misc ==> Installing Restrictive Trigger On Senco SNS45 Nailer
This project was about replacing the automatic trigger on my Senco
SNS45XP (similar to SNS45) pneumatic stapler, with a restrictive trigger.
SNS45 by default works in automatic mode, sometimes shooting more
than one staple at a time. This may be useful for roofing contractors,
but since I use it for building crates, it was annoying.
Senco offers a replacement trigger
free of charge, due to legal and safety reasons. They sent one to me,
but I found the instructions to be rather lacking. This page attemps to
go to another extreme and offer a photo tutorial for replacing the original
trigger with a restrictive one.
One of the most important troubles that you may to encounter, if you
are like me anyway, is that you would be unaware of a spring in the
back of the magazine, that pushes magazine cover and forces it to
close. It is very easy to lose that spring by accident. Do not lose
it and pay utmost attention to it while disassembling. Do not forget
to put that spring back. There are two recesses in the back between
which the spring operates.
One of the pictures (see annotation)
shows where the spring that Senco supplies in the kit, goes.
