    When I was travelling through the US a long time ago I once struck up a conversaion with one of the locals. He asked me if metric was really better. I answered that it was but the change over was painful. In retrospect I think personally I never completely changed over. Instead I'm using both...

    I imagine most of us are used to making the conversions between systems because even though Canada and most of the rest of the world is officially metric our big elephant next door neighbor to the south continues with imperial and doesn't give a crap what everyone else does. Maybe if the USA...

    3D printer at P.A.

    It says on their website the free version can be renewed after 3 years. I would read that to mean it expires in 3 years and no one knows what the story will be in 3 years time. Still if they are true to their word and it's free for 3 years that might be enough to get me in.

    3D printer at P.A.

    How long will that last? My understanding was they were planning to eliminate the free option soon?

    3D printer at P.A.

    I was using 123D which could tell you how long ago that was! It was a steep learning curve for sure but lots of online tutorials were a great help. The computer I have 123D on has now crashed and don't know if can retrieve it. At least it was free!

    3D printer at P.A.

    Thats the one I almost got about a year ago! I always seem to be on the verge of making the plunge but then end up spending my money on something else. Too many competing wants!

    3D printer at P.A.

    Thats funny because you've now got me seriously considering getting one! I wouldn't get the PA Dremel though. I want something that can do more than just PLA plastic. For me its a toss up right now between the Prusa i3 MK3S+ and the Biqu B1. I'm leaning towards the Biqu B1 right now mostly...

    Bridgeport gang mill, $1,000, Cambridge, ON

    I didn't get a reply from the seller after messaging last night. I assume that means someone else beat me to it.

    3D printer at P.A.

    Like many rapidly changing technologies my impression is that the latest and greatest models will cost an arm and a leg. On the other hand the older models that are about to be discontinued are often offered at deep discounts. I'm guessing the Princess auto model is in the latter category. If...

    3D printer at P.A.

    Its not clear to me exactly which model of Dremel 3D printer PA is selling. It doesn't look like the 3D45 which gets high ratings and PA doesn't say anything about capability with plastics other than PLA which would be critical in my own book.

    3D printer at P.A.

    I think 3D printers can be an excellent workshop tool although I suspect you could get better bang for your buck somewhere else. I think this market/technology changes rapidly and its been a long time since I last researched a best purchase option. I think the Prusa printers have an excellent...

    Thinking About Acquiring a Mill

    I've been following this thread with great interest because I am at a similar point as @Tecnico when it comes to looking for a mill. Significant difference may be that I live in Ontario where deals are relatively numerous and I have the experience of buying so far 3 old lathes. Still the whole...

    Surface Grinder- Stanko $3,750 Milton On.

    Looks like a beautiful machine and within a reasonable distance. Unfortunately too steep for my pocket book at this time.
