Re: problem with first layers

One of my close buddies (brother from another mother) turned me on to Wolfbite - glass bed adhesion solution, and I have never been sorry for using it.

After much design and re-design I am near finished with my Rambo board and accessories enclosure. Using anothers initial design I reworked all things to fit and function.
