Well, I just got a rainmaker, and it is in pieces.
Bought it out of impulse, and it is going to be a fun project
Here is a picture of how it stands.
The board is disconnected to the 4 way, no battery harness, and no shroud. I figure I may as well finish what was started. From what I know, it is set up with an autococker lpr, and a ccm hpr.
Feel free to help me out along my endever, as I will probobly need it
This will be my journey through which I hope to make a functioning rainmaker
Day 1: Rainmaker arrives, in pieces. I want to get the board and wiring out of the way first. I believe this is how the wiring goes, I need to buy a 9 volt battery harness. Can anybody verify if this is correct?
Looking forward to the info in this thread. I, myself, have to fix a project Rainmaker bought on a whim.

There's a java link on the site with more info.
Mad Marty's old site is also pretty informative:
Is that an old BOA barrel?
BEFORE you hook up that 9v.... WAIT. Thats the older 6v board.
You can tell because it has the 1st gen button-style switch, on/off, and its a 6v board.
No problem. They work just as well as later 9v boards, but you will need to get a 6v battery pack from Radio Shack that holds 4 AA batteries. Or, use a 9v with a regulator. (or get a later style, or aftermarket board).
Later boards had a lever-style switch, and no on/off. The board was supposed to go into "sleep mode" if you didn't fire it after a while. Just as well because the 1st gen had the switch in the shroud, and the shroud was the first thing that people removed and threw away!
Otherwise, all looks like its there. If you get bored, you can always convert to a mech pneu-trigger, like a vector, or a pump like a sterling. both conversions are trivial.
And yes, it is a boa.
Marty is still around...
But you don't have a shroud. So you have lots of options. You can ziptie the battery pack to the reg. As hideous as that sounds, thats the most common way.
I made myself a custom battery box to mount to the bottomline. It still looked quirky, but at least it didn't have zipties.
Ok, so I got the board together, and it is fried.
How would one go about making it pneued?
Sorry to thread Jack, but is there a way to tell what board I have, my only usable board has a micro switch but my harness has the button switch, I have another board but it looks like it is missing some stuff on it, and i can't get pics
