Check that the driver is returning all the way to top of the cylinder. Driver will not return to top when lower bumper is cracked, driver is bent, or piston oring is too loose/tight or low air pressure to gun. Also check that the two inch nail is the same angle as the three in. Place the nails on the outside of the rails with the heads aligned with the rail. The first nail should align with the path of the driver. If the head of the first nail is angled back away from the path of the driver, will miss fire.

Nailer drives nails too deep


n80 coil nailer is a very powerful nailer used for hard wood. If the driver is setting nails too deep, adjust safety foot to the lowest level. Install safety foot no-mar boot to lift the gun even higher. If still too deep, most likely the lower bumper inside the gun is worn-out or cracked. Easy test. Remove nails and connect air supply. With trigger depressed, push and hold the gun against work (I use an old rubber hose tightly coiled up). This will fire the gun but keep the driver down allowing you to examine the tip of the driver. The driver should extend out past the nose less than quarter inch. If the driver is extending too far, most likely bumper is worn out. If a large quantity of air is leaking out the nose of gun during the test, indication that lower bumper is cracked. Good luck.

My 601 won't shoot any spikes it just leaves a 1/4 '' indent were nail should be?


If you're getting an indent in the wood from the driver, the gun is working properly. If the gun isn't driving fasteners/nails it's because the nail isn't under the driver when it's activated. Several things could cause this: Having the wrong angle nails in your gun. There is something in the feed path of the nails preventing them from feeding fully into the nose piece. The feed shoe is jambed or feed shoe spring is broken.

My Bostitch N60 will not drive the nailes all the way. What can be the problem?


Usually, the driver extends past the nose of the gun about 1/4 inch. Easy test. Remove nails and dry fire the gun into very soft wood to make sure that the driver is not missing the tip. If good indention is made into the wood then suspect worn piston oring. Easy test for worn piston oring. With nails removed, point the nose of the gun up then down again. If the driver moves within the cylinder, replace piston oring. This gun needs about 90 to 100psi. If too much hose is used, pressure will drop. Check pressure at the hose by making a tester using a male quick fitting installed on a pressure gauge. Good luck

FR350 won't shoot nails


Normally I would say you aren't using enough air pressure because somewhere around 80psi (every tool is different) will not be enough to fully retract the driver. At 110 you are fine so that is not the case. I doubt it is broken because a broken driver will still retract unless it broke near the piston. My guess is it needs the o-rings replaced but you can pull the top head and pull the driver out first to make sure. Parts and breakdowns can be found here as DeWalt owns Porter Cable.

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

Hitachi nr83aa shoots out nail and it bends last inch of nail over


One problem may be your air pressure at the gun. It should be between 90 and 100 psi to fully drive the nail fast enough to prevent nails being left high in the work or bent over. Bent nails can also happen if you are driving nails into very hardwood or hit a knot in softer woods but not usually with framing nailers. Another thing to look for is a rounded off driver that is slipping off the head of the nail before it is fully driven into the work. The tip of the driver should be round (some have a crescent moon shape) but square to the sides. If you need a new driver the part number is 878-630, shop the web for one of these, they run beteween $80 and $100 plus shipping.

Gun will not shoot nails completely;no matter what wood,thickness,etc.they drive all but 1/2"


May be due to broken tip. Easy to check. Remove nails and leave door open. With door open, lightly tap the nose of the gun against coiled rubber hose or soft wood. The driver should stay at top position. If driver falls to bottom of the cylinder, replace piston oring. Now press nose of the gun against old coiled up air hose or soft wood and squeeze and hold trigger. The gun will fire and the driver should stay in the down position untill you release the trigger (if not single fire trigger, if single fire trigger remove trigger and press the trigger pin with finger). While the driver is down, make sure that the tip extends past the nose about 1/4 inch (if air leaks past the nose in this position, replace lower bumper). If the driver does not extend past the nose, replace driver. Good luck

I have a PC nailer (Finish) It is misfiring? was working fine. Now it does not NAIL although I can see the indentation on the wood ...help!!!!


Check the magazine area near the head for a jammed nail or other feed obstruction. It sounds like the driver is hitting the wood ok. Did you change nails (brand, type, or size) when this occurred? Make sure the magazine feed spring is ok.

When the 2in 18 gauge nail enters the wood it turns in the wood and comes out the side of the wood,


Hi,
That is actually the nail failing. If you try shooting any 2in. 18ga. nail into something hard like Maple or even red oak, the nail will bend. It will typically follow the grain. So Go to at least a 16 ga. nail for hardwoods.

Mastercraft Brad nailer piston always fires damaging finish but nail gets randomly shot. Thought it was a indent before nail shot to indent nail since it mostley shoots nails after second shot but lately...


The dial on the top of the gun is most likely the depth adjustment for the nails, this should solve the driver damaging the work piece. Make sure the nails are the correct guage for the nailer you have.
