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

Joy, I used a hot air gun with variable temperature to clear my 0.1mm Nozzle with the help or a 0.1mm drill, and then an out of machine atomic pull.

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

Hi all, we (Susie and me) have had a bit of a traumatic week this past week.
Unfortunately on Monday mid-day Sues father had a massive stroke from which the doctors said there was no possible recovery and he passed away on Wednesday morning.
