Multitool Mark V 500
Magna Jigsaw w/Power Stand
Table Router w/Stand (Table itself is now junk)
Misc. Related SS Stuff
The stand alone Magna Jigsaw. It needs some TLC and is missing a few parts to return to service.
After having fired it up very briefly. Based on the sound, I think it is out of oil and I felt no hint of air for the air puffing feature. It does run!
Repair parts most likely needed:
Oil (how much, what kind)
502270 Oil Gasket
502239 Pump Seal
Missing parts are:
502234 Air Fitting
502248 Air Hose
I would appreciate any advice and if you have sourcing for parts.
Oil - Any light oil like 3 in one. I use Turbine oil with the zoom spout. Makes it easy to put in. How much? Up to the bottom of the filler hole.
Gasket - Make one from gasket material from an automotive supply store.
Pump Seal - If it is not missing just soak it in the oil above. No need to remove it just oil it. It should come back to life.
Air Fitting - Shown as available from SS for $4.95
Air Hose - It is clear plastic hose. It should be available at a big box store. If not try a tropical fish/aquarium store. It is used with air pumps for aquariums.
