SOURCE: what brands of nails will work in my 15ga finish nailer 1000993

Here are a few tips on buying nails for your nailer. Nails are sold in two basic categories, clip head and full round head. The clip head are lower in price and are usually taped on glued together with no spacing between them. The full round head have spacing between each nail and are held together with plastic. Some nailguns can use both types. It is important to verify the angle of your gun. To measure the exact angle use a straitedge along length of rails and a protractor at the barrel of the gun. Place the protractor on the barrel with the 90 and 0 degrees aligned with the barrel and hold the straitedge aligned with the rails and the 0 degree mark. Read the angle. You may find that your gun measures a different angle. Nails are sold from 0 to 34 degree. 34 degree is usually clip head for Paslode, Senco, Hitachi and other brands. I find that many brands of nails do not list the angle, but list the name of the gun instead. This makes it difficult for non-branded guns. Take the protractor into the store and measure the angle of the nails or place the nails on the outside of the rails to see if they align with the barrel. Shop several stores because nails vary by brand. Once you verify the perfect fit, ask for a sample strip to try in your gun. When you identify the angle and type, use this information to shop for price. Most nails are imported from around the world, however there are nails still produced in the US costing more. Home Depot and Lowes do not carry a full range of nails.
=Google the internet for more info on nails such as www.nailzone.com. They sell a 33 degree nail that may fit your gun. Good luck and email me or post again with more questions.

SOURCE: Trouble finding 3 1/2 clipped head nails 34 degrees

You can use the same nails that are used for these nailers: Porter Cable FC 350A, Hitachi NR83AA2, Senco FramePro 701XP, 751XP ,Ridgid R350CHA, DeWalt D51822, D51823, and Paslode F-3505. Make sure you purchase the correct shank nail. Nail length should be 2"- 3 1/2" and the shank should be .113" - .131". I have purchased nails for my FC350 at Home Depot and they are relatively inexpensive. Though you have to buy a case of like 2000 or 4000. The brand of nail is Grip Rite that I purchased. Any questions please post.

Your nailer uses a very common and lowest price nail when using bright nails. Other varieties are expensive, stainless, twisted, galvanized, so if you are a big user not a problem. I on the other-hand do not use very many nails in a years time. A case of nails will last couple of years. A box of stainless or galvanized will be an expensive proposition. Because of the weight of case of nails, shipping is very expensive unless you find speicals. At www.toolbarn.com , you will get free shipping for orders of $200 (less than 70lbs). Best bet is to find local dealers, and right now because of the economy, special pricing. Look for deals on broken cases of nails. I usually find broken/open cases of nails at Lowes for half price. Buy what ever you come accross that is a good price because nails have a long shelf life if you can keep them dry. Good holiday

Why is my DeWalt D51275 15 gauge angled finish nailer bending nails and jamming?


A few things to check - some may seem overly obvious but humor me:
1) Check your nails - make sure they are the correct angle and gauge
2) Check to make sure there is not a piece of a broken nail in the nose
3) Check the driver blade & insure it is not bent or chipped
4) Make sure the nail carrier spring is pushing nails forward and isn't getting hung up

Will not fire


Nail strip may not be fully seated, the ram may not have retracted due to no lube, or dirt or damage to an O-ring, or the saftey may not be disengaging, such as due to a bent lever, or faulty seals.

Harbor freight nailguns


Any nail or staple with the same specs can be used. For finish nails it would be the gauge (15, 16, and 18 being the most popular sizes) and angle (if angled and not straight sticks of nails), for staples it would be wire gauge and crown width, for nails it would be the nail diameter (.090, .099, .131 are examples), the nail angle in degrees (NOT counting a roofing nailer, some other coil nailers us slightly angled nails such as 15 degrees) and this is very important with a stick nailer as there are a few different ones out there, and of course max length your tool will shoot of any given fastener. Most boxes of nails/staples will have the specs you need printed on them somewhere and the owners manual will usually contain the same info.

Nails keep jamming in the gun. how do you fix that and not sure about the correct air pressure.


Not all nails are exactly to gauge, but if they measure about right (take one nail off strip and see if it fits snuggly into bottom of nose) most likely the problem is the driver; missing tip or bent. Remove head and pull out driver. If just the tip is broken you can grind it square again and if bent you could try to adjust. If not driver is available at dewalt service center and at www.toolpartsdirect.com Good luck

Nails don't go all the way through?


A couple of things, first i would just suggest checking all the orings and gaskets to make sure air isnt leaking, and second make sure the intake fitting is properply set. I believe an air leak is causing this to happen.
