  • Tool Gloat No.1

    I recently had to relocate at work and space was limited in the new workshop (although daylight is a welcome new experience).

    One of the things there wasn't room for was our PCB drilling machine. I wrote the PIC C code and the VB6 to run it (I hate programming) and it was a constant work in progress. Sending files out for manufacture is now a lot faster and cheaper, so the decision was made to scrap the machine. I wasn't going to let that happen, so it went into the back of the Mondeo and round to a mate's house.

      I think the phrase is "You suckest maximus" USA meaning You suck Big-BigTime!

          I didn't exactly 'find' it, since it was in my (day job) workshop all along!

          I might just grab a RepRap extruder head off ebay to throw on it. I'd need a heated bed too of course.
