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

Stop using it and take it in for service. If it is leaking air then an o-ring or seal may have failed (most likely guess) and it needs to be replaced.

My Pro 8000 stapler has about 20 staples jamed I need to how to unjam thew booklet does not show this


Clearing the Nail and
Staple Chamber
If, while using your Cobra

staple
and nail gun, it becomes necessary to
clear a jam from the staple chamber or
track, follow these instructions:

With the bottom of the gun
facing away from your face and
body, open the staple chamber by
squeezing and pulling the plastic
track release straight down away
from the base of the gun and
sliding the track back.(Fig 1)
(Note: the jammed staple or nail
may cause the track to be harder
to slide out than usual. Once the
staple or nail has been cleared,
the track will resume its normal,
free operation) Loose staples or
nails will be expelled from the
chamber.

Clear any remaining staples or
nails from the track and chamber
area.

Reload the Cobra staple and nail
gun and continue using.

Why might my nail guns not work?


Have you lubricated either nail gun? If not, go to Home Depot and get a bottle of air tool oil. It's in tools by the compressors. Disconnect the air hose from the tool. Pour about a teaspoon of oil into the air inlet of the tool. Reconnect everything and try it 10-20 times with no nails in the tool. Then try it with nails. Good luck.

Nails fail to feed


Without knowing your model number here are some things to check, in order of difficulty:
1. First make sure you're using the proper nails for your gun. If your gun isn't specifically listed on the box of nails as compatable make sure they are seating in your gun properly. Some brands of angled nails are a couple degrees off from others and won't work in competetor's guns.
2. Check the entire feed path of the nails in the magazine all the way up to where the driver catches the next nail. Sometimes dirt builds up in the track or there could be a peice of nail stuck in there preventing the nails from getting under the driver. Also the spring on the feed shoe should have strong pressure on the shoe all the way up to the head and the shoe has to ride freely in the magazine.
3. If the gun is making holes in the wood the driver isn't broke but it must be straight and true and the tip square. If not it will miss or slip off the nail before driving it. The only way to check the driver is to remove the head on the gun and take the driver out. The piston & driver should travel from the top to the bottom of the cylinder without binding anywhere. Correct any problems you find or replace any damaged parts and your gun should work.

How do I load nails into the 5700


Here is the link but I copied the instructions here too


http://ec1.images-amazon.com/media/i3d/01/A/man-migrate/MANUAL000035709.pdf



Loading Staples or Nails

Make sure there are no staples or nails jammed from previous usage by checking the handle operation.

CAUTION: IF A STAPLE OR NAIL IS JAMMED, POINT THE GUN AWAY FROM

YOURSELF AND OTHERS BEFORE OPENING THE TRACK AS THE JAMMED

STAPLE OR NAIL MAY BE FIRED OUT UPON OPENING

i) Point the bottom of the gun away from you and turn gun sideways.

ii) Turn gun up, grip track release buttons and push away to release, then slide the track out, as shown (fig. 1).

iii) Insert a strip of staples in the chamber with the legs pointing up (fig.1a). If nails are required, turn gun upside

down and tilt the gun away from yourself and load on the right hand side (as indicated on graphics at the

staple and nail exit) with point facing upwards (fig.1b) THE GUN MAY JAM IF NAILS ARE INSERTED IN THE

WRONG SIDE.
*Arrow

iv) Slide staple or nail track back into closed position - a click indicates that it is locked in position.
Your staple and nail gun is now ready for use.

I have the nt65ma2 it keeps shooting two nails at once. When you put the nails in do they need to go in the top track ? Or do they slide right in ?


Check that the nail is correct for the gun. Fifteen gauge is a very stout/strong nail and measures around .060. Place a strip of nails along the outside of the rails with nails aligned with rails. The first nail should be aligned with path of driver. If the angle is off do not use. Look at the thickness of the driver (and or condition of, no damage ), the nail should look about the same thickness. If nail is thinner than driver, the second nail in line will be in the path of driver. This could cause damage to gun. I believe that the nails slide in from rear.

Not sure how to load nails into magazine


Generally two reasons for nails not to make contact with driver. Make sure that the driver is returning to top of cylinder. If it stays in the path of the nail feeder, the nail cannot slide into position. Second, nails are not the right type or gauge for gun. Some nails even if they are the right gauge have a large head not allowing the strip to enter into chamber. Remove air hose from gun, check that piston is all the way up, then slide nails into chamber and see if they go all the way in easily with-out having to push. You should see the first nail in place from bottom where nail shoots out. The angle of the nail is very important. most pin nailers are 0 degree (not angled), but others have an angle. The gun should be labeled as to angle of nail. Hold a strip of nails against the outside of the magazine and see is the first nail is in line with the driver path. Good luck and post again if you have other question.

My gun fires but only loads the nail 20-30% of the time. I tried taking it apart but don't know where to look for the problem. Please help!


The problem will reside in the nail chamber. Most likely you have junk there or a scored feed area. Check the plunger and feed area for dirt and/or scoring to determine what exactly is holding up your advancing of strip nails.

Will bosch nail guns operate with Paslode brand nails?


The F28WW takes 28Deg nails that are collated with wire, so your nails won't work in that gun. The N80SB is also a 28Deg nailer so your 30 Deg nails won't work in that gun either. Sorry about the bad news but it looks like your going to have to spring for new nails
