Darts repointer question?
Hi guys,

Just received my first darts repointer today from DC and was wondering if when you screw the main thread up and down if it's meant to be very notchy with each turn?

Also does the block in the centre supposed to have play in it?

Just want to make sure it's ok before I destroy any of my darts?

I bet it's similar to the repointer I have from MadHoose. I washed the threads out with soapy water and a scrubbing brush and then dried it off in the oven at 100*C. Then I let it cool down and applied some white grease to the threads and its been good as gold since.

It shouldnt be notchy but there is a little play in the centre section. Be sure to put a little oil on the centre thread when ever you use it.
Shame you missed the £24.99 special offer price before Christmas though

I did buy it at £28ish as I had it saved in my wish list but more concerned they've given me a duff one for it! Also there was no product sticker on the bag like Titan recently had on his from DC, may fire off an email to them about it

Yeah, mine was really gritty feeling that it was locking up in a certain spot. Cleaning it did the trick for me. Oh, and the centre piece (block) feeling loose... that's fine,mine is too and it needs a certain amount of play to slide freely.

Sometimes mine is notchy but it usually fixes itself after a few turns. Probably should put some grease/oil on it.

Will give it a clean tomorrow then and I've already bought some EP2 grease so will see if that helps, if not it's going back Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

Got mine from Darts Corner before Christmas when they were having a 'special' on. Mine also has some play in it, but works fine.

Was yours gritty at all?

Hi,
No, I wouldn't say gritty. I've seen no reason to oil or grease it. I've only changed 2 x sets of points with it so far, it works really well and have found no problem with it, neither do I see one in the future. It is built well and should last a life time.
