    Default NOS Plastic Module

    Hey!

    I just had the idea to make me a second set of modules to be able to convert my second set of Nitrous Cams to the shoot through system.

    As i have no possibility to make them out of aluminium i thought about making a module set out of plastic. What do you think about it? We all know that the MPro Cam was sold with plastic modules also. In case of a NOS Cam the tension on the single module will be reduced by 4 as we have 4 of them?

    Any thoughts about that?

    Simon.

    You'd have to be one heck of a machinist to get them all the same. I would assume you aren't thinking of using a rat-tailed file to do this, right? I don't see any reason why it wouldn't work. It'll give you something to do when you're not on the computer. You could concievably even reshape them to make a different draw cycle.

    No i am not planning to do it with a rat-tailed file... :P

    I had some leftovers from a block of Polyoxymethylen (POM) in black. I already finished the outlines of the Module today and will continue tomorrow with cutting the module out of the block. I would like to change the draw cycle to a bit harsher one but in this case i would have to change the original modules also. But we will see, maybe i will play with it.

    I will do my very best to get a perfect working copy of the module. At least i can try it.

    Will keep you up to date.

    Just to keep you up to date.

    Finally finished the first module just before i met the guy that owns the Martin pro shop in germany. Luckily he had a set of X-Modules left that he sold me. No need for plastic any longer.

    So you wanted a set of X-mods. Here, all this time I thought you were trying to change the draw cycle of the feel of the Nitrous cams or get better performance.

    I wanted to do that, too. But if i have the option to get a set of X-Modules instead of a slightly harsher NOS-Cam... I would rather choose the X-Mod.
