I'll show some inside pics once we are closer to a final design. Right now there are still plenty of tweaks going.

I've been sick the last few days and have only been working 6 to 8 hour days, most of my time was spent repairing one of our production machines so we can continue manufacturing motors. Got that fixed last night and will be working on the current batch of pullers again today.

I'll take some pics in the morning at the shop. 3 MOA pairs and a shafty version are ready for final surface treatment and assembly.

Here is the batch I have been working on the past few weeks. Still need to polish and seal most of the cans, but otherwise they are ready to slap in arms and seat brushes.

Cut the timing rings from Red G10 this time, nice and purty!

Thanks for the compliments fellas!


G10 is a type of fiberglass laminate, it is the best lightweight timing ring material I have found so far. The next motor version will have even lighter timing rings- none!

Wow John, these are works of art! I can't wait for my chance to snag some.

Is it weird I want a spare set to display in my hobby room?

Thanks BT! We could make you a set of fakies for your trophy room I've been slowly working on my tooling to add nicer and more resistant finishes to the motors. A powdercoat station and oxide vat is next.
