I don't always wear a dress shirt and tie to the Makerspace, but when I do, you know I was photoshopped!

In 2013, I built my own opensource 3D Printer. I modified the Prusa i3 design. Controlled by: Arduino Mega + RAMPS 1.5 with Sprinter firmware. The frame is made from 1/4" laser cut steel plates and 3/4" lathe turned rods. The build surface is heated and 10" x 10" x 10". Recently, I made several improvements and upgrades, which include a large screen graphical LCD with SD card reader and a genuine E3D titan extruder and V6 Nozzle. Future upgrades include a BL Touch auto level and dual extruders.
1934 Southbend Lathe Restoration & Projects
Over Christmas break 2017, I machined some small parts for my lab. These are cannula are used to mount soft tissues on our inflation-extension test device. The material is PEEK plastic, it can be auto-claved and machines nicely. Check out my YouTube link above, there is a quick video of the PEEK being machined. The lathe, I am using is a restoration project I did in 2010. It is a 1934 Southbend 9" Workbench 405 lathe. Here's several pictures of the lathe:
