Stuart - this sounds like an air problem - you should perform the following test. With the air nailer close to the compressor you must monitor the airpressure after the gun fires. it sounds like the air is not gettting through diapram fast enough or there is a blockage in line. Blockage in line is not suspected for the following reason . It sounds like the air hose is holding enough air to fire 2-4 nails and then you must wait for the line to fill up again and then it fires ok. The pressure regulator out to the line controls this and they do fail. try this test and report back to me - I know I can solve this for you as I have extensive background in compressor and the like.

SOURCE: feeding nails

Your nailer shares design features with Milwaukee and Ridgid. All three brands experience the same issue. Lets go thru a series of simple tests to determine the problem. First and most simple test, manually load the nails and fire the gun untill miss-fire. Upon mis-fire disconnect air, open latch and check if the driver is all the way up into the cylinder or is partially down blocking next nail. If driver is down blocking next nail, replace the driver oring and retest. If driver is up all the way, remove nails, reconnect airline, leave latch open and fire gun against rubber (old tire or coiled up waterhose/airhose) this time holding the gun down and keeping the trigger depressed. In this position, the driver will remain down and feeder will remain retracted. With feeder retracted and screwdriver in hand carefully check the spring tension on the feeder (should be rather firm tension on spring and the feeder must retract with good force). If no tension or weak, replace feed spring. When you finally release the trigger, the driver will retract and the feeder should return with good force. If feeder does not return with force, replace orings and spring behind feed piston. If all tests are ok, remove head, check lower bumper in gun for cracks or missing pieces. Replace as necessary. Lube all orings with silicone lube available at Lowes in the plumbing department. (Danco brand) Good luck on your repair and email your questions.

SOURCE: will bosch nail guns operate with Paslode brand nails?

The F28WW takes 28Deg nails that are collated with wire, so your nails won't work in that gun. The N80SB is also a 28Deg nailer so your 30 Deg nails won't work in that gun either. Sorry about the bad news but it looks like your going to have to spring for new nails

SOURCE: Dewalt cordless nail gun fires but doesn't seem to

Try another brand of nails -- maybe your gun doesn't like those. Also, blow any dirt out of the nail magazine.

My 601 won't shoot any spikes it just leaves a 1/4 '' indent were nail should be?


If you're getting an indent in the wood from the driver, the gun is working properly. If the gun isn't driving fasteners/nails it's because the nail isn't under the driver when it's activated. Several things could cause this: Having the wrong angle nails in your gun. There is something in the feed path of the nails preventing them from feeding fully into the nose piece. The feed shoe is jambed or feed shoe spring is broken.

Passlode im250ii


Not much information to go on. first thing to check is the date on the fuel cell. On the bottom of the fuel cell you will find a use before this date. fuel goes bad. next is tomake sure the battery is fully charged (light on tool should be green when you put battery in). With fastners in tool depress on wood. Now you should hear the fan start. Pull trigger and it should fire. If t doesn't, make sure there is not a jambed nail. Open quick release on front of tool. Remove jambed nail push driver back inside tool with small screw driver. Try to fire tool again, you may have to lift the tool again off the wood and press back down. when doing this you are putting fuel in the chamber and you might have to do it more than once. Hope this helps. please give more information if it des not. Good luck

My paslode im250 will not punch pin home


The Paslode gas powered tools need to be thoroughly disassembled, cleaned, and lubed periodically. If you are running the correct gauge nails (16 gauge, straight finish nails for the IM250 and angled for the IM250A) and the tool appears to be working correctly then this is probably what it needs. I do quite a few of them here at my shop and it is the most common problem.

Can i use full round head 3-1/2 passlode nail in this nailer


The FC350A uses a 30- to 34-degree collated clipped head nail which is very similar to the Paslode 34-degree round head nail. Paslode's nails are unique because the round head nails collated very close together and the head of the nail is offset to the shaft unlike Porter Cable full round head are further apart and the head is centered on the nail. What does all this mean? The Paslode round head nail may work however the driver will deliver the blow off center to the shaft of the nail, This could cause the nail to bend as it enters hard wood and possibly jamb the gun. You should be able to exchange the nails (with small restock fee) at a major fastener store (not Lowes or etc. ) with out having purchased them at location because the Paslode nails are very popular and with todays economy the store will gain a new customer. If however you would like to try using the nails, try the following. Remove the head of the gun to expose the driver. Install the nails as usual and with **** of small hammer quickly and firmly push driver all the way down the cylinder to see if nail is easily pushed out of bottom of nose. (You can push driver back up with long thin screwdriver or allen) If successful, replace head and connect to air however lower pressure to 40-50 psi and nail into soft wood increassing the pressure little at a time with each test untill full pressure around 90-100psi. Good luck

Campbell Hausfeld NS2190MVRB 21 Degree Round Head Framing Nailer is jammed. How do I clear it?


Remove any nails in the magazine, and you can carefully take a pin pinch of a size that fits into the nose (where the nails come out). Try to carefully tap the driver back into the gun.This will sometimes clear the jambed nail. If the driver is severely jambed you will have to dismantle the entire unit to separate the driver from the nose of the nailer.
