I've started down the road to building a RepRap MendelMax. I ordered the printed parts and frame members from LulzBot last week, they arrived on Thursday. Monday I ordered a (x3) mess of hardware from (x2) Amazon because the local hardware store only (x2) sells metric one piece at a time. The majority of it will arrive tomorrow, but the bearings and smooth rod will be a bit longer.
That should give me enough parts to start building tomorrow, assuming I can clean off a space on my desk.
