    Thank you,







    Not with this one. Built my own from an adapter from woodcraft-




    Then added a Thein baffle from this idea-

    So what is bumble bee butter?

    :lol: It was just a made up name for a mixture of beeswax and mineral oil (4:1 oil/wax). Heated in the microwave until the wax melts. Stir, let cool and use it as a finish or to lub screws or to wax tools.


    As far as the pen press, I stole the idea from a YouTube video and made some adaptations. In the video the press is around 4:58 minutes. I can take more pix and measurement if you want.

    If you are talking about a printer

    I think I understand. You draw the picture on graph paper then photograph it. After that you transfer the images from the camera card to the computer. Resize it to your needs with Rapid Resizer and then print it.


    I used to use an inkjet printer but rarely printed in color. Often times the cartridges dried up before they ran out of ink. Switched to a monochrome laser printer. The cartridge is about the same costs as the full set of ink cartridges but it lasts much, much longer.

  4. Jess,

    You are absolutely correct about Inkscape being different. Rapid Resizer does one thing and does it extremely well. 


    I only mentioned Inkscape because it is a free open source program. If someone wanted to enlarge a picture but didn't want to buy Rapid Resizer, they could use Inkscape for that purpose. I guess that this would be something akin to using a nuclear reactor to boil an egg :D
