Best hardi board gun ever

There are alot of hardi board guns on the market and they are all very expensive.I installed hardi for years and have owned many of them.The best gun I ever had was a Bostich coil nailer for plywood.It has a high capacity magazine and all you have to do to get the nails to shoot flush without damaging the hardiboard is to put a rubber cap on the nail head.Go to a drug store and get the round caps that go on the bottom of a cruch drill a hole in the center of cap and cut out a notch so the safety slide will move freely.apply a few drops of crazy glue and you got yourself one mean hardi gun for a third of the cost.

what kind of grease to use on fr350 nail gun for piston o ring

Use white grease or silicone paste. White grease will stay in the gun longer . Silicone paste is cleaner will cost more however will break down with water that enters the gun and will tend to dry out. In either case, the grease will wash out of the gun if you use too much oil on a daily basis. For best results, install an oiler that will introduce oil mist into the gun (not expensive).

Does Devilbiss make a generic gun that the parts will exchange? We are trying to rebuild 35 guns and the devilbliss parts are to expensive

devil are relatively cheap to buy, but the parts are not.
most brands are not interchangable and lots of times the guns are not compatable from style to style and year to year even from the same manufacture!

failed gun oparation wolf by taito

Sounds to me like the optical sensor has gone bad in your gun. Because the gun portion of the game is virtually the only moving part, it is the part that's most likely to have issues. The barrel of the gun has a small optical sensor board, and these occasionally go bad after years of use and abuse. If you feel comfortable with the task, I'd suggest that you disassemble the gun for your cabinet and locate/remove the small sensor board located near the barrel. this will probably have a small white plastic wire connector (called a Molex) that will allow you to easily remove the circuit board. Then all you'll have to do is purchase a replacement and install it. You should be up and running in no time.

Finding a replacement Optical Circuit board may present some challenges, but you can occasionally find an entire replacement gun on eBay:

digital heat gun won't run

Maybe its only the thermal overload switch , probably faulty and giving a false reading , they are designed to protect the motor from overheating , not really sure if you can fix it yourself though you might have to get it replaced if under warranty or repaired if not too expensive
