Oh yeah, and I can't wait for the lasersaur open source release!

As of this fix and the most recent round of software updates the lasersaur has surpassed our 10ish year old used commercial laser cutter in reliability. It was an important milestone for us. The build was a bit more complex then a reprap but that's probably due to early stage documentation and design. I've been happy with how its going but the friend I'm working with doesn't seem to be as happy. He's an artist not an engineer and he couldn
’t have got it running himself.

Acetone also does a good job for bearing-insertion tasks. Just brush some around inside the bearing housing, let it sit for 30 seconds or so, and squish your bearing right in. Obviously, don't load it up until it hardens again 8]

As my parts ware printed out of PLA I have to use a heat gun instead of acetone.
