SOURCE: air allways and continually leaks forcably from the top. Bostitch

This nailgun has several parts to the headvalve that must fit together properly to seal. Go to WWW.toolpartsdirect.com for a diagram of this tool. The part called the diaphragm is source of problem. It has thin vinyl walls that will fold over when you assemble. The piston will not cause the gun to leak, just make sure that piston fits snug into the cylinder. Loose oring on piston will only cause low power or the poston may not retract all the way back up. Some piston/drivers had a plastic ring instead of an oring. The plastic ring had a secondary oring under, however not necessary. You can use rubber or plastic, just make sure that the piston is not too tight or too loose. The piston oring is the only oring in the gun that can be cut to fit. It is like a piston in a car engine. The piston rings have a gap.

SOURCE: My Stanley Bostitch SB-1850BN brad nailer will not

You may have a broken tip or bent driver. Remove tha nails from gun and dry fire into a piece of wood. You should see a nice little indention. If you continue to hold the trigger and the nailer against wood after firing, the driver will stay in the lower position for examination. Just fire into wood and keep gun against wood while holding trigger and lean gun to side untill you see the tip. If you see broken tip or no tip order repair kit that includes driver, or driver alone from www.bostitch.com or ebay. Good luck

My nailer simply stopped nailing. when I depress the nose and then pll the trigger, I get a puff of air, and that is is. Thoughts?


could be jammed nail, bent or broken driver or stuckpiston. unplug air and thoroughly look at the magazine for jammed nails, is the driver fully retracted if not could be bent or have something behind it and lastly, reemove the cap and look for a broken driver. Let me know if you need more help

I have a Bostitch BT200 that is dry firing. It seems that the "hammer" is not retracting after it fires a nail. I have to push it back manually and even then it seems to dry fire a few times before a nail...


The check seal is what causes the piston to retract. Remove cylinder and examine check seal. It is a small band that covers a series of holes and should fit snuggly around cylinder. Other factors that have effect on piston retraction are, split/cracked cylinder, bent driver and lack of lubrication. This gun is tricky to rebuild. Make shure that all the parts in the head are placed correctly. The kit does contain all the parts that you need. Good luck

My Bostitch SB 2in1 nailer will only on occation nail all the way into the wood. For the most part the nail will bend over before it goes in, which damages the wood. I spend more time tying to pull out...


I ran into this problem many times. Don`t use the Bostitch brand nails. Use the generic or other name brand. You`ll notice the generic one`s heads are just a little bigger and the driver blade won`t run down the side of the nail!
Thanks,
Jeff

Brand new brad nailer shoots 2 nails and then it blows air


first make sure that you are using the right guage nails and if so I would return it to the place of purchase for replacement., the blowing of air could indicate a jammed nail in the track, look for that first and make sure the driver is retracting fully.
