    It is 17° outside and I've got cold weather testing to do. (Air pressure drop, any group size variance, speed loss and trajectory doping, etc.)  However, my pump shaft snapped the other day and my new pump won't be here until the beginning of next week probably.  I think I am going through Lead Dust Withdrawal…

    Ouch!  Yup, that's going to really mess with the addiction for sure. I was afraid mine was going to break down cuz I treated it poorly several times in the year and a half I had it.  I knew it would take longer to get parts for the repair than to get another compressor so now I have two and the addiction is still going strong. ;^) I wish you good luck on the repair.

    Thanks!  I treat this pretty good, with frequent oil changes and low-pressure shut-downs, but this was a fluke break I believe.  Too much manufacturing hardness to the core of the shaft and or harmonics in the right spot took its toll.  I like your idea of having two pumps too.  Parts should be coming to repair this and I'll keep it as a spare.

    Man you and me both. I loathe this time of year. The past 3 weekends have had winds blowing 45mph gusting to 70 in the frigid cold mountains where I shoot. I've been dying to test the tune I put on my Taipan 😬

    Looks like a fresh break.

    You are right.  In following that linkthere are several different compressor models with the same shaft breakage in that same spot.

    The replacement compressor came and it is calm with temps in the low 30's, time to do some shooting.

    That back ups my thinking that the AV and the Yong Heng are one and the same. That's the third one in about 3 months. The replacement for mine was $100, probably a lot cheaper for the Yong Heng but it might be just as well to replace the whole thing as I guess your doing.

    @jking Yes I bought a new one.  However, I did contact the seller and requested they replace the thing because it was only three months old and had little use.  They are sending the shaft from what they had said.  I'll see in a few weeks, coming from across the pond and all.
