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: Porter Cable 2 inch brad nailer piston does not return

Hi,
Sounds like the cylinder check seal. That`s the o`ring on the outside of the cylinder sleeve. With little holes in the groove. You have to remove cylinder sleeve to get to it.
Thanks,
Jeff

SOURCE: nail gun wont fire

First - the air pressure has to be high enough - check the regulator on the tank to make sure it is delivering in excess of 60-70 psi (which I am sure you have already done).

If you have dry fired these guns (i.e. shot them off with no nails in them while you were lubricating them maybe) the mechanism inside could be damaged. I had that happen to one of my nailers (same brand). That was when I learned not to dry fire them...

Since both of them are not working though I would be more inclined to look at the air supply first.

Are you using 18 gauge or 16 gauge nails?

BOSTITCH 1664FN 16 Gauge is spitting out 2 nails, stuck together, at once. I cleared a Jam by opening the nose door. I thought there was a piece of metal strip in there. Now it's not there. Is this...


There is not enough room in the nose of the gun for two 16 gauge nails. Most likely 18 gauge nails are the problem (thinner). If nails are correct, tip of driver must be damaged allowing the driver to hit part of the next nail. The driver should be slightly tapered on the side that faces the rails so that the driver will hit first nail head and gently shove the rest of the nails back into the rails out of the way. I dont believe that you have any missing pieces. If nails are correct, remove head and pull out the driver and check for damage. Hold the tip of the driver against nail head, should be slightly thinner than head of nail.If the driver is not tapered slightly on the side that faces the nails, maybe you should sand it a little so the driver will not hit the second nail. Goodluck

It wont shoot nails. It releases air by the trigger but no nails come out. Please help I am in the middle of a job. Emergency.


It may already have a nail jammed in it. You may have to take off the front face that holds the firing pin. There should be one or two screws in front just above where the nails come out. If you remove these there will be a plate that comes off and then you can remove a jammed nail. Look first to see if there is a jam before doing this. Also maybe you have the wrong guage nails or maybe you don't have proper air pressure. Hope this helps.

BOSTITCH T31-1 stapler & T31-2 STAPLER and NAILER. Both use 18 gauge (very fine gauge wire). Try using 18 gauge Bostitch staples (used in BT model bostitch staplers). Good Luck

When i put the battery in the light comes. on but when i push the nose down the light just flashes. checked to see if a nail was jambed i cant see any thing wrong can anyone help?


Four flashes is a low battery, multiple flashes indicates a jam.

It may be hard to see - or the driver is stuck. Remove all nails and check again - see silver? It's either the driver (push it back up) or a nail (remove it with pliers.)

Dewalt cordless nail gun fires but doesn't seem to feed the nails very well, alot of misfires.


Try another brand of nails -- maybe your gun doesn't like those. Also, blow any dirt out of the nail magazine.

I have paslode finishing nail gun , i cleaned it, not working now


The smoking is normal for a few times after cleaning ,but you might have put to much oil drops in chamber and piston chamber is getting a "vapor lock". Try recleaning with degreaser. Also have you forgotten to set the depth gauge at front of nose.

Please Rate jj505 Thanks
