I just have a couple of questions. I got pieces of my future DT in the mail at the moment. Was the 8/32" threaded raw coarse or fine?

For my second question, I'll probably sound a little bit lame, but, is there any way to work around having to buy the bottomline adapters for the A-5's? I'm looking at an EXTREMELY ghetto A-5 setup. In the end I might just end up paying the extra 20 bucks to make life easier but I was thinking of just making something similar to this:

or angled like this:

Has anyone tried this before? Did it work, or does it sound/look like it would work ok? I'll probably try it anyway no matter what anyone else says(some call it hardheaded, especially the lady), but, tips anyone?

*Edit to add detail
I forgot to explain the pictures. That's 1/16" steel that's pounded into shape, then drilled with the proper holes. It will be bolted to the crosspiece.

That would probably work. If you wanna be SUPER ghetto you could just run a threaded rod all the way through the hole that keeps the ASA on and have nuts at each end of each handle to hold it all in place and spaced. Or use chain link fence-post clamps and clamp them onto the grips...
As for the 8x32 threaded rod, its size 8 rod, threaded at 32 threads per inch. Coarse and fine usually refer to the TPI. As in, 1/4 coarse should be 20 threads per inch and fine should be 32 threads per inch, so the 8x32 rod shouldn't have any additional options on thread sizing.

You know what? I realised that the threaded rods I was looking at were 3/8th" not 8x32. Didn't realise this until after I posted. Now I just feel dumb. Oh well.

I wont be getting the other half of my kit(the other A-5 and crank) for another couple of days, but when I get it I'll let you know if I have any more questions/trouble on getting things together. I'll probably spend hours finding new and inventive ways to hurt myself before I come up with a sound solution(most likely the original ideas posted in your thread), and wish I would have just bought the dang kit from DOC....

So, anyway, thanks for the info, I'll let you know how it goes.

:D Yeppers, my kit takes about 5 minutes to put together. Guaranteed to work. Only tools needed are the ones that come with the A5.

I sold my DT to a teammate because he wanted me to build him one and I thought it was stupid to have three of them on one PB team...
So now I have this new A5 sitting here and it looks all lonely and stuff...
I have the worst freaking addiction.

well being the insomniac i am... and unable to resist a good old fashioned necro post.... TADA!!!

oh by the way, for a DT worthy sling, i would reccomend using the small cable of 250 lb. test you can get at home depot for 26 cents a foot. i added a few little cable loop makers on each side and for about 3 bucks i have a sling that will support most paintball PLAYERS. HOWEVER to tighten the little doohickies down took an insanely small crescent wrench i just so happened to find. i used a standard set of needlenose pliers and a vice the second time and it worked about as well, if not a little faster. i would strongly reccomend you use loctitie on the tiny screws to keep the cables clamped in. buy the double sided keychain lookin hooks so you can attatch and unattach the sling(s) easily, and fiddle with the length.

i made a slightly longer one for my pod pack as well. and lemmie tell ya, when your shoulders and not your lower back is taking the weight, it feels delicious.... to put it into one word..... or perhaps... scrumtralesence.

if you'd like to see a picture of what i'm blabbering about, just shoot me a pm and i'll forward an email with some pics. otherwise, just go to the wire secion of home depot and be creative. think support, assembly, and attach/detach.

Your my kind of evil. Glad to have you as the XO of Artillerie Regiment 352. I have seen and be on the receiving end of an AutoMag DT. IT SUCKED. Getting shot with it I mean. The DT itself is great if you like fell dragon beasts from the Pit. It will eat you.

I found a strip of Flat Strapping at the hardware store that was perfect for mounting two a5's on, just cut it in half and used two bolts to hold the front, and two screws simply screwed into the bottom of the grips. The rest of the hardware is 'supposed' to be for mounting it to an Arti platform for OK D-Day, but wound up being a perminate part for when it is running remote, the reg doubles as a handle. Or, its remounted on the lower bar for a tank installed on it.
And yeh, I know i don't have cranks on it, and I don't have a second Flatline yet.

Thats a true hammer rig. Two non-matching colored A5's, different barrels, homemade cross bars and posed on a busch light box for the photo shoot.
Awesome, just plain awesome.
