Marathon Parts and Repair

Post by andrema » Sat Apr 10, 2010 4:02 pm

Does anyone know of a US based repair center for Marathon or a good source for Marathon parts (bezel, insert...etc.)?

Any help would be much appreciated!

Thanks,
Mark

Try contacting Jim Madrid at maxmadco@comcast.net - he's the new Marathon service guy. You could also hit up Jack at IWW - he may still have parts lying around.

What are looking for? I sent Jim a email about replacing the tritium tube in my T-SAR and he said I would have to send it to Marathon :scratch: . They replaced both hands and the battery which I hadn't even noticed was dead for $35 plus $7 for shipping back thru FedEx. Not a bad total I thought.

CSAR? Repair?

:puke:

Good luck, buddy.
I guess I kinda lost control, because in the middle of the play I ran up and lit the evil puppet villain on fire. No, I didn't. Just kidding. I just said that to help illustrate one of the human emotions, which is freaking out. Another emotion is greed, as when you kill someone for money, or something like that. Another emotion is generosity, as when you pay someone double what he paid for his stupid puppet.

I thought so as well. I had heard that replacing the tritium tubes can be a bit pricey so I was suprised when Dave at Marathon quoted me that price with the shipping :thumbsup: .
