Here's a screenshot of that deal on Amazon.com (USA)
Yeah, we just don't have the buying power here.Sorry that was for US only. Wow they really have a difference in price between countries.
Well the stuff comes from China, not USA, but still. heheYeah, we just don't have the buying power here.
I guess because of the smaller population, therefore lower demand for a product, blah blah blah....I'm no economologist .
The price difference in the samples we are discussing is far more than just exchange rate.
As of now, $18.99 US is $24.00 Canadian.
So there is an extra $9.00+ fees/tariffs/etc. added (on top of the exchanged rate), to the cost for getting that item across the border.
NAFTA?? what's that?!?!?
Mike, do you recommend your new printer? I'm looking for a second printer for home and would like one with a larger build area.I'm hunting to add a new 3d printer to the family, and get these printers a sibling with a larger print area.
The Ouyang TwoTrees Bluer Plus is one that I'm looking at. It has the larger bed size of 300x300x400mm, auto leveling, filament out sensor, dual gear extruder, twin cooling fans, belt tensioners, PEI build plate, silent controller, and a 4.3" color touch screen. It has a lot of features built in, and is a brand I have not yet tried.
I hope to order a new printer this week!
A good chance to also test the Resume Print function.Once set up in there, I have a really large print planned that will take about 2 weeks for the main piece, and uses the FULL limit of the bed. (A Christmas gift for a friend)
Here's the finished HEPA air filter. The box is made from scrap moulding.I'm making a HEPA air filter for the frame shop to help control the dust. I needed to plug a hole we're the electrical cable would go through so I designed a simple hole plug in tinkercad. It's just a bunch of cylinders merged together then I cut in half. I also made some simple knobs with an off-center hole to hold the furnace filters in place.
If you need help or have questions feel free to ask right hereI haven't been doing any printing for a while.
I have struggled to get my set-up working reliably.
Then I moved the machine to a different location in the house and things got worse.
I've had more frustrations than success.
It kinda took the wind out of my sails for 3D printing.
After a few attempts of failed printing of nuts & bolts, I gave up and decided to tackle another frustration of mine that 3D printing might solve. The different dust port sizes of my power tools that doesn't seem to match any of my shopvac & dust collection hoses. Here are some 3d printed hose connection adapters I made.That's frustrating!
