What did you get?
Elegoo Neptune 2
Nice. Interesting that he recommended that one. Did he mention the Prusa MK3S? Over the budget you wanted to spend?
My kid had done their own research and picked the VoxelLab Aquila. When I reached out to Joel, he immediately suggested the Elegoo as an alternative. Looking at the price, the Prusa is definitely at another level. Actually, the first thing he offered was to just stop by and he'd give me one he has.
It'll be a fun gadget to get to learn. Lemme know if you have any questions. Have a few years under my belt now.
I need a lesson from the 3d printing nerd on how to get my prusa multi material unit working lol
other than that my MK3S has been great, it's also probably to big an investment for most as a first printer, if you end up not liking it its an expensive paperweight
preparation H, scubafeds, and neo citron
I just bought four of these for the cabin haha
Reminds me of the Honda Z50. I had one as a kid. Lots of memories, and scars
every once in a while princess auto has these on sale for like $600
Yes they do And they had four of them haha
son of a
not on sale here. Going to keep an eye out so Pottie and I can buy some and start a bad ass motorcycle club in the neighbourhood
We'll put those bike lanes to good use lol.
Or maybe find some bad ass trails and sweet jumps.
I immediately pictured this when you guys said that....
costco run. costco things. no idea really what i bought. $500
my snowblower is apart waiting for me to put a new friction wheel in but no free time means it’s still in pieces and has been since like September
I have to do that too. Either wheel or drive belt. Can’t tell because it’s still in my shed. Instead I just bought a new one.
In keeping with snowblower discussion, latest purchase was a couple nuts and bolts. Late last year the old man broke the bolt in the drive axle of the snowblower, so it would only spin one wheel. Geared that up today and fired the thing up to make sure there were no other issues.
I went to pull the snowblower out of the corner of the shop and there is a bolt zip tied to the handle and I have no idea why I did it but I am sure I was supposed to look at it over the summer when it was warm and order parts to fix it... I haven't looked at it yet, maybe tomorrow.
I do know it's not anything near the friction wheel, that is all good.
wireless car play module for the Touareg.
4k projector for outdoor movie night in the hot tub
Aaaand snowblower for sale lol. The thing is waaaay to big for my driveway.
Really regretting not finishing fixing mine
What are you using for a speaker? I need something that can be heard over the jets.
I went to change the oil in mine yesterday and smelled raw gas. Time to pull out the carb and clean / rebuild. I’m assuming a stuck needle valve
That's funny because we have been talking about buying a bigger one that has steering that is easier to operate
My Arien has auto-steer...its trash. I spend my entire time fighting it, especially if there is chunks of ice or unevenness. Get way more tired with my 28" ariens than my dad's 33" Sears brick
Same with my Toro. I thought oh cool that’ll make life easier, until I used it the first time. It’s a constant fight to keep it straight lol
Good to know, leaning towards the tracked Honda's

Its my Birthday this weekend. So had to get some groceries for a nice dinner with my sisters family and my mother for tonight.
Only snow blower I will ever buy. I have an hss1332 it throws snow 70 ft and I’ve yet to be able to stop it in all snow conditions. The steering is amazing and for a big machine it’s easy to maneuver about. It climbs my steps so I can use it on my back deck
Wife bought me an early Christmas present today. HSS724ATD
For the first time in two years we went cross border shopping. I picked up several pounds of Cabot cheese (under $10US for a 2lb brick of my favorite cheese of all time).
After doing a little bit of cash work on cars for years out of multiple little tool boxes, my broke ass decided to actually toss a little bit of money at an OK tool chest, Can't really beat it for the price.
But I still can find a Phillips or a 10mm
