded with 2 1/2" finish nails. Trigger safety switch is off. Slight hiss of air when trigger depressed but does not fire.


Hi Charles & Floyd:
Just a couple of thoughts that may assist.
First. This is an air tool so it is DANGEROUS! Treat it like a LOADED GUN.
Here's what I would do:
- Disconnect from air supply - point away from anything I don't want to hurt, and squeeze trigger. Press safety against block of wood and squeeze trigger.
- Now that I know it is safe, I would remove the nails from the magazine and check that none is stuck in breech mechanism.
- Check that feed spring/latch has released. Sometimes if loaded too full it can catch.
- Load some nails, check that they are the correct fit, and are sliding in the magazine.
- check air supply pressure. Should be between 80 and 100 psi.
- reconnect air supply and try again.
- If it does not fire it may be that the piston is not fully retracting. Since it is new, I would be returning it to the store where it was purchased.
Hope this helps.

Hitachi nail gun


If gun firing but nails not being driven could be one of two basic problems:
1. Nail jammed in magazine not allowing nails to move up.
Empty magazine, does follower move to top of magazine. Push gun against work piece, does fan motor start? Yes - jam in magazine or lock out bar not operating. (this would allow nail un to fire when out of nails)
2. Piston/driver not returning fully after firing, hence driver blade on top of next nail instead of behind it. This could again be caused by a jammed nail or just a nail head. Another case of not returning is the combustion chamber not making a good seal, check O rings on framer (they are steel rings on bradders) it may just need a good clean it is surprising how dirty they can get and if not cleaned a build up of dirt could break a seal. If not been cleaned for a long time worth checking piston rings, worst case scenario dirt builds up around the rings and stick fully in requiring new piston if the rings will not come out.
Nail guns work on the principle that an explosion pushes the piston driver forcing a nail into the work piece, after the explosion a vacuum is created and it is this that 'sucks' the piston/driver back up the cylinder.

NO NAIL IS COMING OUT WEN YOU PRES THE TRIKER


I presume the gun fires but no nail is ejected. A possibility is jammed nails in the magazine. Do you see a mark in your work piece of the driver blade? If yes then it is most likely jammed nails. If not could be a broken driver blade. If gun does not fire could be gas problem. (check in date, yes it does have a use by date), another cause of not firing is a broken wire particularly around trigger switch (switch is on trigger and hence the wires are flexing every time trigger is pressed). Another cause of not firing is a brass spring clip in handle assy if this breaks it stops the gun firing. Recently I have had more broken wires than anything else on these guns. Worth noting is that the Stanley Bostitch nail guns suffer the very same faults. Also note they are the same gun just different colours so you can fit Hitachi parts to the Bostitch and they are cheaper.

Senco fram pro 602 nail gun firers but no nail just a hole from firing pin


First, check that you are using the proper nails. The FP602 needs Full Round Head nails with plastic collation. If you are using Clipped Head nails with the paper tape collation the angle of the nails not let the driver catch the next nail and drive it into your work.
If you have the correct nails, check the magazine to make sure the nails are feeding all the way up to the driver. If there is anything blocking the way or if the spring on the feeder isn't taught enough to pull the clip all the way up the driver won't be able to catch the next nail and drive it in.

Gun fires, leaves good indentation, no nail. WCE working properly, took head apart to look for jam but nothing in there and am using compatible nails. Also oiled it but no luck. Was working fine doing...


Remove nails and use thin tool to push driver all the way up to top of cylinder. If the gun fires one nail then skips, the driver is not returning to top of cylinder. If no nails fire, then nails are not feeding into proper position. Driver must return to top to allow nails to feed into position. Most common problems are bent driver, worn piston oring and bad batch of nails(head too large). Good luck

Not sure how to load nails into magazine


Generally two reasons for nails not to make contact with driver. Make sure that the driver is returning to top of cylinder. If it stays in the path of the nail feeder, the nail cannot slide into position. Second, nails are not the right type or gauge for gun. Some nails even if they are the right gauge have a large head not allowing the strip to enter into chamber. Remove air hose from gun, check that piston is all the way up, then slide nails into chamber and see if they go all the way in easily with-out having to push. You should see the first nail in place from bottom where nail shoots out. The angle of the nail is very important. most pin nailers are 0 degree (not angled), but others have an angle. The gun should be labeled as to angle of nail. Hold a strip of nails against the outside of the magazine and see is the first nail is in line with the driver path. Good luck and post again if you have other question.

Dewalt cordless nail gun fires but doesn't seem to feed the nails very well, alot of misfires.


Try another brand of nails -- maybe your gun doesn't like those. Also, blow any dirt out of the nail magazine.

D51844 nails jam


The problem that you are experiencing could be caused by several conditions within the gun. Lets work thru the possibilities. First make sure that the nails are correct for the gun. Place a stick of nails on the outside of the magazine with the first nail aligned with the path of the driver. The stick of nails should align perfectly with the path of the driver and also with the magazine. If they do not, don't use the nails. Check with dealer for correct nail. I find that short nails (around 2") will have a tendancy to jamb.
The driver will not travel to top of cylinder if the driver oring/ring is too worn or the driver is bent. The driver should fit snug into the cylinder but be able to travel rather freely . At the bottom of the cylinder check that the bumper is not missing pieces or is cracked. Some nailers have a washer below the bumper that fits snugly around the driver shaft. The bumper and washer prevent too much air from leaking down thru the nose and helps to push the driver back up to top. There is a check valve around the med section of the cylinder that is what actually caused the piston to return to the top with force. You must remove the cylinder to check. Parts are available at www.toolpartsdirect.com. There is also a rebuild kit for this gun. Enjoy
