If anyone dose end up making one, I'd love to see pics if it was done differently (different angles cut, overlapping of plastics) and feedback of how it held up when it was shot... I'm hung up with an injury so its unforeseeable when I will be able to test mine.

Or you could use some weed wacker line.


Does anybody have access or friends with access to 3D printing? If someone could come up with an idea for just shells, no lids, no motors or whatever. You could keep cost very down. Make it compatible with Revvy internals. Fast as it needs to be and cheap. Keep the lid the standard Revvy size so you could use the same lids/speed feeds.

Looks pretty cool!

I've got an old 12v Revy sitting in a spares box and i'll probably give this a go. Best part is you can still get replacement shells ~$10 if it doesn't pan out.

to the OP, have you tried this out on the field yet? any issues?

I might try doing an overlap on the lips rather than edge to edge. time to get the dremel out lol

I was thinking the same thing last night. This would be the best route.
