A brad nailer in good working order, set to the deepest setting and using 125psi should almost shoot the brad through the wood. If you have been oiling the gun properly (three to four drops at he beginning of your work session and again in the afternoon if under constant use) then you probably have some worn o-rings inside the gun. Porter Cable makes a driver maintenance kit (PN1001 60062) for your gun that will make it work like new.

16 ga nails dont set flush to wood.


Assuming that the nail head not setting in and adjusting depth control does not remedy. Usually occurs when the tip breaks off. Remove the head and pull out the driver to examine tip. If tip broken or bent, replace with new or try to adjust as needed. If about 1/16 of tip broken, reshape the driver so that the tip is just slightly wider than nail head, taper the lower 1/4 inch on the side of the driver that faces the nails so that the driver will only strike one nail and reduce (shave) the size of the lower bumper so that the driver will extend out same amount that you need due to broken tip(only works if 1/16 -1/8 broke off).

Bn125a nailer not sinking nails all the way


The depth to which a fastener is driven is controlled by the depth adjustment

knob (A) Fig. 19 below. The depth of drive is factory adjusted to a nomimal setting.

Test fire a fastener and check depth. If

a change is desired, rotate the

adjustment knob (A) Fig. 19: the

adjustment knob has detents every 1/4

turn. Rotate the knob clockwise (see

Fig. 19), to increase the depth of drive,

rotate the knob counterclockwise to

decrease the depth of drive. Test fire

another fastener and check depth.

Repeat as necessary to achieve

desired results. The amount of air pressure required will vary depending on the

size of the fastener and the material being fastened. Experiment with the air

pressure setting to determine the lowest setting that will consistently perform

the job at hand. Air pressure in excess of that required can cause premature
wear and/or damage to the tool.

How do I adjust the depth of the brad nail on the porter cable BN 125A brad nailer


Hello. To adjust the depth of the nail you have to increase or decrease the air pressure from the compressor. Look at the compressor and you will see a knob or dial that you can turn to increase or decrease the air pressure. Do this adjustment in small increments testing the nailer by driving nails into a scrap of the same material you will be driving the nails into on the actual job. Increasing the pressure will drive the nail deeper and decreasing the pressure will drive the nail less deep. Joe

Air is escaping from the top of the bn125a brad nailer. It won't fire nails.


it sounds like you have a damaged o ring/seal that requires maintenance. You can go to Dewaltservicenet.com and download a breakdown for this tool and also order parts for it. When reinstalling new o rings don't forget to put a little bit of grease on them so they don't roll or pinch. Let me know if you need more help

Porter Cable BN125A won't set nails below surface


Not sure about the seal, but I do know the pressure has to stay up for this nailer to be effective. Try oiling the gun to free up the mechanics and don't use old nails.
