Murphy77 I will go through your recommendations one by one:
Fevered Visions is a great card, but it is a real double-edged sword in the current aggressive meta. Most decks are quick enough to get down below 4 cards pretty easily, so all you're doing is giving them more gas. I'd rather stick with draw 3 for (usually) 2 mana.
Ornithopter just flat out doesn't work with this deck. The reason I use Cogworker's Puzzleknot and Servo Schematic is because they are artifacts that make more artifacts upon ETB. For example, let's say I have a Pan, a Gremlins and a Fireweaver in play. If I cast a HornyFlopter it deals two damage from the Fireweaver and pumps the Gremlin +4/+0. If I cast a Puzzleknot it would deal 6 damage (2 for itself, 2 for the servo, and 2 off the additional servo from the Pan) and pump the the Gremlin +12/+0, which unblocked would be lethal in one play. So, huge difference.
Pia's Revolution and Perpetual Timepiece are great if you have artifacts that end up in the graveyard a bunch, but that's not the case for this deck. Half my artifacts are tokens, the other half usually just sit there on the battlefield unless they get hit by Abrade, so those two wouldn't do much work and would just clog up an already complicated deck. Now I have seen some really cool builds using those two with Ravenous Intruder and Scrap Trawler along with a bunch of Implements. But that's a completely different deck idea.
Thanks for the feedback!

Have you considered Fevered Visions in place of Reverse Engineer? I like to think that free summoning of Ornithopter does more later in the game than Cogworker's Puzzleknot or Servo Schematic, which are better early-game cards. The focus must always be to get infinite thopters - when Reckless Fireweaver will win the game, or Salivating Gremlins will bulldoze any resistance. To this end, I would consider adding in at least 2 Pia's Revolution to keep artifacts coming back to your hand, or something like Perpetual Timepiece to get them back into your library.

Brawlor5472 the Servo Schematic can be sacrificed itself to Syndicate Trafficker and the servos to Yehenni, Undying Partisan or the aforementioned trafficker. I'm playing that many islands because my sideboard is heavily blue. I wouldn't want to sideboard in and not be able to play the cards i just sideboarded in. Plus by playing only three islands it would dramatically reduce my chance to get any at all, so i would sit there with the Contraband Kingpin in my hand.

I just added 3 Embraal Gear-Smasher to my deck. I run no rares in my deck and when it takes off it works amazing. Has been a fun deck to play around with and tweak. I run 4 Reckless Fireweaver just for the sheer joy of getting more than one out. Two out on the field with Efficient Construction and Embraal Gear-Smasher is brutal when you drop in a Servo Schematic or Fireforger's Puzzleknot Do the math on that. I also took out my Whirlermaker and added more Woodweaver's Puzzleknot just to get the life gain and three more energy counters for the Whirler Virtuoso So much you can do with this deck and it is cheap and effective. Good luck.

Panharmonicon would double the servo's created from either of those spells and also double the damage triggers from the Fireweaver as well. If you put that on top of Pia's Revolution, it would be pretty crazy.
You could also consider using no cost artifacts, like Ornithopter or Bone Saw or Cathar's Shield, that way you can keep slamming them on the board, dealing damage with the Fireweaver until your opponent has enough and chooses to pay the 3 life to send it to the graveyard.
Ohhh and Ravenous Intruder could even set that up for an infinite loop. Well, like I said, infinite until they pay the 3 life to kill it.
Cool stuff though, hope my suggestions help!

In another scenario, having Trawler in the field and then sending either Key or Schematic to the graveyard will bring back Bomat Courier or Implement of Combustion, etc. This cycle continue until ornithopter. This meta has a lot of artifact hate so that's why Trawler is great at bringing them back without having the opponent's interference like Pia's Revolution.

Thanks for the tips! I think your Wrangle, Invigorated Rampage, and Kari Zev's Expertise spells are great considering how much we just want to swing in with the Ravenous Intruder without fear of being blocked. Ichor Wellspring definitely needs to replace my Prism since I don't need mana fixing. I really like Treasure Keeper's ability in this deck and I don't know if you see a use for him in yours since he is standard legal, but I just picture him casting Expertise which then lets you cast something else. Or if he casts Scrap Trawler and then you combo off another artifact like Servo Schematic it is a beautiful thing.
Thanks for your comment on your deck feed. It's true that there is nothing new under the sun and we can't know everything that's already out there. I'm glad I ran into you on this site so that my gremlins can thrive and be a little more obnoxious :)
