    Here's a note:

    The LOWER cylinder is smaller and therefore has smaller O Rings. Exclamation

    This threw me for a loop when I just rebuilt mine. I'd posted on the Shoebox forum if the lower was the same as the upper in rebuild and was told it was.

    I guess I wasn't specific enough cause I meant this literally, not figuratively. I'll need to be dead on in what I mean when I ask for help again, if I do. Rolling Eyes

    Point is, the O rings are a bit smaller. There are two sets in the rebuild kit. The smaller ones are what you'd want to use. You'll know them when you see them. But this is from a layman's point of view so the techy guys will just have to settle for my description.

    Thing is, I don't think I'll need help anymore (knock on wood) as I've done everything to it BUT the upper cylinder rebuild.

    Working on this thing is SO easy but I still let it intimidate me when I do something new to it. I guess I just get nervous about it. affraid

    Tell you one thing though: That video? That was a LIFE saver and REALLY helped out a BUNCH. cheers

    I'd ran mine about a hundred hours. I didn't keep a log but the thing about my personal set up is that I use an Air Hog Carbon Fiber Tank . . .the biggest one that you could get at the time I bought mine from PA. When I run mine I run it for hours. I run my tank down and then refill the Air Hog Tank.

    This is more stressful to the Shoebox: It stays under more pressure for a longer period of time. But I didn't start using a fan to cool off the cylinders as I ran it until about half the time I'd had it. I think that would have given me more man hours of operation. Dunno for sure but it's the way *I* see it.

    If you count four hours a day and sometimes 6 to get mine back up to 4,500 PSI from where I depleted the tank, for those days that I used it, it would only take about 17 days or so to reach that 100 man hour mark. I can't hit my AGs like I'd like to and sometimes my health just gets in the way but I'm hell when I'm well! And I'll shoot up some air, now, that's for sure! And do remember: I have 9 AGs in my herd: One of those is a Nitro Piston and another a springer so that's 7 AGs I play with, (Um, I mean use for therapy Smile )

    All told, said and done, there is something about having a piece of equipment that doesn't tie you to others for what you bought it to do. I get a certain satisfaction out of tinkering with it, fixing it and being independent---but too, I'm disabled and little things like that mean a lot to me so go figure.

    Many thanks to Tom Kaye for coming up with this little jewel. Really helps out!

    If I had the money, I'd buy another one to do two at once to fill up my tank faster. One day I will but it will have to wait until I get some other things like my bullet making gear! Very Happy
