Just a few drops of oil twice a day if used all day. Drop oil down quick connect. Too much oil is not good. You can store gun with quick connect pointing down to spill out access. Easy to tell which nailers do not use/use oil. Stamped on the back of the gun neer quick fitting, will be (oil or oil here). I use nail gun oil from Lowes, bostitch or paslode brand.

Cn-325a leaking oil

Dont worry about oil coming out of the nailer. Just start using a little less oil every day untill it stops coming out (does not need much few drops). You could also just hang up the nailer with the air inlet point down so that the oil and water can run out over nite. I guess that too much oil is better than using it too dry except that oil gets on work. If you are adding lots of oil because it works better, then time for oring kit. Good luck

Hyhundai air nailer where do I put the oil

The oil goes in where the air hose connects on all air nailers/staplers. Put in a decent amount, not just a couple drops. If you over oil it then the excess will mist out of the exhaust when the tool is fired.

I have an Airco ACBN1550A Brad Nailer Kit. The oil is now getting low. How do you add oil. Set the nailer on end, remove oil sight glass and add oil?????? Ron

Hi Ron,

Just drop a few drops of pneumatic oil in the male adapter/connector with it upside down. Don't put too much in.

Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate your vote. Thanks,

My nail gun will not fire a nail. Do I need to oil it or something?

Hello, W/D here.

Here's a couple of things to do or check:
1. Put a couple of drops of a light oil in the nailer with the trigger depressed, and the gun disconnected from the hose. Set it to the side for now, with the air inlet facing up.
2. Check the compressor outlet pressures. The gauge nearest the tank is the air pressure on the tank. The gauge closest to to the hose is the tool supply pressure. Between the gauges id the regulator, where you can increase or decrease the pressure to the tool.
3. Check your required air pressure for your nailer, and make sure that your regulator is supplying at least that much to operate the nailer.
4. Connect the nailer to the hose, Spray the underside of the nailer head (the slide assembly where the nails are driven) and try to drive several nails into scrap wood.
5. If the nailer operates properly, all's well. If it still fails to operate, place a few more drops into the air inlet (while holding the trigger down) and wait a few minutes, then try the gun again.
There are other things that can be done, but oiling the nailer should get you going. BTW, you should oil the nailer before each use, and when you put it away.
Best regards, --W/D--

Nain plunger does not retract

Sounds like you haven't been oiling it. Or maybe oiling too much.

Some of those finish nailers don't need oil. If you've been oiling one of those, it's probably all gummed up.

I own a hitachi nr90ac3 framing nailer and i

Oil leaking out of the nailer anywhere is just an indication that too much oil is being introduced. A good solution would be to reduce the amount of drops until no more leaks out or use an in line oiler at the gun. An oiler costs under ten dollars and feeds in oil vapor as you use air. Store / hang your nailer with the air inlet down at night to drain out access oil. Do not worry too much about the leaking though, I think that a bit too much oil is better than a lack of oil. Good luck.

How do you oil a nailer?

first off some nail guns do not need to be oiled, but the gun you have listed does need to be oiled you just drip a few drops of oil in the hole where the air hose connects to the gun, but make sure that you are useing the right oil make sure it is pneumatic oil for air nailers. the gun should have came with some oil if it was bought new if not you can get the oil at Lowes, Home Depot, or any other home improvement store
