I have a Bostitch 2.5 Gallon Compressor and nail gun. The compressor is working but the nail gun does not seem to be getting air through the hose. Any guidance?

compressor not compressing air --- problem reed valves or poppet valves in the compressor head
blocked supply tap to air line
air line not properly connected
check compressor tank air pressure gauge

Why might my nail guns not work?

Have you lubricated either nail gun? If not, go to Home Depot and get a bottle of air tool oil. It's in tools by the compressors. Disconnect the air hose from the tool. Pour about a teaspoon of oil into the air inlet of the tool. Reconnect everything and try it 10-20 times with no nails in the tool. Then try it with nails. Good luck.

Product NR83A2. Lubricate is coming from the trigger and exhaust cover. The nailer is new and I put lubricate in the gun prior to placing the air plug on. What is the best way to drain the excess...

Excess oil will eventually be consumed /blown out of gun, however if you store the gun over-nite with air inlet pointed down, gravity will assist. I find that oil /water will accumulate inside gun especially if compressor is passing oil and/or weather conditions cause system to produce lots of water. Majority of guns that come in for repair suffer from a lack of lubrication. Several drops at start of day should be ok for oil lubricated compressors and maybe more for oil-less. If oil drips out of gun overnight (if stored as stated above) then reduce drops. What actually shortens life of gun is debris that enters gun from handling and that enters hoses during transport. Before connecting air hose to gun (with hose under pressure) momentarily connect a spare quick connect fitting and blow debris out of hose.

Leaves about a 1/4" of nail from seating

This can happen for a number of reasons.

1) Insufficient air pressure (should be set to around 100PSI)

2) Hitting another nail or other extremely hard surface (old roofs are known for this)

3) Defect in the gun or lack of lubrication.

Since this is a reconditioned unit, I think that the gun is probably fine. Verify that the compressor has the correct pressure and that the hose is large enough in diameter to deliver sufficient air to the gun. Check the CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute) rating of the compressor/tank combo against the requirements of the gun.

Keep us posted,

Nail gun doesn't shoot and air blowing out vent constant.

We used nail guns for years. I still own 6 guns, but they aren't used much anymore.
You have a 'blown head gasket.'
Or there is debris from the air hose that got lodged into the gun.
There is a head gasket and a trigger gasket.
Both can blow out any time from use, lack of oil, or they can stick open from debris.
You can take apart the head and clean it up and add oil to see if that solves problem.
You can order a gun re-build kit for your model and put in the parts yourself.
You can have a nail gun repair shop do the job.

Nail guns require gun oil.
If you don't use gun for a while, oil should be put into air hose opening and then left to run down into gun. More oil is better.
If you use 3-in-1 oil or some oil besides gun oil, then it will corrode the gaskets.
When storing air hose and guns, put tape over openings so they stay clean.
Before hooking air hose to a gun, you can also put a blower on hose and blow out the line first

Paslode air framer not sinking some nails

Your air pressure is dropping everytime you fire. It sound like your compressor is not cutting back in untill it to low. Not giving your tool enough continuess pressure. Your compressor cut in pressure should be around 90-100psi no less. and your max. pressure no more then 120psi. (Make sure your regulator is set at 110psi)
good luck...!

Nail gun will not shoot

Not all 120psi air supplies are the same. Here are some differences. The pressure regulator has a great deal of effect on the performance of the air tool. Regulators are sold by the volume of air (cfm)that they can handle. The more cfm the larger the pipe fittings on the regulator. A 1/4 fitting regulator will restrict the air somewhat compared to a 3/8. Another difference is weather moisture is present in the air. Moisture will temporarily help seal the orings, however too much water in gun will cut the orings. The air hose and fittings will also stifle performance. Long small diameter hose will lower pressure at the gun. This can be measured by installing a guage on a T fitting on the end of the hose and watch the pressure as you fire the gun. Larger fittings and hose ID will improve performance. Finally, your nail gun should work on both compressors. To make your nailgun work at home, (assuming that there are no air leaks) lube the headvalve parts with silicone grease. (sold at lowes in plumbing dept) For best performance, replace the orings in the head valve, examine the plastic parts where the orings contact and look for wear and tiny scratches (use magnify lense). Replace these worn parts along with orings. Replace the head gasket and make sure that the body and the head-cap are not warped. Place sheet of fine sandpaper on flat surface, with cylinder removed rub the body of the gun on paper a few times to check for warp. Do same with cap. Parts are available at www.toolpartsdirect.com.

Nail Gun cost

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.

How to Install Air Compressor and Nail Gun

Set up the pressure on the air compressor. First plug the air compressor in, then check the pressure. It should be between 90 and 110 pounds per square inch (PSI) for home use. If it is not in this range, turn the knob to the left to decrease the pressure and to the right to increase the pressure. Use the appropriate nail gun for the job. For example, to nail shoe molding to base boards, a standard finishing nail gun would be perfect. It holds any size nail between 5/8 inch and 2 inches. This nail gun could be used for many projects with great results. Check the gauge the nail gun takes before purchasing the nails for the gun. If you get the wrong gauge they will not fit in the gun. You can check this by looking at the information printed on the side of the nail gun next to the model number. You can also open the nail chamber for this information. Attach the nail gun to the air compressor. You can do this before or after you load the nails into the gun. Use the air compressor hose to attach to the bottom of the nail gun. It screws on much like the end of a hose. If you do not have the right size air hose, you can find one at your local hardware store.
