One dealer for this product is:JEB SUPPLY CO Customer Service Contact
Contact this seller Phone: 717-729-1056 , Some parts that seal inside nailers are actually vinyl seals called cylinder seals or firing valves that snap on the actual part, these parts must be replaced with like parts, however if you are handy with simple tools you can make a gasket very easily if the part that you are describing is bolted between two flat surfaces. You can make this gasket out of automotive gasket material. Pay attention to the thickness if the old gasket and buy the thickest material that you can find. In most cases gasket material sold at auto parts stores is thin but you can use two or three layers to make your gasket. Do not use cork gasket material. Layer two or three pieces of gasket material cut larger than you need and staple them together around the edges so that they will not shift. Coat the surface of the nailgun with light oil and press the gasket material firmly against metal to imprint pattern. Cut out gasket a little larger than imprint both inside and out and punch holes where necessary. Make sure to punch a small hole for any vents other than bolt holes. Tighten bolts very firmly. Good luck with your project. Please post again if you have more questions.

What degree nails

Hi, Senco 601's use a 34 Degree Strip nail. Easiest way to remember is this when thinking of Senco strip nailers:
601 and 651 are 34 Degree clipped head nails
602 and 652 are 20 Degree FULL round head nails

Can My FC 350 A used 28 degree nails

The manual for your gun specifies 34-degree nails from 2 to 3 1/2 inches long. 28-degree, wire collated nails are a Stanley-Bostitch thing and they only work in their nail guns, they will not work in your nail gun. You need 34-degree, paper-tape collated nails. I know Senco framing nails will work in your gun and I think Duo-fast makes 34-drgree nails but check that before buying them.

I have a magnum air 33degree gun, i removed the head cap to replace blown gasket, when i put it back on the gun will not fire.

Check the alignment of the of the gasket in reference to the small hole on the sealing edge(gasket has four bolt holes and one vent hole). This small hole allows air to vent from the upper part of the head when you depress the trigger casuing the gun to fire. If the gasket seals the hole or if air is leaking past the orings in the head vale the gun will not fire. If you hear air leaking from trigger when you attempt to fire the gun, most likely orings are not sealing. Remove the headvalve and lube the orings. If no air leaks from trigger when your attempt to fire, vent hole blocked. Good luck with your repair.

I have a Spotnails Framing Nailer MNS-5 and need a manual or a list of nail types i can use.

The nails for these guns are no longer produced by Spotnails. I am a Spotnails dealer and you can have them made by special order but the cost is not worth it. Buy a modern gun that uses something more common like the Paslode/Senco style 34 degree clipped head nails or a coil nailer. The MNS5 was a good tool but used an odd nail (I believe it is 15-17 degree without looking it up) and the tool has long been obsolete. It's too bad as I still have some parts and guns.

I have a Magnum Air framing nailer with a blown out gasket. Does anyone know where you can get parts for these?

Belive it or not you can get all of or at least most of these parts at a good hareware store . Air nailers are all Orings if you can take it apart then take the Orings with you match them up exactly it may cost you 2 or 3 dollars to completely rebuild this gun i have about 10 differant nailers and do this when ever one sticks . Put a water trap on your compresser and shout some WD40 into the air inlet on the gun before you use it and this will make the gun last much longer

I have an air leak, where can I purchase a gasket set for my framing nailer

Best place for parts is They do not sell a gasket kit. The parts are listed individually. oring kits are available on ebay for about 20.dollars. Use key search "hitachi oring kit". If you have question about your leak and specific cause of leak post again with exact area of leak. Good luck with your repair

I have a 34 degree Campbell Hausfeld framing gun and after connecting it to the air compressor and with 125 lbs. air pressure I click the trigger and it doesn't fire.

May just be a stuck headvalve or safety is not pushing trigger pin all the way into trigger valve. If trigger pin is being pushed up all the way into valve, check headvalve. Remove head and try to press in headvalve with thumbs. If it feels stuck, apply air pressure to vent hole on gasket surface to pop it out. Apply silicone paste lube to surface and orings. Re-install and check. If head valve was not stock, lube and replace head.

Dewalt framing nailer

Dewalt makes a great line of nailers and has a good network of factory repair centers with helpful repair department. Their web address is . Click on service/support button then look for Instruction Manual button to download your manual. When search window appears enter your model number. You can also view a parts list and order parts. I have a very old dewalt nailer that was not listed on their website but my local service center made me a copy of theirs at no charge. Good luck.
