Clear jams eas­ily

The Family Handyman - - 2018 BEST IN DIY -

In our test­ing, we had very few brads get jammed in the tip of the tool. But when this does hap­pen, it’s nice to be able to clear the tip with­out tools. All but one of the brad nail­ers have tool-free jam clear­ing. On most tools, you re­lease a latch on the front to ac­cess the jammed brad. To ac­cess a jam on the Mil­wau­kee tool, you just re­lease the nail clip cover.

Oc­ca­sion­ally the driver in th­ese brad nail­ers will get stuck. A few tools have a “stall re­lease” lever to re­set the driver. Other tools in­struct you to re­move and then re­place the bat­tery. Then you press the nose against a scrap of wood and pull the trig­ger to re­set the driver. Be sure to read this sec­tion of your in­struc­tion man­ual to see how your tool works.
