Specifications for air blow guns include pressure capacity and air line connection type. Pressure capacity or maximum rated pressure is rated at the air inlet and measured in pounds per square inch (psi). Many types of air line connectors are available. Quick-release connectors contain fittings that are attached internally. By contrast, push-on connectors include barbed ferrules. Air blow guns use several types of national pipe thread (NPT) connectors, most of which are inch-based and female. Important NPT measurements include threads per inch (TPI) and outside diameter (OD). 1/8” NPT connectors have 27 TPI and an OD of 0.405”. 1/4” NPT connectors have 18 TPI and an OD of 0.540”. 3/8” NPT connectors also have 18 TPI, but an OD of 0.675”. 1/2” connectors have 14 TPI and an OD of 0.840”. #10-32 NPT threads are also available. Air line connections that can swivel or pivot are suitable for applications that require versatile positioning.

When my Senco SLP 20 brad nailer is connected to air hose, air will blow-by through the exhaust. After you fire a couple of pins blow-by stops


Most problems with this gun centers around the firing valve part # Bao119 . This part must not get any oil because it will swell and begin to fail as you describe. That being said, the trigger valve does need some type of lubrication or it will become sticky causing problem that you describe. If you have been using oil in the gun, most likely inner trigger parts will be lubricated and failure is firing valve. If no oil has ever enter the gun, suspect the trigger valve. It will need to be removed from the gun and lubed with white grease or silicone lube. Good luck

Air blowing out the back of nail gun


That is just the blow off (extra air) coming from the air compressor that your nail gun didn't use.

Hope this helps

Nail gun doesn't shoot and air blowing out vent constant.


We used nail guns for years. I still own 6 guns, but they aren't used much anymore.
You have a 'blown head gasket.'
Or there is debris from the air hose that got lodged into the gun.
There is a head gasket and a trigger gasket.
Both can blow out any time from use, lack of oil, or they can stick open from debris.
You can take apart the head and clean it up and add oil to see if that solves problem.
You can order a gun re-build kit for your model and put in the parts yourself.
You can have a nail gun repair shop do the job.

Nail guns require gun oil.
If you don't use gun for a while, oil should be put into air hose opening and then left to run down into gun. More oil is better.
If you use 3-in-1 oil or some oil besides gun oil, then it will corrode the gaskets.
When storing air hose and guns, put tape over openings so they stay clean.
Before hooking air hose to a gun, you can also put a blower on hose and blow out the line first

How to use to clean my car?


Shoot the blow gun in all the tight spaces where your vacuum hose can't reach. If possible, attach a small jet pipe on the end of the gun to reach the tiniest crevices.
