GAS PRODUCERS Part 3
I took the detail to the level I felt necessary on the major parts for the gas producer. At that point I built various mold boxes and poured some RTV rubber. Of course I am practically out of rubber and I still have a few two part molds to finish. These parts will enable me to build identical producers fairly fast. The only parts that I haven't worked on yet are the drive train - This is a bit tricky as it consists of a dozen or so gears on multiple shafts. I can either cast each gear and drive shaft, or to build some sort of housing that would enclose the gears - this is semi-prototypical. I also will probably build the feed hopper bottom (the angular part) and cast it.
