Hello folks!

I got myself a tidy paslode nail gun :huray:

Then went buy a nail pack!

Would the raw plug nail pack fuel cell fit the paslode? Its half the price of a paslode pack and there is different types of fuel cell for the paslode! :dunno:

Should work. The gun looks very similar to the older style Passlodes I've used. There are two types of cannister for the earlier guns, a full length one (used on framing nailers like yours) and a half length one (used only on the 16 and 18 gauge 2nd fix guns). I've used Rawl gas and nails on both Passlodes and Sencos and never had a problem - just avoid stuff like Champion as the gas seems to clog-up the gun and make sure that your gas is well in date when you buy it (the cannisters are all dated)

Genuine paslode gas is much better than the generic stuff as it doesn’t seem to flood the back of the gun as much as the cheap gas. You need to clean the guns out way more using the cheapo gas but apart from that it’s a no brainer as genuine gas and nails are way overpriced.

Grand, so! Maybe worth mentioning that they do need cleaning (inside the firing cylinder) from time to time and that it's a good idea to slip the battery out when you are not using the gun for 10 minutes or more (tea breaks, cutting materials, etc) because that little flashing green light in the handle will flatten the battery - and there's nowt worse than picking up a nailer to fix something in place only to find out that it's flat ::b

happens to me all the time with my makita gun. everywhere here sells rawl nails too so they seem a decent price. jus as i said make sure ya never use that champion sh*t. stupid stuff still makes me angry for Fuc$ing up my dewalt gun.

be aware that rawl sell 90mm ring shank nails and gas. that stuff is certainly no good on my makita gun. it couldnt sink the nails. its fine with 90mm smooth shanks and up to 65mm rings. but any rings longer and its ney good so make sure ya get the right stuff..

unless of course your passy will fire 90mm rings

It won't, Fin. The new im90i will, but the OP's gun is an older model which won't do it - and that's why for years Paslode never offered 90mm ring shanks

We used 90mm rings in the early 2000’s for nailing kit panels together,really only worked on timber to timber and even then it was about 80% of the nails that would sink past the flush. Never seen them again after about 2005.
Fin all we use is champion nails,they work great in my dewalt nailer but the gas is useless if using in a passy or makita.
Champion finish nails are fine and so is the gas in a passy gun.

what happened with mine was a bit of the plasticy stuff the nails are held together with went inside the dewalt gun. then it entered into d*ck head mode 2013 and i had to send it away to be repaired.

it was a trial dcn690 so maybe it was just broke and it wasnt the champion nails it just was a coincidence that i noticed.

yes the gas is deffo utter crap though. inside the gun looks like its smoked a million bines

90mm rings are weird. they seem to go in fine on less dence grained timber but if its hard tight grained then ney chance
