    That's why they are lifting.
    Either clamp onto something that won't crush at 400psi, or bore your jaws on a taper.

    N1 T1 M6
    N2

    This says if the tool that's...

    ProFluid MCF-20 TSC pump 10 micron filters

    Anyone here use this TSC pump? I'm having a hard time locating a place to buy 10 micron filters for it.
    It's on our Jyundai-Kia mill that we've had for 10+ years if that helps.
