Hi in Australia just about all our professional nail guns have to modes to select when using the tool.
1. safety mode--only works when nose piece is pushed against wood.
2. contact trip--nail gun will automatically fire when nose is struck againt something.
The automatic mode is usually on coil nail guns (fires nails from a coil), but I have seen them on some framing guns like the bostitch
Obviously it is safer to use the safety mode as harder to accidentally fire a nail into you orbystanders.
The main consideration is to make sure that there is nothing in front of the nail other than timber & you always wear goggles.
cheers
Laurie

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.

SOURCE: a 1 1/4" brad nail only penetrates 1/2 inch

Hi, There should be a power adjustment on the top of the driving head. Make adjustments there, and the penetration should improve.

SOURCE: brad nail only goes 1/2" into wood. there is no

You might get better penetration if you use your other hand to press the gun down firmly onto the surface before you pull the trigger. (This will help if the gun tends to jump a little when you fire it.) Or, if the surface you are firing into might not be rigid enough (like a thin board that is not supported) - in that case you might improve the penetration by better supporting the surface you are nailing into, perhaps by placing it on the floor. On the other hand, this may simply be a case that the gun is not powerful enough to do what you want it to do. To test that theory, try it into a piece of soft wood (like a 2X4) or find a soft thick material as a first layer over the wood you are using. Perhaps you can use shorter nails - thin brads in wood don't gain much strength beyond 1/2 inch penetration anyway. The length of the brad only needs to be about 1/2 inch longer than the thickness of the first layer of material. I hope this helps, good luck Al K

Hello. Arrow does not list that model on their site any more. Here is the link to contact them, they have toll free for Canada and U.S. You should be able to request the instruction sheet from them.

Hitachi nail gun


If gun firing but nails not being driven could be one of two basic problems:
1. Nail jammed in magazine not allowing nails to move up.
Empty magazine, does follower move to top of magazine. Push gun against work piece, does fan motor start? Yes - jam in magazine or lock out bar not operating. (this would allow nail un to fire when out of nails)
2. Piston/driver not returning fully after firing, hence driver blade on top of next nail instead of behind it. This could again be caused by a jammed nail or just a nail head. Another case of not returning is the combustion chamber not making a good seal, check O rings on framer (they are steel rings on bradders) it may just need a good clean it is surprising how dirty they can get and if not cleaned a build up of dirt could break a seal. If not been cleaned for a long time worth checking piston rings, worst case scenario dirt builds up around the rings and stick fully in requiring new piston if the rings will not come out.
Nail guns work on the principle that an explosion pushes the piston driver forcing a nail into the work piece, after the explosion a vacuum is created and it is this that 'sucks' the piston/driver back up the cylinder.

NO NAIL IS COMING OUT WEN YOU PRES THE TRIKER


I presume the gun fires but no nail is ejected. A possibility is jammed nails in the magazine. Do you see a mark in your work piece of the driver blade? If yes then it is most likely jammed nails. If not could be a broken driver blade. If gun does not fire could be gas problem. (check in date, yes it does have a use by date), another cause of not firing is a broken wire particularly around trigger switch (switch is on trigger and hence the wires are flexing every time trigger is pressed). Another cause of not firing is a brass spring clip in handle assy if this breaks it stops the gun firing. Recently I have had more broken wires than anything else on these guns. Worth noting is that the Stanley Bostitch nail guns suffer the very same faults. Also note they are the same gun just different colours so you can fit Hitachi parts to the Bostitch and they are cheaper.

It won't shoot out any nails...pressure is 108psi,nailer has a few drops of oil in it,nails are placed on lower part of the slide


Are you applying downward pressure to the nail gun against the item you are attempting to nail? Many nail guns have a safety feature that requires the nail gun to be pressed firmly against the object.

Fires 2 & 3 nails every so often.


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.

Paslode nail guns won't shoot


piston is probably jammed

This happens sometimes try holding it up against a board with the trigger depressed and then inset the battery.

The goal is to try to force the firing sequence to get the piston back to the right position with corded units this is simply done by attaching the air hose with the trigger pulled this causes air to rush into the gun chamber pushing the piston back and firing a nail out.

The cause of this is a misfire or jammed nail that stopped the piston in the wrong location so air will not build in the chamber correctly.

Hope that helps

Delicate problem


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.

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.

Nail Guns Types


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.
