going by average shop rate, times the hours it will take to make a pump handle on a mini lathe: about $180 dollars... unless you're talking about an over the barrel style pump handle or sheridan/PGP style, then it would be like $300+

If you send me the materials you want it made out off I can take a go at if for free, just for some practice.

Just send in a prepaid envelope with it so I can send it back along with a drawing or measurements of what you want.

As far as the lathe itself, I bought kind of on impulse. I had a larger Smithy Midas 3in1 machine back home. That is the one I learned how to do threading and and such. I used to do barrel rethreading between centers since the bore was MT4 size but the bed was about 20 or 22" long so just about any barrel would fit no problem.

Here is a few Ideas that are paintball related.


Feed tubes.



Neson valve tubes and seats



Sheridan Feed plugs.



Dummy 12 gram cartridges for converting to air.

Delrin bolts.

If you do get a larger lathe a 1" or larger hole through center is nice when rethreading barrels or boaring them to take freak incerts.

You can take an old narrow power tube, drill it out to #6 size and shorten it up to work with a phantom style bolt.

Titus has old rental Nelspots for sale (or did). They are fun to rebuild and easy to improve upon. That's the only Nelson I have, now that think about it.

Well here is what I have made so far on it.
- A custom rail bushing to adapt an RT clasic drilled frame to a standard automag rail
- An extension for an autocoker LPC to use it as a pump guide

And what I will try to work on over this weekend
- I will work to re-make NDZ on off shaft that the pin snapped off
- I want to make a SS pistom for my thumper

I also made a few modifications to the minilathe itself, like adding a carriage lock and added some knobs to the change gear cover

I also like the ASA extended idea, I will put that one on my to do list.
