I have a bostich that takes only the "ay" nails, the "ax" nails won't fit and I think there is one other size, all wire gauge sizes, the "ay" are the smallest. Check it out.

Can My FC 350 A used 28 degree nails


The manual for your gun specifies 34-degree nails from 2 to 3 1/2 inches long. 28-degree, wire collated nails are a Stanley-Bostitch thing and they only work in their nail guns, they will not work in your nail gun. You need 34-degree, paper-tape collated nails. I know Senco framing nails will work in your gun and I think Duo-fast makes 34-drgree nails but check that before buying them.

My bostitch bt1855 nail gun worked fine, until it started to dry fire 2inch nails. No problem with firing quarter inch nails. Any ideas?


Have you serviced it recently? and is the gas in date? The pistons do dry out and have to be oiled with special oil.

My new Bostitch bt200 was working fine until it started curling the nails. They went into the wood slightly & then curled around out the top of the board


A close inspection around the outlet area may reveal a piece on "nail-head", or other fragment causing the new nails to lean slightly. There could even be an entire smaller nail crammed into the area just forward of the nail exit (or just to the side). If I were you I'd get it in bright light, where I can sit and take my time, and with magnifying glasses (unless you have 20-20) use a small tool and inspect closely.

I have had this happen to me and I thought, "well there's not all that much place to hide"... And I didn't see it the first time I looked. But sure enough, there was an entire nail lodged in there in such a way that I thought it was part of the nail gun the first time! Good luck.

Oh, give it a liberal oiling while your at it.

I was shooting 3 inch nains and I switched to 2 inch. after 20 or 30 nails it failed to drive a nail. The driver makes an indention in the wood but does not drive the nail. What are the problem...


Check that the driver is returning all the way to top of the cylinder. Driver will not return to top when lower bumper is cracked, driver is bent, or piston oring is too loose/tight or low air pressure to gun. Also check that the two inch nail is the same angle as the three in. Place the nails on the outside of the rails with the heads aligned with the rail. The first nail should align with the path of the driver. If the head of the first nail is angled back away from the path of the driver, will miss fire.

I bought a used Bostitch nail gun. Model/serial # N6408406208021. What parts do I change to go from a 1 1/2 inch nail (approx. #6) to a 3 inch nail (approx. #16)? Where do I get the parts?


I do not think that the n64 will take a 3" nail. N64 will most likely fit a 2 or 2 1/2 inch. To verify the length of nail open latch door and measure the width of the slot into the barrel. Take a look at the bostitch n80 series of nailers for more power and longer nail.

I have a Bostitch BT200 that is dry firing. It seems that the "hammer" is not retracting after it fires a nail. I have to push it back manually and even then it seems to dry fire a few times before a nail...


The check seal is what causes the piston to retract. Remove cylinder and examine check seal. It is a small band that covers a series of holes and should fit snuggly around cylinder. Other factors that have effect on piston retraction are, split/cracked cylinder, bent driver and lack of lubrication. This gun is tricky to rebuild. Make shure that all the parts in the head are placed correctly. The kit does contain all the parts that you need. Good luck

Bostitch Nail Gun wont release and shoot nail


I had purchased a bostitch bt200 and am just now trying to use and after loading the nails 18ga 2" brads made by bostitch connecting to a small compresor that had 20 psi I pushed the nailer flush with the board and pulled the trigger and had no nails ejected. Is there something else I needed to do, manual was read.

Do I need to lubricate my Bostitch F21PL nailer from time to time? The reason I asked is, I got this new nailer. Installed Galvanized 2.5 inches nails from Bostitch and with the metal connector installed....


This is a fantastic nailer, very powerfull. Information about your nailer can be found below.

http://www.bostitch.com/default.asp?CATEGORY=BOS_FRAM_NAILER&TYPE=PRODUCT&PARTNUMBER=F21PL&SDesc=21%26%23176%3B+Industrial+Framing+Nailer+System

You should not need to lube the rails for the nails to feed. Your nailer uses plastic collated nails and should travel very easily inside the rails. I would remove all the nails and check for broken pieces of plastic from nail strips. Feeder should feel snug within rails and not wobble and spring should pull tight. When you install the nails do not release feeder against the nails with force as this could break the plastic strips and cause jam. Nail not feeding is usually caused by wrong nails, weak pusher spring or pusher guides broken /missing. Simple test for proper nails.
Place a strip of nails on the outside of the rails aligned with the edge of the rails and see if the first nail is perfectly aligned with the path of the driver. If the head of the first nail is angled back slightly from the path of the driver, the nails will not feed properly. Good luck.

My very slightly used BT200 jams every 50 nails. You take it apart with the very handy allan key and then it jams again after 50 or so. This is a pain and the local service centre told me it was because...


I would check the pusher spring on the magazine asssembly to ensure it keeps constant pressure on the nails, if they are running out it won;t push them tight and could cause the jam, also look at the driver to make sure not bent or the end worn excessively, the 3 screws as long as they are tight should not be a problem.
