Tool Kit 101

Whenever you go to the field for rec, tourny, whatever, you should bring a kit to maintain your marker. Reason being, your marker breaks down, or an oring blows, or anything like that, you should be able to fix it and just get right back to ballin. You don't wanna have to quit for the day just because you don't have an oring or some pneumatic hosing missing, right?

To start off, buy a toolbox, tackle box, something to organize everything. This is what I have:
Ok. Now, what to put in it: the fun part!

You should have:
-allen wrenches, metric and standard
-phillips head screwdriver
-wrenches
-cresent wrench
-needle nose pliers
-9 volt batteries
-gun oil/dow33/whatever your marker uses
-teflon tape
-utility knife
-scissors
-electrical tape
-towels
-q-tips
-hoses
-orings
-anything else on your marker that may need to be replaced
-locktite
-AA batteries
-Strap wrench
-squeeges
-I also have a spare ASA

Here is a pic of my kit.




Bear in mind this is NOT by any means, a complete "all you'll ever need" tool kit. This is just a place to begin, and to help all the newer players or players who don't realize it's a good idea to bring these things with them. Hope I helped you guys out. Any suggestions, let me know.

-Thanks to pbdan9191 and shortman506 for their ideas.

I know you said wrenches, but more specifically; strap wrenches. I also like to carry some extra AAs for my Halo. Good job though.

if you have a backup gun and/or backup hopper, i would bring those too, it sucks having to sit out or wait for someone to loan you a gun when your stuff is broken.

Add blue loctite. Does the same as teflon without the side-affects (teflon tears away and gets clogged in the gun).

Actually, my box has pretty much the same stuff you mentioned. Plus some Timmy specific stuff. Also mine is for being able to keep my whole team up and running not just my own gun. What you have listed is a great set up for a personal tool box.

The only problem with having a box like that is when I go to a field I don't get to play because people line up looking for repairs....

Leave it to a mod to totally own everyone else's toolbox.

Mine is a small tackle-box with (if i can remember):

- 4 screwdrivers (2 philips, 2 flats... wide & narrow versions)
- 3 box wrenches (for various fittings)
- metric & standard allen keys
- lots of o-rings
- lots of screws/nuts/bolts
- pmi oil
- shocker lube (soon, store just got some)
- bunch of 9v batteries (all my electronics use 9vs)
- water bottle
- extra macroline
- parts kits for ion & e-99
- extra springs for spyders
- off-brand super glue
- blue loctite
- electrical tape
- paper tape
- teflon tape
- box cutter
- wire cutters (need new ones, these are worn out)
- zip-ties
- shrink tube
- spare 9v connector
- sandpaper
- rag (keeps top tray contents from falling out)
- thick purple rubber band (instead of a strap wrench i wrap this around whatever & twist with my hand - works great)

Extra rags, squeegees & spare hopper i keep in my bag.

My kit has something extra not yet mentioned 9at least I did not see it). Soldering iron and solder for those just in case situations.

Dental picks and duct tape. You always need duct tape in a toolbox.

If anyone has anything else they'd like to be added into the toolbox list at the top, i'll gladly add it in. Bear in mind, this is a personal kit for minor repairs.
