Default Source for Marchant 1A parts

Anyone forum member ever source internal parts for a Marchant Model 1A (air powered semi portable shrinker/stretcher)? Looking for new leather cup seal for the air cylinder piston, various o-rings, internal springs, etc.

I would like to use genuine Marchant service parts, but efforts to contact Marchant, Beltsville, MD (emailed twice & called once) has resulted in no response whatsoever.

Thanks! JG

Thanks Bob

That's who I emailed twice and who I left a phone message with - unfortunately no response.

I was hoping one of the guys here maybe knew another source for Marchant 1A parts... Thanks again.

Good news - tried calling Marchant again yesterday & was able to contact Richard. He was very helpful and took my order for genuine 1A replacement parts.

Kent - thanks for thinking of helping.

Yes, Kudos to Richard at Marchant for saving the day with new 1A parts. I was getting desperate as deteriorating cup seals, o-rings, etc caused the 1A's to lose their "oomph" when working 1/8" thick CRS for a time sensitive project.
