Have you built this yet?

I have built one about 20 years ago. (actually 3 or 4 prototypes that I scavanged for other projects and one that remains in use).
shows it in spring of last year.
I do not know if anyone else has built one. I get a disproportianate amount of website traffic from India and the Philipines so I guess there are some there. It is also on the internet glossary of pumps.
Hopefully there are some of them working away round the world.

Neat, thanks for sharing it.
