Hi All,
I apologize if you are having difficulties with refilling your empty fuel cell. I would be willing to create a youtube video that entails the process step by step. What I need is someone to send me an empty fuel cell. You will be my proof that I started with an empty one. PM me for my address.
Cheers,
EM

Bammer nailer fuel cell replacement


Is anyone still following the Bammer fuel cell re-fill threads? I entered the conversation late in the game but stumbled on to it while looking for fuel-cell replacement cartridges...again. I would love to rescue my Bammer from the yard sale pile. Has any one else suceeded in re filling a fuel cell beside the window guy. I'm getting ready to install some baseboard in my house and don't think my pin nailer will cut it. The Bammer's just been sitting around gathering dust. Any help????

This video shows how to correctly use the propane refill adapter.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U_-Pi7FoUOo


If your bammer does not fire, follow the instructions above the trigger. It tells you how to clear the gas chamber. (Put the slider switch in lock mode. Push in 3 times. Move slider switch to fire mode. Then fire.) I'm not sure why but, the last time I used my bammer, it required that the chamber be cleared before every nail. (It's a pain. But it beats lugging around an air hose and compressor. I just figured it was a wanna be Crossman pellet gun.) Good luck!

I too am looking for a solution for my ol bammer. I see folks are trying to refill them but they are using the wrong gas. It requiors mapps gas and if someone has a refill adaptor in mind please let me know.

Bammer nailer fuel cell replacement


I got a real suprise finding out the cells were no longer available, they last so long I didnt need new ones for quite a while. I wanted to refill them years ago and didnt have the cute adaptor the utube video has but I did get far enough to find out it needs mapps gas. it is a hotter than propane gas that can be had at home depot in a yellow cylinder. I just need to find the adaptor now but it looks like a problem solved thing.

Bammer nailer fuel cell replacement


This procedure is to fill an airsoft gun not the bammer fuel cell. I too purchased this adapter and tried it to no avail. The adapter doesn't fit properly into the fuel cell opening and just sprays propane all over your hands.

I thought you where going to create a youtube video of the fuel cell being refilled?

Thanks

Bammer nailer fuel cell replacement


Hi, i came across this page because i recently purchased a Bammer myself... wasnt till after i bought the nailer that i realized the fuel cells are almost impossible to find...I frantically searched the internet with no reward... then i started calling local hardware stores. one of the guys at my local ace told me to try Fastenal... and i did.... Both the website and if yiou go to your local store can ship one to you for $20.25 a pop....

http://www.fastenal.com/web/products...ex?sku=0200875

little steep but when i only paid $20 for my Bammer.. i was more then willing to invest only $40 into this nailer that would more then last me for the 2 projects i bought it just for...

I am NOT saying that this Hilti gas works. Someone should try it and see. If you do try it, be sure to let us know if it works.
It sure looks like it's the same size and weight. Lets hope the gas is correct, and of course the nozzle.
You should be able to look at one in your local Fastenal store.

I see someone has had luck with an airsoft propane adaptor, and someone else tried the same solution with no luck. Quite possibly we are using the wrong procedure to refill the bammer fuel cell. Since i cannot figure out how to do it correctly, and since I cannot figure out how to send an e-mail directly to the person who did, could I get someone who has successfully managed to refill a bammer fuel cell to e-mail me how they did it?
I will sell the each fuel cell and the refill kit for $30.00 plus shipping if interested. Each refill kit full refill about 8 fuel cells. Please write to me and let me know.
Thanks
