1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    I think there is a special tool designed for it mate, but if you've put a grinder any where near a compressed air vessel I would say throw it and get a new one :eek:

    No special tool needed, go on AAOC and ask, someone will give you a link to a video that shows how to do it.

    I put mine in the workbench with a rag round the cylinder,found two small bolts/set screws that fitted nicely into the two holes on the edge of the valve.I then used a large open ended spanner vertically over the valve so the jaws were pressing against the two bolts I had put in,using a smaller spanner I put it onto the larger one and used the leverage to unscrew it.It sounds more complicated to describe than it actually is,and once you put pressure on the two bolts they wont fall out.

    They can be a pig to get out sometimes. I use a collet I made to get the ends out. A C spanner (pin spanner) of the correct size will also work but it is not easy find them in the right size and/or for the right money.

    Shame you are in Surrey, the gunsmith we use made his own tool to undo these, because even though he is an Air Arms dealer, they refused to sell him the tool to dismantle the cylinder on Health and Safety grounds, I kid you not!

    2 hex head bolts cut down and the threaded part ground down to fit very snuggly in the 2 holes then put the cyldinder in a vice and put a large pair of stilsons on the hex head to undo the brass part.
    Some just wont come undone i had one that a when at Tenchs to have the reg seal replaced, asked to undo the brass filler end and it snapped the pins in the tool he uses, so i left it as it was.

    As above, two cut down bolts and either a pipe wrench or large adjustable. Hold the cylinder in a vice with an old leather belt as protection from the jaws. They (at least mine were) are loctited so some heat should help but beware of using that heat as it's easy to kill the seal then still fail to get it off!

    Once you've shifted it once it's vastly easier to shift the next time.
