Ego feed on Spyder
So I didn't want to buy a CCM feedneck for my Electra, and thought that I would do Vike's idea of putting an Ego feedneck on a Spyder. Well, I did it with the rubber tubing like he suggested, and it wobbled a bit with my Reloader on it (enough to worry me), so I then found that he said that 8 layers of electrical tape would do the charm. . . turned out to be worse. >.<

So I was thinking: If the reason I need a gasket is because the Spyder feed tube is thinner than the Ego feedneck, would it be a good idea to use JB Weld to get it on there permanently? Or atleast, make the tube thicker, sand it down to fit flush with the Ego feedneck, and slot it for an o-ring or two to fit tight?

What year Electra? I did this on one of mine and it worked fine with no oring and/or electrical tape.

NVM, mine was a VS and all I did was take the stock feedneck, cut off the top and it worked great.

I would got to the hardware store, like Ace or True Value and get thicker orings.

UPDATE: I managed to get it on there by making a new piece of rubber tubbing into an o-ring. I made it a BIT thicker than the older piece, and with the glue of the electrical tape, it's stayed on there securely. I did a few tests to see how secure it was, and it worked great! :D

By ferret's request:

The "o-ring":

The end product:

Oh, and an overall shot of my baby (She'll be getting some milling done on the back and trigger guard sooner or later. After that, off to anodizing!):

All in all, kinda ghetto, but it works! :D
