    I've given up on brackets for now and added 40mm M5 screws in each of the four corners of the aluminium bed plate to space it away from the sheet of OSB I'm using as a base.

    I have a problem with the supports for the print bed when set at 120°C for printing ABS - they're softening and the bed is sinking I used PETG and that doesn't take the temperature. I'll try ABS or maybe Nylon

    Lifting the Lid

    As an engineer, I can think of lots of things. I have an image in my mind of a twisted mess of fibreglass and iron Please take care.

    Maplin sale

    Yes indeed! I used to love popping into Maplins and having a good look round. I have bought a lot of things from them over the years, from when they were just a home front room in deepest Essex to multiple stores throughout the land. How things change! First time I built my own desktop PC from parts I got everything from Maplin.
