Hello everyone, Anshul here. As many of you know, I like making stuff. I recently posted a thread offering machining and design services, thanks to everyone who reached out, projects are coming together nicely!
@Halbj613 reached out to me, and asked about the possibility of mini pneumatic wheels. Making 60 hubs on my CNC router just isn’t possible, but I knew that we had other options.
These will be milled a Haas CNC machine. We have a Cad model mostly complete. These hubs will have the kegel core. The one problem we ran into was what to do with the air inlet valve. If you have any ideas, please share, as in its current form only bolt on pulleys will work (we know that these will be good for DD, so pressfit is important)
Edit: Will work with some press fits (fewer kegel “prongs”)
Before we continue putting effort into this project, I wanted to gauge interest on this, and see what people are willing to pay. Even though I have access to quality machinery, this project will still be very expensive.
The tires and tubes are custom made. My plan was to get a set to test 3d printed prototypes, but shipping on one unit from china was quite a lot. @Linny has kindly agreed to 3d print and test for us.
Please provide any feedback, and share concerns you may have. Also if you have any suggestions, please don’t hold out.
- Not Interested
MAX PRICE WILLING TO PAY
The large holes are for the tube air valve. Again if you have ideas of how else we can deal with the valve, please share. The great thing about this, is that once we finalize the over all hub design, we can continue to tweak the core.
Please let me know if you have questions or ideas!
