This happens to my gun too. You probably need to oil the gun once in a while. Here is how you fix it:
Disconnect the gun from the compressor first don't wanna get hurt or anything like that. There is a pin that shoots the nail out well that pin is jammed so what you have to do is push that pin to the original position. using a flat head screwdriver would help you to push that pin back into place. Let me know how that turns out please. I pretty sure that is the problem with your gun. Make sure you lubricate the Nailer once in a while.

Generally, if your nailer is not leaking air, the orings are probably ok. Remove the head and check for stuck headvalve or stuck driver/piston. Make sure that you can press the headvalve into the head with your thumb and that it returns. If your driver/piston is down when you pull the head, remove the cylinder and check for damage to it or the bumper. Some cylinders have an oring or strip of rubber about med section which acts as a check valve causing the piston to return to top. Check for bent driver or broken tip causing driver to jamb. Use silicone lube to assemble. Enjoy

SOURCE: brad nailer not firing nail...can hear brief air noise upon pulling the trigger

Porter cable makes a number of brad nailers (18 gauge) that very quickly suffer from the problem that you are having. You did not mention the model number of your gun but if it is one of these, (bn125a, bn200a, ns100a) kit # 60061 will fix the problem. It costs between 25 and 30 dollars. Google that part number or order from www.dewalt.com. Dewalt owns the porter cable brand. Before you order the kit, check that the driver blade is not bent and stuck. The driver should travel freely down the cylinder. When you install parts, use Danco silicone grease to lube (availabel at Lowes in the plumbing department) If your model # is different from those mentioned above, please email me and I will recommend a repair.

SOURCE: My Sears Craftsman 18 gauge brad nailer won't nail

Your driver is not returning. Depending on the model that you have there could be a couple of problems. The most likely is that your piston stop is crumbled and some of your seals are worn or damaged. Whether or not you can fix the nailer depends on if the parts are available from Sears Parts Dept. If you would like some more information about fixing your nailer please post which model it is that you are trying to fix and I can see if the parts are available. I will post the information back to you.

DOUBLEFIRINF AND JAMMING. DONT HAVE A MANUEL SO NEED TO KNOW WHAT NAIL TO USE AND THE ANGLE


Double fire is usually caused by trying to use a bump fire trigger system as single fire (place on work then pull trigger). If however the gun double fires when bump firing, replace the trigger valve. Some nailers have the ability to select bump or single fire. The selector for bump or single fire is usually on the trigger or just above or below the safety actuator. Other brands offer different triggers available as a part number.
When trying to determine what nail to use, look for the model number of the nailer. Letters associated with the model number will give you a clue. Example; the letters RN in the model number indicates Round head Nail. The angle of the nail is easy to determine. Just measure the angle formed by the path of the driver and any straight line of the rails.

Craftsman evolv braid nailer leaks air around the trigger when i try to nail. it does not nail sears no. 00915206000 mfg no. 42081 (for kit) on gun model:6G28/F50


Air leaking from trigger when trying to nail indicates that the headvalve is stuck or headvalve orings are dry and allowing air to pass. Remove the head and pull out the headvalve piston. Examine orings for cuts or broken (replace as needed if orings worn and cannot make seal). If headvalve was stuck/dry, lube with plenty of silicone paste lube (sold at Lowes in the plumbing dept. ). Should be good to go. Good luck

I have a craftsman framing nail gun model number 351-18320 question how I reload it just got it on craiglist


Hi, W/D here.
On the side of the slide that holds the nails will be a tab. If the gun is empty, it will be close to the base of the slide, near the head of the gum. Grasp the tab, and pull it all the way back until it locks in place. Load your nails. Now, near where the tab that you pulled back is locked in place, you will see a (usually) silver button. Pull back slightly on the first tab, then push the button, releasing the lock. Let the slide push the nails into place, and you're ready to go. Place 2 drops of oil daily in the nail gun where the air line connects, then hook up the air line. Fire away!
Here is a link to an exploded diagram of your nail gun. Double click the diagram to enlarge it. On the right side of the page is the link to a free download manual. Enjoy!

Check for pproper nails


what is the question, how to remove them and if so I would use a small pick to push them back out the magazine, and also when you get angle nails make sure you use the right guage.

I have a Sears framing nailer that uses clipped head nails.


I know on some other brands that to convert them we had to change the noses, but I honestly don't know about Craftsman. If you give me the model number I will try and do some more research and possibly come up with a tech support number for you.

DeWalt d51822 framing nailer, shoots 2 nails at once 1 in 5 times


I worked at at tool rental center while attending college and learned from the old tool masters about nails and nailers. Rental stores have many different brands of nailers to rent and customers would bring their own nails of all brands. You will notice on the case/box that your nails will /should work on many other brands however the degree or angle of the nails is not always exacly as stated on the box. You should check with protractor the exact angle of your nails and also check the exact angle of the nailer. Use straight edge on travel path of the piston and another on guide rails to check angle of the gun. You will discover that all is not as stated as in a perfect world. If the angle is off slightly, the head of the second nail will get into the path of the driver. This happens mostly with clip head because the nail heads are so close together. The full round head is spaced further apart with less jamming. If angle is off slightly, take a look at other brands of nails with protractor in hand, the angle will be different slightly or choose a slightly thicker nail. Look for the nails to fit with bottom of nail hitting the barrel first. This will move the head of the nail slightly away from the center line. Finally do not release pusher with force as this will jamb nails closer together. Good Luck!?
