Whats the difference between a roofing nail gun and an ordinary nail gun ?


A roofing nail is designed to be easier to be removed, they have a smooth shank and wide head that hold down shingles. A siding nail has a ring shank. A roofing nailer is used to quickly pin down shingles across a roof, the depth at which they are drive in is generally shallower than a siding nail.
You can read a little more about roofing nailers here Best Roofing Nailer Shooting From the Hip Woodworking Tool Guide.

My roofing nailer just started blowing air and wont shoot any nails


Most often this is a jammed nail or head of a nail jamming the driver. Inspect to see if there is a jam and if you can push the piston back up freely. If there is no jam and the piston moves up and down I would install a service kit - one of the O-rings has failed.
If you let me know the model I can get you the part number you will need.
Good luck

I have a porter cable roofing nailer model # RN175 that does not advance the nails everytime what causes this?


Some causes, in order of probability:
Roofing nailers get a lot of tar build up on them, especially around the nose safety and nail feed pawl area. Cleaning off this buildup will usually take care of most problems with roofing nailers.
On the side of the gun away from the side you load the nails on there is a small cylinder with a piston inside that attaches to the feeder pawl. If air isn't getting to the piston or the piston's o-ring or spring is damaged, it won't cycle properly to advance the nails.
If the driver doesn't retract fully, the next nail won't be able to advance properly for the next shot. This can be caused by o-rings in the head that are worn or out of their proper place.

My makita an451 roof nailer keeps shooting 2 nails I've tried 2 different brands of nails


Nailers that use strips of nails (one nail directly behind the other) will sometimes drive two nails at once and is caused by damage to the driver. The nails are so close together that the driver will hit the first and part of the second nail head. Coil nailers, as your an451, use nails seperated by welded wire making it very difficult the the driver to hit the second nail. Usually when a coil nailer shoots two nails, it is acutally the trigger valve that acutates twice (two very rapid fires). Two very rapid fires is caused by faulty trigger valve. I have seen a roofing coil nailer fire one nail and a second nail drops out of the gun. Caused by weak / malfunction of nail feeder or wire used to weld nails together is too thick.

My nailer doesn't have the power it used to. the nail needs a tap with a hammer every 3rd blow or so.


If it is a nailing hammer for a roofing project, I have used a degreaser to spray the end. Even on my air nailers that I use 16d nails in I do this. Make sure you keep 3 drops of the (FOR THE NAILER) IN IT'S RECEIVING END EVERY DAY! This will keep the inside good and slick.

My bostitch rn46 seems to double or triple shoot nails frequently. Am I not using the tool properly or could there be a mechanical problem with the tool?


if u are right nails for gun,then make sure when u put coil in and feed in front of firing pin the nails are straight with pin and connecting wires are not bent causing nails to fall out of alingnment.
