a real clamping feedneck on a tippy

Well, I have a couple ideas, put your ideas are appractiated.

My idea, take a 3/4 inch alum. tube, cut it in half.
Drill a 3/4 inch hole into the shells.
Weld the each half to the shells.

Cut the alum tube to the desired height.

Then, slip this, http://store.paintballace.com/chitspsufitf2.html , onto the alum tube.

You're done.

Now, is this a good idea?

And do you have any ideas.

Hmmm...I'm a little confused.

That sounds like a great plan. I just hope it will look as good as it sounds.

i don't think the top of your tippy is 3/4" wide i ran into that same problem when i centerfed mine had to add some material to the left half to have enough room for the ball to drop through you can kinda see what i'm talking about in these pics i use "kinda" very lightly

/me busts out tape measure
tigman250

you're on the right track even if it isn't 3/4" you're welding it on so who cares if it isn't it then becomes a matter of blending it in like i did it sounds like a great idea, it's gonna take some head scratching though Thinking

Thanks tigman.

Semi-ly back to the drawing board.
tigman250

sorry didn't mean to burst your bubble. don't forget you can always add material to the gun sides to get the dimension you want it just creates a "bubble" and dosen't really look that bad. i think you have a really good idea stick with it and keep thinking about it, it'll come to you. if i can help out in any way let me know!!
cdacda13

You didn't burst my bubble. dont worry about it.

After looking at, a new idea is almost out. Just have to put it into words
tigman250

not sure how rufas dog does their CF's i think when they bore the hole in the top it runs into the old hole and that gives them the clearance they need. not sure though i've never seen one first hand

Ok, heres what I discovers.

Average paintball is .689 inches.
The bottom of that spyder feedneck is about .7
so, a 3/4 inch hole is too big by .05 inches.

This is where I can't explain it any more.
tigman250

so you need to somehow attach the spyder feedneck directly to the gun???? because you can't make the ID of the feed neck any smaller...correct?

I can't attach it directly to the gun, because then I won't be able to open the gun.

Heres where some people might get confused.

some spyders have high rises. Their diameter is just big enough for the paintball to get though, and let that feedneck slip over it.

Now, if I can get a hold of some of that certian tubing (and the right sized drill bit), it would work.

Confused yet?

I think i'm following you, and if you follow tigmans advice it sould work.

i am confused you stated that the feed neck is .7" with paintballs being .689" that only leaves.011" and your tubing wall thickness would have to be half that so you need tubing with a wall thickness of .0055" the standard printing paper is .004" i hate to say it but you'll need to use tinfoil for your tubing. and you still need ball clearance yet. the feed neck almost has to be bigger than .7" the math just dosen't add up.

just measured the stock feedneck and it's .75" that makes sence it would give the PB about .025" clearance all the way arround, i thnk that .75" is the smallest dia. you should shoot for at any place in the feedneck

I need some with a spyder/spyder clone to measure the feedneck diameter.

Ion?
cdacda13

no
tigman250

my AMP is a spyder knock off and the ID measures .75" and the OD measures .87"

Thank you.

Back to orginal plan.


Im confusing myself now, this doesn't happen often.
tigman250

so now your gonna weld on the tubing halves? ah hell i gotta go to bed can't think any more be back tomarrow ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ
tigman250

what did you come up with CDA?
cdacda13

basicly, go back to the orginal plan.

But, I figured out I wont be able to completely weld the tube to the right shell. So it will be mostly a tack weld.

Then, bondo in the old hole, cut off the little things the old elbow attached to.
tigman250

when you get it welded have the welder build up the area above the old feed hole so he can tie the whole thing in. because when you clamp to it it's going to want to pull the 2 haves of the tubing together putting stress on the area with no weld. this is an interesting project i can't wait till it's done
cdacda13

Thanks, it will be intersting
tigman250

just something to think about but if you used one like this you could machine the bottom flat and put it on at an angle so one screw is on the right half and one is on the left half. just a suggestion
