Creality 3D Printer Aluminium Extruder kit 10 out of 10
1 wanted
The one part of my 3D printer that has broken - still works but is awkward, would like to replace the broken plastic with the sturdier metal version.
Check prices: Including the upgraded PTFE Bowden Tube is a bonus, but honestly the main point is the Aluminium (Or Aluminum [sigh]) extruder.

RTL-SDR Software Defined Radio with 2x Telescopic Antennas 10 out of 10
1 wanted
Tune ALL SORTS of stuff from 500 kHz to 1.7 GHz, basically slurps up a huge chunk of the radio spectrum, straight into a laptop / pi / etc for decoding in software, at which point you can decode a whole bunch of interesting signals from the airwaves, AM/FM/TV but also all kinds of interesting digital things, aircraft, weather stations, ships, and loads of hamradio stuff.

Similar one is currently receiving my Weather Station and noseynick.net airplane tracking, but has to alternate between them, caudsing interruptions to the airplane tracking. Would be much neater if I could be receiving more than one thing at once.

Check Prices: Sometimes the SDR-Dongle and Antennas are cheaper in the bundle, sometimes separately.

5 quid, for a teeny but fully-functional Linux computer. They are LITERALLY giving away computers on the covers of magazines now :-O
