I have noticed that many nailers do not have a way to adjust the depth. Usually there is a thumb screw under the trigger or on the side of the safety foot. If no visual way to adjust, you must get creative. The bumper stops the driver at the bottom of the cylinder. Adding layer of rubber (inner tube or similar) under the bumper will cause the driver extend less and shaving the bumper will cause it to drive deeper. Another method if to add material to tip of safety to space gun away from work (less deep, using various thickness of spacers like used on flooring nailers) or grind the tip of the driver (cant reverse but if driver is too long grind away) . Buy a spare driver and make adjustment to tip for when you need different setting. Good luck
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.
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.
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 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.
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
