SOURCE: Bostitch nail gun loss of pressure, won't fire nail

Hello. I can help you. The nail gun you have uses 18 gauge brads. I would use only original Bostitch 18 gauge.

The one MM of difference you mention is the reason why you do not have the pressure you did have. Get rid of those 31MM brads and get the 18 gauge. Home Depot carries the Bostitch line. I would go there or to homedepot.com

SOURCE: Dewalt 51488. Air leaks around trigger and won't fire nail.

Go to Dewaltservicenet.com and download a breakdown of the tool before starting. I would recoment changing all the O rings and make sure that you get a good grease to lube them first. Its not that hard.

SOURCE: nail gun wont fire

First - the air pressure has to be high enough - check the regulator on the tank to make sure it is delivering in excess of 60-70 psi (which I am sure you have already done).

If you have dry fired these guns (i.e. shot them off with no nails in them while you were lubricating them maybe) the mechanism inside could be damaged. I had that happen to one of my nailers (same brand). That was when I learned not to dry fire them...

Since both of them are not working though I would be more inclined to look at the air supply first.

Dc628 wont drive nails all the way


Its all about power. If you have air pressure and its the right nail it will shoot. If its oak or maple nope it most likely cant drive it up. If your pressure switch has a 90-120 spread, it will work at 120 and fail at 90. You sometimes can good results by bumping it up 5# or so without the pop off loosing its cool.

THE NAIL DOES NOT GO ALL THE WAY IN


most models have a setting on the gun to allow the nail to be adjusted to how far in you want the nail to go into... this depend on the material you are nailing into... the adjustment is sometimes located right at the point of where the nail comes out... usually 1 to 5 indicates the settings..be sure it is on the shallowest setting and that you properly lubricate the gun as well....turn up the psi on the air compressor too and see if that helps you shouldn't have to go above 110psi though to set a nail in a 2x4...

Dewalt cordless nail gun fires but doesn't seem to feed the nails very well, alot of misfires.


Try another brand of nails -- maybe your gun doesn't like those. Also, blow any dirt out of the nail magazine.

What is the proper dept to drive nails


I set my nail guns to drive the nails just flush and then finish it with a nail set if you need to recess them. I find that you can set them deeper but it leaves an ugly mark from the drive hammer that needs to be puttied. The depth of drive will vary depending on the type of wood also. The nail will go in farther on pine versus oak even though the settings didn't change.

Is there any way to free driver blade on nail gun? my gun is the dewalt 20 degree framing nailer


I am assuming that a nail got jammed? If so unplug air to tool, remove the rest of nails and turn it over. try to find a flat piece of steel smaller than the nose where nail goes and gently tap the driver back up and remove jammed nail. If the driver is broken that is a different fix. Hope this helps

Dewalt dc618 nailer is not firing


I have both the DC616 and 618 and have used them sucessfully for about three years. Two main things go wrong. There is a drive belt that breaks (drives the spool that give the energy to drive in the nails), second are two small rubber bands on either side of the drive head that break. The bands can be accessed by taking off the front silver cover, the drive belt is access by spliting the case. Make sure you are using the correct nails or the drive pin may become bent and will jamb repeatedly. Hope that helps!

Nail Gun support


Yes, because there is less risk of splitting the wood grain when using a nail gun than when using a hammer, nail guns are especially useful in delicate projects such as the application of indoor trimming. A nail gun sets the nail in one motion, reducing the chance of slips and bumps that can ruin delicate woods. Most models also include a rubber safety nose to protect the wood from friction.

Nail Gun Problem


Professional-grade varieties are automatic, and fire a nail directly upon pulling the trigger. A semi-automatic nail gun is more appropriate for beginners, since it requires a two step process: pull the trigger and then tap the barrel against the wood. This safety feature protects the user from accidentally firing a nail gun and injuring himself or others.
