    Sometimes the simple things scoot right over your head, I didn't even think of that.
    A small bead on the inside applied with a toothpick would probably take up the slack.

    Brake clean it then some Permatex ultra black.

    Hey Spaz....

    Sorry for the delay but I did talk to Bob and here's what he said.

    Best way to get it fixed would be to send it to Powerhouse Distributing and let them fix it. If you feel confident to fix it yourself, then contact them and see about getting the seal and take a stab at replacing it yourself.

    I think my PE8 dumped some oil the last time I used it. I got it on my hands and wasn't sure if it came from the polisher or if I got something on the polisher first. Really hate it when top dollar tools fail.
