Sorry I missed your question :) I couldn't get retraction working properly with the stock head while printing with PLA.

Nice print! Looks like those joints are working out. I think your hot end also as a lot to do with the quality of the prints you are getting. Can you post a link to that last file you printed? I would like to give that a shot soon. Also I am assuming you are using KISS? Are the following features o...

The print results look amazing!


No I used 3mm screws in the existing holes. I used the outside holes rather then the inside ones.

Re: Mhackney's Rostock Max

Most stainless is not magnetic so these are steel. I will spot them and drill. I can do this on either the lathe (with a 5C chuck) or mill (also a 5C chuck).
