I was scrolling through the NMW page and I found this.
I know it isn't based off of my writeup because that was just released very recently, but I think this was based off of my first version. I mean look at this thing. It has the 1.25" plunger tube with a 1" priming tube. I did post my first version 6-7 months ago and I posted the video on it 6 months ago. Both of these things were very in depth and they explained the mechanism in detail. I feel like this guy must have based it off of my design. I just got really excited when I saw this because I've wanted someone to build my simplified version of MIG's design for so long. What do you think about this? Do you think the guy designed this all by himself or do you think he saw my video and post and based it off of that?
I talked to the guy who made this and he said he hadn't seen my design. I think it's pretty cool that we both thought of the same concept even though mine was half a year ago. I like how people are starting to branch out on homemades and they are making more unique ones.
