Customer Questions & Answers

does it only shoot clipped head nails

Asked by: ww
The Grip Rite nails sold at Home Depot are full head nails. However, they have an offset that allows the clipped head nailer to shoot full head nails. I used a couple of thousand nails with no problems.

will this gun shoot a framing pasload nail ?

I have boxes of pasload nails and need to use them up. I tried them with a used porter cable but the slot was too narrow or slot was damaged.they would not load into gun..
Asked by: crusty
Yes, just use the paper wrapped ones. Can use full or clipped heads.

What is the proper way to lubricate this nailer?

Most require oil to operate. Does the framing nail require oil and how much and where?
Asked by: Dave
I just squirt a few drops where the air hose attaches. I add a couple of drops of oil every time I insert a new rack of nails.

I have a fc 350 a nail gun from porter cable since 2005,is this the new model that replace my model and can I used 30 degree nail on my gun since it seems that home depot only carry 34 degrees on line and if there is a brand of nails I can used thanks
Asked by: clay
I also have a FC-350, the owners manual clearly states to use 34 degree clipped head. These nails are not readily available. The FC-350B has the same specs for nails with some upgrades to the gun. I can tell you that mine will shoot Paslode 3 in, round head, ring shanks with no problems at all. If you check the angle on the Paslode even though the box states 30 degrees, it measures out to 34 degrees. Paslode P/N 650385

3-1/2 in. 30 Degree to 34 Degree Clipped-Head Framing Nailer is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 51.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the price I have about 8hrs of use on this. After finding the best pressure setting on my compressor for this gun, it worked flawlessly. No mis-fires at all yet. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pro grade industry standard quality After a lot of research i bought this item. First i purchased the 21* model FR350B and returned it for the FC350B. FR is for Round head and FC is for Clipped head nails. However the FC350B uses both round or clipped in the paper collated form. This makes your gun compatible with many on the market and out in use in the field today. Helpful when buying and sharing nails with other friends/contractors. After researching the paper collated nails; they are said to be safer as the paper gets desintigrated in the worked product. Whereas the plastic on the 21* FR nails get lodged in the mechanism or ejected. Even with goggles or protective eye wear you don't want to have to think about cast off while working...either for the user or others and you certainly don't want to spend time unjaming your gun. The FC is 30* angle which sets the nail cartridge closer to the handle providing more compact space to fire in close spaces. You'll appreciate it when its needed, but seems second nature while working with it. Both models come with a case, rafter/belt hook, two cushion heads, and adjustable exhaust. Great accessories for the price that many other manufactures lack. Get the industrial fittings for your compressor hook up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great nail gun I had been looking for an excuse to buy a framing nailer for some time and finally justified it for doing some fairly extensive fence repairs after trying the old hammer and nail method in prior years. This nail gun is easy to use and a real time-saver. Can't wait for the next project...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pro Grade Nail Gun @ Killer Price I have a large assortment of Porter Cable air nailers including the FR350A but when I was out shopping on Black Friday, I could not believe that they were practically giving away this gun for a buck-29. I couldn't get this thing in the basket quick enough and I've been using it every day since. To compare the two guns, the FR350A is a workhorse but this gun can run circles around it on every level. The FR is a round head only using plastic collated 22 deg nails and weighs ~15 pounds. The FC will take both round or clipped head paper collated in the 30-34 deg range, weighs ~7.5 pounds and has has been redesigned to drive 3.5" nails in engineered lumber. The gun comes equiped with Tool-lessTrigger Selection, Tool-less Depth Adjustment, Framers Hook, Low-Nail Lockout, Case, Oil, Allen Wrench, & Manual. As of today, you can still get this gun at this incredible price but you will have to do some looking as most stores sold out quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great Replaced my deck with this porter cable 3 1/2 clipped head framing nailer and a ryobi 6 gal pancake compressor. The gun never jammed. Drove the nails completely, and never misfired. Couldn't be happier with my purchase.
