Question about Arrow ET200 Electric Brad Nail Gun

3 Answers

Arrow ET200 nail gun only put nails in 1/8 of inch.

I just bought this yesterday so maybe this a defect or is there something I am not doing. I bought this because I am not good with a hammer. keep hitting my fingers. So at least with the gun only putting the nails in 1/8" I don't have to hold the nail to hammer it.

This electric nail gun does not have much power. Try shorter nails and softer wood. You need a pneumatic nail or staple gun for medium or heavy work. I have both a nailer and stapler and neither are very good.

I solved the problem. I took the nailer outside and plugged it into the outlet on my electrical post. It worked perfectly. I was not getting enough power from the outlet I was using in the house.

    I've had my et200 nail gun for over 3 years and it had never pushed the nails all the way into the wood until I decided to trouble shoot. I found this website and saw that I wasn't the only one with this problem. I took the gun, unplugged it from the long extension cord I was using, plugged it directly into the socket, and now......3 years later, it works great! I love it! Oh, then my husband says, yeah that's it, the extension cord was way too long and the gun wasn't getting enough juice.

If you do not plug the tool directly into the wall outlet, you must use a heavy duty (12 ga+) extension cord. Even with heavy duty extension cords, you must not use one that is too long or the tool will not get enough voltage/current to fire properly.
To adjust the depth of penetration (different woods, different penetrations, must adjust accordingly), try the following link: http://www.ehow.com/how_6427787_adjust-arrow-et200-nail-gun.html

Do you still need this? I have a good board from my ET200. I dropped it, and the piece that keeps the nail driver steady when it shoots in & out broke off. However, the gun still functions fine. Let me know.

Nail Guns costs


A good-quality starter set, including both a compressor and a small nail gun, can be bought for around 200 US dollars (USD). More sophisticated models can reach 1000 USD or more. Optional features such as a hard-shell case, safety trigger, and depth adjustment can drive the price even higher. For one-time jobs, a nail gun can also be rented at hardware stores and home repair centers.
