Question about Stanley Tools & Hardware - Others

My Stanley Bostitch SB-1850BN brad nailer will not sink the brad. It leaves it about an eighth of an inch above the surface. Adjusting the head using the adjustment thumbwheel does not help. Any suggestions? Thanks.

You may have a broken tip or bent driver. Remove tha nails from gun and dry fire into a piece of wood. You should see a nice little indention. If you continue to hold the trigger and the nailer against wood after firing, the driver will stay in the lower position for examination. Just fire into wood and keep gun against wood while holding trigger and lean gun to side untill you see the tip. If you see broken tip or no tip order repair kit that includes driver, or driver alone from www.bostitch.com or ebay. Good luck

How do I clear a jam?


Hi Gary:
SAFETY FIRST! Disconnect from air supply.
Pull trigger to make sure not "loaded"
- Here's what I would do.
1) Open magazine and remove stick of remaining nails
2) Try to remove jammed nail with pliers, pointy tool, etc.
3) Use allen wrenches to dis-mantle head until everything comes apart and jammed nail falls out.
4) re-assemble, cleaning and oiling at the same time.
Once done, re-connect to air supply and test.
Hint. A 2 inch nail can take some effort to penetrate, especially a knot in hardwood. Make sure you are using adequate pressure; that is the high end of the recommended pressure.
Cheers.

At the end where you attach the air hose is the nailer imprinted with the words "add oil"? If so; add a few drops of oil designed for air nailers.
Also check to make sure no nails are stuck in the tip of the nailer and the return mechanism is reset.

Driver stays out after firing


You probably have a worn air seal. Or perhaps some pneumatic tool oil might do the trick. A few drops in the air outlet then bumb some nails into a piece of wood.

New model sb-1850bn will not operate at all. Oiled it lightly before trying to use. Air comes out around trigger.


If the air is coming out of the trigger when you try to drive a nail, most likely the driver is broken.
Bostitch nailer have a 7 year warranty on them so, take it to a Bostitch service center and have it repaired there.

I ran into this problem many times. Don`t use the Bostitch brand nails. Use the generic or other name brand. You`ll notice the generic one`s heads are just a little bigger and the driver blade won`t run down the side of the nail!

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 homedepot.com
