If'n it was mine it would get a new piston that takes an oring for piston seal. Easy maintaining after dat!

I'm considering it Walter. Machining a new piston shouldn't be too demanding. I've just got a lot on my plate work-wise for the foreseeable future, so if I can keep the machining/inventing hours to a minimum in my hobby it's a bit less stressful on the schedule. Making a longer aluminum or other material piston with an O-ring or two does seem to make sense.

Good idea boys! Walter is this something you have done that you wouldn't mind sharing pictures of? I suppose I could take down mine this weekend. Make it next week myself at work.

Where is the best place to order O-rings in Canada?

BTW Gerard, I love the classical string instruments on your site! That is one talent I surely don't have is the music gene!

Meh. Making instruments starts with giving a damn about music, then if you have even mediocre talent (me) you can take it as far as you like. I'm not a patient person, though a lot of my clients seem to think I must be. It's more about persistence than patience, a need to get things really right. I think anyone with a craft background can go into making instruments if that's of interest. Just don't bother if it doesn't move you when looking at and more importantly hearing the really great instruments.

Oh, and on the O-ring question; there's a place off Viking in Richmond where they have just way too many O-rings. Can't recall the name, nor find it on Google at the moment.
