SOURCE: Bostitch nail gun loss of pressure, won't fire nail

Hello. I can help you. The nail gun you have uses 18 gauge brads. I would use only original Bostitch 18 gauge.

The one MM of difference you mention is the reason why you do not have the pressure you did have. Get rid of those 31MM brads and get the 18 gauge. Home Depot carries the Bostitch line. I would go there or to homedepot.com

SOURCE: Air constantly leaking out around the trigger

My 18 gauge Bostich brad nailer would not fire, and air came out around the trigger. Even though the gun is advertised as oil less - this is what remedied my problem - a drop of oil. I put one drop of oil in the slot where the brads come out [realizing that is where the driver is located] and left the gun upright for some time. The next time I used the gun it worked just fine. A drop of oil can also be added into the gun where the air hose is hooked up. Do not over-do the oil process, but don't ignore it.

I have propulse 2 inch Brad Nailer. Model 57265001. when i press switch just air blow out but no nail or nailing


1. Does it have any nails in it? A) add nails
2. Often when you get down to the last few nails it will quit working. A) add more nails, you may have to discard the remaining nail or three before adding more nails.
3. You may have reached the end of a group of nails and the last nail or 2 are jamed up in the end of the nailer. A) Need to open end of nailer and remove jamed nails. Don't forget to disconnect nailer from compressor first.
4. Other options are not enough air pressure, or the gun is damaged and needs repaired or replaced.
Good luck.

Will only shoot one nail then I have to wait 10-15 seconds for it to reset. How can I fix it?


You may have an air supply problem. There needs to be an air regulator on the compressor so you can set the required air pressure for your nailer and project. You also need to verify the CMF output on your compressor is what your nailer calls for. If your compressor isn't large enough for the nailer, it will shoot one or two nails, the wait for pressure to build up . It will need to be high enough to operate per nailer requirements.

Miss fires and wont sink nails depth set deep and pressure over 120 psi


If no air is leaking from gun, miss-fire is usually caused by worn or too tight piston oring or lack of lubrication. Easy test. Disconnect airline, remove nails, point nose of gun up then down. Driver should stay in uppermost position. If driver moves up then down within gun replace piston oring and retest. Set pressure to about 100psi. Good luck with repair.

Leaves about a 1/4" of nail from seating


This can happen for a number of reasons.

1) Insufficient air pressure (should be set to around 100PSI)

2) Hitting another nail or other extremely hard surface (old roofs are known for this)

3) Defect in the gun or lack of lubrication.

Since this is a reconditioned unit, I think that the gun is probably fine. Verify that the compressor has the correct pressure and that the hose is large enough in diameter to deliver sufficient air to the gun. Check the CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute) rating of the compressor/tank combo against the requirements of the gun.

Keep us posted,

Hello My PC 18ga brad nailer its piston wont retr...


Check the regulator gauge on your air compressor to make sure you have enough air pressure going to your nailer. After replacing my nailer because the driver wouldn't retract, I discovered, when the replacement nailer had the same problem, that I had somehow turned the regulator and decreased the pressure. Now I have two fully operational nailers.

The nail does not go deep enough in the wood


Check to see what the regulater on your air compressor is set to as typiccaly they are set for around 50 pounds of pressure which is not enough to drive a nail all the way in wood, if it is set to low turn the adjustment up to at least 100psi and then try that if that does not work then somewhere in the air supply entering the driver there is a partial plug and this will need to be found and corrected. Hope This Helps Don

Nail gun not firing nail


THe most likely causes of this are not enough air pressure (90 psi) or a nail is jammed in the front, causing the striker to stick down. Also, if it hasn't been oiled in a long time, that could cause it.

Paslode air framer not sinking some nails


Your air pressure is dropping everytime you fire. It sound like your compressor is not cutting back in untill it to low. Not giving your tool enough continuess pressure. Your compressor cut in pressure should be around 90-100psi no less. and your max. pressure no more then 120psi. (Make sure your regulator is set at 110psi)
good luck...!

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.
