    I got a craving for one last Xmas, the cheap ones are just that, cheap, you find then you need a heated bedplate, so it's £700 now, then one that does both kinds of plastic, and before you know it it's a couple of grand.

    Rather spend it on a good CNC milling machine as I fancy building live steam railway locomotives again......

    3d printers

    Hi folks,
    I've been tempted to dabble in 3d printing, and would like to buy a cheapish printer for 'playing with'.

    Does anyone have experience of the sort of £300-£400 printers available on e-bay?

    I don't mind a bit of tweaking or mechanical adjustment.
    RS

Working...
