It is the correct one I think...
@Redbrickman, yes that's the one, my mistake, :hu (Dozy old git) and its printing right now, so thanks guys for your persistence, I need all the help I can get..

@The Hat forget that and get building!
Nope I won’t be flying on two wheels, walking is my mode of transport and that’s fast enough, besides Ted drags me along at his pace..

But this guy, :bow Alexandre Chappel has become a big fan of mine,because he has other better machines in his workshop and yet he chooses to play around and come up with all sorts of new gadgets that he wouldn’t have if he didn’t have his 3D printer..:love

In the last 12 months we’ve had few to none here willing to entertain the taught of getting a new 3D printer, they don’t know what there’re missing, this is coming from a confirmed 3D Printaholic…(Very Bios opion):hugs

If you won't get one of these (the two-wheeled Segway, you cheeky monkey)



Then how about one of these one-wheeled wonders:



This could be you and Mrs. The Hat. :thumbsup

I love the Segways, I had a whole day in a country park on one and it was the best fun I'v ever had on two wheels. If you have not tried one then go for it, it's just great fun.

I can’t see Mrs The Hat getting me one for Christmas…:smack
You won't need a Segway then.
Gravity won’t be an issue.. :woot

Well I printed the gadget out and straight away I could see I wasn’t going to be disappointed, it worked as expected, and I already have a woodworking project in mind for it…

Most start out with toys from thingiverse.com but before long begin making every day practical things that they designed themselves.. You don’t have to be a designer to make things, just a dreamer..:caf

Here's a new project for you to keep you out of mischief
@The Hat - Not there yet but one step closer.
I’m not prepared to give up my wicked ways just yet, to join 3D Printaholics anonymous, I’ll leave all that stuff to art lovers and @Redbrickman, he likes to make 3D machines, I like to run them down..
I wonder if I’ll ever get @stratman to think in 3D format..:idunno
