Question about Porter Cable Cable BN125A Factory - Reconditioned 18 Ga., 1 1/4" Brad Nailer Kit
I have adjusted the depth gauge, but nailer still leaves nail heads exposed about 1/16th inch (regardless of length of brad) ... air pressure settings between 60-100 psi have been used, but same results. Do I have a bad seal somewhere in the unit?
Not sure about the seal, but I do know the pressure has to stay up for this nailer to be effective. Try oiling the gun to free up the mechanics and don't use old nails.

The depth to which a fastener is driven is controlled by the depth adjustment
knob (A) Fig. 19 below. The depth of drive is factory adjusted to a nomimal setting.
Test fire a fastener and check depth. If
a change is desired, rotate the
adjustment knob (A) Fig. 19: the
adjustment knob has detents every 1/4
turn. Rotate the knob clockwise (see
Fig. 19), to increase the depth of drive,
rotate the knob counterclockwise to
decrease the depth of drive. Test fire
another fastener and check depth.
Repeat as necessary to achieve
desired results. The amount of air pressure required will vary depending on the
size of the fastener and the material being fastened. Experiment with the air
pressure setting to determine the lowest setting that will consistently perform
the job at hand. Air pressure in excess of that required can cause premature
wear and/or damage to the tool.
