Hurrah. The 3D printer arrived today.

Many pieces arrived in a box.  No assembly instruction included but I found extensive instructions on the website at PrinterBot with videos.  Hmmm.. I found this notice in the box.

Dear valued customer,
Pb regrets to inform you we are all out of our metal spool rack for aluminum handles.  Your in luck, once our new stock comes in we will be sending out everyone their new handles.

Hopefully this is not a critical part.  Next update with completed assembly.

First house project completed

New paint and new floor completed.  Now it's managing the stuff going back into the room.  No time to start another room before heading down to southern climates.  Besides I need to get the 3D printer set up when it arrives.

This is how it looked a couple of days ago.

A Surprise Retirement Party

I was surprised with a retirement party cleverly arranged by Barb and family on January 10th .  It was supposed to be a guys night out with my sons for a movie and some beer afterward.  It was a wonderful surprise.

The kids had a great time

The New Year and the first day of my retirement began with a grand kids sleep over.

Then I was surprised with a retirement present from family.  Would you believe a 3D printer? Wow.
