No, none of those things occurred to me. Do you think they would help?

Re: thoughts on makerbot replicator plus

I cannot say "no" strongly enough. Stay away from anything Makerbot.

Consider the Prusa Mk2 or Creality Ender 3/CR10 as an entry level machine with a solid user base.

Good luck.

Re: Are 3D Printers Finally Practical?

I put an Anet A6 together, but I can't get it to work. Apparently, the free software either likes your computer, or it doesn't, and debugging the problem is the end user's job. I have no idea how to make it run. Have you read the manual? Contacted customer service? Gone online and used Google? What...

The construction guidelines document contains the exact pictures you are looking for: http://highironranch.com/bobber/BobberC ... elines.pdf
The pictures show every piece laid out with a list of what is in each picture.

Sorry: I was familiar with the terms 3/4", 1", 1-1/2" and 2-1/2" (with = 12" unsaid) =, but had not heard of 1-3/4".
It is indeed obscure.

I am not in need, but exactly what scale is "1 3/4" ? Your possible customer may be puzzled too?
1 3/4" equals 12" in real life. It is the correct scale for modeling two foot prototypes on 3 1/2" gauge. Not sure how this could be puzzling.

Does anyone recognize this engine?

So... I missed out on the actual sale, but I'm still very interested in the running gear. Does anyone recognize this? Any ideas on who the builder was or what design they used? It is a narrow gauge engine on 7 1/4". https://www.discoverlivesteam.com/discoverforsale/forsale/8_Richards/index.htm?fbcli...

Laser cut arch bar sideframes

Hi folks. I've got some "factory seconds" available now in our store. They were cut using a low power laser, and thus failed to meet our stringent production standards. With some work, they will serve you well. http://www.adirondack.x10.mx/store/index.php?route=product/product&search=steam&product_i...
