Check the magazine area near the head for a jammed nail or other feed obstruction. It sounds like the driver is hitting the wood ok. Did you change nails (brand, type, or size) when this occurred? Make sure the magazine feed spring is ok.

My 601 won't shoot any spikes it just leaves a 1/4 '' indent were nail should be?


If you're getting an indent in the wood from the driver, the gun is working properly. If the gun isn't driving fasteners/nails it's because the nail isn't under the driver when it's activated. Several things could cause this: Having the wrong angle nails in your gun. There is something in the feed path of the nails preventing them from feeding fully into the nose piece. The feed shoe is jambed or feed shoe spring is broken.

My nt50ae2 brad nailer jams in the magazine. the feeder rides on top of the nails.


This happens. The follower jumps over the nails and the magazine binds.

Step 1. Remove nails, unplug hose.
Step 2. Remove the bolt at the bottom of the magazine with a 2.5mm hex key.
Step 3. Remove the magazine while holding the nail follower in place to the magazine cover.
Step 4. Carefully remove the nail follower and gently extend the yellow warning indicator and follower spring.
Step 6. Inspect the nail follower. There should be 3 indentations that are stamped into nail follower face. This is the culprit.
Step 7. With a small punch, make these three indentations deeper.
Step 8. Assemble and test. Repeat if necessary.

Hope this helps.

Finish nailer leaves large hole where nail has been driven in


This could be a couple things. First, is it truely setting a nail in the wood? If so, it sounds like it is over driving. This can be solved by adjusting the knob in the front of the nose. If it is still overdriving, it could be that you need to turn the regulator on your compressor down. Let me know how this goes.

Dewalt cordless nail gun fires but doesn't seem to feed the nails very well, alot of misfires.


Try another brand of nails -- maybe your gun doesn't like those. Also, blow any dirt out of the nail magazine.

Mastercraft Brad nailer piston always fires damaging finish but nail gets randomly shot. Thought it was a indent before nail shot to indent nail since it mostley shoots nails after second shot but lately...


The dial on the top of the gun is most likely the depth adjustment for the nails, this should solve the driver damaging the work piece. Make sure the nails are the correct guage for the nailer you have.

Air nailer won't nail


If youve never done anything to it could be a couple things. Have you kept it oiled (about 6-8 drops) before using and again at lunch if construction type work. Check the nails to make sure they move freely in the magazine Check the nail guage for proper size. and what I would do is fire it till it skips disconnect the air from tool and open the front door (for removing jams) and see the driver position. If it is partially down that would be the problem, check the driver for being bent. Lastly remove all nails and just tap the nose on a piece of wood and again check the driver position, if it moves or falls freely then the tool would have to have new rubber which might be a good idea anyway. Get back to me with the model number and I will research and see if they make an o ring kit.
