SOURCE: air coming out the trigger of a stanley air gun

Go to the Stanley Bostitch website. Click on schematics & parts. Find your model number in the drop down list. There is a list of parts and pricing. Just above the parts is a link for the schematic. Honestly, I worked on these things for years. It is best to replace the entire trigger valve. It comes as a kit with instructions grease, and a little tool to hammer your pins out. Lemme know if this helps. Please rate me

SOURCE: contact head won't retract...seems to be stuck

Two things come to mind, both require disassembly.

First i would clean the area, and then relube the contact head. While cleaning that area and relubing, check the o-ring and the surrounding seals, they may be not properly alligned or sitting perfect.

I don't have a lot to go on here. Can you describe what does happen? Is there any release of air at all? You can try checking the o-rings for leaks. There are o=ring kits available for under $20 that contain all of the o-rings. Also, proper lubrication is required for operation. If the main plunger chamber does not have enough lubrication, the plunger won't move properly and not set the nail.

Please update this with any details you can.

Thanks,
Dan

I have a new Bostitch F21PL framing nail gun. I used it for the first time on Saturday and it worked flawlessly through the first half-dozen nail sticks. Then, it jammed. The culprit nail was easy to...


when you removed the jammed nail did the piston driver move back into the rear position? if not there may still be a piece of the nail holding the piston.... If the piston is stuck in the forward position with the air disconnected use a hinge punch and tap it back, reconnect air and give it a try

Bostitch f21pl air leaking out exhaust


Usually, air leaking from head is caused by worn/ broken seal # 163823 that sits on top of the cylinder. Remove head and observe seal. If it looks complete, however it fits loosly on the cylinder, use rtv sealeant under seal. Otherwise replace. Good luck

F28 ww framinf nailers. 4 relatively new


It sounds like you are using the wring nails. check the recommended nails and the degree of the strips. there is a large variety of degree's available if it is a Bostitch usually 28* is what your looking for. next the gauge of nails need to match and then whether or not they are paper collated or wire. that will cause problems like that all day. hope this helps

Air leaking out of trigger and drive pin wont recoil it will shoot one nail then drive pin wont go back you have to unhook airline and manually push pin back.


To fix this problem you will have to disassemble the gun to get at the trigger area. Look for a broken "O"-ring. This is probably jamming the recoil of the drive pin.

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.

How do you oil a nailer?


first off some nail guns do not need to be oiled, but the gun you have listed does need to be oiled you just drip a few drops of oil in the hole where the air hose connects to the gun, but make sure that you are useing the right oil make sure it is pneumatic oil for air nailers. the gun should have came with some oil if it was bought new if not you can get the oil at Lowes, Home Depot, or any other home improvement store
