3d printer project is underway and making progress!
Look at those glorious metric socket screws. Look. at. them.
Two cases, oiled can, big ruler, 4 valve manifold set, large driver motor, 4 sets of worm gears w pinions, an extra large turbo torch tip, and a full x axis driver (not in pic)… For 65$.
Its very hard to beat hackerspace garage sales.
Full 3d printer electronics showed up. It’s amazing what you can get for only $170 on ebay. Full ramps board, 5 drivers, LCD and SD card setup, even an SD card, 3 end stops, 3 homing stops, 3 GT2 pulleys, all the wiring, AND a hot plate (didn’t even realize it was coming with a hot plate actually).
If you haven’t seen this yet, you should watch it. If you have seen it you should watch it again.

I suppose these would be fun to short… I’ve only got a few boxes of each.
G540 and some 380oz steppers from CNC Parts, they do a great job in pre-cabling EVERYTHING. Plug. Play. Now to play.

This ones on ebay. Figure I’ll grab it to add to the showcase or gift to a buddy.
