I believe your trigger is fluttering... An O ring kit can usually cure the problem. What model is it?

SOURCE: porter cable brad nailer only fires brad on second trigger pull

The dent in the wood is not caused by the air. It's caused by the set that drives the brad. Are you oiling it consistenly? Are the brads the right manufacturer for your porter cable brad nailer? From the information you give it appears that the brads are not advancing correctly or that the air pressure is not sufficient to dislodge the brad from the brad strip on the first strike - it takes an additional strike to break it free. The standard for adding oil is to add ten drops of air tool oil for every hour of operation. That seems like a lot, but the correct amount of oil is a sure way to prevent most air tool problems.

SOURCE: Brad Nailer not firing. Just a shot of air. adjusting no help

Maybe is time for a service maintenace, this units you can replace all the O" rings, they came in a MaintenaceKit (with instructions) and price is real low., comparing to other brands. Keep in mind, the oil "eat" the clear plastic rings that are inside, that is why u can NOT put a lot of oil , just 2-3 drops Pneumatic oil per day. Also water\humidity from the compressor damage all components inside the nailer. Do not be afraid to open it (just to take a look inside) is 4 screws. of course is the unit is still covered by the warranty take it to your nearest servicenter.

hope this will help.

SOURCE: My brad nailer shoots staples without any problem

SOURCE: does the brad nailer only use 2" brads or cam

Most nail guns are labeled with the longest nail/brad they can shoot but are capable of shooting shorter nails/brads. There should be a data sticker on the gun, usually on the magazine rail, or at least in the manual that tells you what pressure to operate the gun at, what guage brads the gun can shoot and the size of brads from shortest to longest it can handle.

Why does it go through the motions but nothing comes out?


If you are sure the brads are the correct type for your nailer, check the feed path to confirm it is clear.

Mastercraft brad nailer model 57-7900-2 5/8" - 2"


No experience of Mastercraft brad nailers but if fires with out depressing nose tool is dangerous and should be returned to manufacturer. Dewalt make battery powered brad guns and recently produced a battery framing nailer. I would not say that other nail guns are exactly cheap if they are beware they may not be up to the pressures excerted on the whilst firing.

I have NT32Ae2 brad nailer. It worked fine when first used it 2 yrs ago. It now will not pink up brads but the gun will fire. No problem with compressor. The driver will come down and mark the wood.


Make sure your using the right gauge brads for your gun, should have sticker on rail with required brad gauge, and max length. Sometimes a brad will get jammed under drive pin where you cant see, might have to remove allen screws over pin to get jammed brad out

NEW BRAD NAILER ONCE LOADED WILL NOT WORK


Many modern brad and finish nails use a sequential fire trigger system. You have to push the nose of the tool down to depress the safety THEN pull the trigger. This is the opposite of how a bottom fire works where you hold the trigger and bump the nose to fire the gun.

The driver doesn't return after firing. it is a porter cable brad nailer BN200


This is pretty common with brad nailers

Remove the brads from your gun - disconnect from the air supply
On the front of your gun is a latch - open it
Check the sliding surface for build up of dirt or small pieces of metal from the brads.
Once clean polish the surface with a fine steel wool or a small brass brush
Reassemble with a drop of machine oil on the sliding surface
Oil your gun as you normally would
Using a piece of soft wood dry fire the gun 10 or so times to ensure that the dents it is making in the wood are all pretty even
Reload and nail something

No brad


Your anvil is not returning to the home position to allow the brad to index into the receiver. Try and push the anvil up all the way to the home position. If that works, then you need lubrication, new return spring, etc. All related to the anvil firing.

Nailer jams with 1-5/8 brads


It sound to me that the 1 5/8 brads are not 18 guage but probably 16 guage and they will not work. Double check them first before going any further. You can usually lay them next to the smaller ones that work and see the size difference, if not let me know and I will dig deeper.
