  1. Trump commenting on a potential China trade deal
  2. Sorry to be blunt but if you are currently in financial trouble and unable to pay bills is a precious metals forum the place to be? If you want some good financial advice it's well worth dropping a post here: https://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/ There are threads on debt advice, IVA's, bankruptcy etc.
  3. I don't really view PM's as being a transaction medium in the event of a currency collapse. I view it is as a method to retain your wealth after a currency collapse until the replacement is introduced.
  4. more than if you just held the same value in cash
  5. people often forget about exit strategy and the timescales involved in cashing out numismatic and semi numismatic coins in bulk. nothing wrong with having a few choice pieces to keep things interesting and everyone is different but for me personally I prefer to hold the bulk in straight bullion silver/gold
  6. As a follow up to "how to p*ss off the wife" we now have "how to please the wife" Purchased a Dyson hair dryer for her last year and this year they have released a special edition with a free stand for the hair dryer and accessories. A quick half hour on tinkercad and clone was created then printed
  7. apparently funding circle liquidity is now a nightmare. defaults are up and selling loans on is now taking a very long time so much so they have changed their T&C's and are selling on part loans
  8. if you sell now do you have the will power not to dip into the funds during xmas then requiring more gold to be sold to make up for the shortfall?
  9. I think when it comes to coins there is always more to learn and no one knows it all, thats where a community like this comes in handy as if you dont know someone else here likely will.
  10. Black Friday sale prices: https://creality3d.aliexpress.com/store/group/Ender-3-Ender-3-Pro/2846085_516696483.html?spm=a2g0o.detail.0.0.4951707aB6T1WH Ender 3 - £132 : Great printer, prints well out of the box with a good support community and plenty of upgrade options should you chose to do so. Ender 3 Pro - £156 : Same printer as above but has a stronger, branded PSU and a wider Y axis for more stability. Sofware is all free, I use Cura for slicing, tinkercad for modelling. lots of free downloadable files on thingiverse. Filament from £10kg for basic PLA to £40kg for fancy carbon fibre/metal/wood infill speciality filaments.
  11. All the above coins are just bullion not numismatic, they carry a slightly higher premium but they can be picked up not too far over spot.
  12. thats why you upgrade to a silent mainboard with tmc2208 or better drivers Upgraded to the creality silent board but then fitted an SKR mini E3 board about 2 weeks ago - totally silent, tmc2209 drivers +32 bit cpu. Only about £22 : https://www.aliexpress.com/item/33042554065.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.97184c4detSDhH Also upgraded the psu to an 80mm noctua so only noise left is the little 40mm hotend fan.
  13. Only about £6 worth of silk silver filament for the arm. the glass vase was about £15, around £5 for the LED lights and a few screws.
  14. Just a cheapy Creality Ender 3 Pro, have done some performance tweaking and modifying but prints just fine out the box. https://creality3d.aliexpress.com/store/group/Ender-3-Ender-3-Pro/2846085_516696483.html?spm=a2g1y.12024536.pcShopHead_6431160.1_0_0
