No. 002 - a late L

Post by Christian Steinhauer » Mon May 28, 2012 10:21 pm

Hello,

after some investigation and visits in Munster i started my build. I am still making new plates for the back, the front plate with asymetric hatches is ready. Last week I get the basic plates for the bump stoppers back from milling. Next stepp is sawing the sides for the stoppers. Here is a pic from the parts.

Excellent looking parts Christian.

Are they machined from brass ?

Hello Adiran,

thank you. The basic part from the first picture is machined,
the other parts are handmade and all parts are soldered together.
Here you can see all parts not ready:

Hello,

not much done but playing a little bit around. I'm printing my first prototypes, not shure yet about casting or printing them in steel.

> casting

I've been looking at videos on YouTube of "Lost PLA" casting and it seems to generate quite good results. It would mean a significant outlay in equipment to do it myself though.

> or printing them in steel.

That sounds like fun. Make sure you have an Olsson Ruby nozzle though :lol: :lol:
