    The extended mag is nice, but the one John In AR found is undoubtedly more expensive. Wowzers!

    That's pretty cool. One of my sons uses his 3D printer for all kinds of small functional stuff. He made brackets specific to wall-hang his VR headset, made me a couple magazine loaders, and he even made himself & his wife fitted facemask bodies that hold high-MERV filter elements when the covid stuff started up. Very handy for a lot of things.

    (But so would the woman in the pic, for that matter...)

    Always been intrigued by the 3D printers. How much are they? Are they difficult to learn to use?

    Personally, never used one; just know what my sons say about them. My son is on his second one, an Ender-3 Pro and loves the stupid thing much better than his first one. Can print basically anything that will fit in an 8.5"x8.5"x10" space, and if you need something bigger, you can print it in sections to be joined. He did that for a benchloader that he printed for me. It's around two feed long, and he simply had the printer include dovetails for the sections to mate up, and it did very well:
    He also printed the small LULA style loader sitting on top of it. That impressed me a bunch, since it has moving parts.

    As far as cost, he paid around $300 I think, but when I just looked at their site, they're currently on sale for $209. There may be something better for the same money; I'm not up on them at all, just passing along what little info I have on them.

    About all I know about them is that there are all kinds of options from cheap to expensive, and even the filament has lots of options. The last one he told me about was (iirc) actual carbon fiber material, or something close to it. It all looks like weedeater line to me.

    If I had a 3D printer and knew how to use it, I’d be racking my brain trying to come up with an idea for some kind of useful product that would generate a big demand and try to patent & sell it. That would be a good thing to generate a little extra retirement income when the time comes.

  16. If you can use a windows PC or Mac OS it is not a great problem
    to use a 3D printer ......

    That's what my son says. I think he may overestimate me.

    Sounds promising even for a technologically challenged person like myself since one of my sons is really savvy with that kind of stuff; he could help me out.
  20. This one turned out very nice !!!!
