SOURCE: what brands of nails will work in my 15ga finish nailer 1000993

Here are a few tips on buying nails for your nailer. Nails are sold in two basic categories, clip head and full round head. The clip head are lower in price and are usually taped on glued together with no spacing between them. The full round head have spacing between each nail and are held together with plastic. Some nailguns can use both types. It is important to verify the angle of your gun. To measure the exact angle use a straitedge along length of rails and a protractor at the barrel of the gun. Place the protractor on the barrel with the 90 and 0 degrees aligned with the barrel and hold the straitedge aligned with the rails and the 0 degree mark. Read the angle. You may find that your gun measures a different angle. Nails are sold from 0 to 34 degree. 34 degree is usually clip head for Paslode, Senco, Hitachi and other brands. I find that many brands of nails do not list the angle, but list the name of the gun instead. This makes it difficult for non-branded guns. Take the protractor into the store and measure the angle of the nails or place the nails on the outside of the rails to see if they align with the barrel. Shop several stores because nails vary by brand. Once you verify the perfect fit, ask for a sample strip to try in your gun. When you identify the angle and type, use this information to shop for price. Most nails are imported from around the world, however there are nails still produced in the US costing more. Home Depot and Lowes do not carry a full range of nails.
=Google the internet for more info on nails such as www.nailzone.com. They sell a 33 degree nail that may fit your gun. Good luck and email me or post again with more 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

Your nailer uses a very common and lowest price nail when using bright nails. Other varieties are expensive, stainless, twisted, galvanized, so if you are a big user not a problem. I on the other-hand do not use very many nails in a years time. A case of nails will last couple of years. A box of stainless or galvanized will be an expensive proposition. Because of the weight of case of nails, shipping is very expensive unless you find speicals. At www.toolbarn.com , you will get free shipping for orders of $200 (less than 70lbs). Best bet is to find local dealers, and right now because of the economy, special pricing. Look for deals on broken cases of nails. I usually find broken/open cases of nails at Lowes for half price. Buy what ever you come accross that is a good price because nails have a long shelf life if you can keep them dry. Good holiday

I would check the tension on the spring that pulls the nails into position. Make sure that when the rack of nails is out, that the loading mechanism is reaching the top of the gun. I would also recommend that you oil the gun prior to each use. If you are using it regularly through outt the day, then I would definitely recommend oiling it through out the day.

Can My FC 350 A used 28 degree nails


The manual for your gun specifies 34-degree nails from 2 to 3 1/2 inches long. 28-degree, wire collated nails are a Stanley-Bostitch thing and they only work in their nail guns, they will not work in your nail gun. You need 34-degree, paper-tape collated nails. I know Senco framing nails will work in your gun and I think Duo-fast makes 34-drgree nails but check that before buying them.

Can you use regular round head nails in the cliped nail version ?.


Your gun uses 30 -34 degree clip head paper tape. Order a sample of the nail below. It may work on your gun. These are offset full round head with paper tape. Safe way to test if nails will work is to remove the head of the gun and insert nails into rails. Push down on the driver with wood handle of hammer to eject nail. This will test for jamming or two nails trying to eject and cause jam. Look down barrel to see if the head is alighed correctly or too far from centerline of driver.

Bought hitachi nr90ad nail gun and it isn't firing right..what exact size nails should i get ( as in 35,33,or 30 degree nails)


Use 34 degree, paper collated, clipped head nails. They were always the most common strip nails years ago as Senco, Paslode, and a number of other nailers used them.

I have seen many nails that supposedly fit the senco sn4 nail gun. Some are 31 degree, some are 33 degree. All have paper collating. What angle nails should I search for to fit the senco sn4?


Senco uses 33 degree paper tape clip head, however many generic brands will label their box 30-34 degree to fit several nailers. This practice causes jams in some guns and others work fine. The goal is to save money but could cost more in the long run if gun is damaged. You can use generic (other than 33) if you take a strip of nails and place them against the outside of the rails aligned with either the line of driver path of angle of the rails. This will give you a visual as to the alignment. Best result is when the complete nail is in line with the path of driver. Next best result is when the head is in the path of driver and point of nail is slightly away from path, worst is when point hits path and head is back. Good luck

Two nails at a time and one of them only goes in one quarter of an inch.


Campbell hausfeld makes a 21 and 34 degree angle nail gun. The most common mistake is the wrong nails are being used. Some after market nails will not work correctly in some guns. Check to see if the gun accepts wire welded or paper clip nails. Check the angle required. Also be sure the gun is oiled if it is not an oil- less gun. hope this helps.

What is the angle of the nail we use with this nailer


if thats a hitachi nr90ad, then you should be using 30 degree paper taped clipped headed nails,, never use plastic or wire collated nails in that gun,, some boxes might say 30 up to 34 degree and thats fine, also in a lot of areas clipped headed nails are no longer code, so they made the nails full headed, the head is just off set,,
