Phone the company they will tell you where your nearest dealer is that could supply a spare part. If you state the model number ( I don't have access to part numbers at present) I could inform you how much it would be from the company where I work.

Can I ger instrctions on how to put a blade on my electric clippers?

Most common problem is the mounting tongue snapping shut leaving you nothing to mount the blade on. If the tongue is not sticking out so you can put the blade mounting into it then stick a screwdriver behind it and make it come open. The tongue is a flat piece of metal at the front with 2 lines pressed into it. When it is hanging out pop the blade onto it, turn the motor on and snap the blade shut forcefully.

Staple jams by driver blade in gun and I have to dismantle nose to get it out. Empire Rainco 7-16.

The problem is wear on the sides of the driver blade. With the constant up/down movement of the driver against either side of the nose plate, it eventually narrows enough to allow part of the fine wire 71 series staple to find it's way between the driver blade and the inside wall of the nose plate. A new driver blade cures this completely. Rainco tackers have become a bit rare but the good news is, they're actually manufactured by Fasco and the Fasco driver fits into the Rainco piston by the removal of a single pin to allow the old blade out, replace with the new Fasco blade, re-insert the pin into the piston, then re-assemble the gun and you're away.

The nail gun is sticking ever shot and will not reset

Driver not returning to top of cylinder is caused by several issues. Bent driver, piston oring, and check valve. Remove head and pull out driver. The blade should be straight with no missing pieces. Driver piston should fit snuggly into cylinder and not drop down cylinder under its own weight. If driver / piston look ok, pull out cylinder and look for check seal in place. It looks like rubber band and fits in groove with row of holes. Parts are available at

The brakes are sticking on the drivers side of my 04 chevy can i unstick the brake?

since your complain is on the driver side sticking brake, so i do not suspect that the failure in on your hydrovac, it could be the that your driver side brake caliper piston needs seal kit replacement thats why when you press the brake and when you depress it the piston doesnt retracts. you need to remove the driver side wheel and remove the brake caliper assembly, take off the brake pads, press the brake till the piston comes out, inspect the piston condition and change it if damage along with the seal kit. make sure to bleed the brake before driving the car to release presence of air in your brake system.

Will the paslode 900420 discharge two nails at the same time.

Stick with the paslode brands nails... the money you save using other brands is off-set by higher maintenance costs and tool down-time

The pin that fires the nail sticks and won't retract after firing. You can push it back in after it fires, but that is very time consuming. tried cleaning and oiling to no avail.

please go to and take a look at the gun's schematic. you have one of two possible problems. check the compression on the pin's piston( it should have 2 metal rings) put the piston at the top of the chamber and let it go , if it drops by itself you may need new metal rings. the other fix is to replace your reed valve( it kinda looks like a comb with four fat teeth) sitting right under your muffler

Piston will not retract fully once fired

sounds like the tool needs to be cleaned and serviced or the driver is bent, if you don;t have the owners manual to clean this tool, go to and type in your model number for a detailed instruction on the cleaning of the tool.

Paslode nail gun not firing

Yes you need to oil driver blade piston.
You need to check for spark. With no nail or gas in it. Take of main cylinder(4bolts on top, 2 bolts on nose. And then put in battery. And then push upper switch(behind roller at top) and the fan will come on. And then pull the trigger. You should have spark.
