I've been using the Senco and Dewalt battery units for the last few years. Those have a depth adjustment. I have to check the Bostich pnuematics, but I think you're right, pressure equals depth.

Yeah I guess u're right about the kidding. The wood I was using at the time was 1/2 inch pine grooved plywood. It doesn't matter what wood I use whether its base board or pine. I took it apart and didn't see anything that could be fixed or replaced. So I'll just use it for thick wood.

Yeah. We've already covered that we know there's no depth adjustment on the safety...
How big is your compressor?
How long/diameter hose?
I know you can replace the piston and head assembly...
