Abstract: In a driver machine 10, a blank firing prevention mechanism 100 has a feeder position sensor 105 that detects the prohibition position of a feeder 64 of a magazine 60. When a control unit 20 detects the prohibition position of the feeder 64 on the basis of a detection signal from the feeder position sensor 105, the control unit 20 prohibits driving of a motor 52. Thus it is possible to prevent blank firing of a striking part 44. The feeder position sensor 105 is provided to an ejection part 34. Thus it is unnecessary for a wire, which connects the control unit 20 and the feeder position sensor 105, to be extended to the outside of a housing 14, in comparison with a structure in which the feeder position sensor 105 is provided in a magazine case 62 of the magazine 60.
