Re: Lines in print. Stepper resolution problem?

I did get it for free, fortunately. When I got it it had been hacked on a bit but nothing had really been changed, just a few things broken.

I'm able to order it from Amazon and get it locally from Microcenter within the US...I wouldn't be surprised if you could get it or ...
