Question about Air Tools & Compressors
Not all nailers have the ability to bump-fire. It depends on the type of trigger and the firing valve that the trigger contacts. Remove gun from air supply and remove the nails (for safety). Take a close look at the trigger itself looking for a bump fire setting. It will have a rotary dial to select single or repeat fire. If no setting, look at how the safety foot contacts the trigger's inner trip lever (the trip lever inside the trigger is what actually contacts the firing valve pin). With trigger pressed in, push the safety foot in and notice if the safety contacts the inner trigger lever. On bump fire trigger, the safety foot mech. will push up on the inner lever each time that you press in safety (and you will see that the inner lever will depress the firing pin). On single fire trigger, with trigger pressed, when you push on safety foot, the mech. will not contact inner trigger lever because the lever is too short to allow safety to make contact with it. On single fire triggers, the inner lever can make contact with safety only when trigger is in the resting position. With trigger released, depress safety and notice that safety contacts inner trigger liver and will remain in contact untill you press the trigger at which time the inner lever will depress the firing pin then fall away from safety. If you are a tinker-er, you can make adjustment to inner lever so that it will make constant contact (the rotary dial on triggers that are made to give you a choice of bump or single actually make the inner lever longer or shorter ). If you make any adjustments, make various and numerous tests with-out nails to make sure that it will not fire accidently.
