Questions & Answers


Can Bostitch 1/4 inch staples be used in this stapler

Asked by Fred October 11, 2020

Hi Fred, No, the minimum length is 1/2"

Does this work for upholstery?

Asked by chris78 October 10, 2020

i wouldnt think so due the the crown is only 1/4 '' and the settings cant go that soft not to blow thru the upholstery .

Can i use this compressor with a power sander?

Asked by Joeg October 7, 2020

The DWFP55126 is for use with pneumatic tools that require between 1-165 psi for operation.

Can I charge this compressor for about 3 or 4 minutes after turning it on, or does it take longer...

Asked by Matt September 25, 2020

You can plug the compressor in. Longer it is plugged in, the fuller the tank will be (until completely full). You don't need to have the unit plugged in to provide air to the air line; until the tank is empty.

I need instructions on how to start this compressor for use with a Brad Nailer, and instructions ...

Asked by Matt September 25, 2020

Please contact your local Home Depot or DEWALT at 1-800-433-9258 for further assistance.

Would this work for 2” w 4 “ w 4’ fence wire

Asked by Fenceguy August 6, 2020

Yes it will, I used it for the same thing in the spring and it is holding up well. Very pleased with the performance.

will this work for sandblasting?

Asked by nate August 4, 2020

I would suggest a larger compressor for sandblasting

Can it be used to blow out a sprinkler system?

Asked by Thom August 2, 2020

It would depend on the pipe size,length

How are the staples loaded in this gun?

Asked by Jim July 15, 2020

there is a button on the bottom/tab on the bottom that is pressed, and the clip will slide down. the staples are put in on a "rack" that holds the staples. slide up the clip that popped down, connect air hose and you are ready. **CAUTION** this gun has the option to shoot only when the yellow nipple is pressed down, OR all the time. meaning you can hold the trigger and if you touch your leg or any object it will shoot!

Is this in stock in three rivers mi store

Asked by Sanra July 4, 2020

Excellent item for simple home-based operations
I chose the Dewalt 6-gallon, pancake-style compressor to replace a small, inefficient 1-gallon unit I have used for several years. The extra capacity in this model is evident when you start using your tools; I now have full pressure for a longer work period before the pump has to kick on to supply more air. It is very sturdy with rubber feet on the bottom to keep it in place yet it is still light enough to be moved where needed by the comfortable handle. Getting the included brad nailer was a bonus since I have an upcoming project with lots of trim to install. The magazine capacity for this nailer is 100, 18-gauge fasteners ranging between 5/8-inch up to 2-1/8-inch long. This lightweight tool (2.6 pounds) has an adjustable depth setting to allow the fasteners to be set flush with the finished surface or slightly recessed and/or can be set to bump/contact action for rapid nailing on flat surfaces. Should a fastener become jammed in the nosepiece, just flip open the latch on the nose door to remove. Lastly, I had to smile when I noticed that Dewalt has even included a pencil sharpener built into the belt hook.

Doesn't hold air
It does everything it's designed to do EXCEPT hold air for more than 24 hours. I will charge it up to about 150 psi, and 24 hours later there is no pressure. Every air compressor I have owned has held air, so it's ready to use without "filling". I am going to attempt to return despite not having the box... Silly

I love it. It doesn't penetrate 1/4" ply or 1/8" skins like A pin nailer does. Just by adjusting your air pressure a little and holds great even when glued.

Received air compressor and it came "plug & play", fired right up, built up to 155 Lbs and shut off. After reading all comments about leaking air, I let it set for over a week before actually using it. One week later, it still had 100 Lb air still in tank, very happy about that part.Used it today and worked like a champ!. I took off sprocket and final drive motor off a mini excavator, including a couple bottom rollers that had been on since 2005 (new). All bolts also had locktight which took more power to take off. (23) tough bolts total. Very happy with this compressor. Hopefully it will last many years. The above job will be it's toughest chore that I will ever use it for, a happy camper!, so far, so good. I would recommend to any homeowner or small shop owner. The little extra boost with the PSI made the difference from the "other average size compressors" that I researched.

used it for 2 weeks in a cabinet shop. only thing is the safety trigger. gun has to be perpendicular to the wood or it wont shoot, kind of annoying. what i like is that it will not dry fire when you run out of staples.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
I had been meaning to get a smaller compressor to use with my nailers for some time now, to get away from lugging around my large wheeled one, and this DeWalt model fit the bill nicely. This unit is light and compact, making it well-suited for work up on the roof, and provides ample CFM's to run my framing and finish guns. The unit arrived well-packaged, with no damage, and it's ready to run right out of the box. From totally empty, it takes just under 3.5 minutes to fill. It weighs something around 30 pounds, and with it's large carry handle and compactness, it's easy enough to lug up a ladder, or throw in the back of the truck. It's also fairly quiet - certainly a good bit quieter than the one I have been using - making it ideal for indoor use. The tripod feet, with their rubber boots, make it very stable on pitched surfaces. I did initially have some trouble getting the hose couplings to insert into the couplers deep enough to stay, but that seemed to correct itself after a bit. I must admit that the ones I'm using are discount-store quality, so they may be the issue. I did fill the tank and leave it sit overnight, and noted no discernible drop in pressure. With the features that I've touched on - the unit's compactness and portability, and it's relative quietness of operation - this unit will be perfect for my intended use, pneumatic nailing. While it also may see some use in filling tires, this unit is in no way designed or intended for use with things like cut-off tools, sanders, grinders and such. Stay with tools that don't exceed the CFM ratings of this compressor and I think you will be pleased.
