Compressor won't repressurize at requested setting
(Winston Salem, NC)
Won't repressurize at requested amount, gets too low before refilling.
So I'm trying to drive three inch nails into new wood. The nails aren't getting as deep as I want (they are sticking out .25" - .5") on a Paslode nailer.
The compressor does a fine job at 100-110 psi, but the nails stop sinking all the way in when the pressure dips below 100. I have the requested pressure dial set to 100 PSI, but the compressor won't kick on until 85 psi. I need it to kick on sooner.
The unit only ever fills to 115 psi, even though it is supposed to be a 125 psi compressor. It's about a 9 gallon unit.
Thanks for any help.
