Whats the difference between a roofing nail gun and an ordinary nail gun ?


A roofing nail is designed to be easier to be removed, they have a smooth shank and wide head that hold down shingles. A siding nail has a ring shank. A roofing nailer is used to quickly pin down shingles across a roof, the depth at which they are drive in is generally shallower than a siding nail.
You can read a little more about roofing nailers here Best Roofing Nailer Shooting From the Hip Woodworking Tool Guide.

Bostich RN-46 seems to be over sinking the nails even went set to low depth


Adjust the air pressure on the regulator to about 90 lbs. or lower. maybe higher than 90 but that should help you set the depth.

New nailer double firing and jaming


Some trigger valves (tva6) are sensitive (defective?) however there are some things you can try to change how the gun acts. I have noticed that the brand of oil has an effect on the orings. Some brands will swell the orings, I like Paslode nail gun oil. Do not wash the gun with gasoline or wd40. Use diesel. Change the nail depth setting one position. Lowering the air pressure will make a difference. I find that most operators use too much pressure. A stronger safety spring under the trigger will separate the trigger and firing pin quicker. Finally you could use single fire trigger. Good luck

How can i make my hitachi roof nailer shoot faster


I have seen roofers that can make the gun sound like machine gun. What they do is fine tune the adjustment on the safety foot up or down and slide the gun against the roofing material while bouncing the gun slightly instead of lifting the gun off the work while pulling the trigger. The safety foot should be pushed against work while sliding the gun from one side to the shingle to the other. The firing takes place when the gun is push down slightly, so that means that the adjustment has to be so the gun does not fire until you press down the final 1/16 to an inch or so. This action wears out the nose however due to rubbing against the shingle. One must balance the faster wear of the nose against greater productivity.

How do i control the depth the nail shoots in a bostitch coil nailer


The bostitch nailer pictured along along with your question is a RN46 roofing coil nailer. It has a dial on the front of the nose for adjusting depth. Some older nailers (roofing nailers) do no have a means of adjusting so were set at the factory for best performance. The question of depth usually comes up when lower bumper fails and the nail is driven too deep. Easy test. Remove nails and find a very soft piece of wood. Dry fire the gun against soft wood and measure how deep the driver is entering the wood. Harder test. Remove the head and use any handy tool to push driver down to bottom. Measure how far the driver extends past nose (should be about 1/8 to 3/16). If more, replace the lower bumper. Good luck

Surface area =300 square feet 25 year old ash


Ash fault? I think you mean "asphalt" but that's OK. You haven't given enough information to solve the problem, but here's what you need to do.

You know the area of the roof is 300 square feet (sq ft). You should know the area of each asphalt shingle, although that's the information you didn't give. When you know that figure, the calculation is very simple:

number of shingles needed = area of roof / area of one shingle

I don't know if this is a class problem, or if you really have a roofing job. Don't forget that on a real roof, the shingles overlap. If you do the calculation, the number you get is right only if you lay the shingles edge-to-edge. A real-world roof would need probably twice that number. Shingles come packed in bundles, and they usually tell you the area they cover. (By the way, 100 square feet is termed a "square".)

My hitachi nv45ab double fires


Your nailer has two adjustments that could be the problem. One is just up from the door hinge. You will see a thumb wheel. Turn the wheel till the safety can move all the way up. Next adjust the screw below the trigger plunger by backing off the locknut and turning the 5mm bolt up or down a few turns into a different position. This is the depth adjuster. Most operators bump fire this nailer. Good luck

How do you set the depth on a Bostitch N57c coil nailer besides lowering the air pressure


Hello. The only way to set the depth is to lower or raise the air pressure. The rn175, however does have a depth setting feature which you may find useful for your app. http://www.protoolreviews.com/reviews/air-tools/bosch-roofing-nailer-rn175

Can i use any brand coil nailes in my nv 45ab2 coil nailer


Yes. Roofing nailers all use about the same size and spacing on coil nails. You will find that Harbor Freight is about 1/2 the price of Home Depot or Lowes for those nails.
