Re: A Tea between friends :-) How was Your Day

If Amazon delivers as promised, I will be busy outdoors tomorrow: The key switch on my electric garage door opener decided to break and the door went up & down erratically. Now I have to replace the whole thing. I thought I could fix the old one but the lousy micro switches inside just felt apart wh...

You know the rules here, Jonny: Pictures or it didn't happen ;-) Or start "Where welding is cool" on Youtube :-)

Re: Interesting Ultimaker Steel Frame Build

Any old leather jacked should do - old motorbike jackets are good as they have the necessary buttons to close up tight all the way up.

Re: Interesting Ultimaker Steel Frame Build

Based on my (limited) welding experience, I found aluminium easier to weld than steel with a TIG welder. I hope you got an automatic welding mask and not one of those simple shields or masks that usually come with the kits? If not, get one! You will have so much more fun welding with a mask that swi...

Re: Cura 2.6 Beta!

BTW: Is it tradition at Ultimaker to send out Cura release announcements after they replaced the download link but before they had time to update the link to the release notes? I have seen this a number of times now that if you follow the announcement to the download page, the download link is there...

Re: We Upgraded!

The problem with the browser zoom is that it enlarges everything. By the time the font is in a comfortable size, the rest of the page looks very awkward since the graphics get scaled too and they seem too large then.

Re: We Upgraded!

Has the font size changed or did we have a "old guy with bad eyes" setting that I had selected and that is now gone? Even at 120% magnification in the browser every font looks smaller than before the upgrade...

Re: Interesting Ultimaker Steel Frame Build

I asked Stahlwerk and they say it will draw max 16 amps but as Meduza says, that is only if you use the full 200 amps welding current.

Re: Interesting Ultimaker Steel Frame Build

The Stahlwerk welder that @Meduza mentioned is sold in Switzerland, maybe they can tell you what plug they use.

Re: Interesting Ultimaker Steel Frame Build

Since it is "only" 230V, I would think that it needs somewhere between 10-16A, maybe even less. I currently only have a very old stick welder and that one has welding currents up to 120A I think and works fine on a regular outlet with a 10A fuse.
