A 1" ball nose is real close for most barrels.

That sounds just about right, I remember I did some math to find out the diameter of the barrel groove on a cocker and had it come out to something like 1.1" or so. It's starting to look like the original kit will be making a comeback if only out of ease.

What do you guys think.
Would a barrel groove, pump guide and guide rod be too much? I kind of like the look of the lower rod. I have so many billiard balls I can make one of each and just try em all out.

Sorry, just thinking out loud.

Edit:
If you don't mind my asking what measurements did you use for the pump arm? I seem to be having trouble with the pump arm not having full billiard ball around it, I probably have to rework the kit a little bit

A 1", or 1" 1/8" would be the way to go. The biggest barrels around are 1" OD.

To get the pump arm hole, I made a pump arm with one side threaded, and the other pointed. I screwed it into the back block/sled and used the point to mark the ball. Thats also why I used the barrel as the guide. So I had more material for the pump arm.

I know this is coming back from the dead but I've finished all the computer work for the kits so I thought I'd show off the final kit. It's much more refined and a little more accurate. I've remade this project so many times I could probably do it in my sleep.
Here's the final version:







This should start to come together sometime next school year.

Any questions comments? Let me have it.

This is all computer at the moment so I can't really give a real world weight. If I had to guess I'd say maybe a little more than a standard full sized kit, pool balls are pretty heavy.

I'll be adding another picture shortly of another style of main pump guide, no square part to tighten it down.

Edit:
Here's the picture this came from talking to Deus Machina over on the Tinker's Guild. The pump guide is now tightened down using a 1/8 Allen key in one of the holes around the guide.

I'm working on another kit myself. I refined my old one.

I picked up a 1" ball nose for the groove. Works great.


I like the spanner guide. Looks clean, and would set yours apart from others.

Thanks for the compliment and that second kit looks real nice, it seems to fit the barrel much better.
All I have to to now is convince my shop teacher we need a 1" ball nose, it shouldn't be too hard, I managed to convince him we needed a 9/16-24 tap for my 'cocker project last semester.

Oh, shouldn't be hard to convince him on a 1" ball-nose. Useful thing, those.

Push comes to shove, they're a pretty cheap cutter, if you're willing to stick to HSS.

I'll say it again, you did do well on this CAD. Very nice little demo.
