Topic tags/keywords: cordless nailer

I have a Ryobi P320 18ga cordless brad nailer in hand I purchased from this site.

Reconditioned kit

The striker stuck in the out position on every brad of either 1 1/4 or 2”. The nail channel appeared dirty, so I swabbed it with alcohol using a cotton ball. After the alcohol swab the nail striker is sticking occasionally, but I was able to use it. I’m wondering if a good cleaning and application of a graphite lubricant might help. Any thoughts?

The original nailer had a thin coating of lube on it (like a thin grease), so I would imagine something like lithium grease might help

Check out the Paslode cleaning kit at the big box store and oil things up after ‘

you clean it and it should perform better.
