Information (Continued)

reactive gas instead of compressed air may cause the tool to explode which will cause death or serious personal injury.

Use only a pressureregulated compressed

air source to limit the air pressure supplied to the tool. The regu-

lated pressure must

not exceed 100 psi. If the regulator fails, the pressure delivered to the tool must not exceed 200 psi. The tool could explode which will cause death or serious personal injury.

Never use gasoline or other flammable

liquids to clean the tool. Never use the

tool in the presence

of flammable liquids or gases. Vapors could ignite by a spark and cause an explosion which will result in death or serious personal injury.

Always remain in a firmly balanced position when using or handling the tool.

Do not remove, tamper with, or

otherwise cause the Work Contact Element (WCE) or

trigger to become

inoperable. Do not operate any tool which has been modified in a like fashion. Death or serious personal injury could result.

Do not touch the

trigger unless driving fasteners. Never attach air

line to tool or carry tool while

touching the trigger. The tool could eject a fastener which will result in death or serious personal injury.

Warning indicates ! WARNING a potentially

hazardous situation which, if not avoided, COULD result in death or

serious injury.

Always disconnect the tool

from the power source when unattended, performing any

maintenance or repair, clearing a jam, or moving the tool to a new location. Always reconnect the air line BEFORE loading any fasteners. Do not load the tool with fasteners when either the trigger is depressed or the Work Contact Element (WCE) is engaged. The tool could eject a fastener causing death or serious personal injury.

Always fit tool with a fitting or

hose coupling on or near the

tool in such a manner that all

compressed air in the tool is discharged at the time the fitting or hose coupling is disconnected. Do not use a check valve or any other fitting which allows air to remain in the tool. Death or serious personal injury could occur.

Never place hands or any other body parts in the fastener discharge area of the tool. The tool might eject a fastener and could result

in death or serious personal injury.

Never carry the

tool by the air

hose or pull the hose to move the

tool or a compressor. Keep hoses

away from heat,

oil and sharp edges. Replace any hose that is damaged, weak or worn. Personal injury or tool damage could occur.

Always assume the tool contains fasteners. Respect the tool as a working implement; no horseplay.

Always keep others at a safe distance from the work area in case of accidental discharge of fasteners. Do not point the tool toward yourself or anyone whether it contains fasteners or not. Accidental triggering of the tool could result in death or serious personal injury.

Do not drive a

fastener on top of other fasteners. The fastener could glance and cause death or a serious puncture wound.

Do not operate

or allow anyone else to operate

the tool if any warnings or warning labels

are not legible. Warnings or warning

General Safety

Information (Continued)

labels are located on the tool magazine and body.

Do not drop or throw the tool. Dropping or throwing the tool can result in damage that will make the tool unusable or unsafe. If the tool has been dropped or thrown, examine the tool closely for bent, cracked or broken parts and air leaks. STOP and repair before using or serious injury could occur.

Caution indicates ! CAUTION a potentially haz-

ardous situation which, if not avoided, MAY result in minor or moderate injury.

Do not make any modifications to the tool without first obtaining written approval from Campbell Hausfeld. Do not use the tool if any shields or guards are removed or altered. Do not use the tool as a hammer. Personal injury or tool

damage may occur.

Always check that the Work

Contact Element (WCE) is operat-

ing properly. A fastener could

accidentally be driven if the WCE is not

working properly. Personal injury may occur (See "Checking the Work Contact Element" Section).

Disconnect air supply and release tension from the pusher before attempting to clear jams because tools can be ejected from the front of the tool. Personal injury may occur.

NOTICE

Notice indicates

important infor-

mation, that if not followed, MAY cause damage to equipment.

Avoid using the tool when the magazine is empty. Accelerated wear on the tool may occur.

Clean and check all air supply hoses and fittings before connecting the tool to an air supply. Replace any damaged or worn hoses or fittings. Tool performance or durability may be reduced.

Air compressors providing air to the tool should follow the requirements established by the American National Standards Institute Standard B19.3-1991; Safety Standard for Compressors for Process Industries. Contact your air compressor manufacturer for information.

Operating The

Stapler

Read this manual and understand all safety warnings and instructions before operating the stapler.

LUBRICATION

This stapler requires lubrication before using the stapler for the first time and before each use. If an inline oiler is used, manual lubrication through the air inlet is not required on a daily basis.

NOTICE

The work surface

can become dam-

 

aged by excessive lubrication. Proper lubrication is the owner’s responsibility. Failure to lubricate the stapler properly will dramatically shorten the life of the stapler and void your warranty.

1. Disconnect the

air supply from the stapler to

add lubricant.

2. Turn the stapler so the air

inlet is facing up. Place 4-5 drops of

30 W non-deter-

 

 

 

 

gent oil into air

OIL

inlet. Do not use

 

 

 

 

detergent oils, oil

 

 

 

 

additives, or air tool

 

 

 

 

oils. Air tool oils

 

 

 

 

contain solvents

 

 

 

 

which will damage

 

 

 

 

the stapler's internal components.

3. After adding oil, run stapler briefly. Wipe off any excess oil from the cap exhaust.

RECOMMENDED HOOKUP

The illustration below shows the recommended hookup for the stapler.

1. The air compressor must be able to main-

tain a minimum of 50 psi

when the stapler is being

used. An inadequate air supply can cause a loss of power and inconsistent driving.

2. An oiler can be used

to provide oil circulation through the stapler. A filter can be used to remove liquid and solid impurities which

can rust or “gum up” internal parts of the stapler.

3. Use 3/8” air

hoses with a minimum

working pressure of 150 psi. Use 1/2”

air hoses for 50’ run or longer. For better performance, install a 3/8” quick plug (1/4” NPT threads) with an inside diameter of .315" (8mm) on the stapler and a 3/8” quick coupler on the air hose.

4.Use a pressure regulator on the compressor, with an operating pressure of 0 - 125 psi. A pressure regu-
