Tip & How-To about Air Tools & Compressors
I have been a caprpenter for over 20 years and I have seen alot of air equipment and I want to take a moment to see if I can help anyone with the problems they may be having. I want to talk about air tools because I am not a big fan of electric nailers and staplers.
Pnuematic tools run off of air pressure. Water inside the pnumatic tool is one of the worst things for the tool. The piston and cylinder are there to compress air and water will not compress. Once water is in the cylinder of the tool, it may not have enough air pressure to fire the nail or rotate a blade. The easiest way to fix this is to never get the water there to start with. This can be achieved by draining the air compressor being used daily. I actually drain it just before I use it with the compressor running to force out any moisture that may be in the tank. I also oil my tools every morning and on a long day, I will oil them a second time. The problems I have with tools is due to normal wear and tear because I take care of them. I hope this helps you and you are able to get your monies worth out of all of your air tools
