Air in gun when clear jammed nail in pneumatic air framing gun nailer? 1 shot safety?


suppose I get a nail jam in a pneumatic gun. If I disconnect the air hose, is there still air in the gun (or any other pneumatic tool like a grinding wheel etc)? If there is still air in it, is there a way to bleed it out without attempting to shoot the gun with a nail jammed in there?

also, suppose I have the gun on single shot mode, if I hold the trigger and then push the nose down, will it shoot, or it would only shoot in bump/rapid mode if that's done?

Re: Air in gun when clear jammed nail in pneumatic air framing gun nailer? 1 shot saf


By Law (or OHSA Regulation?), the air should drain from the gun when the air hose is disconnected, otherwise the potential for injury is there. Makes sure the gun has the open MALE end on it and you will be fine.

Single shot mode "should" not allow for a bump fire. If it does, and I suggest you check every so often, the trigger is broken and needs to be taken out of service until repaired. Only rapid fire mode should allow a bump fire.

Single fire mode requires the nose switch to be depressed prior to the trigger or else it is broken.

*edit*

And ALWAYS disconnect the air supply before attempting to clear a jammed gun.

the tool has back pressure on it within the line going up through the handle.... pulling the trigger opens a valve which lets the air into the nailer head / motor..... as soon as you disconnect the hose the air will come back out though the male fitting thats that hiss / pop sound when you disconnect
