I found somebody else to do it; thank you very much for your offer, though! :D

I'm talking about something like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jLTEBUfzFFQ In the middle of designing some christmas gifts, and don't really have the time/money to get the jigs, etc., to do the screw-making myself. (Due to family and travel, really need to have everything done by Thanksgivin...

Re: Simple Under-Cabinet Wine Rack

Here's a picture of it installed. Still needs to be finished but that's the housemate's job. (I build 'em, she paints 'em.)

Re: A suddenly requested poll — internet in the shop

The "shop" is the garage, which is directly below the room where the router/WAP is, so the signal is excellent. I prep files in the house, scp them to the netbook I use to control the gShield with UGS. When I need something simple, though, I've been known to just make it in makercam on the netbook. ...

Simple Under-Cabinet Wine Rack

Made an under-cabinet wine rack today. (Replacing the other one in the picture - we apparently have to have completely empty kitchen counters now for some reason.) First project I've done since enlarging my S2 to 500x1000mm, and it used pretty much the whole length of the thing. Cut it out of an oak...

Re: Metal-infused PLA filaments? (Recommendations needed.)

I have a tumbler, but it's a barrel-style, not a proper polishing one. (What are they called, radial?)

Thanks!

Re: Printrbot Simple Metal

I know it can be a very useful tool, but like any tool, you have to be able to use it. ;) If I could model in 3D, I'd be all over it. I'm still learning CAD. Mine works pretty good. I can't model worth a darn either from an artistic standpoint, but you can make a lot of pretty useful parts just by ...

Metal-infused PLA filaments? (Recommendations needed.)

Hi, I'd heard about these metal-infused filaments, and wanted to 3D print some custom "brass" fittings for a woodworking project (Shapeoko would be doing the inlay, of course.) Anyway, picked some Shaxon brass-infused filament , and it works fine printer-wise (better than the sample filament that wa...
