    I have the same problem with Mastercraft air compressed brad nailer. But the piston/plunger hits the wood but no nail. I notice that when the gun would make a two tone sound on charge, the next shot was a nail. When it didn't make that "pop-lock" like sound, i could shoot all day and no nail. Is that the O rings or driver?

Air comes out the nose of my dewalt framing nailer


Again sounds like blown O ring give it a squirt of 3in1 oil and fire it several times (if oil is compatible in your gun). Repair center if that doesn't work. Trash can also get in the air orifice and stop moving parts from moving.

Craftsman evolv braid nailer leaks air around the trigger when i try to nail. it does not nail sears no. 00915206000 mfg no. 42081 (for kit) on gun model:6G28/F50


Air leaking from trigger when trying to nail indicates that the headvalve is stuck or headvalve orings are dry and allowing air to pass. Remove the head and pull out the headvalve piston. Examine orings for cuts or broken (replace as needed if orings worn and cannot make seal). If headvalve was stuck/dry, lube with plenty of silicone paste lube (sold at Lowes in the plumbing dept. ). Should be good to go. Good luck

On the trigger of my Bostich Spiral load nail gun AND my Bostick trim nail gun air is leaking profusely from the trigger. Nail guns were not in use for about a year. When I first used them this weekend,...


A nail gun works on compressed air.
When you hook the air hose to the gun it fills a cylinder with air pressure.
When you pull the trigger. the cylinder pressure is released onto a firing pin that shoots the nail.
The air pressure line is also connected to the trigger and therefore the trigger has to be sealed.

When ever using a nail gun, you add a bit of gun oil in the back of the gun (not 3-in-1motor oil, it has to be non-detergent gun oil)

If you haven't used the gun in a while, it is best to oil up the gun and let the oil run down into the gun.
If you use anything but gun oil, the seals will give out.

Your trigger seal has given out. It is probably an 'O' ring. You can access it by taking it apart. Look for the O ring.
Bostich makes re-build kits for the different guns that you can buy on-line.
Back when I was in construction, there were several nail gun shops that sold and serviced nail guns, and sold nails to the contractors. I don't know if that business model is still active or if you have to send the guns to Bostich service center.

Gun stopped driving nails, air escapes from top,


has the gun been cleaned and oiled, i think not.

take the head bolts out of the top of the gun. make sure you pay attention to how everything comes out so you can put it back together.

shake the gun upside down so that the piston comes out. wipe everything down with any petroleum based cleaning solvent to remove all the gunk and reassemble.

pour about 10 dropsof oil down the air input, let it sit there about 5 mins and hook up the air and it should work

Can I change the pressure on the nail gun?


Hi there .
First check if the nail gun have a adjustment screw . Depending on the brand could be in the front where the nails comes out or by the trigger. Second check the compressor by the air hose connection you should have a regulator valve with a gauge and see if you getting the right air pressure .
Hope this help

How to Install Air Compressor and Nail Gun


Set up the pressure on the air compressor. First plug the air compressor in, then check the pressure. It should be between 90 and 110 pounds per square inch (PSI) for home use. If it is not in this range, turn the knob to the left to decrease the pressure and to the right to increase the pressure. Use the appropriate nail gun for the job. For example, to nail shoe molding to base boards, a standard finishing nail gun would be perfect. It holds any size nail between 5/8 inch and 2 inches. This nail gun could be used for many projects with great results. Check the gauge the nail gun takes before purchasing the nails for the gun. If you get the wrong gauge they will not fit in the gun. You can check this by looking at the information printed on the side of the nail gun next to the model number. You can also open the nail chamber for this information. Attach the nail gun to the air compressor. You can do this before or after you load the nails into the gun. Use the air compressor hose to attach to the bottom of the nail gun. It screws on much like the end of a hose. If you do not have the right size air hose, you can find one at your local hardware store.
