"Professional industrial doesn't matter we covered all my name's andy cohen. I'm here mr whitney potter. You doing andy. I'm doing pretty good. So let's see what's going on these days. The news is been a little bit on the light side but one thing that did show up in my email. We're was from the folks. Out in gauchan indiana were they hold the midwest. Rep rep festival. I got a note that says that they're going to try to make a go of it in march of twenty twenty one. Let's aims optimistic. I think optimistic is actually It's a little bit more than optimistic. Considering that they're telling us at least in the news that the vaccine will not be fully distributed to the majority of the population until well after march probably late april. May those those of us who have Special conditions who are sensitive. That might actually die from. The virus will likely get it earlier but the general population not the case as such. I would bet that. The state of indiana says no to large public exhibitions such as murph. That's okay the they could always hold an outdoors soon now and march an enhanced. That'll that'll work out really well. I could just see the parts not sticking to the bed because it's so cold outside right i. I'm i'm sad to say that. Say this i. I won't go. I'd love to go. I wish i could go. Because murph was hands down the m- the most enjoyable fund three d. printing related event. I've ever gone to and i would. I can't wait to go again. But i'm going to bet my life on going to murph and other others to go and it's not just murph it's it's gonna be air travel at that point So yeah. I think that that's optimistic. I if i were them i would be scheduling it for later in the year and be more likely to actually have ago but You know there's a whole bunch of politics behind all this that we don't need to get into So we'll see we do have other news on that's interesting..

"Professional industrial doesn't matter. We covered all my name's Andy Cohen I'm here Mr Whitney Potter. You Doing, Andy I'm doing pretty good saw interesting kind of new story. I'm not sure if this is news or not, but we'll get to why So this is a three D. printing industry and the title of this article is the top five mistakes. Every Three D. printing service makes in their first few years of business. You know away from before you start reading the article. First few years of business. And they made it through one year. Right. They're doing pretty good for three D. Printing Service Company. Yeah. They made it through one year Unless of course, you've been given a couple of million bucks and you're expected to be profitable and say three years. I I don't do business that way I know there are people that do, but I don't I usually have to. have. Some momentum moving into the service business to begin with, which is what we did. We has some momentum to begin with and it started slow and built up steadily. seem some people don't see that way. But anyway, let's read the article the a look at this article. And if as you as you scroll down, you'll see there's a numbered list of things that the author points to as the mistakes and the first mistake is underpricing their services. I, I would agree with that. Sure you make that mistake you can under price it and you can overprice it. The problem isn't over or underpricing the problem is not really having a valid pricing. Methodology. You should have your criteria set up my criteria which may not apply to other businesses was how much time did it take to three? D. Print. Now, I would. qualify. Whether it was printable even before I did that because lots of times I get folks say print this these files for me in the files were just skins and I would say, no. Can print those you gotta pay me to do some development on them, and that's GonNa cost you much more than they go. Now don't want it and they walk away that happened quite a bit quite often but assuming that the prentice qualified then I say how much time is take because the assumption is a my machines tuned and certified they're they're trustworthy be there's an individual not necessarily mean in fact, rarely me that monitored. and. See Post processing. How much work did it take after the print was complete? So those things were taken into account..

"Don't matter. We covered all my name's Andy Cohen I'm here Mr Whitney Potter. Hey. How. You Doing Andy, I'm doing pretty good. So what's this about the typhoon extruder? You just told me about what is this thing? Yeah. This is kind of interesting as a company in Canada called dies design announced a new extruder. For A. Of, a safer large scale three D printers They're touting the the it's extrusion rate says it can print up to ten times the speed of of a standard extruder. So it's interesting I can looked into it just to kind of see what they were doing differently. It's very high and that's all you know. CNC machine aluminum parts It has what they call the Quad Pinch driving mechanism so like they have like multiple pinch points to ensure that they've that. They are you know got a good grip on the filament interestingly there their heat barrel has has to heat zones and it's it reminds me of like you know back in the back in the day, you know the old school kind of Cupcake extruders, the the heat barrel is actually heated by by cartridge heaters that are wrapped around the outside of it, which is interesting at as two different zones. You can control temperature in differently in different zones on her. Entirely. Clear on what the what the benefit of that is because the top zone. I would think I would actually be wanting to be cooling rather than heating just to a lower temperature but anyways, not not sure what what's going on with that Two issues that I have with it. The first one, which might not be a problem for some people but certainly as a as a as a game ender for me is that it's twenty three hundred dollars. Yeah. But listen according it's in quotes with PLA we achieved a flow rate. Okay you ready for this not for even say it for an ender three the average flow rate is around forty to sixty millimeters per second. The average flay achieved the flow rate of two hundred millimeters cubed per second. Right so so what so what does that in turn Hundred Times two hundred? Right. So they're talking about how much volume they're putting through. So how does that compare to? Talk about how much linear? That's that's Like almost like a hose shooting liquid water out of it right I wonder you know what I really WanNa see the printer that this things attached to. Well the only picture we can see of it is they say it's a a Beta version mounted on a filament innovations. F. P. E. Kara's, which is not a printer that I'm I'm familiar with. But just from what you can see in the in the picture at it seems to be all axes seemed to be driven with with ball screws ball. Rails an interesting interesting choice. But A. Couple of advantages I can see with this. One of one of them is that this thing is water cooled. So that, you have the ability to use it in a heated chamber. And then you can. You can keep the parts of it. Cool. You need by lying cooling to it internally through the through liquid cooling system which you know for that type of printer you know makes makes sense if you're gonNA use it and and it's all you know machined aluminum. So there's nothing in there. That's GonNa Melt Not Three D. printed parts or anything they're going to melt or deform when you when you get it hot so. That could be an advantage for it The other disadvantage I have with that is that is that they list it's weight as fifteen hundred grams which is a little bit north of three pounds. So. It's really great that you can get all this material flying through it but how are you going to move fast enough to actually make print unless you're printing with a very large nozzle?.

"Doesn't matter. We covered all my name's Andy Cohen and I'm here Mr Whitney Potter. High you doing Andy. So they're interesting stories that just keep. Coming back I mean we? We keep seeing the same story about three D. printing guns. We keep seeing the same stories about fire dangers. We we see so many of the source. I stories coming back again and again, and this story is probably one of the most. Stories that come again, that's the the issue of the dangers of of VOC's. follow title. Was the not what is the OH stand for? Organic well I think in this in this case particulates, aren't they? Yes they are, but they do say they're VOC's. The call them VOC's so this is a story on Three D. printing industry. And it's a bunch of researchers. A couple of accommodations in Korea Seoul. National University and this particular study. They looked carefully at the effects it on an F. D. M. printers with a set of different materials and the amount of emissions based on the degree of heat. I looked at this thought on. Yeah that that. That's kind of intuitive, isn't it? I mean the more you you apply to immaterial. The more gassing you should expect. I would expect it to sure. And that's what they found. Isn't that amazing? Well? Sometimes, it's good to have it have a well documented scientific study. That confirms what you suspected. Yeah, but well you'll notice that. The study was not published in a jury journal. It's posters in a safety looks like it would have been an exhibition poster. Just it's not. It's not published in a scientific journal. Not Peer reviewed. Yes, not peer reviewed. It's not. Like it does, it doesn't I I know I've I've published in those journals? And one of the first criteria also is. It is a value, does it? Does it say anything? I don't think this article says all that much I. really don't I. Mean I already knew? that as to the temps go up, more smells GONNA. Come off the printer well right, but they're they're. They're confirming that. They can measure that. That's I mean that's science. There's value to it Yeah, I! A couple of things that I think are are important to that about this is that they're talking about printing Nylon Pla ABS and lay would at which is the would like Sawdust, fused filament, and their P., l., a., and the an Pele so that they're talking about all these different materials, and they're printing them up to two hundred ninety degrees C. Yeah. I mean. Who would do that?

"To Three D. printing today. The podcast about all aspects of Three D. Printing Hobby professional industrial. It does not matter we cover it all. My Name's Andy Cohen here. Mr Whitney Potter Naidoo and Andy. Actually not here. I'm here but Whitney's way over there in her fried in era being relative thing yeah. You're you're far away and we're gonNA continue doing this until I'm not GONNA say hell freezes over Bud until there's a vaccine or we have heard immunity but we're still shelter in place like I hope you are out there right and we'll continue to do so while it's prudent and we will continue to flatten that curve which we are all doing quite well right now which. I think is awesome. Good stories out there. We've got actually three things. That are adventurous. The first one and the ad they are Cova nineteen related. And that's kind of hard to get away from these days because it's what's happening in the world. It's all that's happening because we're all home doing nothing or hoping trying to work of so. The first story is about how Lamborghini is working with a company that makes ventilators and Lamborghini has put their HP multi jet to use to generate. What they call an an a an artificial lung or a lung simulator. Now I I looked at this and thought. Oh so. They're basically making an air pump for a ventilator. But that's not is it. No actually this is a piece of test equipment For A for a ventilator so if you have a new design ventilator or in the processing the manufacturing facility were you make ventilators you need to test them to make sure that they can produce you know a certain amount of of flow at a certain rate against the actual resistance of of a long and this is basically as a simulated long that allows them to To perform those tests. So I'm assuming that this is not something. They came up with on their own and decided that it would be clever for them to make that and and You know release it on the world. I'm assuming this is something that the manufacturer ventilator manufacturer ask foreign said that this was something that was Yohan an issue in in their supply chain that they needed more of these to be able to make and test more ventilators in the article. Which by the way is in three d? Printing Industry dated April Sixteenth. There's a photograph of what they're producing. And I gotTa admit like almost all new stories. When you study the photograph your little bit you can see that. The story was a little bit a little bit more hyperbole than it is real interesting news. Because if you look at the photograph you'll realize all that lamborghinis actually producing with HP MULTI. Jet Is the frame of this thing and the bellows you. Well you know that the multi jet did make it simply because you can see the seem. Yeah so are. We don't know where they get the bellows for this lung simulator from. But you know they didn't make it in their. Hp multi jet. There'd be no scene there if it was an HP multi jet unfortunately and then the story goes on to talk about how they're using Carbon dos technology to generate two hundred polycarbonate face shields a day and I found that also to be a little bit Hype he stuff. Because if you look at the photograph following that you see that they're actually producing like we all are those frames that get attached to your head and not the clear shield and I don't know about you but on seeing on TV. All the first responders risking their lives working to the bone in and out there every day. And what I'm seeing them wearing now are facials. That are attached to their masks. That their breathing masks. They're super inexpensive super flexible. Clear face shields. So there's no longer an essential need for these kind of headbands that we're seeing people producing for the most important people that are doing the work. There's a a way simpler approach that they're they're jumping at using right now so I am looking at both of these thing Atlanta. I think this was one of those hype. Hyperbole kind of things Gotcha see I don. I don't know that I kind of disagree with the the not need for For Fe Shields Because the the face shield where where you have the shield attached the top of the mask that that's a mad those have been around forever. That's been served standard hospital equipment and a lot of places but they may not have them. I agree but to use. Dos Technology carbon their carbon machine for this producing two hundred a day. Come on ABC. You're a couple of million a day right with yes there are. There are actually Injection moulding companies. That have gotten on this. Perhaps with Three D. PRINTED DIES. But they are injection molding these these things by the hundreds of thousands the in fact. I saw another article saying that. Now the the big problem in the supply chain. Is Ashley the plastic film that you see through exactly? That's my. They're having to to work on that. So yeah if you're if you're looking for somebody to three D print at home. I don't know that I would just set out and print a a huge number of these unless you have a call for them from your local hospital or local first responders and you have a established source for the film because otherwise you're just wasting your time wasting your film. I strongly strongly agree with that. So let's shift gears and move away from what I think is not necessarily all that important to a story which I think can be very important And this one came out a little bit earlier. This was also in Three D. Printing Industry dated July April Ninth July. Don't I wish April ninth and the the article title is Volunteers Developed? Three D printable ventilator based on nine hundred sixty five. Us Army design. This is an interesting article for for two reasons. It's interesting because they talk about this. This part that is not easy to make like the rest of the ventilator is is easy to produce. It's this particular part which is tricky to make and it's three d printable the entire component. It's a critical component. All the other components are kind of off the shelf. They're multi-use components but this thing is highly specialized in its design and it's basically a kind of evolving system and it was designed a long time ago for mass production. And it's easy to three D print this solo. You've really got to know what you're doing to three D. printed correctly And I thought that was pretty interesting. But the the other story that is also very interesting here. Is that the the people that are doing this. That's a story in and of itself The article describes A group called helpful engineering made up of twelve thousand volunteers international group. That's online the the link is in this new story. If you want the link to the new story it'll be in our show notes on our forums. I went there and I gotta say that in itself is an interesting story because here's where that crowd of people are that are making all the masks in the shields and the ventilator parts in the respirator parts and the the I mean. There's there's samples of the month in verse and you'll see pieces of it here and there but here's a highly organized very large group of very talented skilled people all working together around the world and you'll see projects on this website about splash protectors masks and different types of masks oxygen concentrator 's filters ventilators. There's a project here to make a visor that goes on baseball. Cap visor Whole sorts of really interesting stuff. I think that's the the real good story here. My Opinion Yeah. There's a lot of different Sort of online communities that have that have formed in. This seems to very well organized which is Great. Because I remember in the early days I mean as the early days being like two weeks ago I I looked at one of them and it was. It was sort of a a great compendium of all these different projects that people had been have been thinking about and it was being done on. Google docs and the whole thing was basically a single google. Doc and I got on as like the Google doc and eighty seven. People were editing it and it was it was basically crashing. You you couldn't you couldn't actually use it right so so now you know. Things have scaled up the people who understand how to organize the data have have put together. You know systems to to you know. Get these things organized. So that's great. Yeah and the link for this website by the way is all one word helpful engineering and DOT ORG. And you'll find it fascinating place to go if you're looking to become part of this and you're sitting around and you have a three printer on the skills. Gather Helpful Engineering Dot Org. In the meantime what we got on our show this week. Whitney show number thirty thirty one a we start out asking. The question are maker spaces viable now. This was before before Kovin were they. Full postcode the answer is obviously no But not for a while. Maybe we'll see if they come back and then you're gonNa tell me about soft space And then we're GONNA have a look at the end or three MAG bed plate. Sounds Great. Let's do it so I taught a class last weekend over it at one eighty studios the.

"Hobby professional industrial, it does not matter. We covered all my name's Andy Cohen on here. Mr. Whitney Potter, I eighty I'm doing pretty wish I had something to talk about. Because here we are posts holiday season post CAS, and really there's not that much out there. That's happening. That's all that interesting compared to the past what six seven years. Yeah. It's kinda strange. I mean there there have been printer announcements, but none of them are really very differentiated or really special. There's been lots of the usual. Researchers have done this. And researchers have done that come good for research as we've had our gun stories. Got those getting kind of kind of bleak out there. News wise, which you know, does not necessarily bowl. Well, but who knows maybe something's on the horizon. We're gonna hear great story. But one thing that is on the horizon that I am excited about that. I want to mention is that I actually have completed my arrangements than I am definitely this year. Unless there's some unforeseen event definitely this year. I'm going to m r f in Goshen, Indiana. So you got your parka. Yes. Got your muck locks. Yeah. Well, let's get your dog team. It is the last the last weekend of April. No last weekend of March US we shouldn't have last week individual the last weekend of March and the first day of April on Oprah. And that's just the slush season. Yeah. I grew up in the mid west. On the east coast. But the both of us live on the west coast where it's temporary reunion climate. And so we're not are are are neurons of moved all moved closer to the surface of our skin. So a little bit sensitive. So I'm going to be out there. I'm gonna brave the temperature and we're going in the mid west rep rep festive and it's it's fairly well known in the three D printing open source community as the defect. Oh, three D printing Centric fest. It's in the midwest. I think it's coast to coast. Now, of course, there are commercial Expos than those didn't diminishing over TCU big industrial. Yeah. Yes. Is still out there. News industrial a one could say, well, wait a minute. Andy. What about the maker faire? The last couple of years maker fairs not I mean, there's been stuff for three D printing. But nowhere near what they're used to be. Yeah, we we used to have areas set aside at the maker faire both of New York, Anna San Mateo, and possibly and other locations. I I may not know where there was as much open source three d printing activity as there is at M R F A now our last foray to the San Mateo maker faire that area has shrunk to really tiny area..

"Three D printing. Today, the podcast about all aspects of three D printing. Hobby professional industrial, it does not matter. We covered all on the show. My name's Andy Cohen, and I'm here at Mr. Whitney Potter how you doing doing pretty good. I wanna talk about an article in three D printing industry that came out quite a while ago, December fifth. So I think this shows coming out I think early January this is about a month ago. We finally got around talking about this doubt. They what these guys did. I think pretty sure this is the same group of people that put up this webpage the three D printing industry website. They came up with an index away a series of questions that they posed to companies these are not necessarily companies that are in the three D printing industry, but companies that may or may not use three D printing for their own production. And they ask how how has his trading activity at your company or in the past three months now, they don't really explain to us what trading activity means. So I have to assume that's British for business. I can't tell I mean that could also mean how have your stock been traded in the past three months or perhaps? But you wouldn't ask somebody that you just look up. The numbers is true though. This is true. And then they ask how do you expect trading activity to be during the the coming three months? And then they ask are you expanding your three D printing workforce in Babic spanned. In the past three months. And then they ask are you going to expand in the next three months, then they ask what your gross margin for the next three months, but you expect there the pre- pretty weird questions. I mean, they're not. Three months. First of all is a blink an I blink. I mean, you can't most companies it's hard most large companies. It's hard to get your.

"Welcome back to today the podcast about all aspects of three deep renting hobby professional industrial. It doesn't matter. A week of it. All my name's Andy Cohen on Amir, Mr. Whitney Potter. How you doing? I'm doing pretty good age. You hear that apple got yet? Another patent. Yeah. Related to three D printing. Yes. This is using triangular testily in three D printing. Yeah. So I looked at the articles. There was like one article written about it. That didn't really explain it. Very well. So we were able to find the patent. This is not the patent about augmented reality in three D printing. This is a a new patent, and it looks to us like it's basically a patent that was omitted in twenty four teen for what the community has been referring to subdivided cubic infill now subdivided cubic infil. We have talked about on this show before I'm pretty sure I'm pretty sure I've seen it. It's incur-. I haven't tried it. I'm gonna. Go after this. I'm gonna I remember when it when it came out it was there was a lot of interest in it. Yeah. And I think it's also in slicer with a three a name of a piece of software, which they probably should change because you can't really say it three or slick three or no. But in any case, it looks like they were granted the patent looks like it, which means in the updates of these software packages. I bet we could expect them to be eliminated. Well, the cubic subdivision hospital cure is a is a commercial product. But slicer with a three is an open source project. Isn't it a so's cure is cure? Well, but curious is the is the product of open of ultimate, but they don't charge for it. And it is open source. Right. But that but that, but it is from a commercial comes from a commercial company. Right. And it supports a commercial product. If you have a truly distributed open source project. I mean, yeah. Apple could sue and open source project. But how there'd be no money, right? There's no money in. There's I mean, you you could sue if you could identify a person who is the head of it. But that's not the point. I think the point is they'll be able to say. Anybody out there? That's now our property. We'd like you to remove it from your software because our product is differentiated by something such as that. Right. So you're going to hurt ourselves. So you have to remove it. Oh, sure. And I think that's what they're going to do with it. Yeah. Well, and and you know, that's kind of the way the world works. Unfortunately that if you've got money to go out and patent something. It doesn't matter. If it's actually a utility to you at this point, but you can patent it and provided you have the patent and the resources to enforce it and have the lawyers write nasty letters and whatever else needs to be done. But but but a company like apple they make so much money. That's not that's not their way of doing business. They don't give a crap. It's it's either give me something to dominate or create more marketplace that's their way of doing it. So I believe I think that's not why they did it first of all. You pointed this out to me, by the way that they submitted the patent long before years before it ever showed up online on the in the open source world, which means they do there is no prior art right to what they submitted. Yeah. So their patents legit patents legit. First of all second of all. There's really no money for them to to go after or to bother people with I believe this is very indicative of a coming apple product. Sure. Yeah. They've been there's been a lot of talk about them entering the market with a full color three d printer. Now. Now, you gotta wonder about that. They're they're they're fairly smart company. Right. They they do their homework. They do their diligence. Then they would know a full color three d printer. It's not going to make dominate the marketplace. Otherwise, those that do full color would be dominating the marketplace. I think we'll ni- opinion is my opinion that if you want to dominate the marketplace, which apple likes to do you need to come up with a machine that's cost effective and meets the most use cases..

"Printing hobby, professional, industrial, it doesn't matter. We covered all my name's Andy Cohen here. Mr. Whitney Potter, how you doing India. I'm doing pretty good. But boy, this past week's been pretty exciting in cyber line. Oh, what did you the stories of to get the whole story? The start from the beginning years ago when the replicator came out maker bot started a Google group called maker about operators goo group or mog or mog mog anyway. At some point after the replicator to series came out and before the gen five came out maker about decided that they didn't want that to be their primary method of communicating support, things weren't going the way they want it. At some point, people were talking about flash forge were were saying things that they didn't want to be said, yeah, they, they want to hear the critiques that they were getting because people were purchasing flash forges and talking about flash Gorges and needed one here that and they were deleting threads and a couple of us got pretty upset myself included and said, well, the heck with this group and we went and started other groups. I started a group called maker bot users Google group, and that went fallow for a while because nobody cared and another person started three printing three d printer tips, tricks and reviews, and a lot of people who built their own three printers that were in the maker. BOC group moved over there including myself. And for quite a while that was where we all kind of hung out and chatted, and a lot of the stuff that we talk about on the show started from discussions that were in that Google group. The guy who made that Google group, he started chatting and was part of it. But at some point just dropped out and we never heard from him for years and times gone on years have gone by and we're talking about guns and member a little while ago. There was discussion about liberator. Again, we're gonna talk about the end results of that in the show today in this episode, but I decided to build a liberator and talk about my experiences on the Google. Well, the person who made that Google group originally who started the Google group because they didn't like the fact that maker von censoring. He went in and deleted my throat. He didn't like discussions on guns because it's what he didn't like wanted. Okay. The excuse he gave was it's against the law which is not against a lot of talk about it, which is nonsense nonsense. So I said, I didn't say anything. I just disappeared. I'm not going to post on form of any kind where I could be deleted because one person doesn't like what I said. Even though what I said was fully Gle, not in the least bit profane. Hurting into the group. There was no discussion in there. You'll ear the other. What that whole topic was about today in the show. In a segment, regardless I moved into a different group which was closed and at some point of an acquaintance of ours who will eventually have on the show, he's on his way from long island's.

"Andy cohen and i'm here at mr whitney potter how you doing andy i'm doing pretty good but boy we've got some burning issues to talk about so not that long ago article in hakodate dot com three d printer halts and catches fire analysis finds a surprising culprit it's an aim at eight and in a nutshell they're saying that the heater popped out of the extruder now when the heater pops out of the extruder what happens was that the heater or the thermo couple i think they said the heater if you just element pop the pop free from the heat block right so if you move the thermal couple or the heater away from each other right you no longer have a closed loop close lou right and so it can't read when it's fte set temperature so it keeps sending energy the heater well depending on if your if your firmware allows that and that's one of the topics of the that's one of our segment of our first segments but in this particular case we now have confirmation at least from interr march eighteenth twenty eighteen that the aim at eight does not have safety features at least at this point it did not know and this poor needle printer melted it burned away while so once the heater comes out if the heaters just floating around it can easily enough come into contact i'm usually the wire that holds the heater is and is in the bundle is so the so the heater is not even go far you're but if you have a if you have like a fan shroud or a fan that's made out of plastic or anything flammable or that the heater comes into contact with then you get a serious fire fire issue and something else could catch fire from that we not a good thing yeah so yeah it it it's not clear exactly how large this fire got it i mean it doesn't look like the whole house burned down but the predator was dramatically destroyed so we do have samples of one where the garage burned down that wall solid doodle if i recall yeah quite a few years ago in there was another one where there was some smoke damage in the house not the house didn't burn down but there was some damage and we have seen videos of like spots where the connector hits the the heat the heat the heater on the bed that can smoke and cause trouble so on these these these three d printers they're not certified for safety by some commission they're they're sold per put together as cheaply as they can be made in china for the lowest money possible most of them in the end the only aspect of them that is certified but is probably the power supply which is a sealed unit and that has nothing to do with the printer in and of itself and that's how they get around allowed rice us although the power supply is the potential source of much of the danger as well so if you have a good power supply at least you don't worry about that a bad power supply can be is dangerous as any of the heaters so yeah so we're going to get into that let's just jump right in what's coming up on the show this week well see we start out talking about the the safety cutoff in the firmware that your printer may or may not have and then it turned out that the race three d has an issue that it the firmware can read it but the issue is the sense of being able to sense it for the firmware wasn't there and race three d addresses that i'm gonna have some discussion of fire prevention systems for your three d printer let's light this fire it's not my intent to encourage folks to go to youtube and watch a youtube channel that's not what i'm trying to do here but there was a youtuber who did a video which i thought was a very very good service this guy's one of the better ones i think his name is thomas lender san ladder and ladder lot river anyway he's one of the better ones and he seems to have technical background but you know with youtubers you can't tell for sure and.
