Reprap box lid failure [Permalink]

I haven't posted anything for a while, I thought I should fix that.

This will only be a short post, I recently broke the lid on my reprap box. It was a fairly clean break and so I fixed it by bolting some small sections of plastic I still had lying around to each side.

This is probably slightly less worthy of a blog post than some other things I have done but I need to post something, It's been too long.

So here are some photos, as always - click for bigger.

And then countersinking with this very useful tool;

Then I could bolt the fixing plates on;
