First, undue the four cap screws that hold the manifold on, re: top of the gun, then remove the "driver blade", with needle nose pliers. There will be a little "***", grab it with the pliers and pull straight out.

Once the driver blade is out, remove the o'ring at the top. Wrap some teflon tap around the crack where the driver blade o'ring sits about two spins with the teflon tape, then re-insall the o'ring.

put back together.

Oil goes in the "air inlet fitting at the back of the gun where the air hose hooks up, just couple drops of pheumatic air tool oil, re: 30 weight non-detergent oil, like sewing mahine oil ect. its available everywhere.

Make sure you install the driver blade the way it came out, so "watch" as you remove it. If the driver blade is busted, or cracked you'll have to replace it, can get them at any tool store or on line. about 20-40 bucks.

should work fine.

You need an overhaul kit for the stapler. Sounds like an O-ring is leaking or damaged causing air to release. If it is a decent, named brand stapler, the manufacturer usually offers overhaul kits to replace o-rings and gaskets etc.

Regarding the oil, you simply put a drop or two of air tool oil into the air connector that you hook up to the air hose. When the stapler is fired, the compressed air blows and distributes the air tool oil throughout the stapler. Usually you only need one or two drops before each daily use, but if you are firing a lot of staples in a day (say 400-500 etc), an extra drop or two after lunch or half way through the project won't hurt.

Put the oil into the air chuck attached to the staplegun every second or third time you use it before attaching your air hose. only a drop or two is lots.

What should I do if my brand new Fasco pneumatic upholstery stapler is leaking air through the tail end...not the hose, but the two holes in the handle? Any suggestions?

Hi Anonymus,

What's happened if the driver blade has stopped in mid stroke, the air will escape. Quickest was 'round this is to take the airline off the tool, then find some scrap wood, place the tool on it as though you're firing it, and in THIS ORDER... pull the trigger and re-connect the airline at the same time. This usually sorts this out. Regardless of the tool make and model this will happen to most users sometime....

Can't find staples for this unit

If you know the size it needs, you can get replacements from, or both of these should have what you need.

MY PNEUMATIC STAPLE GUN WON'T WORK/ looses air through firing lever.How do I repair it? Where do I put the oil in?

I would agree with rowdy that the make and model number are essential to getting the right parts - If you have that information, just find a dealer that supports your brand. That being said, air leaking out the trigger area is likely to be an O-Ring or Seal problem. Pneumatic staplers have O-rings and Seals that need to be replaced periodically. Most have rebuild kits available that contain all the O-Rings and Seals that need to be replaced. Many staplers have O-rings and/or Seals on or near the trigger shaft that can wear and allow air to leak out
