I've wanted to get an extruder for my classroom, for quite a while. Unfortunately, I can never really fit it in the budget, especially as my district is really focusing on cutting back. So even though, I may be able to put in the purchase order, and even have it approved, I really don't want to draw attention to myself, as a department that spends money on "Big" purchases.
I have two hand extruders, but they work OK at best.
A while back, Pres linked me to this video:
I think it's an absolute great idea, and am seriously considering building one. The issue I will have, is mounting. Obviously, I can't dig a hole in my classroom, to place a wooden post. Wall mounting is essentially out of the question as I don't much wall space, and that I have, would not be preferable.
I'm either thinking table mount, or to anchor a post in a bucket of concrete, then attach it to the post, like he did in the video. If I go for the table mount option, what would be a good bracket set up?
