New Glass

The old glass was broken out before we got there. That made clean up a lot better. The business owners and employees can see clearly now.

Yes, it is that time of the year!60 days until Christmas and all the holiday festivities between then and now. Gay Hicks will be placing her annual pecan order November 10th. You can go by Glass & Window Warehouse 812 E. Third Street Siler City and prepay for you order. I believe the cost per bag is $8.35 same as last year.

Can I get an ouch?

This lovely little piece of plexiglass was shoved into my finger after a small crack formed.

Me smells a rat!

Well boys and girls, me wife has handled her cue very well and handed me my arse 3 times. I grew up on a Minnesota Fats pool table thanks to Mr. & MRS. V! I forgot everything I learned on that table.

I have a bit of sanding to do to make it a finished product. I am still trying to learn more about 3D printing and these projects are helping me figure out what to do.

3D Print finished

Okay, I need to remove the support material. I will reveal the final product shortly.

PLA print

12.5 hours into the print and it's 80% finished.  Stay tuned for the final product.

Dinner is served

The dish really makes cooking this recipe awesome. The caramelized veggies with the thick sauce make for a great meal.


I gave up on ABS for now. I can do better with PLA as the picture shows 65% of a print.

We're making Mediterranean chicken in a clay baking dish. We've done this before with other spice blends. Stay tuned for results.

Failure with ABS

The bond was broken with the tape and bed. I have removed the tape and enabled wave bonding. The fan is still disabled.

Ever Hopeful

I decided to celebrate with a fine cigar the possibility of a successful ABS print. I also wanted to get out of the house and enjoy the cool weather and slack off in the rain.

My first successful ABS print?

I have been studying how to make adjustments on the M3D Micro printer. I used a painting tape and turned off the fan. Now the molten ABS will have a slower cool time and not warp.
