Rattle cans are great for projects like this you just need to make sure it’s even and not runny then it looks bad if your careful you can even match a rattle can to a professional paint job it just take some more effort

I have been curious as to what Mrs Steele would look like and personality. But I respect her not wanting to be online, and respect your decision not to push her and use the “Eye Candy” that many other youtubers seem to do.

Hey! Love your content, and I really trust your reviews - that being said, i did buy the kove headphones when this video was released and I havn't gotten any updates about it at all. Just a heads up really, don't want to tarnish your reputation by having sponsors that don't follow through.

You should do a Davie504-esque 'wife face reveal' at 3M subs.
(only up to 4:20 (see what I did there Davie504 fans?) so not sure if you have a face reveal... I will watch on.)
As for wife... I thought you were about 16.

spraypaint is fine, but at least use paint stripper, so thefinish is smooth. also you should put clear coats over the whole thing to prevent damage to the paint job

You could run your entire workshop on solar power with batteries, even the forge, no need for any fossil fuels or gas, I am asking you to please take your workshop and your channel to 100% renewable energy,
If i can run an electric aluminium smelting furnace on one solar panel (400w) and one lithium battery (2.5kwh) and cast useful aluminium objects then you can too. Go for it.

I like to get pee’d on while I sing “sweet home Alabama” in the shower. You like men in wigs that look VERY similar to a woman, whatever floats your boat man lol

I'm sure someone has said this to prep a painting surface. You would want to use something like rubbing alcohol. Brake clean the leaves residue behind.

@sehhi vooty If it's chlorinated or fluorinated. Chlorinated brake clean release of chlorine gas when heated. Fluorinated brake cleaner releases fluorine gas when heated.

My first time back at the channel for nearly 18 months and I believe I know the fix for the hammer piston over stroke. The check valve at the top of the hammer cylinder is only there to allow the hammer to re balance with the driving piston after it has been stopped for a while and to give it an air path if it was fully stroked out upwards. It matters if it leaks but even if the valve is perfect it wont fix the problem. It does appear however that the guide is very loose on the valve stem. If it was my machine I would make a small bush and repair it. You wouldn't want it to tight may be 0.4mm clearance. I would also mention that the seat looks wide to me. A narrower seat surface will help within reason of course.
The problem lies elsewhere. It looks to me like one or each of these things is causing the problem 1~ The motor is running to fast and the momentum of the hammer cylinder is overriding the seal of the driving cylinder and or hammer piston rings. 2~ Your lubricator isn't working properly re enough oil and or the wrong type of oil is being used. 3~ The relationship between the driving cylinder piston stroke and the hammer cylinder is wrong or just out of adjustment.
For an air cylinder to me it looked quite dry compared to other air driven machinery of this sort of vintage. Make sure you are getting enough oil out of you lubricator AND don't use anything to light in there. When these things were designed and made the selection of oils was pretty limited. Use a bit of plain old 30 weight car or motor bike engine oil. The same stuff that is used in a vintage Harley would do. That should at the very least get the best possible piston sealing and is cheap.
The relationship between the driving piston and the hammer piston seems wrong to me. The first thing to try would be a shorter set of dies if you have some. This would give the driving piston a little more room to catch and stop the the hammer piston before stroking out. The driving piston and the hammer are only connected together by air but air acts like rubber in this situation and can compress and decompress. This is what makes these power hammers so powerful and long lasting as there is no mechanical links to wear out every time the dies hit. Is the length of stroke on the driving piston adjustable? If it is perhaps it has been set to long {over adjusted} to get more power out of the hammer than it was made to make. Reducing the driving pistons stroke should prevent it from stroking out in service.
Anyway any of the above services wont cost a lot of money and should sort the problem if not it lies deeper and will need major work and $$$ for stuff like valve rebuilds. Although I have never worked on a pneumatic power hammer I have had 30+ years repairing machine tools so I didn't just type this out for computer practice...
Good Luck
Cheers
