How do I connect the air hose to the compressor and the air gun?

Yes you need a quick release couple r kit male/female kit prob 3/8
also get a roll of Teflon tape wrap the male ends in it before you add the new fittings also you might to buy a "swivel" quick release and use it on the end that goes to the gun this helps stop the hose or line from bindind up on you and they don't cost to much oh ya keep a dab of oil on the ball bearings...

Product NR83A2. Lubricate is coming from the trigger and exhaust cover. The nailer is new and I put lubricate in the gun prior to placing the air plug on. What is the best way to drain the excess...

Excess oil will eventually be consumed /blown out of gun, however if you store the gun over-nite with air inlet pointed down, gravity will assist. I find that oil /water will accumulate inside gun especially if compressor is passing oil and/or weather conditions cause system to produce lots of water. Majority of guns that come in for repair suffer from a lack of lubrication. Several drops at start of day should be ok for oil lubricated compressors and maybe more for oil-less. If oil drips out of gun overnight (if stored as stated above) then reduce drops. What actually shortens life of gun is debris that enters gun from handling and that enters hoses during transport. Before connecting air hose to gun (with hose under pressure) momentarily connect a spare quick connect fitting and blow debris out of hose.

My Dewalt framing gun blows compressed air thru the nailer nose? Thx Kurt

Rebuild gun with gasket repair kit.
How it works: Compressed air enters through air hose and fills gun cylinder.
When trigger is pulled, air inside cylinder rushes out and pushes firing pin that shoots nail.

Inside the gun there are gaskets that seal the nose, the trigger and the cylinder head.
When any of those three gaskets fail, then air starts leaking.

Putting a few drops of nail gun oil into gun before connecting hose is supposed to protect gaskets.
But everything wears out, and sometimes folks use 3-in-1 oil instead of gun oil.
3-in-1 is detergent type oil and will cause gaskets to fail.

Another thing is guns that are not used frequently and gaskets get dry.
Putting in a few drops of oil and then immediately shooting gun will cause gasket to fail, because gaskets are still dry.
Best to put in plenty of gun oil, and let oil go down into gun for a few hours before connecting hose and shooting. Even so, nail guns are designed to be used every few days with continual oiling.

When shotting the gun the nails dont go in all the way. ive tryed raising the air pressure and adjust that littlet still doesnt shoot all the way. thing on the gun but still doesnt work

you can try to use connections with bigger holes and a hose of bigger diameter, so you have more air at the gun en less pressuredrop over the hose and connections. try first to fit the gun direct to the compressor and test if it is better.

Hitachi nail gun nr90ad leaks from trigger when air hose is connected

Orings, they have to be replaced every few years. Warranty does not cover them.

Any Hitachi service centre should stock them. Or find your model on Ebay:

Hope this helps!

I can not change tools without letting all the air out of the compressor. Reason is I have a hook on my left hand. If I had a shut off value on the out let I wouldn't have to empty the air each time I...

i think quick connects will work for you, as long as you are talking nail guns or impact guns etc..

you can hold the tools between you legs and use your good hand to work the fitting

That is how i did it when i cut my finger off

good luck

Titan spray gun issue

the fitting on the gun is bad or the wrong one. get a new one with the right threads for the gun end and the corrisponding fitting for the hose end. gun may be npt thread and hose might be jic thread.
chances are home depo has the correct fitting.

I have a Paslode framing gun. When you connect the air hose, air comes out of the rear of the gun. What would cause this issue?

There is a large diaphram inside the nailer (inside) that is out of place or damaged.

Remove the 4 screws to access the diaphram and inspect it.

No pressure

It is probably air locked....Here's what you need to do. Connect the garden hose, and HP hose, but not the gun. Turn on the water, and let it run while you make sure that there are no high points in the garden hose that can trap air....Work the hose so that any air is displaced through the pressure washer. Continue in this manner through the HP hose. Shut off the water and connect the gun. Turn the hose back on, and operate the gun for several minutes, pulling the trigger and releasing. This alternately allows the water pressure to build up on house pressure and then to depressure, pulling residual air from the system. Release the trigger, and start the machine. Usually, this is enough to get full washing pressure. If it is very difficult to start, you can hold the trigger down on the gun and pull the start cord at the same time. Holding the trigger down acts as an unloader, making the starting easier.

My nailer blows out air when I connect to the hose.


Have you been lubricating it regularly with nail gun oil. We use framing nailers every day at the commercial tree farm I work at and one of the operating instruction is to put 6 to 8 drops of oil in the air hose connection on the nailer before every use. I suspect the O ring on the piston is worn out/

Hope this helps Good luck Loringh PS Please leave a rating if appropriate Thks
