There was a brief article in the August 2021 PIPER MAGAZINE and would like more details on the plans to build and assemble and operations.

@Gcox652021, this was my article, what details do you need? Glad to help.
Joshua, where can download the file for the 3D printed oil fill adapter? I’d like to print one out for my dessicator. Thanks!

Here is the .stl file. I had to compress it for the site to allow me upload it.
Joshua, Thanks! Part looks awesome!
Hi Joshua, I am putting together the parts for a dehydrator. Where did you get your silica beads?

I just finished a homebrew dehydrator and created a 3D print for an oil dipstick to 1/4" barbed fitting - uses a 7/16" o-ring for the seal. If there's any interest, I can see about posting the STL.
Hi, I would be interested in that STL.

Here is the Adapter and the attached STL file (zip form).
Adapter with 1/4" barb fitting for Continental engine (TSIO-360) dipstick. Used for homemade dehydrator. Uses a 7/16" O-ring. Sliced using Prusa Slicer using 0.15mm layers with 3 perimeters, 30% concentric infill and no supports. Printed with PLA and it will melt if used on a hot engine. Some minor cleanup of O-Ring notch may be needed. Fit with a 7/16" OD O-Ring into the groove near the bottom, attach a 1/4" ID hose and it should fit snugly into the top of the dipstick tube. Comments and suggestions welcome.
