I'm using a Sila chuck on my Medai now, but the barb is too large, and it split the rubber hose. I cut the end off the hose, put the chuck in as far as a could, and wrapped about 2 inches of the hose end with dental floss. It's been working fine for a year.
I also got a new piston with a rubber O ring from yellowjersey.org. That works fine as well, but I think I should have tried to make a leather replacement piston myself.
It's ironic that the best cheapest pump on the market is gone, and mostly everything available now is either junk or way expensive.
