Question about Air Tools & Compressors
I believe your trigger is fluttering... An O ring kit can usually cure the problem. What model is it?

hi check to see if there is any wear on the blade or even if it is broken if so replace with a new item from your dealer , this will also come with a new seal so with a good clean your gun should bee like new hope this helps ian

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.

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.

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.
