Question about Dewalt 18V Angled Finish Nailer Kit

Open Question

I have a Dewalt DC608 18 V 2 inch brad nailer. It worked fine for a couple of weeks. Now when I try to nail, I push it down and the guide lights come on and it sounds like a stipped sound, the light blinks 5 times. I can remove the battery and replace it, and it will do the same thing. I have bought a new battery because the trouble shooter manual says the battery is weak or dead. The new battery does the same thing even after I know it has a full charge. Any ideas? Thanks

SOURCE: Dont know what nails to use on my makita brad nailer

is that a model AF505? if it is, your problem may be the gauge. make sure you use 18 gauge nails, he 16 gauge are too big and will jam in the gun.

SOURCE: DeWalt d51822 framing nailer, shoots 2 nails at once 1 in 5 times

I worked at at tool rental center while attending college and learned from the old tool masters about nails and nailers. Rental stores have many different brands of nailers to rent and customers would bring their own nails of all brands. You will notice on the case/box that your nails will /should work on many other brands however the degree or angle of the nails is not always exacly as stated on the box. You should check with protractor the exact angle of your nails and also check the exact angle of the nailer. Use straight edge on travel path of the piston and another on guide rails to check angle of the gun. You will discover that all is not as stated as in a perfect world. If the angle is off slightly, the head of the second nail will get into the path of the driver. This happens mostly with clip head because the nail heads are so close together. The full round head is spaced further apart with less jamming. If angle is off slightly, take a look at other brands of nails with protractor in hand, the angle will be different slightly or choose a slightly thicker nail. Look for the nails to fit with bottom of nail hitting the barrel first. This will move the head of the nail slightly away from the center line. Finally do not release pusher with force as this will jamb nails closer together. Good Luck!?

Hi. Get an aerosol can of a penetrating lubricant called WD-40. Apply a few squirts to the action end of the nailer. let it sit for a couple of hours and then try it again. Repeat if necessary. J.

Is there an adjustment setting for different powers? Maybe you need to increase the power that the nail is being put in with.

I have a DC608 cordless nailer that will not fire the driver the driver does not move at all but everything else seems to be functioning properly Thanks Tim


Hi,

You can go to this webpage and download the owner's manual which gives instructions: http://servicenet.dewalt.com/Products/Detail?productNumber=DC608K
You can also download a parts diagram and order parts here.

I looked through the manual and found that DeWalt's Brad Nailer does not require tools to remove jammed nails from the nose piece. I believe this is the problem with your nailer, unless it's empty. Some of these nailers will not fire if there's less than 6 nails in them.
Another feature on this nailer is the trip lock. It is a safety feature that prevents accidental firing. Any time you adjustments made to the nailer will automatically turn the trip lock to lock position. You'll find this lock on the right side, under the Dewalt label.

The instruction manual will explain all this.

Hope this helps. If it does, I would appreciate a vote. Thanks,

Handie Andie

I have difficulty with regular jams regardless of brad length. Thoughts?


Depending on type of work/wood the finer the nail, results in increased jams. Eighteen gauge and finer experience more jams than say 15 gauge. Fine gauge nails also suffer from square cut tip. I believe that if the nails were pointed (like Senco nails ) they would more likely drive true. Jaming can be decreased by selecting the correct nailer for particular work. Dimentional lumber and hardwoods tend to increase problems compared to quality plywood or non wood trim materials. If you experience jaming with any type of wood then time to look at driver for possible problem. Check driver for bent or worn tip. Driver blade can be dressed square on grinder. Some drivers have a slight angle/taper ground into tip on the side that faces the rails. This taper continues up the blade about 1/2 inch. The taper will prevent the driver from hitting the second nail. On really hard woods, try drilling a fine pilot hole to produce best results. Good luck

Paslode 350 nailer wont work , push to fire fan works for 2 seconds then light flashes from green to red


Hi,
Sounds like a battery contact problem or a bad battery..


Here is a tip that I wrote about the Paslode nailers and the problems that can come up with them.

I also have a link to the Paslode manuals which contain Paslode cleaning and troubleshooting guides.

If you need parts for your Paslode, there also is a link for a site that sells the Paslode nailer parts.

The gun will fire staples, nails do not set.


Shoots staples fine but brads jam or bend. Check that the part called "guide bar", #35 on the parts diagram isn't getting stuck in the channel of part #30.

The guide bar retracts into the channel when driving a staple and springs out of the channel to guide brads.

The guide bar can get stuck in the channel if it's bent or gummed up. (Bent is likely the result of driving a brad into an obstruction.)

The business end should look like this:

Nailer jams with 1-5/8 brads


It sound to me that the 1 5/8 brads are not 18 guage but probably 16 guage and they will not work. Double check them first before going any further. You can usually lay them next to the smaller ones that work and see the size difference, if not let me know and I will dig deeper.
