SOURCE: The nails aren't going in far enough using a air cleat nailer

I just finished 800 square feet of oak flooring with this nailer. You might have to increase the psi at the gun and make sure it gets a good square firm hit to set the nail. You can swing and hit the thing pretty hard, I hit it hard to set warped boards in place. I used 120 psi for best results, I tried 90 psi but had more misfires. The nail head only needs to set in far enough so the head is touching the tongue and so the next board will fit. The nail won't be buried into the tongue like you might think. If the occasional nail protrudes from the board you can use a nail set to drive the nail the rest of the way in, but I found that most of the nails didn't want to set by hand. I either clipped off the head with side cutters and folded over the remaining tab or did my best to set the nail if it wasn't long enough to clip. If it bends over really ugly, just carve a little wood from the groove lands on the next board to clear the nail stub. Removing the nails is difficult, it's best to let them be rather than risk damaging the flooring. Also, don't let the gun get down to the last nail. Sometimes if you try to fire the last nail on a strip it will twist and damage the flooring. Always keep a few nails in the gun just to be safe. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 5/8 flooring nailer

TJ
The flooring is it engineered or solid? Specific engineered can be nailed with this gun. Using hte white plate that came in the bag, Its a thicker plate than the gun, and a BOSTITCH 108771, metal shim that installs inside the gun. This will allow 5/8" thick, Owens, Aswaha bay, etc 5/8" thick, with a heavy wearlayer to be installed with this nailer. Any thinner wear layer will become a problem

SOURCE: Nailer piston won't retract far enough

the rubber cap just pulls off. maybe a screw driver to pry it first but it does just pop off.

As for oil, Always use what the manufacture recommends. But in the case you can figure that out, use a low viscos oil, maybe a standard 3-1 will do in most cases.

Also WD-40 works well.

SOURCE: central pneumatic nail gun parts where?

You will have to call Harbor Freight at 800-444-3353. Make sure you have the item number of your nailer. Sometimes you can pull up a breakdown online if you search your item number of harbor freights website. Most of the time you cannot. Also be aware that it takes sometimes 6 weeks to get your parts. The parts aren't expensive but it takes forever to get them. Every once in a while you will get the parts in a week or two. Good luck.

PORTOMATIC NAILER . WILL NOT COUNTERSINK NAILS PSI 100


On many floor nailers, counter sink is controlled by the thickness of lower pad. Your nailer most likely uses several different thickness of pads bolted to the bottom surface of the gun (usually white vinyl /plastic). The thinner the pad, the deeper the nail will set. Good luck.

I have a dewalt framing nailer that will operate with a max pressure of 120psi. I have been using it for 2 weeks with 100psi. Now the piston will not return after shooting the first nail, unless I adjust...


Your gun should work in the 90-120 psi range to get a consistant drive depth and with a few drops, 5-6 or a small squirt, of oil at the start of work and a few more in the afternoon if you are using it a lot. It is possible to use too much oil, if you over oil it and the bottom of the cylinder chamber gets full of oil or other gunk attracted to the oil it can get high enough to interfear with the return function. Also if you are using something other than pneumatic nail gun oil it is possible some o-rings were damaged. Either way you have to remove the head cap and check the internal o-rings for damage and clean out anything in the cylinder and head chamber.

Did you rebuild the tool? If not remove all the nails and unplug air, BUMP nose on piece of wood and does driver fall down? If so the pistion o ring needs to be replaced. Also if this is not the case look for a jammed nail in the magazine/nose area. Next check for a bent driver blade. All the above could cause your problem

Not sinking the flooring nail down far enough


The pressure from your compressor needs to be 100psi at least. If you have a small compressor it may not be maintaining that pressure between cutting-out and cutting-in. Also you need to give the plunger on the top of the gun a fairly solid hit with the mallot. If you are fixing into old hardwood you could try a little bit of lubrication on the tips of your staples, candle wax may even help and is not to messy.
Good luck

Nail is jammed in my porter cable fcn200 cleat nailer --how do I get it out?


Hi,

It looks like those guns have a problem with driving the last few nails... so don't let them go all the way down before refilling...

There also should be a tool included to relase the nose so the jamm can be cleared...

Checkout the reviews here there is a ton of helpful info there...

Adjusting airpresure


There is nothing on a nailer to adjust the air pressure. You have to do it at the pressure regulator. It is feasable to mount a regulator at the gun but more likely it's on the compressor. Most nail guns are rated for 90 to 120 psi. Set your regulator to hold the hose pressure between 90 and 100 psi. Using higher pressure to set the nail will ruin your nailer. Use the depth adjustment on the gun to set how far the nail is driven.

I am using a Bostitch MFN200 Manual Flooring Nailer and we are having some trouble with it. The cleats go almost all the way into the floor board but are still sticking up about an inch out of the board....


2 things come to mind. I've installed Wood Floors for the last 5 years.

Make sure you have enough Air pressure running to the stapler,
and Second, Whack the hell out of it. You can be rough with it. Their designed to take a beating

When u hit it with the mallet, youre opening a valve which shoots the piston and drives the staple into the boards. hit it not hard enough, not enough air is being sent to the piston to drive it fully.
