yeah im still building the prototype feed system hopefully when i finish with everything hopefully the design can be adapted for any container thats the plan anyway conceptually it looks function but i can get the cad files to load on my home computor.

so im working a uber large mock up out of ply wood and an old fanbelt and electric motor is there any hardwhere experts who can design a break beam feed stop. for it pretty much the design uses two tiny fan belts modified with shark fin like paddles with the points up two in a type of chain two paralel to each other with enough upward force to bring them up but close enough to each other that the balls cant pop out but not tight enough that they crush in the feed. the paddles are done and the belt design . but right now the only thing actuating the belt is an electric switch and two nine volt batteries and they do pop but they need to be thinned out a little thats why im still building a prototype to perfect the paddles and im waiting for some...ok a ton of help on the board and feed stop but i didnt want to affect the weight ratio in the paddle system by putting a tongue on it so i want to use an eye of some kind but it still needs a board to control it and like i said some simple tweeking and it could feed first strikes with little problem...knock on wood

Carter, you still have interest in this, or is it dead in the water?

This is very interesting but overall this site seems to fill the role of open source/content free use etc etc for the masses. Ideas posted on this site basically have become available to anyone who wishes to emulate the design.

Someone should go through the site and post all autocad, solidworks, solid edge designs and info under one sticky. Take your pick of ideas for your personal home project. I've lurked on this site for a long time and see many good ideas or ones that inspire me to a completely different idea.

Consider this forum one huge conference filled with people who are fanatical about the same thing.
We feed off each other, and it helps us grow. Directly, and sometimes indirectly.
What matters most is progress. But that not all.
We also hope integrity is always the main ingredient.

THE-SHOOTIST Anyone chubbin' like me for this?
mailmanmike Since Monday! That's more than 4 hours though, so according to those cialis ads I should see my doctor.
tlane77 I think for a non-chemical chubby it's 6 hours before its time to see a doctor. So you should be good for another couple hours.
splattttttt I wasn't goin to google "chubbin" because I assumed it had to do with fat. The lard type, not the fun stuff. But what ever feelings Jeff's experiencing, then they must be of the fun like stuff...
tlane77 He's got a woody for your woods.

I like it
Lots of brilliance flows around here. Playing isn't the only appeal to the game and it definitely shines through here.

Paintball to me has always been a sport that is about innovation. Be it design of equipment or on field moves and tactics its always about paying tribute to the old while trying to make it just that more....awesome.
