Default An Old Friend Passed Away, Yesterday.

I had an old friend pass away yesterday. He and I have known each other since 1986. It seems like yesterday and not 31 years. We used to work together quite and bit and he was always there when I needed him. Anyway, he'll be sorely missed.

You would have never known that he was sick, but he is gone, nevertheless. There were no outward indications of anything wrong. As a matter of fact he was, in all appearances, in excellent shape and not all banged up or worn out like most his age. That alone makes me sad because there was no indications of anything being wrong. Perhaps if there had been I would have recognized it and at least been there to help. I may have been able to save his life if I had only known.

I don't know for sure when he will finally be laid to rest, there have been no decisions made, yet. All I know is that he is GONE!

If I had the ability I would raise him from the dead, but, alas, it is not to be. It is impossible to do so.

So, unless someone here has a source for a BC178 Bumper and a LB3499 seal my Senco SN325 framing nailer is officially dead.

Rest in Peace my little friend.

Hi, sorry I missed you. I have gone to find myself, but if I return before I get back, please ask me to wait.

I'm really sorry for your loss Bill. As we get older these things unfortunately do happen. Even though we make new friends along the way, it is not the same.

Herb, Herb, Herb...I love you! The link for the LB3499 led me to a gentleman in NC that not only has the seal, but also the bumper. So, I have ordered the parts (including a new "O" ring kit).

It looks like my old friend may just rise from the dead...hmmmm, maybe it's prophetic...it is Easter.

I was at my wits end and a lot of DEAD ENDS.

Thanks, buddy!

Here is the link to the place where I found the parts.

The owners name is William Hendricks and he, also, sells on eBay. He even has a YouTube video on rebuilding the SN325
