  1. Surely you would ignore that, just like the flashing low battery sign on the screen
  2. oh man, you were so grump when the 3rd alternator was 'shit' hahaha
  3. mmm, that was yum! Good to see you peeps, lil baby needed sleep or could have yarned much longer about things other than EVs too In town a couple more days if any of you lot who think EVs are still 10 years away wanna have a hoon in 'mine' and see what all the fuss is about
  4. Me and Lexy will be there, and will have 2 small humans
  5. We have access to a little bit.... what you after?
  6. Me and Lexy are in town next week (Thu 15th to Sun 18th) would be nice to say hi and see some people if theres a meet on around that time of month?
  7. Hey all, I work for Drive EV now, and on top of selling EVs, we also service most of the lower North Island for Leaf firmware updates and language conversions etc. We have a few garages around the country where we go and set up for the day and service a few cars in that town, and we're getting more and more in the Hawkes Bay, so looking to see if anyone has a bay we can for a day use every so often? Ideally, we would like a place to pull a car inside, has a power point or two to run our gear from, and would be turbo nice if there was a "customer lounge" for someone to wait around while I did the updates. For other workshops this works in their favour as they can now offer our services to their customers and keep them from shopping around etc, but I can probably make sure the beer fridge gets a healthy injection of libations if need be or something along those lines. We don't do it as a money maker, we do it to keep customers happy really. Let me know if anyone has any ideas! xoxo Ned 021 413 423

  9. Aliexpress has loads of options just saying
  10. I can make you some mate. Have a few designs on file already ive been making for some local businesses
  11. Fuck yeah! Nice! I found some sheets of 3660x1830 or something like that. Ended up with a torsion box table 3500x1750x200. Pretty bloody heavy haha! But for $50, thats a fucking win! Bet he'll want stuff CNCed every week for $50 now
  12. nice! thats what im looking for as well, something that size! Pretty sure those are pretty terrible for vac tables... Probably need proper vac pump to actually hold anything down...
  13. sweet! how many watts? i keep seeing some cheap ones pop up, but are only 750W and im hoping for a big one! Shop vac works ace my little CNC, but keen to plumb all my things into one unit. also, BIG fan of cyclones! oh my, my cheap china one does a 10/10 job! and stops you sucking big things through the impeller of your vacuum haha
  14. also, fasttrade is amaze balls for fasteners in general. online website with pricing and deliver quick etc will trade again and again and again
  15. you can add a 4th servo to the device, and spin the marker around 180deg and have an eraser on the end, and trace the same path it wrote for the last number, and write the new one
  16. i really want to make one now haha. Seems fun!
  17. one of you cold island dwellers should just buy this...= https://www.trademe.co.nz/business-farming-industry/industrial/manufacturing-metalwork/other/listing-2704414280.htm
  18. i just wanted to come and say i like this. Thats all... i have nothing else of value to add to this post/build, you're doing a killer job!
  19. terrible timing (on my part, i should have considered this!) but we have a little one due on the 9th of Dec... and with Lexys history, there is no way i'm going to be able to make this one sorry. And i was even planning on riding this time hahahaha
  20. Instead of paying people to marshal, you could offer a free 1/2 day for marshaling the other 1/2 of the day? I hate putting my hand up to marshal because you always get told "we'll swap you out in a few hours" and you never get swapped out haha, but happy to do a 1/2 day
  21. Thats ok, as i actually meant the cosmopolitan club anyway haha, my bad
  22. I got a reduced kit to save shipping and got just nuts/bolts etc, motors and chains, motor driver, z motor (was optional then) No router. I bought the Bosch POF something or other and modified it to drive itself as the Z axis. It was actually very popular and appear to be the common way to donit now for places that arent the US as they use a different router (110v) Mine was 3d printed at home but some dude got me a baller 3d printed one from straya, and then some dude 5 axis machined me one out of aluminium in the UK. So sweet! Such a shame its not being used hahaha
  23. I got one of the maslow from the first kickstarter batch... Never got it running as everyone was reporting rubbish results and tried converting it to xy and then i found the lowrider and just built that last year
