The feed system should be smooth all the way forward. For cleaning, wipe off the magazine or blow it out with air rather than using an oily lubricant. The lubricant actually attracts dirt and debris.

Good Morning, I have a Porter Cable Finish Nailer BN125A. When firing, nail does not go through and piston stays down and compress air goes out the head valve non stop.

Could be very simple problem of headvalve oring coming off or pinched. Remove the head and look at the oring installed on the headvale. Sometimes this oring will fall off the grove. If the oring is off groove and is pinched, you may need to replace with generic oring sold at Lowes (if oring is gold vinyl replace with black rubber from lowes, will work better). If oring is in place, pull out the cylinder and examine the driver for bent blade/broken. If bent, make adjustment or replace as needed. If the driver is in good shape check that the check valve is in the proper place. The check valve is a black rubber band around a series of holes on the outside of the cylinder. Good luck

Worn Out Hand Tools and Drill Bits..........

I don't know about you but I am sick and tired of paying for drill bits that wear out afetr they are used a few times and then have to be re bought.
I refuse, and here is what i decided to do to keep the money in my pocket and not their's.
First I bought myself a nice little electric Sears bench grinder. then I read about sharpening the drill bits on the grinder, after quite a few experimental tries I now have the angle of gring down to a science and my drill bits are sharp and ready to go everyday all day.
Also I fond my chisels need sharpening and my straight blade screw drivers as well so I do them all, of course wearing protective clothing and safety eye googles.
How about preserving those expensive pneumatic hand tools you have, they get abused also, much more then you think.
even after you bleed out the water and moisture from you air compressor and air lines using a water seperator the air tools still need this very important item to keep it working right and ready is called putting just a few drops of air tool iol into the air inlet side of the tools and running them with a rag placed over the exhaust ports catching the dirty spent oil coming out the end. Keeps them clean and well oiled for long life and durability.

My nail gun miss fires. seems there is not enough tension pushing the nails forward

Could be that the driver is not returning to top of the cylinder. Easy test, when the gun miss fires, remove air line, with thin metal, insert thru nose and push driver up. Retest gun. If driver was down a bit then nails will not feed. Remove head and check that driver oring is making good seal, lubed, and is not too tight or bent. Also check that lower bumper is not cracked or missing pieces. Replace parts as needed. If driver was all the way up, clean rails and pusher assembly with wd40 and follow with good cleaning with air. If pusher and rails working properly, must be problem with bad batch of nails, slightly thicker or wider head not allowing nail to easily slide. Open nose latch and check that nails slide thru easily.

Looking for a diagram or schematic for a senco fp18

I have a SENCO FinishPro18 that I inherited from my son when he died a year ago. It has worked fine till now. It does not shoot a nail when depressed against a board and I pull the trigger. I don't hear air leaking, but it seems there is little pressure. Having taken apart the head, then the base, it all seems in good shape. I have not taken apart the trigger assembly, as the removal is a total commitment. Thoughts? I could use some help.

How do I get it to work. It is loaded with staples but I cannot make it work. Would it be locked>

check the safety actuation mechanism. If that doesn't work, the feed and staple receiver are damaged.

Driver will not return to rest position,

The plunger or anvil has damage, or your return spring in the chamber is broken. This could also be caused by mechanical issue in the anvil track.

Max roofing nailer

Max nailers are very good quality and parts are not expensive. Parts and parts list at Check the following to repair not feeding problem.
Check paw in the door should have a light spring action. Feed paw should have a medium spring action. You may have to pull the feed piston back and hold to check feed paw spring action. Feed piston should have heavy spring action. If springs seem ok then remove feed piston and replace two orings. If the feed piston spring is broken replace with correct part. Make sure that the ports that direct air to feed piston are not blocked with bits of rubber or dirt. Sometimes parts of the bumper will break off and spread thru-out the gun. Good Luck and enjoy. (parts not expensive)
