I am going to use it to replace my deck timbers (treated pine) and also to build a new timber fence,I want to use 50mm nails (dome head gal plated) that came with the gun,but the nails go 1/2 way through the boards is this a trial and error pressure issue?

Bostich RN-46 seems to be over sinking the nails even went set to low depth


Adjust the air pressure on the regulator to about 90 lbs. or lower. maybe higher than 90 but that should help you set the depth.

I Have a N80 Coil Nailer. It was given to me without the manual. I down loaded a manual, however it is not clear how to set the nail depth. Can you advise?


Bostitch nailers used three methods to adjust how deep the nail will set. On stick nailer, there are one or two screws on the lower contact arm allows you to shift up or down. On coil nailers and others , there is thumb screw on side or under the trigger. Finally on some coil nailers, there was a series of spacers that snapped onto nose of the gun. Good luck

How do i control the depth the nail shoots in a bostitch coil nailer


The bostitch nailer pictured along along with your question is a RN46 roofing coil nailer. It has a dial on the front of the nose for adjusting depth. Some older nailers (roofing nailers) do no have a means of adjusting so were set at the factory for best performance. The question of depth usually comes up when lower bumper fails and the nail is driven too deep. Easy test. Remove nails and find a very soft piece of wood. Dry fire the gun against soft wood and measure how deep the driver is entering the wood. Harder test. Remove the head and use any handy tool to push driver down to bottom. Measure how far the driver extends past nose (should be about 1/8 to 3/16). If more, replace the lower bumper. Good luck

BOSTITCH T31-1 stapler & T31-2 STAPLER and NAILER. Both use 18 gauge (very fine gauge wire). Try using 18 gauge Bostitch staples (used in BT model bostitch staplers). Good Luck

I have been installing a treated pine deck, but the nails are been driven in to far, i have tried adjusting the pressure from the compressor but have had no luck is there a depth adjustment on the gun?


Yes, there is a depth adjustment. Most of the Bostitch models have a push button on the left side near where the nails come out. With the air unplugged, push in this button and you can slide the head assembly up or down to make your adjustment. Slide it out for less depth. It sounds like maybe yours is fully seated, providing the maximum depth.

I just bought a used Bostitch Coil Nailer. 3 1/4" nails work fine but the 2" nails will not keep feeding.


Check the spacing of the nail collation between the two nail sizes and also the spacing of the copper wires. Some nailers have a different setting for the check paws on the latch door to compensate for the thinner nails (too much clearance between the latch door and body of gun). Check manual at www.bostich.com for proper setting of check paws between nail types. Good luck
