SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
EYE PROTECTION which conforms to ANSI specifications and provides protection
against flying particles both from the FRONT and SIDE should ALWAYS be worn
by the operator and others in the work area when loading, operating or servicing
this tool. Eye protection is required to guard against flying fasteners and debris,
which could cause severe eye injury.
The employer and/or user must ensure that proper eye protection is worn. Eye
protection equipment must conform to the requirements of the American National
Standards Institute, ANSI Z87.1-1989 and provide both frontal and side protection.
NOTE: Non-side shielded spectacles and face shields alone do not provide adequate protection.
CAUTION: ADDITIONAL SAFETY PROTECTION will be required in some environments. For example, the working area may include exposure to noise level which
can lead to hearing damage. The employer and user must ensure that any necessary
hearing protection is provided and used by the operator and others in the work area.
Some environments will require the use of head protection equipment. When
required, the employer and user must ensure that head protection conforming to
ANSI Z89.1 1986 is used.
AIR SUPPLY AND CONNECTIONS
Do not use oxygen, combustible gases, or bottled gases as a power source for this
tool as tool may explode, possibly causing injury.
Do not use supply sources which can potentially exceed 200 P.S.I.G. as tool may
burst, possibly causing injury.
The connector on the tool must not hold pressure when air supply is disconnected. If a wrong fitting is used, the tool can remain charged with air after disconnecting and thus will be able to drive a fastener even after the air line is disconnected possibly causing injury.
Do not pull trigger or depress contact arm while connected to the air supply as the
tool may cycle, possibly causing injury.
Always disconnect air supply: 1.) Before making adjustments; 2.) When servicing
the tool; 3.) When clearing a jam; 4.) When tool is not in use; 5.) When moving to a
different work area, as accidental actuation may occur, possibly causing injury.
LOADING TOOL
When loading tool: 1.) Never place a hand or any part of body in fastener discharge area of tool; 2.) Never point tool at anyone; 3.) Do not pull the trigger or
depress the trip as accidental actuation may occur, possibly causing injury.
OPERATION
Always handle the tool with care: 1.) Never engage in horseplay; 2.) Never pull
the trigger unless nose is directed toward the work; 3.) Keep others a safe distance from the tool while tool is in operation as accidental actuation may occur,
possibly causing injury.
The operator must not hold the trigger pulled on contact arm tools except during fastening operation as serious injury could result if the trip accidentally contacted someone or something, causing the tool to cycle.
Keep hands and body away from the discharge area of the tool. A contact arm tool
may bounce from the recoil of driving a fastener and an unwanted second fastener may be driven possibly causing injury.
Check operation of the contact arm mechanism frequently. Do not use the tool if
the arm is not working correctly as accidental driving of a fastener may result. Do
not interfere with the proper operation of the contact arm mechanism.
Do not drive fasteners on top of other fasteners or with the tool at an overly steep
angle as this may cause deflection of fasteners which could cause injury.
Do not drive fasteners close to the edge of the work piece as the wood may split,
allowing the fastener to be deflected possibly causing injury.
MAINTAINING THE TOOL
When working on air tools note the warnings in this manual and use extra care
when evaluating problem tools.

TOOL AIR FITTING:
This tool uses a free-flow connector plug, 1/4” N.P.T. The minimum inside diameter should be
.200” (5mm). The fitting must be capable of discharging tool air pressure when disconnected from
the air supply.
OPERATING PRESSURE:
The operating pressure of the 600, 700 & 800 tools is 70 to 120 p.s.i. (4.9 to 8.4 kg/cm2).
Select the operating pressure within this range for best fastener performance.
DO NOT EXCEED THIS RECOMMENDED OPERATING PRESSURE.
AIR CONSUMPTION:
Series 600 requires 2.3 cubic feet per minute (.065 cubic meters per minute) of free air to
operate at the rate of 100 fasteners per minute, at 80 p.s.i. (5.6kg/cm2).
Series 700 requires 3.9 cubic feet per minute. (.110 cubic meters per minute) of free air to
operate at a rate of 100 fasteners per minute, at 80 p.s.i. (5.6 kg/cm2).
Series 800 requires 4.8 cubic feet per minute. (.136 cubic meters per minute) of free air to
operate at a rate of 100 fasteners per minute, at 80 p.s.i. (5.6 kg/cm2).
For Series 600, 700 & 800 tools, take the actual rate at which the tool will be run to determine the
amount of air required. For instance, if your fastener usage averages 50 fasteners per minute, you
need 50% of the c.f.m. listed above which is required to operate the tool at 100 fasteners per minute.
STANLEY-BOSTITCH OFFERS THREE TYPES OF OPERATION FOR THIS SERIES TOOL.
OPERATION
CONTACT TRIP
The common operating procedure on “Contact Trip” tools is for the operator to contact the work to
actuate the trip mechanism while keeping the trigger pulled, thus driving a fastener each time the
work is contacted. This will allow rapid fastener placement on many jobs, such as sheathing, decking
and pallet assembly. All pneumatic tools are subject to recoil when driving fasteners. The tool may
bounce, releasing the trip, and if unintentionally allowed to recontact the work surface with the trigger
still actuated (finger still holding trigger pulled) an unwanted second fastener will be driven.
SEQUENTIAL TRIP
The Sequential Trip requires the operator to hold the tool against the work before pulling the
trigger. This makes accurate fastener placement easier, for instance on framing, toe nailing and
crating applications. The Sequential Trip allows exact fastener location without the possibility of
driving a second fastener on recoil, as described under “Contact Trip”. The Sequential Trip Tool
has a positive safety advantage because it will not accidentally drive a fastener if the tool is
contacted against the work – or anything else – while the operator is holding the trigger pulled.
TRIGGER OPERATED
The Trigger Operated model is cycled by actuation of the trigger only. This model does not have a
Contact Arm and is intended for use only where a Contact Arm CANNOT be used to satisfy the
requirements of the application.
The Trigger Operated tool will cycle each time the trigger is actuated.

AIR SUPPLY AND CONNECTIONS
Do not use oxygen, combustible gases, or bottled gases as a power
source for this tool as tool may explode, possibly causing injury.
FITTINGS:
Install a male plug on the tool which is free flowing and which will release air pressure from the
tool when disconnected from the supply source.
HOSES:
Air hoses should have a minimum of 150 p.s.i. (10.6 kg/cm2) working pressure rating or 150
percent of the maximum pressure that could be produced in the air system. The supply hose
should contain a fitting that will provide “quick disconnecting” from the male plug on the tool.
SUPPLY SOURCE:
Use only clean regulated compressed air as a power source for this tool. NEVER USE
OXYGEN, COMBUSTIBLE GASES, OR BOTTLED GASES, AS A POWER SOURCE FOR
THIS TOOL AS TOOL MAY EXPLODE.
REGULATOR:
A pressure regulator with an operating pressure of 0 - 125 p.s.i. (0 - 8.79 KG/CM2) is required
to control the operatiing pressure for safe operation of this tool. Do not connect this tool to air
pressure which can potentially exceed 200 p.s.i. (14 KG/CM2)as tool may fracture or burst,
possibly causing injury.
OPERATING PRESSURE:
Do not exceed recommended maximum operating pressure as tool wear will be greatly
increased. The air supply must be capable of maintaining the operating pressure at the tool.
Pressure drops in the air supply can reduce the tool’s driving power. Refer to “TOOL
SPECIFICATIONS” for setting the correct operating pressure for the tool.
FILTER:
Dirt and water in the air supply are major causes of wear in pneumatic tools. A filter will help
to get the best performance and minimum wear from the tool. The filter must have adequate
flow capacity for the specific installation. The filter has to be kept clean to be effective in providing clean compressed air to the tool. Consult the manufacturer’s instructions on proper
maintenance of your filter. A dirty and clogged filter will cause a pressure drop which will
reduce the tool’s performance.
LUBRICATION
Frequent, but not excessive, lubrication is required for best performance. Oil added through the air line
connection will lubricate the internal parts. Use STANLEY-BOSTITCH Air Tool Lubricant, Mobil Velocite
#10, or equivalent. Do not use detergent oil or additives as these lubricants will cause accelerated
wear to the seals and bumpers in the tool, resulting in poor tool performance and frequent tool
maintenance.
If no airline lubricator is used, add oil during use into the air fitting on the tool once or twice a day.
Only a few drops of oil at a time is necessary. Too much oil will only collect inside the tool and will be
noticeable in the exhaust cycle.
COLD WEATHER OPERATION:
For cold weather operation, near and below freezing, the moisture in the air line may freeze and prevent tool operation. We recommend the use of STANLEY-BOSTITCH WINTER FORMULA air tool
lubricant or permanent antifreeze (ethylene glycol) as a cold weather lubricant.
CAUTION: Do not store tools in a cold weather environment to prevent frost or ice formation
on the tools operating valves and mechanisms that could cause tool failure.
NOTE: Some commercial air line drying liquids are harmful to “O”-rings and seals – do not use
these low temperature air dryers without checking compatibility.

BEFORE HANDLING OR OPERATING THIS TOOL:
I. READ AND UNDERSTAND THE WARNINGS CONTAINED IN
THIS MANUAL.
II. REFER TO “TOOL SPECIFICATIONS” IN THIS MANUAL TO
IDENTIFY THE OPERATING SYSTEM ON YOUR TOOL.
There are three available systems on STANLEY-BOSTITCH pneumatic tools. They are:
1. TRIGGER OPERATION 2. CONTACT TRIP OPERATION 3. SEQUENTIAL TRIP OPERATION
OPERATION
1. TRIGGER OPERATION
A TRIGGER OPERATED tool requires a single action to drive a fastener. Each time the
trigger is pulled the tool will drive a fastener. The trigger operated model is intended for
use only when a contact trip or sequential trip cannot be used due to the requirements of
the application.
2. CONTACT TRIP OPERATION
The CONTACT TRIP MODEL tool contains a contact trip that operates in conjunction with
the trigger to drive a fastener. There are two methods of operation to drive fasteners with
a contact trip tool.
A. SINGLE FASTENER PLACEMENT: To operate the tool in this manner, first
position the contact trip on the work surface, WITHOUT PULLING THE TRIGGER.
Depress the contact trip until the nose touches the work surface and then pull the
trigger to drive a fastener. Do not press the tool against the work with extra force.
Instead, allow the tool to recoil off the work surface to avoid a second unwanted
fastener. Remove your finger from the trigger after each operation.
B. RAPID FASTENER OPERATION: To operate the tool in this manner, hold the
tool with the contact trip pointing towards but not touching the work surface. Pull
the trigger and then tap the contact trip against the work surface using a bouncing
motion. Each depression of the contact trip will cause a fastener to be driven.
The operator must not hold the trigger pulled on contact trip tools
except during fastening operation, as serious injury could result if the
trip accidentally contacted someone or something, causing the tool to
cycle.
Keep hands and body away from the discharge area of the tool. A
contact trip tool may bounce from the recoil of driving a fastener and
an unwanted second fastener may be driven, possibly causing injury.
3. SEQUENTIAL TRIP OPERATION:
The SEQUENTIAL TRIP MODEL contains a contact trip that operates in conjunction
with the trigger to drive a fastener. To operate a sequential trip tool, first position the
contact trip on the work surface WITHOUT PULLING THE TRIGGER. Depress the
contact trip and then pull the trigger to drive a fastener. As long as the contact trip is
contacting the work and is held depressed, the tool will drive a fastener each time the
trigger is depressed. If the contact trip is allowed to leave the work surface, the
sequence described above must be repeated to drive another fastener.
-7-

MAINTAINING THE PNEUMATIC TOOL
When working on air tools, note the warnings in this manual and use extra care
evaluating problem tools.
CAUTION: Pusher spring (constant force spring). Caution must be used when working with
the spring assembly. The spring is wrapped around, but not attached to, a roller. If the spring
is extended beyond its length, the end will come off the roller and the spring will roll up with a
snap, with a chance of pinching your hand. Also the edges of the spring are very thin and
could cut. Care must also be taken to insure no permanent kinks are put in the spring as this
will reduce the springs force.
REPLACEMENT PARTS:
STANLEY-BOSTITCH replacement parts are recommended. Do not use modified parts or parts
which will not give equivalent performance to the original equipment.
ASSEMBLY PROCEDURE FOR SEALS:
When repairing a tool, make sure the internal parts are clean and lubricated. Use Parker “O”-LUBE
or equivalent on all “O”-rings. Coat each “O”-ring with “O”-LUBE before assembling. Use a small
amount of oil on all moving surfaces and pivots. After reassembly add a few drops of
STANLEY-BOSTITCH Air Tool Lubricant through the air line fitting before testing.
AIR SUPPLY-PRESSURE AND VOLUME:
Air volume is as important as air pressure. The air volume supplied to the tool may be inadequate
because of undersize fittings and hoses, or from the effects of dirt and water in the system.
Restricted air flow will prevent the tool from receiving an adequate volume of air, even though the
pressure reading is high. The results will be slow operation, misfeeds or reduced driving power.
Before evaluating tool problems for these symptoms, trace the air supply from the tool to the supply
source for restrictive connectors, swivel fittings, low points containing water and anything else that
would prevent full volume flow of air to the tool.

QUICK RELEASE MAGAZINE
The 600,700 & 800 series staplers contain a Quick Release Magazine feature. The magazine is
spring loaded to reduce jamming. When a jam does occur, a quick release mechanism at the rear
of the magazine allows the magazine to move back, in order to clear the jam.
ALWAYS DISCONNECT AIR SUPPLY BEFORE CLEARING A JAMMED FASTENER.
If a jam does occur, locate the latch at the rear of the magazine (fig.1). Pull down on the latch to
open (fig.2), and rotate it clockwise 1/4 turn (fig.3). Pull back on the latch (fig.4). This will pull the
magazine back to clear the jam. After removing the jammed fastener, push on the latch, rotate it
1/4 turn counterclockwise and push up to close.
