Commonly Asked Questions

Is It Cheaper to Repair or Replace My Tool?

Generally, it’s cheaper to repair or rebuild your tool. In some cases, it can be as much as three times more expensive to purchase a new tool. Replacements are only recommended in situations where the cost of the repair would exceed the cost of a new tool or if the tool itself is beyond repair.

How Do I Properly Maintain My Tool?

Maintenance recommendations will vary based on the tool and manufacturer.

Broad maintenance requirements include:

  • Regularly removing dust, debris, and any residual fastening materials. Always use a clean, dry cloth to wipe down the exterior and a brush or compressed air to remove debris in hard-to-reach areas.
  • Regularly inspecting the tool for signs of wear or damage, like cracks in the casing, worn or damaged seals, and loose components.
  • Listening and feeling around for air leaks and ensuring connections are tight.
  • If your tool uses a magazine to hold the fasteners, regularly checking it for proper alignment and signs of damage, and keep it clean.
  • Calibrating the tool when needed.
  • Checking and replacing air filters, if needed.
  • Replacing worn or damaged parts.
  • Lubricating regularly with manufacturer-recommended oil. Use a few drops before you use the tool. The goal is to coat the internal parts lightly without flooding them.

If you purchase a tool from King Steel Fasteners, please visit our resources page to find its manual, which includes more maintenance and general troubleshooting tips.

How Do I Prevent Over-Oiling?

You can use a mini-oiler attached to an air hose or be consistent with the number of drops you use during manual lubrication (3-5 is usually enough). Be sure to periodically check the tool’s exhaust for signs of oil splatter, which indicates over-oiling.
