Porter cable makes a number of brad nailers (18 gauge) that very quickly suffer from the problem that you are having. You did not mention the model number of your gun but if it is one of these, (bn125a, bn200a, ns100a) kit # 60061 will fix the problem. It costs between 25 and 30 dollars. Google that part number or order from www.dewalt.com. Dewalt owns the porter cable brand. Before you order the kit, check that the driver blade is not bent and stuck. The driver should travel freely down the cylinder. When you install parts, use Danco silicone grease to lube (availabel at Lowes in the plumbing department) If your model # is different from those mentioned above, please email me and I will recommend a repair.

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?"

If you can check nailer on another compressor. If it works check your compressor, if not the nail gun is in need of repairs. Otherwise, reading the two guages on the compressor, check that the pressure in the tank is around 100psi and the regulated pressure is between 85 and 90psi. If not, regulated pressure is adjusted by the knob on the front of the housing. With a blowgun on the end of hose, connect the other end to the compressor. If you don't get any air the regulator may be broken and not letting air through. If you have air at the blowgun the problem may be with the nailer.
