SOURCE: nail would not shoot out

The problem that you describe is caused when the driver is not returning all the way back up to the top of the cylinder not allowing the nails to enter into position . You may have one of several problems including worn piston oring, bent driver, worn check valve, worn lower bumper, or low air pressure. Simple test is to manually push the driver blade back to top using a thin piece of metal that fits into bottom of gun. Be sure to disconnect from air supply when doing this. Good Luck

SOURCE: Bostitch nail gun loss of pressure, won't fire nail

Hello. I can help you. The nail gun you have uses 18 gauge brads. I would use only original Bostitch 18 gauge.

The one MM of difference you mention is the reason why you do not have the pressure you did have. Get rid of those 31MM brads and get the 18 gauge. Home Depot carries the Bostitch line. I would go there or to homedepot.com

SOURCE: How do you safely remove jammed nail gun?

Not sure exactly what Bostitch framer model you have, but if it is powered by compressed air, as long as you remove the air hose from the nail gun, there should be no risk of the nail gun firing while you remove the jammed nail. There should be a way to access the driver area from the top of the nail gun, even via a latch or a couple screws. Remove the top part of the driver area and that should give you access to the jammed nail, which you can remove. Use long nose pliers or something similar if the nails are really stuck.

SOURCE: Bostitch Nail Gun wont release and shoot nail

I had purchased a bostitch bt200 and am just now trying to use and after loading the nails 18ga 2" brads made by bostitch connecting to a small compresor that had 20 psi I pushed the nailer flush with the board and pulled the trigger and had no nails ejected. Is there something else I needed to do, manual was read.

My nailer will drive 1 nail then the hammer slides over the top of the next nail bending it and jamming the gun. It was working then this started.


There are many brands of nails that fit into the rail however the angle or gauge my be a little off thus causing miss or jam. One method to check for good angle is to place the strip of nails on the outside of the rails aligned with the top. The first nail should align with the path of the driver. If off alignment do not use them. With pinners or staplers the gauge is important. Remove one pin or staple from the strip and make sure it fits snuggly thru bottom exit. Too tight or too loose will jam. Good luck

My 601 won't shoot any spikes it just leaves a 1/4 '' indent were nail should be?


If you're getting an indent in the wood from the driver, the gun is working properly. If the gun isn't driving fasteners/nails it's because the nail isn't under the driver when it's activated. Several things could cause this: Having the wrong angle nails in your gun. There is something in the feed path of the nails preventing them from feeding fully into the nose piece. The feed shoe is jambed or feed shoe spring is broken.

What degree nails are used in stanley bostitch n60fn nail gun


I've repaired many nail guns and I can tell you the Stanley Bostitch N60FN uses 15 guage nails from 1 1/4" to 2 1/2" long in the FN1500 series of Bostitch nails. Nowhere does SB or any of their aftermarket dealers list what the angle of the nails is. I do know most of the SB nail guns that come through for repairs are because of damage to them from using other than SB series nails.

How do i adjust the nail depth on my bostitch n80 sb


The part of the gun that touches the work surface and acts as the safety so the gun won't fire unless pressed down on something is two peices bolted together. If you losten the nuts the bottom part will slide up and down. If you make the tip longer, the nail will be left higher (proud) in the workpeice. If you make the tip shorter the nail will be set deeper (counter sunk) into the workpeice.

I inherited a Bostitch N805B uses 28 degree .113 and came with clipped head nails. Will it shoot full round head nails?


I could only find a Bostitch N80SB full round head nailer in their lineup so I hope that's what you have. No it will not fire full round had nails because they are stacked at a lower angle to accomidate for the full head and material used to hold the strips together. Senco does make a full round head nail that fits their clipped head nailers but it does not list the Bostitch nailers as one they will fit into so I don't know if they will work in your gun. The Senco part number for their three inch, full round head nails for clipped head guns is K527APBK.

Leaves about a 1/4" of nail from seating


This can happen for a number of reasons.

1) Insufficient air pressure (should be set to around 100PSI)

2) Hitting another nail or other extremely hard surface (old roofs are known for this)

3) Defect in the gun or lack of lubrication.

Since this is a reconditioned unit, I think that the gun is probably fine. Verify that the compressor has the correct pressure and that the hose is large enough in diameter to deliver sufficient air to the gun. Check the CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute) rating of the compressor/tank combo against the requirements of the gun.

Keep us posted,

Dan

Not sure how to load nails into magazine


Generally two reasons for nails not to make contact with driver. Make sure that the driver is returning to top of cylinder. If it stays in the path of the nail feeder, the nail cannot slide into position. Second, nails are not the right type or gauge for gun. Some nails even if they are the right gauge have a large head not allowing the strip to enter into chamber. Remove air hose from gun, check that piston is all the way up, then slide nails into chamber and see if they go all the way in easily with-out having to push. You should see the first nail in place from bottom where nail shoots out. The angle of the nail is very important. most pin nailers are 0 degree (not angled), but others have an angle. The gun should be labeled as to angle of nail. Hold a strip of nails against the outside of the magazine and see is the first nail is in line with the driver path. Good luck and post again if you have other question.

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
