Try to regrind the driver blade, there should be a small nick on the driver blade where the nails are fed in, if the driver is to fat it will catch 2 nails,and cause nail jambs.

My brand new DC608 18 gauge nailer jams every time on the 2nd nail.


Per your addendum I would have first told you to check that you are using the proper guage nails. Second you should make sure you are loading the nails in the lowest channel in the magazine so they are at the bottom of the magazine. If you load them into the top of the magazine they have more time to go off course before they get into the wood.

I know a lot of Dewalt nailers will not shoot properly once the battery is starting to get a little worn/has a lot of charging cycles on it. Their picky about having fresh batterys. How old is the nailer/batterys?

After shooting a nail the ram rod stays down not returning to the ready position


1.) Lubricate nail gun
2.) Use correct air pressure. finish nailers 80psi and below. framing nailers 80psi and above.

I use nail guns every day, when the rod doesnt return 90% of the time its lack of lubrication. You should add a drop of air tube lubricate everytime before use.

If that doesnt work the rod may be bent or the seal around it may be worn.

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.
