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.

My newish SIP TN3/100D v twin compressor will not pump above 100psi !!??


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

Ever since I had This American Standard Williamburg shower control valve I get a terrible water hammer at comfort tempetures. My friend the plumber who installed it pulled the Pressure balance valve out...


NO DONT replace anything > You have what id call water hammer. This happends when water gets in the air chambers, Air chambers are nothing more than a 1 foot or 2 foot long section of pipe with a cap on it. When its working air gets trapped in the pipe and you can compress air but not water, so if the air is gone BANG BANG goes the pipe.

takes 10 mins to fix. turn off the water to the house out side. open every faucet in the house and the hose fauects out side. wait 5 mins and then close everything and turn on the water. You will see ait come out of the faucets it will stop after just a momnet or two.

That should do it. check your tub shower valve and it will work fine

Thanks for asking us to help

Hope this worked for you Tom

It wont hammer when I put a small or large amount of pressure on the hammer. It hammer only a short while when I start the mammer (about 1 second) and the same when I release the button.


Lack of hammering action usually indicates a lack of lubrication or worn piston orings. This hammer as well as many other makita hammers work with a piston moving forward and back within a cylinder. This piston moves a second piston within the cylinder with a pocket of air (pressure and vacuum). If there is a lack of lubrication or orings are worn, you will not get a good hammering action /force out of the second piston. Time for good cleaning and apply factory lube. Parts are at www.toolpartsdirect.com Good luck

This demolition hammer will make the sound like is rotating inside to do the hammering motion, but the shank doesn't do anything at all. what could cause this problem? Thanks.


Large hammers have an air driven piston (an air cushion betweem pistons) and an intermediate anvil that actually hammers on bit. If the cylinder and air cushion piston are dry there will not be enough suction/pressure between the driver piston and driven. Remove lower part of hammer and lube with electric hammer grease. Make sure that orings fit snuggly and the anvil is not jammed. Do not store hammer with the bit pointing up because the driven piston will slide down cylinder and hug driver piston. If the hammer was stored pointing up, turn hammer around and place in stand with nose down in a warm location so that the driver piston will drop into place. Good holidays

You're experiencing "water hammering" it's solvable too.
You can buy anti-hammer add-ons which you can put under a nearby sink, or even on an outside hose bib. This will give the water pipes an air "shock absorber"... since air compresses it cushions the abrupt changes in the pressure where as if it's just water, it'll slam and hammer and vibrate...
Try an anti hammer device added to you supply... you should be able to add it with out too much tearout.
