    Bullet Master Education

    About a year and a half ago I acquired a Bullet Master that had seen better days. Over the course of months I acquired a manual, parts and Electronics to get it running again. Talk about an education...

    The rebuild was so much learning how it ran at a basic level and getting the parts needed to replace/rebuild the worn out stuff. Then it was on to replacing missing parts, replacing wiring and rewiring for the new PIDs.

    Once it was all together I tested the various systems. They worked on their own, would they work all together?

    Well....yes and no. Yes they worked. No as in not like they should. That's when the learning curve got steeper. All the adjustments that Magma makes before they send one out can not be underappreciated. What a trial. Must have taken me two full days and uncounted shear pins to get it set and dropping bullets like it should.

    There is something magical about watching and listening to it run. Hearing those bullets drop into the tray makes it all worth while!

    Awesome job getting it all working as it should. Can i ask where you got the manual? was it just the one off their website?

    One day i hope to build one based loosely on their design, but with more electronics that will no doubt go wrong

    Friend of mine in the UK had the same version that he had sold. Found the manual and sent it to me.
