Question about Dewalt Tools & Hardware - Others
I'm using an 18 gauge brad nailer to join mitred corners on custom frames. My frames are clamped in a mitre vise and I shoot into the sides. Some of the brads are shooting up and in a u turn- breaking through the top of the frame. What might be causing this to happen? I have cleaned and lubricated the gun and checked the psi several times. Sometimes it works fine, but at times, it will fire incorrectly, once or twice in a row, but then fire correctly.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Nails won't shoot
I had same problem with my brad nailer. The piston inside the main housing seemed to be gummed up and sticking. There was a vent on the top of the cylinder for the exhaust. When I would blow through this vent it would push the piston down and the nailer would start working. This is definitely not a permanent fix but might get you through the current job before you open the cylinder and see why it is sticking.

The dial on the top of the gun is most likely the depth adjustment for the nails, this should solve the driver damaging the work piece. Make sure the nails are the correct guage for the nailer you have.

Make sure to blow out the magazine where the nails load, make sure the spring tension on the nail clip is working properly, make sure you're not holding the clip somehow with your off hand so the clip can't feed correctly.
