    there is no easy fix for this, I would remove the magazine and then try and punch out the easier of the nails jammed, it will take some time but it does work.

Won't drive the nails. The hammer slides over the top of the nail bending the nail and jaming the gun

odd, but may be nose part loose and or the magazine too loose, is your driver bent?
the magazine and the nose part meet check under the cover and make sure all the 3mm hex bolts are secure. should be 4 if im not mistaken.

D51822 is nailing at a 45 degree angle instead of 90 degree

hey not sure what the d51822 brand name is I work on bostitch as a service tech. so well the obvious question with the details you've given 45 degree angle? so are they bent over to get that angle? not sure how they can come out straight and get bent. ok the nose ( where the nail comes out) is it completely flat on the board? if so I would be nearly impossible to create a 45 angle. not doubting you. I work on F28WW bostitch thinking they are similar so, check the bolts on the top (loose or damaged) or the nose its self see if it is bent. it would be only slight because otherwise the driver ( what pushes the nail in) would get jammed and not fire at all .try that first thinking the nose is bent and if its bent its junk. because cracks are next and that's when really bad things happen fast.

Senco 601-at its deepest setting the nail likes a 1/4 inch of being flush. 110-130 psi and oiled good

The tip of the driver could be missing. Easy to check, remove nails from the gun, connect air, then push the nose against rubber hose (scrap airhose) (tilt the gun to side while pushing the nose against hose so that you can see the driver come out) and depress and hold trigger. When you fire the gun the driver should be visable (about 3/16 past nose). If you dont see the driver, then most likely broken at tip. If the driver is visable, then most likely adjusted to high or safety foot bent. Good luck

How does the framing nailer work with a black button grey button

Dewalt has two triggers available for their framing nailer. The black trigger (390746-00) is a bump style trigger. While holding the trigger, you will be able to fire a nail by pressing nose against work. This trigger is preferred by most framers because it is much faster. Gray trigger will only allow one nail to be fired. Bumping will not work with the gray trigger. With trigger released, you must place the nose against work then pull trigger to fire. To fire next round, you must release trigger, pull gun off the work, again place nose against work then press trigger. Check dewalt web site for recall information. Some dewalt framers have been recalled for faulty trigger. Good luck with your projects.

I ihave a Hitachi NT65MA4 (S) haven't got it to

I would check for the proper nail guage and collation and if that is correct I would take it back for a replacement. But check the nails first.

Nail gun will not fire the nail. Compressor works fine. Hammer doesn't retract enough to hit nail? Cause, solution?

could be a jammed nail in the magazine nose area, bent driver blade or problem with the o ring being worn.

My nailer simply stopped nailing. when I depress the nose and then pll the trigger, I get a puff of air, and that is is. Thoughts?

could be jammed nail, bent or broken driver or stuckpiston. unplug air and thoroughly look at the magazine for jammed nails, is the driver fully retracted if not could be bent or have something behind it and lastly, reemove the cap and look for a broken driver. Let me know if you need more help

Hitachi 83a2 (s) framing nailer jamed, there are 2 nails in cylinder, not sure how to clear the chamber. .

1.Remove the air hose
2.Hold the nose down on a 2x4 on the ground. Make sure the safety guide is full depressed.
3.Squeeze the trigger.

(I realize that sounds redundant, but I have to insure your safety as much as possible. We at FixYa want you to be safe. A Framer Nailer can be dangerous if safety precautions aren't observed)

4.Pull the slide back, and grab around it with your hand, up against the back of the gun. (Magazine)
If you accidentally bump the latch lever, the slide won't spring forward, possibly causing you injury by using this method.

5.Remove any nails. Pull the plastic strip of nails out.

6.The method I use here is to rest the air chamber cover on a table. (Top of the gun) Nose AWAY from your face. I use a small flat tip screwdriver, and see if I can move the Driver back up into the gun. Then see if I can ease one nail out at a time, by moving the nail down out of the nose.

You have two nails trying to drive out at the same time. They need to be separated from each other, so that you can get one nail out at a time.

Most of the time this occurs because of lack of lube. The gun is supposed to have 4 to 5 drops of pneumatic oil, added to the air hose inlet before starting the day out.

(Gun is faced so that the air inlet connection is straight up, oil is added, while the trigger is being squeezed in at the same time)

I don't rely on oilers in the air line. I think they're a bunch of hooey. I've had very few problems, when I have added oil manually at the start of the day.

Sometimes using those 'bargain' nails will cause a problem also. If you find a brand of nails that are cheap, this is the usual result.

Sometimes we framers are too fast on the trigger, and do not have the safety guide fully depressed, before firing the next 'shot'.

If you have further questions please post them.

Framing a 2x6 wall

does the nose piece go back as far when you actually use the gun as when you pulled it back? I had the same problem with a different model, The nose piece acts as a safety to stop the gun firing when not up against whatever you are nailing. If it a similar design to mine (and most are) if you follow the nose piece up the gun somewhere along that will be some sort of bend in the metal to form the safety. it sounds like this needs to be bent a little more so it actuates the safety off valve/switch. Be careful though that safety is there for a reason, dont bend it too far and make the safety too sensitive. Hope this helps
