iv seen wooden piston for piston valves not pump heads lol, you should cast a block of epoxy around the all thread in side a bit off your pump pipe then cut a grove in it tiny bit wider and deeper then the O-ring at the lower part of the pump head cut groves to let new air into the pump cylinder.

or get a gas ram off a bonnet from a car in the wreckers its basically a pump just need to drill tap a hole at the bottom and put a check valve there maybe put groves on the bottom of the pump head to let air back into the cylinder.

I actually planned on doing that originally, just didn't know if it would work. Now I know. Thanks. I will try to get this working, I have spent $50+ on it already, so I want it to work by now....

Well, I decided to scrap the hand pump idea for now. Instead, as an early birthday present (3 days away now!) my dad is taking me down to his work and I am getting a load of fridge compressors and copper. I am just going to take the whole assembly with me. Then I have copper tube and compressors. If one or two of the compressors don't work, I am going to chop em up and get to the internals and try and find a piston head, good idea or no?

Stupid idea to try to use the parts out of them but it might be cool to take t apart and mess around with it (it would be cool to me I dunno about you :D ). A fridgy will be much more convenient than a hand pump.

Well, no fridgy after all... But on the upside I made a few tens from my dad's boss for fixing the fridge's. The only problem, which I didn't point out, was that the dumb asses forgot to actually turn them on.... *facepalm*
