My Bostitch N12 won't advance nails
It could be the o-rings for the feed piston but a bad feed spring will
also cause problems. that would be the easiest place to try if you can
find a spring. Many of the parts for these are becoming NLA (no longer
available) from Bostitch. One problem they had in the feed piston area
was chipping the nose where the orign seals the piston stem. There is a
small bumper on the inside of the feed piston cap that goes bad and
allows the piston to travel to far back which slams the feeder against
the lower housing and can chip it where the piston goes through.

Have a stanley air compressor worked fine but now the air won't come through the tip of the hose even when I put it on the tire?
Talking in the past tense about compressor working fine before.
Is it working fine now"
If it is, pumping the air tank full, and air not coming from the end of the hose, the end tool valve maybe jammed, or the hose plugged. (sometimes the inner lining of the hose separates from the reinforcing mesh and clogs the hose)
To test this theory, take the hose off from the tank (when no air is in the tank), start the compressor and see if the air is pumping out freely. If it is then the compressor is indeed fine.
Take the tool of the end of the hose, then reconnect the hose and restart the compressor. This will tel you if either the hose or the end tool is at fault.

How do you safely remove jammed nail gun?
Not sure exactly what Bostitch framer model you have, but if it is powered by compressed air, as long as you remove the air hose from the nail gun, there should be no risk of the nail gun firing while you remove the jammed nail. There should be a way to access the driver area from the top of the nail gun, even via a latch or a couple screws. Remove the top part of the driver area and that should give you access to the jammed nail, which you can remove. Use long nose pliers or something similar if the nails are really stuck.

Bostitch compressor won't start
it has a reset button somewhere and usually a fuse. take the cover off (unplugged) and look for a red reset button or a fuse. if it keeps blowing the fuse or tripping the reset then it will likely need service by a service center.
