I have the IM200li.2 18 guage Brad nailer but the adjustment screw goes forward and stops but goes back and doesn't stop so how do I get it to stop so I don't blow right thru the trim I'm trying to put up

SOURCE: air allways and continually leaks forcably from the top. Bostitch

This nailgun has several parts to the headvalve that must fit together properly to seal. Go to WWW.toolpartsdirect.com for a diagram of this tool. The part called the diaphragm is source of problem. It has thin vinyl walls that will fold over when you assemble. The piston will not cause the gun to leak, just make sure that piston fits snug into the cylinder. Loose oring on piston will only cause low power or the poston may not retract all the way back up. Some piston/drivers had a plastic ring instead of an oring. The plastic ring had a secondary oring under, however not necessary. You can use rubber or plastic, just make sure that the piston is not too tight or too loose. The piston oring is the only oring in the gun that can be cut to fit. It is like a piston in a car engine. The piston rings have a gap.

SOURCE: Porter Cable 2 inch brad nailer piston does not return

Hi,
Sounds like the cylinder check seal. That`s the o`ring on the outside of the cylinder sleeve. With little holes in the groove. You have to remove cylinder sleeve to get to it.
Thanks,
Jeff

SOURCE: porter cable brad nailer only fires brad on second trigger pull

The dent in the wood is not caused by the air. It's caused by the set that drives the brad. Are you oiling it consistenly? Are the brads the right manufacturer for your porter cable brad nailer? From the information you give it appears that the brads are not advancing correctly or that the air pressure is not sufficient to dislodge the brad from the brad strip on the first strike - it takes an additional strike to break it free. The standard for adding oil is to add ten drops of air tool oil for every hour of operation. That seems like a lot, but the correct amount of oil is a sure way to prevent most air tool problems.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the info. I was not oiling it at that rate. Is there anything I can do to fix the issue now that I didn't prevent it?"

SOURCE: air blows thru the trigger on both my finish nailer and staple gu

there is an o ring in the trigger valve referred to as a Purple o ring that is probably split. If you can find a air tool center that has them you will save a lot of money versus replacing the trigger valve. Let me know what you are going to do and I will help you with the removal of the valve.

I need stainless nails for Makita AF505 nail gun


Your nailer uses 18 guage straight nails, from 5/8" to 2" long. As long as you meet these requirements it doesn't matter if they are basic bright, galvanized or staniless nails. If you Google or Bing search "18 guage stainless steel nails" you will find several mail order places that carry the nails you need. Not very many places carry stainless steel nails in stock because of their cost. Unless you live in an area where their use is predominant you will have to order them.

Brand new brad nailer shoots 2 nails and then it blows air


first make sure that you are using the right guage nails and if so I would return it to the place of purchase for replacement., the blowing of air could indicate a jammed nail in the track, look for that first and make sure the driver is retracting fully.

Mastercraft Brad nailer piston always fires damaging finish but nail gets randomly shot. Thought it was a indent before nail shot to indent nail since it mostley shoots nails after second shot but lately...


The dial on the top of the gun is most likely the depth adjustment for the nails, this should solve the driver damaging the work piece. Make sure the nails are the correct guage for the nailer you have.
