Re: [DML] Optima Battery...you want fries with that?



The most famous tutorial for the flux is:
http://rookscastle.com/tutorials/time4.html
However, it is impractical because it lists parts you simply can not find 
anywhere.

The flux is one of the more complex replicas to build because the parts 
needed just can't be found anymore. You can recreate these parts if you have 
enough creative skills.
However, I have just revolutionized the best way to replicate the flux parts 
in a way that
has never been done before.
I will soon be selling Flux capacitors that are more detailed and close the 
original than
have ever been offered before, and ironically cheaper.
There are several people out there who have been building Flux's for years 
all using
similar methods. I have figured out a way of doing it that takes all the 
hard work out
and speeding up the production and lowing the costs by completely 
replicating the parts
using RTV silicone molds and composite injection resin casting.
I am, as we speak making replicas of the original glass tubes and brass 
relays that
go inside the Flux.
Past traditional methods used by Bruce C., Doug B., and others were to use a 
1/2"
acrylic rod, drill the center and round the edges to replicate the original 
glass vacuum tube
relay. What I have done is make an exact replica mold of one of the relays 
out of a clear resin.
I also replicated the brass electro-magnetic base.
The detail is better than any other replica available, the parts look like 
the real thing.
Another detail I will keep is the correct spacing of the parts, the correct 
lighting,
chase pattern and speed of the lights, and other details that have been 
previously
over looked.
I am also working on having the electronic board made as a custom printed 
board
that only needs the components soldered on to speed up production.
This simplicity and speed will allow me to lower labor costs and sell them 
cheap enough
that anyone would be able to buy one off the shelf and hang it on the wall 
or put it
in their DeLorean.
I will be doing this to a lot of the BTTF props.
Just keep an eye on http://www.bttfstuff.com for more!
I also plan to do this for some of the DMC parts out there too!
