Question about Hitachi Tools & Hardware - Others

1 Answer

Porter cable PCC790 cordless nail gun fires but no nail comes out. Magazine won't open.

Was using Bostitch 18 gauge nails and worked fine. Ran out and salesman recommended Hitachi nails. The first nail bent and jammed the nailer. I cleared the jam. Now it fires but no nail comes out. The magazine will not open.

    I used exactly the same size and gauge nails. Compared the packages before I installed them to be sure. What I want to know is how to get the magazine open.

SOURCE: Nailer jams with 1-5/8 brads

It sound to me that the 1 5/8 brads are not 18 guage but probably 16 guage and they will not work. Double check them first before going any further. You can usually lay them next to the smaller ones that work and see the size difference, if not let me know and I will dig deeper.

SOURCE: Bostitch nail gun loss of pressure, won't fire nail

Hello. I can help you. The nail gun you have uses 18 gauge brads. I would use only original Bostitch 18 gauge.

The one MM of difference you mention is the reason why you do not have the pressure you did have. Get rid of those 31MM brads and get the 18 gauge. Home Depot carries the Bostitch line. I would go there or to homedepot.com

SOURCE: On the Hitachi NR83A2 nailer. Where does the end

Hi,
It goes thru the same hole as the magazine bolt on the nose. Sounds like yours is broken.

Can My FC 350 A used 28 degree nails


The manual for your gun specifies 34-degree nails from 2 to 3 1/2 inches long. 28-degree, wire collated nails are a Stanley-Bostitch thing and they only work in their nail guns, they will not work in your nail gun. You need 34-degree, paper-tape collated nails. I know Senco framing nails will work in your gun and I think Duo-fast makes 34-drgree nails but check that before buying them.

How do I load the 2 1/2 inches nails to my 16 ga porter cable finish nailer? How do I put the oil and what part of the gun?


Hello,

You need to open the nail magazine and you just load one strip of nails at a time, then close the magazine. It will have a spring putting pressure on the nails, so it will have resistance on it and it will increase as you close it.

The oil gets dripped in the air hose connection on the gun before you connect the air. Make sure that this gun actually takes oil, some newer guns are oilless.

Hope this helps,Matt

Will work fine for one or two nails and then nails jam in the gun or it shoots two or three at once.


This is iffy... but PC nailers are nit picky. If you used someone elses nails, it can (and will) jam and mess up.
So, if Porter Cable nails are being used, clean and lube the nail shoot (with a few drops of air tool oil).

If that does not work, Invest 19 dollars in a new, 18 guage nailer at Harbor Freight. I have 2 of those and they have been trouble free for 3 years.

Dewalt cordless nail gun fires but doesn't seem to feed the nails very well, alot of misfires.


Try another brand of nails -- maybe your gun doesn't like those. Also, blow any dirt out of the nail magazine.
