Thank You

Hi all, only reviving this old thread in case some people were following it.

Anyway, I have an  old Roland DXY-1200 A3 size flat bed pen plotter which I need to get rid of. (downsizing the house).

1200 is the same as this 1100 (there was also a 1300 I think) they only differ by the amount of buffer  memory, which was important back when driving these things from a single tasking dos computer and you wanted to download the plot and then use the computer to keep working on something else.

I had planned to do the same thing mentioned here about plotting onto copper clad board with a marker pen as an etch resist. I never got around to it.

It could also make a good xy bed for a quick conversion to low power laser engraver.

Happy to let it go for a nominal amount (~$20 Australian) if someone is prepared to pick it up. (I'm at Berowra Heights in the north of Sydney)

That is incredibly cool!

Never mind new pens, stick a Dremmel in there and engrave your own boards!

Not a hope - nowhere near enough rigidity
