Eccentric spacers for sale

UPDATE TO ORIGINAL POST: I have yet another batch on the way. I got a price drop from my volume and I'm passing some savings along. I have some ebay ads that I've linked below, but I'll knock some money from my eBay ads for anyone that buys through the forum. I can only do this because I save on the...

Thingiverse DXF circles aren't circles

I've downloaded a few DXF files from Thingiverse and brought them into Fusion 360 for extruding and CAM work. The few I've tried have circles that are linearly interpolated versus actual circles.

Re: Australia Expansion pricing

What is eating your lunch on shipping cost is that huge wasteboard. How much is domestic shipping for it? If you coud make your own wasteboard for it, you could ship it all to me in the US, let me keep the wasteboard and forward the rails and what not to you for a much lower overall cost. We could p...

Re: Expansion packs announced

Those drag chains can get expensive quick and two per kit adds some money. Since neither of the expansion sizes they determined will work for me I guess I'm still waiting to see if the extrusion is ever going to be available on its own or if the S3 gets sold off for something else. :( If I were the...

Re: Multiple destroyed limit switches.

It did in fact turn out to be a batch of trash switches. I ripped some NO snap action switches out out an old microwave door and they now work.

Re: Shapeoko threaded table announced (again)

This seems like a cool upgrade, but I really question the need for 90 threaded holes in this work area.
