    Much like what they have done with
    washing machine
    s. I'm amazed at how quiet a direct-drive machine is on full spin....

    Re: On the water!
    Very true! Fishermen do love a sub!! Showed one of my fishermen friends earlier, he asked how I made the trawls. Told him it was the bags you put your socks in when they go in the
    washing machine
    and a satsuma bag for the cod ends.. He said a couple of two hour tows across the lake should give a good haul of satsumas!!

    Go for it! If you get one in kit form it will keep the costs down, with the added advantage of learning how the machine works as you build it. Prusa probably do the best kits on the market, pricey but decent European quality. Tronxy or Creality are good Chinese machines starting at around 150 for something decent enough to get you going. Chinese quality has come on in leaps and bounds over the last few years and they have listened to the community and made improvements accordingly. And then comes the endless hours of fun 'upgrading'. There are plenty of on line forums and social media groups for advice and assistance, so for the price of a boat kit you can add a whole new dimension to your modelling skills. Not just modelling either, there is a thousand and one things you can do. For example, I replaced a ยฃ15 button on the
    washing machine
    in half an hour with 20 pence worth of plastic.
