Notaclue asked me about using a boardman feeder with the robber screen. To me this would be a great idea. I am prejudice against boardman style feeders because of the robbing that goes on because of them. I couldn't find one in my junk pile, but if memory serves me right, they are designed to slip in a 3/8" opening. If this is correct, all that would need to be done would be to make a 3/8" opening the width of the feeder block in the bottom of the wood bar on the robber screen and making sure the bottom board fully supports the block as well. Otherwise there would be an opening between the feeder block and the landing board.
Here is what the robber screen looks like.

Has anyone tried this? When I find one of mine, I will modify the robber screen and see if it works.
Thanks to David for thinking outside the box.
