SOURCE: how do you clear jammed nails?

you gotta get rough with it. The inside of these guns are are real durable. Be sure to unplug the air hose first!!! take out all the nails and leave loading spring to the rear. If it will not lock tp the rear, figure out how to rig it so it will temporarly. Try using a screwdriver or a nail punch to push the driver of the gun back up. your gonna have to hit it with a hammer. When this is done, use some needle nose pliers to pull out the nails. If this does not work then you will have to break out the allen key set, and pull the nose off, not a big deal but pay attention to how it comes apart. this should be all there is to it.

SOURCE: Porter Cable FN250c wont shoot with every trigger

Worn trigger and or worn firing valve. Remove the trigger and look for wear on contact surfaces (worn pin that holds trigger, worn inner lever inside trigger, worn or loose firing pin in valve ). Easy test for worn trigger. Remove the nails, remove trigger, fire the gun against wood with finger to test for proper action. If it works better without trigger, consider replacing trigger with new (I would also order the oring repair kit that includes the firing valve )

Can My FC 350 A used 28 degree nails


The manual for your gun specifies 34-degree nails from 2 to 3 1/2 inches long. 28-degree, wire collated nails are a Stanley-Bostitch thing and they only work in their nail guns, they will not work in your nail gun. You need 34-degree, paper-tape collated nails. I know Senco framing nails will work in your gun and I think Duo-fast makes 34-drgree nails but check that before buying them.

It won't shoot out any nails...pressure is 108psi,nailer has a few drops of oil in it,nails are placed on lower part of the slide


Are you applying downward pressure to the nail gun against the item you are attempting to nail? Many nail guns have a safety feature that requires the nail gun to be pressed firmly against the object.

Does the brad nailer only use 2" brads or cam smaller nails be used also


Most nail guns are labeled with the longest nail/brad they can shoot but are capable of shooting shorter nails/brads. There should be a data sticker on the gun, usually on the magazine rail, or at least in the manual that tells you what pressure to operate the gun at, what guage brads the gun can shoot and the size of brads from shortest to longest it can handle.

How do you safely remove jammed nail gun?


Not sure exactly what Bostitch framer model you have, but if it is powered by compressed air, as long as you remove the air hose from the nail gun, there should be no risk of the nail gun firing while you remove the jammed nail. There should be a way to access the driver area from the top of the nail gun, even via a latch or a couple screws. Remove the top part of the driver area and that should give you access to the jammed nail, which you can remove. Use long nose pliers or something similar if the nails are really stuck.

Mastercraft Brad nailer piston always fires damaging finish but nail gets randomly shot. Thought it was a indent before nail shot to indent nail since it mostley shoots nails after second shot but lately...


The dial on the top of the gun is most likely the depth adjustment for the nails, this should solve the driver damaging the work piece. Make sure the nails are the correct guage for the nailer you have.
