Good Deals, and a little bit of Vanity
My RP parts for Mendel over at sellsimp.ly finally have bidders, they are at $155 now. I will be sending the parts out Tuesday the 6th, no matter what they are going for.
The Winston Salem Journal came over and did an article on me. They interviewed Bre Petis Also! It was fun and 3-4 locals have contacted me about the printer, hoping this helps out the Hacker Space project.
Nop Head pointed out the benefits of PET tape for printing with ABS, well Deal Extreme has 24mm rolls of it with free shipping here for $4.99 Deal Extreme PET Tape.
Price war on ABS. buy3dink.com has some REALLY cheap ABS ($30 a 5lb roll). They even carry HDPE for the old school among us for $30 also.
Digi Key has a $8 blower fan that I have fell in love with. 12V 2.28 Watt (190ma), and it pushes 8.5cfm at 41db. Not bad at all. It's 75x75x25mm, but the air port is only 25x25.
That's all the good deals for now. Putting together my Makergear High Output build plate, should have it done next week, will post a video... it looks awesome. Also I installed the Maker bot worm gear. Best $10 I have ever spent on my Makerbot.
