Most likely the piston (#15) has partially unthreaded from the piston stem (#17) - this requires a complete teardown to rectify. Sometimes it is simply because use has caused it to loosen - it can also be because the piston has stripped.
Also check your bumper - if it is worn, or in pieces the driver will overdrive.

SOURCE: bostich gun problem

If the piston/driver is broken, the gun will fire however nailing will not take place because the piston will jam in the cylinder. Sometimes the cylinder will also crack when the driver goes. If the piston is not broken but stays down, then check the cylinder check valve, worn lower bumper, bent driver or cracked cylinder. 18 guage nailer has a very thin driver which will easily bend or break. Parts however are not expensive.

SOURCE: the staples don't go in far enough

Either the pioston backed off piston stem or the blade is broken. remove 4 bolts holding shoe to yellow body. remove magazine and shoe. remove yellow bumper inside gun. Pull piston down and inspect blade. if not broken see if piston backed off stem. if so gun must be rebuilt and part # BC347 must be replaced. visit www.bostitch.com and download schematic and where parts can be obtained.

SOURCE: 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

How to adjust depth on bostich mk111fs


There is no depth adjustment on this tool -
If the staples are going too deep - most likely the piston (#17) has threaded off the driver inside the tool, you have a broken piston bumper (#62) inside, or the teflon foot pad (#56) on the bottom of the tool is the wrong thickness for the flooring you are using.
If the staples are not driving far enough - most likely you have a broken / chipped driver blade (#21) or the teflon foot pad (#56) on the bottom of the tool is the wrong thickness for the flooring you are using.

My paslode air framing nailer model 5350-90s is loosing air out of the trigger valve when I press on the trigger and the nail does not fire. What is the problem ?


Sounds like a bad O ring. There are rebuild kits you can get with a new set of O rings. Or you can have it done for about $30-50.

What part do I need to remove to make a bostich MIIIFS floor stapler to shoot 2 inch staples


You shouldn't have to do anything to the MIIIFS flooring stapler to shoot 2" staples. It is designed to shoot 1 1/2" to 2" staples right out of the box. If your stapler won't feed 2" staples, check the magazine all the way up to the power head for any foreign material that may hold up your staples.

My bostich flooring staler wont fully drive every staple and it is getting wors....it is not leaking air


Your compressor needs to be checked first. There is an air pressure regulator on most machines - be sure all is in working order. It might help to be sure you're playing any lubricants in the stapler configuration as well.

I am using this product for a hardwood floor. I cannot seem to get the staples driven in far enough. I'm using 2" 15 gauge staples and have oiled and set the regulator correctly


the wood may be to hard for the gun to drive the stapel right in or you may just have a worn out gun,,turn the regulater up some more to increase the guns power a little more it should hit the stapels a bit harder then,,,some wood is harder than others,,dont just go by what the book sayes! if it works,,,use your setting not what the book sayes, only back it off a bit if it berrys the stapel a foot beep in the wood!!!

I AM HAVING TROUBLE OUT OF MY BOSTITCH MIIIFS FLOOR NAILER


D Farley,
I repair these nailers all the time. Anytime the nail or staple is bending you have 2 causes. Either the stapler has a broken blade, the magazine is loose on the foot gate, or you are shooting into plywood over concrete. that is allowing the staple to hit the cement subfloor. Use 11 /2" staples on 3/4" wood floor over 3/4" plywood when over concrete.
