Re: Rostock MAX purchase poll

I originally saw one on CraigsList and was thinking of buying it. Then I saw you could by them as a kit and that seemed like a better idea. I want to know as much as I can about my printer, so building it just made sense. Then there was the design - I don't know why but the Delta is just cooler than...

It was about a 20 hour build, counting a few silly mistakes that I had to correct. 1) I installed the cheapskates with t...
