How much air pressure should I use to run my Bostitch pneumatic nailer/stapler?

Though the maximum pressure rating of most Bostitch tools is 100 psi to 120 psi, the best operating pressures for most applications is 80 to 90 psi. If driving a fastener into harder materials requires a little more energy, it is ok to increase pressure for that job, but remember to reduce pressure when nailing softer material. Over pressure can cause damage to internal components.
