No brad I have the same problem. There are brads in the nailer, but when I depress the safety against the wood and pull the trigger air comes out and a hole is in the wood, but no brad. Help?

You could have a brad jammed in the nailer--that's exactly what mine was doing. I had to remove the front plate (there are three torx screws) to see the brad that was stuck. Once I got it out and re-assembled it, it worked fine.

Your anvil is not returning to the home position to allow the brad to index into the receiver. Try and push the anvil up all the way to the home position. If that works, then you need lubrication, new return spring, etc. All related to the anvil firing.

Air leaking from trigger Bostitch SB1850BN


Most likely the orings or seals in the headvalve are not making perfect seal. Remove the head and pull out the headvalve. Apply plenty of white grease to orings and test again. If the gun fires, then will need oring kit soon, or just keep using plenty of grease. If the gun still does not fire, check that the safety foot is depressing the trigger valve all the way in. Good luck

Nailer is shooting air out of trigger, is not releasing brad


Sounds like the head valve. Remove the head cap take out the head valve, clean, re-fit and give it a few drops of air line oil. Then give it a try. Good luck.

NEW BRAD NAILER ONCE LOADED WILL NOT WORK


Many modern brad and finish nails use a sequential fire trigger system. You have to push the nose of the tool down to depress the safety THEN pull the trigger. This is the opposite of how a bottom fire works where you hold the trigger and bump the nose to fire the gun.

My braid nailer will not fire. I can hear air when I pull trigger but it will not fire, almost like it has a brad jamed in it but do not see one?


Most likely stuck driver or headvalve. Easy fix. Remove the head, pull out the driver and check for bent shaft, if ok, lube and reinstall. Next remove the valve within the head, lube and reinstall. Replace parts as meeded. Retest. If it still does not fire, could be that the safety foot is not pushing the firing pin all the way up into the valve. Easy to check. Remove the nails, remove the trigger to expose the firing valve pin. Dry fire the gun by quickly depressing the valve pin with finger. If it fires, adjust safety foot as needed.

My Stanley Bostitch SB-1850BN brad nailer will not sink the brad. It leaves it about an eighth of an inch above the surface. Adjusting the head using the adjustment thumbwheel does not help. Any...


You may have a broken tip or bent driver. Remove tha nails from gun and dry fire into a piece of wood. You should see a nice little indention. If you continue to hold the trigger and the nailer against wood after firing, the driver will stay in the lower position for examination. Just fire into wood and keep gun against wood while holding trigger and lean gun to side untill you see the tip. If you see broken tip or no tip order repair kit that includes driver, or driver alone from www.bostitch.com or ebay. Good luck

Porter cable brad nailer only fires brad on second trigger pull


The dent in the wood is not caused by the air. It's caused by the set that drives the brad. Are you oiling it consistenly? Are the brads the right manufacturer for your porter cable brad nailer? From the information you give it appears that the brads are not advancing correctly or that the air pressure is not sufficient to dislodge the brad from the brad strip on the first strike - it takes an additional strike to break it free. The standard for adding oil is to add ten drops of air tool oil for every hour of operation. That seems like a lot, but the correct amount of oil is a sure way to prevent most air tool problems.

Nail Gun Problem


Professional-grade varieties are automatic, and fire a nail directly upon pulling the trigger. A semi-automatic nail gun is more appropriate for beginners, since it requires a two step process: pull the trigger and then tap the barrel against the wood. This safety feature protects the user from accidentally firing a nail gun and injuring himself or others.
