This is my first topic post in this directory so please cut me some slack if this type of post is generally not accepted, but I do follow the code of conduct so I do believe I am fine.

So this isn't a write-up, it is mainly a post to link it to my video on YouTube, as not every Nerfer watches me. But I haven't really found a good tutorial on how to make a speedloader turret anywhere, so this is to help those who want to know how to make one! Also, I am a firm believer of how pictures speak a thousand words, so video speaks...well, in theory, a boat load of pictures.

EDIT: I switched the video thumbnail:

I'll throw this picture for the benefit of the forums who don't feel like watching my video. It's a diagram of how to get your barrels straight and even.
(Hopefully it's not too big, speak up if it is, I'll size it down).

Not everyone can access Youtube.
Many work computers block it, therefore pictures are the preferred method of descriptions.

Nice work though.

This seems pretty pointless to me... Do people really not know how to attach pieces of cpvc and pvc together to form a circular speed loader?

Very...very...very thorough. Nice build though, props for giving tips on getting the barrels straight and consistent. FYI, it's much faster to ream out CPVC with a knife or scissors than to use a Dremel on it. Nice video writeup.

Alright, I understand. Next time I make a video I'll take snapshots for a write-up to post here.

The reason for the over-simplicity is because my viewers are essentially ice's (uin13's) viewers. I think I said enough by saying that. And the part stressed in the video was to help get the pieces straight, which some might find a little difficult.

Buy yourself some pipe cutters (The one with the wheel, not ratcheting ones) and use them to cut the CPVC. You won't have to de-bur the pipe after and to ream it out nicely pipe cutters come with a little black thing on the side that does the job quickly and efficiently. You used a lot of expensive tools and techniques for something that is meant for youtube nerfers too, doesn't really fit your audience.

Thanks! I cover the scissor reaming method in my basic speedloader tutorial.

I've got them, I just didn't use them because of no apparent reason. I also covered this in my basic speedloader tutorial and I am aware of that knife thingy folded in the frame.
