SOURCE: porter cable roofing gun

The problem that you describe could be caused by three things. First remove the cylinder and look for a black rubber band around the cylinder about med section. There is an indention with holes where it is supposed to be. The band should fit snuggly so that it does not slip off during use. Secondly, check that the piston oring/plastic ring holds the piston in the cylinder without just dropping under its own weight. Third, the upper bumper could have a crack or missing piece. Remove it and check. (vinyl part in headvalve) Parts are available at dewalt repair center or www.toolpartsdirect.com. enjoy

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

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.

I have a hitachi nv 65 ah that will shoot two nails at time


I hope this doesn't offend you. What I'm suggesting is that you may not be using your nail gun correctly. Some people keep the trigger pulled and bounce the gun onto the wood. This technique works okay, but placement accuracy of the nail suffers. The other technique is to place the gun on the wood and pull the trigger USING TWO HANDS! This is the technique suggested by the manufacturer. The problem with this technique is that if you apply insufficient pressure to the gun (USING ONE HAND) the safety is not engage so you don't shoot a nail. What usually happens - I just witnessed this a couple of weeks ago - is that not enough pressure is applied while pulling the trigger so you push harder and end up bumping the gun which shoots a nail - because you have the trigger pulled, but the nail shot was a surprise so it causes another bump (and is more apt to bounce because you're using just one hand). Because it is a machine and can operate faster than your reflexes - it shoots another nail. This happens before you can lift it off of the wood, or remove your finger from the trigger. That's the reason I keep the trigger pulled and bounce it. I know that after the bounce I've set a nail, and can remove my finger from the trigger. When I need to accurately set a nail I always use two hands, press hard and pull the trigger, and release quickly. Only pull the trigger when you know you're about to set a nail, and are poised above the workpiece.

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.
