    The biggest problem i see with all this is that there will be people /Americans/ dumb enough to make your Kickstarter campaign succeed. And please straighten that screw cause i have vertigo from watching it.

    Steady on chaps, we have all seen worse and he has not created a monster that will require a Hiab and skip to get it to the landfill site.
    Some claims were made but we all had to start somewhere.
    Confidence is that feeling you get just before you understand the problem.
    Experience is that thing you get just after you needed it most.
    The test piece may look like a dog chew but it is a beginning and can be improved on.
    You must expect a bit of banter when you teach Granny how to suck eggs, isn't English a colourful language and I think it is time for my meds

    You're right, at least it can be slung into landfill by hand, from a distance, in a dim light, but so far that's the only viable destination.
    I've seen better from plywood, angle section and skateboard bearings, either some innovation or good engineering is required there's nothing new and no innovation so far!

    If you will not be swayed by logic or experience simply pick the idea you
    like best, but ask yourself why you sought advice in the first place and,
    for a simple life, perhaps consider not doing so in future

    Hi Andy,

    The problem you have with posting that sort of information on this site is that regular members have been there, done that, and moved to more capable machines. Or with the advice of experienced members have jumped straight to the more capable machines.

    Here are a selection (hope I've got the names right):

    Some members have started on the chinese machines you see on e-bay and got fed up with them and moved on to making things like the above.

    On the whole these were built in garages with modest levels of tooling. Some were made without access to a lathe or milling machine (routed using templates etc.). Crucially, they were built using the hard won experience of other forum members following constructive design critique.

    They are all very capable machines and much better than something bought for what they cost to make.

    So perhaps a different approach would be to present the target price for the machine you are developing, and ask for suggestions on design improvements from the wealth of experience here.

    Wow! Its nice to see all these machines in one place and what has been achieved by ordinary people with collective help and advise from other forum members.
    It would be nice to put them in a gallery so it could be added to like Wal's beautiful machine and no doubt plenty more.

    Didn't mean to miss any out and Wals is just as deserving along with Boyans epic creations and many others

    I was thinking the same thing about a central collection

    How about a sticky at the top of the diy build logs where each person can send in one photo (ok maybe a handful) plus a link to the build log. No chit chat allowed just a long list of finished builds. That would provide a menu for new users to look through to see if one looks just what they were thinking of. Any thoughts Lee?


    Instead of pointing new users to the build logs (which they have to them wade through) we can point them to the menu of pictures
