Default new pancake compressor

i have a big compressor in the shop, but when working in my house i have to drag out a long long series of hoses and it is more aggravating if the weather is bad outside as in raining or cold.

i had some store credit at hd. so today i picked up a porter-cable pancake compressor. it had 3 nailers included. there was a finish nailer, a brad nailer, and a stapler.

well after reading the instructions, all 3 nailers are oilless. i have never heard of this? i havent bought any nailers other than a pin nailer in a long time.

anyone else have any experience with this???

Hi Levon

Can't always believe all you read, they want you to use them but not last a long time ,pickup a small bottle of air oil and put in a drop or two after you use them every time.. take care not to much it will blow out on the stock..it's always best to put one or two nails/staples in some scrap stock b/4 you use them..for real..

thanks BJ,

i had considered using a little oil, but didnt want to do something to screw up the nailers.

i really like the convenience of the small compressor and the fact it will run all of the naliers i own .

before ive been pulling out 150 feet of air hose from my shop to work in the house.

Hi Levon

It's always best to get the tips from the Pro's..you will see a lot of contractors use the pancake compressor, they are light and can be taken just about anywhere..I saw a roofer had his hanging from his 16 ft.ladder with pants belt

youre right BobJ,

my belt would probably hold it up considering the weight of the compressor, but id have to take off the belt and hang it on something,

otherwise id have people screaming, pull your pants up,lol

levon, Bought the sane setup, Always put a drop or two in each gun before I use them, Has been a pretty good buy, have used the heck out of them, and they are holding up very good

thanks jbishop,

i hope to use them quite a bit. i am now blessed with an abundance of nailguns, but that is a good problem to have.

Hey fellas, I bought that 3-gun package at HD a couple years ago for $239 and have used it a LOT around the place. Never had a problem. Always used couple drops of oil. In fact mine SAID to use some oil. I bought a much better hose. It is one of the better DEALS I've made on tools and I have never seen it for that low price since. Great package!
