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

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.

My 20 ga stanley bostich air stapler stopped firing the staple all the way in. Any ideas?


Do you have an adj pressure gauge? Take it off, you don't need it for nail guns, Only for painting. Guns run on a full tank, wide open, 120 lbs pressure. If that doesn't set your nail, either the safety is holding you off your work and not letting the staple seat or the gun needs to be rebuilt. Check the drive pin and make sure it didn't break the tip off. Sometimes I wish mine wouldn't set the nails all the way, because some materials, it goes right through. You have to hold it off manually. Also, depending on material, some guns do not have the power to drive into Oak. Only the Senco has the power to do that. we tried every gun made and found it to be the best. Got rid of all the other guns and kept a complete line of Senco guns in our shop. Hope this helps.

Is it possible to shoot yourself in the chest?


I guess it would be depending on the type of tool. Most tools have a safety mechanism that would have to be defeated or completely disabled to fire without depressing the safety and could fire freely. I would think again depending on the product that there are guidelines on the proper use and safety of the tools and as far as anyone in the house there are not kid toys and I would not let a minor use one even under supervision unless the adult knows all the functions of the tool. You can go to Stanleybostitch.com and view some of their products and manuals. I hope I answered your question
