    Black powder

    Hey guys
    My shoeboax is working awesome. Only detail is the accumulation of black pwder at the bottom. As TK said, check what it is and imo it is coming from the black metal parts rotating.
    Questions:
    - Is that normal?
    - If not what should I do?

    Thanks

    At the bottom where? In the back under the chains? Just in spots if so where exactly?
    Does it feel greasy or oily or gritty or both?

    How many fills or hours running so far? What kind of tanks you filling? What are your fill times?

    Thanks

    It s black under the pistons and on the pistons.
    It is gritty.
    I have used it around 40hrs so far:
    - regular paintball tanks: 4h each time
    - Scuba: one time 14hrs, one time 10hrs

    every 4hrs I put the recommended grease on the rams.

    Take a pic of the sprockets and post them. Are there any shinny areas on the sides of the teeth?
