I've been designing, prototyping and testing this drive system for a few years now and feel it is finally ready to share with everyone. Please check out my posted builds on the list for more on that.
Shown here are pics and videos of the process and how I setup to produce them "in-house". First up in the production run are HDPE versions in 1000mm and 250mm (the same as the other prototype builds). I am working on Nylon and metal versions to be released next.

I'm not attaching any files and am unsure what the proper license is to attribute here. Honestly, this isn't something that can't be duplicated or figured out, just hoping my efforts so far will build interest.
Please direct any questions to the links in my signature and profile page.
