Plastic Widgets, when a piece of plastic makes all the difference, when the only thing standing between having a functional prototype is a small custom plastic widget...
and when your done printing, the fun continues with assembly. A number of machine axis are coming together, but who knows what the final config will look like. Yesterday I counted 5, today another 5. (and a few more in  the next days)

Waiting for a few alternate 12mm block bearings for another printer, I couldnt help noticing the basis of another 3D Printer staring at me from the Box of MechaBits, Just one Printed Part on the X axis, with another for the Carriage to be done. So now the 12mm Rods I was going to use for another Printer, are now in use here, so need to order more to continue with other idea...but this idea actually finishes off the other idea :) I can use the Z Rods and table clamps for either project...and now I've found a neat solution to drive Z, I can use that idea on the other project also.

The Effects of Brexit can be felt even before we leave, 10% hike straight off the bat on most things, Who are these idiots that compile RPI & CPI Stats, obviously they LIE. Grrr Filament Doubled in Price, if people only realized Stop Buying things & watch the Price Fall, Take your Money out of the Banks, and watch the Interest Rates Rise to Lure you Back! Take Control Build your Own Stuff!

After testing some cheap Black PLA, I think it might be time to find something better, So the search is on for some nice Matte Black Material. Or spend time on some finishing work.
