    I built these in 3d too.

    EDIT* MEASUREMENTS HAVE BEEN UPDATED.

    Original post:

    Thanks to some amazing photos taken by Braks Buddy at the FIDM exhibit, I was able to do a diagram and measurements of the hand pistons. Any machinists want to make up some? There are several people who would be interested in them. :D

    I have a machinist that lives next door, PM what ever you have and I'll get a quote for us :)

    I'm looking for better pistons myself.

    For some reason the posted image isn't working. I'd love to see your diagram. :)

    I built these in 3d (see top post) but I don't know how to get measurements in there.

    If you look closely at the photo for the cover and poster of the MOM Exhibit you wil see that none of the hand pistons are identical to each other.

    Now I am not suggesting that you make six different one, although that would be hyper-accurate but they are different.

    Just a thought.

    Interesting, I'll have to check that out. I was going from Braks' photo of the C-3po at the FIDM exhibit where it looks like all of them on the right hand at least are almost identical.
