So I went out and bought a previously leased Viking ...

Actually, it was more like a ex-rental car when I received her.

This is for those of you who havent seen this on PBN . This poor marker is the most abused Viking I have ever purchased. Although I got a deal that was more than fair (actually it was like highway robbery but it was E-bay), I feel I need to vent. I would have posted sooner but I wanted to solve a few minor issues. For the most part, the viking was in decent shape. However I did encounter the following problems. The eye holes were completely filled with mud/paint. I spent 2 hours taking her apart and testing her to find out that the wires for the on/off switch and the solenoid needed to be replaced. The settings on the board were totally wacked (the debounce was set to 52!).The trigger job was the worst trigger job I have ever felt on an electro. It felt like a first gen electro spider, nix that, the spider was better. The feed neck and the sidewinder feel like they were drowned in loctite. I cracked a Halo shell while trying to remove the stupid BP no-rider (the threads were coated with mud/paint). I had to use a special wrench to get the sidewinder off so I could replace every o-ring. So after all of that, I decided to throw on spares of my favorite trigger, my favorite feed neck, and a DC Volumizer . If the person who did this to this marker is reading this, please take a tech class before attempting to work on any other electro marker, I am not kidding. Here are pics of her now.:evilgrin:

And of course a group pic of the immediate family.

$900 is a little more than I would pay for a Viking, especially one that doesn't work from the get-go....

Ebay Auction

But it does look nice with the rest of them.

wow in the auction it looks pristine and he says everything works 100% which is obviously a lie too bad ebay has changed feedback policies now making it impossible to leave negative feedback. major BS there if someone screwed me over it's my right to be able to let others know not to buy from them ebay seems to be playing by the if you can't say anything nice don't say anything at all rule. I've since boycotted ebay until they rectify that stupid decision and I hope the OP does as well

good job making her look pristine good thing she has a loving home now

Well it turned on most of the time, but the solenoid never clicked. So I guess that one could say that it worked. I can fix nearly anything on a Viking short of a broken ram or solenoid, so I wasn't worried. Besides, I didn't think I was going to win the auction because it has my favorite mass produced milling with my favorite colors.

Himurax - thats a fair price but pretty expensive by todays standards, even for a streamline.

The fact that the color is your favorite makes it a bargain for you, though. Glad you got it working well again.

Actualy the buyer can still tag a seller with negative feed back, the only thing that has changed is the sellers can't threaten a negative retalitory feedback since they can only leave a non-paying bidder on the buyers now.




With the DW barrel and Bottle and extra board stuff makes it a fair package, still to rich of a price for some of us.
