SOURCE: air allways and continually leaks forcably from the top. Bostitch

This nailgun has several parts to the headvalve that must fit together properly to seal. Go to WWW.toolpartsdirect.com for a diagram of this tool. The part called the diaphragm is source of problem. It has thin vinyl walls that will fold over when you assemble. The piston will not cause the gun to leak, just make sure that piston fits snug into the cylinder. Loose oring on piston will only cause low power or the poston may not retract all the way back up. Some piston/drivers had a plastic ring instead of an oring. The plastic ring had a secondary oring under, however not necessary. You can use rubber or plastic, just make sure that the piston is not too tight or too loose. The piston oring is the only oring in the gun that can be cut to fit. It is like a piston in a car engine. The piston rings have a gap.

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.

SOURCE: My brad nailer will not shoot any nails. When I

it sounds like the piston/driver might be stuck or the firing valve is malfunctioning. there are 4 screws to remove the top cap and you can see if the driver is damaged. Also before removing check to make sure there is not a nail jammed in the nose assembly. This tool is good for breaking the pin on the piston.

SOURCE: brand new brad nailer shoots 2 nails and then it

first make sure that you are using the right guage nails and if so I would return it to the place of purchase for replacement., the blowing of air could indicate a jammed nail in the track, look for that first and make sure the driver is retracting fully.

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.

Does the brad nailer only use 2" brads or cam smaller nails be used also


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.

My brad nailer shoots staples without any problem but it jams on the second brad after being freed up from the previous jam. How to I rectify this problem. It is a fairly new stapler/nailer and has done...


Shoots staples fine but brads jam or bend. Check that the part called "guide bar", #35 on the parts diagram isn't getting stuck in the channel of part #30.

The guide bar retracts into the channel when driving a staple and springs out of the channel to guide brads.

The guide bar can get stuck in the channel if it's bent or gummed up. (Bent is likely the result of driving a brad into an obstruction.)

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.
