Those books are a great find. 

I'm afraid print material looks to have a bleak future, so grab any book you can find that strikes your fancy.  Especial vintage books.

Our Shop / Re: new workshop - insulation advice needed
« Last post by picclock on Today at 05:43:09 AM »
@vintageandclassicrepairs
The exterior walls are solid concrete blocks - no cavities. My current thinking is 12mm osb with 30 or 40mm celotex on 50mm battens which will leave a small air gap behind, supposedly for a vapor barrier - which I don't understand. :scratch:

Not sure what to do about the floor which is a concrete slab. Because the building has been extended the slab has been cast in two parts. Looking at the planning permission info this was done in around 1986, so I,m not sure if planning regs. stipulated foam under the concrete back then for insulation. On the plus side there appears to be no damp at all so it likely works however it was done. Initial thoughts are to just paint the floor with garage floor paint then cover with lino - as I currently have. Any other ideas most welcome.

Best Regards

Not really Dave when you take into account the falling head when the power goes off.   :palm:

I looked at this machine, liked the use of linear rail, had reservations about the use of belt on the Z over a leadscrew.  However, the counterbalance spring is a good solution.  Heated bed, depends what you intend to print with.  I wouldn't go too exotic due to the use of printed parts.  Build a cabinet for it to cut down dust and draughts.  In winter my PLA printers have the cabinets warmed to 20 ℃ with a hair drier, after that the printing process is enough to keep them around that temperature for consistent prints.

The Cetus is on my wish list, but only when they have a UK supplier.  Look forward to Andrews mangling of it  :poke:

The Cetus is made by Tiertime, the same company that do the UP printers and a range of professional FDM machines.  They have a lot of experience with printers.  Another option for the counterbalance would be a sash window style fix, counterweight and pulleys 3D printed of course.

That's one giant leap of engineering from 60lb blacksmith hammer to 3D printer :hammer: :smart:

Very nice.

beware of books, they reproduce like -well- rabits

My all books don't even fit anymore on the book self. There is a box 12 volume enegineering book on the floor. I may need to get rid of some prose.
