Your nailer, although very good, is rapidly becoming obsolete as many parts are no longer available. When these guns were first made available, a sales rep. demonstrated repair techniques and did not provide repair manual. Owners manual for many models are available at duofast.com www.toolpartsdirect.com has parts lists and many parts available. If you are having a specific problem please post it; maybe I can help. Good Luck

Paslode Cordless Nailer Problems


<p><b><i>Paslode cordless nailers</i></b> are a very common tool used by many professionals and do it yourselfers. These <b>nail guns are a great tool</b> when they work correctly, but can drive you nuts when they do not work as they should. When answering problems that people have on <a href="http://www.fixya.com/"><b>www.Fixya.com</b></a> I come across many questions about these nail guns and why they do not work.<br /> <p><br /> <p>If you are having problems with your <b>Paslode nail gun</b> the first thing you need to do is get the <b>Paslode manual</b> out of the box and checkout how to <b>clean the nail gun</b>. One of the most common causes for these <b>nail guns to have problems</b> is because of a<b> lack of maintenance</b>. If you do not have the <b>manual for your Paslode nailer</b> you can download one here. <a href="http://www.paslode.com/owners-manuals.html">www.paslode.com/owners-manuals.html</a><br /> <p>They have all of the current models and also <b>discontinued model Paslode manuals</b> there.<br /> <p><br /> <p>The manual will also contain <b>troubleshooting information</b> also. The <b>troubleshooting guide</b> can often help you to find the problem with your tool. Do not do the common man thing and be too proud to <b>get out the directions and READ them.</b> There are many tips and helps contained in them that will save you a ton of aggravation later.<br /> <p><br /> <p>Now, there are a few things that I have found out through my experiences with this nail gun that are not in the manual. <br /> <p><br /> <p>First, When the manual tells you that the tool needs to be <b>cleaned and lubed regularly</b> it means that you NEED to do that. Most problems are because of a<b> lack of cleaning and lubing the tool</b>.<br /> <p><br /> <p>Besides that, <b>gas cylinders</b> are a problem sometimes even if they are new. If you just replaced the gas cylinder and the <b>nail gun will not work</b>, try another one. Also, sometimes the end that goes on the gas cylinders will not snap on correctly or completely. You sometimes can still get the cylinder into the gun but it will not work because the top is not attached completely or correctly.<br /> <p><br /> <p>Check that the <b>nails do not get jammed in the magazine</b> and then not push up to the front of the gun. No nails, no work. Paper from the nails can sometimes cause them to bind up and not slide front. Make sure to always use nails that are only for the<b> Paslode nail gun</b>.<br /> <p><br /> <p>The firing pin can also be a problem. The <b>firing pin will bend</b> sometimes, but usually because of lack of the right nails or maintenance. Another problem that can happen is that the<b> o-rings around the firing pin</b> will break or crack. When this happens the gun may not fire or the pin will not return after it shoots a nail. If you are having these problems then check the o-rings both top and mid-pin to make sure they are in good shape. If they are chipped or cracked in anyway the gun will not work correctly.<br /> <p><br /> <p>The <b>battery contacts</b> on these nailers are also a problem. They can get dirt and dust in them or become bent. If they fail to make good contact they can cause the gun to have all types of problems. If you are having unexplained problems then<b> check the contacts of both the battery</b> and the gun. You can clean them with a soft cloth or sometimes with a pencil eraser.<br /> <p><br /> <p>The last but least likely problem is the<b> internal wiring in the nail gun</b>. Because of the violent nature of the gun firing the wiring takes a beating inside the nail gun.<b> Every time the gun fires</b> the vibration can cause the wires to move just a bit and eventually a wire can work loose. If all other things check out then look for wires that do not go anywhere. If there is a wire floating around that has no home then you have found your problem. After adjusting the end of the wire so it is tighter, reconnect the wire and you will be working again.<br /> <p><br /> <p>As you can see there are many things that can go wrong with these nail guns. Because of this there also are many things that you can find online that will help you. <b>E-how.com</b> has some tips that will help. <b>You-tube</b> also has some videos that will show you how to clean and troubleshoot these nail guns. Doing a simple online search will give you many places that can help you and also give you sites from which to buy parts if needed.<br /> <p><br /> <p>If you need parts for your nail gun, here is a good place to get those parts.<br /> <p><br /> <p><a href="http://itwconstructionparts.com/xcart/">http://itwconstructionparts.com/xcart/</a><br /> <p><br /> <p>

I have got a second hand Duo-Fast CN350B Nail Gun. It is new to me, and I dont have a operating manual for it. I have heard they accept multipule guage nails, is this true? Also can the nail driving depth...


They use 20 degree, full round head, plastic coalated nails. You can shoot nails ranging in guage from .099 to .131 and I believe from 2 3/8" to 3 1/4" length. It is a heavy but well built and powerful tool. It's not made anymore because Duo-Fast has long been sold to ITW which also owns Paslode. The owner of Duo-Fast (third generation, family owned) got very ill with cancer and ended up passing away quite a few years back. I worked as a sales rep for Duo-Fast in the early 1990s. I can not find an owners manual link for you. They don't have an adjustable depth but they do have a flush adapter. Here is a link to a parts diagram. The flush adapter is part number CN-133 and is held on with a screw.

Nail stuck in gun- duo-fast framing nailer


In our shop we have a lot of broken drivers to fit various nailers to use as driver punch.
So that the driver punch does not also get stuck, you must grind the side of steel to allow for wedged nail. Sometimes you must hit the punch very hard. It could crack the head, so if very stuck, remove head and cylinder parts and place body of gun against piece of wood. Not all guns can be saved. Also, hitting driver steel can eject pieces of metal, wear proper protective gear and secure area. After you free the driver, check surface of point for deformation. Good luck

Fires 2 & 3 nails every so often.


Most all nail guns can be converted to single fire, however, usually parts must be changed. Some brands have two positions on the trigger, others have a button position near the trigger to accomplish same. Check with dealer or email your gun model # and I will explain your to fix. For now you can replace the spring on the safety with one slightly stiffer. Also try nailing with trigger depressed and quickly bump the gun to fire, this method usually works better than placing the gun in position then firing. Good luck with your repair.

Nail Guns comparison


For every nail that a normal human with a hammer could hand drive on his best day, a pneumatic nailer would drive and set twelve! That is no exaggeration. Although there is no need to go this fast, a reasonable speed would allow you to be 400 to 800 percent more productive. Nailing large subfloors and roof decks is a breeze. Hours worth of work becomes minutes.

Nail Guns costs


A good-quality starter set, including both a compressor and a small nail gun, can be bought for around 200 US dollars (USD). More sophisticated models can reach 1000 USD or more. Optional features such as a hard-shell case, safety trigger, and depth adjustment can drive the price even higher. For one-time jobs, a nail gun can also be rented at hardware stores and home repair centers.
