Bostitch bt50b makes a plop sound but driver does not come down

This most often happens because of a leak in one or more of the O-rings or a lack of lubrication. The plunger is not in the proper position and doesnot have enough power to move the plunger or the plunger assy moves only enough to clear the relief valve for reset. In any case, the unit shouldbe taken apart, cleaned and relubed. This may be enough to resolve the problem. I would change the O-rings at the same time and be sure to lubricate them.

See the link below for additional information and a link to a diagram site.

I have a central pneumatic 16 ga. nailer how do I get parts !!!

Central Pneumatic is a Harbor Freight brand, if parts are available for that item it would be though them. Hopefully they can get you what you need. If not unfortunatly that nailer will be a throw-away. If you need to replace this nailer I would recommend spending the extra money and buying a name brand nailer like Porter-Cable or Bostitch, besides both being reputable brands, they offer factory service, parts and rebuild kits for their nailers.

Bostitch nail gun loss of pressure, won't fire nail

Hello. I can help you. The nail gun you have uses 18 gauge brads. I would use only original Bostitch 18 gauge.

The one MM of difference you mention is the reason why you do not have the pressure you did have. Get rid of those 31MM brads and get the 18 gauge. Home Depot carries the Bostitch line. I would go there or to
