I hope they weren’t installing asphalt shingles on your roof. The thing with some staplers and fin nailers is the paper like gluey material they use to hold the staples and nails in line, it clogs the shaft and nosing of the gun.

2nd the operator is in such a hurry to move to the next item that they often maintain hold on the trigger and cause double fires before the gun is lifted high enough to allow the fastener to deflect off the head of the previous shot.

3rd they don’t believe the gun needs the amount of oil it does to run properly. A pneumatic needs oiling before use halfway through the work day and as it’s put to bed for the day.

I never had a clog with coil nailers plastic or wire collation. All heavy use tools need monthly clearing/cleaning, all need inlet caps to keep crap out. All my fin nailers are old Senco and PC. All my framers are old Paslodes and a Hitachi 8p coil. Roofers old Hitachi, sidewall old Paslode. Most of my construction pneumatics are from the mid 80s and still running.

-- I meant to do that!
