My 18 gauge nailer leaks air somewhere internally in the tool. It is only
about 2 years old, and I've always oiled it per the instructions.
Is this worth getting serviced, or should I just bag it and buy a new one?
uuh, excuse me but...I've been using a Senco SLP20 brad gun for about
15 years professionally.......and just last week had to replace the
bumber & ram assembly.........but my Senco is oilfree.....as I thought
most all thier finish & trim guns are, ( SPL20, SFn1, SFN40, etc. )ya
might wanna double check that yours really is 'sposed to get oil.FWIW

That was my first thought. I got my SFN40 for practically nothing
because it had been oiled and all the seals were leaking. A quick
rebuild took care of the problem.
Regardless, a Senco is worth rebuilding.

Absolutely worth getting serviced. Senco is not Harbor Freight. They
are a quality tool designed for hard work. I'm surprised about the two
years, though. Mine is older than that and hasn't developed any
problems. Still, it's worth fixing.
