Nevermind, found it:
http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f35/bott...ebrewer-94812/

When I was bottling, I would just tip the bucket. Not a big deal to lose a couple ounces of beer.

Now that I keg I just counter pressure BierMuncher style when I want a few bottles.

When I saw this thread, I wondered if it should be labeled "NSFW" or not.

Not Safe For Work. It's what you put in the subject line if there's something in it you wouldn't want someone walking by to see over your shoulder. Like... Revvy's dip tube.

Generally, NSFW posts aren't allowed in here, but you'll see it in other forums.

Sorry to resurrect an old thread...but I'm interested in making one. Do you just get a drilled stopper that fits the inside of the bottling valve? So if the opening on the valve is 3/8", do I just use a 3/8" stopper? and where do you get the copper tubing? Can you just get a small length cut at the hardware store? And how long...3 inches? Do you have to bend it yourself?

This is a great mod to the bottle filler! I actually came up with it on my own - before I found this forum - makes it less of a chore.

I got my stopper at my LHBS, and picked up my bottling spigot at the same time. I test fitted the stopper on-site to figure out the best size. As for the dip tube, I bought a new racking cane and used the curved portion from the top for my dip tube. The remaining length has worked well for my BMBF, so I killed two birds with one stone!
