ptfe issues

Well fun times I mustsay, my order part decided to fail so I can't use my makerbot at the. moment. I have a rod of ptfe but no time to make it. That's war u get for working lol. Any ways, I will make one soon so I cam start to print again

However one thing i have been looking at id converting makerbot into a PCB mill. The idea being I can take out the plastruder and add on the dremil fitting and cut circuit boards. This has led me to think about mak8nguyen a laser cuttablw cnc using the same electronics from makerbot possibly letting makerbot make and sell for a small return for me. We shall see. So far I have mote stepper nema17 and a larger nema 23 and rods from printers with a polystyrene mock up. So far looks like I can have a board build base of about 250 x 300. Fab! Pics tp come. I'm currently updating web site whilst waiting for my friend at Plymouth train station
