The dent in the wood is not caused by the air. It's caused by the set that drives the brad. Are you oiling it consistenly? Are the brads the right manufacturer for your porter cable brad nailer? From the information you give it appears that the brads are not advancing correctly or that the air pressure is not sufficient to dislodge the brad from the brad strip on the first strike - it takes an additional strike to break it free. The standard for adding oil is to add ten drops of air tool oil for every hour of operation. That seems like a lot, but the correct amount of oil is a sure way to prevent most air tool problems.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the info. I was not oiling it at that rate. Is there anything I can do to fix the issue now that I didn't prevent it?"

The depth to which a fastener is driven is controlled by the depth adjustment
knob (A) Fig. 19 below. The depth of drive is factory adjusted to a nomimal setting.
Test fire a fastener and check depth. If
a change is desired, rotate the
adjustment knob (A) Fig. 19: the
adjustment knob has detents every 1/4
turn. Rotate the knob clockwise (see
Fig. 19), to increase the depth of drive,
rotate the knob counterclockwise to
decrease the depth of drive. Test fire
another fastener and check depth.
Repeat as necessary to achieve
desired results. The amount of air pressure required will vary depending on the
size of the fastener and the material being fastened. Experiment with the air
pressure setting to determine the lowest setting that will consistently perform
the job at hand. Air pressure in excess of that required can cause premature
wear and/or damage to the tool.
