PowerPalm™ Pneumatic Nailer The PowerPalm Nailer is used to drive 16 or 18 gage Powercleats® in those hard-to-reach places where traditional flooring nailers can’t reach (finishing rows, starter rows, end strips, transitions, etc.) SAFETY WARNINGS & CAUTIONS • Always wear safety glasses with side shields that meet ANSI Z87.1 requirements when operating the tool. Make sure all others in work area wear safety glasses. • Always wear hearing protection to protect your hearing from noise. Prolonged exposer to loud noise can result in hearing loss. • TO LOAD: Point tool in a safe direction, lightly place one nail in the guide bushing tip. A magnet in the bushing will hold the nail. DO NOT PUSH THE NAIL. Pushing the nail too deep into the tip can result in activating the tool. • Only connect air to an unloaded tool to avoid accidental discharge and always keep tool pointed in a safe direction. • Never point tool at yourself or others in the work area. Always keep tool pointed in a safe direction at all times. • Use only clean, dry, regulated air, not to exceed 70 - 100 psi • Never use oxygen or other bottled gasses-explosion may occur. • Always DISCONNECT THE AIR SUPPLY before making any adjustments, repairing, clearing jams or when the Nailer is not in use. Do not use on scaffolding or ladders and disconnect Nailer from air supply when transporting between installation areas. • Never attach the female end of a quick disconnect to the Nailer. This will trap air inside the Nailer and permit it to be discharged. Only the unrestricted male connection should be attached to the Nailer. OPERATING THE TOOL Your Air Palm Nailer is an Automatic Hammer. It has no trigger—it starts driving when the rod of piston assembly presses against the fastener’s head. It will automatically stop when the fastener’s head no longer touches this piston rod. The operator needs only a slight amount of pressure to activate the tool. Do not force the tool. Powernail Power Palm Nailer Tool-Tips 1) Place one nail in the guide bushing 2) Do not push harder than necessary to activate nailer 3) Nailer will drive & set nail with minimal pressure 4) For exotic & dense wood, 1-1/2” length nails work best 5) Sub-floor must be solid for nail to drive & set correctly. Use the palm nailer to nail down your starter rows. Be sure to leave the recommended expansion space between the wall and your starter rows. Use the palm nailer for 2-3 rows or until you are far enought from the wall where you can start using a Powernailer®. Use the palm nailer on the last couple of finishing rows where a Powernailer® can’t be used.
