The nailer must be firmly pressed against the surface you are planning to nail. This will arm the nailer in preparation for firing the nail.

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: 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.

SOURCE: nail gun wont fire

First - the air pressure has to be high enough - check the regulator on the tank to make sure it is delivering in excess of 60-70 psi (which I am sure you have already done).

If you have dry fired these guns (i.e. shot them off with no nails in them while you were lubricating them maybe) the mechanism inside could be damaged. I had that happen to one of my nailers (same brand). That was when I learned not to dry fire them...

Since both of them are not working though I would be more inclined to look at the air supply first.

SOURCE: air is escaping from the top of the bn125a brad

it sounds like you have a damaged o ring/seal that requires maintenance. You can go to Dewaltservicenet.com and download a breakdown for this tool and also order parts for it. When reinstalling new o rings don't forget to put a little bit of grease on them so they don't roll or pinch. Let me know if you need more help

Mastercraft brad nailer model 57-7900-2 5/8" - 2"


No experience of Mastercraft brad nailers but if fires with out depressing nose tool is dangerous and should be returned to manufacturer. Dewalt make battery powered brad guns and recently produced a battery framing nailer. I would not say that other nail guns are exactly cheap if they are beware they may not be up to the pressures excerted on the whilst firing.

Hey, I'm having trouble with my Dewalt 18ga Brad Nailer trigger. Can you send me the directions you have on how to get into this thing? I'd really appreciate it.


For removal of dewalt D51238k trigger valve. Remove the nails.
Remove the pin holding the trigger in place. Then remove two roll pins in the body of the gun just above the trigger (3mm roll pins). With gloved hand, apply air pressure to the gun which will pop out the trigger valve. Use caution because the valve could come out with force. Try with low pessure first, then increase as needed. If you are removing the trigger because the gun will not fire, (only puff of air from trigger area), suspect problem in the head valve instead (usually, trigger valve is bad if air leaks from trigger when you connect air ). Good luck

I have a DC608 cordless nailer that will not fire the driver the driver does not move at all but everything else seems to be functioning properly Thanks Tim


Hi,

You can go to this webpage and download the owner's manual which gives instructions: http://servicenet.dewalt.com/Products/Detail?productNumber=DC608K
You can also download a parts diagram and order parts here.

I looked through the manual and found that DeWalt's Brad Nailer does not require tools to remove jammed nails from the nose piece. I believe this is the problem with your nailer, unless it's empty. Some of these nailers will not fire if there's less than 6 nails in them.
Another feature on this nailer is the trip lock. It is a safety feature that prevents accidental firing. Any time you adjustments made to the nailer will automatically turn the trip lock to lock position. You'll find this lock on the right side, under the Dewalt label.

The instruction manual will explain all this.

Hope this helps. If it does, I would appreciate a vote. Thanks,

Handie Andie

Make sure the area where the nails slide through is nice and clean. Lubricate with some spray silicone. They may not be seating all the way against the nail driver mech.

The gun won't put out any nails anymore......It is a cordless bradnailer..


If it is the cordless Brad Nailer and will not fire nails anymore chances are the drive belt came off track. Internally those DeWalt cordless nailers operate much like a Baseball pitching machine. And when you fire a nail the drive belt pinches the driver blade which fires the nail. Here is the product documentation from DeWalt's website. http://www.dewaltservicenet.com/Products/DocumentView.aspx?productid=68728&typeId=16768&documentId=35981
The Drive belt is part #59. I have never opened one of these before so I can not tell you if it is a simple fix, I would open it up and peek around just a few screws on the top should open it. If you do not feel comfortable opening that unit yourself, I would take it to an Authorized DeWalt repair facility.

Brad nailer not firing nail...can hear brief air noise upon pulling the trigger


Porter cable makes a number of brad nailers (18 gauge) that very quickly suffer from the problem that you are having. You did not mention the model number of your gun but if it is one of these, (bn125a, bn200a, ns100a) kit # 60061 will fix the problem. It costs between 25 and 30 dollars. Google that part number or order from www.dewalt.com. Dewalt owns the porter cable brand. Before you order the kit, check that the driver blade is not bent and stuck. The driver should travel freely down the cylinder. When you install parts, use Danco silicone grease to lube (availabel at Lowes in the plumbing department) If your model # is different from those mentioned above, please email me and I will recommend a repair.
