I made some actual progress on this today. The wooden framework is assembled, the power supply is mounted, the controller board is mounted, the heated bed assembly is attached to the framework, the extruder YZ assembly is dry fit, and the LED display is attached.

Still to do:

Wiring
Attach vertical movement drive threaded rods to servos
Attach glass plate to heated bed
Wiring
Figure out the software
Level and align everything
And then if YouTube videos are accurate, I'll probably end up redesigning from scratch :)

What's a good commuter hub that won't break the bank? I want to get the rear wheel for my new wheelset i started building last year going one of these days. 135QR spacing, disc, 32h to match my bike and rim :)

I found these new cycling gloves at Home Depot this evening. I hope they work great since they seem to be lightweight, ANSI green and orange, touch screen compatible, and with reflective fingertips.

I loved the hi-vis aspects of these gloves, particularly the retroreflective fingertips.

why are used corney kegs in good condition always more expensive when I have money to spend than they are when I'm broke?

Is it possible that beer is not the cure for financial hardships? Sorry, couldn't resist.

The saddle thing is interesting. Initially it looks wrong. So wrong. But then when you take into account the geometry of the bike and the rider position it makes a whole lot of sense.

Sweet ride!

Hey look, that mid-blade fork mount adapter that I ordered in April is finally here! huzzah! I sort of expected the holes to be threaded, so I'll have to see how this will really work when I go to install.

I've been homebrewing cider for a few years now, with a couple of meads and a maple wine thrown in for good measure, and I'm strongly considering adding some gear and brewing beer too.

I have the following:

-12 qt aluminum stock pot (cider doesn't have to be boiled, just pasteurized, so it's not been a big deal to do two runs to get 5 gallons)
-1 - 6.5 gallon glass carboy
-2 - 6 gallon plastic bucket fermenters
-1 - 6 gallon plastic "bottling bucket"
-kegging system with a few empty kegs
-various airlocks, cappers, corkers, etc
-propane burner (garbage find, but tested good. probably from a turkey fryer)
-hydrometer
-various cleaning implements and supplies

I'm sure I'll start with extracts (maybe even kits to start) but I'd like to be able to do all-grain brewing without re-purchasing anything. I have around $200 that I could spend without feeling guilty about it, and of course just buying a few things to start and adding as I go along is a possibility too. What things do I need? An 8 gallon pot with a ball valve and thermometer? 15 gallon? A gatorade cooler with a ball valve? giant fighting robot? Old kegs to be converted into a 15 gallon pot and mash tun? Am I even using the word mash tun right?

If you're suffering this way, and I can help, tell me.
 
If you or someone you know works in the computer security field especially (though any field really), regardless of their gender, please have them read this series of tweets. I imagine this woman is going to face some backlash from some in the community for this, but she's right, these things need to be confronted right when they happen, not months or years later in an HR office. Stand up against it and make it clear to anyone you work with that treating people like they're inferior because of their gender or race are not going to be tolerated!

It looks like this is going to be "the one",

https://specialized.com/us/en/bikes/fitness/roll-comp-x1/116180

It's in stock, it fits him just fine (he's got a longer torso), and it's got a decent enough build, even if the handlebars aren't what I'd have chosen. He thinks they're fairly comfortable, and frankly they can be replaced if it comes down to that.

Though I will have him ride one of these first just to be sure:

Great little college bar and grill. The staff is friendly and helpful, the draft beer list is among the best in town, and the food is the best on campus.
