SOURCE: nail gun will not shoot nails

Lee

Remove the head, take out the blade and make sure its not bent or the tip broke off. Also while out insert the blade into the nose and see if there is any foreign object blocking the blade travel.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: will bosch nail guns operate with Paslode brand nails?

The F28WW takes 28Deg nails that are collated with wire, so your nails won't work in that gun. The N80SB is also a 28Deg nailer so your 30 Deg nails won't work in that gun either. Sorry about the bad news but it looks like your going to have to spring for new nails

The gun will fire the first time but will jam when i try to fire it again.


Assuming that the gun will not jam with nails removed and the driver returns to top of cylinder when fired without nails. If the driver is bent the nailer will jam without nails. Jamming is usualy caused by bent driver, driver tip worn (not square), or wrong nails. If the driver is not bent and the tip is square, suspect wrong nails. Easy test. Place a strip of nails on outside of rails with the nail heads aligned with top of rail. Move the strip of nails toward the nose if gun. With the heads aligned with the top of the rail, the first nail should align with the path of the driver. If the first nail does not align with the path of the driver and the head is angled slightly away from the path of the driver, the driver may strike the shaft of the first nail pushing the nails back into the rails. If the head of the first nail is forward with the nail shaft angled back away, the nail will flip causing jam. The first nail should align with the path of the driver to prevent jam. It is difficult to find perfectly made nails that align correctly. But certainly check the nails with test mentioned above with every new box for accuracy. You might find that you will need to change brands to get a good fit. Good luck.

I have a porter cable fr 350 an it says to use 22 degree nails it i have always used 21 degree nails in it will this hurt the gun


There are many different brands of nails sold for your gun. Nail companies try to sell nails to fit as many different guns as possible in one box(will range a few degrees). I have found that the stated angle is not always exact. To determin the best nail for your gun, place a strip of nails on the outside of the rails with top of the strip of nails (nail heads) aligned with rails. Now slide the nails forware to the centerline of the path of the driver. If a perfect fit, the first nail will align with the rails and the path of the driver. Note if the bottom of the nail is ahead of the nail head. If this is the case the driver will not hit squarely on the head of the nail. If the head is in line with the driver but the shaft of the nail angles back toward the rails, the nail may jam against the nose. Use your best judgement when buying nails. If you have not had a jam, keep using the nails, however test the nail as described above for good fit. Good luck

Jammed nail gun fc350a


Nail guns will jam when driving nails thru very hard wood, solid objects, allowing the gun to double fire hitting the first nail or using the wrong nails(amoung some of the reasons, you get the idea that jamming is common) . There is no special tool to help in case of jam. You must be creative. I use an old driver shaft from nailer that easily fits into the nose of the gun (you can grind a piece of allen wrench to fit into nose and allow space for the stuck nail). The metel that you use must be very hard and strike with heavy copper or brass hammer (caution, steel hammer may splinter metal, use protective gear ). You will need to strike very hard to remove some stuck nails. If first or second strike results in no movement of driver, remove the head and cylinder of the nailer and place the body of the gun squarely on piece of plywood over concete floor (this will protect the head of the nailer from being damaged). Worst case, you will need to remove the rails. Good luck.

My clipped head nailer does not shoot the new round head nails very well. constant jamming or shooting two nails at once. These are the nails stocked by Home Depot and most lumber yards


This response does not speak directly about your model of nailer, however addresses the problem of the nail supply. Generic nail suppliers are trying to sell us nails that are not exactly a perfect fit for our nailers. Nail guns are made for an exact angle and head of nail. Yet printed on the box of some of the case of nails, I see that the nails contained within will fit a variety of nailers with a variety of angles (+/- several degrees ).
You can choose a good fitting nail by taking a close look at your gun. Take a strip of nails and place them on the outside of the rails/magazine with the first nail perfectly aligned with the path of driver. With the first nail aligned with driver path, the angle of the rest of the strip of nails should align with the rails. If the angle is off slightly could be ok. Now align the strip of nails perfectly with the rails. Notice if the point of the nail or the head reaches the path of the driver blade first.
Recall that the nail should align perfectly with the path of the driver so that the driver blade will hit squarely on the head of the first nail over the shaft of the nail. If the head of the nails is forced away from the centerline of the path of the driver one way or the other, you will not get a solid square hit driving the nail true (think of hitting a nail with a large hand held hammer with an angular blow bending the nail). If the nail head is angled too far towards the path of the driver, the driver can hit two nails (the driver will hit the edge of the second nail of the strip).
The driver is designed so that it will not touch the second nail on the strip (assuming the nails fit perfectly). The driver blade is tapered at the bottom on the side that faces the nails. This taper allows the driver to hit the first nails then gently nudge the rest of the nails back into the rails slightly. To verify the shape of the driver blade, dry fire your gun into soft wood and examine the imprint. The imprint will not be round, but "D" shaped or flat on both sides like some Paslode framers. The flat side of the "D" will face towards the rails.
By using the information here, choose the nails that best fit (align) your gun (measure the angle with a protractor) . The lumber yards do not have a very good selection of brands. Try a professional fastener store that deals in nails and nail gun repair. Good luck

I have seen many nails that supposedly fit the senco sn4 nail gun. Some are 31 degree, some are 33 degree. All have paper collating. What angle nails should I search for to fit the senco sn4?


Senco uses 33 degree paper tape clip head, however many generic brands will label their box 30-34 degree to fit several nailers. This practice causes jams in some guns and others work fine. The goal is to save money but could cost more in the long run if gun is damaged. You can use generic (other than 33) if you take a strip of nails and place them against the outside of the rails aligned with either the line of driver path of angle of the rails. This will give you a visual as to the alignment. Best result is when the complete nail is in line with the path of driver. Next best result is when the head is in the path of driver and point of nail is slightly away from path, worst is when point hits path and head is back. Good luck

Wiil a 22 degree Paorter Cable FR350A Round Head


No... it will fire 21-degree nails and perhaps 23-degree nails (but sont think they exist) and it is a full-head framing nailer so it is designed for firing round head nails. Using clipped nails will likely jam the nailer as these nails are stripped closer together with overlapping heads in the nail strip and the FR350A has a full round driver so you will run into issues with clipped nails. If you are having problems finding full round head nails, you can find them on Amazon to fit this nailer. Otherwise any good tool or trade tool store that sells nailers will likely have a suitable nail supply available for the FR350A.

What brands of nails will work in my 15ga finish nailer 1000993


Here are a few tips on buying nails for your nailer. Nails are sold in two basic categories, clip head and full round head. The clip head are lower in price and are usually taped on glued together with no spacing between them. The full round head have spacing between each nail and are held together with plastic. Some nailguns can use both types. It is important to verify the angle of your gun. To measure the exact angle use a straitedge along length of rails and a protractor at the barrel of the gun. Place the protractor on the barrel with the 90 and 0 degrees aligned with the barrel and hold the straitedge aligned with the rails and the 0 degree mark. Read the angle. You may find that your gun measures a different angle. Nails are sold from 0 to 34 degree. 34 degree is usually clip head for Paslode, Senco, Hitachi and other brands. I find that many brands of nails do not list the angle, but list the name of the gun instead. This makes it difficult for non-branded guns. Take the protractor into the store and measure the angle of the nails or place the nails on the outside of the rails to see if they align with the barrel. Shop several stores because nails vary by brand. Once you verify the perfect fit, ask for a sample strip to try in your gun. When you identify the angle and type, use this information to shop for price. Most nails are imported from around the world, however there are nails still produced in the US costing more. Home Depot and Lowes do not carry a full range of nails.
=Google the internet for more info on nails such as www.nailzone.com. They sell a 33 degree nail that may fit your gun. Good luck and email me or post again with more questions.

How to Install Air Compressor and Nail Gun


Set up the pressure on the air compressor. First plug the air compressor in, then check the pressure. It should be between 90 and 110 pounds per square inch (PSI) for home use. If it is not in this range, turn the knob to the left to decrease the pressure and to the right to increase the pressure. Use the appropriate nail gun for the job. For example, to nail shoe molding to base boards, a standard finishing nail gun would be perfect. It holds any size nail between 5/8 inch and 2 inches. This nail gun could be used for many projects with great results. Check the gauge the nail gun takes before purchasing the nails for the gun. If you get the wrong gauge they will not fit in the gun. You can check this by looking at the information printed on the side of the nail gun next to the model number. You can also open the nail chamber for this information. Attach the nail gun to the air compressor. You can do this before or after you load the nails into the gun. Use the air compressor hose to attach to the bottom of the nail gun. It screws on much like the end of a hose. If you do not have the right size air hose, you can find one at your local hardware store.
