From what I can see at StanleyBostitch.com there is not a repair kit for this tool. Given the age I would take in for warranty service.

Nail cleats are not exiting when the mallet hits on my Bostitch MFN-201. The spring mechanism appears quite loose; you can push it down or in very easily by hand.


That is most likely what needs to be replaced as that is the return spring. If it is weak it may not be allowing the driver to go back up far enough to let the next cleat load into the nose. Here is the parts diagram. Bostitch (Stanley Tool Works) just merged with DeWalt so you can get the part from either company now or a dealer of either company.

Nail won't set to allow tongue to enter groove


Your nailer has variable sized plates /shoes bolted to the bottom. I believe that there are about three different thickness available. Take a look at the link below for a parts list showing the sizes available. For a quick fix to drive the cleat deeper, use a thinner bumper below the head of where you strike the nailer. If you manually push down the striker, you can see how much of the driver comes out the bottom. The bumper below the head (black rubber washer) cushions the striker against the body of the nailer. A thinner bumper (you must be creative here) will allow the driver to extend out slightly more. Good luck with your flooring projects.

My MFN-201 cleat driver will not drive the cleats deep enough into the 3/4 inch prefinished bruce flooring. It postitions the cleats fine. It is on the Rachet setting.


There is a piece of rubber under the head called the bumper. This rubber piece is what stops the driver from forward travel. If you remove this rubber or replace with thinner, you can drive nail deeper. Most likely your driver blade may be worn or where driver blade attaches to shaft may be worn. Tool would need to be disassembled to check. Parts are not expensive and available at www.bostitch.com Good luck

N12 Bostitch comp nailer, need a few inner parts. Where can they be located? An inside rubber piece fell apart.


I have seen these parts available on ebay. They are using parts from old Unicatch roofing nailer and Max cn55 coil nailer. I have an old craftsman lathe and cut parts from other nailers to fit. This is hit and miss and does not work as well as max parts. You can be creative or just buy parts from ebay. Good luck

I am using a Bostitch MFN200 Manual Flooring Nailer and we are having some trouble with it. The cleats go almost all the way into the floor board but are still sticking up about an inch out of the board....


2 things come to mind. I've installed Wood Floors for the last 5 years.

Make sure you have enough Air pressure running to the stapler,
and Second, Whack the hell out of it. You can be rough with it. Their designed to take a beating

When u hit it with the mallet, youre opening a valve which shoots the piston and drives the staple into the boards. hit it not hard enough, not enough air is being sent to the piston to drive it fully.

I AM HAVING TROUBLE OUT OF MY BOSTITCH MIIIFS FLOOR NAILER


D Farley,
I repair these nailers all the time. Anytime the nail or staple is bending you have 2 causes. Either the stapler has a broken blade, the magazine is loose on the foot gate, or you are shooting into plywood over concrete. that is allowing the staple to hit the cement subfloor. Use 11 /2" staples on 3/4" wood floor over 3/4" plywood when over concrete.
