Tooled the first heatsink. Bought some new big metal files the other day which came in really handy. I really like working with metals, especially copper. The heatsink plaster will take at least half a day to fully cure, some other day the second one will follow. .
The RAMPS 1.4 LCD adapter would be in the way of the heat pipe, however as the LCD takes up valuable CPU cycles on this prehistoric chip and I blew my old one, it's not a problem. Apart from that, bending the heatpipe to avoid the LCD adapter in the prescribed minimum radius to uphold sufficient efficiency, meant a very problematic heat transfer contact mounting and tooling of the heatsink, and if done improperly would impede the heat transfer of the pipe itself.
