Finding Local Pneumatics store?

Hey I am getting back into paintball and want to get my hybrid autococker running again.

I am looking for a local air supply shop or pneumatics shop that I could pick up w/e o-rings, hoses, fitting, etc.

I am located in Columbus Oh, but travel to Akron area alot.

Tried the Ohio section but hevnt had any replies.

I'm not sure you will find a store with everything you need. You might find orings in one store, hose in another, and so on though. Have you tried hobby shops? Those places usually have an wide selection of oddly specific items.

Have you considering just buying the stuff that you need online? mcmaster probably has all the parts you need but you'd have to know the exact specifications of all the parts and orings. There are lots of sites that specialize in orings. Hoses and fittings can be found at places like eBay, ANS Gear, Paintball Gateway, and a few other places. Palmers pursuit shop is a store that would have everything you listed above and their staff is knowledgable enough to help you find the exact parts you need.

Go to www.clippard.com and find a distributor that is local to you. Most of them will be more business to business, but you might find someone that sells to the public directly.

Most places that carry Clippard will also carry other brands of pneumatic parts, and supplies. Most of those distributors are smaller, local companies. Punch in your zip code, and you'll get a list of LOCAL distributors in your area. Yup, the internet has everything, even a way to find local businesses in your area..........
These guys are local to you: http://www.isaacsfluidpower.com/ Guess how I found them?

For basic universal items like macro line items C O paintball should have what you need. For autococker specific parts you might have trouble even at a pneumatic distributor. It can be tricky to find the right items on McMaster Carr or Fastenal. Unfortunately autococker part stores are in short supply in central Ohio.

The only local from Clippard is
Isaacs Fluid Power Equipment Co.
29 Eastwind Dr #205

In all honesty, the internet is your best bet on this one, especially google. Your more than likely not going to find parts specific to autocockers in home improvement and industrial stores, unless you know exactly what you are looking for. The two shops I knew of in the Youngstown - Akron Area are Underground Sports, which is gone, and The Paintball Sphere, which may still be open. They were my go to for when I needed my autocockers fixed
