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

Adjust nail depth 350 mag framing nailer


To adjust the depth of the nail on the coil 350, refer to the parts list listed below.

The safety foot, refrence # 430 or part # 904930 has a slot head bolt. Back off the bolt and move the safety foot down or up and retighten. If however the adjustment will not move enough to keep the driver from setting the nail too deep, then suspect that the bumper, refrence # 130 or part # 897337 has failed and is allowing the driver to travel down the cylinder further than normal. Easy fix. Remove the head and pull out the cylinder and driver to change the bumper. Good luck

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.

I have a Porter Cable brad nailer BN125A, at 125 PSI and depth adjustement turned to the deepest drive setting, the brad does not set flush with the surface. Problem?


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.

I have two Porter Cable pneumatic nailers, one a finish and one a brad. Both of them have suddenly quit working. The triggers are loose and not engaged to anything. Somehow the mechanism is not rebounding...


the triggers are held in place in the handle with two roll pins. the trigger itself operates off a hinged paddle inside the trigger. this paddle won't operate unless the safety is depressed. both safeties have a return spring. if yours are missing nothing will work. go to porter cable parts site and purchase the correct parts

Porter Cable 18 ga Brad nailer - BN200 Will not reload


Strip and clean the whole diaphragm and spring arrangement. Also check whether a bad nail hasn't damaged the piston guide and caused it to jam when on return stroke.

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.
