help me with my leak

Unread postAuthor: bob-a-lu » Thu Oct 25, 2007 7:57 pm

ok i went to lowes today after school and got all these parts for my paint ball rpg (i will upload pics soon). And when i open the bags and i find out i bought a 1/2" to 3/4" male adapter instead of a 3/4" to 3/4" i was pissed so what i did was i took the bushing and dremeled it wider so it fit the 1/2" piece in to the 3/4" bushing and then i hammered it in and it didnt crack in stead it fit!
but heres the problem it leaks a tad bit what should i seal it with and how should i do it?

Why didn't you just take the fittings back and exchange them? Now you will always have the safety factor on your hands, as you may have cracked the fitting, which will eventually cause it to fail. It being used on a pneumatic, it will probably fail horribly.

And if you didnt, you should be able to get it apart again.
Buy a fitting, dont go do stupid things while risking your life, saving a few bucks.



But if you want to seal the leak... maybe epoxy will do it?
