SOURCE: Nails won't shoot

My 18 gauge Bostich brad nailer would not fire, and air came out around the trigger. Even though the gun is advertised as oil less - this is what remedied my problem - a drop of oil. I put one drop of oil in the slot where the brads come out [realizing that is where the driver is located] and left the gun upright for some time. The next time I used the gun it worked just fine. A drop of oil can also be added into the gun where the air hose is hooked up. Do not over-do the oil process, but don't ignore it.

SOURCE: My brad nailer shoots staples without any problem

Shoots staples fine but brads jam or bend. Check that the part called "guide bar", #35 on the parts diagram isn't getting stuck in the channel of part #30.

The guide bar retracts into the channel when driving a staple and springs out of the channel to guide brads.

The guide bar can get stuck in the channel if it's bent or gummed up. (Bent is likely the result of driving a brad into an obstruction.)

Ive had the same problem where it was putting divits you could see from the staples, we ended up changing out the flooring completely. Only thing besides trying diff psi's to get it perfect and different length staples/different heads on staples(nails) , maybe try staple gun. Keep trying every woods different, odd that it started half way through job.. odd.

What part do I need to remove to make a bostich MIIIFS floor stapler to shoot 2 inch staples


You shouldn't have to do anything to the MIIIFS flooring stapler to shoot 2" staples. It is designed to shoot 1 1/2" to 2" staples right out of the box. If your stapler won't feed 2" staples, check the magazine all the way up to the power head for any foreign material that may hold up your staples.

Bostitch Mlll floor stapler drives a staple only on about every third try.


If the tool sounds like it is firing when its struck but its not driving staples, there may be a problem with the feed magazine. Possibly something stuck in the staple slot keeping them from sliding through. Or possible the pusher spring is weak. This spring feeds the staples into the unit.

What is the correct way to place the nails into the gun? This gun uses both cleats and staples. I am using cleats but it does not seem to be working. I may be putting the cleats in wrong.


If you have a Bostitch MIII FN it is only for cleats. Bostitch doesn't make a universal nailer that takes staples and cleats. The MIIIFN is the "floor nailer" and the Model MIIIFS is the "floor stapler"
Maybe check exactly what model you have and ensure you are not trying to put cleats into a stapler.

I am using a Bostitch MFN200 Manual Flooring Nailer and we are having some trouble with it. The cleats go almost all the way into the floor board but are still sticking up about an inch out of the board....


2 things come to mind. I've installed Wood Floors for the last 5 years.

Make sure you have enough Air pressure running to the stapler,
and Second, Whack the hell out of it. You can be rough with it. Their designed to take a beating

When u hit it with the mallet, youre opening a valve which shoots the piston and drives the staple into the boards. hit it not hard enough, not enough air is being sent to the piston to drive it fully.

I AM HAVING TROUBLE OUT OF MY BOSTITCH MIIIFS FLOOR NAILER


D Farley,
I repair these nailers all the time. Anytime the nail or staple is bending you have 2 causes. Either the stapler has a broken blade, the magazine is loose on the foot gate, or you are shooting into plywood over concrete. that is allowing the staple to hit the cement subfloor. Use 11 /2" staples on 3/4" wood floor over 3/4" plywood when over concrete.

With a stanley floor stapler do i nail at tongue or groove


the staple goes in the corner of the tongue, angled back into the board at 45 degrees, to make an invisible staple, the next board groove covers the staple and tongue. The floor nailer is preconfigured to make this joint
