Not sure mine qualifies as I did not even technically start with the standard machine!** :mrgreen: But feel free to use pictures from my build log if you like.
Changes from the original listed in the first post.

**not exactly true - looked at the V1 machine in CAD and started designing from there ;)

That is a nice looking machine IC.

I need to get a good photo of mine. I'll have to hang a sheet behind it to hide my messy basement.

Ill post some of mine soon. Almost finished with the tool plate I made for it. 3/8 6061t6 plate with m6 threaded holes to replace the stock mdf board. Gives the machine some weight and more accurate fixturing.

I think the only parts left that are still stock are the bolts and the electronics, which I will be switching out for nema 23's/a china controller/ and 15mm wide gt2 belting any day now. It looks a little naked without its dust skirt velcroed on, but it usually wears it...

Here are a couple photos of mine. The images are linked to higher rez versions.

Mine lives in my messy basement, so it's difficult to get a good photo.

You all sit on a throne of lies! There is no finished machine. It's never done. There's always one more tweak, one more upgrade, a new spindle to try, another axis, a new board. Three dimensional space and we need twenty five motors to eventually get to one point in it. I feel like Charlie Brown when Lucy pulls the football away again and again. :lol:

Here's my "finished" machine in place. Since I've "finished" it, I changed the spindle to a Foredom SR and made a custom spindle mount out of some HDPE I had laying around. I've added limit switches. I've started building an enclosure / control surface with 4 pin connectors and I've done away with the big keyboard.
