Re: Nail Guns costs
A good-quality starter set, including both a compressor and a small nail gun, can be bought for around 200 US dollars (USD). More sophisticated models can reach 1000 USD or more. Optional features such as a hard-shell case, safety trigger, and depth adjustment can drive the price even higher. For one-time jobs, a nail gun can also be rented at hardware stores and home repair centers.

I've repaired many nail guns and I can tell you the Stanley Bostitch N60FN uses 15 guage nails from 1 1/4" to 2 1/2" long in the FN1500 series of Bostitch nails. Nowhere does SB or any of their aftermarket dealers list what the angle of the nails is. I do know most of the SB nail guns that come through for repairs are because of damage to them from using other than SB series nails.
<p><b><i>Paslode cordless nailers</i></b> are a very common tool used by many professionals and do it yourselfers. These <b>nail guns are a great tool</b> when they work correctly, but can drive you nuts when they do not work as they should. When answering problems that people have on <a href="http://www.fixya.com/"><b>www.Fixya.com</b></a> I come across many questions about these nail guns and why they do not work.<br />
<p>If you are having problems with your <b>Paslode nail gun</b> the first thing you need to do is get the <b>Paslode manual</b> out of the box and checkout how to <b>clean the nail gun</b>. One of the most common causes for these <b>nail guns to have problems</b> is because of a<b> lack of maintenance</b>. If you do not have the <b>manual for your Paslode nailer</b> you can download one here. <a href="http://www.paslode.com/owners-manuals.html">www.paslode.com/owners-manuals.html</a><br />
<p>They have all of the current models and also <b>discontinued model Paslode manuals</b> there.<br />
<p>The manual will also contain <b>troubleshooting information</b> also. The <b>troubleshooting guide</b> can often help you to find the problem with your tool. Do not do the common man thing and be too proud to <b>get out the directions and READ them.</b> There are many tips and helps contained in them that will save you a ton of aggravation later.<br />
<p>Now, there are a few things that I have found out through my experiences with this nail gun that are not in the manual. <br />
<p>First, When the manual tells you that the tool needs to be <b>cleaned and lubed regularly</b> it means that you NEED to do that. Most problems are because of a<b> lack of cleaning and lubing the tool</b>.<br />
<p>Besides that, <b>gas cylinders</b> are a problem sometimes even if they are new. If you just replaced the gas cylinder and the <b>nail gun will not work</b>, try another one. Also, sometimes the end that goes on the gas cylinders will not snap on correctly or completely. You sometimes can still get the cylinder into the gun but it will not work because the top is not attached completely or correctly.<br />
<p>Check that the <b>nails do not get jammed in the magazine</b> and then not push up to the front of the gun. No nails, no work. Paper from the nails can sometimes cause them to bind up and not slide front. Make sure to always use nails that are only for the<b> Paslode nail gun</b>.<br />
<p>The firing pin can also be a problem. The <b>firing pin will bend</b> sometimes, but usually because of lack of the right nails or maintenance. Another problem that can happen is that the<b> o-rings around the firing pin</b> will break or crack. When this happens the gun may not fire or the pin will not return after it shoots a nail. If you are having these problems then check the o-rings both top and mid-pin to make sure they are in good shape. If they are chipped or cracked in anyway the gun will not work correctly.<br />
<p>The <b>battery contacts</b> on these nailers are also a problem. They can get dirt and dust in them or become bent. If they fail to make good contact they can cause the gun to have all types of problems. If you are having unexplained problems then<b> check the contacts of both the battery</b> and the gun. You can clean them with a soft cloth or sometimes with a pencil eraser.<br />
<p>The last but least likely problem is the<b> internal wiring in the nail gun</b>. Because of the violent nature of the gun firing the wiring takes a beating inside the nail gun.<b> Every time the gun fires</b> the vibration can cause the wires to move just a bit and eventually a wire can work loose. If all other things check out then look for wires that do not go anywhere. If there is a wire floating around that has no home then you have found your problem. After adjusting the end of the wire so it is tighter, reconnect the wire and you will be working again.<br />
<p>As you can see there are many things that can go wrong with these nail guns. Because of this there also are many things that you can find online that will help you. <b>E-how.com</b> has some tips that will help. <b>You-tube</b> also has some videos that will show you how to clean and troubleshoot these nail guns. Doing a simple online search will give you many places that can help you and also give you sites from which to buy parts if needed.<br />
<p>If you need parts for your nail gun, here is a good place to get those parts.<br />

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
Most all nail guns can be converted to single fire, however, usually parts must be changed. Some brands have two positions on the trigger, others have a button position near the trigger to accomplish same. Check with dealer or email your gun model # and I will explain your to fix. For now you can replace the spring on the safety with one slightly stiffer. Also try nailing with trigger depressed and quickly bump the gun to fire, this method usually works better than placing the gun in position then firing. Good luck with your repair.
There could be a bunch of different problems with a nail gun that does this. First and foremost check to make sure you are using the correct angle,diameter, and head nails for the gun you are using. Sometimes this can cause hangups and not allow the driver to retract. After checking this I would let someone who has worked on nail guns before take a look at it. There could be many different causes, too many to list here. Good luck.
For every nail that a normal human with a hammer could hand drive on his best day, a pneumatic nailer would drive and set twelve! That is no exaggeration. Although there is no need to go this fast, a reasonable speed would allow you to be 400 to 800 percent more productive. Nailing large subfloors and roof decks is a breeze. Hours worth of work becomes minutes.
Yes, because there is less risk of splitting the wood grain when using a nail gun than when using a hammer, nail guns are especially useful in delicate projects such as the application of indoor trimming. A nail gun sets the nail in one motion, reducing the chance of slips and bumps that can ruin delicate woods. Most models also include a rubber safety nose to protect the wood from friction.
Professional-grade varieties are automatic, and fire a nail directly upon pulling the trigger. A semi-automatic nail gun is more appropriate for beginners, since it requires a two step process: pull the trigger and then tap the barrel against the wood. This safety feature protects the user from accidentally firing a nail gun and injuring himself or others.
The real different between nail gun's models are the sort of power supply they use. A nail gun can be powered by compressed air, electricity or batteries, or electromagnetism. Some small guns are powered by butane, a fuel that causes a small explosive charge to drive the nail into the wood. The most common type of nail gun is the pneumatic nailer, which works with compressed air.
