Although safer than using a naked-flame blowlamp, care is still required when using a heat gun. Specific point are: * Because of the power of these tools (up to 2000W), when an extension lead is necessary, only use a lead rated at 10 amp or greater and always completely unwind the lead. * Never obstruct or cover the air inlet grills. If the air flow is reduced the heat gun will overheat and possible catch fire. * Never operate the heat gun with the outlet nozzle hard up against a surface, this will reduce the air and can have the same effect as obstructing the air inlet grills, * Do not use a heat gun near inflammable materials. * Always switch the tool off before putting it down on any surface. * Allow the tool to cool before storing it. * Do not place the nozzle next to anything whilst it is hot. * Never touch the hot metal nozzle with clothing or skin. * Do not use for stripping lead-based paints. * Do not allow any paint to stick to the nozzle - and if some paint does stick, allow the gun to cool down and remove the paint. * Do not look down the nozzle while the gun is turned on. * Do not insert anything down the nozzle with the gun.

I have an older gun can't read any specs the lables are worn off, the guns safety plunger is sticking allowing for free fire of the gun. most of my other guns have a step plunger with the spring r


To find the model number, look on ebay for hitachi framers and hopefully you will find one listed that looks like yours. If no joy, take the gun to your local fastener/nailgun dealer for parts. The dealer most likely has box full of used parts for your gun. I have seen many older nailers with bent safety foot that caused the plunger to stick in the engaged position. Some nailers have the safety return spring incorporated within the trigger plunger /valve area and still others that have the spring hidden under a guard on one side of the nailer (guard part # 883493). Look under the main body of the nailer for an indention where one side of the safety spring fits into (less than 1/2 inch in diameter) ; directly below the indention will be a point on the safety foot to catch the other side of the spring. Good luck

Safety


Never let a youngster play with the staple guns. Even the manual ones eject staples with a great deal of force. If something is strong enough o enter solid wood, it is too dangerous for kids. Keep these locked up or in some safe place away from the kids. Keep the safety latch on at all times when you aren’t using it. This will prevent accidents but remember not all staple guns have this feature so you may want to look into finding one that does if you have children around. Of course, you don’t point the gun at anyone else and you keep your fingers out of the way of the staples. With a little common sense, stapling can be a fast, safe and simple way to do all kinds of repairs and projects around the house.

Heat Guns Features


As such a simple tool, there are not many differences between one model of heat gun and another - but there are some features which are important. * Wattage - commonly from 1000W to 2000W (a measure of the power of the gun). Providing that there are heat and/or airflow controls, the higher the wattage, the better. * Main control switch - usually mounted on the front of the pistol grip, and normally a 'dead man' switch so that power is switched off when the finger pressure is removed - an ideal safety feature as the heat gun stops if it is accidentally dropped. * Temperature setting - at least 500°C is needed for stripping paint - the lower the bottom end of the range the more useful. A choice of controls make the tool more useful. * Airflow setting - having variable or more than one speed makes the tool more versatile. * Thermal cut out - this will switch off the tool if it becomes overheated. If this occurs, it indicates a fault in the tool or method of use - for safety, the fault must be identified and corrected before the heat gun is again used. * Flex length - lengths of 2.5 to 3 m are normally fitted, this means that when using an extension lead, the tool can be used at the full reach without having the socket hanging in mid air. * Hanging hook - useful for storing the tool. * Surface stand - this enables the heat gun to be safety 'rested' during pauses in the work and after uses. It also allows the gun to be used 'hands-free' when two hands are required on the work piece (such as when bending a plastic pipe). * Nozzles - most heat guns have a range of nozzles that can be fitted for specific uses, generally these need to be purchased separately. The main types of nozzles are: 1. Reducer nozzle - when you want to concentrate the heat onto a specific area. 2. Reflector nozzle - wraps round a plastic or copper pipe to spread the heat around the pipe surface. 3. Flat nozzle - for spreading the hot air over a wider narrower area. 4. Glass protector nozzle - for use when stripping paint on a window to keep the direct heat off the glass.

Nail Guns Safety problem


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.
