Thats like the 50th complament I've gotten
. Lol no write up is needed. I just sat on the floor of home depot for all of about 5-10 min with a bunch of elbow pieces to get the rough shape in my head and then went home and put it together, but since you asked here you go.
What you'll need to make one like mine. All pieces are 1 inch pvc by the way.
4 90 degree elbows (all for stand)
2 90 degree elbows with 1 male 1 female ends (thats the back part of the tank rest to get it to fit into the adapter)
2 45 degree elbows (barrel neck)(works better then a normal neck cause you can off set the slant inside the hopper to fully fill it without having to pick it up)
6 T pieces (1 cut in half for the barrel. 1 cut down to slim the pod holder)
10 3 way 90 degree elbows (2 for stand 8 for pod holder)
10 3 way adapters (for some reason no one makes a 3 way with all 3 ends the same. 1 end allways has a thread inside so you can drill it out but it's far more easier to just buy the adapters)
1 standard length pvc pipe (think most sell standard lengths at 6 ft or maybee it was 8. Eighther way it's way more then enough)
1 standard legnth of pvc pipe insulation.
1 partrige in a pear tree.
1 can high gloss spray paint.
I'm not going to give you the dementions cause it's irrelivant to the design and actually was sized with an assembled spyder electra. (Shut up everyone was a newb at one point. I really did think it would shoot 30 bps
)If you noticed that the barrel in the pics doesn't sit completely flush on the neck, it's cause of that. In fact if I had it to do over I'd shorten the legnth by around 5-8 inches and not glue the barrel neck so it could be adjusted to fit different markers better.
You should be able to see how to assemble from the pics. What you can't see well in the pics is that the adapters have a hexagon on the outside of them. That pissed me off when I found out no one makes 3 ways with all the same ends inside them and it almost made me scrap the design cause I wanted all attachements to be uniform. I'm glad I didn't cause after I painted and espicially with the 8 on the pod holder so close together it still makes it look pretty uniform. Something else thats hard to see is that their is pipe insulation around the tank rest not just the pod holder. Since spray painting foam is not a good way to get you paint to stay, the pipe insulation is wraped in electrical tape. I know that's cheesy but if you take your time and wrap it slow you can make it look good, and it also then takes on the properties of a pad, almost like a boxing glove. You also have to cut down some of both sides of the T piece on the pod holder to get it small enough that the pipe insulation touches the pods. Everything else is just normaly cut to size and put together. Hope this helps.
