How To Clean & Maintain Your Paslode Cordless Nailer
November 6, 2013
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.
- 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.
*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.
