Good news on the Hackerspace front - The Warpzone Hackerspace been promised a lathe by one the members, and a small CNC mill on loan. Now if could just find someone willing to let us borrow a laser cutter and engraver we'd be doing great.
If we ever manage to build the new space to put it all in, that is.
My 3D printed wheels were of limited success, the material warped like crazy and I ended up with wobbly wheel syndrome. Oh hum back to the Openscad drawing board.
