i wanted a smaller straight elbow adapter for my pilot. so i decided to make a straight elbow out of a 45* elbow from my MR-1. here's what i did.

1. i took the 45* elbow and put it in a vice grip. i then took a hand saw and cut off the middle section.

2. i sanded the edges to make them smoother

3. i super-glued the two parts together and TA-DA! a shorted elbow adapter

here are some pics

the original elbow that i used (45*)

the finished product

a comparison betweenthe feedneck that came with my pilot, and my homemade one

the feedneck attached to my revvy and my pilot

Not bad. The tilt would drive me nuts!!

:confused: is it really worth the time? why not just buy a new feedneck?

Or since you have a revvy, slip it over the feedneck & put a hose clamp on it. Cant get any lower unless you cut the revvy neck then the hopper will sit on the body.

the tilt doesnt bother me that much. i think that it will actually move the balls towards the paddles that move the balls toward the feedneck. i'm gonna get a new feedneck soon, but i want something to make it less top-heavy until then.

oh yeah it seems like a good mod for a temporary upgrade but I would also get annoyed with the tilt after a while...but will it hold?

actually you can't do the hoseclamp trick with the clear revvy's, it has to be the old school black shelled revy's. I do it to my em1 when i don't feel like using the qloader.

my dad says that it won't hold because the super-glue will eat away the plastic, but we will see! i am going to check it this morning.

looks like a nice mod for thoughs who cant get a feedneck right away. Nice work!
