Paslode 18 gage finish nailer wont sink nails all the way

How old is it. Check the nail drive area to see if it is sticky etc. You may have to take it apart to fully check that out and/or to clean it and lube it. TRY spraying it with WD40 first.

Nailer drives nails too deep

n80 coil nailer is a very powerful nailer used for hard wood. If the driver is setting nails too deep, adjust safety foot to the lowest level. Install safety foot no-mar boot to lift the gun even higher. If still too deep, most likely the lower bumper inside the gun is worn-out or cracked. Easy test. Remove nails and connect air supply. With trigger depressed, push and hold the gun against work (I use an old rubber hose tightly coiled up). This will fire the gun but keep the driver down allowing you to examine the tip of the driver. The driver should extend out past the nose less than quarter inch. If the driver is extending too far, most likely bumper is worn out. If a large quantity of air is leaking out the nose of gun during the test, indication that lower bumper is cracked. Good luck.

Miss fires and wont sink nails depth set deep and pressure over 120 psi

If no air is leaking from gun, miss-fire is usually caused by worn or too tight piston oring or lack of lubrication. Easy test. Disconnect airline, remove nails, point nose of gun up then down. Driver should stay in uppermost position. If driver moves up then down within gun replace piston oring and retest. Set pressure to about 100psi. Good luck with repair.

Fcn 200 sends nail to deep is it bad o ring what do u think?

The two things that would affect how deep nails are driven are the base plate and piston bumper. If the base plate is broken off on the driver side of the gun or missing altogether, the driver would be closer to the wood and would therefore drive the nail further in. The bumper is in the bottom of the cylinder and stops the piston/driver assembly. If it's broken or not present the piston will travel further down, allowing the driver to extend further out of the gun and again drive the nail in too deep. Another remote possibility is that the driver is coming out of the piston. I say remote because usually if the driver is seperating from the piston it won't work at all.

How do i control the depth the nail shoots in a bostitch coil nailer

The bostitch nailer pictured along along with your question is a RN46 roofing coil nailer. It has a dial on the front of the nose for adjusting depth. Some older nailers (roofing nailers) do no have a means of adjusting so were set at the factory for best performance. The question of depth usually comes up when lower bumper fails and the nail is driven too deep. Easy test. Remove nails and find a very soft piece of wood. Dry fire the gun against soft wood and measure how deep the driver is entering the wood. Harder test. Remove the head and use any handy tool to push driver down to bottom. Measure how far the driver extends past nose (should be about 1/8 to 3/16). If more, replace the lower bumper. Good luck

How do I adjust the depth of the nails? I have the Senco FramePro 601.

Most senco nailers have an adjustment on the lower safety. Usually one or two screws allow foot to extend. Others framers have a thumb wheel on the side or under the trigger. If the adjustment is all the way out and the nail is still setting too deep, then fault may be with the lower bumper. If the bumper is breaking up, the driver will set the nail too deep. Remove head and pull the piston, if the bumper is missing pieces or cracked, replace. Good luck

I have a duo-fast n350 ant it sets the nail to deep . any adjustment

Three methods to adjust how deep nail will set. On nose of gun is fine adjustment, move contact claw by backing off screw and moving up/down. Replacing the lower bumper with new part will prevent driver from driving too deep into work (new bumper is more firm and probably thicker). Finally, adjust piston on driver blade by turning then re-apply lock tite (adjust piston head closer to work). Good luck

How do I adjust the depth of the brad nail on the porter cable BN 125A brad nailer

Hello. To adjust the depth of the nail you have to increase or decrease the air pressure from the compressor. Look at the compressor and you will see a knob or dial that you can turn to increase or decrease the air pressure. Do this adjustment in small increments testing the nailer by driving nails into a scrap of the same material you will be driving the nails into on the actual job. Increasing the pressure will drive the nail deeper and decreasing the pressure will drive the nail less deep. Joe
