I want to print one with the reloading mechanism, i am also thinking about modifying the energy cell to let it hold the batteries.dragonator wrote:This was my biggest print to date. Luckily it is just a lot of parts. None of the parts are incredibly complicated. I wish you good luck printing.
Will you be printing one with or without the mechanism.

Adventurous, I like the idea of making the energy cell hold a battery. It should be doable. If you need help with some things, let me know and I'll see what I can do.
Most of the stuff can be bought in ordinary hardware stores here in the Netherlands. The grub screw were bought at a bit more specialized suppliers, since most hardware stores don't bother with them. I cannot speak for the USA, I do not live there. I think that this would be a good thing to source online.
If your worst case option is an hours drive to Canada, I might have a better option. I still have a small stock and am capable of getting more. Shipping in an envelope is always less than €10. If it is necessary, I could ship the required parts to you. PM me if you have reached this point.
After AGES, I finaly managed to force myself to work on my AER, and it's done! Sadly, I couldn't make it a reloading one, so I had to tweak things a bit, used some plumbers putty, painted silver to hold the necessary bits in place. I think it turned out very well though! Currently printing another Pipboy for my girlfriend, then we'll need to make her a Fat Man, as she's going as a Boomer.
