  • Patent number: 4304349
    Abstract: A fastener driving tool including a body having a handle and a head portion. A drive assembly includes a driver blade movable along a drive path defined by a nose assembly located below the head portion. A magazine assembly extends from the nose assembly and includes a frame member fixed relative to the tool body, a first track member slidably movable relative to the frame member and a second track member slidably movable relative to the first track member. The track members define a fastener slideway opened for loading of fasteners by movement of the second track member. The nose assembly includes a nose member mounted on the first track member, and movement of the first track member opens the feed path for removal of a jammed fastener. One track member is J-shaped for slidably supporting points of the fasteners and one side of the fastener shanks. The other track member slidably supports the opposite side of the fastener shanks.
