Use the allen wrench that came with the disposer or get a new one that will fit in the center hole on the bottom of the disposer. Using that tool you turn it back and forth until the nail loosens enough to remove it.

SOURCE: Metal nail fell into the garbage disposal.

Just above the motor par of your incinerator there should be 3 or 4 small bolts or srews that holds the main motor onto the waste chute TURN OFF THE POWER. Remove these bolts to seperate the motor and you should be able to remove the nail. Please, please make sure the power is off.

New Hitachi NR83A2 with jambed nails.


Removing jambed driver can be very difficult. I use an old hitachi driver with some metal removed at the tip to drive in the jambed piston. I grind the used driver slighty to allow for the jammed nails to pass the driver i am using for ram otherwise the old driver will jam up also. To protect head and cylinder from damage I remove them and set to side. Place body of gun on soft wood and hammer old driver blade with heavy copper or brass hammer. Good luck

Can i use full round head 3-1/2 passlode nail in this nailer


The FC350A uses a 30- to 34-degree collated clipped head nail which is very similar to the Paslode 34-degree round head nail. Paslode's nails are unique because the round head nails collated very close together and the head of the nail is offset to the shaft unlike Porter Cable full round head are further apart and the head is centered on the nail. What does all this mean? The Paslode round head nail may work however the driver will deliver the blow off center to the shaft of the nail, This could cause the nail to bend as it enters hard wood and possibly jamb the gun. You should be able to exchange the nails (with small restock fee) at a major fastener store (not Lowes or etc. ) with out having purchased them at location because the Paslode nails are very popular and with todays economy the store will gain a new customer. If however you would like to try using the nails, try the following. Remove the head of the gun to expose the driver. Install the nails as usual and with **** of small hammer quickly and firmly push driver all the way down the cylinder to see if nail is easily pushed out of bottom of nose. (You can push driver back up with long thin screwdriver or allen) If successful, replace head and connect to air however lower pressure to 40-50 psi and nail into soft wood increassing the pressure little at a time with each test untill full pressure around 90-100psi. Good luck

Nail gun does not shoot nail


Hi
The piston is either jambed or bent . Remove the head assembly with a couple of allen screws (i believe they are allen) clean all parts thoroughly and oil. Reassemble and you should be good as new . If bent replace piston.
I hope this helped

Nailgun does not work, air is


Check to see if a nail is jambed part way in the chamber outlet, make sure to take air hose off before checking. You also may want to add some air gun oil to the inlet if you havnt done it in a while

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!?

Campbell Hausfeld NS2190MVRB 21 Degree Round Head Framing Nailer is jammed. How do I clear it?


Remove any nails in the magazine, and you can carefully take a pin pinch of a size that fits into the nose (where the nails come out). Try to carefully tap the driver back into the gun.This will sometimes clear the jambed nail. If the driver is severely jambed you will have to dismantle the entire unit to separate the driver from the nose of the nailer.
