How to load brads


My experience is limited with such things.

I have a couple of staple guns that will take brads, unfortunately the brads for one of them are no longer available. The brads had to have a shape and size similar one leg of the staple and a little of the bend at the top so they looked like an upside-down lower-case letter J and it was simply a matter of sliding a strip of brads into one side of the staple magazine.

The other staple gun will accept a more generic sort of brad in the same way but they have to be brads designed for use in that type of staple gun, known as a tacker so they aren't confused with the bigger staple/nail guns. The tacker will generally accept only brads of 20 or 18 gauge.

I suggest you ensure you have the right brads and then just load them like you would the staples.

The nail gun will not shoot


I don't have that same model but my gun started doing something similar a while back. I was able to disassemble the head of the gun and found that the hammer or piston that drives the nail had rounded itself off and wasn't able to make good contact with the nail head. Instead it pushed itself on top of the nail and got wedged. It's nearly impossible to see the stuck nail or dulled piston head without taking it apart. Hopefully this will help.

Does the brad nailer only use 2" brads or cam smaller nails be used also


Most nail guns are labeled with the longest nail/brad they can shoot but are capable of shooting shorter nails/brads. There should be a data sticker on the gun, usually on the magazine rail, or at least in the manual that tells you what pressure to operate the gun at, what guage brads the gun can shoot and the size of brads from shortest to longest it can handle.

Not sure how to load nails into magazine


Generally two reasons for nails not to make contact with driver. Make sure that the driver is returning to top of cylinder. If it stays in the path of the nail feeder, the nail cannot slide into position. Second, nails are not the right type or gauge for gun. Some nails even if they are the right gauge have a large head not allowing the strip to enter into chamber. Remove air hose from gun, check that piston is all the way up, then slide nails into chamber and see if they go all the way in easily with-out having to push. You should see the first nail in place from bottom where nail shoots out. The angle of the nail is very important. most pin nailers are 0 degree (not angled), but others have an angle. The gun should be labeled as to angle of nail. Hold a strip of nails against the outside of the magazine and see is the first nail is in line with the driver path. Good luck and post again if you have other question.

Won't shoot staples. Proper loading instructions please.


Make sure the staples you are using are compatable with your gun they should be type 53 or JT21 staples and they are not longer tham the gun is capable of taking I think the maximum capacity for this gun is 5/16 or 8mm.
Turn the gun upside down and pull back the carriage, the staples are laid in the empty chamber in the gun itself not on the carriage points facing in the direction they fire ie points facing you .
Push back the carriage this should slide over the strip of staples until the carriage clicks shut.
You should now be ready to fire, try and keep pressure down on the gun as the recoil can make the gun bounce and you will leave the staples proud.
Hope this helps.

Bostich gun problem


If the piston/driver is broken, the gun will fire however nailing will not take place because the piston will jam in the cylinder. Sometimes the cylinder will also crack when the driver goes. If the piston is not broken but stays down, then check the cylinder check valve, worn lower bumper, bent driver or cracked cylinder. 18 guage nailer has a very thin driver which will easily bend or break. Parts however are not expensive.
