Yeah, Kevin, it was.

They never asked for the dead compressors back, and the freight plus tech costs to repair them would kill it for them anyway. They would not even recover their costs if they were to try to resell them as "new". And I doubt very much that they would try that. Most people/companies are honest; just the few that give the many a bad name, IMO .

BTW folks, I have added some photos to the second post in the thread of the dead dual cylinder one that I repaired. The third post will eventually contain some photos of the new one, and my thoughts on its performance compared with that of the single cylinder, 90L/min original one I got.

Ratbag,

The cases that are a bit light on and have been damaged:- I have in the past used tape to cover the cracks and with the careful application of expanding foam filled the spaces. (usually through a hole I have poked through the tape) You need to be careful no to over do the foam or all you do is distort the sides of the case but it has worked for me and made the case useful.

It also works to fill the back of socket st tray that are so thin they last three minutes and then you end up with 52 pieces of confusion.

Crazydave.

Very true indeed & as they say, it just takes one bad apple.

Thanks for the suggestion, mate. It had crossed my mind, but that's a very short trip these days .
