Question about Air Tools & Compressors
The phone number for parts is listed below, however it has been my experience that Harbor Freight does not stock many parts. If you can't find parts at HF, find a local professional fastener store that deals in air nailers and ask them to match-up a seal (get close). These seals are common to nailers and most framers have a similar size cylinder. If you like to tinker ~ I have found seals that are a bit larger but you can fill the gap with RTV. If a bit small, heat gun will make it stretch a bit. I am a heavy duty tinker-er with a small lathe. I have made these seals by taking a roller blade wheel (from thrift store, used set of roller blades cost about $5 nets 10 wheels) and turn out a high quality seal. The first seal that I constructed was made using a piece of dental Mouthguard material. Mouthguard material comes in different thickness. I used 1/8" thick material. I cut out a circular piece of material that extended past the diameter of the cylinder about 1/2" (if cylinder is 2 inch dia. then disc is about 3 inch dia.) Mouthguard material (or similar) can be shaped by using a heat gun. Remove cylinder and place in vice or stable place. Place disc of material centered on top of cyl and apply hot air until it softens and shape material down to form seal (use headvalve to shape top of seal by pressing valve on top of seal while still hot, spray silicone on any tools to prevent them from sticking to the hot material). Allow material to cool then cut out center with hot exacto knife. Your new seal can be removed then re-installed on the cylinder using RTV sealant. Good luck
