Re: Cubes

If I can get at least 10 cubes of either size then I will be able to do them at £10 each or £15 for one of each size. I can get about 4 cubes out of each sheet so I'll do some extra to round it up. If anybody who wants one can keep posting I will sort it out in 2 weeks time and have them ready for t...

Re: Cubes

If I can have a finalised number needed I can make up a load on my next batch of machining. My one is laser cut from clear acrylic and slots together. £10 a cube should easily cover it. Can also do some 3" ones without a a problem too. http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b330/joshiv/2012-08-21165557.j...

Re: Pop!

So they worked... to an extent. Need a few more hours to dry fully, I had them over a hot water bath to try and allow all the bubbles in the solution to surface and escape through the event, there were a few more bubbles than I would have liked, but they're not a big issue. I'll print some more hubs...

Re: Pop!

I'm currently almost literally watching paint dry... I've turned some aluminum molds to make up wheels. inside are 3D printed hubs surrounded by some slow setting shore 14a silicone rubber, in a repulsive mint green. we'll see how they turn out in 48 hours... http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b330/j...

Re: Pop!

I'm starting to get through all the parts, a few more fixings and caps to finish and some holes to bore in the tank for a fill valve. I've gone with a fixed buffer as the dual moving buffer tanks seemed a bit fragile. I've made up some molds to try and mold some wheels from silicone. Not a lot else....

Re: AWS 38 - Brighton 7th July

I'm afraid I won't be able to make this one either, far too much work has got in the way. Hopefully I will get something finished for the next one.
