Additional Safety for Nailers
1. HAND INJURIES: Do not place your
hands near the nail point of entry.
A nail can deflect and tear through
the surface of the workpiece,
puncturing your hand or fingers.
5. HOSE USAGE: Make sure your air
hose is designed for the tool in
use, is in good condition, and is
long enough to reach your work
without stretching. However, an
overly long air hose in the work
area may be a tripping hazard.
2. COMBUSTIBLE GASES: Never
connect the nailer to pressurized
oxygen or other combustible
gases as a power source. Only use
filtered, lubricated, and regulated
compressed air.
6. OPERATING QUESTIONS: If you
are not sure about the intended
operation, stop using the nailer.
Seek formal training.
3. SAFE HANDLING: Never point
the nailer at others! Do not keep
the trigger pulled when loading
fasteners, carrying, or holding
tool. Carry the nailer only by the
handle, never by any other part.
Do not carry the nailer by the air
hose. Disconnect the nailer from
the air hose when going up and
down ladders.
7. MAINTENANCE: Always disconnect
air from the nailer when servicing
or installing nails. During
maintenance, a nailer connected to
air may fire accidentally, causing
serious personal injury.
8. COMPRESSED AIR RATING: Do not
connect the nailer to compressed
air that exceeds 120 PSI.
9. CHECK VALVE: Do not use a check
valve or any other fitting that
allows air to remain in the tool.
4. CLEANING: Never use gasoline or
other flammable liquids to clean
the nailer; vapors in the nailer will
ignite by a spark and cause it to
explode.
10. MODIFICATIONS: DO NOT modify
this tool or bypass safety nose
mechanisms.
Never point this nailer at yourself
or another person! Always pay
attention to the direction this nailer
is pointed. Use this tool with respect
and caution to lessen the possibility
of operator or bystander injury.
Ignoring this warning may result in
serious personal injury.
Nailer accidents routinely happen
while moving the gun to another
location, such as up ladders, to
another room, or even another job
site. Always disconnect the gun
immediately after use and never
transport the gun while connected to
the air—even if the air compressor is
disconnected from its power source!

Compressed Air System
The Model W1785 is designed to be
operated at 70-100 PSI using clean,
dry, regulated, compressed air. Do not
exceed the 120 PSI maximum pressure
for your model.
Before using your nailer, regulate the
air pressure to find the optimum setting
within the specified operating range.
Start by testing the nailer at a low
setting, then increase the air pressure as
needed for satisfactory results.
Exceeding the maximum permissible
operating pressure may damage the
nailer and cause it to malfunction.
To protect yourself from personal
injury, DO NOT allow the air pressure
to exceed the recommended
pressure for this nailer!
An in-line filter/lubricator/regulator unit
can be installed as depicted in Figure 1.
This filter/lubricator/regulator unit
will protect your tool from damaging
water build-up, allow you to adjust and
maintain regulated air pressure, and
save you the inconvenience of having to
manually lubricate your tool every time
you use it.
If you plan on installing a filter/
lubricator/regulator unit in your
compressed air system, always follow the
connection instructions that come with
the unit.

OPERATIONS
Operating
3. Hold the nail firmly in place with one
hand as if using a regular hammer.
If you have not read the safety
instructions in this manual, do not
operate the nailer.
4. Place the tip of the palm nailer over
the end of the nail. When the ram pin
touches the nail head, the nailer will
automatically begin to hammer the
nail into the workpiece.
Before you operate your nailer, place five
to six drops of the included oil into the
quick connect fitting where the nailer
connects to the air supply.
5. Hold the nailer in place until the
sliding depth guide is fully depressed.
To operate your nailer, do these steps:
Note: You can stop the nailer at any
time by simply lifting it away from
the nail. This is useful if you do not
want to countersink the nail into the
workpiece.
1. Connect the air supply to the quick
connect fitting.
2. Make sure your hand and other body
parts are positioned out of the way of
a potential path of a nail in case of
deflection.
If allowed to continue until it stops,
the nailer will countersink the nail
to an approximate depth of 2mm or
5
⁄64".
Deflection is caused when grain
irregularities, knots or foreign objects
inside the wood cause the nail to
change its path, resulting in the
nail puncturing the surface of the
workpiece, as shown in Figure 2.
6. When the nail is fully hammered
into the workpiece, the nailer will
automatically stop.
Besides damaging your workpiece,
deflection can cause injury if your
free hand is securing the workpiece in
the location that the nail deflects.
Operating this nailer can propel
objects into the air, causing immediate
eye damage. To protect yourself,
always wear ANSI approved safety
glasses or goggles when operating this
equipment.
Figure 2. Example of nail deflection.

Replacing Pistons/
O-Rings
5. Take hold of the ram pin and pull the
piston from the cylinder.
6. Place the new O-ring on the new
piston, and apply a thin film of tool
oil on the O-ring.
Under heavy use, the piston or O-rings
may wear out. Replacement is quick and
easy. Contact your authorized Shop Fox
dealer to obtain the Piston Repair Kit
(Part Number X1785127), or the Complete
O-Ring Kit (Part Number X1785128).
7. Insert the new piston in the cylinder.
The new piston should easily slide
into the cylinder. DO NOT force
the piston into the cylinder! If the
piston is not easily inserted, check
the alignment of the piston inside the
cylinder.
8. After the piston is inserted correctly,
place the cylinder back in the nailer
housing. If seated correctly, the
cylinder will snap into place.
9. Push the cylinder collar down into
the housing as far as it will go. The
horizontal air slots on the side of the
cylinder should be visible.
Always disconnect nailer from air
whenever servicing! During maintenance, a nailer connected to air
may fire accidentally, causing serious personal injury!
10. Replace the rear cap and secure it
with the four cap screws.
To replace a piston, do these steps:
11. Re-install the flat washer,
compression spring, depth guide,
and nose piece onto the front of the
nailer, and use a 19mm wrench to
tighten the nose piece.
1. DISCONNECT NAILER FROM THE AIR
SUPPLY!
2. Use a 19mm wrench to remove the
nose piece, then remove the depth
guide, compression spring, and flat
washer.
12. For more assistance, or to install the
complete O-Ring Repair Kit, refer to
the Parts Breakdown on Page 10 for
component locations.
3. Use the 4mm hex wrench to remove
the four cap screws on the nailer rear
cap, then remove the cap.
4. Push the ram pin towards the inside
of the nailer. This will push the
cylinder free of the housing.

CLEANING & LUBRICATION
Cleaning
Lubricating
Use a good solvent to clean the nose
assembly of the nailer. Always be sure
that the nailer is dry before using it
again.
Standard pneumatic tool oil has been
included with your new Shop Fox nailer
to help maintain its useful life. Place two
to six drops of oil in the nailer air inlet
(as shown in Figure 3) before every use,
or after 2 hours of continuous use.
Do not allow dust, chips, sand, etc.
into the air connectors or into the body
of the nailer; this may result in leaks
and damage to the nailer and the air
couplings.
Wipe off any excess oil near the nailer
exhaust to avoid dust build-up. When the
oil that was included with the nailer has
been completely used, replace with a
quality pneumatic tool oil.
Another option to manual oiling would
be to install a lubricator in your air
compressor line. If your air compressor
line already has a lubricator, then regular
lubrication of your nailer will not be
necessary. Just make sure there is always
oil in the lubricator.
Never clean this tool with gasoline
or other flammable liquids. Vapors
in the tool may ignite, causing
the tool to explode. Ignoring
this warning may lead to serious
personal injury or even death!
