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.

    I recently fixed my father’s rarely used framing nailer with a shot of Gun Scrubber to flush out the oil/dust residue, then put a few squirts of Breakfree CLP on the hammer. The hammer was not retracting far enough to position behind the head of the nail. Works like new now!

    If you use a lot of air tools, I could see having a can of this tool conditioner in the tool bag. Just might be the quick fix to get you going till you have the time for a better cleaning / servicing.

    I alwasy wonder if this is just BP blaster in another can. I still use ot this day ” Marvel Mystery oil” in all my air tools. But i always have a can of blaster lying around just in case…..

    You will know if it’s Blaster in another can by that awful stench.
    blaster has to be one of the foulest smelling things.

    Shopmonger, the Blaster ATC is a different formulation, in addition to a little less Naphtha, and other hydrocarbon solvents missing compared to PB formula, it adds a little alcohol to absorb moisture, and is about half mineral oil for lubrication, and a little zinc dithiophosphate which is an anti-wear additive.

    I do not work for Blaster in case you were wondering how I know this, I’m just reading this info off their MSDS sheets for the two products, found via a google web search.
