Hi,
That is actually the nail failing. If you try shooting any 2in. 18ga. nail into something hard like Maple or even red oak, the nail will bend. It will typically follow the grain. So Go to at least a 16 ga. nail for hardwoods.

My brand new DC608 18 gauge nailer jams every time on the 2nd nail.


Per your addendum I would have first told you to check that you are using the proper guage nails. Second you should make sure you are loading the nails in the lowest channel in the magazine so they are at the bottom of the magazine. If you load them into the top of the magazine they have more time to go off course before they get into the wood.

How do you determine what to set the psi for door trim and baseboards?


Your compressor has an air preasure ajustment , that will allow your to set where you will be comfortable. Turn it till you get the setting for your particular job. Use a piece of scrap wood to check nail set. I hope that I have been of service. GOOD LUCK.

Does the campbell hausfeld model sb504000 2 inch nailer/stapler need an external air to get started?


Sb504000 works just fine with pressure range from 60 to 120 psi depending on material. Any small compressor will work great. Using the gun at max pressure will shorten the life of the gun. Best practice is to set pressure to just under 100psi for most work and increase pressure when nailing hard wood. Using at max pressure will strain the driver and the lower part of gun (screws that hold nose to body). Some hard woods will bend an 18 gauge nail. Good luck with your gun and have fun with your projects.

I have difficulty with regular jams regardless of brad length. Thoughts?


Depending on type of work/wood the finer the nail, results in increased jams. Eighteen gauge and finer experience more jams than say 15 gauge. Fine gauge nails also suffer from square cut tip. I believe that if the nails were pointed (like Senco nails ) they would more likely drive true. Jaming can be decreased by selecting the correct nailer for particular work. Dimentional lumber and hardwoods tend to increase problems compared to quality plywood or non wood trim materials. If you experience jaming with any type of wood then time to look at driver for possible problem. Check driver for bent or worn tip. Driver blade can be dressed square on grinder. Some drivers have a slight angle/taper ground into tip on the side that faces the rails. This taper continues up the blade about 1/2 inch. The taper will prevent the driver from hitting the second nail. On really hard woods, try drilling a fine pilot hole to produce best results. Good luck

Check the position of the switches and selectors. It sounds like you are in between settings. Also, put in a few drops of oil, and try your gun out on scrap wood, so oil doesn't come out on your good work.

I ran into this problem many times. Don`t use the Bostitch brand nails. Use the generic or other name brand. You`ll notice the generic one`s heads are just a little bigger and the driver blade won`t run down the side of the nail!

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
