    For HIS last ride, not their last ride.

    [–] New cnc potential buyer question. Help please wildxlion 2 points ago in CNC

    My cnc experience is limited to hobby/self built machines out of extrusion, so I would honestly recommend a 2x4 machine from CNCRP/Avid CNC. I think $5k is just enough to get you started there. You can do a lot with a 2x4 (you might be able to swing a 4x4 machine too), and for me, I just tile my toolpaths if I need to work on a longer project, even up to a full sheet. You can save a lot more if you do the electronics yourself, as I did, but I'm not sure how comfortable you are with that.

    Building it yourself (they have a very good guide, and a few youtubers have documented the process) is invaluable, and you learn a lot about the machine itself.

    I'm sure there are lots of machines I'm missing at that price point, of course.

    I haven't really followed anyone at all on twitter. might be a good time to start with Chef Mike!

    [–] TIL the Japanese usually leave out most of their history from the early 1900s to WW2 from their high school curriculum. wildxlion 1 points ago in todayilearned

    There's a big resort in the central/south area with a golf course, track, man-made lake, etc. It's quite common for tourists to rent vehicles and drive down south as well. Things change in 20 years...

    The Navy has a hotel on base for those waiting for housing, for the most part.

    I live on Guam and interestingly enough, a lot of tourists (mostly Japanese) go to WWII memorial sites or parks here, and it's basically telling them what atrocities Japan committed against the island during the occupation.

    "Wow this resort has a track and soccer/football field, giant pool and and beautiful water features"

    "Yup, also, over that ridge is where the Japanese marched thousands of men, women, and children to their deaths with a planned machinegun massacre during WWII"

    Bruno Mars' Superbowl performance felt like he was channeling Powerline, and while it alone was awesome, the sudden wave of nostalgia made it even more fun to watch

    [–] Its not every day you see Kangaroo's in the snow wildxlion 1 points ago in gifs

    Huh. I thought snow in Australia was actually fields covered in spider webs or something. Go figure.

    I can't believe it's finally time to consider those "classics".

    And they made a sequel to 13 ghosts and Zombie Island.

    Practically every song in that game was perfect for it's section.

    I considered for a second if this really happened and the flight attendant was just being sarcastic.

    [–] Queen’s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ Sets YouTube Record By Becoming the Oldest Song to Hit 1 Billion Views wildxlion 2 points ago in Music

    They weren't as popular in the US at the time. I think Bohemian Rhapsody barely broke the top 10 Billboard then. But when that scene came out, it was literally a new generation exposed to that song, almost 20 years after the songs initial release.

    "You are ruining a babies life."

    Okay, I see what's going on here... So who's dog were you named after?

    [–] Build quality not great but could be better wildxlion 2 points ago in MPSelectMiniOwners

    Ask those guys what's wrong then...

    All kidding aside, if filament diameter in Cura is correct, then I would try to take a closer look at the extruder motor feeder, check for any cracks, filament build up in the gear, loose screw on the gear. When it prints, do you see any jerky movements happening to the filament? I would also check the ptfe tube connections and see if they move in and out of the Bowden connectors.
