Preparing the tool
Tool lubrication
This finish nailer requires lubrication BEFORE initial use and
BEFORE and AFTER each additional use throughout its life.
1. Disconnect the air hose, turn the finish nailer so the air
inlet (3) is facing up. Place 3-4 drops of non detergent
oil into the air inlet. Do not use air tool oil as it contains
solvents which will damage the nailer’s internal parts.
2. Lubricate the drive safety cover & slide guide (8), trigger
(2) and magazine slide mechanism periodically.
3. After lubrication, run brad nailer briefly. Wipe off any
excess oil from the adjustable deflector exhaust (1).
The work surface can become damaged by excessive
lubrication.
4. Finish nailer repairs must be done by a qualified and
experienced service dealer.
Place a few drops of
non-detergent oil into air
inlet before each use.
Apply a few drops
of oil to the trigger
mechanism.
Apply a thin coat of
lightweight grease to
safety slide guides.
Apply a few drops of oil
to sliding mechanism of
the magazine.
12
Loading & unloading the fasteners:
1. Always disconnect the finish nailer to the air hose before
loading fasteners.
Operation
Operating the tool:
Firing mechanism:
This tool operates on a single sequential firing system.
Where to use finishing nailer.
Finishing nailer/staplers are used mainly in medium to light
duty applications. The use of T-Brad finishing nails enable
the nail heads to be countersunk under the surface of
your work surface. This is important where the ‘finish’ or
appearance of the workpiece is a priority.
Some additional important safety applications are as follows:
1. Fire fasteners into work surface only, never into materials
too hard to penetrate such as concrete and steel.
2. Do not drive fasteners on top of other fasteners, or with
the tool at too steep an angle as the fasteners may
ricochet causing personal injury.
3. Do not drive fasteners close to the edge of the workpiece.
The workpiece is likely to split allowing the fastener to fly
free or ricochet causing personal injury.
Checking the safety strike element:
1. Disconnect the air hose from the brad nailer and remove
all fasteners from the magazine.
2. Make sure the trigger and the strike nose move freely up
and down.
3. Reconnect air hose to the finish nailer.
4. Push the strike element against the work surface without
depressing the trigger. The finish nailer must NOT cycle.
5. Remove the finish nailer from the work surface, the strike
element should return to its original position. Pull the
trigger, the brad nailer must NOT cycle. If it cycles DO
NOT use it.
2. Press and pull the latch (4)
back until it catches onto the
back of the nail magazine
cover (5).
3. Insert a row of quality T-Brad
finishing fasteners into the
magazine. Make sure the
pointed ends of the fasteners
are resting on the bottom of
the magazine.
IMPORTANT. Make sure
the fasteners are not rusted,
damaged or dirty.
4. Push the nail magazine cover
(5) forward until the latch
meets with the nails.
5. Always disconnect the air hose before unloading
fasteners.
13
Adjusting the exhaust direction:
1. The finish nailer is equipped
with an adjustable direction
exhaust deflector (1). Simply
adjust the directional exhaust
deflector so that the exhaust
air blast will be directed away
from the operator. Grasp the
deflector and rotate it to the
desired position for the current
application.
Adjusting the fastening depth:
1. Regulate the air pressure to 120 PSI at the compressor.
2. Connect the air hose to the nailer and test for penetration
by driving fasteners into a sample piece of wood. If the
fasteners do not achieve the desired depth, rotate the
depth adjustment thumb wheel (10) until the desired
depth is achieved.
Clearing a jam:
1. Disconnect the air supply
from the nailer and remove all
fasteners from the magazine.
2. Press the quick release latch
(9) which will disengage
the driver safety cover (8).
Remove the driver safety
cover (8) so the jammed
fastener is exposed.
3. Remove the jammed fastener,
using screwdriver or long nose
pliers if required.
4. Close back the driver safety
cover tightly.
5. Test the finish nailer.
Air source
This tool is designed to operate on clean, dry, compressed
air at regulated pressures between 75 and 120 PSI.
The preferred system would include a filter, a pressure
regulator, and an automatic oiler located as close to the tool
as possible.
All compressed air contains moisture and other
contaminates that are detrimental to internal components
of the tool. An air line filter will remove most of these
contaminates and significantly prolong the life of the tool.
If an in-line oiler is not available, place 3 - 4 drops of non
detergent oil into the tool’s air inlet at the beginning of each
workday.
DANGER. All air line components (hoses, connectors,
filters, regulators, etc.) must have a minimum working
pressure rating of at least 120 PSI or 150% of maximum
system potential, whichever is greater.

Preparing the tool
Tool lubrication
This brad nailer/stapler requires lubrication BEFORE
initial use and BEFORE and AFTER each additional use
throughout its life.
1. Disconnect the air hose, turn the brad nailer/stapler
so the air inlet (3) is facing up. Place 3-4 drops of non
detergent oil into the air inlet. Do not use air tool oil as it
contains solvents which will damage the nailer/stapler’s
internal parts.
2. Lubricate the drive safety cover & slide guide (8), trigger
(2) and magazine slide mechanism periodically.
3. After lubrication, run brad nailer/stapler briefly. Wipe off
any excess oil from the adjustable deflector exhaust (1).
The work surface can become damaged by excessive
lubrication.
4. Brad nailer/stapler repairs must be done by a qualified
and experienced service dealer.
Place a few drops of
non-detergent oil into air
inlet before each use.
Apply a few drops
of oil to the trigger
mechanism.
Apply a thin coat of
lightweight grease to
safety slide guides.
Apply a few drops of oil
to sliding mechanism of
the magazine.
12
Loading & unloading the fasteners:
1. Always disconnect the brad nailer/stapler to the air hose
before loading fasteners.
Operation
Operating the tool:
Firing mechanism:
This tool operates on a single sequential firing system.
Where to use brad nailer/stapler
Brad nailer/staplers are used mainly in medium to light duty
applications. The use of brad nails and staples enables the
nail heads to be countersunk under the surface of your work
surface. This is important where the ‘finish’ or appearance of
the workpiece is a priority.
Some additional important safety applications are as follows:
1. Fire fasteners into work surface only, never into materials
too hard to penetrate such as concrete and steel.
2. Do not drive fasteners on top of other fasteners, or with
the tool at too steep an angle as the fasteners may
ricochet causing personal injury.
3. Do not drive fasteners close to the edge of the workpiece.
The workpiece is likely to split allowing the fastener to fly
free or ricochet causing personal injury.
Checking the safety strike element:
1. Disconnect the air hose from the brad nailer/stapler and
remove all fasteners from the magazine.
2. Make sure the trigger and the strike nose move freely up
and down.
3. Reconnect air hose to the brad nailer/stapler.
4. Push the strike element against the work surface
without depressing the trigger. The brad nailer/stapler
must NOT cycle.
5. Remove the brad nailer/stapler from the work surface, the
strike element should return to its original position. Pull
the trigger, the brad nailer/stapler must NOT cycle.
If it cycles DO NOT use it.
2. Press and pull the latch (4)
back until it catches onto the
back of the nail magazine
cover (5).
3. Insert a row of quality brad
fasteners into the magazine.
Make sure the pointed ends
of the fasteners are resting on
the bottom of the magazine.
IMPORTANT. Make sure the fasteners are not rusted,
damaged or dirty.
4. Push the nail magazine cover (5) forward until the latch
meets with the nails/staples.
5. Always disconnect the air hose before unloading
fasteners.
13
Adjusting the exhaust direction:
1. The brad nailer/stapler is
equipped with an adjustable
direction exhaust deflector (1).
Simply adjust the directional
exhaust deflector so that
the exhaust air blast will
be directed away from the
operator. Grasp the deflector
and rotate it to the desired
position for the current application.
Adjusting the fastening depth:
1. Regulate the air pressure to 120 PSI at the compressor.
2. Connect the air hose to the nailer/stapler and test for
penetration by driving fasteners into a sample piece of
wood. If the fasteners do not achieve the desired depth,
rotate the depth adjustment thumb wheel (10) until the
desired depth is achieved.
Clearing a jam:
1. Disconnect the air supply
from the nailer/stapler and
remove all fasteners from the
magazine.
2. Remove the 3 hex screws
located in driver safety cover
(8). Remove the driver safety
cover (8) so the jammed
fastener is exposed.
3. Remove the jammed fastener,
using screwdriver or long nose
pliers if required.
4. Place the driver safety cover
back onto the driving
mechanism and tighten the
3 screws to secure with a
hex key.
5. Test the brad nailer/stapler.
Air source
This tool is designed to operate on clean, dry, compressed
air at regulated pressures between 60 and 120 PSI.
The preferred system would include a filter, a pressure
regulator, and an automatic oiler located as close to the tool
as possible.
All compressed air contains moisture and other
contaminates that are detrimental to internal components
of the tool. An air line filter will remove most of these
contaminates and significantly prolong the life of the tool.
If an in-line oiler is not available, place 3 - 4 drops of non
detergent oil into the tool’s air inlet at the beginning of
each workday.
DANGER. All air line components (hoses, connectors,
filters, regulators, etc.) must have a minimum working
pressure rating of at least 120 PSI or 150% of maximum
system potential, whichever is greater.

18. Guard against electric shock. Prevent body contact
with grounded objects such as water pipes, radiators,
cookers and refrigerator enclosures.
19. Use only approved parts. When servicing, use only
identical replacement parts. Use an authorised service
facility to fit replacement parts.
20. Disconnect tool from air supply hose. Before doing
tool maintenance, clearing a jammed fastener, leaving
work area, moving tool to another location, or handing
the tool to another person.
21. Never use a tool that is leaking air, has missing or
damaged parts, or requires repair. Make sure all
screws and caps are securely tightened.
22. Operator and others in work area MUST wear safety
glasses with side shields.
Additional safety rules
for framing gun nailers
1. Do not play with the contact element. It prevents
accidental discharge, so it must be kept on and not
removed. Securing the trigger in the ON position is also
very dangerous. Never attempt to fasten the trigger. Do
not operate a tool if any portion of the tool operating
controls is inoperable, disconnected, altered, or not
working properly.
2. Operate the tool within the specified air pressure of
0.5 - 0.8 MPa (75 – 120 PSI) for safety and longer tool
life. Do not exceed the recommended max. operating
pressure of 0.8 MPa (120 PSI). The tool should not
be connected to a source whose pressure potentially
exceeds 1.37 MPa (200 PSI).
3. Never use the tool with other than compressed air.
If bottled gas (carbon dioxide, oxygen, nitrogen,
hydrogen, air, etc.) or combustible gas (hydrogen,
propane, acetylene, etc.) is used as an air source for this
tool, the tool will explode and cause serious injury.
4. Always check the tool for its overall condition and
loose screws before operation. Tighten as required.
5. Make sure all safety systems are in working order
before operation. The tool must not operate if only the
trigger is pulled or if only the contact safety mechanism is
pressed against the wood. It must work only when both
actions are performed. Test for possible faulty operation
with nails unloaded.
6. Check working environment. Check walls, ceilings,
floors, roofing and the like carefully to avoid possible
electrical shock, gas leakage, explosions, etc. caused by
striking live wires, conduits or gas pipes.
7. Use only nails specified in this manual. The use of
any other nails may cause malfunction of the tool and will
not be covered under warranty.
5
8. Make sure no one is nearby before nailing. Never
attempt to nail from both the inside and outside at
the same time. Nails may rip through and/or fly off,
presenting high risk to safety.
9. Watch your footing and maintain your balance with
the tool. Make sure there is no one below when working
in high locations, and secure the air hose to prevent
danger if there is sudden jerking or catching.
10. On rooftops and other high locations, nail as you
move forward. It is easy to lose your footing if you
nail while leaning backward. When nailing against
perpendicular surface, nail from the top to the bottom.
You can perform nailing operations with less fatigue
by doing so.
11. Place the nails with care. A nail will be bent or the tool
can become jammed if you mistakenly nail on top of
another nail or strike a knot in the wood. The nail may
be thrown and hit someone, or the tool itself can react
dangerously.
12. Do not leave the loaded tool or the air compressor
under pressure for a long time out in the sun. Be
sure that dust, sand, chips and foreign matter will not
enter the tool in the place where you leave it setting.
13. Do not point the ejection port at anyone in the
vicinity. Keep hands and feet away from the ejection
port area.
14. Accidental firing can be extremely dangerous.
When the air hose is connected, do not carry the tool
with your finger on the trigger or hand it to someone in
this condition.
15. Handle the tool carefully. As there is high pressure
inside the tool that can be dangerous if a crack is
caused by rough handling (dropping or striking). Do not
attempt to carve or engrave on the tool.
16. Stop nailing operations immediately. If you notice
something wrong or out of the ordinary with the tool.
17. Do not operate this tool if it does not contain a
legible WARNING LABEL.
18. Never hang the tool on a waist belt or the like.
Dangerous accidental firing may result.
19. Handle nails and their box carefully. If the nails have
been handled roughly, they may be out of shape or their
connector breaks, causing poor nail feed.
20. Avoid storing nails in a very humid or hot place
exposed to direct sunlight.

CAUTION. Low air output of the compressor or a long or
smaller diameter air hose in relation to the nailing frequency
may cause a decrease in the driving capability of the tool.
Tool lubrication
This framing nailer requires lubrication BEFORE initial use
and BEFORE and AFTER each additional use throughout
its life.
1. Disconnect the air hose, turn the framing nailer so the air
inlet (12) is facing up. Place 2-3 drops of non detergent
oil into the air inlet. This should be done before and
after use. For proper lubrication, the tool must be fired a
couple of times after pneumatic nail gun oil is introduced.
Do not use air tool oil as it contains solvents which will
damage the nailer’s internal parts.
2. Lubricate the contact safety mechanism (1),
the latch (9), and the trigger (4) periodically.
3. After lubrication, run framing nailer briefly. Wipe off any
excess oil from the exhaust port (3). The work surface
can become damaged by excessive lubrication.
4. Framing nailer repairs must be done by a qualified and
experienced service dealer.
Preparing the tool
Selecting compressor
Select a compressor that has ample pressure and air
output to assure cost-efficient operation. The graph shows
the relation between nailing frequency, applicable pressure
and compressor air output.
Thus, for example, if nailing takes place at a rate of
approximately 40 times per minute at a compression of
0.8 MPa (120 PSI). a compressor with an air output over
3CFM is required.
Pressure regulators must be used to limit air pressure to
the rated pressure of the tool where air supply pressure
exceeds the tool’s rated pressure. Failure to do so may
result in serious injury to tool operator or persons in the vicinity.

Selecting air hose
Use an air hose with a large diameter and as short as
possible to assure continuous, efficient nailing operation.
With an air pressure of 0.80 MPa (120 PSI), an air hose
with an internal diameter of over 6.5mm (1/4”) and a length
of less than 20 m (6.6 ft.) is recommended when the interval
between each nailing is 0.5 seconds. Air supply hoses shall
have a minimum working pressure rating of 1.06 MPa
(150 PSI) or 150 percent of the maximum pressure
produced in the system whichever is higher.

Operating the tool
Firing mechanism
This tool operates on a single (full sequential actuation)
firing system.
Single (full sequential actuation) firing
To fire, grip tool firmly to maintain control, position the
contact safety nose (1) of tool onto work surface, and
squeeze trigger (4) to fire a fastener. Allow tool to recoil
away from work surface as fastener is driven.
This “full sequential actuation” method provides the most
accurate fastener placement.
Where to use framing nailer
Framing nailer guns are used mainly in heavy construction
applications. Some additional important safety applications
are as follows:
1. Fire fasteners into work surface only, never into materials
too hard to penetrate such as concrete and steel.
2. Do not drive fasteners on top of other fasteners, or with
the tool at too steep an angle as the fasteners may
ricochet causing personal injury.
3. Do not drive fasteners close to the edge of the workpiece.
The workpiece is likely to split allowing the fastener to fly
free or ricochet causing personal injury.
Checking the safety strike element
1. Disconnect the air hose from the framing gun nailer and
remove all fasteners from the magazine (7).
2. Make sure the trigger (4) and the contact safety nose (1)
move freely up and down.
3. Reconnect air hose to the framing nailer.
Adjusting depth of nailing
CAUTION. Always disconnect the hose before adjusting the
depth of nailing.
IMPORTANT. Always test the nail depth on a sample piece
of wood and establish whether the nail head is too deep or
proud of the surface.
1. To adjust the nail driving
C
depth, rotate the Depth
adjustment dial (2) at the
front of the adjustment plate,
rotate anticlockwise (up the
thread) for deeper nail driving
and likewise, rotate clockwise
(downwards) for a flush nail
driving (flat to surface),(Fig. C).
14
2. Connect the Framing Gun to an air supply and fire a nail
into a sample piece of wood to determine the driving
depth has been achieved.
3. If the nail depth is not acceptable, disconnect the tool
from the air supply and re-adjust.
Connecting the air hose
D
1. Slip the air coupling of the air
hose onto the air fitting on
the nailer. Be sure that the
air coupling locks firmly into
position when installed onto
the air fitting (Fig. D).
2. A hose coupling must be
installed on or near the tool in
such a way that the pressure reservoir will discharge at
the time the air supply coupling is disconnected.
Air source
This tool is designed to operate on clean, dry, compressed
air at regulated pressures between 75 and 120 PSI.
The preferred system would include a filter, a pressure
regulator, and an automatic oiler located as close to the
tool as possible.
All compressed air contains moisture and other
contaminates that are detrimental to internal components
of the tool. An air line filter will remove most of these
contaminates and significantly prolong the life of the tool.
If an in-line oiler is not available, place 3 - 4 drops of non
detergent oil into the tool’s air inlet at the beginning of
each workday.
DANGER. All air line components (hoses, connectors,
filters, regulators, etc.) must have a minimum working
pressure rating of at least 150 PSI or 150% of maximum
system potential, whichever is greater.
Operation
Maintenance
1. Push the contact safety nose (1) against the work surface
without depressing the trigger (4).
2. Once the nail gun has been positioned to the appropriate
firing angle, depress the trigger (4) and release.
Clearing a jam
CAUTION. Always disconnect the hose and remove the
nails from the magazine before clearing a jam. When the
nailer becomes jammed, proceed as follows:
1. Insert a small rod or the like
E
into the ejection port and tap it
with a hammer to drive out the
nail jamming the ejection port.
(Fig. E)
Small rod
2. Reset the nails inside the
magazine

3. Test the framing gun.
CAUTION. Always ensure that the air hose is disconnected
from the tool before attempting to perform inspection or
maintenance.
Maintenance of nailer
F
Always check the tool for its
overall condition and loose
screws before operation.
Tighten as required (Fig. F).
1. Make sure all safety systems
are in working order before
operation. The tool must not
operate if only the trigger is
pulled or if only the contact safety nose (1) is pressed
against the wood. It must work only when both actions
are performed. Test for possible faulty operation with
nails unloaded.
2. Entering dirt or foreign matter into the tool may cause
damage to the tool.
3. When not in use, disconnect the air hose.
15
4. When the tool is not to be used for an extended period of
time, lubricate the tool using pneumatic tool oil and store
the tool in a safe place.
5. Avoid exposure to direct sunlight and/or a humid or hot
environment.
Maintenance of compressor,
air settings and air hose
1. After operation, always drain the compressor tank and
the air filter.
2. If moisture is allowed to enter the tool, it may result in
poor performance and possible tool failure.
3. Keep the air hose away from heat (over 60°C), away
from chemicals (thinner, strong acids or alkalis).
4. Also, route the hose away from obstacles which it may
become dangerously caught on during operation.
5. Hoses must also be directed away from sharp edges and
areas which may lead to damage or abrasion to the hose.
Cleaning
1. Keep the tool’s air vents unclogged and clean at all times.
2. Remove dust and dirt regularly. Cleaning is best done
with a soft brush or a rag.
3. Re-lubricate all moving parts at regular intervals.
4. If the body of the framing nailer needs cleaning, wipe it
with a soft damp cloth. A mild detergent can be used but
nothing like alcohol, petrol or other cleaning agent.
5. Never use caustic agents to clean plastic parts.
CAUTION. Water must never come into contact with
the tool.
Repairs
Only an authorised service centre should carry out repairs
on air tools.
