Why are the nails hitting on the finished part of the wood, not on the tongue?

The nailer has the proper foot and shim installed.

The only causes I can think of for this would be:
1) The tool not being placed properly on the wood
2) The wrong depth shim on the foot
3) A broken nose assembly

Why doesn't the trigger do anything on my NS289000 framing nailer?

Nailer not firing is caused by lack of lubrication in the headvalve (lube with white grease) or driver stuck/bent (make sure driver moves freely) or safety foot not depressing the firing pin on the trigger valve all the way in. Easy to check. Remove the trigger to expose the firing pin. With no nails in gun, connect air and depress the firing pin with finger all the way in. If the gun fires, adjust the safety foot. If the gun does not fire, lube headvalve and check driver piston stuck. Good luck

I would loike to remove my bottom nailinf fin on my pella replacment window

should not be a huge issue to trim off the bottom nailer... trim off with a razor knife being careful not to penetrate the frame. the primary concern is providing support to the frame. Using mortar and wood shims, layer mortar where the window will sit and level it using the wood shims, leaving space to remove the shims after the mortar sets... I'd recommend using screws to afix the remaining fins to the studs to lessen the loss of mortar from shifting the window during install

My gun was new in 2012 can I adjust the safey or remove it

Hitachi sells an adjustable foot attachment that makes it easy to adjust for using your framing gun to install siding or other use where you want more control of how deep the nail sets. Do not remove the safety. Contact hitachi dealer for the accessory. Good luck

Nailer drives nails too deep

n80 coil nailer is a very powerful nailer used for hard wood. If the driver is setting nails too deep, adjust safety foot to the lowest level. Install safety foot no-mar boot to lift the gun even higher. If still too deep, most likely the lower bumper inside the gun is worn-out or cracked. Easy test. Remove nails and connect air supply. With trigger depressed, push and hold the gun against work (I use an old rubber hose tightly coiled up). This will fire the gun but keep the driver down allowing you to examine the tip of the driver. The driver should extend out past the nose less than quarter inch. If the driver is extending too far, most likely bumper is worn out. If a large quantity of air is leaking out the nose of gun during the test, indication that lower bumper is cracked. Good luck.

Replace the rear brake pads and rotors. what are

they are to stop the vibration from the rotor to the pads to the foot pedal.
not so much of a shim as a vibration damper. most have a sticky side on them so check for it first before installing.

The staples are not going deep enough into our hardwood. We tried a different nailer as well, and the cleats wouldn't work either. Tried both 1 1/2" and 2" staples and cleats. We're installing 3/4 inch oak...

The working pressure of this tool is 85 - 90 PSI max. Do not over power it or you risk O-ring breakage. These guns are adjustable for floor thickness. The adjustment is simply by adding and removing shims on the floor contact part of the tool. For 3/4" the pad should be 5/16" thick without shims

My starter is grinding in my 85 bronco just put it in

There are several transmissions available for this truck, and you often have to add or remove shims for proper starter gear engagement in the flywheel/flexplate.

Did you check the for proper engagement when installing the new starter?

Paslode works intermittently

I had a similar problem with my impulse framer. The solution was to adjust the battery contacts within the gun. The contacts were not making good connection with the battery. I also adjusted the safety foot out to max so that the trigger mech. could function more reliably. Other problems I have had with this gun were related to the proper seating of the fuel cylinder and condition of the battery. My battery would no longer hold a proper charge causing the red light error.
