Remove with a pair of plyers. If that does not work use a nail punch and drive the drive pin back into the gun until the nail comes free.

Hi I have a brand new never used FR350 Framing nailer that was in storage for a few years that has never been used. I went to use it after putting in 6-8 drops of oil and it will not fire a nail!


Most likely the headvalve is stuck from storage. Easy to check. Remove head and try pushing headvalve in with thumbs. If headvalve is stuck, carefully pop out the headvalve and apply white grease on orings and cylinder surface. Retest. I have seen the cylinder seal break into pieces upon first use. I would suggest ordering a new cylinder seal and have ready for when old one fails. Good luck.

FR350 won't shoot nails


Normally I would say you aren't using enough air pressure because somewhere around 80psi (every tool is different) will not be enough to fully retract the driver. At 110 you are fine so that is not the case. I doubt it is broken because a broken driver will still retract unless it broke near the piston. My guess is it needs the o-rings replaced but you can pull the top head and pull the driver out first to make sure. Parts and breakdowns can be found here as DeWalt owns Porter Cable.

I changed the feeder springs in my hitachi NV83 a2 and it wants to double fire and jaming up the driver with seconded nail. it was skip nailing before i changed springs. any help you could give me would be...


Your nailer is a very heavy duty nailer with very powerful blow. Works best with full size nails, not 2 inch range that are used in fencing, they are not spaced correctly for your gun (like hitting number 6 nail with sledge hammer). Open side door and remove the nails, leave the door open and dry fire gun against piece of rubber or old coiled air hose. The driver should return all the way up between shots and the feeder should move back then forward just as fast as the driver moves. If the feeder seems to move in slower motion then pull feed piston and replace orings and remove debris from feed cylinder. If the driver seems to stick out further than normal then lower bumper could be breaking up causing debris to enter feeder. Make sure that the driver is not bent and has a squared bottom, if rounded, remove and grind square. Finally adjust the depth control up or down slightly and bump fire for test, do not place gun on the work then fire. good luck

Did you rebuild the tool? If not remove all the nails and unplug air, BUMP nose on piece of wood and does driver fall down? If so the pistion o ring needs to be replaced. Also if this is not the case look for a jammed nail in the magazine/nose area. Next check for a bent driver blade. All the above could cause your problem

Hello i have a mildly used FR350 round head framing nailer. the problem is that it will shoot two or three nails then jam up? thanks todd


This gun is very reliable unless tip is broken or miss-shaped and or wrong nails are being used. Depending on model # could be clip head or full round. For best results do not use generic nails because they are not the exact angle required. Place a strip of nails on outside of rails with nail-heads aligned with edge of rails. The first nail should align with path of the driver (place a straight edge alighed with path of driver). Most generic nails do not align correctly. Good luck

16g wont shoot nails. bottom flat piece comes out


You broke the "hammer" you can open the housing and replace it, fairly simply. You can buy replacement parts at most large scale hardware or tool stores. The task takes about 10 min, and some simple hand tools.
