Paslode 6 Vdc Fan


Has anyone tried to use a regular 6 volt dc fan in any of these guns? I bought one from raido shack and runs ok. I just jumped the wires. The shaft is to short to actually use. It may have ran longer than the original. It cost $4.00 compared to$40. I have the 250 straight trim 16 gauge. The 30 degree framer has the same fan (its like $90.) I know there's a lot of post about these guns, hopefully this isn't a double posting.

Does your RS fan pull at least as much current as the Paslode fan?
Less current = tool lifetime shortened.

I guess that was part or the question. I can't find any specs on the paslode fan. The fans I've seen have fast or slow speed. It seems the paslode has dual speed. ? I hardly use the trim gun, and I'm definitely not fast. So it's not constant nailing. I like having it tho.

What are the diameters and lengths of the Paslode fan motor and your RS motor? Less volume for the RS motor definitely means less power handling.

Motor volume = area x length, area = PI x D squared over 4.

Small motor volume & weight should be a design constraint for Paslode and not so for RS.

Or, can someone with an ammeter & the tool in question or a similar tool help this brutha' out?

Thank you. You are getting over my head. :what: lol woodbanger here. It's good to know how to figure this. I wish I had more ele. knowledge. The one I had is not as strong. Just thought a non-paslode motor, even the right size might be a lot cheaper. Especially for the framer, it's only sold as a kit for $100. Thats crazy.

Thanks Tom. I broke down the framing gun to "borrow" the fan; thats how I knew the connections worked. I can't just can't get the blade off. I'm looking for a 250 ii 16 gauge trim, or one that has the same fan. The guns old, so I'll find one, hopefully. To old to spend a lot of $. for now it's back to air.
