Mounting barrel support question

Unread postAuthor: Flying_Salt » Fri Jun 29, 2007 3:03 pm

For my marble sniper I'm making a single barrel support much like the ones on the fish killer but because of the way my fitting (seen below) is shaped I won't be able to dremel out the inside so the pipe can slide through. I was thinking of cutting off a section of the bottom so there would be a rectagle-shaped hole. Then the pipe might fit? I wanted to ask here before I tried anything.

EDIT: You can see what I'm talking about on the tee's on the first picture of the fish killer.

Thanks,

Salty

You need a different tee. If you cut off the support tube, how you going to attach it to the down pipe?

if you cut away enough it would.... but it would always be wobbly. your probably better off just getting the right type of tee

Well I wnet ahead and did it all with a non-motorized saw (I ended up cutting across the length of that tee 4 times) and I cut off a little less than half of it. I had to resort to brute force to get it on, but I have just enough left on it so it has a nice n' tight grip. Picture coming soon.

EDIT: Here it is. I'm planning to sand off all the junk and make it neat and smooth.

That worked out for the best, cool. Are you going to glue/epoxy/solvent weld the barrel to the support? Or clamp it?

I might in the future, but as of now it fits tightly and I can pick up and move it around without the tee moving around.
