I think he means that you remove the pole from the base. Carrying the base seems kind of dumb to me.I tried that before, but the weight of the base would fall of when running.
If I may recommend something a little better, replace those threaded adapters for normal slip couplers. Doing that will fix the stand problem, while still keeping then upright.
Here's a picture comparing it's thickness to some Ace stuff I just picked up.
I used a light behind it.
Mine is the denser one.
Also, does anyone know a consistent foam that has a snug fit in 17/32?
Am I doing something wrong?
Your weight can move around if you do that.
If you want a perfect dome. Just add the hot glue and before it melts dip it in ice cold water for 10 seconds or less, depening on how cold the water is. And you willbhave a nice round hard tip (no pun please)
I burn a big hole, nearing the outside edges of the foam. Then I drop my weight in and fill up the hole a little past the top. the glue actually fulls some of the foam in, curving the top of the dart.
I was wondering if anyone knows of a good O-ring you can buy to replace/supplement the stock one?
I just don't have any extra night-finder O-rings at the moment.
How Can I take them off without exessive ripping with pliers and sanding? Also what happened to your Mav?
You've gotta take them off. Just use the centre black nub to keep your barrels on semi straight. When I tried CPVCing my Maverick, it didn't turn out well at all, so good luck on yours...
here's the peice
It's only $7 for 100 feet, but I buy it from a location in Atlanta, not online.
It's nice and dense, but pretty small in diameter. If you know what Ace foam is like in 17/32, it's maybe a tiny bit tighter than that in CPVC.
May I ask how you modded said pump?
Sorry for the semi-necro, but I was hoping to discuss this also and didn't want to make a new topic.
I've noticed this also, but my main problems have been with the pump. In my experience, the pump on the 2009 BBBB actually requires modification to be at all efficient. I haven't modded mine yet (except the pump), so I'm waiting to see. Just from putting my hand on the barrel, it seems a little bit weak.
