LP Valve Interest thread / reserve spots

I'm doing it.

I'm making valve bodies in 303, and valve stems (hopefully) in 410 or 17-4. On your own for cup seals... for now. But I'm working on making them compatible.

Valve will have a heavily chamfered inlet and larger port. Should increase flow around 70%. I'm seeing if the shop can put two vent ports on the back for Sentinel users, with threads to let them be plugged.

The valve stem will be identical or close to an AM LP stem out of my Diadem, but no blowback flats. (Gotta use the ports on the valve for that.) Should increase stability and reduce wear.

Depending on whether our machinist does me a solid, these could be very reasonable or pretty pricey. I'll guess $50 for the body and $15 for the stem but I could get the bodies for the cost of material if I don't pick any fights this month...

Who's interested, and how many of each?
If there's enough interest in cup seals I'll source those next, probably in filled polyimide.

Put me down for a valve and cup seal. If you don't end up doing the cup stem and cup seal do you know if the Illusion ones will be compatible?

That's pretty. I'm sorry I don't have one of these markers. How was that side port chamfered?
