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.

My nailer simply stopped nailing. when I depress the nose and then pll the trigger, I get a puff of air, and that is is. Thoughts?


could be jammed nail, bent or broken driver or stuckpiston. unplug air and thoroughly look at the magazine for jammed nails, is the driver fully retracted if not could be bent or have something behind it and lastly, reemove the cap and look for a broken driver. Let me know if you need more help

My nail gun will not shoot nails any suggestions?


could be several problems, are you using the right guage nails, is there a nail jammed in the nose assembly, is the driver bent or broken, I would look for a jammed nail first and if none then I would remove the cap and check the condition of the cylinder and piston. they have a bad habit of breaking the driver blade loose from the piston

My Bostitch SB 2in1 nailer will only on occation nail all the way into the wood. For the most part the nail will bend over before it goes in, which damages the wood. I spend more time tying to pull out...


I ran into this problem many times. Don`t use the Bostitch brand nails. Use the generic or other name brand. You`ll notice the generic one`s heads are just a little bigger and the driver blade won`t run down the side of the nail!
Thanks,
Jeff

Bostich gun problem


If the piston/driver is broken, the gun will fire however nailing will not take place because the piston will jam in the cylinder. Sometimes the cylinder will also crack when the driver goes. If the piston is not broken but stays down, then check the cylinder check valve, worn lower bumper, bent driver or cracked cylinder. 18 guage nailer has a very thin driver which will easily bend or break. Parts however are not expensive.
