  • How To Clean & Maintain Your Paslode Cordless Nailer

    Many people aren’t aware of how little maintenance is required to keep your Paslode tools in top working condition. Less than twenty minutes, once every six months, that’s all it takes. We’ve compiled the steps for maintaining your cordless tools:

    • Gather Needed Supplies - Grab your lint free rag, tool oil, tool cleaner, and Allen wrench. A lint free rag is important as you don’t want to leave any particles in the tool.
    • Safety First - Remove everything; battery, fuel, and nails.

     

    Maintenance:

    • Clean - Grab your tool cleaner. Begin removing dirt and residue from the filter, cylinder head assembly and combustion chamber.
    • Oil - Oil your motor assembly sleeve, seal rings and combustion chamber.
    • Reassemble - Make sure that all screws are tight. Loose screws can result in personal injury or malfunction - for example, a loose nose could cause your nailer to fire multiple nails.
    • Test it - Make sure everything is in working order. It is normal for the tool to release a small amount of smoke. However, if something is malfunctioning, you are going to want to consult the product manual. If you can’t resolve the problem, contact the manufacturer.

     

    Tips:

    *Don’t forget to check the expiration date on the fuel cells. If your fuel is expired, this could be causing problems.

    *YouTube videos can be a great resource for tool maintenance, if you are doing maintenance for the first time or prefer a visual example.

    A well maintained tool can lead to improved productivity and years of reliable service.

  • Paslode Has Done It Again - Improved RounDrive Framing Nail

    Paslode has improved their RounDrive 30° degree paper tape brite framing nails yet again, making them one of the highest quality framing nails on the market. Let's take a look at some of the improvements, which include ease of drive and improved holding power.

    Ease of Drive:

    RounDrive framing nails now boast improved ease of drive when sinking nails into tough lumber. A more consistent coating area leads to higher retention of the nail's coat. The outer surface of the nail spine also has less contact with other nails when packaged - creating minimal coating wear during handling. Paslode cites an independent study, comparing current Paslode RounDrive nails with new Paslode RounDrive nails - finding the new nails have improved penetration rates up to 40%.

    Holding Power:

    The coating on these nails is also thicker, thanks to a groovy spine on the nail, which captures additional coating as it is applied. Paslode tells us another main reason for improved holding power results from an increase to the surface area of the nail, which makes contact with metal.

    In addition to these improvements, RounDrive 30° degree paper tape brite framing nails continue to offer the same benefits they always have, including: rigid and compact strips that are easy to handle, reinforced nail heads for tighter spacing, and the same number of nails per strip. If you're looking for an improved framing nail, we suggest you try these out.

  • Introducing The Powernail Model 2000

    Nail Gun Depot will now carry Powernail’s new Model 2000 (replaced by Powernail 2000F), the industry's first trigger-pull 20 gauge cleat nailer for hardwood floors!

    The Powernail 2000 (replaced by Powernail 2000F) has a fully adjustable "Flex Foot" that can install hardwood from 5/16” to 9/16” - and every measure of thickness between. The Model 2000 will install engineered products and solids alike, and will even pierce stand-woven bamboo, thanks to its unique drive blade and extra durable 20 gauge PowerCleats. The Powernail 2000 can even install most of today’s click lock systems. 
    Powernail is the first manufacturer to make a nailer that will adapt to a variety of click lock profiles, with a fastener that is strong enough to penetrate MDF cores without folding, bending or curling.

    The Model 2000 uses 1” and 1-¼” 20 gauge L-Cleats, available in five-packs of 1000 count boxes.

  • How To Load A Pneumatic Stapler

    Learn how to load your air stapler properly. Loading a pneumatic stapler varies slightly from tool to tool, but the following instructions demonstrate how to load most common models. Learn more on Nail Gun Depot.

    First, you must ensure you have the proper staple - this will determine whether or not the tool can even be used. After identifying the correct staples, you are ready to load them.

    Most staple guns are either top or bottom loading. Medium and heavy wire pneumatic staplers generally load from the top, while most fine wire staplers are bottom load. Before loading, be sure to disconnect the air supply and keep the stapler pointed away from you.
    A top loading stapler is fairly straight forward. Pull the magazine follower back until it locks into position. After the follower is locked into position, place the strip of staples over the magazine rail. The staples should move freely back and forth on the rail. The last step is to unlock the follower and release it so that it pushes the staples into the nose of the staple gun for firing.
    Bottom load staplers operate differently. First, locate the magazine release, generally found at the rear of magazine. Depress its release and slide the magazine rail away from the nose. Turn the stapler upside down and insert the staples into the channel toward the nose of the stapler. After the staples have been loaded, slide the magazine rail back toward the nose until it locks into place.
     
    Now you are ready to connect your air supply and test fire.

  • Aerosmith VersaPin Equals Labor Savings

    VersaPins are the perfect solution for 16-18 gauge steel applications. They enable you to save time over screws, powder actuated and other time consuming installation methods. The speed of a pneumatic nail gun makes attaching gypsum board, Hardie siding, and lath to steel easier than ever. These ballistic point steel pins are designed to quickly penetrate steel - allowing it to rebound back around the fastener to provide the maximum holding power. VersaPins are made with steel that is hardened with a unique heat treating process, making them ductile and extremely strong. The VersaPin is approved for use by James Hardie, and multiple International Building Code sections including ESR-3145, ER-5667 and ESR-1641. Feel free to contact Nail Gun Depot's customer service with technical or installation questions.

  • How A Nail Gun Works

    Ever wonder how your nail gun works? Learn the fundamentals of nailer operation, getting a behind the scenes look at the engineering marvels that power these game changing tools.

    The most common type of nail gun is pneumatic, or air-powered. Compressed air is supplied via a separate air compressor, which is powered by either electricity or gasoline. The air from the compressor is pushed through a hose into a holding area in the nail gun; this is called an air reservoir. The typical pneumatic nail gun uses a piston with a long shaft attached to it called a driver. The driver is what makes contact with the head of the nail and forces it into the work surface. The piston is located in a cylinder inside the main body of the nail gun. The air in the reservoir is held in place by a valve, which is located above the piston.

    Before the trigger is pulled, the air pressure below the piston is greater than the air pressure above it, which keeps the piston at the top of the cylinder. When the trigger of the nailer is depressed, the valve opens, forcing air into the cylinder and making the pressure above the piston greater than below it. This drives the piston down and hammers the nail. When the trigger is released, the air inside the nail gun around the cylinder is vented through the small holes drilled toward the bottom half of the cylinder. This makes the pressure below the piston greater than above it, and forces the piston back up to its starting position. Simultaneously, the valve opens back up and forces the used air through an exhaust port in the top of the nailer.

  • 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.
