I know a million folks will chime in and tell me how wrong I am,, but you need a new shaft,,, just a few bucks at the big ole box store,,, you will think you have a new gun,,,, just go for it manI love the dewalt 272 but i find you sometimes get play in the nosecone...tends to get wobbly and screws sometimes fall off.... Is there any way to tighten them or do you have to have a service tech. Replace it? Thank you for your time.
A new shaft always helps. Also take off the nose cone. you'll see a brass bushing (guide for the shaft) make sure its pushed in all the way and the inner hole of the guide isnt too worn or oblong. Which is caused by using the gun to pull out misses. When you push the gun to the side to help the screw grab some of the board to get it out. Also if you have the all plastic nose cone's on the 272's their crap. Get the cone's that have the all metal top. Much better, easier, and more comfortable to get screws on.I know a million folks will chime in and tell me how wrong I am,, but you need a new shaft,,, just a few bucks at the big ole box store,,, you will think you have a new gun,,,, just go for it man
Why didn't you buy the new 21.6v lithium SF5000A? They are lighter and more compact than the 18v and spin at 5000 rpm.dewalt 4000 rpm or the old hilti 4000 ,that thy dont make no more . just bought two hilti 18 volt 4200 rpm cordless screw guns works really good, but a little bulky. but are made to turn on and let run thay have cooling fans built in side of them. grate guns its about time
cuz we're not as cool as u west coast guys:jester:Hilti I have an older one with the ergonomic grip with a hook
that sure is handy to hang on a lift or scaffold. I mainly frame
metal studs but have used it for hanging board and it works great.
One thing I can never understand about the east coast is why
on earth don't y'all get the 50' whips(cords) for your guns? The
10' cords require another extension cord and the plug gets
hung up on scaffolds, lifts etc.
