Safety Precautions

 Before attaching the tool to the air line, check the following: -

1.             The air line pressure must be less than the maximum rated pressure of the tool

2.             The air coupling does not retain pressure in the tool body

3.             The safety lever (where fitted) moves freely

4.             The trigger operates freely

5.             There are no missing or loose screws

6.             There are no cracks or dents in the body of thetool

7.             Wear safety glasses and ear defenders

8.             Check the tool contains no fasteners

9.             Do not depress the safety or trigger when attaching the tool to the air-line in case it fires

10.          Ensure the tool is pointed at the floor when you attach it to the air line away from you and others nearby

 

Pre-use tool checks with the air hose connected: -

1.            Hold the tool pointed away from you or anyone nearby and with no fasteners in the magazine. With your finger off the trigger, push the safety lever against the work surface THE TOOL MUST NOT ACTUATE. If the tool actuates, it indicates a fault in the trigger valve area.

2.            Hold the tool pointed away from you or anyone nearby and with no fasteners in the magazine. With the safety lever not touching the work surface, pull the trigger THE TOOL MUST NOT ACTUATE. If the tool actuates, it indicates a fault in the safety lever area.

 

Stop using the air tool in the case of any of the following: -

1.             The tool is dented by a knock or being dropped

2.             The tool jams. If so disconnect the tool from the air before attempting to clear the jam

3.              Ensure that your clothing does not interfere with the tool

4.              When moving from place to place with the tool, remove it from the air line, then re-connect it at your new station

5.              Keep your head to one side when nailing; in case of recoil

6.              Do not drop the tool or use it as a hammer the outer casing may be weakened or deformed by this

7.              Use the correct range of fasteners in the tool

8.              After loading a strip nailer, gently slide the pusher against the nails

9.              Do not nail close to the edge or corner of the work or through too thin material

10.           Remove the tool from the airline and take the fasteners from the tool when you have completed your work.

11.           Do not use the tool on a ladder or scaffolding or other unstable surface


Tool Maintenance

Air Supply: -

1.              Use only an air compressor to power the tool

2.              Operate in the recommended pressure range

3.              Use 3-piece air set (filter/regulator/oiler), or a filter+regulator and oil daily

4.              Drain your compressor daily

 
Daily & Weekly Procedures: -

1.             Clean the tool daily with an air blower to ensure the smooth movement of all external parts, especially the trigger and safety mechanisms

2.             Use the correct grade of air tool oil & put 2-3 drops through the air inlet every day. (If the tool is not to be used for an extended period, oil the tool as normal and fire once to ensure the internal parts are well lubricated. Also, coat the external parts with a thin film of oil to prevent rust.)

3.             Tighten all screws weekly
