    It sounds like the piston/driver might be damaged, I would suggest going to Bostitch.com and downloading a breakdown if you are going to try and repair yourself before disassembling, Also you want to check the condition of the bumpers while tool is apart.

What part do I need to remove to make a bostich MIIIFS floor stapler to shoot 2 inch staples


You shouldn't have to do anything to the MIIIFS flooring stapler to shoot 2" staples. It is designed to shoot 1 1/2" to 2" staples right out of the box. If your stapler won't feed 2" staples, check the magazine all the way up to the power head for any foreign material that may hold up your staples.

My bostich flooring staler wont fully drive every staple and it is getting wors....it is not leaking air


Your compressor needs to be checked first. There is an air pressure regulator on most machines - be sure all is in working order. It might help to be sure you're playing any lubricants in the stapler configuration as well.

What is the correct way to place the nails into the gun? This gun uses both cleats and staples. I am using cleats but it does not seem to be working. I may be putting the cleats in wrong.


If you have a Bostitch MIII FN it is only for cleats. Bostitch doesn't make a universal nailer that takes staples and cleats. The MIIIFN is the "floor nailer" and the Model MIIIFS is the "floor stapler"
Maybe check exactly what model you have and ensure you are not trying to put cleats into a stapler.

I HAVE A BOSTITCH NARROW CROWN AIR STAPLER AND THE STAPLES ARE NOT GOING FOREWARD FOR THE ROD TO DRIVE THEM IN. IS THERE SUPPOSED TO BE A SPRING BEHIND THE STAPLES TO MOVE THEM FOREWARD. PLUNGER COMES...


There is a spring to push the staples into place. Bostitch was purchased by Dewalt and moved their parts lists to the web address below. Enter your model number and order the parts needed. Good luck with your future projects.

Air leaks thru portals on cap after replacing rings and gaskets?


Remove the bumper cap and black exhaust hood from the gun. The three screws that hold the plunger to the poppet need to have lock washers and BLUE locktight on them. Clean them totally and reassemble.

I AM HAVING TROUBLE OUT OF MY BOSTITCH MIIIFS FLOOR NAILER


D Farley,
I repair these nailers all the time. Anytime the nail or staple is bending you have 2 causes. Either the stapler has a broken blade, the magazine is loose on the foot gate, or you are shooting into plywood over concrete. that is allowing the staple to hit the cement subfloor. Use 11 /2" staples on 3/4" wood floor over 3/4" plywood when over concrete.
