2" 18GA Brad Nailer: I was given a CH nailer as a gift about a year ago...

I was given a ch nailer as a gift about a year ago. Went to use it today for the first time. Using the brads that came with the machine and the Campbell compressor I find the nailer does not deliver any brads. Just makes the loud air release sound but nothing else. I am not sure of the model number but it is the small one. The only number on the machine is DJ0306. I tried both the brads and the staples with the same result.any help would be appreciated. mel macneill

SOURCE: when I pull the trigger, the nailer just goes

The first thing that comes to mind is they are not being oiled properly. Follow the directions for the number of drops of air tool oil to put in daily. If they have been run dry, this makes quick work of the Orings and requires rebuilding the nailer with new Orings.

The second thing is if contamination has gotten into the cylinder bottom thaat can happen if a jam has ever occured.

Dis-assemble the nailer and inspect for these conditions.

SOURCE: does the campbell hausfeld model

Sb504000 works just fine with pressure range from 60 to 120 psi depending on material. Any small compressor will work great. Using the gun at max pressure will shorten the life of the gun. Best practice is to set pressure to just under 100psi for most work and increase pressure when nailing hard wood. Using at max pressure will strain the driver and the lower part of gun (screws that hold nose to body). Some hard woods will bend an 18 gauge nail. Good luck with your gun and have fun with your projects.

SOURCE: gun leaks

No it is not. It should not leak at all. Where is it leaking air from? The 3 obvious places are the exhaust at the top of the head, the nose where the driver comes down, and the trigger valve.

Nailer has very little power.there are no nails jammed


What about the compressor,? Is it up to 120 lbs? Does it have a reg on it? Most nail guns run at full steam, no need for the reg at the comp. If the gun isn't leaking air, It should be working. Check it out.

Hello My PC 18ga brad nailer its piston wont retr...


Check the regulator gauge on your air compressor to make sure you have enough air pressure going to your nailer. After replacing my nailer because the driver wouldn't retract, I discovered, when the replacement nailer had the same problem, that I had somehow turned the regulator and decreased the pressure. Now I have two fully operational nailers.

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.
