Question about Stanley Factory Reconditioned Bostitch U/CPACK270 Finishing Nailer, Brad Nailer/Stapler & Compressor Combo Kit
I have a porter cable air commpressor that will not charge past 40 psi. It is a 2.5 horse / 6 gallon. It is supposed to charge to 150. Please help.
You may have a problem still related to the original reason it was reconditioned.
However, you should have a regulator that you set to the tank pressure you want to maintain. Most have a tool regulator as well and 40 psi sounds like that is what it is set for.
If you do have a tank pressure regulator and it is still not charging above 40 psi, then either take it back or pick up a new regulator for under $20 at Home Depot and replace the gauge you have now.
Also, sometimes the gauge will have a needle tilted so that one end presses against the glass, and if you tap the glass hard with your finger it will move on around to the correct pressure.
Finally, if you are not experienced with small compressors, look under your gauge and see if there is not a black knob that pulls out and pushes in to turn and change the pressure.
