Question about Porter Cable 23GA Pin Nailer Kit

1 Answer

PIN100 leaves about a 1/8" of pin exposed every time.

Brand new Porter-Cable PIN100 purchased at Home Depot leaves a 1/8" of pin exposed every time. Pins came with the gun, even tried other P-C pins, and the compressor is set as per manual. Any ideas? Unfortunately it was a gift.

Thanks,

C. Stan

I have seen many Porter Cable pin nailers with a bent or broken driver. Easy to check. With breakdown in hand (http://images.toolpartsdirect.com/schematics/portercable/pin100.big.pdf) remove head nut and other parts to gain access to piston/driver. (parts # 60084) Most drivers have the tip missing or driver is bent. Replace as needed. If driver looks good replace driver into cylinder and push all the way down. The driver should extend about 1/8" past nose. Check for obstruction around lower bumper. Parts are not expensice and are available at WWW.toolpartsdirect.com. Please email if you have any questions. Good luck.

Why might my nail guns not work?


Have you lubricated either nail gun? If not, go to Home Depot and get a bottle of air tool oil. It's in tools by the compressors. Disconnect the air hose from the tool. Pour about a teaspoon of oil into the air inlet of the tool. Reconnect everything and try it 10-20 times with no nails in the tool. Then try it with nails. Good luck.

How do I replace the trigger valve assembly on a Porter Cable DA250C nail gun


There is one pin with a retaining o-ring that must be removed holding the trigger arm in - then there are 2 roll pins that must be driven out with a small punch that hold the trigger valve. Once the 2 pins are removed the trigger valve can be pulled straight out.
When you install the new trigger make sure the recesses in the trigger line up with the holes for the retaining pins.

Zero outlet pressure Porter Cable C2002 type 3


The collar tends to break off of the plastic tip and falls inside the spring. I just repaired mine by epoxying the tip to a modified closet-maid wire shelf clip and stacking (3) #78 o-rings on the tip. The clip mod was a tap with a 1/4" chisel to remove the shelf hook, leaving just the "square" screw receiver. As it happened, the screw recess was the same size as the tip. Put a little epoxy into the screw recess, press the tip into it, clean any excess and let it set for an hour. Slip on the o-rings, align all the parts, thread the regulator cover back into place. O-rings are in the plumbing section at Home Depot, epoxy usually near the paints, clips near the wire shelving. Best wishes.

It is a simple drain valve with NPT (pipe) thread. Most likely either 1/8" or 1/4" NPT threads. Any drain valve with the same thread size should work fine. You may also find one at an auto parts store as they are used on automotive radiators too.

Hi psiaak,
You should have gotten all that when you purchased that equipment. If I were you I would go back and demand that paperwork, just because it is a floor model (demonstrator) you should still be able to get those papers. You should be able to go to the Porter Cable web site and get that. Hope this helps. All the best and good luck. Denis.

Yes...the drain valve on the bottom of the tank is just a standard 1/4 Drain Pedcock that you can purchase at most hardware store.
You can also find these in the hardware section of Lowes or Home Depot where they sell the Air Compressors.

Trouble finding 3 1/2 clipped head nails 34 degrees


You can use the same nails that are used for these nailers: Porter Cable FC 350A, Hitachi NR83AA2, Senco FramePro 701XP, 751XP ,Ridgid R350CHA, DeWalt D51822, D51823, and Paslode F-3505. Make sure you purchase the correct shank nail. Nail length should be 2"- 3 1/2" and the shank should be .113" - .131". I have purchased nails for my FC350 at Home Depot and they are relatively inexpensive. Though you have to buy a case of like 2000 or 4000. The brand of nail is Grip Rite that I purchased. Any questions please post.

Porter Cable BN125A won't set nails below surface


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.
