Question about Air Tools & Compressors

3 Answers

In April 2009 stpk1612 wrote to you with the following problem: "I had a single nail stuck in track so I had to partially disassemble gun. As I was doing this, the lockout bar follower and a small spring fell out. "After looking at paslode schematic (part is #40 on chart), the part seems to be floating in the air and I have not figured out how to assemble gun with this part in place. Any help would be appreciated and a picture of assembled gun would be great." You replied with the following: "Be sure to remove the metal nose piece that covers the lockout bar when assembled. It may be stuck to the other half of the gun. Replace the bar and the spring and put the metal nose piece in its position over the lockout bar. At this point the metal nose piece will be on the opposite side. This will allow you to replace the 2 halves carefully so as not to loose the spring." My problem is very much the same, I took the nailer apart because it wouldn't fire. But, I'm sure I can't be as smart as stpk1612, since I have not been able to follow your instructions. I haven't got a clue where this piece goes. And since I have no idea where the piece came loose from I have no idea what the metal nose piece is, and there isn't one described in the schematic. What does it mean "at this point the metal nose piece will be on the opposite side". Opposite side of what? A picture or better yet, a drawing would help since I am having such a problem with my illiteracy. Please help. Thanks. Dave

    The nailer model is Paslode IMCT 900420.

    I already have the diagram but it only shows the parts floating in mid air, it doesn't show where they go. That's the same problem the other guy had too.

    I need help to reassemble my Paslode but it seems that no one out there either really knows the answer, or they cannot describe it simply. Pictures or good line drawings would be the ideal.
    Thanks for those who have tried to help.

    I did check the second link and the drawings are really good, but I don't see the lockout bar anywhere in those drawings as I think it comes from inside the other part of the gun assembly.
    Thanks.

    Rowdy, you're "the man". Once I laid that side down and looked it over I realized that I may have screwed the metal plate on too soon that I took off from there. It was as soon as I unscrewed it that I found the places for the spring and lockout bar. Now, if I can just remember where all the rest goes! Thanks Rowdy and the others that tried to help.

OK you have a basic concept of what they are talking about. The lockout bar and spring are on the side with the open slot for the nails. When I repair these and I am factory trained I lay the cover down and position the spring in the slot and lay the lockout bar on top, you should see a channel for the spring and bar , you might have to remove the plate for the nails and position it under that. then if you have the one piece assembly I would place it on top and snug the screws in place. You will have to pull back on the know to load the nails for it to seat properly, put everything else back in place and put the 2 handle halves together and again pull on the know so everything fits together. I take it you have went to the Paslode website for a schematic on this tool, if not let me know and I will see what I can do.

My Pro 8000 stapler has about 20 staples jamed I need to how to unjam thew booklet does not show this


Clearing the Nail and
Staple Chamber
If, while using your Cobra

staple
and nail gun, it becomes necessary to
clear a jam from the staple chamber or
track, follow these instructions:

With the bottom of the gun
facing away from your face and
body, open the staple chamber by
squeezing and pulling the plastic
track release straight down away
from the base of the gun and
sliding the track back.(Fig 1)
(Note: the jammed staple or nail
may cause the track to be harder
to slide out than usual. Once the
staple or nail has been cleared,
the track will resume its normal,
free operation) Loose staples or
nails will be expelled from the
chamber.

Clear any remaining staples or
nails from the track and chamber

I USED FULL HEAD NAILS BY MISTAKE, NAILER STOPPED FIRING AFTER USING QUITE A FEW NAILS IN IT. WHAT DO I NEED TO DO?


Did you try to disassemble the nose? Sometimes the firing pin gets stuck in the down position. Small bits of metal from the nails may seize it up periodically, especially if it was trying to push out full-head nails.
Make sure the gun is not under pressure, and when you take it apart to inspect it, add oil wherever you can to help get things moving again. Even if a gun is oil-free it's not gonna hurt it.
Hope that helps - I have mainly Bostitch nailers, and similar scenarios have happened to me with a few of my guns.

My new porter cable RN175B nail gun won't discharge a nail


If the trigger is set to single fire, you will need to place the gun against the work then pull trigger as you have done. Try setting the trigger to bump fire and try again. If hear a thump inside the gun, remove the head and check that the head valve in not stuck from lack of lubrication. Easy test, remove the nails, remove trigger pin, remove trigger and manually push trigger firing valve. If the gun fires then suspect faulty trigger or safety arm not lifting enought to activate the trigger valve. Good luck

The nail gun will not shoot


I don't have that same model but my gun started doing something similar a while back. I was able to disassemble the head of the gun and found that the hammer or piston that drives the nail had rounded itself off and wasn't able to make good contact with the nail head. Instead it pushed itself on top of the nail and got wedged. It's nearly impossible to see the stuck nail or dulled piston head without taking it apart. Hopefully this will help.

Nails fail to feed


Without knowing your model number here are some things to check, in order of difficulty:
1. First make sure you're using the proper nails for your gun. If your gun isn't specifically listed on the box of nails as compatable make sure they are seating in your gun properly. Some brands of angled nails are a couple degrees off from others and won't work in competetor's guns.
2. Check the entire feed path of the nails in the magazine all the way up to where the driver catches the next nail. Sometimes dirt builds up in the track or there could be a peice of nail stuck in there preventing the nails from getting under the driver. Also the spring on the feed shoe should have strong pressure on the shoe all the way up to the head and the shoe has to ride freely in the magazine.
3. If the gun is making holes in the wood the driver isn't broke but it must be straight and true and the tip square. If not it will miss or slip off the nail before driving it. The only way to check the driver is to remove the head on the gun and take the driver out. The piston & driver should travel from the top to the bottom of the cylinder without binding anywhere. Correct any problems you find or replace any damaged parts and your gun should work.

Problem: Nail jam due to improper degree of nails Question: How do I take apart the nail gun so as to get the jammed nails out?


Try removing stuck nails without taking apart gun. Remove remaining nails from rails. Use long piece of allen wrench or similar hard steel and grind the end to allow for jamed nail (I use a broken driver blade ground slightly thinner to allow for stuck nail). Use heavy brass or copper hammer to push driver up to top of cylinder. If after a couple of heavy blows the driver does not move, remove the head of the gun and pull out the cylinder and place the body of the gun on plywood. This will protect the head from damage. Good luck

How do I load nails into the 5700


Here is the link but I copied the instructions here too


http://ec1.images-amazon.com/media/i3d/01/A/man-migrate/MANUAL000035709.pdf



Loading Staples or Nails

Make sure there are no staples or nails jammed from previous usage by checking the handle operation.

CAUTION: IF A STAPLE OR NAIL IS JAMMED, POINT THE GUN AWAY FROM

YOURSELF AND OTHERS BEFORE OPENING THE TRACK AS THE JAMMED

STAPLE OR NAIL MAY BE FIRED OUT UPON OPENING

i) Point the bottom of the gun away from you and turn gun sideways.

ii) Turn gun up, grip track release buttons and push away to release, then slide the track out, as shown (fig. 1).

iii) Insert a strip of staples in the chamber with the legs pointing up (fig.1a). If nails are required, turn gun upside

down and tilt the gun away from yourself and load on the right hand side (as indicated on graphics at the

staple and nail exit) with point facing upwards (fig.1b) THE GUN MAY JAM IF NAILS ARE INSERTED IN THE

WRONG SIDE.
*Arrow

iv) Slide staple or nail track back into closed position - a click indicates that it is locked in position.
Your staple and nail gun is now ready for use.

When I fire my im250 the firing pin often does not retract fully, so not letting the next nail to progress. I regularly clean and lub the gun and it fires all the time so the problem is not at that end of...


Using a wire "toothbrush" size brush, clean the track in front of the gun where the pin slides - where the nail groove is. **** particles from the nails and the plating from the nails sluffs off fouling the path and causes the pin to stick. After several cleanings of my gun, I noticed that this brushing of the track the firing pin follows keeps it operating for several days without the problem recurring!

Senco 701xp, I press to nail and get a air hiss as low nails


the problem is in the safey area of the gun, it could be the safety is only partially pushing in (what is sounds like) also, the track may be dirty and need lubed. Spray WD40 on the track and up the nose.

Also, check the thumbscrew on the back of the track by the handle and make sure the track is pushed all the way forward and tightened up

Paslode 900420 piece fell out


Be sure to remove the metal nose piece that covers the lockout bar when assembled. It may be stuck to the other half of the gun. Replace the bar and the spring and put the metal nose piece in its position over the lockout bar. At this point the metal nose piece will be on the opposite side. This will allow you to replace the 2 halves carefully so as not to loose the spring.
