    Just this minute heard back from him. $35 + $7 postage?
    Can't complain about that can I?
    Now I just have to figure out how the cylinder comes out so I can post it to him.

    Can anyone help before I go searching?

    On all the guns that I have pulled apart, the cylinder is just pressed into the housing on an oring. I normall just hit the back of the gun on a block of wood to allow the cylinder to fall out. Or you could hit the back of the gun with a rubber hammer, but this is a little hit and miss as some are quite tight.

    Hope this helps.

    Jim your Jambro framer looks exactly the same as mine of a similar vintage.I bought mine in about '85. I can't remember the model no. because it has sat under the house for the last few years ( dodgy back and I draw plans fulltime mostly now ).
    I think mine suffered a similar fate although I didn't strip it down or look at getting it fixed.
    Mine is one of the few guns I've seen that can take 100mm nails as well- not just 90mm.
    Does yours ?
    Let me know how you go as I'd love to get mine fixed ( I have a big reno coming up with two storeys of framing )
    I have a smaller Jambro ND gun that has gone south as well but both gave sterling service for over twenty years.

    Hi Stewie,
    Yeah, early to mid 80's sounds about right. It was quite a popular gun in its day. I remember keeping my eyes open on building sites for what other builders were using. Seemed to be a 50/50 split this model Jambro or the equivalent Senco. The Jambro was cheaper.

    I see no reason why it wouldn't take 100mm nails. There is certainly room in the carrier for the extra 10mm.

    I am having a real time in removing the cylinder as requested. Prob because I'm being too tentative in my actions. Think I'll just send the whole body. Postage will be more but still affordable.

    Yes, I'll let you know how I get on.

    Cheers
    Jim

    No, not yet mate.
    Couldn't for the life of me get the barrel out of the body casting. I was probably being too tentative in fear of breaking something.
    Found a box the right size to package the whole body up to send that that's where it's still at.
    I've hit a fairly major bump in the road in my life which pushed it way down on my priority list.

    Your post reminded me of it. Thanks. I'll try and get it sent off soon.

    Sad to hear about the bump in the road, I hope it smooths out quickly.

    Just to let you know Robert.
    I received my gun back a couple of days ago. He hand made two new bumpers and fitted a new "O" ring to the main piston.

    Price was as quoted. $35 plus postage.
    I haven't put it back together again yet because I'm getting ready to go away for a while, but I have no reason to believe it won't be fine.

    They were a great company to deal with and I would recommend them anytime.

    Cheers

    Jim, you couldn't PM that companies details to me could you? I'd love to get my gun up and running and it sounds like he did a good job.

    Cheers, Stewie

    I don't know if this is any help to the guys involved in this thread but I just came across an old Jambro brochure that I must have gotten when I bought my nailguns. It may help others trying to figure out which model they have.
    If anyone wants the whole brochure and not just page 5 below send me a PM.
    I'll probably collate all these images into one pdf

    Cheers, Stewie
