Default Ghetto Speed feed

I know most of you guys have probably seen this a dozen times but here is what I did, lol....

I laid out my pattern on a piece of paper...






Then once I secured my lid (slim jim lid, btw...), I traced the lines... I put squiggies on the ones that I wanted to cut...





My fit was a little loose so I hit the hopper with some 33+ electric tape...



This was my shake test... I shook it pretty hard... 3 balls came out...



The final deal...

I made one of those out of a pringles can lid once. It worked ok, but I didn't like it. The problem I had was that I couldn't get all the paint from my pod drop in - usually left about 20-30 or more balls in the pod.

I then made one out of the garbage disposal cap and it works much better - easily gets all the paint from the pod into the loader. I think it's that the pringles lid is flush with the loader lid edge and the paint gets jammed up easily when you just dump it in. The GD cap keeps the pod away just a little, and I can push it right into the loader if I need to.

That's cool. This is one of those "first run" type of deals... I did notice that there were about 5-15 balls still hanging out. I usually reload before I'm totally empty any how so I usually lose some balls like that. I guess I'll keep working on my design. It beats paying $15 to $18 bucks for the pro kind this would probably been thrown away so i even feel good about being GREEN lol!
