Guys,

Ideas for more stuff:

more monitors (any interest in a remote controlled one for Bumper mount??)
ground base for monitors (can be deployed or stored)

More fittings/valves in 1.5,2.5 and 4" including: suction Siamese, 30 & 45 degree elbows, 4 way hydrant valve, hydrant wye, Storz adapters and finally hose ends (both thread and Storz) Anyone want Butterfly or gate valves???

I'll prpbably only be checking in a couple times a week untill Jan 2nd as I'm off for the holidays & I have loads on the Honey Do list.

Thanks for your support with this store, and I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas & A Happy New year. (and Happy Holidays for the PC people)

Thanks,

Matt

Matt,
I like all of the additional ideas, especially the bumper mounted monitors! Have a Blessed Christmas!

I found models to start the ground base as well as a bumper mounted remote controlled monitor. We shall see where it goes come Monday, when I get back to work.

Wow that looks great Matt!! I was wondering if you could re-produce the "T" handles you find all over a pump panel? I have tried doing it, but can't find anything that would work as good as 3D printing might. Please keep up you're great work here!!

Bill,
How big are they? Any thinner than .030 is difficult to print

Bill,
I take a regular flat head pin, hold it in a pair of pliers, and file the top and bottom of the pin away to produce a "T" handle. Just got home from my second busy late shift in a row, so I can't post any photos.

Matt,
The bumper mounted nozzles are looking AWESOME! Will they be at a lower angle once completed?

David,

They'll be 2 or 3 pieces, so to be positioned as the user wants (within the design of the monitor). I took these after initially getting the models I found imported in to the CAD software I use.

One is coming along.....

The nozzle is killing me at the moment.. it won't mesh... I'll keep chugging along on it... OOn the plus side... everything shown above meshes and showas as printable (except possibly the antenna for the receiver) (on the plus side it'll be used on the second version as well.)

Matt,

I see you do long backboards. have you thought about doing short spine boards?

Image Image

What about CPR boards?
Image

And maybe a Lifeguard max flotation rescue can?

Thanks for looking,
Greg H

P.S. I just placed my first order for duckguns, pickhead axes & hydrant tools. :)

Been lurking at this thread, How about a hose load to fit the AMT ALF pumper

Hi Greg,
Not to speak for Matt, but I imagine that something that big and dense would be cost prohibitive. Keep those ideas coming though. The amount of detail in Matt's items is incredible! I have no financial interest in this. I'm just a very happy customer!

@pyrman - I'll see what I can squeeze in.

@GLFMAA1 - David is correct hoseloads are a bit cost prohibitive. SSB resins have some that could probably be modified prettty easy.

@ HooknlaLaddero1 - Thanks!!!!

I mare stuff ideas, than free time at the moment at work. I've got the Remote controlled monitor as well as a couple others, some more Tools, and all the fitting sets.

This "store" has taken off more than I'd imagined it would, and the demand for more stuff keeps growing.

Matt: thanks for the consideration.

Lyonsperf: fire helmets would be great, I'd love a couple of Cairns 660's and traditional New Yorkers.

during lunch: I'm not sure if they're completely accurate as I can't find much for dimensions on either....

If you guys think they look good, I'll scale them & get sets made up on Shapeways

Most pole tools have wood or fiberglass handles 1 1/4" to 1 1/2" in diameter. Roof hooks (what you have here) usually have a steel shaft which is only about 1" in diameter. The hooks stick out 3-4" on either side and are basically the same thickness as the shaft (the whole head is 6.5" x 6.5" x 1" but it obviously isn't a square ;) ). Standard sizes range from 2-8 feet in length.

Because of the very thin shafts in scale, I'm thinking most of the pole tools would probably be better done as separate heads which can be attached to the appropriate sized styrene rod. That would make them cheaper, less prone to breakage and also take care of the what sizes to offer issue.


On the hose load, my real crude estimate using the cheaper detail plastic would put the material cost somewhere between $30 and $60 depending on the exact dimensions (assumed a size of 1/2" x 3" x 6") and just how much it could be hollowed out. Because of the cost that is probably something best done as a master then reproduced in resin. Rolls of hose and hose bundles / high rise packs might work though.

I ballparked the roof hook at an inch based on a PDF I found with some 2x lumber in the pic. these seem to have an chisel on the end as well.

The PIG axe is the one that was harder to ball park in size.

Hey, Matt. I'd buy the spanners and hydrant wrench for 10 bucks. How soon before they would be available?
