Re: warranty

Since warranties are over and above your legal rights (or if they're not, don't use them) they can be given by anybody. It's usually the manufacturer but it could be the retailer or your friend in the pub if it comes to that. You must deal with whoever gave the warranty. In this case, I suggest you ...

Re: Cold weather air leak!

Any suggestions on the best method to empty the cylinder in order to make the change? Just gently crack open the bolt that attaches the alloy gauge mount and wait until the hissing stops! Make sure you've got spare O-rings (6x1 and BS008) in case one or both get damaged (its a good idea to replace ...

Re: Cold weather air leak!

No problem fitting the 'new' AA filler, but I'd think about the Altaros or Lane quick-fills with the pressure gauge in front, where I prefer it, and in the case of the Altaros at least, a flow restrictor which means you can just open the valve as wide as you like on whatever bottle you are using wit...

Re: FTP 900 question

Thanks Rog. The answer (from Shooting the Breeze) seems to be that most of the air comes from venting the hammer. The S-series hammer runs in a channel which is open to the atmosphere, but the FTP hammer runs in a tube so, if there was no vent, the air in front if the hammer would be compressed as i...

FTP 900 question

A friend of mine has just bought a second hand FTP 900. When we were trying it we noticed a very strong blast of air from underneath the action in the general area of the power adjuster and firing valve. Since there is a foam block covering where the air comes out that looks original, I'm guessing i...
