Paslode T250A-F16 Finish Nailer, A Piece of Junk!!


So I bought the paslode 16 guage angled finish nailer, it fired 1 nail then broke. (Using paslode nails and 100psi)

The hammer will not retract to load the next nail. I can put is back manually, and then it will fire 1 more nail.

This was a brand new nailer, you'd think you'd get more than 1 nail use from it before it broke.

This may very well be the biggest piece of junk I've ever got.

Does anyone know a fix for this?

Has anyone else had this problem? Should I replace or return this one and try a different brand?

Luckily I also ordered a Senco brad nailer which is working great so I am able to finish my project.

Abe, I don't own one of those nailers. But I kinda pay attention to tools, and I've never heard anyone else call Paslode junk. You got a bad one. It broke. Take it back and get another.

I've got two of them and only had one miss fire in a year and that was because it hit a knot.

Try a couple drops of pneumatic oil.

paslode nailers are one of the few brands that most certainly DO NOT classify as junk. they are a go to brand for most pros

you may have a very rare lemon gun, but heres a better question. did you get the right type of nails for this gun, they make 16 gauge nailers that are both straight nailers and angled nailers. they need the specific nail for the gun other wise your going to have problems

Does the oil go on the hammer?

Thanks, it seems to be working OK now.

Maybe there is a breaking in process with these? Or should I still exchange it for a new one?

And if the second one does the same thing, or otherwise malfunctions in short order, then you can call 'em "junk."

The gun could have set on the shelf long enough for the oil to drain away or got sticky. It will probably be good to go now.
