Hi Edwin.
No idea about the answer to your question I'm afraid ( somebody else almost certainly will though), but welcome to the forum. :D

Hmmm, I never thought of that one, makes sense but I do think this is a better solution. :D

Re: Quarry Hunslet

It's been virtually a month since I posted on this, but things have actually progressed somewhat in that time and it does at least run now! I'm still not entirely happy, but hopeful that the last little hesitation will disappear with some real running in. So this is where I am at, today. The roof is...

Re: Unexpected source of cheap labour

That looks very nice Keith.
If I were you and if he is willing, I'd ask him to take a look at the others as well. He clearly enjoyed building this one for you and it will keep his mind ( and fingers ) active, which is only a good thing.

That stationary engine looks very good Drew, I may have to join the "Stationary Engine Club" myself. :lol: :lol:

I do like the sprung boxes. Have you done any load tests to see what they can cope with without bottoming?

Re: Camera Vehicle

The posted pic looks like an old colour slide from someone's '50s holiday snapshots...... Those early colour processes weren't particularly stable. By now the blue dyes may have faded, leaving a magenta cast to the image, very noticeable in a lot of old colour slides and 8 mm movie film. I've never...

Hi - this looks spot on. What’s the power source; reviews on the product page aren’t particularly helpful! No, not much info on there and the instruction leaflet isn't much more help either, although it is written in better than average quality Chinglish! :lol: I took a chance but decided that 8 qu...

SmartWater security marking.

This will only directly apply to people living in Northants ( sorry, rest of the world!). Northants police have a discounted deal on offer, to get a SmartWater security marking kit at less than half price. Apart from using for laptops, phones, etc, it can of course also be used for things like valua...

Re: Have I got a problem?

Cheers for the replies guys.

As I said, I didn't really think I had a problem because my prints are fine, but something I read did make me wonder.

Re: Have I got a problem?

Thanks Paul.
I'm not really worried, I just happened to read something recently and only when I looked closely did I see the minor flicker, which had me wondering. :roll:
It prints fine, which is all that really matters.. until it DOES go up the spout! :lol:

Re: Have I got a problem?

Rik, Sorry, I may have inadvertantly misled you. The steps in the graph are simply the 5 deg temperature drops at each stage of the temp tower print. What I was referring to is the slightly jagged 'straight line' if you look closely, as opposed to a flat straight line.

Have I got a problem?

I'm not sure if I have a problem or not, so any thoughts are welcome. This is an Octoprint screenshot of the temps of hotend and bed on my Creality CR20pro when printing a temp tower. Both lines show constant very small flickers which I don't remember seeing before but then again I haven't looked fo...

Re: Swapping printers in Octoprint

Just acquired a new Ender3V3 SE to replace my Ender3V2 and am wondering if I can just plug the new printer into the old printers raspberry pi or do I have to re program the pi to accept the new printer. Both are made by Creality so should have the same or similar firmware. The answer to my question...
