3D printer and a slicing program. You can get a decent printer for under 300 and some of the good slicing programs are free downloads.

Watch a couple of you tube vids on setup, experiment a little and go for it!

THen most of the stuff I've printed have been free downloads from either Yeggie or Thingsverse.

It uses filament (click here) and just feeds off the spool. Can make 2.8 of those boxes from i spool. So the cost of a box is about 8.50. Seeing as the last Plano boxes I bought were about 8 bucks for 50 rounds I don't think that's too bad.

I did some of the last cuts on front hubs for the 5088 puller project.  Then I did some medical work.

That red stuff doesn’t make good cutting fluid. Hopefully it didn’t take much sewing...

Been busy around here last couple weeks. Planting done. Plumber came around finally and replaced a leaky hydrant plus added another cliser to the house for watering flowers and new trees. Waiting on parts for a pickup, 4 wheeler, chasing after a buddies car today. Blew the radiaitor next town over. 1486 has a bad oil leak but would like to finish spraying before i bring it home to work on. Recieved our order of flowers to add this year. Eyeing up the next landscaping project that i will start this year🙄20200512_120917.thumb.jpg.8297a2916453f01bb3330c7457d628c2.jpg

I thought if I wore tighter gloves the blood would stop, not so much.  My lady suggested a tourniquet on my neck.

I guess the tourniquet would stop the bleeding eventually but the long term effects aren't as rosy...

I'm late to this topic but I'll  thrown in for today. Started the day by welding extra cross members in a customers trailer. He has been breaking boards between the factory ones. The trailer also had some holes to patch and cracks to weld. Some spots were pretty rotten. Finished it shortly after lunch. Made a service call for a leak on a Case IH swather cutterbar. Stopped by the dealer to order parts for that. Then on to another place to install a new alternator and battery in a little Case IH 395. Came home fixed a minor issue on the wifes truck, did chores, and played with my daughter. Waiting on supper now. I had intentions of going down to the neighbors and getting my disc mower out of the shed to look it over but it's not all that pleasant outside.

Took the turbo off of my 1086.  Will get the new one on this week since I can't get in the field.

Spent the morning waiting on the wife to get herself motivated. Then planted peas, beans and corn in the garden and started a food plot for the wild critters. Again peas, corn and beans, little sugar beets too. I'll finish that plot tomorrow.
