Question about Tools & Hardware - Others

1 Answer

I have run less than a hundred nails through my new angled nailer and now the trigger does not do anything. I looked for and tried to clear any possible jam, checked air pressure, took out and reloaded nails and still not working. Need help.

DOUBLEFIRINF AND JAMMING. DONT HAVE A MANUEL SO NEED TO KNOW WHAT NAIL TO USE AND THE ANGLE


Double fire is usually caused by trying to use a bump fire trigger system as single fire (place on work then pull trigger). If however the gun double fires when bump firing, replace the trigger valve. Some nailers have the ability to select bump or single fire. The selector for bump or single fire is usually on the trigger or just above or below the safety actuator. Other brands offer different triggers available as a part number.
When trying to determine what nail to use, look for the model number of the nailer. Letters associated with the model number will give you a clue. Example; the letters RN in the model number indicates Round head Nail. The angle of the nail is easy to determine. Just measure the angle formed by the path of the driver and any straight line of the rails.

Check the safety trip make sure it is pushing back far enough. If it doesn't then it won't do anything. When it was fine just moments earlier.

Nail gun problem


This is a bottom fire tool. (NV83A2) You need to hold the trigger down and then as you place the nailer to the wood the safety will depress and it will fire once. This is usually done in one, swift action. If you do this in the opposite way by placing the tool to the wood and then pulling the trigger they often will double fire.

Hitachi NR83AA shoots two nails on one pull of the trigger?


Best practice is to bump fire the gun to prevent double fire. Do not place the gun on the work and pull the trigger. This takes practice while using at an angle. Works better if the nose piece has rather sharp points to help nose to stay in postion while you bump. With trigger depressed, practice without nails bumping/hitting wood at different angles untill you can bump hit at the spot that you need the fastener. If the gun double fires while bump-firing, most likely all the safety/trip parts are worn/loose. Not expensive to replace. Good luck.

NR90AE Nails jammed how to remove


New user will jam the gun/ nails because gun was most likely not bump fired. Placing the gun then depressing trigger will usually cause double fire in the hands of new user. New user should practice on scrap lumber bump firing at many angles till they get the idea; or give them a training period with a nailer that has a single shot trigger (they may develop bad habits with single shot however).

My gun has always from day one punches out 2 nail and jams up or not, is there an adjust ment for this problem


Nailers will double fire or at times, the driver will hit two nails with one stroke. The first issue is caused by sensitive trigger or worn orings and the second problem is caused by faulty nails (too close together in strip ) or the driver is bent slightly allowing the driver to strike the head of the second nail in line. One way to prevent double fire is to use the single trip trigger (usually white plastic). With this trigger, you must lift the gun off the work, release the trigger and press the gun against the work and pull the trigger. If you are using the black bump fire trigger and it double fires, replace the trigger valve. The issue of the driver blade hitting two nails with one stroke can be solved by examining the driver blale for damage. The blade should have a taper on the side that faces the nails. This taper is there so that as the driver hits the first nail the taper will gently push the rest of the nails slightly into the rails out of the way. If generic nails are used, make sure that the nails are designed with the proper spacing and angle. Easy test. With the gun on its side, place a strip of nails on top of the rails with the heads aligned with the angle of the rails. Move the strip of nails so that the first nail is in the path of the driver and the heads are still aligned with the rails. The first nail should align perfectly with the angle and path of the driver. If the head of first nail is in the path of the driver however the shaft of the nail is angled toward the rails, the driver blade may hit two nails. If the point of the first nail is in the path of the driver and the head is angled back toward the rails, you may have miss fire. If the nails are perfectly aligned with the rails and the path of the driver and the driver is hitting the second nail, grind more taper at the bottom inch of the driver. Good luck

Using recommended 3 1/2" nails; cannot get the nailer to sink the nail all the way to the head. Depth is set to max and air pressure within recommended range of 70 to 120 p. s. i. g.


remove the nails and air hose. tap the gun lightly and does the driver fall down?? if so it needs new o rings and doesn't have enough seal to drive the nail. also look at the condition of the driver. FOLLOW CLOSELY, reconnect the gun and remove the nails pull back on the follower and using a piece of wood to activate the safety hold gun at an angle, weara safety glasses and depress and hold trigger to expose the driver, does it extend past the nose and LOOK DONT TOUCH to check the condition of the end. release the trigger. this should give you some ideas why. also recheck the nails for proper collation and head are they clipped or full round. Let me know and I will try and help further. READ closely before attempting the above ideas.

DeWalt d51822 framing nailer, shoots 2 nails at once 1 in 5 times


I worked at at tool rental center while attending college and learned from the old tool masters about nails and nailers. Rental stores have many different brands of nailers to rent and customers would bring their own nails of all brands. You will notice on the case/box that your nails will /should work on many other brands however the degree or angle of the nails is not always exacly as stated on the box. You should check with protractor the exact angle of your nails and also check the exact angle of the nailer. Use straight edge on travel path of the piston and another on guide rails to check angle of the gun. You will discover that all is not as stated as in a perfect world. If the angle is off slightly, the head of the second nail will get into the path of the driver. This happens mostly with clip head because the nail heads are so close together. The full round head is spaced further apart with less jamming. If angle is off slightly, take a look at other brands of nails with protractor in hand, the angle will be different slightly or choose a slightly thicker nail. Look for the nails to fit with bottom of nail hitting the barrel first. This will move the head of the nail slightly away from the center line. Finally do not release pusher with force as this will jamb nails closer together. Good Luck!?
