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

My passlode 18 guage finnish nailer fires intermittently. Gas catridgev is good and battery is charged.it now only fires twice after it has been idle for a few minutes.Is this an easy fix?


This is awkward to diagnose. Sounds like a gas problem. Ensure the gas cell is in date. paslode print use by date on bottom. next ensure valve fitted to cell is correct normally yellow. When stopped firing press gas cell door (actuator) does it fire one more time? If yes it could be the actuator getting weak I have seen this cause similar problems to what you are experiencing.

Dewalt dc618 wont fire


firstly its always better to change both of the bands even if one is broken this always keeps the drive trim.all seems well clean all the contacts ie battery and gun (do not use any cleaning products this will cause grease)just wipe clean with paper towel.

I need stainless nails for Makita AF505 nail gun


Your nailer uses 18 guage straight nails, from 5/8" to 2" long. As long as you meet these requirements it doesn't matter if they are basic bright, galvanized or staniless nails. If you Google or Bing search "18 guage stainless steel nails" you will find several mail order places that carry the nails you need. Not very many places carry stainless steel nails in stock because of their cost. Unless you live in an area where their use is predominant you will have to order them.

I just bought the Bostitch SB1850BN 18 gauge brad nailer with the Bostitch CAP2000P-OF air compressor. When I hook the hose up and start the compressor, I cannot get the nailer to fire a nail. Only air...


Check the position of the switches and selectors. It sounds like you are in between settings. Also, put in a few drops of oil, and try your gun out on scrap wood, so oil doesn't come out on your good work.

Dewalt cordless nail gun fires but doesn't seem to feed the nails very well, alot of misfires.


Try another brand of nails -- maybe your gun doesn't like those. Also, blow any dirt out of the nail magazine.

Doesent fire all the time has new gas and battery and tool is brand new


How new is brand new, Paslode has a pretty good warranty and if it is that new I would take it back and let them fix it. If not give me the exact model number and I will try and find a print and see what I can come up with.

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.
