SOURCE: nail would not shoot out

The problem that you describe is caused when the driver is not returning all the way back up to the top of the cylinder not allowing the nails to enter into position . You may have one of several problems including worn piston oring, bent driver, worn check valve, worn lower bumper, or low air pressure. Simple test is to manually push the driver blade back to top using a thin piece of metal that fits into bottom of gun. Be sure to disconnect from air supply when doing this. Good Luck

SOURCE: sparks from nailer

Do not worry.This is quite normal. It is the metal driver hitting the head of the nail.There are no electrical components in a pneumatic nail gun so this is pure metal-on-metal strike sparks. You may find it is more visible on certain nails than on others. But do not worry. It is normal. You may find the sparks reduce after time as the driver wears a little or takes on a certain shape.

All sounds normal though. Do not worry :)

SOURCE: f28 ww framinf nailers. 4 relatively new

It sounds like you are using the wring nails. check the recommended nails and the degree of the strips. there is a large variety of degree's available if it is a Bostitch usually 28* is what your looking for. next the gauge of nails need to match and then whether or not they are paper collated or wire. that will cause problems like that all day. hope this helps

SOURCE: I have a SB-1850BN Bostitch finish nailer that no

Generally speaking an O-ring kit will resolve this type of problem. Check with your local lumber yards that sell Bostitch products. They may have a Bostich Day at which, for a purchase of nails or some other Bostitch product, the manufacturer will give up to 2 tools a quick overhaul including replacing the O-rings.

What causes the finishing nailer to double shoot?

Your air pressure may not be correct. Your nailer should have a recommended pressure and you need a regulator on your air supply to acheive that. Also, do you have the correct nails for your nailer?

I have a dewalt dc618 finish nailer When I go to shoot the lights on the gun start to flash and will not shoot ?

Continuous flashing indicates low battery charge or poor battery connection. If lights flash 4 or 5 times indicates possible control module fault.

Why does my paslode f350S shoot one nail, but not shoot the next nail/

Had that problem on one of mine. If it is a multi degree nailer double check your degree setting. It will always shoot the first but will jam on the second.

Gun doubles, shoots two nails and jams.

Nails are coated and the coating seems to get inside these machines. It needs to be taken apart and cleaned to work properly again
