Question about Hitachi NV65AH Siding Nailer, Coil, Wire/Plastic Sheet Collation
Yes there are many different kinds of siding nails from all over the world. Stores that sell nails buy/import nails from where-ever the labor/cost is cheapest. The importer uses a private label so the nails from one company in China will produced according to requirements and will be sold under many different brands in the US. The result is that the nails are not exactly the same from batch to batch. I have seen coils that measure from 3/16 to 1/4 inch between the nails. Closer to 1/4 inch is more ideal for your nailer. The (nv65ah) is listed as a 16 degree canister angle, however you probably purchased 15 degree nails because nothing else is available. Should be no problem assuming everything is working ok. When you insert nails into feeder, make sure that the first nailhead is positioned under the driver and not too far to the edge because the driver will bend the nail if not hitting dead center to the nail shaft. Ask for a sample section/ roll of different brands and type of nail to find the best nail for your gun. Best place to find nails is a fastener company that only sell nails/ nailers/compressors to contractors. For best results, make sure that the driver is squared/flat at the tip. If is not, remove the driver and grind it flat (do not grind too much). If driver and nails check out ok, then it may be time to replace springs/orings in feeder area. Go to www.toolpartsdirect.com and take a look at the breakdown of your gun and notice that there are several springs in the feeder area that will weaken over time/use. There should be two springs in doorlatch area, one on the feeder itself, and one large spring pushing on the feed piston. Good luck with your issue and email if you have question.
