It doesn't pay to be too confident as illustrated in the photograph below.     The melted white blob thing on the left is the first attempt at printing ...

I started a while ago collecting bits to use anticipating a quick start, but Christmas preparations have intervened and I have only just been able to find some spare time. I have collected a few bits and a small wooden box and my intention is to make something relatively small that re ...
