PASLODE IM350 nailer problem


Hi

I've just bought a paslode IM350 nailer off ebay, and the hammer doesn't go all the way back once it's fired (So the hammer doesn't engage with the head of the nail, it just sort of slides past it) IF I push the hammer back using a screwdriver etc. it fires one nail, and then it's back to square one.

Any ideas?

Cheers

Nick Liv

All sorted now. I took it to bits, and it was filthy. A goood clean with paraffin, and reassembly with fresh lube, and it's spot on now.

Good. The key factor to Paslode framer operation is REGULAR CLEANING and maintenance.

Did you use the Paslode cleaner/degreaser and lubricant?

Did you follow the directions to do it properly?

Question

PASLODE IM350 nailer problem


Hi,

I too am having some problems with my IM350 nail gun. I have just replaced all the O-rings and gave it a good clean, however, it will only fire once and it does not pick up a nail. The firing pin remains in the down position and will not fire again, until I have push it back with a screwdriver. Any help would be most welcomed.

sounds like the hammer pin is bent. I have that gun and dropped it only to have that same problem. I repaired it and it works like a champ now.

Hope that helps

Yes, could be a bent driver, or possibly a piece of a broken nail head stuck in the guide. I've had that happen before.

After a good cleaning, it's important to oil the cylinder and piston rings for proper operation as well.

The piston should slide up and down the cylinder with very little effort.
