That’s awesome sauce! I’ve always wanted to play with one of those scanners. +1 million for the quick-tach. Pull the trigger on that one.No update in a while. I printed some cab gaskets and sent them to a member to try. I'm now with some extra time on my hands due to Covid, so I thought I would get back to this. However currently I am locked out of access to the 3D printer that makes them, so I can't print my own to try!
I do have a spare stainless airline, so I will try installing the air line on my own truck to verify fitment. Then i can get more of those made.
I welded up the jig to speed up the process of making cab tilt brackets and I cranked out a large batch. I also made 8 pairs for the 406/416 unimogs. All of these are currently at the powdercoater to get coated.
Lastly I borrowed a 3D scanner and will be scanning some parts. Backhoe bucket and Ripper shank done. Next I will scan the loader bucket and try to come up with a model for the quicktach that may be a little cheaper and require less individual fab work. I plan to scan the front end of the mog for designing my 18K lb winch mount that will fit with the loader. I plan to scan the Loader attachment at the front of the frame and the backhoe attachment at the rear for future attachment design. Anything else I should scan while I have a moment? I was thinking about the Engine and engine cover so I could see how tight it is for a future turbo install. However, based on how slowly I get to these things, that may be a few decades.
