IT ARRIVED ALIVE!
For those of you following the story here
, the marker was rebuilt and sent back to me, hopefully not to be shattered once again by USPS. And this time, it arrived safely!
It feels great, the pump stroke is clean. I aired it up with no issues, and put a tube of paint through it without trouble. What more can I ask for? Having a springfeed on this is awesome, I never knew how much I'd like one.
I can not wait to get it out to a field, though I think I might end up shielding it from incoming fire!
Sweet glorious pictures. (Though check the above link for far prettier pictures) Its new home on one of my 2 hanger walls! IMG_0325.jpg Looking good! IMG_0326.jpg Shiny, shiny brass pieces. IMG_0327.jpg
