BOM, part specs, and CAD files for Archivist Quill?

Post by partytax »

Hello. I'm trying to build an Archivist Quill according to the instructions here: http://tenrec.builders/quill/guide/assembly/
The guide seems to be made for someone who bought a compiled kit of parts from tenrec.builders or another provider.

Obviously the tenrec.builders store is not active anymore, so where can I find part specifications and a BOM to build the machine from complete scratch?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Hello,

I think it will be quite difficult to find the specifications of the parts without the store.

You could try contacting the designer Jonathan duerig.

But there is no certainty that he still visits the forum, and as I believe the Quill was only ever intended to be a commercial product, he might not be easily able, or possibly willing, to provide any information. But there is no harm asking!

Just sent a private message to him through this forum. Do you know of any other contact info for him, like email, twitter, etc?

Have you scanning through this and tried the files there?

Just did. I'll probably try to build that if the Archivist Quill specs are lost to history.
