Powerfast electric nail gun

I have a Power Fast brad nailer. I'm trying to use 5/8" brads, but it keeps jamming. Don't have the same problem with 1" brads. Is there a fix?

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: will only shoot one brad and then stops

its problem is too much oil or not enough. never the less, it needs taken apart and cleaned and inspected. make sure you are shooting the right guage and brand hardware. generic doesnt always work.

How do I load the stapler?


No you don't. We answer most things here.

If the stapler is like any of these

http://www.amazon.com/s?ie=UTF8&page=1&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Abostitch%20staple%20gun

You push the back in slightly to unlatch it and then drop it down a bit and the staple pusher comes out completely.

Misfires new gun


If your using refills that have wire holding the nails together.
Check to see if bits of wire, debris is collecting in around the striking hammer. I switched to paper and never looked back. Must have gone through 5k worth of nails and rarely jams. Other things to check,
1. Check the striking hammer, make sure it is not bent or damaged.
2. Check air pressure, Low pressure can cause jamming, misfires.
3. If the tool needs pneumatic oil, 2-3 drops before you start good rule of thumb.
4. Check spring return. Sufficient pressure must be maintained or the nails will not feed properly. Misfires, incorrect feed, jamming etc.
I had a Hitachi brad nailer and it was horrible. Fire 1 brad nail would jam or misfire. Did everything I could think of nothing worked. Put it up, got a Rigid brad nailer and never looked at the Hitachi again. :)
Sometimes you just get a lemon! (PS I understand you have a framing nail gun. Brad nail gun above is used for an example)
Hope this helps

A 1 1/4" brad nail only penetrates 1/2 inch


Hi, There should be a power adjustment on the top of the driving head. Make adjustments there, and the penetration should improve.

Shooting 2 nails at a time and then jams


make sure you are using 18 gauge brads in the gun. also if the brads have gotten wet or are old, the paper or wax coating on the becomes weak and it will release more than one nail at a time. try different brads in it.
