Customer Questions & Answers

How do I order parts to repair my brad nailer BN 200 A

Asked by: Skip
For some reason, Porter Cable's website has been very slow and in some cases nor loading pages this past couple weeks. Having been a web designer, I spoke to their tech department who advices it was the case and staff can't even access certain pages. So, viewing, buying products, searching for and buying parts on Porter's site might be slow to impossible until fixed. I'd call them and have customer support search, quote and take your order, or Google for other sites that sell Porter parts, like Home Depot, Amazon, and various tool and tool parts sites. Good luck TheNailGuy

Nailer jammed on first shot and I can't get the brad out. Does it take metric allen wrench to get the top of nailer off

I bought this as a package deal from home depot. It had no reviews my questions are is it defective or any recalls. How do I get it fixed
Asked by: Dave
It should be easy. First unplug the nailer from the hose so there's no chance it could fire and hurt you. Also, while I found it easy and logical, there's lots of info available to you. The instructions, articles online and a number of videos on YouTube. And my comments here :) My nailer I think is identical to yours, but mine came with 2 others in a Porter combo set with a compressor. On mine on the shaft there's an orange plastic barrel attached to a small black metal dowel which upon jiggling it, I saw I could open up the "barrel" of the nailer where the nails come down and into your project. Once I opened that are, the stuck nail was easy to grab with small needle nose pliers and remove. The nail wasn't even really stuck or jammed and was more "off track" so by opening up the "barrel" the nail basically fell out. The I simply moved the nose and barrel back together and the nailer was good as new. This is my first nailer and only a few weeks old and I figured this out easily. I was impressed with that. The jamming was I think because i started nailing too fast and at an odd angle. TIPS: 1. The compressor you have, like mine, might say "oil free" but your nailer isn't. But that's a breeze too. If you don't have a bottle, all hardwares have compressor nailer oil or similar name. There is oil for the compressor and for the nailers, be sure to get the nailer oil. A few ounce bottle at HD cost $3. After each use, unplug the hose from the nailer exposing the nipple and simply put 2 drops into the hole of the nipple logically while the head of the nailer is pointed downward so the nipple is too and the oil can run into the nailer. On the next use, the air will distribute that small amount of oil into the nailer where it needs to go. This recommendation is in the instructions and seems like smart advice so I do it religiously. 2. When nailing, go at a reasonable pace. It doesn't need to be even as in synchronized and in rhythm. I mean just don't pull the trigger on top of the previous pull. Leave a space between each pull. The time I pulled twice right after each other I jammed my 16 gauge. So don't get carried away. Remember it's a machine but needs a second to "regroup" after each nailing. Hope that helps, The Nail Guy

Customer Reviews

18-Gauge Pneumatic Brad Nailer is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Brad nailer This is a good Brad nailer for a homeowner, especially for 70 bucks. I have a cheap Brad nailer from Harbor Freight ($14) which works fine except it has a rectangular metal foot so it makes a huge dent in the work piece. I have a Bostich which would be good except it jams every other shot and it has to be almost dismantled to clear the jam (5 minutes plus). That is aggravating. This Brad nailer works great and hasn't jammed yet. It is designed to be easy to clear but I haven't needed to test that because it doesn't jam. I'm driving 2" brads through crown molding into old, very hard, douglas fir studs, like I said no jams yet which makes me very happy. The plastic foot leaves no dent, just a small hole from the Brad like the Bostich which keeps jamming. I intended to buy a more expensive nailer but the reviews said this is a good one so I bought it and, like I said, I am very happy with it. The only thing missing is the air connection doesn't swivel but that hasn't been a problem.
