What would you like in a CCM repair kit?
I have been thinking for some time what would make a great CCM repair kit - something I could build and ship easily that would take care of any seal problem that you might have on the field or at home.
I have that kit built (on paper) and it would include 30 o-rings that would allow you to service any CCM marker (excluding just a few o-rings on the J12 - and that I will include when the full release of the marker comes out). The price would be around 9 to 10 dollars shipped.
However, how important is including lubrication with this kit?
I have priced Dow 33 and Dow 55 even in LARGE quantities and it is not cheap - it would then have to be repackaged and it would make the shipping cost a little more.
However, I know finding this stuff for just one person means a lot of money and then you often have WAY too much.
So - I have a few questions for you.
1) Do you want lube as a part of the base kit?
2) How much do you think each .5 ounce container of Dow should cost?
3) Do you want lube as an option for your kit (and would you honestly buy it)?
4) Do you want tools as an option (Allen Keys)?
Any answers, please be honest as to what you would buy - not what you think would be cool to offer - would be of great help.
A reg tester and reg o rings and a spot of lube?
Ccm s don't really require and maintenance unless you enjoy taking them apart
Mabye a couple grip frame screws and macro filling o rings for the ccm ones
95 % of the broken ccm s I've seen is due to people trying to do maintenance and not just leaving them stock and alone
I pretty much agree with the person above.
Mabey sell a small oring kit, something like a 5x rebuild tops, package it into the smallest container possible with a small chart on the lid of each size and where it goes. I wouldn't be so worried about the lube is all though, most of us already have our own, if you do decide to package the lube into the kit, try to fit it into the small container that the orings are in so it doesn't just end up being that thing getting squished into the bottom of people's gearbags.
In the end, i'd rather buy a small hard segmented plastic box with an o-ring kit in it before i would buy a plastic bag of o-rings with lube included.
I say just do the orings. It is easy to get lube from any store and most people have it already.
Spyder detents for T2s.
orings mainly. like 5x rebuild
most people have lube,allen keys, reg tester is easy to build because most people have a spare asa.
O-rings, spyder detents, optional lube.
This still applies for the S6's, S6-P's and S6.5's though.
Actually - I have been looking at this. Thinking about it - and I think this has already been done - and the market is small enough that it doesn't really make sense to do again.
I looked at the product the o-ring monkey is putting out - and for 30 bucks he sells a full stocked, sorted kit with a chart on the lid, lube, a pick. This would last a player for years.
I am going to check out their product - but it was fun to think about for a while. ;)
