70 year old retires - Thanks to DC42/T3P3 +everyone who helped me.

  • I built my own mid size of DC42's large Kossel Delta with many metal parts and many other parts from T3P3
    I now have to give up it up as 3D printing is not good for Ashtma sufferers and my Oxygen tanks!
    So my 24V, 0.9 deg, DuetWifi Kossel Delta Midi is for sale at a Bargain price or I will sell it as parts.
    Anyone interested please send me a message and i will photos and price list .

    Thanks for your support! I'm sorry to hear that you are having to give up 3D printing. What filament were you using that was giving you problems? I gave up printing ABS because it made me cough, but thankfully I've had no problems printing PLA or PETG so far.

  • Oxygen is for another condition, and the Oxygen risk assessment would not allow 3D printing in same space - very dangerous.
    PLA was fine I agree.

  • Ah yes. I tried Oxygen at home for my cluster headaches. It didn't work for me so I discontinued it and rely on Sumatriptan injections and other medication. That's also why I can't print ABS - the smell can trigger the headaches (as can BBQs, cleaning the oven and various other smells).

    I can see why risk assessment people would get excited but I'd think that in reality, as there are no naked flames involved, there is no true hazard. However, it's probably impossible to get a risk assessor to see reason on that score.

    Sorry to hear of you health issues and I hope you get a good price for the Kossel.

  • Very interesting and an unhappy coincidence?.
    My condition is cluster headaches too.
    Had them for over 12 months now..
    My neurologist, the top man in London in this field, also prescribed Oxygen and Sumatriptan.
    Oxygen @ 100% for 20 minutes at 15 litres/min - seems to work.
    No alcohol and no caffeine as these can also be triggers 😞
    Now i am on Zolmitriptan which is Sumatriptan in nasal spray form - when Oxygen does not work
    or out of town. Much easier and a much cheaper than the injections.
    First i had 4 weeks heavy does of steroids
    That was only a temporary fix.
    No I am permanently on Verapamil 40mpg x 3 times per day.
    I have been cluster headache free for over 3 weeks.
    If it returns they will increase the Verapamil dose
    I hope this helps you.

  • Merlin,

    I've sent you an email. I started with Cluster headaches about 5 years ago but I'm sure other forum users don't want to know about all the pills we oldies have to take :). So I'm happy to carry on this conversation by email.


  • Merlin, did you consider switching to resin 3D printers? Don't know if resins can trigger headaches, but no problem with oxygen…

  • Guys and Gals
    I am overwhelmed by your response.
    I will post an update of what remains when I sort it out.
    The DuetWifi is certainly sold, many times over!
    The wife could not be more pleased that all my 'junk' is finally getting moved.

  • Wow - over 24Kg of parts and tools sent, and I now have one empty shelf.
    The only items I discovered that remain are:
    1 x DC42 mini IR sensor v1.0 @ £10
    1 x DC42 mini IR sensor v1.1 @ £10 (or was it called v2.0 ?)
    First one to go gets a fully wired/crimped cable . P&P included.
    Both should give 3 flashes on power up or full refund given.

    T3P3 Mini Kossell carbon fibre rods with TRAXXAS rod ends assembled by me, so not as perfect as Roland's.
    @ £10 plus £2.90 p&p.

    E3D V6 boot with cartridge thermistor - never used.
    @ £4 inc p&p.

    Just been drooling over the spec of the T3P3 Kossell XL - well an old man can still dream!
