A pair of cufflinks inspired by the Piston - Rod assembly in an internal combustion engine. In fact, these cufflinks are a 1:6 scaled replica of a real Piston - Rod assembly (with a few, unnoticeable modifications to comply with the 3D printing rules).

The great thing about these is that they won't look cheesy on the outside, as they will appear to be plain cylinders with some rings removed.

The Polished Surface Finish adds a lot more realism, as the surfaces that are unreachable for polishing make it look as if it had just come out of casting/forging, while the rest has a mirror finish as if machined. Just the way it looks in a real life piston.

Discrete and low profile, yet classy. Ideal for fashionable mechanical engineers.

This are awesome, well-propportioned and good-looking piston cufflinks. the detail is unbelievable, compared to fine jewelry. The kind of cufflinks any engineer should have.

@bdickason I've just received them (well actually my family did as I'm out of home)! The level of detail is amazing, but you can judge by yourself as I've got some pictures now.

@bdickason Thanks! I actually meant them to include a crankshaft as well, but then they wouldn't fit in any shirt. No I don't have any pictures yet, I've just recently ordered them for myself. Just waiting for them to arrive!
