I did the SM 5000 barrel relocation mod, and when i shortened the air tubeing, it now leaks from the connection when I pump it. What should I use to get an air tight seal. My hot glue is not working. I've heard plumbers goop is good. Is it sold at a local hardware store, or are their better types of airtight glues?
Thanx

Some people say epoxy doesn't work, but I used it to make a seal on my sm1500 and it worked perfectly, just make sure you use quite abit of it ,more than you need jsut to make sure it's airtight.

I've done this Mod, very well I might add. Now, the same thing happens to everyone, and the only solution is to use a glue. Hot glue, although pretty airtight, snaps off. Now, Plumbers Goop is the best glue out there, and is completely airtight. Use it. It is widely availible, always in the plumbing section of the hardware store. Now, just use a toothpick, and apply it evenly around the stem of the airtank where the hose goes on. It will work. Then, for extra support, add some on the outside.

neg. epoxy, plumbers goop, glue etc. is all unsuitable for this job. hose clamp, go buy a hose clamp for vinyl tubing, you'll find it right next to the vinyl tubing. it's a little metal band that clicks tight with a screwdriver.

How does that work for thinner tubing that goes inside the hole not over it?

Um, well, on the Sm5k the tubing fits over a barbed peg. What gun are you thinking of?
