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.

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.

Brand new brad nailer shoots 2 nails and then it blows air


first make sure that you are using the right guage nails and if so I would return it to the place of purchase for replacement., the blowing of air could indicate a jammed nail in the track, look for that first and make sure the driver is retracting fully.

Porter cable brad nailer only fires brad on second trigger pull


The dent in the wood is not caused by the air. It's caused by the set that drives the brad. Are you oiling it consistenly? Are the brads the right manufacturer for your porter cable brad nailer? From the information you give it appears that the brads are not advancing correctly or that the air pressure is not sufficient to dislodge the brad from the brad strip on the first strike - it takes an additional strike to break it free. The standard for adding oil is to add ten drops of air tool oil for every hour of operation. That seems like a lot, but the correct amount of oil is a sure way to prevent most air tool problems.

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.
