SOURCE: Bostich N80 Framing nailer

Sorry about the delayed response. This unit needs to have the O-rings replaced. The return of the firing pin is not happening correctly. This means that the pressure release holes are still engaged. When the pin pushes out the nail, the return should cause the holes to get covered. If there is an air leak, the return will not complete resulting in an even larger air leak which is what you are now seeing. This is a relatively simple repair for any shop that handles these and would be considered a standard maintenance effort. These are decent tools and with proper maintenance will last for years. Mine is over 22years old and going string.

SOURCE: constant air leak

Sounds like you need a repair kit or take to a tool company that installs the kit.

Nailer is shooting air out of trigger, is not releasing brad


Sounds like the head valve. Remove the head cap take out the head valve, clean, re-fit and give it a few drops of air line oil. Then give it a try. Good luck.

Sounds like air leaking inside won't pressure up & shoot


It probably needs servicing. Strip gun & clean it may have water inside from compressor and/or may have too much oil inside (may have no oil at all and be seizing up). Clean & check O rings. ( I replace O rings during a service). When rebuilding apply a little Teflon grease to the O rings and smear a little inside the sleeve, do not add oil at this time. Connect to airline and check for correct operation. If all OK add a couple of drops of oil down air intake before starting work as normal.

Does the brad nailer only use 2" brads or cam smaller nails be used also


Most nail guns are labeled with the longest nail/brad they can shoot but are capable of shooting shorter nails/brads. There should be a data sticker on the gun, usually on the magazine rail, or at least in the manual that tells you what pressure to operate the gun at, what guage brads the gun can shoot and the size of brads from shortest to longest it can handle.

Nailer jams with 1-5/8 brads


It sound to me that the 1 5/8 brads are not 18 guage but probably 16 guage and they will not work. Double check them first before going any further. You can usually lay them next to the smaller ones that work and see the size difference, if not let me know and I will dig deeper.
