If you use pneumatic tools a lot, you probably know to take care of them. But if you only use ’em a little, you might let the maintenance slide — not worrying about water in the line, not using a good filter, not lubricating your tools — like some Toolmongers I know. If you haven’t treated your air tools right, and they don’t seem to work quite like they used to, don’t give up hope. Blaster Chemical makes an air tool conditioner spray that one retailer claims is “SO POWERFUL IT BRINGS “DEAD” AIR TOOLS BACK TO LIFE!”
Although I’m not certain about the ability to reunite departed tool souls with their little tool bodies, it should bring them back to their full potential. When Amazon has a 4oz. can for $3, it sure beats new tools.
