    I think most of us had a facepalm moment when we found this place. So many helpful and non judgemental people. It really is a nice little family.

    I believe #5 is a 10mm x 8mm (1x8) oring. I bought a pack of them for less than the cost of 1 in an Iwata package.

    Correct Both the number 5`s are O-rings and Iwata comes with O-rings that can take Water, Lacquer, Enamel and Urethane paints so solvents will do noting to them I use some WD-40 if Im not going to use it for a while keeps everything nice and lubed

    So do you know the material they are made with? Viton, Nitrile, PTFE, etc?
    Petroleum based oils like WD-40 can degrade some common oring materials over time.
    As I am using water based paints, it really doesn’t matter on the material. And at $6.50 for one Iwata oring, I could replace it 50 times with a Nitrile. Just a little FYI :)

    I use brakepiston lube for my airbrushes. Since the pistons on a brakesystem have o-Rings and this lube is great never gets hard or gummy.
