If it wasn't for the fact that you'd be hammering all those little teeth on the 3,000,000:1 reducer (which is probably made in Taiwan, out of Taiwan pukemetal), I'd go for that! But then you'd have to have about a 200gal air tank to do it...that darn thing is the hardest workout you'll ever get.
Howie: I thought about taking it out and just buying one and using the one they'd replace it with as a spare, but I really want them to see it and fix it unadultraded...there's something amiss, and if I take all the telltale signs away, they may miss it. But good idea if it wasn't in warranty!
Got my date...August 17th @ 4:00pm to take it in...let the fun begin!
