Sorry guys, I deleted the pics. Only one I have now is the finished product. Enjoy (as best you can):
Okay, I'm tired of all the threads saying, "how do I do it? Can I send it to somebody? $30 is way to expensive for milling!" So I'm trying this myself. I only got the milling done, and I don't have a feedneck to test it with, so I'm not sure if it works yet!
If you go ahead and do this much, I'm not responsible if it doesn't work. I made this thread to encourage myself to buy the parts, so people don't have to wait. Okay, here we go!
Step one, admire your body, its the last time it will look like this:
Step two, put body in vise, leave enough room to get crowbar inbetween vise and bottom of feedneck:
Step three, pry feed neck out by slipping tip of crowbar in that small gap, push down, mine slid out like butta:
Step four, use the hacksaw to cut off the two little nubs sticking up:
Step five, spend about 45 minutes filing down the rest of the two nubs:
Step six, now we move onto the feedneck, cut as close as you can to the inside lip on the feedneck:
Step seven, start cuting down, as close as you can to the small part of the feedneck:
Step eight, once you've cut four times, you'll have a square:
Step nine, cut four more times to get an octagon:
Step ten, file down the points of the octagon, make it as smooth and circular as you can (I fail at this), the place it back in your body, place body in vise, crank that vise down to push feedneck back in ( make sure eye/detent holes are lined up):
Step eleven, stand back and admire your possibly FUBAR'd body after about two hours of work:
Hope this guide is right, or else I might have a problem. Again, please don't try this yet, I'm making it to encourage me to continue my project. Please let me know what you think so far. I'll get the ego feedneck within the next couple of weeks, cut the tube so the feedneck sits flush to the body, and tell you haw well it fits. That will be part two of ego feedneck mod: did I **** up?
