This is exactly what I want. Any idea on time frame? Is it a rip drive modded to a custom shell?

I'm working on designing the molds right now. Having troubles finding somebody with both the interest and the time to machine the molds.

It is all my design. I used things for inspiration, but no parts that I used came from another loader.

So long as it isn't a remodeled Inception hopper

I don't know how long Simon has been sitting on the Pico, but I started designing this over two years ago.

Keep us updated on the progress. An alternative variation of the winchester hopper is going to turn many heads.

Good enough for me. I saw your second post after I had posted my last one. Whole thing going for you is that it sounds like yours will be smaller and isn't going to use Halo internals (which could or could not be a pro or con) either way I'd say post up a pic!

That's kind of surprising. An injection molding company should be happy to put you with whoever their pattern guys are. If you have good drawings that are Solidworks compatible that will save a lot of time.

I can't afford to go through a company. I designed and made my own injection molder and have one mold designed ready to be built.

Just wanted to give a heads up that I'm not ignoring anyone. I have one geometry issue with the shells that I was trying to correct by hand. Long story, but it's not working out, so I will have to have new shells made. I'm also finishing off another project that until it's finished takes up a lot of my working area in my garage. Once that's done I will be much more dedicated to the loader. Looks like I'm going to give castings another shot and see what the results are.
