Air Tool Replacement Parts
Air tools take a beating. With the high pressure air used to power them and the strenuous jobs they're built for, their components are bound to wear down over time. With regular maintenance and part replacement, you'll keep both your air tools and air compressor working as efficiently as possible. From bearings to replacement triggers, you can find the piece you need to keep your tool working for you so you spend more time on your projects and less time repairing it. Sears has the pieces to help you make your air tools good as new.
Find the right replacement air tool parts to keep your projects going strong
Within your air tools lie a multitude of small parts that work together to make sure your tools run at their maximum capacity. A defect in even the smallest O-ring or spring can mean a loss of power to the tool that will bring your work to a halt. Maintaining and replacing damaged parts will ensure that you are using your tool at its maximum efficiency.
Two of the most important components in your air tools are the O-rings and the springs. The O-rings are what seal the tool at the point of contact with the air hose. This means that they're under tremendous pressure throughout the duration of use. A cracked or completely broken O-ring means that you will lose partial or complete use of your air tool. The springs are also important when it comes to getting the most power out of your tools, especially your impact wrench. Since they're responsible for keeping everything moving, a worn out spring means less power being delivered to the intended point of impact.
These types of tools rely on a number of fast moving parts. To prevent damage to these parts, you need to make sure things are well lubricated and bearings are fresh. Keeping a good grease gun on hand will get the grease directly onto the parts that are hardest to reach. During extended use of an air tool, it is going to heat up. With too little grease or old bearings, this heat can become extreme and put more strain on both the metal and plastic components of your tools. Grease allows pieces to glide easily between one another, reducing their friction and buildup.
Sears has a number of tune-up kits encompassing anything you might need. Tune-up kits contain O-rings, ball bearings, seals, a spring pack and a number of other small components. These kits allow you to service most air tools and keep them in standard working order. Having a kit in your garage or shop ensures that when a minor problem arises you can take care of it right then and there. Your air powered riveter is an important investment, so be sure to protect it with regular upkeep.
Replacing parts regularly ensures that your air tool doesn't receive any irreparable damage. Sears can help you find the parts you need to ensure that your air tools are in tip-top shape.
