    Upper Cylinder - Question

    Hey Tom and gang,

    I just started using my Shoebox for the first time today!

    Input pressure at 90psi - my 150psi Compressor only turned on once! (Great!)

    Anyway here is a pic with my question. The C-Clip looks good and is in the slot too by the way.

    Does anyone else's upper cylinder move backward and forward while filling? is it normal, or will this cause me some premature wear?


    Pic borrowed from "Clapinski" I just added my question to it.


    Thanks and let me know!

    My upper cylinder does not move at all when filling. But I have noticed that the lower cylinder will start to have lateral movement once it gets above 3,500 psi. I attribute this to the pressure increase.

    Its normal for it to move a bit while filling. We have not had a problem with this. Usually it will stop after the pressure builds up and the orings lock it in place.

    Thanks, I was a little nervous. Pressure was around 3000 psi and still moving.

    I filled a second tank, from 2500 to 4300 in around 45min or so.
    Tom, this thing is awesome. Im loving it!
