Question about Air Tools & Compressors

1 Answer

My campbell hausfeld 3 1/2 nailer has been working fine, just today will it started misfiring. It would put out one nail, fire again -no nail. It seemed to be every other one, then it would be good, then no nails 2-3 times in a row, then fire again. Is there an adjustment needed or maybe oiling? I have been using Grip Rite collated framing nails, 21 degree, ring shanks, thanks

Use wd 40,and spray it in the air input hole,where you connect the air line,and use the nailer,multiple times,then oil the slides for the nail hopper,and then after you do this,re oil with tool oil.If this was helpful,please rate.

Does the campbell hausfeld model sb504000 2 inch nailer/stapler need an external air to get started?


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.

Gun fires, leaves good indentation, no nail. WCE working properly, took head apart to look for jam but nothing in there and am using compatible nails. Also oiled it but no luck. Was working fine doing...


Remove nails and use thin tool to push driver all the way up to top of cylinder. If the gun fires one nail then skips, the driver is not returning to top of cylinder. If no nails fire, then nails are not feeding into proper position. Driver must return to top to allow nails to feed into position. Most common problems are bent driver, worn piston oring and bad batch of nails(head too large). Good luck

Piston blade won't retract


I've had a similar problem and found a nail had broken and lodged itself in the nail housing causing the driver to get stuck forward.

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.

Trouble finding 3 1/2 clipped head nails 34 degrees


You can use the same nails that are used for these nailers: Porter Cable FC 350A, Hitachi NR83AA2, Senco FramePro 701XP, 751XP ,Ridgid R350CHA, DeWalt D51822, D51823, and Paslode F-3505. Make sure you purchase the correct shank nail. Nail length should be 2"- 3 1/2" and the shank should be .113" - .131". I have purchased nails for my FC350 at Home Depot and they are relatively inexpensive. Though you have to buy a case of like 2000 or 4000. The brand of nail is Grip Rite that I purchased. Any questions please post.

Campbell Hausfeld 3 1/2 framing nailer bends the nails


It is not the best brand but, it should work for a few projects. Increase the air flow and make sure it is lubercated. It is designed to shoot nails into soft wood, like pine. It could be a o-ring blown or damaged, which is easy and inexpensive to repair. Good luck. Phil.
