New build in Toronto needs advice

Spent the whole last week evaluating drag chains for Z. Printed 3 keystone jack brackets in the process, one of them with an arm to hold the chain.

I printed 36 links plus the ends over two nights (28 of them on one plate in a single overnight run!), certainly better than 2 months trying to get anything from China.

Printed a pen mount and actually got it to draw the crown:

The cheapo 3/4" frame base really isn’t up to the task. Gotta think about a drop table.
