Pneumatic Nailer Question


I have several Bostitch pneumatic nailers. I'm getting oil splatter on my work from my finish nailers. Been using 2 - 3 drops of oil once a day for light work.

I have a Bostitch N62FN which is described as "oil free". Trying to figure out what that means. Instructions say nothing at all about using oil. Is this nail gun able to function without any oil being needed? If not, what does "oil free" mean? I have been using oil with it but if it is not needed, it will keep my work cleaner.

I've submitted an inquiry to Bostitch, no response yet.

Appreciate any help.

Thanks, Ed

oil free means no oil required , may take some time before oil is all gone

Re: Pneumatic Nailer Question


until you get most of the oil gone, wrap a cloth around
the exhaust to catch the stuff that comes out.

Re: Pneumatic Nailer Question


The 62 has a ceramic piston liner, I believe and requires no lubrication. My Senco finish nailer is the same way. Unless you are pounding a box of nails a day, that two to three drops is too much on a daily basis. If you are only building a box a day and oil it every day, it will build up oil and leak like a Harley.
