SOURCE: I have a Tradesman 8400
If the nailer is an older gun, could be a product sold thru Grainger. If however the gun is new, could be from china and parts are most likely not found. Ebay is a good source for information on identifying the tool to a mfg.
No problem however. I would just make the gasket out of automotive gasket material. Most newer guns have a head gasket made of oring material and do a very good job of sealing. If you have a thick paper looking gasket, use sever layers of gasket material (not cork or rubber). Cut two or three pieces of gasket material larger than needed and staple them together to make thick gasket. Remove the head and oil the surface of the body of the gun. Cut hole in the gasket material to allow for cylinder to fit thru if needed and make an imprint on paper (you can also use the old gasket if complete) just punch out the bolt holes and small vent hole and alignment bars within gun for now, dont trim the outside of the gasket. After holes are punched (I use a leather punch), install the head and test the gun. If all ok, just trim off the access gasket with shape knife without taking the head off (I use an exacto knife). Good luck
