    No doubt! This is why a good UPS is on my list to power the printers, even tho the one I got supposedly handles power glitches well, better yet to have zero power dropouts!

    LOL fun memory Glaciology research team I worked for, replaces the electrolytic caps in Tandy 100s with Tantalum caps, so the caps don't die in -40 temperatures; Then max out the RAM, and stick them in a research project in a waterproof box...

    True! 4 bit machine vs. 8 bit. My mom still has her Z80 (-C i think?) machine, twin 8" 1.2Mb floppies, beautiful wood case. Machine my brother and I made ended up running a PC board driller for his company, I sold my interest in it to him. Burned up...

    If the hot and neutral wires are wired backwards (it happens!), opening both makes the device safer. And for the manufacturer, that looks like "best practices" plus lets them say, should it go to court, that they took extra care safety wise. Plus...

    Make sure you use a good mold release o'course :) I rather like PVA but I was making canoes with that. Other good releases exist.

    Actually MEK will, among others, but getting it's sorta tough. Toluene as well. "Very regulated" is an applicable term here! Drug mfg. precursors or explosives precursors are regulated for decent reasons, I guess. Easier is to hot air gun it at...

    Oh. 300 baud means a phone modem's speed (basically 300 bits/second) for the OLD old accoustical couplers, think 1970s 'net speeds i.e. you REALLY want broadband instead! Most of my post was to tease DougGuy right back, computer related knowledge...

    You can buy cd-rom drives for pretty cheap, that just require a USB connection, to power and connect them to your computer. Linux or Win10 will have drivers for certain, should be findable for older OS's on the web, if not part of it already. ...

    It can be, only you can make things you cannot afford to buy, oh wait that's like reloading too... I've found that one of the hardest things is getting someone to print you something, seems like once they get printing they end up with the printer...

    These hold half the case so plan was to push the cut case out of the way with the next case, then trim, rinse, repeat. if you looked at the design from the end, the top half of the case is in free air so pushing on it will make the case pop out...

    Knew that, measure 4 times, cut once, then trim :) My trimmer has a motor on it, part of why I'm not too scared about a little trimming :)

    PLA+ is the first filament I bought, purple and black spools; I rather like the color Purple, but suspect I'll print the 300BO one in black, just because :) PLA+ is like PLA but copes with heat better, I will have to see if it can cope with the...

    I can tell that you're sizing the case w/o the inside neck sizer ball present there :) Do you find that more advantageous than just cutting the 223 once fired (or new) case, then sizing? Seems like more work, potentially, is why I ask. (To get the...

    I've seen people using jigs like mine, push the next case in, shoving the previous one out of the way. I could do a retainer clip like that though, its a good way to do it, that would require you to insert and pull the cases out, all on the same...

    That overstock.com desktop would work, Win10 though. If you wanted an older laptop, lots of decent ones, a Dell 600m or 700m is better than a Dell 1100, 2GB RAM limit instead of 1GB ram. ebay has them sell for $40 regularly. But a desktop...
