The first real Automag build I've seen. Very cool.

We don't have any that size.

So im going to start on the valve tomorrow
i need a little information though.
1 what type of material are the valve parts made of?
2 the thread pitch on the parts? A lot of these Cad files have the major or minor diameter but not the threads per inch.
If any one could help me out i would appreciate it

the valve front and back are either SS for classic valve, 1/2 SS (front part) and half aluminum (back part) for Retro, RT Pro, E-Mag valves, and Aluminum front and back parts w/SS power tube?

Aluminum on the x valve (maybe all of them?) is a high strength alloy (7xx?) that's good for the pressure and resists cyclic fatigue iirc.
