Final Crucible Machining

Today was a big day for the 3D printer! The machining for our lovely new crucible is now complete.

Shown here is a test fitting of the nozzle coil at last!

Not to fear; it will get pulled to spec and properly spaced before we will it with 3000F refractory. In fact, that will be the next entry as far as the crucible goes at least.

Then – we will be all set for the first firing! Whoooo-hoo!
