SOURCE: How do you safely remove jammed nail gun?

Not sure exactly what Bostitch framer model you have, but if it is powered by compressed air, as long as you remove the air hose from the nail gun, there should be no risk of the nail gun firing while you remove the jammed nail. There should be a way to access the driver area from the top of the nail gun, even via a latch or a couple screws. Remove the top part of the driver area and that should give you access to the jammed nail, which you can remove. Use long nose pliers or something similar if the nails are really stuck.

You have to oil the nailer with pneumatic oil, or you're using the wrong size nail

SOURCE: The nails keep jamming; getting stuck half way out

Hello Holly, either you are using the wrong nails, or the nailer's driver is worn, causing it to skip over the head of the nail. If this unit has a spring loaded "door" on the front of the nose, its possible the spring has lost its strength, allowing the nose to partially open during operation. Without knowing the brand and model of the nailer, I can only speak in generalities, but I would think the best solution is either the first two problems.

The gun will fire the first time but will jam when i try to fire it again.


Assuming that the gun will not jam with nails removed and the driver returns to top of cylinder when fired without nails. If the driver is bent the nailer will jam without nails. Jamming is usualy caused by bent driver, driver tip worn (not square), or wrong nails. If the driver is not bent and the tip is square, suspect wrong nails. Easy test. Place a strip of nails on outside of rails with the nail heads aligned with top of rail. Move the strip of nails toward the nose if gun. With the heads aligned with the top of the rail, the first nail should align with the path of the driver. If the first nail does not align with the path of the driver and the head is angled slightly away from the path of the driver, the driver may strike the shaft of the first nail pushing the nails back into the rails. If the head of the first nail is forward with the nail shaft angled back away, the nail will flip causing jam. The first nail should align with the path of the driver to prevent jam. It is difficult to find perfectly made nails that align correctly. But certainly check the nails with test mentioned above with every new box for accuracy. You might find that you will need to change brands to get a good fit. Good luck.

Ridgid coilnail gun jams and safty jams in place and gun will not fire. also somtimes will jam


if safety is jamming, its either bent or the pin that keeps it in place is missing/broken, you can find the pin right in front of the trigger. now as far as the nails jamming could be a few things. 1. wrong nails 2.right nail but may have gotten a defective batch 3. bucket that holds nails is adjusted to wrong size. 4.nails have been dropped/ squished and coil is not round anymore 5. nose is very worn and two nails are trying to come out at a time 6. driver is worn/broken and is trying to push out two nails at one time

Problem: Nail jam due to improper degree of nails Question: How do I take apart the nail gun so as to get the jammed nails out?


Try removing stuck nails without taking apart gun. Remove remaining nails from rails. Use long piece of allen wrench or similar hard steel and grind the end to allow for jamed nail (I use a broken driver blade ground slightly thinner to allow for stuck nail). Use heavy brass or copper hammer to push driver up to top of cylinder. If after a couple of heavy blows the driver does not move, remove the head of the gun and pull out the cylinder and place the body of the gun on plywood. This will protect the head from damage. Good luck

How do I load nails into the 5700


Here is the link but I copied the instructions here too

Loading Staples or Nails

Make sure there are no staples or nails jammed from previous usage by checking the handle operation.

CAUTION: IF A STAPLE OR NAIL IS JAMMED, POINT THE GUN AWAY FROM

YOURSELF AND OTHERS BEFORE OPENING THE TRACK AS THE JAMMED

STAPLE OR NAIL MAY BE FIRED OUT UPON OPENING

i) Point the bottom of the gun away from you and turn gun sideways.

ii) Turn gun up, grip track release buttons and push away to release, then slide the track out, as shown (fig. 1).

iii) Insert a strip of staples in the chamber with the legs pointing up (fig.1a). If nails are required, turn gun upside

down and tilt the gun away from yourself and load on the right hand side (as indicated on graphics at the

staple and nail exit) with point facing upwards (fig.1b) THE GUN MAY JAM IF NAILS ARE INSERTED IN THE

WRONG SIDE.
*Arrow

iv) Slide staple or nail track back into closed position - a click indicates that it is locked in position.
Your staple and nail gun is now ready for use.

My Task Force electric finishing nail gun is jammed. How do I get at the problem?


The nail gun I have has two hex screws in front where the nails come out. Remove the two screws. Remove the spring plate and cover plate. You should find your jammed nail there. Put those pieces back and it should work. My gun jams after about ten nails so I have done this many times. Make sure you are using the right nails or it will jam a lot. Hope this helps.

Is there any way to free driver blade on nail gun? my gun is the dewalt 20 degree framing nailer


I am assuming that a nail got jammed? If so unplug air to tool, remove the rest of nails and turn it over. try to find a flat piece of steel smaller than the nose where nail goes and gently tap the driver back up and remove jammed nail. If the driver is broken that is a different fix. Hope this helps
