Stillson Hammer Playing Up

Post by minigmgoit » Tue May 28, 2019 8:57 pm

Hey there.

I've had my stillson hammer for about 6 months, bought brand new from Tin Shed Modular here in Australia.

It's started behaving a bit strange. Firstly a couple of the LED's on the 16 sliders stopped working. No bit deal I thought, it still functions. Now slider 11 wont switch off the gate, as in there is always a gate on the 11th step. It's numbers seem to jump around a lot and they only go down as far as 002.

Is there anything I can do to try and sort this out?

Cheers

I’ve had some luck with a can of compressed air. Just cleaned the sliders out and it’s working fine again. The LED’s are still down but it’s not worth the bother to fix it at present.

Contact IME regardless.
Was the module unusually dusty?
Did you wiggle during an outback sandstorm?
