At age 5 his Father died.

At age 16 he quit school.

At age 17 he had already lost four jobs.

At age 18 he got married.

Between ages 18 and 22, he was a railroad conductor and failed.

He joined the army and washed out there.

He applied for law school he was rejected.

He became an insurance sales man and failed again.

At age 19 he became a father.

At age 20 his wife left him and took their baby daughter.

He became a cook and dishwasher in a small cafe.

He failed in an attempt to kidnap his own daughter, and eventually he convinced his wife to return home.

At age 65 he retired.

On the 1st day of retirement he received a cheque from the Government for $105.

He felt that the Government was saying that he couldn’t provide for himself.

He decided to commit suicide, it wasn’t worth living anymore; he had failed so much.

He sat under a tree writing his will, but instead, he wrote what he would have accomplished with his life. He realised there was much more that he hadn’t done. There was one thing he could do better than anyone he knew. And that was how to cook.

So he borrowed $87 against his cheque and bought and fried up some chicken using his recipe, and went door to door to sell them to his neighbours in Kentucky.

Remember at age 65 he was ready to commit suicide.

But at age 88 Colonel Sanders, founder of Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) Empire was a billionaire.

Moral of the story: Attitude. It's never too late to start all over.

MOST IMPORTANLY, IT'S ALL ABOUT YOUR ATTITUDE. NEVER GIVE UP NO MATTER HOW HARD IT GETS.

You have what it takes to be successful. Go for it and make a difference.

His first 3D printer build, and Day 1 was a resounding success!  Kudos to +Alex Lee on a great design, from the pre-cut and pre-tapped extrusions to the TNuts that can be installed from the surface, my 10 year old had a great time and did all the work save it an extra set of hands to put the gantry on.  We're looking forward to see the "bumble bee" spartan take flight!

Looking great +Anthony Webb​. Start the makers young :)

Can't wait to see the progress during the build.

Scientifically Speaking, Baseball shouldn't exist.
The margin of error for a batter to be early or late is .007 Seconds. Which is about 2/5 of the duration that a single frame is displayed on a television broadcast.

And bumble bees can't fly either. So what?
Baseball is the only sport that is so boring they have to endlessly quote statistics to make it seem less boring. It doesn't help.

Cnc geeks, put your thinking caps on... Check out this article by Rob about why TinyG is special.

And why it's a big deal that we not only use the G2 in our CNCs, but why we are excited that we partnered with them to bring this tech to 3D printers. Stay tuned, it's about to very interesting ;)

I'm hoping to get some feedback from the 3D printing buffs out there who have experience with what are the best options for nema17 steppers.

So many options in the marketplace, prices are all over the place, and I am sure quality is as well. What are your absolute favorites?

The use case is not 3D printing, but for a PNP project that I built. Today it uses the nema17's I stole from my shapeoko (Smart Automation SM42HT47-1684B) which seem to work pretty well. https://hackaday.io/project/9319-diy-pick-and-place
We're building a PNP machine. We need one, but as most startups who are bootstrapping and who have seasoned engineers up to the task, we want something that is better/faster/cheaper. We've tried some of the DIY options for PNP out there, and at the end of the day it became very apparent that if we wanted something that checked our boxes we would need to build it ourselves. Game on.

+Jerry Rodberg I too was skeptical, and we did see missing steps with cheap bearings, but our current setup has been 100% accurate in the many boards we have placed so far.  Time will tell how reliable it is, but so far it has been very good.  We've got some IGUS drylin bearings that seem to have some slop, we're not even going to attempt this kind of a setup for those, but instead will do the 2:1 thing and maybe look at a more cantilevered design.

Taking the phrase "Love is a battlefield" to a whole new level.
Hakas are mostly seen nowadays in rugby matches. Before, though, they were used on the battlefield to intimidate enemies. In this video, you’ll see both the terrifying side of the Haka and it…
