SOURCE: Gun stopped driving nails, air escapes from top,

has the gun been cleaned and oiled, i think not.

take the head bolts out of the top of the gun. make sure you pay attention to how everything comes out so you can put it back together.

shake the gun upside down so that the piston comes out. wipe everything down with any petroleum based cleaning solvent to remove all the gunk and reassemble.

pour about 10 dropsof oil down the air input, let it sit there about 5 mins and hook up the air and it should work

SOURCE: nail gun- double feed

Nail guns either have a switch or a seperate trigger assembly for two options - automatic, or 'bump' fire, and sequential fire. Sequential firing may be best for you since the nose must be fully depressed and the trigger pulled for each nail.

If you're stuck with bump firing, practice your technique. Double fires often occur when the workpiece bounces back into the nose of the gun; learn to 'bounce' the gun off the material to avoid this second contact.

If you're getting double fires in sequential mode, the problem could be more serious. I keep a can of aerosol silicone lubricant on hand to clean and lubricate the feed mechanism and magazine. Make sure your tool is clean and lubricated before each use, including the 3-5 drops on the air coupling.

Check that your air pressure is not set too high. Overdriving nails reduces their effectiveness and can cause tool malfunction.

This problem could also be caused by worn out O-rings or other parts within the tool. If you're not comfortable servicing the tool yourself, take it in for repair/maintenance work.

Another important thing to remember: With tools like this, you get what you pay for. A cheap nailgun will never function as well as a quality nailgun.

SOURCE: central pneumatic nail gun parts where?

You will have to call Harbor Freight at 800-444-3353. Make sure you have the item number of your nailer. Sometimes you can pull up a breakdown online if you search your item number of harbor freights website. Most of the time you cannot. Also be aware that it takes sometimes 6 weeks to get your parts. The parts aren't expensive but it takes forever to get them. Every once in a while you will get the parts in a week or two. Good luck.

SOURCE: 2 nails shoot at the same time

It could be just from using poorly clipped or collated nails. I have noticed that with some cheaper nails, the clipped heads are not all lined up properly. If a nail has rotated slightly during the collation proccess, the unclipped portion of the nail head protrudes over the previous nail in the clip. This causes the heads of two nails to be struck at once. Another problem I've encountered is collation wire that doesn't shear off with each nail. An ever lengthening strand of wire protrudes into the nail chamber and eventually the driver snags this wire as it drives a nail. This jerks the clip forward forcefully forcing more than one nail into the chamber or causing the next nails in line to rotate slightly, thus exposing the unclipped portion of the nail heads to the driver.

How do I find a manual for central pneumatic 2-in-1 18 guage brad nailer/stapler kit 2 item 97524/40116?


Unfortunately, harbor freight retires nail gun models very often. They only list the current nail gun models on their web site, thus manuals and parts are only available for a short time. The only help is that the new models are similar to the old. Sometimes the internal parts are the same but at least the user instructions should be the same. Download various manuals from similar models on their web site today and compare. Do not order parts unless you are sure about fit. As far as orings, you can use generic also from harbor freight (oring kits in standard and metric, not expensive).
Good luck

Misfires new gun


If your using refills that have wire holding the nails together.
Check to see if bits of wire, debris is collecting in around the striking hammer. I switched to paper and never looked back. Must have gone through 5k worth of nails and rarely jams. Other things to check,
1. Check the striking hammer, make sure it is not bent or damaged.
2. Check air pressure, Low pressure can cause jamming, misfires.
3. If the tool needs pneumatic oil, 2-3 drops before you start good rule of thumb.
4. Check spring return. Sufficient pressure must be maintained or the nails will not feed properly. Misfires, incorrect feed, jamming etc.
I had a Hitachi brad nailer and it was horrible. Fire 1 brad nail would jam or misfire. Did everything I could think of nothing worked. Put it up, got a Rigid brad nailer and never looked at the Hitachi again. :)
Sometimes you just get a lemon! (PS I understand you have a framing nail gun. Brad nail gun above is used for an example)
Hope this helps

I have a Spotnails Framing Nailer MNS-5 and need a manual or a list of nail types i can use.


The nails for these guns are no longer produced by Spotnails. I am a Spotnails dealer and you can have them made by special order but the cost is not worth it. Buy a modern gun that uses something more common like the Paslode/Senco style 34 degree clipped head nails or a coil nailer. The MNS5 was a good tool but used an odd nail (I believe it is 15-17 degree without looking it up) and the tool has long been obsolete. It's too bad as I still have some parts and guns.

I have a N80SB stick nail gun that have been leaking air from the trigger valve but was still able to shoot nails. After 3 months of discontinued use, I plugged in the air hose and fire the first nail


A new trigger valve and o-ring kit will give you a like new gun. Just remember to replace all available o-rings in the kit, lightly grease all of them as you reassemble the gun and use pneumatic oil at the beginning of the day so you won't be doing it again in a couple months.

My 3 in 1 bostitch combo kit didn't come with a manual. what pressure setting do I need each one?


Pneumatic nail guns and staplers are designed to operate between 90 and 120 psi. Use to lowest pressure setting that will seat your nails to get the longest life out of your guns.

My craftsman framing nailer has two nails jammed in head. Is this something I can repair myself?


Yes, just disconnect the air line and get in there and dig them nails out, don't wait for somebody else to work on it. Do it yourself. The front of that gun should lift up and expose the nails coming through, pull them out with pliers, make it clear, then reload and fire it back up and see what happens, a lot of times the generic nails will clog up.

Adjusting airpresure


There is nothing on a nailer to adjust the air pressure. You have to do it at the pressure regulator. It is feasable to mount a regulator at the gun but more likely it's on the compressor. Most nail guns are rated for 90 to 120 psi. Set your regulator to hold the hose pressure between 90 and 100 psi. Using higher pressure to set the nail will ruin your nailer. Use the depth adjustment on the gun to set how far the nail is driven.

Nail Guns comparison


For every nail that a normal human with a hammer could hand drive on his best day, a pneumatic nailer would drive and set twelve! That is no exaggeration. Although there is no need to go this fast, a reasonable speed would allow you to be 400 to 800 percent more productive. Nailing large subfloors and roof decks is a breeze. Hours worth of work becomes minutes.
