ummm... why on gods greeen earth would you take 5 pressure fittings designed, to be threaded into things and hold pressure, and glue them into the aluminum plate???  seriously great job on the project but i can see many small things like this that show you have not any experience in actual industry.

the barbed 3/4 bspt hose nipples are designed to hold over 100 bar at the thread. you have actually chosen high pressure fittings and could have used much less heavy duty ones for your application. and the thread on the end of them is designed to be threaded into things. just a tip.

Only the link for the PCB assembly. The Instructions for the body assembly seem disappear.

Yeah, the body assembly that was up was for the first generation. I'm currently overhauling all of the instructions to update them to the third generation hardware. The Hackaday instructions editor is rather buggy (making editing slow) and I'm rather time busy at the moment, but I hope to have the new instructions up soon.
