I am having trouble with the nailer. It wont sink brads unless I
boost the pressure to 110psi and take off the plastic tip. I oiled it
2 days ago and have not used it for more than a few tests since
Anybody out there had similar problems and solved them?
Amen bruddah. No oil in Bostich. I have it written in sharpee on mine.
Maybe it is gummed up from using oil.
By the way I don't think my 18ga Bostich has ever jammed up or
misfired ever. I love that yellow bastard.
Which model do you have? I have three 18 ga brad nailers; a Delta that
does double duty as a helluva crown staple nailer, as well as brads, and
has not misfired once in six years; a HF $14 special which won't die,
misfires occasionally, but is easy to clear; and my goto Bostitch
BT1855, which has never misfired, but I hear is hell to clear if it ever

Make sure it's not an oil-less gun.
Rather than rebuild it, swing by HF and pick up a new one for $15 on
sale. Or splurge and go for the stapler/nailer at $20 on sale. ;)
However beautiful the strategy, you should occasionally look at the results.
