Question about Porter Cable Cable No. FC350A Clipped Head Framer
I'm using a Porter Cable finish nailer and about half the time it misfires. Sounds the same, dimples the wood, but no nail comes out. It's several years old and I've never done any sort of maintenance to it. I've got plenty of air pressure--at least 100 pounds.
If youve never done anything to it could be a couple things. Have you kept it oiled (about 6-8 drops) before using and again at lunch if construction type work. Check the nails to make sure they move freely in the magazine Check the nail guage for proper size. and what I would do is fire it till it skips disconnect the air from tool and open the front door (for removing jams) and see the driver position. If it is partially down that would be the problem, check the driver for being bent. Lastly remove all nails and just tap the nose on a piece of wood and again check the driver position, if it moves or falls freely then the tool would have to have new rubber which might be a good idea anyway. Get back to me with the model number and I will research and see if they make an o ring kit.
