common nail gun problems

2023-06-28

Gone are the days of manual labor when it comes to home improvement and construction projects – the modern toolbox relies heavily on power tools, and few of them are as well-rounded and practical as the nail gun. From professionals to DIY hobbyists, a good-quality nail gun can make working on any job smoother and faster. Nevertheless, issues may still arise, so this article will delve into the most common issues related to nail guns and how they can be addressed.

If you’re experiencing persistent difficulties with your nail gun, odds are you’re dealing with misfires. This issue could potentially be attributed to several sources, such as nails in need of a good scrubbing, or your gun finding itself bereft of freshness. Regardless of the cause of the malfunction, the goal should remain constant: clean both the nails and the riffle for a clear start. If that doesn’t solve the problem, rest assured that an investment in some top-notch nails may just provide the remedy needed to drive your issue into the ground.

Jamming can easily occur due to prolonged nails, undersized nails, or oddly bent ones – but never fear! All you need to do is double-check if you’re using the appropriate length of nail and then adjust the nail gun’s depth. If all else fails, your jamming problem will soon be solved.

Every now and then, the aftermath of nailing can become a nuisance. There may be too-long nails everywhere or maybe some of them are misshapen. In this event, before reaching for the vacuum, first set the power output on the nail gun. If this does not remedy the issue, it is time to upgrade as higher quality nails may be necessary.
