In Topic: Stupid assumptions you made about your first marker

That I would need one Spyder that works and one to tinker on...
That my Wife needs markers as well, just in case...
(One for me, one to mod and one for wife....)
At least she doesn’t complain when she gets shot while taking pictures.

I have finally bought a marker that needs... NOTHING... Wait, what?

Spare O-rings for my markers, screwdriver with interchangeable tips, forceps, electrical tape, 'Teflon' tape, blue Loctite, O-ring pick, bamboo chopstick, jerk squeegees, swabs, micro fiber cloth (dollar store cut into useful squares), several barrel covers, spare barrel, spare marker, spare tank, roll of paper towels, regular towels, spare springs and screws, batteries, solid loader lid , Speed loader lid, spare magnets (Prophecy), Back up loader, Marker oil, crescent wrench, q-tips, bore rod made from plastic clothes hanger, full metric/SAE ball end hex wrench set, lighter and anything else that seems useful, I would haul a rolling tool chest with me if I could get it in the truck.
My Gear bag is like pulling crap out of "Mary Poppins" carpet bag, surprizing amount of crap jammed in there, just so.
Always worry I forget something...

Oh yeah, and manuals for my stuff.

Did take SAE and a Metric folding hex key sets, dismantled them and reassembled one with the hex keys I actually need.

Just saw that Paintball-online has the CORE paintball gun case on sale for $5.99 USD right now.
Couldn't find definitive answers for dimensions on it.

In Topic: Protect your stuff from scratches

I use 3/4 foam pipe insulation with a soda cap hot glued into one end. I use the type with the adhesive on the edges, cut to approximate length, and seal sides together and glue in soda cap. Just keep it clean so dirt does not get inside and cause scratching. Everything else is layered with foam padding and towels in the gym bag, except for my mask which has microfiber dusting cloth from dollar store over the lens then wrapped in a hand towel, and finally put in an old motorcycle helmet bag.

I like the screen protector idea, used the concept but used clear packing tape over the gauges, then popped my Rufus Dawg GageKap protectors over it.

Check local second hand stores for laptop cases. Also check, if you have one, local gun ranges, sometimes they are selling used items like these cases.
