    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. :D

    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

    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.

    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

    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

    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

    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
