    Big Tom replied to a thread USPS slow shipping in Our Town
    I just played the "claim game" with them. After 20 days, two "2-Day Priority Mail" packages did not make it and I filed claims for both. The claims stayed untouched for 10 days, then they were "in review" for another five and at that time the...

    I feel bad for our mail woman... She is working overtime like crazy, normally our delivery time was around 3-4 pm, now she sometimes comes at 8pm or later and said they don't get enough people and the volume is just overwhelming. It's a cheap,...

    Big Tom replied to a thread Polymer Receivers in Our Town
    You can get 3D printer designs that enforce the weak areas like the buffer tube attachment and upper pin holder areas. PLA is just fine for it (and yes, I have been 3D printing things for 5+ years now and that included a few lowers). I agree with...

    Check out fleebay. I have been using the "Anycubic" brand printers for 4 years now and they are inexpensive and produce decent results. (there is one on sale for $109 incl. shipping at the moment). For filament, I suggest using PLA, which is easy to...

    Technically, you don't have to solder the side of the little distribution board. You can take the new wire and screw it into the terminal together with the cable (black terminal, negative) coming from battery. The other ends, from the Arduino and...

    Let me see if I can get my hands on one of these presses. If so, designing a catcher should be no problem.

    Big Tom replied to a thread Polymer Receivers in Our Town
    I would not even want to get into that - they really aren't as sturdy as the ones made out of enhanced injection molded plastics - and if anybody really wants to get into it, a printer is below $200, plastic is below $20 for a 2 lbs roll (probably...

    Big Tom replied to a thread Polymer Receivers in Our Town
    I 3D printed a few to play with it - weakest link, as described here already, is the buffer tube attachment (the ones out of plastic that you buy most likely have some metal there to make it more sturdy. Here's a pic of a 3D printed one, cost of...
