In our house, none of us drinks Coffee. But we do drink a lot of Tea. Usually Black Tea with Milk ("English Tea" to us). I prefer Ty-phoo Tea, but PG Tips is ok as well.
So I have a few go to mugs that I prefer. So without further ado this is my (current) list:
I really, really want to be a 3D Printing Noob. Not that I want to stay one. I just want to get started on 3D Printing. Or rather, I would like to have my own 3D printer.
I have had a few tries (2) at 3D printing items, at publicly available printers, but it would be really, really nice to have my own 3D printer. That is what this blog will be about. How to find and buy the right 3D printer (for me) with the funds I have available.

Luckily a friend had this used Printrbot Simple Metal for sale:
