Old Project - This is what started me building markers, again.

First, I *MUST* thank a few people.

ChplnStone, who was nice enough to encourage me to take this project on and walk me through how to do it.

BretG, who also was an encouragement.

Rotax Metals

The folks at Cast Bullits for putting up with my insanity and finally relenting and mailing me a few scraps of casting lead so I could solder the patch with a higher temperature solder.

If I have forgotten anyone, and I likely have, please do not be offended, I am simply getting old and the brain is no longer as spritely as it once was.

I can't believe this was almost 7 years ago!

On to the pictures...

Starting with this...










Day 2 - Cleaning







Day 5 (There are gaps due to work/life ) - Removal of the damaged feed tube


Day 6 - Minus one mirror and the arrival of the first order of tube!






Day 7 - Proof that I didn't always have CNC machines at my disposal... Creating a feed tube using a Dremel is possible, just tedious.






To be continued...

Day 8 - The patching of the awful direct feed hole begins




Test fitting




The mandrel to keep the patch from intruding into the barrel when I am soldering.


This process will be continued later


Day 9 - refinishing the stock






Repainted tank bracket



Day 11 - New pump rod and solder arrives from Cast Bullits

Raw material


Completed rod


The high lead content bullet trimmings I am using to attach the patch. This stuff melts at 600*F +, but it only a mechanical bond, due to the lack of tin


Beauty shot of the project so far



Day 12 - Completing the patch (I told you we were going to revisit this subject )

Soldering, using a wet rag as a heat sink


Patch installed


Patch halfway to cleaned up - Fortunately the solder is very soft, but it cloggs up files very quickly. Plus there is lead dust to content with, so all these operations were done inside a clear plastic bag to minimize contamination.


Finished with the patch!



Day 13 - Cleaning up and painting the trigger group

From this...


To this...



Day 14 - Attaching the feed tube and function checking the marker

I remember watching your original thread for this project. It inspired me to make a side tube KMPI-1 with a direct feed patch like yours. Good stuff.
