    Ever get to that point

    Where you are so sick of taking a marker apart and teching it that you just go "meh" and run it as is?

    I have one marker that I have literally taken apart probably 50+ times. It works, just not as pretty as I would like it and it would benefit from a good polishing, but I just can't bring myself to take the darn thing apart again. So it's going to possibly stay ugly for awhile.

    Or for another example, I have a regulator with a SS center section with tool marks on it that if it was disassembled I could easily sand/polish the marks out, but I just can't wrap my head around taking the stupid thing apart becuase it just sounds like a (female dog) to do. So the tool marks have sat there for about 1.5 years.

    Anyone else?

    I have a project marker just like that sitting on my bench. I have since moved on to another project and stole some parts from it. Its been banished to the parts bin for being unreliable and a general P I T A.

    Dude, thats a whole nother animal. I have about 4-5 such creatures lurking around my office/mancave in various states of disrepair. I have a Spyder project that I'm pretty sure gets up in the middle of the night and pees in my Cheerios.

    I wish I still had my Spyder. I converted a Spyder SE to low pressure and electronic trigger frame. It was right when Halos came out, so that was the cheapest way for me to get to maximum bps.

    I had a Palmer reg on there, but later moved it to my E2, and put the stock cocker reg on the Spyder.

    Believe it or not, the Spyder with All American barrel and All Star paint was incredibly precise. I pulled off some of my best one shot eliminations ever with that rig.

    In the context of this thread though, the Spyder is the opposite. Extremely easy to tech. Almost as easy as my Mags.

    One I have I can't get the FPS up. With a set of Madman springs and the softest valve spring, underboring, I can barely hit 280-290. Tried it with and without an in inline reg and just doesnt happen. And it is a bear to cock.

    E2 Autococker. I do a nearly complete tear down and lube every 6 - 12 months. I say nearly because I don't have the tool to unscrew the vertical ASA, plus I think it's red Loc-Tited. I also leave the ram alone and only partially tear apart the lpr. I completely clean the solenoid, which always scares the crap out of me, as does unplugging wiring harnesses. I haven't done a ton of research, but I assume these things are difficult to replace.
