    I think this is a "general airgun" question not OT ?

    A post from a while pack:

    I have five inches in there. When opened the pellets are all sitting near the surface.

    Tried the link to the maintenance video, but it doesn't work. Is it pretty clear where the lithium grease should go?

     

    Put the lube on the support bushings where the rod slides through. I just smear the existing grease back on the rods every fill. To make maintenance easier, I put the oil in a syringe and the lithium grease in a little jar.

    Another tip I did was mod the cover screws. I notched the holes, and used knurled nuts to remove it easier.

    It came with the silicone oil for the felt, but no grease for the bushings. I haven't put any on (grease) yet. Should I wait to use it again until I do that? What kind of grease do you use?

    Yeah, they have been very responsive with my questions. 

    From their website:

    Lubrication
    The ShoeBox is now equipped with our New Silicone Oil Auto Lube System. A 1oz bottle of Silicone Oil is included in your order. Simply saturate the felt tabs installed at the end of both cylinders (do not over-saturate or silicone oil will drip inside the ShoeBox). To do this you simply remove the front cover and drip a small amount of silicone oil onto the felts (more than an eyedropper full). Monitor how fast it uses up the oil and adjust accordingly. **Use only Silicone Oil! ** Other oils can explode and kill you. You will still need to dab spot of white lithium grease on the lower piston by the bearing support bushing.. See our How To Videos to see exactly how to do it.

    The Motor gets warm to hot. I always run it with the cover on. This pulls the air across the the moter through the fan. Ya…… you only need a couple drops every other time on the felt tabs. The rods and bushings just need a tiny bit of grease applied. The compressor works really good and is easy to service. I have had mine for several years. Good American made product. They always answer with my questions.

    Probably wont find it anywhere locally. BSPP is not common in America. Best order these foster fittings or adapters from a reputable source due to high pressure. You also need a Dowty seal. They are not tapered pipe threads. Mac 1 sells some fittings. http://www.mac1airgunshop.com/co2-hpa-parts-s/1837.htm

    I was hesitant also with electronics…. But the Air Wolf is one of my favorite guns as well. Some shooting strings I put together last year. https://www.airgunnation.com/topic/daystate-air-wolf-mtc-powerpellet-groups/

    WOW!! Killer set-up. I gotta ask: who made than gorgeous hunk of wood on that rifle? Spectacular grain.

    It is the Tiger maple I provided RAW for the stock. https://www.airgunnation.com/topic/raw-in-the-raw-from-lumber-to-finish/

    This is what I did. Rubber mulch will stop pellets. This can be adapted to a smaller size. https://www.airgunnation.com/topic/my-rendition-of-a-portable-targetpellet-trap-lots-of-pics/

    I have the F10 as well. What a simple, easy to service air compressor. I'm in no hurry to fill my bottles. It also keeps the air/bottle from heating up. This gives me a full 4500. If a US product is within reason…… I'm buying it. Shoebox has always given me great service. How much is that worth?

    Clean install!

    All guns should have the option like RAW has with the rail.
