Well for starters always oil before you use it and while using it you must have constant pressure on it or you will wear down the anvil alot faster and the best air pressure is 90 psi (6.2 bar) air consumption is 7 cfm

How to get screw out of chuck

It should be an allen head screw with machine threads. Place a NEW high quality allen wrench into the head of the screw....not a well worn or rounded off tool....OR a cheap Chinese made soft metal throw away allen wrench.

It should have right handed threads, so hold it securely in one hand then with a quick sharp rap with a hammer hit the allen wrench in a counterclockwise direction. The process may take 4, 5 or 6 tries to succeed.

A second option if you have the tools is to use a 3/8" drive butterfly air tool with the appropriate 3/8" drive long stem allen wrench. Again, hold the drill tightly in one hand and in the CCW direction, energize the butterfly air tool to drive the machine screw out.

I use both methods and haven't lost the battle yet...of course there's always the first....

If you have oil in the supply line to the tool from the compressor then it is an oil control issue and a regulator filter issue at the compressor but if you have oil leaking out of the tool into the supply line, then a seal is bad in the tool.

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

Air hammer tips

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.
