ML Steam Driver - Flanged

$5.00
3D printed in black nylon plastic with a matte finish and slight grainy feel.
QTY
Product Description
A LEGO compatible steam driver sized between LEGO's own steam driver, and Ben Fleskes' medium sized steam driver. This one has a flange ans a groove for a traction tire, which is important if you want to drive your modle through these driving wheels. The rubber ture is not included. I recommend thin plumbing o-rings. You can get them at most hardware stores.

PLEASE READ!

Thanks for your interest in my train wheels! They are intended to fit and function as LEGO elements but, because I do not have control over the production process, I cannot make any guarantee regarding the fit and finish of any individual piece. I have made every effort in the design stage to make the axle and pin holes sized correctly, but variations in the 3d printed result will occur. As a result, you may receive a part that will not fit well on an axle or pin. Also, the black parts are dyed, and the dye does not always take perfectly, especially if there is any residue of the printing process left behind. Again, I do not control any aspect of production, and cannot know the condition of the specific part you will receive. Also, in case you are not familiar with printed parts, note that they have a somewhat rough surface, not smooth like injection molded parts. The polished options are somewhat smoother. The colors may not match LEGO colors very losely either, but the part do take paint well.

That being said, I have had a decent success rate with test models fitting and functioning and, as I have had several requests for these wheels, I am offering them here. I do hope they will work for you but, again, I cannot guarantee that.

As an additional note, ML sized wheels do not 'align' with other sizes of LEGO train wheels. If you have a standard small LEGO train wheel, a medium sized driver, a large, and XL and my XXL size drivers running on LEGO train track, the centers of each bigger sized wheel will be one LEGO plate higher off the track than the next smallest. As such ML drivers are not really 'in system' and may cause problems in some designs where multiple wheel sizes are used.

You are welcome to let me know if these wheels worked for you, or if you have requests for future models. I only work on these wheels occasionally in my spare time, so I make no promises that I will actually get around to making people's requests, but I will update requesters if I do. Thanks!
