This is not milling, I know, but...
I bought a 3D printer from here http://www.coolcomponents.co.uk/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=89&products_id=644
It arrived this afternoon and I assembled it and got it to work, kind of.
The parts come unstuck while being made, which cause them to warp a bit.
Apparently I can fix this by sticking some Scotch Blue Painter's Tape to the machine bed, instead of using the green paint, they supply.
I don't know if I can buy any of this tape in Malvern, England.

 I coloured the heart with a permanent marker. You can use solvent based paint for painting ABS, though.
The heart was almost 1mm undersize in both axes.

I liked the sound the plastic part makes when I drop it onto the table.

I went to the books web page and examined it out, the web page was really primary, written text and a few images here and there. To Cheap Runescape Gold my shock the web page had a large fan platform on facebook or myspace with around 2000 associates. So I began studying and I liked what I read WOW Gold ; this wasn't your common information, it wasn't the common fraud information that said you would get cheap diablo 3 Gold your freebies in a few minutes provided that you authorized here and bla bla bla.
