SOURCE: Help with Bostitch N60 air nail gun.

If it is a N60FN you will have to install a new trigger valve P/N TVA6. Any Bostitch service center should have them.

SOURCE: How do you safely remove jammed nail gun?

Not sure exactly what Bostitch framer model you have, but if it is powered by compressed air, as long as you remove the air hose from the nail gun, there should be no risk of the nail gun firing while you remove the jammed nail. There should be a way to access the driver area from the top of the nail gun, even via a latch or a couple screws. Remove the top part of the driver area and that should give you access to the jammed nail, which you can remove. Use long nose pliers or something similar if the nails are really stuck.

SOURCE: bostitch n80sb 1 framing nail gun shoots 2 nails

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

SOURCE: nail gun not putting nail in all the way

you need to disassemble de gun,
once you take the rod that pushes the nails. you'll see that at the end of it its threaded that is the adjuster
you just turn it the way it needs to go. it is pretty simple what takes you more time is the disassemble process and of course putting everything back together.

How do i control the depth the nail shoots in a bostitch coil nailer


The bostitch nailer pictured along along with your question is a RN46 roofing coil nailer. It has a dial on the front of the nose for adjusting depth. Some older nailers (roofing nailers) do no have a means of adjusting so were set at the factory for best performance. The question of depth usually comes up when lower bumper fails and the nail is driven too deep. Easy test. Remove nails and find a very soft piece of wood. Dry fire the gun against soft wood and measure how deep the driver is entering the wood. Harder test. Remove the head and use any handy tool to push driver down to bottom. Measure how far the driver extends past nose (should be about 1/8 to 3/16). If more, replace the lower bumper. Good luck

What part do I need to remove to make a bostich MIIIFS floor stapler to shoot 2 inch staples


You shouldn't have to do anything to the MIIIFS flooring stapler to shoot 2" staples. It is designed to shoot 1 1/2" to 2" staples right out of the box. If your stapler won't feed 2" staples, check the magazine all the way up to the power head for any foreign material that may hold up your staples.

Only shoot out one nail and get stuck. The pusher pin get stuck.


more than likely, it just needs oil
the gun should have come with a bottle of gun (pneumatic too) oil. You'll need to over oil a little at first with about 8 drops, then about 3 drops EVERY time you use the gun

The gun is difficult to get to shoot. you have to wiggle it and push the nail down to get it to shoot


Unfortunatly that is a common problem for those nailers. If you replace the contact housing assembly,that usually fixes the problem. P/N 174084 Bostitch service center will have the proper parts.
