Paslode works intermittently

My Paslode framing nailer will work intermittently when nailing over my head. It works fine at waist level but has the same issues at ground level. Any suggestions? Jim

    Thanks for the help. I adjusted the battery contacts and adjusted the safety foot out to max. I also ordered new pads for both the battery and the fuel cell.

I had a similar problem with my impulse framer. The solution was to adjust the battery contacts within the gun. The contacts were not making good connection with the battery. I also adjusted the safety foot out to max so that the trigger mech. could function more reliably. Other problems I have had with this gun were related to the proper seating of the fuel cylinder and condition of the battery. My battery would no longer hold a proper charge causing the red light error.

I was given a Paslode Sk312 so what type and size nails can I use and where can I buy them. I was told I cant use the round head nails unless I have it re tooled what ever that means


The nail gun you mention was put on the market in 1973 and it is very limited. It can only handle a few different nails without retooling. That means, you will have to have it modified to work with nails other than what it was originally designed for.

Paslode nail gun 325 black not firing


Any time these guns become intermittent or stop firing but the fan still runs, the first the to check is the expiration date on the gas cartridges. The do expire and this will make the gun work inconsistently or not at all.

Will bosch nail guns operate with Paslode brand nails?


The F28WW takes 28Deg nails that are collated with wire, so your nails won't work in that gun. The N80SB is also a 28Deg nailer so your 30 Deg nails won't work in that gun either. Sorry about the bad news but it looks like your going to have to spring for new nails

Paslode framing nailer loss of power.


Here's what I found at the Paslode Troubleshooting Site:
Tool will not cycle - fan runs, indicator light
is solid green.

Lockout bracket is stuck in lockout position.
Work-contacting element is bent, or build-up of
debris in track restricts operation.
Follower is not behind fasteners.
Fuel Cell empty.
Spark wire out of spark plug.
Spark plug is dirty.
No spark is generated.
Check lockout.

Remove and inspect lower probe. Clean and
lubricate track with Paslode Impulse® oil.
Repair or replace lower probe as required.
Position follower behind fasteners.
Replace fuel cell.
Remove cap and check spark lead, insert in
spark plug and replace cover.
Clean tool cylinder head and spark plug.

If this doesn't work, I suggest contacting Paslode directly 800-222-6990

Problem accessing nails


Hi, No you can't. They are two different feeds. The F33 uses tape feed and the N79 uses stick feed. The N79 is a basic wood frame nailer that uses 3 to 3 1/4 sticks, while the F33 uses up to 2 1/2 paper feed. The stick nails are the most common for the older nailers and on the box look for Bostitch as the brand to fit, as the N79 was sold under that brand not Stanley. This should Fixya!
