GM one (or the last one I bought a year or 2 ago) was £14. From a real dealer. The sort you walk into.

Not sure, for that money, I'd piss around (not withstanding concerns about reliability, but mine has been fine)

Careful, Dazzle will have you making a load of sextoys for him :-X
He told me that the ones you printed for him were clearly used...

Once you've had the printer for a while, you'll move on to something else.
Already there ;D

I only really bought it early last year because it was a self build one, and, like the quadcopters I bugger around with, for me the fun is in the construction (and reconstruction in the case of the drones) rather than the use.

That said, I've always got loads of things that need printing, either my pikey designs - I'm crap at 3d modelling -  or shite from Thingiverse. So much so, I considered buying another.  I see my one can be picked up for a shade over £100 from that useless online tat haven.

Admired the carpet bombing pattern left on the Shaguar by the local pterodactyl  >:(

(Yes, I did have to run that through a spell checker ;D)

I don’t know... It takes a special individual to shit themselves in bed. And show no shame for doing so :D
Clearly I work with some special individuals ;D

Thinking about it, I must also be related to some special individuals as well ;D

Ok, I have the same to mv6   :(  Eibach -30 from standard may be good idea. Thanks guys
30mm from standard might IS too low for the rear.

30mm from standard is also too low for UK roads if you have a facelift Irmscher bumper, as the underside of TBE's bumper will show  :-[

I realise I'm quite a bit behind here, but I've just discovered flexible filament this week.  I'm fascinated and impressed by it.

I'm just randomly printing any old stuff with it, shame its double the cost of traditional filaments ;D

Is that the stuff brewed in webby land?

If so, I think that's the river my piss and shit ends up in ;)

I did give some of them to TB a while back. Don't know if he used them or they went into orbit !!! ;)
They are safe and sound holding the rear mats of TBE in place :)

I must say I am offended by many of the posts in this completely off-topic thread.  What has it to do with Omegas?

Let me give you my opinions ...

Take a step back.  You are living in a tower block where ……..
<snipped for brevity>
I suspect nobody here is genuinely quite so heartless as to not feel sorry for them at the time.  However, its done, its over, things need to move on (including the media, and the idiots keep dragging these stories out).

We don't need a bloody vigil every 5 bloody minutes, and the inquiry does not need to hear all the sob stories.

Exactly the same applies to other shit, not just Grenfell. Be that the Manchester Arena shite, Hillsborough, whatever.

We have all lost close family and friends in tragic circumstances. Shit happens. Get over it. Move on.  Because a few days after the event, the only people who give 2 toots about it is the media on slow news days, and trailer trash.

You know were to find sympathy ;)

I'm saying nothing on the subject. Its entirely, completely, utterly you're own fault for being retarded and even consider using them.

BTW, just so you are aware, they are notoriously bad for given refunds. And you cop the return postage.

Sammy Sledge, then replace.

I did dishwasher my old office one, but the bloody thing still worked.  Also, afterwards, it was spottlessly clean, but most of the letters were unreadable.

That said, it was 15yrs old.

Close it down. Problem solved. It can't be fixed.

If we want an NHS, we have to create a new one, and that can't be done in parallel to the crap one we already have.

Gaydon and Coventry  :y

Ah, at the R&D end of the chain, then, I assume :) :y

Yep, connected car and infotainment hardware  :y
How are your skillz on Bosch touchscreens? ::)

I don't think I'd get better than 35mpg or so average out of XF-S (3.0d) if I owned one.
Fuel computer on this tank is suggesting over 40mpg.  That's because its mostly been used in works time ;)
