Apologies to Harold if he'd prefer we just ignore this. I try not to either throw or fan flames.
I deleted my post in favor of simply standing with the existing sentiments, and to show respect and appreciation to the owner and to the integrity of the forum members.

Re: Are 3D Printers Finally Practical?

I am not familiar with the A6 and I have not tried connecting a PC directly to my printer. I watched an RCLifeON youtube review of the A6 and the illustrated process and interface looks exactly the same as mine. Cura "slices" the STL design file and writes gcode to SD card, and then I carry the SD c...

Re: Help ! Please send boat !!

The reason is because they need to abandon the old main and route a new one in the street. Right now it runs through backyards and is old and failing. The whole system is co-op so the residents need to pay. An alternative is that the co-op sells the well to a larger water company and then we would g...

Re: Layout dye

I wonder if shaking the bottle ever so often helps the blue not separate... If it does separate, I won't buy it again, and I'll be back asking if IPA or acetone will redissolve it.

Re: Help ! Please send boat !!

Such irony that mother nature delivers. Out here it's so dry the state is making us install meters on our co-op well service, which will cost $12k per house. We get 7 years to pay that and that is quite a bargain considering what flood damage can cost. Is this just the beginning of a long haul - hop...

Re: Are 3D Printers Finally Practical?

There is no reason this should be a dead stop for you Steve. Wish we could help and a good enthusiast forum surely could help. In my case, I lowered my expectations of 3D printing so much that I'm impressed with what I'm getting. It is not impressive but functional. At the very least, you should hav...

We don't have many options for buying things where we live, so I was happy to see them open this store (in Chehalis), which is about 25 miles distant. Previously we had to travel about 50 miles.

Re: Thin Parting Blade

Indeed. The tool rocked when tightened in the holder, like it is moving away from a radiused corner. I ground it again to straighten the outside edge, remounted with an indicator, and that works better.
