SOURCE: bostich gun problem

If the piston/driver is broken, the gun will fire however nailing will not take place because the piston will jam in the cylinder. Sometimes the cylinder will also crack when the driver goes. If the piston is not broken but stays down, then check the cylinder check valve, worn lower bumper, bent driver or cracked cylinder. 18 guage nailer has a very thin driver which will easily bend or break. Parts however are not expensive.

SOURCE: Mastercraft Brad nailer piston always fires

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.

My makita an451 roof nailer keeps shooting 2 nails I've tried 2 different brands of nails


Nailers that use strips of nails (one nail directly behind the other) will sometimes drive two nails at once and is caused by damage to the driver. The nails are so close together that the driver will hit the first and part of the second nail head. Coil nailers, as your an451, use nails seperated by welded wire making it very difficult the the driver to hit the second nail. Usually when a coil nailer shoots two nails, it is acutally the trigger valve that acutates twice (two very rapid fires). Two very rapid fires is caused by faulty trigger valve. I have seen a roofing coil nailer fire one nail and a second nail drops out of the gun. Caused by weak / malfunction of nail feeder or wire used to weld nails together is too thick.

Porter Cable FN250c wont shoot with every trigger pull. sometimes it shoots correctly (10% of the time), other times it just pops (no nail) and other times it shoots two nails at once. Also when it...


Worn trigger and or worn firing valve. Remove the trigger and look for wear on contact surfaces (worn pin that holds trigger, worn inner lever inside trigger, worn or loose firing pin in valve ). Easy test for worn trigger. Remove the nails, remove trigger, fire the gun against wood with finger to test for proper action. If it works better without trigger, consider replacing trigger with new (I would also order the oring repair kit that includes the firing valve )

My N88rh shoots two nails at a time


N88rh uses a full round head plastic collated nails which are spaced apart enough that the driver cannot hit two nails at once. If your are using other nails that fit into your magazine that are closer together you may in fact drive two nails at once. If, however you are using the correct nail and the nailer shoots twice, then you probable have a very sensitive firing valve. You could change the TVA6 valve or change the actual trigger. To overcome this problem of double firing and you do not want to try changing the firing valve, you need to change the trigger to sequential type instead of bump fire type. This trigger is usually white and will only permit one nail to be fired. Check www.toolpartsdirect.com or bostitch.com for parts. Good holiday

Not sure how to load nails into magazine


Generally two reasons for nails not to make contact with driver. Make sure that the driver is returning to top of cylinder. If it stays in the path of the nail feeder, the nail cannot slide into position. Second, nails are not the right type or gauge for gun. Some nails even if they are the right gauge have a large head not allowing the strip to enter into chamber. Remove air hose from gun, check that piston is all the way up, then slide nails into chamber and see if they go all the way in easily with-out having to push. You should see the first nail in place from bottom where nail shoots out. The angle of the nail is very important. most pin nailers are 0 degree (not angled), but others have an angle. The gun should be labeled as to angle of nail. Hold a strip of nails against the outside of the magazine and see is the first nail is in line with the driver path. Good luck and post again if you have other question.

Porter cable fc350a frame nailer shoots just air


Could be a couple things, first are you using the right nails in the gun e.g. collation and degree. Second do the nails move freely in the magazine and how is the pusher spring on the nail does it have enough pressure. Then I would unplug from air remove all the nails andjust tap the nose on a piece of wood and does the driver drop? If so the piston Oring is worn and needs replaced, but if you do that I would recommend replacing all the rubber. Let me know and I would need the exact model number to come up with parts.
