Usually the pin on the tva6 valve is worn (slightly shorter). You could replace the valve or try adjusting the safety foot to pusher the inner part of the trigger higher into the valve. If you have a green tva6 valve the pin is usually plastic and wears fast. The new tva6 white valves have a metal pin and works better. Good luck.

My NT65AB is double firing every 4th to 8th fire, is there an adjustment on the trigger?


Chris, you will have to check your manual to see if your make and model has adjustment. Double fire is normally caused by one of three things,
1. The nailer is not being held down with enough pressure when the gun is fired.
2. Triggers valve is leaking and not releasing fast enough for a single shot.
3. The pressure fire feature on the nose of the gun (if applicable) is faulty.
If adding pressure does not help, then it is most likely faulty trigger, replace it. For guns that use a press-and-fire system, the spring in the nose of the gun may be worn, causing the double fire of nails.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

My dewalt dc 618c won't fire out nails when nailing doorstop heads. But I does nail the uprights??


Most nailers have a pressure sensitive safety feature surrounding or near the nailer head. This is so that they won't fire unless pressed against a surface. You may not be holding the nailer against the doorstop head board with enough force to release that safety.

Gun fires mor than one nail at a time porter cable model da 250a 15 ga. finish nailer


There are two issues that people have with nailers that sound the same however are totally different. Firing more that one nail at a time can be taken as; two nails being driven with one fire or the nailer vary rapidly firing a second time almost instantly after firing the first nail and each time only drive one nail. Problem of double fire (either type) is very common with nailers (the gun very quickly fires twice), however two nails at once can only happen if the wrong gauge nails are used in the gun. A 15 g nailer can very easily pass two 18 g nails or, with more difficulty, pass two 16g nails. To help prevent the driver blade from hitting two nail heads at once, most drivers are slightly tapered at the tip so that the driver will hit the first nail and the tapered part will push the other nails back into the rails slightly. Remove the head of the nailer and pull out the driver. Measure or compare the thickness of the driver to the thickness of the nail head. If you are sure that you are using 15 gauge nails, check the driver for taper. The tapered part should face the rails. If not tapered, try carefully grinding a taper keeping the tip cool so that you do not effect the hardness. You could also check for other brands of 15 g nails with slightly more spacing between the nails. There is a big difference in quality among brands of nails. Good luck with your repair

How to adjust double shot for Hitachi nail gun


The condition of the driver oring is an indication of wear of all the other orings in the gun. Remove the nails and lightly tap the nose against piece of wood. If the driver drops to bottom of cylinder the oring is worn out and time for oring kit. Hitachi nailers are sensitive and will double fire if placing the foot against work then depressing trigger. Adjust the depth thumb screw several turns either direction then depress trigger and quickly bump gun against work. Good luck with your repair.

My N88rh shoots two nails at a time


N88rh uses a full round head plastic collated nails which are spaced apart enough that the driver cannot hit two nails at once. If your are using other nails that fit into your magazine that are closer together you may in fact drive two nails at once. If, however you are using the correct nail and the nailer shoots twice, then you probable have a very sensitive firing valve. You could change the TVA6 valve or change the actual trigger. To overcome this problem of double firing and you do not want to try changing the firing valve, you need to change the trigger to sequential type instead of bump fire type. This trigger is usually white and will only permit one nail to be fired. Check www.toolpartsdirect.com or bostitch.com for parts. Good holiday

My Stanley Bostitch SB-1850BN brad nailer will not sink the brad. It leaves it about an eighth of an inch above the surface. Adjusting the head using the adjustment thumbwheel does not help. Any...


You may have a broken tip or bent driver. Remove tha nails from gun and dry fire into a piece of wood. You should see a nice little indention. If you continue to hold the trigger and the nailer against wood after firing, the driver will stay in the lower position for examination. Just fire into wood and keep gun against wood while holding trigger and lean gun to side untill you see the tip. If you see broken tip or no tip order repair kit that includes driver, or driver alone from www.bostitch.com or ebay. Good luck

Paslode gas nailer trim gun


there is no pendulum inside these guns it should work no matter what angle or upside down you are shooting it. If it is not retracting the piston trying cleaning the area and then lubricating really well that should do it if not repost and tell what that does.

Hitachi NR 83A2S, Nail wont fire properly


The NR83a has an adjustment just below the triggering plunger. It is a 6mm hex head bolt with a locking nut. Loosen the nut and adjust screw out several turns and re-test. Make adjustment as necessary. I have seen many of these gun without the locking nut which allows the bolt the adjust itself all the way down. AS parts wear this screw needs to be adjusted. The pushing lever and the plunger are wearing smaller/shorter, that is unless the locking nut was missing. Remove gun from air supply for safety when making adjustments. Good Luck an email if you have other qustion about this gun.

The nails aren't going in far enough using a air cleat nailer


I just finished 800 square feet of oak flooring with this nailer. You might have to increase the psi at the gun and make sure it gets a good square firm hit to set the nail. You can swing and hit the thing pretty hard, I hit it hard to set warped boards in place. I used 120 psi for best results, I tried 90 psi but had more misfires. The nail head only needs to set in far enough so the head is touching the tongue and so the next board will fit. The nail won't be buried into the tongue like you might think. If the occasional nail protrudes from the board you can use a nail set to drive the nail the rest of the way in, but I found that most of the nails didn't want to set by hand. I either clipped off the head with side cutters and folded over the remaining tab or did my best to set the nail if it wasn't long enough to clip. If it bends over really ugly, just carve a little wood from the groove lands on the next board to clear the nail stub. Removing the nails is difficult, it's best to let them be rather than risk damaging the flooring. Also, don't let the gun get down to the last nail. Sometimes if you try to fire the last nail on a strip it will twist and damage the flooring. Always keep a few nails in the gun just to be safe. Hope this helps.
