The problem that you describe is caused when the driver is not returning all the way back up to the top of the cylinder not allowing the nails to enter into position . You may have one of several problems including worn piston oring, bent driver, worn check valve, worn lower bumper, or low air pressure. Simple test is to manually push the driver blade back to top using a thin piece of metal that fits into bottom of gun. Be sure to disconnect from air supply when doing this. Good Luck

My pneumatic nailer


ok, so your nails are correct size gauge, and the right length too?? sometimes when shooting at 120psi into pine the nail is blown through the material. test it on something first something thinner that you can see if its working at all, or put in like 5 nails and see after you shoot if you still have 5 nails in the magazine.
if so make sure, nothing is obstructing the magazine chute to the driver, also make sure the nails are in the correct slot for them to be struck. keep me posted.

My Senco SFN1 finish nailer will not shoot a nail. When the trigger is pulled air comes out but no nail is shot. Thanks,Steve L


Not sure about Senco but most have latch you can open to expose firing mechanism. Nail sometimes gets jammed and will not allow driver to fire or if not nail push driver ****** all the way back into gun then see if gun will fire.

Do I need to lubricate my Bostitch F21PL nailer from time to time? The reason I asked is, I got this new nailer. Installed Galvanized 2.5 inches nails from Bostitch and with the metal connector installed....


This is a fantastic nailer, very powerfull. Information about your nailer can be found below.

http://www.bostitch.com/default.asp?CATEGORY=BOS_FRAM_NAILER&TYPE=PRODUCT&PARTNUMBER=F21PL&SDesc=21%26%23176%3B+Industrial+Framing+Nailer+System

You should not need to lube the rails for the nails to feed. Your nailer uses plastic collated nails and should travel very easily inside the rails. I would remove all the nails and check for broken pieces of plastic from nail strips. Feeder should feel snug within rails and not wobble and spring should pull tight. When you install the nails do not release feeder against the nails with force as this could break the plastic strips and cause jam. Nail not feeding is usually caused by wrong nails, weak pusher spring or pusher guides broken /missing. Simple test for proper nails.
Place a strip of nails on the outside of the rails aligned with the edge of the rails and see if the first nail is perfectly aligned with the path of the driver. If the head of the first nail is angled back slightly from the path of the driver, the nails will not feed properly. Good luck.

How do you set up the bostitch coil framing nailer for contact nailing?


Bostitch nailers have two triggers available. Black trigger is rapid fire while the gray is single shot. Both triggers are usefull depending on type of work. Most people say that there is a degree of accuracy with single shot allowing for better placement of nail. If speed is your goal then use the black trigger to bump fire. More information and parts can be found at www.bostitch.com , look for "Support" tab, then "service / parts " find your model number from the pull-down list and search for the manual and parts list for needs. Good luck on your projects.

My bostitch rn46 seems to double or triple shoot nails frequently. Am I not using the tool properly or could there be a mechanical problem with the tool?


if u are right nails for gun,then make sure when u put coil in and feed in front of firing pin the nails are straight with pin and connecting wires are not bent causing nails to fall out of alingnment.
