    Yeah, while REALLY cool...a wee bit too pricey for me. I'll have to stick with my resin one.

    Looks pretty good, Russ, but perhaps just a tad too tall and thin. It's hard to tell though without side by side pics.

    Yeah I think it's too tall as well, and I believe that the base needs to be a tad thicker?!

    Hi guys

    Just to let you know i got the scale of the JP Stabilizer from pics on the CD ref web site, i imported the pics into cad which had a ruler one of them and was able to use this to get the scale of it.

    I have bought one for my MLC JP and will post pics soon.

    cheers

    The stabilizer itself is 1 1/8" tall, 5/16" diameter. It rests on a small round washer 1/16" then a larger washer 1/8"

    So total hieght is 1 5/16" inches high.

    The metric system is more accurate, none of that 1/8th something. I got some measurements for my blaster and I had to spent some time just transfering the inches to mm.

    and 1" is 25 mm

    Hey Russ,

    I have a set of all of your aluminium parts and they are great, but the stablizer seems quite small to me. From the pictures that I had seen of it, I thought it was larger. I've seen other Fetts while trooping that had larger ones. Are you sure that the size is correct? Don't think I'm unhappy with it or anything like that. It just seems too small.

    May 11, 2004, 10:18 PM - Merged: Scratch Built JP - Cheap and Easy Stablizer #22

    I found a very easy way to make my stablizer for my JP.

    I used 1 stainless steel washer (OD 1 1/4"), 3/8" OD chrome toilet tubing, and 1 stainless steel knurled nut (3/8" OD).

    The washer had to be drilled out to accept the toilet tubing. Then all that is left is to glue the parts together.

    I ended up having about &#36;7 invested in it, and apart from the chrome being a little too shiny - it is spot on for the original. The only reason the cost is that high, is that knurled nuts cost! One nut can run you about &#36;3.50.

    Quick - someone send me a digital camera!

    I don't have a way to take pix right now. I changed jobs back in Feb. and lost access to the one I used before. And I'm too far in debt buying Fett stuff to buy one now...

    I got a loaner! Since I couldn't get really close with it, these picures came out a little blurry.

    This is the piping I was talking about along with the knurled nut.


    Simply cut the pipe to the length you want, put glue on the nut, insert the nut into the piping, allow to dry, and you get something like this.


    I apologize for the crappy pix. Bad thing is I couldn't get pic of mine in my JP because I couldn't find it! I think my son may have picked it up
