I purchased a C2006 compressor with the three nailers from Home Depot
and was very happy with it until it started to leak at the air release
valve at the bottom of the tank. Only then did I read about the
problems with this type of compressor. I purchased a replacement
release valve from eREplacementsParts.com and thought that the problem
was solved. However when I removed the old valve did I see how flimsy
the threads were on the tank to hold the value. Long story short the
new valve leaks worse than the old one that was worn out.
I think that I am up the creek and asking for advice and
recommendations for a replacement compressor. I had grown accustomed
to have compressed air but I don't think that I want to replace it in
Before giving up on this one, have you tried
plumbers putty? The type of putty used to seal threads.
Try that one or the other may solve the problem.
Then there is the old solution of plumbers thread with plumbers putty.
One of them might do the job.
And if all fail. epoxy will save that compressor. Try JB WELD
