Homemade GB barrel

Unread postAuthor: Spuddin » Fri Sep 14, 2007 9:58 pm

I have searched long and hard for sdr21 pipe so i could make a golfball barrel but i could not find it anywhere i called. I pretty much gave up until the other day when i read a post from one of the spudfiles members about sleeving a 2" pipe into another 2" pipe. well this was the answer i was looking for and i was very happy!
it is not perfect because of the small gap down the barrel but it works for those thats not having any luck finding sdr21 or if your not able to order a gb barrel.

i also tried a 3" slip and it fit a tennis ball perfect.

Great how-to, i may have to try that. i dont have a golf ball barrel, and there doesn't seem to be much sdr 21 in the area, although i haven't tried all that hard to get it. nice work

Excellent write-up. How about adding to the spud-wiki?

I wonder if you could fill the small gap with a piece of pvc sliced from another length of pipe? You sliced the pipe with a table saw right? Can you just run another length of pipe through the saw twice to get the narrow piece?

Another possiblilty would be to find some heavy cord or light rope that fits in the gap. If sized properly, it might even act sort of like a hop-up.

Nice write up, I have been meaning to try this for some time.

For those wanting to eliminate the gap entirely, cut (2.375*pi)-(2.067*pi) = 0.968" (24.6mm) out of the inner pipe.

This barrel should have an inside diameter of 2.067-(0.968/pi) = 1.759", which isn't a great fit for a golf ball measuring 1.68" in diameter, but it is probably the closest thing one will be able to find next to 1.5" SDR 21.

that is a good idea jimmy. it would have to be cemented in and that would call for something the exact size of the inside pipe such as a wood dowel so it would press up against the small piece the full length until it dried. or you could cut it to spudblaster15's measurments to reduce the gap. that might take a couple tries.

btw sleeving this 3ft piece was a challenge and took about 15-20 minutes by myself, 2 ppl would be easier.

Use a dremmel, jigsaw, if you don't have them, you can always use a regular saw, but it would take alot of time

Dremels can cut PVC? Do you need a special bit or something for that?

the little cut off wheels on a dremel work wonders.

yeah, they do, but PVC is relativly soft, so its a little easier to not break them.

ive use the dremel alot on pvc and i can tell u that cutting something very long is a nightmare but it can be done. be sure to have extra wheels. u could use a skill saw and set the blade depth very shallow and take your time. mark a straight line to follow. or u could do like i did and make a ghetto table saw and bolt a skill saw under it.

My parents won't let me use power saws (not that we have any) so I'll just stick to a dremel or use a regular saw. Sometimes, you just don't want to be me... :cry:

If you use a dremel a "Rotozip" bit will work much better than the very fragile cutoff disks.

A Rotozip bit looks sort of like a drill bit but it is designed to cut with the flutes (?) instead of the the bit tip. Usually, the bit tip is smooth and is used as a guide. Rotozips are used for cutting holes in drywall. Check your local hardware store, IIRC, $7 for a set of 10 bits.
