    Thats about average - better a bit under than over :-)

    Let us know how the Ormerod goes - it looks like it addresses all the niggles I've had with mine.

    Did you get the ormerod and was it any good?

    I could be tempted when they are back in stock.

    Well, not only have we bought one, I have also sourced and supplied a major upgrade to it that totally transforms it. :)

    it's a fantastic little machine and has printed several very useful parts so far.

    get on the reprappro forum and have a look-see.

    Ooooh you tease!

    I already watched a bunch of videos and read some of the forums. I think I am sold, RS have them in stock too! That checkout button on the basket is looking tempting!

    Whats the major upgrade, could it be a modulated IR sensor + fan control + illumination board?

    I have that one too, not fitted yet.

    my upgrade is an aluminium bed support plate, the kit comes with an mdf support but it shifts and twists all the time, a need was spotted and I stepped in, had some cut and am now supplying builders with the upgrade, it really does transform the ormerod.

    I haven't clicked the checkout button yet, but I am seriously considering it.

    Do you have any aluminium beds left?

    of course, I'm keeping them running.

    also working on the next upgrade now.

    I actually liked the look of the Velleman K8200 but it looks like the RepRapPro Ormerod has a slightly better modding community.

    I too looked at that one, pop in Maplins quite regularly, I liked the way the RRP one was open source, not sure if the velleman one is or not.

    the RRP forum is brilliant, some very clever types hanging around there, issues get fixed very quickly.
