2x4 lumber for legs and support structure, 3/4" chipboard top with 1/4 plywood or MDF on top of that for a more smooth surface. Anchor it into the floor or wall and it won't go anywhere. Having the MDF on top of chipboard would let you use it as a spoil board and swap it when it gets chewed up.

A few of the original machines had this problem as well. A bit of electrical or plumbers tape around the top will make it tight.
I don't know exactly how copiers work, but this appears to be a step up transformer, probably for the bulb . Input is 24V, outputs are in the kV range. You don't want to hook that up to your stepper driver :) Given that the unit takes 24V input, there is probably another part somewhere in the copier...

I am not advocating this in any way, but if you think the dry solder joint is on the motherboard, and you aren't particularly attached to it, you could try baking it (as in putting it in an oven :)). I had a 8800 gtx card that I did this with several times before it finally died for good. It'd be a ...
if you are in the market for a 3d printer how could you choose that over this? Some reasons not to go with (Form1) SL over FDM: The build platform is smaller than FDM machines The printer itself is more expensive than (similarly sized) FDM printers The resin is quite expensive (they quote $149 per ...

That Z axis setup looks familiar It's interesting that he uses rods and pillow block bearings instead of Makerslide for the X and Y axes. Looking at the BOM that seems to be where a lot of the extra expense is.

I know that USB->Parallel adapters are almost always rubbish, but I'm not certain why you need a PC with the port on the motherboard? Monoprice has PCI cards with either single or double parallel ports for < $10 . If you already have a desktop computer you could use, that's lacking a port, you could...
I doubt anything on the stepper shield would stop you, as you said it has 4 axes. However grbl only supports 3 axes as of now, and I think most 3D printing firmware requires the mega, so you might not be able to use the uno.

Interesting idea of using a GitHub to host 3D printing files with a template to make the main page look nice, could use a similar one for milling http://garyhodgson.com/reprap/2012/09/g ... -projects/ (recently featured on HaD)
