The gun needs to be rebuilt. The seals, diaphragms, and valves need replacement. Do a search on the internet for Stanley Nail Gun rebuilding kits. Simple job to do. I did mind last year for under 15 dollars I think. Make sure you replace all the parts including the "O"-rings.

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.

The driver must be all the way up for nails to feed properly into place. Remove air and nails from gun. Examine the gun for driver neer bottom of gun. Driver could be broken or missing. If driver is neer bottom, push driver all the way up and test for proper action. If it only shoots one nail, time for oring kit or driver is bent. If it continues to work add only a few drops of oil as needed during use. If oil is coming out of nose, you have added too much oil. Parts are at www.bostitch.com. Good luck

On the trigger of my Bostich Spiral load nail gun AND my Bostick trim nail gun air is leaking profusely from the trigger. Nail guns were not in use for about a year. When I first used them this weekend,...


A nail gun works on compressed air.
When you hook the air hose to the gun it fills a cylinder with air pressure.
When you pull the trigger. the cylinder pressure is released onto a firing pin that shoots the nail.
The air pressure line is also connected to the trigger and therefore the trigger has to be sealed.

When ever using a nail gun, you add a bit of gun oil in the back of the gun (not 3-in-1motor oil, it has to be non-detergent gun oil)

If you haven't used the gun in a while, it is best to oil up the gun and let the oil run down into the gun.
If you use anything but gun oil, the seals will give out.

Your trigger seal has given out. It is probably an 'O' ring. You can access it by taking it apart. Look for the O ring.
Bostich makes re-build kits for the different guns that you can buy on-line.
Back when I was in construction, there were several nail gun shops that sold and serviced nail guns, and sold nails to the contractors. I don't know if that business model is still active or if you have to send the guns to Bostich service center.

My bostitch bt200 recently will not shoot 2 inch nails, it seems to be to tight inside the holder


I have a bostich that takes only the "ay" nails, the "ax" nails won't fit and I think there is one other size, all wire gauge sizes, the "ay" are the smallest. Check it out.

Hitachi NR83A2 nailer pushes next nail down


Are you using full round head nails?

The hissing indicates your O-rings are worn out and need to be replaced. This is not covered by warrenty and is common for all nail guns. Lots of kits are available on Ebay or your local Hitachi service center should stock them.

Hope this helps,

Cheers

My bostitch 1664fn finish nail gun blows lots of air out exaust


Open the front and clear any jammed nails that are there. Oil the gun, push the drive pin back in if it didn't go back in when the front was off and try again. If there are repeated nail jam issues, try genuine Bostich nails.

Nail is jammed ln a bostich n88rh how do you clear the barrel


I have solved my problem, I am going to dump this bostich even though it is a brand new product that has not been used in over a year, has only fired approxamately a dozen nails and go with another product that has an honest customer relation rep that does not charge you for information on their products.
I will also remember my experiance with this company and there products

Yours truly

Porter cable fc350a frame nailer shoots just air


Could be a couple things, first are you using the right nails in the gun e.g. collation and degree. Second do the nails move freely in the magazine and how is the pusher spring on the nail does it have enough pressure. Then I would unplug from air remove all the nails andjust tap the nose on a piece of wood and does the driver drop? If so the piston Oring is worn and needs replaced, but if you do that I would recommend replacing all the rubber. Let me know and I would need the exact model number to come up with parts.

Bostich gun problem


If the piston/driver is broken, the gun will fire however nailing will not take place because the piston will jam in the cylinder. Sometimes the cylinder will also crack when the driver goes. If the piston is not broken but stays down, then check the cylinder check valve, worn lower bumper, bent driver or cracked cylinder. 18 guage nailer has a very thin driver which will easily bend or break. Parts however are not expensive.
