my bostitch spiker has morning sickness
Bought a new Bostitch F28WW stick nailer back in July. Overall very happy with it – light magnesium body, super easy depth adjustment, 4-stick capacity, smart trigger, good price, wide range of fasteners available.
The past 2 weeks it has developed an odd habit. First thing in the morning it won’t fire, just a hiss of air when the trigger is depressed. Tinkering around with it – removing nails and replacing, disconnecting and reconnecting air, etc, eventually gets it to fire, but I couldn’t really say what is causing the problem. After that first minute or two, it will fire consistely and reliably for the rest of the day. I wondered if the cooler mornings (mid 40s) were contributing, so I switched to winter weight Bostitch oil, but most mornings it still does this. Anyone heard of anything like this? I’d like to solve the problem because this gun is so good in all other respects.
