    I assume you have tried adjusting the driving depth of the nail on the nail gun and are operating it with the correct pressure of compressed air?

If your talking about setting the nails all of the way, make sure the gun is lubricated with oil in the air input as well as making sure the track is lubed as well as wd40 in the nose

Nail gun 58-8434-4 will not drive 3" nails all the


Hi foxden503,

Welcome to fixya!

As a general rule, framing nailers use anywhere from 45 to 120 psi to drive nails. But this also depends on the hardness of the wood.
The nail head should be flush with the surface. If it sticks above the wood, increase the pressure a little bit at a time until you achieve this goal.

Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate your vote. Thanks,

Handie Andie

Hitachi nail gun,piston/nail push rod wont retract after pushing nail (stays protruding out of gun so the remaining nails stay underneath it


You have one or more worn o-rings in the head of the gun. They direct the air to the proper parts of the gun to first drive the nail then to return the driver to the top of the gun for the next nail. Depending on the manufacturer and your model number, some companies make kits to replace the o-rings (always replace all of them). For some companies you have to get a breakdown of the gun and order each o-ring seperately.

Air leaking out of trigger and drive pin wont recoil it will shoot one nail then drive pin wont go back you have to unhook airline and manually push pin back.


To fix this problem you will have to disassemble the gun to get at the trigger area. Look for a broken "O"-ring. This is probably jamming the recoil of the drive pin.

A good-quality starter set, including both a compressor and a small nail gun, can be bought for around 200 US dollars (USD). More sophisticated models can reach 1000 USD or more. Optional features such as a hard-shell case, safety trigger, and depth adjustment can drive the price even higher. For one-time jobs, a nail gun can also be rented at hardware stores and home repair centers.

Nail Guns Types


The real different between nail gun's models are the sort of power supply they use. A nail gun can be powered by compressed air, electricity or batteries, or electromagnetism. Some small guns are powered by butane, a fuel that causes a small explosive charge to drive the nail into the wood. The most common type of nail gun is the pneumatic nailer, which works with compressed air.

How to Install Air Compressor and Nail Gun


Set up the pressure on the air compressor. First plug the air compressor in, then check the pressure. It should be between 90 and 110 pounds per square inch (PSI) for home use. If it is not in this range, turn the knob to the left to decrease the pressure and to the right to increase the pressure. Use the appropriate nail gun for the job. For example, to nail shoe molding to base boards, a standard finishing nail gun would be perfect. It holds any size nail between 5/8 inch and 2 inches. This nail gun could be used for many projects with great results. Check the gauge the nail gun takes before purchasing the nails for the gun. If you get the wrong gauge they will not fit in the gun. You can check this by looking at the information printed on the side of the nail gun next to the model number. You can also open the nail chamber for this information. Attach the nail gun to the air compressor. You can do this before or after you load the nails into the gun. Use the air compressor hose to attach to the bottom of the nail gun. It screws on much like the end of a hose. If you do not have the right size air hose, you can find one at your local hardware store.
