Craftsmen often prefer a compressed air tool over an electric power tool for certain jobs. Drywall and trim work are both made easier and accomplished more quickly with pneumatic tools. The most commonly purchased compressed air tool duo for homeowners is the pneumatic drill and nail gun. If you are a homeowner shopping for compressed air tools, be sure you understand how different models work and how the power is supplied. Read the manufacturer’s directions for use and maintenance, and be sure to have the proper sized hoses, fittings, and air compressor.

this tells you the ring leak down rates, done correctly
all shops worth salt, know it.
if car smokes, bingo
if only smokes first start up, bad valve seals.

at 200k , this can be normal, if not freq. oil changes or was overheated.

Protect your air tools

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

I have 60 psi of compression on one cylinder in a 1997 Honda accord 4 cylinder what can I expect?

Usually the easiest way to tell is to remove the spark plug of the cylinder in question, put a few ounces of motor oil in the cylinder thru the spark plug hole, insert compression tool and crank over a few then reset compression tool and test. If compression rises then the issue is related to the rings being damaged and the engine will have to be tore down fully to repair. If the oil doesnt make much of a difference then the problem is probably a leaking valve or valve related issue. If you have the knowledge you can inject compressed air with that cylinder and see if you hear air hissing through the intake manafold or exhause manafold as that would support issue being with valves.
Hope this helps

Air leaking on my third machine same problem on all three now they (the shop i bought it in)that i should have been putting oil in through the air valve if this is to be the case i would have thought this...

yes, most air tools require about 6 drops of air tool oil before using and when taking a break for lunch or prolonged usage another 6 more. This needs to be done unless the manufacturer specifically states that it it oil free.

Im going to buy a compressor ! What is the min scfm comp that will run this tool for small jobs on my car?

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

Air Tool consumptions are based on 15 seconds per minute (25%) of tool use.

Usage rates refer to the total time that air is flowing through the tool. If your applications result in more extensive usage, calculate air tool requirements as


(25%) 15 seconds = rated scfm x 1

(50%) 30 seconds = rated scfm x 2

(75%) 45 seconds = rated scfm x 3
(100%) 60 seconds = rated scfm x 4

Your impact wrench is rated a 8 CFM Cubic Feet Per Minute Usage

SCFM is Standard Cubic Feet per Minute (pre-compressed air volume)

I would be more concerned that the plumbing from the compressor tank could support the 8 CFM required by the 1/2" Impact. Remember the Air compressor will recover the pressure loss regardless of size. The only problem your going to have for "small jobs" is if you use too small of an air line to supply the impact wrench you are not going to get the full torque that it will produce to the drive head. In other words... a 1/4" supply line or 1/4 fittings anywhere in the system just isn't going to cut it even at 120 PSI. If you have the patience... a 5 gallon tank compressor that has the output volume required should be all that you need. I have been a mechanic over 4 decades and rarely have to use a 1/2 in impact for very long. Examples of 1/2" vs 3/8" useage. Wheel nuts, crankshaft pulley center bolt, some starters, steering, suspension and rear end parts. Other than that a 3/8" Impact works great.

One other thing you can do if you have an Air-Peen portable tank (with added fittings) is to add that in line with your output hose when your using the impact wrench so that you have longer use times.

I know this does not answer your what SCFM compressor is required question but it will resolve your needs. I just can't see telling someone that is a "small jobs" user to buy a larger compressor when really all they need is more volume for a brief period of time. The re-plumbed 1/2 inch output / in-line Air-Peen tank is a much cheaper and reasonable work around and you can disconnect that tank when your not using the impact wrench.
Lastly... if your inpact wrench has a SMALL male air fitting everything above will be a waste of time. You have to get that volume into the tool without restriction so that the rool will work properly for you.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Air compress pumps up120 lbs of pressure but will not run the die grinder or air drill

These tools use to much air for your mechine.SCMF and cmf refure to cubic feet per minute die grinders air tools air chucks air sanders ECT. need a larger air storage tank to matain the constant level of PSI to have the tool opperate at max profromance for long periods of time. So there is not realy anything worng except the compresser can't keep up with the air output needs of the tool

How do you compress a shock absorber spring

You need a special tool to compress the spring and these are available from the auto shop. Make sure you get a good quality one and be very careful it doesn't slip because there is a lot of stored energy when the spring is compressed.

How many gallons of compressed air will I need to clean 1 pair of headlights with 3M Pnuematic Headlight Restore System?

73 seankim,
You will need to get an Air Compressor. I assume it will take 100's (if not 1,000's) of gallons of compress air. Actual amount depends on how long you run the polishing tool.
