clay...do you do a lot of carbon fiber work?

i'm thinking of switching to carbon to replace all my older fiberglass parts..

i'm still using my 1964 meyers manx, and i'm using parts of a vw roof design to give me a basic smooth shape that i can draw out & mold...

carbon fiber is soOoO0Ooo much lighter & stronger.

the out gassing of glass work only lets me work for a short time, vented etc.

Few people know Kevlar is 13% lighter than Carbon and is often woven together to form a much stronger part because it has the properties of both. Don't ask how I know. It's too long of a story

QT50 speedo gears would be at the top of my list.

So I finally built a printer for larger parts and engineering materials. Specifically ultem ( pictured) but I can print any material at any temperature in this printer. Ultem is a magnesium replacement, that is self extinguishing, and has max operating temp of 250C.

The build envelope is 21" x 21" x 24" and heated. I haven't been here recently so maybe it's best to call if you want something made. 5203495444

You have to send me a part, I can't make a part that I can't measure.

Funny you mention that, I was looking through my parts yesterday and saw that all my vespa battery box cover lids are cracked. I glued one back together and have been transferring it into CAD so I can try 3D printing one.

Re: 3d printed hard to find parts

I second the request for QT50 battery boxes. White plastic. I need 2.
