January 2023

Sorry for the late January boxes - wasn't counting on USPS losing some of the filament and I shouldn't have waited to see if they'd find it >.<

So far this month is looking good, as always I'm aiming for the last Tuesday of the month. Not by the 25th each month since I'm splitting time between both boxes. The new sample machine is currently in the Atlantic, https://www.vesselfinder.com/vessels/details/9726671 so once that arrives and I get it set up I'll be able to move back to by the 25th since I'll be able to get samples done more quickly.

Also, just a reminder - if anyone is still on Box Mountain or CrateJoy, though you don't HAVE to, it'd be appreciated if you transfer your subscription over to this site. If by chance you have a lower price from older Maker Box subscriptions before price changes, I will be more than happy to honor that price. Shoot me a screenshot of your Box Mountain invoice and I'll send you a coupon to match the price.

Thank you!

Dual Tool Socket/Driver Ratchet

I always like trying out different tools that can be used to remove nozzles. This tool has a 1/4" drive square on one side (which goes great with the Vanadium sockets in a previous UFO) AND I don't know what the connector type is called on the other side lol, but fits driver bits which I think is great if you have metric drivers like I do. Both sides are reversible ratchets.

Line Following Robot

I've been wanting to do a line following kit for a while, and saw this pre-made kit available which helped from having to source all of the individual parts lol. Down side is that no 3D printing is required really, but I did get a kit out to Fernando last minute for him to design a body, check back for when it's available =)

UFO Kit Contains:

  • 1 x Line Robot Kit
  • 1 x Instructional
