We don't do straight trades, but we can give a trade-in credit. You'll get the best trade-in value if you're looking to purchase a new tank.

Had a tech remove the stem from the tank. But the bottom 2 threads detached and are lodged in the bottle. Have been trying to find someone to safely clean the threading in tank so I can get a new stem put on the tank.

Might could have u do it all if u know how.

Sounds like whoever installed the reg put a bit too much Loctite on the threads. Is it just the threads in the tank, or is there a piece of the reg stem in there as well?

Here are a couple more photos of some of the custom tools we use. If you've ever tried to remove a regulator from a tank, you know what a pain it can be. Fortunately, we have a pneumatic vise made just for the purpose of holding onto the tank.



The valve on the left side of the vise supplies air to the piston, which in turn raises or lowers the vice jaw. The jaws are padded with inch thick pads of rubber, so there's no risk of scratching the tank. The vise is driven by our shop compressor.

Once the tank is locked down in the vise, we use custom tooling to remove or install the regulators. In this picture you can see how we install regs.



The ASTM standard for paintball regulators states that a regulator must be installed so that it takes 18 ft lbs of torque to remove it. By using a torque wrench, we ensure the regulator is properly tightened.

What if we have a reg and want to swap it to get another reg? I know I have 2 SLP regs right now and want to trade or sell one of them for an adjustable reg.

Otherwise awesome idea

Any chance you guys would take just a regulator in trade in towards a new ninja reg?

This idea is pretty good. It's like crossfires old regulators exchange program, but better.

It is just the threads in the tank. The stem came out clean minus a couple if it's threads.

I assumes if someone had a tap they could clear the threads but I do not know anyone I would trust to do it.

I assume the stem is toast though. Not sure how it would fair on a bottle.

We could take a look at it and give it a try. I have the specs for the threads, so getting a tap would be no problem. Obviously I can't guarantee we'd be able to fix it until I actually get it in the shop and take a look. If we can't fix it, I wouldn't charge you anything for the labor.

As for the reg, it sounds like it's toast.

...did you see my question?

Also, Do you have an example of the cert. sticker you guys use on rehydro'd tanks? I want to make sure it's not so huge it covers up my tank graphics like rehydro companies love to do :|

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
