Large FART Funnel

Recommended Posts

In my search for a large funnel to pour brass in my FART I found these https://www.swtwater.com/catalog/1342_funnels.htm.  I have to order 3 since they are only a wholesaler. Should be around 100 bucks for three. Anybody found anything of similar size and quality elsewhere? Anybody interested in buying one of these if I order three? LOL

if you were local I'd be in for one for sure, I just use a small coffee can to fill the FART, but this would make it a lot easier

I took the metal ring off a clamp on light similar to this:

Works great and is less than $10.

There were two sizes available, so if ordering online, be sure to get the larger one. 

 

That is a really clever solution!

I just use a cheap (under $20) funnel wherever they sell turkey fryer oil.  These funnels are "supposed" to be used for pouring turkey fryer oil from the pot back into the container.  Cut off the bottom spout and you have a bigger hole for brass to flow into the tumbler.  Never thought to use a clamp light like that...that is brilliant.

I need about 10-12” top opening

Yeah, seen them all. Looking for at least a 3” nozzle end.

"Large Fart funnel", let this sink in....

 

I decided not to do a Google search for that term.

That sounds like a VERY intelligent idea.

Sarge, I am with you on that one, I searched wide but was unable to find what I really liked.

 

Until I ordered a water softening system and it came with a perfect size and shape funnel - for loading resin.  You might try those places, they would probably sell one for very cheap.

 

It is perfect.

Yep those are on amazon for cheap. Thought it might be too light and pop out with a heavy load dumped in. Does it stay in place when you dump?

I like it a lot, I have used it quite a bit and it never gave me any problems.

I bought one of these funnels from Amazon and love it.  I used it 6 times during my wet tumbling and drying process for pins and brass.  Really beats grabbing handfuls of brass or trying to pour stainless steel pins into the tumbler.  Not sure how I lived without it.

 

Thanks.
