Picked up a Tefal rice cooker when living in Australia. They’re superb, reliable and
make great cakes
Highly recommend buying one 🙂
Our latching mechanism broke recently, requiring us to jam some weights on top to ensure the lovely cooked rice goodness continued……….
I Gone Dun Fixed it!
I’m getting a little better at Fusion360 now and my work with the C64Mini keyboard taught me enough about surface modelling to knock up this thingy 🙂
The old one’s at the top………the sticky outy bit snapped.
Now, another rabbit hole though……PLA is quite tough
….Until it’s warmed up.
….Rice cookers get a little warm…
It lasted a couple of weeks at least…
icked up a roll of ABS, first time I’ll be using it, so wish me luck!. Also i’ll redesign those curves just a little better 🙂
Back a few years ago (wow, it was that long!) I backed the
Problem is, those lovely coloured bars over on the right
They’re not LED’s………….
Well, I’m gonna try to fix it……

Haven’t even fully assembled the thing yet and I discover there are many upgrades
many very cheap!, A few expensive, many quick, a few slower…..
I do however own a few
Ikea Lack Tables
and being a little dissapointed that my D9 was just too big to fit inside, I’m probbaly going to knock up a small stacker with my 3020 and ender 3! ………..when i’ll actually use all this crap for making stuff for the kids to play with, who knows!, still, the ‘possibilities’ are keeping me sane right now!

What’s more sensible than spending $9USD on a basic, possibly non working chinese no-name bearing block?
……..Spending hours and a few quid trying to do ’em up!
Parts I’ll need…
3/32 Drill Bit (or possibly 2.4mm if it needs some play) …………..[edit, turns out a 2.4mm is too small! Looks like 2.5 is the go]
3/32 Ball bearings (bound to loose a few)
Something to drill with
something to clamp down the carriage without damaging it
After a few minutes with the calipers and Tinkercad, I give you……….

After the old soap and water life’s lesson and getting some fantastic print bed adhesion, the printer ‘developed’ * another problem……………
*by developed, I mean,
‘I’m an idiot’…..Probably…………..[just scroll to that bit below to avoid a few paragraphs of waffle

Use SOAP AND WATER………
I’ve a few successful prints under my belt now…..Pics another time……..
For the past few days though, this has been happening………Zero adhesion 😦

Lots of basic printing suggested that the front to back measurement was slightly off…so, finally I’ve decided to calibrate the printer….
By, printing a calibration cube! I’ll do it a little differently and record just a bit more information…I’ll measure 3 points for each axis, giving 9 points for the cube….

DWIN.COM.CN Link to Screens
Hmm, Looking at DWIN.COM.CN…There’s quite a few LCD’s that may fit the bill- quickly copy / pasted the parts into Excel – All are 2Gig memory and 4.3″ screens

So, having discovered that there’s a whole load of 3D printers out there,I’ve no idea what I want, how much to spend and that I’ve still got £200 burning a hole in my pocket after a week,
I figured I’d up the budget to £400

For some time now, I’ve been thinking about buying a 3D printer…….Just never really actually pulled the trigger
The lead up to the purchase………..
