SKU 98464
Tool use and care
a.
Use clamps or another practical
way to secure and support the
workpiece to a stable platform.
Holding the work by hand or against
the body is unstable and is able to
lead to loss of control.
b.
Do not force the tool. Use the
correct tool for the application. The
correct tool will do the job better and
safer at the rate for which the tool is
designed.
c.
Do not use the tool if the trigger
does not turn the tool on or off.
Any tool that cannot be controlled
with the trigger is dangerous and
must be repaired.
d.
Disconnect the tool from the air
source before making any adjustments, changing accessories, or
storing the tool. Such preventive
safety measures reduce the risk of
starting the tool unintentionally. Turn
off and detach the air supply, safely
discharge any residual air pressure,
and release the throttle and/or turn
the switch to its off position before
leaving the work area.
e.
Store the tool when it is idle out of
reach of children and other untrained persons. A tool is dangerous
in the hands of untrained users.
f.
Maintain the tool with care. Keep a
cutting tool sharp and clean. A properly maintained tool, with sharp cutting edges reduces the risk of binding
and is easier to control.

operate accidentally after the air
supply is disconnected.
Note: Air flow, and therefore tool performance, can be hindered by undersized air supply components.
1.
Incorporate an in-line oiler, shut-off
valve, regulator with pressure gauge,
and filter for best service, as shown in
the diagram above. An in-line shutoff valve is an important safety
device because it controls the air
supply even if the air hose is ruptured.
3.
The air hose must be long enough
to reach the work area with enough
extra length to allow free movement
while working.
4.
Make sure the tool’s throttle or switch
is in the off position; refer to Operation section for description of controls.
5.
Close the in-line safety valve between the compressor and the tool.
6.
Turn on the air compressor according
to the manufacturer’s directions and
allow it to build up pressure until it
cycles off.
7.
Adjust the air compressor’s output
regulator so that the air output is
enough to properly power the tool,
but the output will not exceed the
tool’s maximum air pressure at any
time. Adjust the pressure gradually,
while checking the air output gauge
to set the right pressure range.
8.
Inspect the air connections for leaks.
Repair any leaks found.
9.
If the tool will not be used at this
time, turn off and detach the air supply, safely discharge any residual air
pressure, and release the throttle
and/or turn the switch to its off position to prevent accidental operation.
Note: If an automatic oiler system is not
used, add a few drops of Pneumatic
Tool Oil to the airline connection before operation. Add a few more drops
after each hour of continual use.
2.
Attach an air hose to the compressor’s air outlet. Connect the air hose
to the air inlet of the tool. Other components, such as a connector and
quick coupler, will make operation
more efficient, but are not required.

Maintenance (For All Nailers)
1.
Daily - Air Supply Maintenance:
Every day, perform maintenance on
the air supply according to the component manufacturers’ instructions.
The lubricator’s oil level needs to be
maintained and the moisture filter
must be regularly drained. Performing routine maintenance on the air
supply will allow the tool to operate
more safely and will also reduce wear
on the tool.
2.
Quarterly (every 3 months) - Tool Disassembly, Cleaning, and Inspection:
Have the internal mechanism
cleaned, inspected, and lubricated by
a qualified technician. If the vanes
need replacement, all vanes should
be replaced as a set.
3.
Inspect the air supply Screen that is
located in the End Cap before each use, and clean or replace as necessary. Dirt and water in the air supply
Screen are major causes of pneumatic tool wear. Use a filter in the
compressed air system for better
performance and longer tool life. The
filter must have adequate flow capacity for the specific application.
7.
Store Nailer in a clean, dry, safe location out of reach of children.
If you detect any
air leaks, power
loss, the Nailer/Stapler skips driving, drives too deep, or not deep
enough, take the Nailer/Stapler to a
qualified service technician.
Please refer to the Troubleshooting chart on the next page for additional maintenance procedures.
4. Inspect all of the nuts and screws and
make sure they are securely fastened.
5.
Periodically lubricate the Nailer’s driving mechanism and magazine with
a light oil. Wipe down with a clean
cloth. Never use gasoline or flammable solvents to clean the tool.
6.
Clean the external parts of the Nailer
with a clean cloth and mild detergent
or non-flammable solvent. Then, dry.
