Edited: I have the Oster Cordless Nail Filer and it is a two speed pet nail battery operated trimmer. It works fine on 1 speed but when I flick it over to the 2 speed it does nothing. Ever heard of this problem? Cheers Leigh :)

It seems as if the Battery is low, Or the teeth that control the movement is burned up of such when you use your wipers on your car, but if the moter starts to act up it will slow down the moter on the wiper and may start to make a noice, GL

Very nice tool indeed. I have had mine since they first released it to the public but I have never had any problems with either size brads. Have you ever dropped the fastener? Check your rail for bends as it may cause the longer brads to be binding. If there are no bends, detach the rail and look to see if there is debris within the rail preventing a 2" length from advancing that would not otherwise affect the 1.5". If none of this seems to be the problem, return the brads to the store for replacement as the defect may be within the brads themself. Hope this is helpful.

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

SOURCE: bostitch n80sb 1 framing nail gun shoots 2 nails

I would think a part other than the magazine. I would first check the condition of the nose to make sure it is not just worn out. Also check the driver for the end being flat and the back side (toward nail)not worn excessively and lastly check the O ring on the piston. Starting with nose unplug air and look to see if oval and then bounce the tool without air and see if the piston drops from the rest position. If so that is where I would start. Let me know if something other than this and I will try and help. I have worked on quite a few of these. If I have helped you would you please rate my response accordingly. Thank you

The only time you would use 1 1/2" nails for 3/4" wood is if the flooring is being place on plywood over concrete.

Easiest way to trim dog claws toenails?

I always had problems clipping my dogs toenails before I discovered this simple trick. I set my dog up on my outdoor table. It puts me at the comfortable level to trim the nails first of all, and best of all my table has an open filagree pattern. When the dog stands on the table I noticed some of the nails extend into an open place in the table- bam- I was able to cut the nail without the dog knowing I was using the
trimmer. To get each nail, I have to nudge my pet a bit to get one nail at a time into one of the open spots. If you don't have a table like this, be creative, try a wire rack placed on a cabinet, it bends the nails in a natural position to cut just the ends of each nail.

Stop working.sounds like its working but doesnt go threw the whole cycle

3 items to check.
1) Is the battery low, so it does not have enough power to drive the nail?
2) Does it need lubrication, like is there dirt or stuff blocking its action? You might need to blow it out with a high pressure air hose and the lubricate it with a light oil, and
3) Is there a blockage or is something slightly bent somewhere? You know, some nail sets are so poorly made they have tiny extra pieces of nails on the nails in the clip.
Be blessed.

ensure the spool is not ended if so replace with new spool of string. also check the retaining screw in the middle is not too tight. undo it one click at a time to alow the spool to unwind when the motor runs

always disconnect your strimmer from the power when doing this also wear protective footware and long trousers, when using such tools.

Try looking up the specific model, for example I have an ACRG clipper. So search how to install a new battery for the "whatever model/ generation the tool is" peticure.

Paslode impulse cordless nail gun,doesn't pull the piston back far enough to catch the next nail, so when I fire it no nail is picked up by the firing pin. batteries are good(new), cylinder is new, any...

This is an easy fix luckily usually it means that the chamber is dirty and all you have to do is open the top front of the gun so that you can see the piston then take a q-tip and clean the area really well sometimes it requires a degreaser and then when you think that you have it clean make sure to lubricate the chamber really well with the paslode lubricant that came with the gun or they sell it right next to where you get the nails. Then the gun should work fine with no problem if this does not work then this means that the piston might be bent and that could turn into a big problem but is still fixable just harder.

Hope that this works for you

Run but will not cut

Are you sure you have Andis A5 or did you mean Oster A5 Clipper, if this clipper is A5 Clipper, You need to check the Lever for wear, The front of the Lever show wear on both side, Like white color and is not squad this Lever is worn. Need to replace. This Lever moves the blade side to side fully. if the Lever is worn the blade will not move fully side to side and the cutter blade the smaller blade will stay in the middle with hardly no travel to side to side and will not cut the hair even if you purchase new blades. Also I would like to mention if the Oster Locking Hinge is worn out and don't have the require tension to hold the blade in place the blade will not cut. How do you test the Oster Hinge on a Oster A5 Clipper,
(1) first close the hinge, in close potion with your finger nail try to open the Hinge, if the hinge slightly open or opens loose the Hinge is worn. if the Hinge is good it will not open or move and your nail may just brake your nail.
Many of my customers run into this type of problem, and the problem can be solve easily by checking these parts first.
One more item I would mention here if replace the A5 Hinge make sure you get the A5 Hinge not the Oster 76 Hinge they are driferrent, The A5 Hinge has on the back two wire's sticking out that fit on the Oster Latch for the A5 Hinge, the Oster 76 Hinge would not have these wire's on the back. I recommend replacing the Latch when you replace the Hinge. I hope this helps any body that have a A5 Oster clipper or A Oster 76 Clipper.
