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: Bostitch F21PL Nailer: my nailer does not shoot a nail. I oiled it and st...

I don't have a lot to go on here. Can you describe what does happen? Is there any release of air at all? You can try checking the o-rings for leaks. There are o=ring kits available for under $20 that contain all of the o-rings. Also, proper lubrication is required for operation. If the main plunger chamber does not have enough lubrication, the plunger won't move properly and not set the nail.

Please update this with any details you can.

My pneumatic nailer

ok, so your nails are correct size gauge, and the right length too?? sometimes when shooting at 120psi into pine the nail is blown through the material. test it on something first something thinner that you can see if its working at all, or put in like 5 nails and see after you shoot if you still have 5 nails in the magazine.
if so make sure, nothing is obstructing the magazine chute to the driver, also make sure the nails are in the correct slot for them to be struck. keep me posted.

Nailer is shooting air out of trigger, is not releasing brad

Sounds like the head valve. Remove the head cap take out the head valve, clean, re-fit and give it a few drops of air line oil. Then give it a try. Good luck.

My nailer will shoot once but will not come back up for next shot until i shut the air off and seems to leak air out trigger

Be sure you have sufficient lubrication. You should be adding pneumatic oil to the gun periodically. Perhaps it is time to replace the o-rings (kit available for around $20). I have also needed to replace the trigger assembly once on my gun. This is about $40 for the replacement part.

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.

Only shoot out one nail and get stuck. The pusher pin get stuck.

more than likely, it just needs oil
the gun should have come with a bottle of gun (pneumatic too) oil. You'll need to over oil a little at first with about 8 drops, then about 3 drops EVERY time you use the gun

My bostitch rn46 seems to double or triple shoot nails frequently. Am I not using the tool properly or could there be a mechanical problem with the tool?

if u are right nails for gun,then make sure when u put coil in and feed in front of firing pin the nails are straight with pin and connecting wires are not bent causing nails to fall out of alingnment.

Sparks from nailer

Do not worry.This is quite normal. It is the metal driver hitting the head of the nail.There are no electrical components in a pneumatic nail gun so this is pure metal-on-metal strike sparks. You may find it is more visible on certain nails than on others. But do not worry. It is normal. You may find the sparks reduce after time as the driver wears a little or takes on a certain shape.

All sounds normal though. Do not worry :)
