Rate this topic

View PostAfter 15 years I finaly killed my Bostich stick nailer. One of the seals is leaking. How hard is it to replace the seals and who sells seal kits?

 

Incredibly inexpensive and easy to fix. The seal kits are sold everywhere, maybe even try Home Depot to see if they have them.

DON'T buy a new one!!! Our old Bostich nailers are still going strong but the new ones were always in the shop until we just stopped using them. You can thank OSHA for that as they have so many safeties they're useless.

Like Speed said, very easy to deal with the seal. Plus you can also cheaply replace the bumper if its shows signs of being worn. Trigger seals can be a bigger pain on certain early guns, but still not worth sending it out.

Like the N60's where you have to buy a new Trigger Valve because Bostich does not sell the small Cup Seal that likes to split????beatin.gif
