Phantom Feed tube queston
Without having to fully make one where would one get the feed adapter that you put a sock holder in to keep the balls from rolling out. Looks like some sort of conical reducer on the end of the Phantom feed tube. Don't want to use a lens cover. If need be I can call Mike Cassady but trying to be innovative.
I need it to be aluminum to fit on the tubes I am milling.

Walking without rhythm
Just call mike...
they are only about $6...and not worth the hassle of trying to reproduce your self...
If you really want to though, try a rubber foot from a stool or cane.

As for the plastic bit, the ones I've made started out as 1"-3/4" PVC reducers.
If you use a dremel to carve a recessed trench inside the lip of the coupler the natural springiness of the sock ring (or CCI ring) will keep it from popping out of place.
The blue one I made first, many years ago, and overestimated how deep I needed to dig the trench, which is why it looks damaged.
