You compessor is ideal for a small spray gun however a pin nailer requires 80 to 100 psi and a small air storage thank to operate properly. The nailer may very well shoot a short nail into very soft wood at 30 psi, however there may not be enough pressure to push the piston back to top positon to load another nail and fire again. Good Luck

take it back to the supplier for a replacement or warranty fix
however as it is electric there may be a safety switch that you have to engage to make it work as it would go off when ever and spray nails and staples every where.

Paslode F16 finish nailer will not return to start position after firing. Need to pull it back.


You may have to disassemble it BUT it may be that the mechanism and sliding parts are dry and stuck with glue from nails etc so may also work to apply a rust solvent to the sliding parts and let it sit and work the nailer a bit etc.

Mastercraft Brad nailer piston always fires damaging finish but nail gets randomly shot. Thought it was a indent before nail shot to indent nail since it mostley shoots nails after second shot but lately...


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.

Dont know what nails to use on my makita brad nailer


is that a model AF505? if it is, your problem may be the gauge. make sure you use 18 gauge nails, he 16 gauge are too big and will jam in the gun.

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.
