I have a Craftsman Finish nailer 16 guage, model#315.18314 that sets the nails too deep. I don't see any adjustments on it. I reduced the air pressure and that did not help. What can I do to fix the problem or do I have to live with it. Thank you.

I reduced the pressures to the point that it wud not work at all and I kept increasing the pressure until it finally operated and the nail went almost thru the piece. That doesn't help.

Is it supposed to have a rubber-tipped safety and the rubber is missing by any chance?

The rubber foot is in place and looks to be in good condition.

Too soft of material? What is the material receiving the nail?

I was going to be a smart a** and tell him to use harder wood but I held back.

If you don't have the manual, try to get one from the Sears website. Odd that it has no depth adjustment.

They never have depth adjustments, at least Senco or Bosch. The depth is usually controlled by air pressure. I forgot to ask him if he put any gun oil in it then try it with the pressure reduced. They really act up when they get dry.

I put a couple or more drops of oil in it every time before I use it. Maybe it has seen its best days and I should get another one. Thanks everybody.
