Bammer nailer fuel cell replacement


I have a Paslode gun and I am going to try the refill with the airsoft adapter... but FIY....Just saw a video on youtube about refilling small propane canisters for portable grills, etc. The 20lb tank was at room temp and the small bottle was frozen.... may help ????

I am in the process of finding out if I can make some kind of adapter that will work with other fuel sources. Will keep you posted.

Do you actually have the cell that fits in the gun. I got the gun from a friend and he had threw away all of the cylinders. If you do, you can contact me at lawnboy1965@hotmail.com .

Bammer nailer fuel cell replacement


What are your guys thoughts on the bammer, besides the whole discontinued part, is it a good gun for doing smaller trim jobs? Just wondering if I should pick up a hammer at a pawn shop for $45 and try my luck with refilling the cells with MAPP gas like has been suggested.

Bammer nailer fuel cell replacement


It's a great gun for small jobs. Uses one inch to two and a half inch, fifteen gauge nails. It takes a little effort to prime the combustion chamber with gas, when you press it down. Sometimes gets a little sketchy when you are trying to fit it into a small corner, or you are on a ladder trying to reach far. You have to hold the gun at an almost perfect ninety degree angle or it might slide away from your intended point of impact before you pull the trigger. In my opinion that's really the only bad point abut the gun, It takes effort to compress the chamber before firing each nail. I have popeye forearms so that's never been a problem for me, but some people I've lent the gun to, have complained about this.
It's super-easy to clear jams. Just pop the clip at the top of the feeder. Has plenty of power. Is easily adjustable to sink your nails to the precise depth you want.
If you can get past the lack of fuel cells, and don't have weak arms/wrists.... go for it.
Tell the pawn guy that no cells are available and you will only pay twenty. And even then only if it comes with one or two empty cells. They can be refilled.... With no fuel cells, the gun is completely useless.
I will give you twenty for two empty cells, as long as the seals seem intact!

I will sell my Bammer with empty fuel cell for $30, no guantees, and whoever buys it pays shipping. Probably $15 or so.. For $50 total plus shipping I also have a refill adapter to go with the gun.

Well friends, my old Bammer just died on the job, and I do not really feel like repairing one more obsolete tool. Still have five fuel cells , one of which was working in the nailer yesterday, all of which I think unused, and of Porter Cable's last production run of this fuel cell. If anyone out there is such a "tool fool" they want to try them out, talk to me. Niels Saustrup, N_Saustrup@att.net.
