Need metal slide for nt50ae2, plastic nail slide is allways jamming


I don't believe there is a metal substitute for the stock part. I did not see one on the parts diagram and it is unusual for something like that to be offered as an option. BUT if the tool is jamming I suspect it is not due to the pusher. Make sure you are using the correct gauge (18 for this tool) nails first of all. Make sure you air pressure is adequate. Somewhere around 90psi would be the minimum. If too low of pressure is used it will not allow the driver to retract far enough to advance the next nail. If the tool is not leaking air anywhere then the last thing to check is to make sure the driver isn't bent. That can also lead to jams.

How to load brads into stanley tre 550 electric staple/brad nail gun


HOW TO USE YOUR ELECTRIC STAPLER/NAILER
TO LOAD STAPLES

1. Unplug tool, (fig. 1)...(place on/off switch in "off" position, (fig. 2).)
2. Place on/off switch in "off' position.
3. Select proper staple length.
4. Use only staples identified by stock numbers on next page. Substitute staples may cause jamming.
5. Hold tool upside down. (Squeeze latch and pull, (fig.3).)
6. Drop staples in channel, legs facing upward. Push latch back in to lock in place, (fig. 4).

TO LOAD BRADS

1. Unplug tool, (fig. 1)...(place on/off switch in "off" position, (fig. 2).)
2. Use only brads identified by stock numbers on next page. Substitute brads will cause jamming.
3. Look for the image of a brad nail on the front side of the tool (fig. 5). Load brads into this side only.
4. Hold tool upside down (Squeeze latch and pull, (fig. 3).)
5. Drop brads into the channel, tilt the tool so the brads lay against the channel wall, (fig. 5).
Push the latch back in watching that the brad strip does not fall over.
6. Use High/Low power when driving brads.


TO STAPLE OR NAIL

1. Make sure the on/off switch is in the "off" position, plug stapling tacker in.
2. Turn tool on by switching to position 1 which is the "on" position and hold firmly against work surface to
engage safety mechanism.
3. Apply adequate pressure on the top of the knob (fig. 6.) while the trigger is pulled.

Check the link below for directions to a website that has complete diagrams. I suspect that a seal may be damaged and the air is not flowing correctly. I would first examine all of the orings. Also, using the diagrams as a guide, check for proper movement by hand while the gun is partially dis-assembled. Update this if you have further questions.

Hello My PC 18ga brad nailer its piston wont retr...


Check the regulator gauge on your air compressor to make sure you have enough air pressure going to your nailer. After replacing my nailer because the driver wouldn't retract, I discovered, when the replacement nailer had the same problem, that I had somehow turned the regulator and decreased the pressure. Now I have two fully operational nailers.

On my 1986 GPZ600 the rear brake siezes up when I use it.


The pistons themselves are generally the problem. The pins and guides just stop the pads from slopping about. Take pads out and caliper off and remove piston and clean out receptable. Check piston seal ring and dust (or packing) ring are not rolled, twisted or damaged. Your pads may even be worn too thin and plunger is having to push piston too far out and ring seals are not sliding on the smoother surface of piston receptable. Hope this helps. Below is a link to a typicall disc brake in exploded view form with part names.
Cheers.

My Brad sudddenly stopped working. Makes a Psft


If you've not already tried applying air motor oil to the gun than you should do this first. If this does not solve your problem than it's very possible that your main diaphram is worn or poruse. Thank you, Dana

Sounds like you need to service the caliper. Remove the piston from the caliper by pumping the brake pedal, be warned you will get brake fluid everywhere. Remove piston seals, dust and oil, you'll probably find that the grooves where they usually reside are full of 'crud' thoroughly clean the grooves, clean the seals then inspect seals for damage and replace if necessary, grease seals (high temp grease) and put back into caliper, wipe away excess grease. Inspect piston for corrosion, minor corrosion can be flatted back with 1200 grit sandpaper, if too badly corroded replace. lightly grease piston (high temp grease) and push into caliper. the piston should slide in easily by hand. Finally bleed caliper well, flush new fluid through entire system.

No brad


Your anvil is not returning to the home position to allow the brad to index into the receiver. Try and push the anvil up all the way to the home position. If that works, then you need lubrication, new return spring, etc. All related to the anvil firing.
