  1. Hey guys,

    I have some old gas syringes that are sticking and I am just wondering if there is an easy way to fix this.

    I know I saw a thread on it last year but my googlefu has failed me again!
     
  2. We take the plunger parts out and give everything a good wipe out with Ethanol... It cleans any grease and dirt that has collected inside and helps them move more smoothly!
     
  3. Ta for that, I will give it a try then restring them

    Do it one at a time as the parts are not interchangeable
     
  5. Cool thanks for the tip
