    Silver Solder To The Rescue!

    I was working tonight and I tripped over my air hose, my Accuset brad nailer fell off the bench, it landed on my cushioned mats, but the tip broke off the safety do-dad that you have to press against the wood to get the brad nailer to fire

    ... bad words were said

    I knew I could not MIG weld it, that is a very small piece, so I got out the silver solder (if that is what it is still called?) and had a go.....

    .... boy I was one happy camper that this worked!


    I will order a replacement part from Senco, but now I'll not be in such a hurry to get it.

    I do love to be able to fix my own mistakes, but then again, I seem to get a lot of practice....

    Let me know if you find parts for it. I need to order a replacement tip for mine, the little red bumper.

    Nice work on the repair.

    I found the part >> HERE <<

    AccuSet Lower Safety Element Part# A28075 $7.07

    But of course they will not ship outside of the USA

    I'll have to keep looking.

    Darren, they show the red bumper things as "Obsolete" not longer available

    I'm glad I could fix it, now I'll have to see if there is some company that will ship this part to me..?

    Perhaps one will, see if they will ship it in a large crate made from spanish cedar.

    Bummer on the obsolete tip, I may just have to try dipping it in plasti-dip.

    Just another innovative idea for you. Glad it got fixed.
