    We have a cylinder that we think needs the cylinder rebuilt. A new one is half the price of a new press. Does anyone know of someone that rebuilds these? Haven't asked MEC yet, but they'll surely want premium $$.

    Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

    I ordered the seals and O-rings from Mec and rebuilt the cylinder myself, really not much to it. You can do a search on here and find the part numbers you will need.....Ken Jeffries

    Depends on the age of the cylinder. I believe the old black cylinders cannot be rebuilt.
