Did you know you can buy tune-up, repair, and modification kits for your air tools? These come in a wide variety of applications, including "right angle conversion" kits for items such as ratchet air tools, motor tune ups, and individual components of air tools. Those components include crankshafts, anvil retainer clips, and bearings. If you are considering a do-it-yourself repair of your air tool, it's very important to have a working knowledge of the tool before attempting to fix it. Otherwise you are better off finding a professional who can properly disassemble and identify problems with the tool.
