Mechanical kit ordered!

I sat down and soldered all six opto-endstop boards, in the style of an assembly line. They're pretty small and only have a few components. All I need to do to finish them is add the wire connectors.

I've built over half of the electronics kits and it's confirmed my interest in building and evolving a RepRap. So, I decided to take the plunge and order the full mechanical kit from bitsfrombytes. They sell laser-cut versions of the rep-rapable parts if you have access to the steel feedstock and want to start from scratch, but the best solution for me is to get the full kit. It contains all the motors, rods, connectors and laser-cut parts to build a reprap.

I'll post a review of the kit once it arrives....
