    Never say never...I am very careful, and like I said, been using these mods for over three years without incident. The drip tip was one that looked just like my Loki Lab stubbies, and without my cheaters on, I didn't catch it...mistakes happen.

    Careful with them magnets, ifn they ever do find a small rip in a wrapper, they'll dead short that cell and be very hard/ impossible to remove in time. No bueno...

    :DNever, Never, Never!:D
    Overconfident? Maybe, but with the regimented way I maintain all my authentic gear they should never fail (what few clone atty's I bought have not been used for a very long time), the strict build regime I follow on my atty's, the fact that I never over tax a battery (and that I rarely use metal drip tips anymore) my chances of ever having a spring drop due to my error or the gear itself is next to nil. Even if it were to happen I probably have a half dozen new Reo hot springs for the various models in the large divided case that houses all my Reo spares. And as said also have the springs in the two dozen plus Reos that I no longer use.
    Knock on wood? Nah!;)

    that'll be interesting for sure to see what the culprit is. I'm just so thrilled that you have kept this company going! Miss Rob for sure, but you are just a great person to carry on what he started and put your own touches on it!! thanks so much for being so dedicated to quality, and really participating here and letting us get to know you!! :wub:

    Hey Vape, well, it has become very interesting. I sent it back to Eric and between he and Rob this is what they found:
    1. There was an excess of the liquid Teflon on the 510 post, causing the strike plate to not make as good of a contact as desired.
    2. The positive contact had a small burr on its back side, making the connection between it and the battery terminal less solid.
    3. The battery terminal wasn’t performing properly. When I swapped the old one out with a new one, the mod functioned perfectly. Not sure what was wrong with it – I couldn’t see anything visually.
    Now, the second P67 that I bought a week after the first is not firing. There is fire at the 510 adjustable, but, when I attach any atty it will not fire. So, Eric wants the second one back with an atty to see what is going on.
    I'm thinking that batch of P67s has been cursed or I am cursed when it comes to P67s.

    I had to send both my P67s back because they stopped firing. Since I've had them back I've had no trouble with either of them

    Sounds like the battery terminals needed screwing down is all, especially since that screw is what makes the negative side of the circuit and relies on the body of the mod to do so.

    Interesting forensics nevertheless.

    I don't know what was wrong. Both were too new to have problems caused by use.

    Rob did my first one. He replaced the button with a spring loaded button. He also changed the pin and the strike plate.

    Eric did number 2. He did the same as Rob but he also sent me another new pin and plate

    I experienced the problem with too much Teflon sealant on the 510 post myself, back when I converted my P67s to the spring loaded button. That’s why I suggested checking it earlier. I took it back apart, cleaned it off, reassembled, and it worked fine.
    The other issues are just strange.

    Sounds like it might be contagious.

    My newest P67 that I've had for about four months also has a mind of it's own when it comes to firing reliably. Works just fine for a while, then suddenly will not fire at all. I take it apart, don't find anything earth shaking wrong with it, put it back together... sometimes it fires again for a while, sometimes it will still not fire. Which atty matters not. At the moment not, so just set aside. I'm tired of fooling around with it being blind in one eye and not able to see very well with the other so to speak. I have a high end VOM, have long experience as a troubleshooter in many technical/trade disciplines, and a complete set of new adj 510 parts on hand. I could even send it in for warranty repair. But what I do not have right now is the will to mess with it at all for now. I simply have no tolerance with problematic gear anymore when I have plenty of other gear that is not problematic. With it out of sight it's out of mind. I want to keep it that way for now, so let's just leave mine out of further discussion.

    Mines from the very first batch. No problems other then a bad hammertone coat (bubble on the top under the atty) and I tried putting other doors on it and it was too tight :/ thought I could break it in after inserting the tight door a few times to wear out the coating along the door track and knicked the paint on the bottom corner and slightly loosened the coating around the door magnets. :/

    And where might these battery terminals be located on the P67?
