The air leak problem is very uncommon and changing the hose or port would solve the problem easily. Some said that they had trouble sinking 2” nails. We say, check your air pressure and adjust it correctly. It may solve the problem. To be honest, this nailer works best for small or home projects. Heavy-duty works can cause some difficulties.We’re halfway through our review of DEWALT DWC1KIT-B Brad Nailer Combo Kit.

    A: No, you’ll not get any of those.
