Looking for Tarantula

Hi,

I know this is a bit off topic. I was wondering if Marc from tarantula paintball is still doing work? I tried emailing machining@tarantulamfg.com but my mail was bounced back.

Tarantula wasn't taking any work last time people were in contact with him.

Yea, he has been semi MIA for a while. I tried to contact him for some mill work several times back in February and March and never got so much as a peep in response.

I found Marc several years ago when he milled my cyborg.

tarantulamfg@hotmail.com

No idea if he's still around.

well

Well thanks for the help. Its too bad, he did great work. On a side note, anybody know of a decent machinist that would be able to remove a stripped frame screw from a marq that has the "Hidden + Recessed" screws.

Destructive Customs does great work and should be able to help you out.

As far as Marc/Tarantula, he took a new job at a different machine shop, and is no longer to do any work on the side after hours with their equipment.

That explains it but why wouldn't he state something on the website. Last time I looked at it, it seemed that milling was still an option. I was really hoping for something reminiscence of a SR1 EvilM...

DC's milling on the evil M is going to look great I'm sure.

There's also that other guy near me in Westfield, MA that mills the evil M's. He's got one with a swirl pattern and one that looks like two tubes.

With enough money, I'm sure having someone machine something one off is possible to find. The kicker is the with enough money part, and also hoping they don't fall off the face of the earth with your stuff.

I know Xmagterror or something on Automags.org does milling on automag bodies. He's made some nice stuff, so you could try there as well.

I still check in once in a blue moon. Or at least when time allows it. If you need someone to look at that stuck screw, try me at tarantulamfg@hotmail.com . Some of the links on the website got screwy, and I haven't updated in forever! I apologize for the laziness with my web appearance!

Any chance that milling may be offered in the near future, or are things on the back burner?

I'll answer your questions in the order they were asked. Yes, and yes. There is a chance in the near future I'll be able to start offering milling again. Things are on the back burner for now though.

I'm almost doing Jim Carrey in Dumb and Dumber "you mean there's a chance!"


Here's to hoping.

Thanks for the support. I wish I could do more right now, but my hands are tied. BTW, Dumb and Dumber, still a great movie.
