Not only is an air nailer faster but for those who don't use a hammer every day, theair nailer is also more accurate. Be sure to use eye protection

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.

Did you ever have to remove a tire on your car or someone elses and the wheel...

Did you ever have to remove a tire on your car or someone elses and the wheel lugs were too tight?
Ok I have a "proven simple solution".
Keep available a deep socket 1/2" drive impact wrench quality for both 3/4" lug nuts and 13/16" lug nuts and a small 2-4 lb. hammer.
Put the socket on the tight lug, strike it with the hammer dead on, remove it with your lug wrench, if that doesnt work, apply WD 40, use a 1/2 breaker bar and slide a 2 foot pipe over the handle of the breaker bar, lean your body weight on the breaker bar/pipe and walla it will come off.

Many times a tire shop puts tires on and off your cars without the thoughts of how tight they are running down the lug nuts when using these tire guns, of course to make matters worse they "shoot" them on in a hurry with a 1/2" drive pneumatic impact wrench(tire gun).
These sort of devices can install nuts and bolts with great force, for example the force applied to a wheel lug useing an air gun can be upwards of 150-200 foot pounds, that is a lot of torque. Add the elements of snow, ice, winter road salts, sand, rain, and flooding and over time these lugs can be very stubborn, now you compound the matter with what I call,"Tire Guns Gone Wild", which is no more than a tire man or mechanic who is either not mindful of what they are doing or way to busy to think correctly and walla... tire lugs on too tight for the next guy to remove.
It may even pay to occassionally spray the tire lugs with a product sold in any parts dept called WD 40, it helps to keep them rust and corrosion free. There you have it folks
Happy Motoring!!!!

Stanley electric staple gun tre550

Javid Vossough solution will not work, yes it will fire one staple/nail but then nothing as the circuitry to the micro switch is needed to return the solenoid operated hammer inside the gun

Tre550 stopped working

Problem is the safety micro switch. This is engaged when you press the gun against the surface. You can open the gun and short the wires. Do remember will not safety switch and hence you must ensure others know this - no children!

1/2 inch to 1/4 inch collett Freud 3 and 1/4 hp router

Well, I had the same problem. I read one forum and they basically eventually managed to get it out by sheer brute force and white sore fingers. Maybe I am a wimp, but I could not do it. So I put a nail through two opposing holes in the collet and I clamped the nail in my bench press. Now I could use two hands on the nut, and thus having twice the strength effectively I managed to wiggle the parts apart. It is supposed to get easier over time. My fingers are still sore, but at least it works. Better than my first instinct to use vice grips and a sledge hammer (kidding).

Nail Gun how to

One of the factors used to designate compressor power is motor horsepower. However, this isn't the best indicator. You really need to know the amount of air the compressor can deliver at a specific pressure. The rate at which a compressor can deliver a volume of air is noted in cubic feet per minute (cfm). Because atmospheric pressure plays a role in how fast air moves into the cylinder, cfm will vary with atmospheric pressure. It also varies with the temperature and humidity of the air. To set an even playing field, makers calculate standard cubic feet per minute (scfm) as cfm at sea level with 68 degrees F air at 36% relative humidity. Scfm ratings are given at a specific pressure–3.0 scfm at 90 psi, for example. If you reduce pressure, scfm goes up, and vice versa. You also may run across a rating called displacement cfm. This figure is the product of cylinder displacement and motor rpm. In comparison with scfm, it provides an index of compressor pump efficiency. The cfm and psi ratings are important because they indicate the tools that a particular compressor can drive. When choosing a compressor, make sure it can supply the amount of air and the pressure that your tools need.
