It seems that the laptop I used to run the Shapeoko and K40 Laser Cutter and Engraver bit it the other day. It use to run the ChiliPeppr Serial-Port-JSON-Server, but I decided to move that over to an old Raspberry Pi I have laying around unused. The problem is that Pi hasn’t been maintained, and the updates to the OS are taking forever.
I mounted the Raspberry Pi on the Shapeoko table, next to the TinyG.
I managed to finally get the Pi updated and running. A scan of the local subnet found the Serial Port JSON Server on the Raspberry Pi and the USB port I connected the Raspberry Pi to the TinyG CNC Controller.
I finished my USB Battery Storage Tray. This should clean up the clutter in my office. Currently the battery are scattered about the desktop while charging. This should take up less room and make it easier to keep track of my batteries.

I finally was able to spend some time at the shop, using the X-Carve to create a battery pack storage tray for all my USB battery packs.

I also fired up the Stacker 3D Printer to print a lid for the Ender 3 Universal Rear Electronics Enclosure.

A couple of days ago, I finished making another Solar Charging Station.
