just one thought: Why dont you add floaters
looks like there would be plenty of space to add them.
--knyfe-- Your the one who got me thinking on this :
The current leg and knee-brace weigh a total of 6.3Lb for just the one pictured on the
first page. I took paper and lined it off with 1 inch squares to get an approximate # of
sq/inches for the upper part. If i made that socket with a core material of 1/8" Nomex- Honeycomb.
The stiffness would increase by the cube of the extra thickness and almost add enough
bouncy to float the leg.
Next i get rid of ALL the SS and Aluminum pylon and shape the lower part where my cafe-muscle
use to be ; and use the same core material with carbon down to the foot to attach to a delrin socket
I now have the buoyancy to float the leg , and my math tells me it will weigh in the 4-Lb range;
and if i need more i can close off the lower part with a bulk-head to add more.
Next i attach a removable cover made of a day-glow orange so i can see it next time i loose it. Now i don't
need safety-cord to keep the prosthetic attached . It will look about the same as my personality ---
((Loud)) , so they Should fit right in !!!!
I'm gonna need to get an artsy type person to shape the lower part for me, but once i got a mold
the rest will be easy with my composite background. This will be the 16th leg i've made so-far.
Too-Bad --chemosavi-- is such a fricken Dick because that's the kind of art talent i'm gonna need
to shape the lower half.
