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: Once trigger is depressed, air leaks and no nail is fired....

Sounds like the trigger o-ring is damaged, either because of not being oiled frequently, or the pneumatic tool has not been used for a while. O-rings will harden up if not used. Look for a place that sells fasteners, or nails and see if they can put a new o-ring in the trigger asm. for you. If you take the gun to a place where you purchase your nails, they should repair for little or no cost. it is an easy repair if you have the tools, parts, etc.

SOURCE: brad nailer not firing nail...can hear brief air noise upon pulling the trigger

Porter cable makes a number of brad nailers (18 gauge) that very quickly suffer from the problem that you are having. You did not mention the model number of your gun but if it is one of these, (bn125a, bn200a, ns100a) kit # 60061 will fix the problem. It costs between 25 and 30 dollars. Google that part number or order from www.dewalt.com. Dewalt owns the porter cable brand. Before you order the kit, check that the driver blade is not bent and stuck. The driver should travel freely down the cylinder. When you install parts, use Danco silicone grease to lube (availabel at Lowes in the plumbing department) If your model # is different from those mentioned above, please email me and I will recommend a repair.

SOURCE: DeWalt d51822 framing nailer, shoots 2 nails at once 1 in 5 times

I worked at at tool rental center while attending college and learned from the old tool masters about nails and nailers. Rental stores have many different brands of nailers to rent and customers would bring their own nails of all brands. You will notice on the case/box that your nails will /should work on many other brands however the degree or angle of the nails is not always exacly as stated on the box. You should check with protractor the exact angle of your nails and also check the exact angle of the nailer. Use straight edge on travel path of the piston and another on guide rails to check angle of the gun. You will discover that all is not as stated as in a perfect world. If the angle is off slightly, the head of the second nail will get into the path of the driver. This happens mostly with clip head because the nail heads are so close together. The full round head is spaced further apart with less jamming. If angle is off slightly, take a look at other brands of nails with protractor in hand, the angle will be different slightly or choose a slightly thicker nail. Look for the nails to fit with bottom of nail hitting the barrel first. This will move the head of the nail slightly away from the center line. Finally do not release pusher with force as this will jamb nails closer together. Good Luck!?

GUN FIRES BUT NAIL DOESN'T COME OUT


I am assuming the driver travels down but misses the nail, if so the end of the driver pin may be worn, a quick fix is to touch the end of the driver on a grinding wheel to reface it, ensure you remove the least amount of material possible to maintain the driver length, if this doesn't fix the problem you may need to replace the front plate

Rtm model 9034 framing manual nailer


Hi, If the tool doesn't have a depth of drive control (Found either by the trigger or, on the safety element) you can get around this by adjusting the air pressure from the compressor. Just make sure that you have plenty of scrap timber to experiment as, when the adjustment has been made, the line pressure is still as it was. Firing a nail to cycle the tool once will allow the new pressure to be the norm. (If this makes sense?)

Fires 2 nails back to back


Hi Ray,
2 Quick questions.

1. When you say that the nails are firing in pairs, are you "Bump Firing" the tool? (That's to say you hold the trigger down and then bump the tool onto the timber)

2. Is this a method that you're well used to doing?

Porter Cable FN250c wont shoot with every trigger pull. sometimes it shoots correctly (10% of the time), other times it just pops (no nail) and other times it shoots two nails at once. Also when it...


Worn trigger and or worn firing valve. Remove the trigger and look for wear on contact surfaces (worn pin that holds trigger, worn inner lever inside trigger, worn or loose firing pin in valve ). Easy test for worn trigger. Remove the nails, remove trigger, fire the gun against wood with finger to test for proper action. If it works better without trigger, consider replacing trigger with new (I would also order the oring repair kit that includes the firing valve )

Gun fires mor than one nail at a time porter cable model da 250a 15 ga. finish nailer


There are two issues that people have with nailers that sound the same however are totally different. Firing more that one nail at a time can be taken as; two nails being driven with one fire or the nailer vary rapidly firing a second time almost instantly after firing the first nail and each time only drive one nail. Problem of double fire (either type) is very common with nailers (the gun very quickly fires twice), however two nails at once can only happen if the wrong gauge nails are used in the gun. A 15 g nailer can very easily pass two 18 g nails or, with more difficulty, pass two 16g nails. To help prevent the driver blade from hitting two nail heads at once, most drivers are slightly tapered at the tip so that the driver will hit the first nail and the tapered part will push the other nails back into the rails slightly. Remove the head of the nailer and pull out the driver. Measure or compare the thickness of the driver to the thickness of the nail head. If you are sure that you are using 15 gauge nails, check the driver for taper. The tapered part should face the rails. If not tapered, try carefully grinding a taper keeping the tip cool so that you do not effect the hardness. You could also check for other brands of 15 g nails with slightly more spacing between the nails. There is a big difference in quality among brands of nails. Good luck with your repair

My N88rh shoots two nails at a time


N88rh uses a full round head plastic collated nails which are spaced apart enough that the driver cannot hit two nails at once. If your are using other nails that fit into your magazine that are closer together you may in fact drive two nails at once. If, however you are using the correct nail and the nailer shoots twice, then you probable have a very sensitive firing valve. You could change the TVA6 valve or change the actual trigger. To overcome this problem of double firing and you do not want to try changing the firing valve, you need to change the trigger to sequential type instead of bump fire type. This trigger is usually white and will only permit one nail to be fired. Check www.toolpartsdirect.com or bostitch.com for parts. Good holiday

Fires 2 & 3 nails every so often.


Most all nail guns can be converted to single fire, however, usually parts must be changed. Some brands have two positions on the trigger, others have a button position near the trigger to accomplish same. Check with dealer or email your gun model # and I will explain your to fix. For now you can replace the spring on the safety with one slightly stiffer. Also try nailing with trigger depressed and quickly bump the gun to fire, this method usually works better than placing the gun in position then firing. Good luck with your repair.
