  • pneumatic motor.

    Hi, im planing on building a small pneumatic piston motor for a water mixer, and was considering making it out of UHMW, mainly for some fun and experiance with the material.

    And I was wondering just how likey is a UHMW piston to surive a long time unlubed in a UHMW cylinder if speeds are not excessive?
    Or maybe I should do something like a stainless steel or aluminum block and a UHMW piston that gets replaced?

    How big a piston are we talking?

    If it were me I would make a UHMW block and use Stainless sleeves for the cylinders.

    I built a piston pump with a 2" piston diameter,used 2-1/8" OD stainless tube and honed it with a bottle brush hone.

    There is also availble chromed ID aluminum tubing to be had.
    I just need one more tool,just one!
