So, you have your own private hopper!
Hahaha. You don’t know the half of it. Everything I use on a daily basis I have a hopper for. I live to make things better =)
That’s how I got into UX design. So much software with great potential but crappy interfaces. I’d hack em for my own personal use and offer to sell the design to the owning company. It got to be fun.
I’ve been kind of bi-polar on the GF for the past month or two but comments like this definitely put me toward the high side of that curve.
For my part, questions I ask are mostly intended to prompt for more transparency and to confirm that past promises are still believed to hold true.
In that case there is a good opportunity for UX improvement with Zortrax, the Polish company that makes the 3D printer I use, specifically their proprietary slicer.
That’s what you call throwing gas on the fire!
Two requests - please address Pro and filter status and could you please revisit that list of to-be-dones from the post of things that pre-release candidates could expect and let us know how much of that is now “done”?
I can concur with @karaelena. Its going to be worth it. Had they told me it was going to be this long when I originally purchased I wouldnt have ordered, but as soon as they came out I would have wished that I did. I use it almost every day. Sometimes I spend the whole day playing on it. Still. And it will continue.
I just got paid for my first laser job. It was enough to buy a REALLY nice planer. Not 10 minutes later did someone else randomly request some laser work done. I didnt even want to offer services until I got my release version, but its just happening. Thats not including all of my cosplay friends. Its insane and so much fun.
You’ve no idea how much weight those endorsements carry with me, and probably quite a few others as well. Thanks!
Man… I’ve been saving the last 4 months to get a planer. Realistically I could by now but I like to keep my monthly tool budget under the, " You spent how much!?" level. What are you going to get?
Oh I know, this was something I was not going to be buying for a long time. I did some work for a friend that works at a hardware store, and as a trade he got one for me. Its going to make my trips to the saw mill even more exciting. It gets here wednesday. Im beside myself.
Now you need a drum sander. Bwahahahahaha!!!
I vaguely remember that, too…but for the life of me…?
We misread it, misinterpreted, a combination. It’s that problem with communication thing.
you shoosh your mouth!
Sigh, saving for one. End grain cutting boards are a b… To flatten without one. I’m in the school of “no end grain through the planer”. Also need a better dust collector.
I’ve been using a jig for the router to flatten my end grains.
@takitus which planer you get? I cheapest out and got an old delta 12" years ago(Kijiji 125$!!!). And it still works great. But I know I need something wider, possibly helical blades.
Ordered a Dewalt 735x. I’m hoping it’ll work well. I’ve seen a couple reviews saying the blades wear out quickly, but it comes with an extra set, so I’m ok with that.
I’ve got one of those. It is a nice tool. Works great. I ran quite a lot wood through it with out having to change the blade that often. Even if you do the blades are easy to change. Also, I found that with taking a very thin final pass makes for a very smooth surface. Let me know of you have any questions about it, I’ll help you any way I can. Enjoy!
There’s a very good chance I’ll take you up on that offer! Thanks!
My planer is my favorite tool (that does not come with a preinstalled laser). There’s something about placing a piece of ugly tried up tree corpse, watching it pass through a magical motorized treecorpsemover without touching it, and come out looking beautiful and strong and not at all like a tree corpse on the other side.
I absolutely can’t wait to do this. I knew I had to get one once I saw all the nice pieces I was passing up because they were rough hewn. Now I won’t have to. Many more sawmill trips imminent!
