sounds like the rubber seals have dry rotted prob from not oiling it enough, but you should be able to go on the Bostitch web site and order new rubber seals for the gun

you probably have a trigger valve that is green. if so then it will have to be replaced, the valve runs about $ 20 but you can put it in your self.

Yes your nailer will drive other sizes of nails. For info and parts go to www.bostitch.com and look for the support tab then select service parts. Here you will find parts list and manual. To remove the tva11 trigger valve remove the retainer pin (the pin is 3mm) for the trigger and remove trigger. Next remove roll pin/pins that retain trigger valve. Use heavy glove to catch trigger valve as you apply air pressure to gun. The valve could pop out with great force so try lowering the pressure to gun. Before installing the new valve, check the opening for sharp edges which will cut orings. Good Luck and email if you have more questions.

SOURCE: Leak inside Bostitch N80 Nailer, won't drive nails

If the unit is leaking it most likley need a rebuild kit. Go to a Bostitch service center and ask for an ORK-11 kit. That is all the o-rings needed to do an over haul. Or just have them do it.

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.

Bostitch framing nailer f21pl jammed 2 nails need to know how to clear the jam.


better to take it to a nailer repair shop, some nail jams can be very tricky, but if you are going to try to fix it. use a nail punch or other metal rod and with a hammer you might can remove the nails, DO NOT use a piece of metal that is larger than the nose.

Bostitch N80SB won't reset after firing


Most likely just needs piston oring. Remove nails from the gun and point nose of gun up then down again. If the piston travels up and down in the cylinder, replace the oring. The piston returns to top with air pressure and needs good snug piston oring and good lower bumper (if bumper is cracked or missing pieces ~ replace ). Be sure to lube the orings in the headvalve with silicone paste or white grease. Part # ORK11 oring kit will reseal the gun. Good luck with your repair.

I have a bostitch model #N88RH. It won't drive nails all the way down. How do I adjust it?


Using the web address below for reference, item number 46 is a small slider button on the nose of your gun. Push in on the slider and adjust the safety nose up into the gun for setting the nail deeper into the work. Good luck on your projects

You will find a list of differnet nails sold that will work on your gun. Bostitch is about the only nailer that uses a welded wire strip of nails. Good luck

Bostitch n80sb 1 framing nail gun shoots 2 nails at a time'' just checking to make sure it is the magazine before I order one


I would think a part other than the magazine. I would first check the condition of the nose to make sure it is not just worn out. Also check the driver for the end being flat and the back side (toward nail)not worn excessively and lastly check the O ring on the piston. Starting with nose unplug air and look to see if oval and then bounce the tool without air and see if the piston drops from the rest position. If so that is where I would start. Let me know if something other than this and I will try and help. I have worked on quite a few of these. If I have helped you would you please rate my response accordingly. Thank you

Will bosch nail guns operate with Paslode brand nails?


The F28WW takes 28Deg nails that are collated with wire, so your nails won't work in that gun. The N80SB is also a 28Deg nailer so your 30 Deg nails won't work in that gun either. Sorry about the bad news but it looks like your going to have to spring for new nails
