Air power research

I am gratefully accepting contributions to advance pneumatic technologies. I have created my first prototype "Little" motor, and have open sourced my valve design, and urge others to help to build an air powered world.

I completed a track test of my second pneubike after running the motor though a ratcheting chainring to gain the advantage of gearing. Results are about 1.45 miles in 6 minutes with a top lap speed of around 18 mph. I plan to make the next one go further and faster by adding ambient heat exchangers, expansion chambers, and more modifications to the motor and drivetrain.

Currently I am back to working on making musical instruments so I can afford the tools I need to make tighter fitting rotary valves. I have purchased a milling machine with a lathe built it, but it did not come with any cutting bits, or the four jaw lathe chuck I need to bore out perfectly sized holes.
My second prototype air powered is completely built, but until I can make a more precise rotary valve, I don't feel like it is ready to demonstrate.
Your contributions are greatly appreciated at this time, as otherwise I will have to continue to fund my own research. Since I can barely make ends meet as an instrument maker during the winter, it may be several months before I have the tools I need.
I do enjoy making wooden flutes and drums, but would rather be working on developing a low cost air motor.

I am in the process of building the next bike. Most of the parts have been gathered, and the I have started welding the brackets to the frame.. I just need to find a few more parts, and to keep my head above water, so I can stay focused on the project.

I love the possibilities! Could this be used in a car?
