Made my first batch of one-way valves. I encased them in plastic tube (carefully using Aquaseal to bond them) to ensure that the hinges don't get gummed up when siliconing them into the bottom of the seat scupper. Some of these are on their way to Mickeymouse, but I am happy to make more if anyone wants them @$A20 a pair including postage(that's about $250 US I believe :lol: )

As an aside... about three months ago, I split one of my ST Turbo fins from the top down 4 inches. I used Aquaseal to glue it back together and they are still working perfectly, even though the mast is visible. Aquaseal is designed to repair wetsuits, so it is extremely tenacious but flexible.

This 3D printing technology is getting better and better. They are way more reliable than paper printers, but I suppose that isn't really saying much.

From a rough sketch, to modelled and printed in 5.5 hours.

G'day Slaughter,
Mate, that's very impressive :shock:
Is it just an optical illusion that your printed part looks smaller than the original?
Did you print this with an exotic 3D printer, or just a home garden variety?
Cheers
