How To Use A Framing Nail Gun Or Nailer

 
Strip Nailers
 
To use a strip nailer, pull back the magazine follower to prepare for loading. Insert the proper nails into the nailer's magazine - see manufacturer specs for fastener information.
 
Keep in mind, some nail guns load from the top, while others load from the rear.
 
After inserting nails, release the magazine follower to allow for tension on the nails. Now, you will want to attach your air line to the tool.
 
To fire, most nailers will require the safety to be depressed against a surface, while the trigger is pulled at the same time.
 

Two modes of operation are available, bump fire and sequential operation. Bump firing will eliminate the need to release and pull the trigger after each shot. 

 

Most nailers also feature an adjustable depth of drive. This allows for flush driving or countersink.

 

Coil Nailers

To use a coil nailer, open the magazine basket and front door latch. Inside the basket is an adjustable nail tray. Be sure to set the tray for the length of fastener you are using, to allow for optimal performance. 

 

Insert nails into the magazine basket. Toward the nose of the tool, you will find a feed pawl. The feed pawl guides nails into the chamber. Be sure to align the collation wire and nail head into the proper grooves. 

 

Close the magazine basket and door latch, attach your air line, and follow the same steps listed above to fire. 

 
Always consult the manufacturer's operating manual for exact instructions detailing the specific tool you are using.
