Here are a few pictures of my current hardware projects
Here is the exploded extruder from my Classic Mendel. I believe that the connection between the PTFE and the printed parts failed, allowing the melted plastic to leak out and force the whole nozzle crooked. I am hoping for better luck with my new dual extruders from QU-BD but time will tell. On the upside, I have the printed parts for 3 extruders and could easily just buy hot ends and assemble them all if needed.
This is the gantry for my DIYLILCNC. There are still a lot of parts to go on it but the assembly seems to be fairly straightforward. It is mostly just a matter of finding the time.
Here is the current Prusa Mendel under construction. It has been much easier to build. the belt clamps for the Y axis don't match the holes on my sheet piece but that is what I get for buying from multiple different suppliers. I will just make a couple by hand from some scrap aluminum. Also, I bought a set of cables but they turned out to have female connectors on both ends and I can't seem to find a male connector locally so I will have to use a small piece of perf board and some pins. Still, not a big deal compared to my issues with the last machine.
