David - This is a firearm we're talking about here - not an air conditioner - right?

If you are not familiar with this particular weapon ie: never stripped and cleaned it before and do not have a manual; you should bring it to someone to evaluate it for you. Better to be safe than sorry. This is very important. Do not tinker with this weapon if you are not familiar with it. It may be loaded, a round may be chambered already - so removing a clip or magazine will not make it "safe" to dry fire. Switch the trigger to SAFE and keep it out of the reach of those that may not know better. Nearly everyone that accidentally shot someone "thought the gun wasn't loaded".
Don't make that mistake.

If you are familiar with the weapon, take precautions to make sure it is unloaded and safe. If you can't remember how to strip it (and clean and lubricate it), you may find a manual for it online with google. You might have to arrange for purchase of a manual online or at a gun shop if one is not available for free.

You'll want to be sure that weapon is thoroughly cleaned. All mechanisms should be silky smooth when manually operated. The breech / chamber / bolt / ejector pin / firing pin should be clean and free of gun power residue and fouling. Ant springs should be clean and whole. Gas tubes on semi autos should be clear. It is very important that the inside of barrel is clean, unobstructed and free from rust and pitting. There should be a mirror-like quality when inspecting the barrel. This done with a finger or thumb in the breech (but not blocking the opening to the barrel) and looking down the barrel from the end on long guns.

I am wanting to know the approximate value of this 38 special air weight revolver. And the year it was made?


For year of manufacture, you need make, model, calibre and serial number.

Value depends on condition and a gun shop is your best bet for that. Once you know the year, you can Google for sites that sell and that will give you a good idea of value in a ball park figure.

If you Google that, you will find the sites that lists the serials.

The Smith and Wesson forums would be a good resource for you.

Product NR83A2. Lubricate is coming from the trigger and exhaust cover. The nailer is new and I put lubricate in the gun prior to placing the air plug on. What is the best way to drain the excess...


Excess oil will eventually be consumed /blown out of gun, however if you store the gun over-nite with air inlet pointed down, gravity will assist. I find that oil /water will accumulate inside gun especially if compressor is passing oil and/or weather conditions cause system to produce lots of water. Majority of guns that come in for repair suffer from a lack of lubrication. Several drops at start of day should be ok for oil lubricated compressors and maybe more for oil-less. If oil drips out of gun overnight (if stored as stated above) then reduce drops. What actually shortens life of gun is debris that enters gun from handling and that enters hoses during transport. Before connecting air hose to gun (with hose under pressure) momentarily connect a spare quick connect fitting and blow debris out of hose.

jeffjo7,

Your unit is 10 years old and more than likely needs the drives adjusted on the blue and green guns. I have a tip at http://www.fixya.com/support/r6814105-adjust_screen_drive_crt_projection_tvs

which explains the process to adjust the screen drives for the best picture.

Air flow control with a Accuspray 10 series cup gun.


You shouldn't have to control air flow - just adjust fluid to provide a good spray pattern. If you feel you need to slow down application rate you can buy a garden hose shut-off valve at your local hardware store that will thread onto your air line just before the quick disconnect at the gun.
