I have a Bostitch N88 nail gun.
I was framing an addition today and my Gun jammed.
Now this wasn't unusual as it tends to jam all the time, seems to be a problem.
My partner has the predessor, and his jammed.
I unjammed his (seems the hammer slipped out of it's slot), it worked fine for a while then the hammer wouldn't retract all the way.
Any ideas as to why this happens?
I unjammed my gun ( just remove the nails, get the stuck nail out, and reload), no problem, I do it all the time.
I then loaded my gun with #8's and it always fired 2 nails, not one.
With the other gun not working, I ended up nailing the sheathing on by hand. What a pain.
What's going on? Anyone have any suggestions.
I can frame with my gun, but can't sheath. This is really slowing us down. (besides the pain in the ####.)
Is this N88 a dud, or what?
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
