    Hello People,

    I am continuing again with this project.
    I am finishing the new magnetic clutch this weekend and already ordered some parts.
    The manufacture of the prototype does takes some time but as soon as I have it I will be posting here and on youtube.

    Chat soon

    Figuring out how to make installation easier was one of the main issues I still had along with efficiency.
    Although I am still waiting from doc-fire for results, I found out that one of my main efficiency issue was actually my tank having a slow leak.
    I think with respect to cockers you can expect an efficiency similar to a normal mechanical cocker.

    The installation is now even simpler thanks to a magnetic clutch system. The connection between Valve and frame is inserted after the valve has been installed.
    It uses magnets to lock in place. Hard Gold pads and pogo pins will ensure multiple cycles and resistant to corrosion.
    This obviously adds to cost but it will also ensure a long life span.

    I am just waiting feedback from manufacturer about eta of prototype. Hopefully this will be last prototype and we can start production in the next months.

    Hello,
    Still waiting to hear from the manufacturer.
    They told me a part of the design was too difficult and just waiting to hear again from them as to what part was exactly to difficult to machine.
    AS soon as that is done I will be continuing.

    Hello Everybody,

    Not sure where to post this but I got the quote back for the prototype and it is pretty expensive.
    Is anyone interested in buying this next prototype?
    Price is $350 but you will get a second valve at highly reduced rate when it goes into production(this can be negotiated).
    Unfortunately my funds have dried out and the only way I can continue this project is by pre selling the prototype.
    In the past I would sell off the prototype below cost after testing but I can not afford this any more.
    The prototype will take 2 weeks to make after that I will be doing some tests and then ship it your way,
    If you interested please let me know.

    Kind Regards

    Daniel
