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

Need operators (owner) manual for tradesman 8031

Hi Jim, See you have been looking for awhile and understandably so. I don't have a manual and don't know anyone that does. Tradesman tools are manufactured by Rexon Corp. and they have a US office. I do not know where you are located so I have included the necessary information for you to contact them and try to get your manual.
