Hello all,

I don't know if many people are still following this list. I hope everyone is
surviving and thriving after the onslaught of then past year and a half.

I've recently dismantled a pair of early-generation home-built Mendel 3D
printers, as I'm planning to use a Prusa for my further adventures in this space.

As a result I have a quantity of 3mm PLA filament, and most of the once-working
parts for the Mendel printers surplus to my requirements. If anyone is
interested in doing something with these, do give me a shout.

The printers were both once functional, but I did experience problems with the
extruder "hot ends" - they had a tendency to clog up over time, and as a result
the filament extrusion didn't always work as it should. One has very early
generation elevtronics which I had working with a Windows laptop. The other
used a RAMPS board (I think), and I was able to drive that from a Raspberry Pi,
making a self-contained 3D printing system. Both are currently disassembled
into sub-assemblies for compact storage, but I tried to make sure I preserved
all the pieces.

Any interest, before I strip them down completely for their components?

Hi Graham,

There's a young apprentice at Computer Assistance in Oxford who was working with their (somewhat junky) 3D printer.

Would you mind if I passed this message and your contact details along to him in case he's interested?
