Ok, last update for a while since I don't want to bore everyone.

Got a lot done today:

- Heated base plate installed and working.  Had to work out a way to use a
relay to drive it, the MOSFET was overheating even with an additional heat
sink.  My father was the relay master on this one.

- Installed the MakerBot LED Light kits on an external switch

- Was able to print raftless on the heated base plate -- 96mm x 85mm !
