Re: Air hammer Question
Air hammers are ideal for some specific jobs of craftsmen. Since they do not require your hand to hold the nail stationary, they are safer than conventional hammers. In addition, since air hammers do not involve swinging, they are perfect for projects that require a great deal of nailing, such as installing drywall. This will help you save energy and complete your task more efficiently

100 psi is capable of running the gun
what the problem is the volume of air supplied to the gun
check the specification requiring the air usage for the gun against the volume supplied by the compressor
if you gun requires 20 c/ft of air /min and the compressor is only capable of 15c/ft of air /min, then the volume is too low so the pressure will not build up
modern impact 1/2 guns will operate quite well on 80 psi unless the gun is leaking internally
another point is this-- impact guns come in two configurations-- single hammer and double hammer
double hammer give 2 hits for each revolution of the air motor and there fore use less air to do the job
add the fact with 2 hammers , the torque applied is generally higher than single hammer units
the reality is this , the compressor capacity in c/ft/min should be 2 times that required or used by the tool
No thats not normal real JACK HAMMERS on AIR ??? but its not Milwaukee not Bosch not Dewalt but a China brand? if you are have a real jack hammer then its not the right collum because its placed under Hammer drills? and you have also not possible speaking about maybe a little weight rotary hammer ? because ONLY real demolition and jackhammers are very specially made for the long lasting jobs !!! but the weight and power is very important by use the right tool for the right job the most rotary hammers ( exept brands like Hilti and Duss) are not made for long lasting jobs and are made for only working for a short time. its also makes the great price difference between a hammerdrill a rotary hammer a real demolition or a real jackhammer is much higher price. The tools on air Atlas Copco or Ingersoll for the hard and heavy jobs
If you have bought your tool by a hardware store and it is a real jack hammer go immediately back its possible that you are wrong informed by the seller or the budget was the fact. about the price for the tool maybe you have a real jackhammer but have choose a to little model size machine to do the job or its a budget brand online bought China machine. Its a simple question but a hard answer, difficult questions do not exist but difficult answers sometimes.
Regard and luck by warranty and a very small change maybe it is just only a factory flaw.
if it is an elcheapo drill then it cannot be used for hammering only
it can only be used as a drill or a hammer drill
what you need is an expensive hammer drill ( Ramset or HILTI for masonry work that can accommodate a chisel tool and be used for chipping
however if you want to just chip there are cheap air driven chisels , that will do the job
find a good tool shop and there will be a range of tools that will do what you want
You must be refering to the side seals. common problem. the actual problem with those rear ends is the air breather, which cloggs up and that's when your seals blow out, because the pressure in the rear end has nowhere to go and so your seals get blown out. I just did a set on Monday. Anywho, you will need some specialty tools for this. You will need to remove both rear brake assemblys (rotors, calipers). Than look on the other side of the backing plate, there you will see 4 big nuts that hold the backing plate on the axle tube (rear end). Remove those 4 nuts and that's where specialty tools become usefull. You will need a slide hammer. You need to attach the slide hammer onto the axle right by the studs. Use factory whel nuts to attach. Remove axle out of the housing with few good slides of the slide hammer. Once the axle is out, you need to remove the snapp ring, then cut the colar off and remove colar, then remove the old bearing and thats where the seal is. Big help doing this job is a pneumatic air hammer, which helps you remove the stuff off the axle shaft and the slide hammer to remove the axles out. You will need 2 seals, 2 bearings and 2 collars. You may also need the plates with the studs, which had the big nuts, that you removed in first steps of this repair. Kind of a job for someone that has been working on cars and has the tools to do it. Good luck. Oh ya, change the breather and the fluid in the rear end.
You can add different sanding discs to an orbital air sander to ensure that it is properly set up for a huge variety of different jobs. From heavy duty sanding paper for tough jobs through to buffing cloths in order to get a final polished finish at the end of the job. With most orbital air sanders, changing the disc takes just a few seconds, allowing you to get a variety of jobs done a lot quicker.
The level of pressure used is based on the type of plenishing job to be done. Materials such as copper or aluminum require a low pound-per-square-inch (psi) level because it is easy to form or buff them. On the other hand, materials such as stainless steel need the air hammer's highest psi levels.
Always keep in mind that air hammers are extremely powerful tools. Thus, particular safety precautions should be taken when using them. Be certain to wear safety equipment such as safety glasses and earplugs. Also, when changing the air hammer's bits, always be sure to unplug the air hammer first. Finally when using an air hammer, always be aware of the position of the tool and work piece. The tremendous force that the air hammer exerts can cause the tool or work piece to jump powerfully. This movement could easily cause injury to the operator.
Portable air compressors give flexibility to the job both inside and outside the working environment. They're powered by electric, gasoline or diesel engine. A larger portable air compressor often has its own carrying trailer with wheels and handles. You buy a compressor based on its horsepower, pounds per square inch (PSI) and cubic feet per minute (CFM). Choose a portable air compressor to make work quicker and easier. Figure the amount of power you need based on the type of job and air tools used. Know the cubic feet per minute (CFM), such as 5 CFM for small household tools and 10 CFM or more for wrenches or sanders. All air tools have these ratings. Select a gas- or electric-powered engine. Gas gives a higher reliability for frequent use and portability, but consider electric for enclosed areas for its lack of fumes. Pick an air tank based on amount of use time and tools. Large tanks are best for longer use with sanders or grinders and smaller tanks for less time, like wrenches and air hammers. Consider the pump type you need: belt for heavy use or direct-drive for light home use. The quieter belt-drive pump needs periodic oil changes. Buy an inexpensive, small electric portable air compressor for small jobs. These typically operate from a 12-volt power outlet and inflate a 14-inch tire in a few minutes. Get a 150 PSI, 120 volt motor pancake-type air compressor for home use. These light-use models typically carry two air couplers, allowing hook up of two air tools and adequate 25 feet or more air hose. Obtain a larger PSI portable air compressor for bigger jobs, like nailing, with longer continuous use capabilities.
