I would use screws. If you use screws they will not work loose causing squeeky floors. You could use a regular cordless drill, but a cordless screw gun is much faster and will hold up better. Be sure you hit the joists, and not just the current flooring

How to unjam a paslode f350s nailgun


I use an old driver blade of same model (or close fit). However I grind the back side of the old driver to allow for the metal wedged in the nose. Hold old driver steady with vicegrips. You will need to use large brass or copper hammer (prevent metal splinter ) and strike direct blow so not to break anything (miss and hit gun). Remove the head and cylinder so that you can place the body of the gun against plywood. Place the plywood on concrete floor or solid workbench. May take several hard blows. If you try to use too soft metal to drive down the stuck blade, you risk wedging more metal and making repair impossible for service center. Good luck with your repair.

Can the carriage on a dewalt dc618 nailgun be adjusted


The only adjustment on nail guns is for the nail drive depth, the magazine is hard mounted to the nose piece. If you are having problems with the nail clips feeding, first make sure the entire feed path is clear of any nails, parts of nails or other foreign things. Then make sure the nails you are using are fully compatable with your nailgun. Your gun needs 16 guage nails set at a 20-degree angle no shorted than 1 1/4" and no longer than 2 1/2" long. Any deviation from those requirements will only give you a headache worse than what you have now.

Ive had the same problem where it was putting divits you could see from the staples, we ended up changing out the flooring completely. Only thing besides trying diff psi's to get it perfect and different length staples/different heads on staples(nails) , maybe try staple gun. Keep trying every woods different, odd that it started half way through job.. odd.

The staples are not going deep enough into our hardwood. We tried a different nailer as well, and the cleats wouldn't work either. Tried both 1 1/2" and 2" staples and cleats. We're installing 3/4 inch oak...


The working pressure of this tool is 85 - 90 PSI max. Do not over power it or you risk O-ring breakage. These guns are adjustable for floor thickness. The adjustment is simply by adding and removing shims on the floor contact part of the tool. For 3/4" the pad should be 5/16" thick without shims

Nailgun does not work, air is


Check to see if a nail is jambed part way in the chamber outlet, make sure to take air hose off before checking. You also may want to add some air gun oil to the inlet if you havnt done it in a while

Nail gun- double feed


Nail guns either have a switch or a seperate trigger assembly for two options - automatic, or 'bump' fire, and sequential fire. Sequential firing may be best for you since the nose must be fully depressed and the trigger pulled for each nail.

If you're stuck with bump firing, practice your technique. Double fires often occur when the workpiece bounces back into the nose of the gun; learn to 'bounce' the gun off the material to avoid this second contact.

If you're getting double fires in sequential mode, the problem could be more serious. I keep a can of aerosol silicone lubricant on hand to clean and lubricate the feed mechanism and magazine. Make sure your tool is clean and lubricated before each use, including the 3-5 drops on the air coupling.

Check that your air pressure is not set too high. Overdriving nails reduces their effectiveness and can cause tool malfunction.

This problem could also be caused by worn out O-rings or other parts within the tool. If you're not comfortable servicing the tool yourself, take it in for repair/maintenance work.

Another important thing to remember: With tools like this, you get what you pay for. A cheap nailgun will never function as well as a quality nailgun.

Firing pin not retracting far enough to allow nails forward


Yes,this is a common "mis fire" by Pasilode. I own the 16p Framer and the Angle nailer and I never get it from the Framer but I do get it seldom from Trim Gun,nothing you can do ,its just a misfire.

Roof Decking for Galveston County Texas


http://www.informationdestination.cengage.com/ReferenceContent/Roofing/Plywood%20Roof%20Decking.pdf

If you have a plywood roof deck, make sure that you have at least 15/32" (or ½") plywood thickness if the rafters are set at sixteen inches (16") on center. If your rafters are twenty-four inches (24") on center, it is recommended that your plywood is at least 5/8" inches thick. All plywood should be Exposure 1 Rated plywood and be rated for structural use by the APA-The Engineered Wood Association. This is indicated by a stamp on the plywood that states "32/16" rated. What this means is that particular board is rated for sub-flooring where the floor joists are 16" on center and for roof decking where the rafter or roof joists are 32" on center. The APA recommends a 1/8" gap be left between adjacent panels of plywood/OSB.
