IT'S ALIVE! at least one thing is
I don't regularly post, and I don't think anyone reads this its more of a log for myself, but just because I can I will post something. My gas forge for smithing is now in working order, and I have tried working metal heated in it once so far and it worked great. Sadly the weather has been working against me and It has been raining going on a second day, meaning I can't be outside forging as I have no overhead protection from the elements in my area. Hopefully I'll be able to get some more work time in on it soon. Also the reprap version Mendel is nearly completed mechanically as I have finished the heater core and other parts necessary for a hot end of my extruder. I need to wire up everything, and i'm sure that'll take some time to make and run all the cables as well. Then I need to set up at least one of my computers with the host software to install the firmware onto the motherboard of the reprap, and send some test commands to make sure everything is moving properly.
