I've said it before, and I'll say it again. You're an amazing conceptual artist Larry. I wish I had 1/56th your talent. I've had an idea of a flat plate valve with ball bearings that nest in little slope sided cups drilled into depression on the top of the plate, used to replace the petal valve on a...
