Preface: This thing isn't working perfectly. Darts feed through it too easily and I'm currently getting double and triple-feeding issues. This is however something I have wanted to try making for a long time and it really only involves a 45-degree conduit elbow.
Step1: What the fuck am I doing?
Step 2: No really, this looks retarded. But if I go slowly it seems to be working. 1/2" 4-flute end mill in a lathe drill chuck where it doesn't belong.
Step 3: Huh, it worked.
Step 4: Using Dykem Steel Red Markup Layout Fluid to see how much of the 1/2" OD aluminum tube I need to sand off.
Step 5: Sand sand sand, check fit.
Step 6: Use lathe and drill chuck on the 1/2" OD aluminum tube as well as some rubber bands to keep all the parts in alignment.
Step 7: Apply Super Super Glue for a temporary hold, then tip the part over so the excess glue doesn't work its way inside the elbow.
Step 8: Make a CPVC piece to slip over the aluminum. Had to drill out the CPVC and sand down the aluminum because we want a nice fit that won't require too much force or we risk braking the super glue joint. If it does break take everything back to the lathe and use it as a fixture again.
Step 9: PLEXUS OVER EVERYTHING
Step 10: Let it cure overnight. Also make sure to put it in a cabinet with someone else's cereal so that when they come in the next day they get a face full of glue fumes when they open it.
Step 10: Plug in the other parts and test it.
Step 11: Shoot more darts that you intended to every time.
Step 12: Get frustrated with Wye hoppers because they only work perfectly in certain very specific proportions.
Step 13: ????
