The Majestic Bellowphone - Hungarian Dance #5

My friend Len Solomon writes: "Here's a clip of the Hungarian Dance #5, performed on the Majestic Bellowphone. The piece was originally scored for 4-hand bellowphone, but I come to find out that I'm the only one who plays this contraption, so I used my version; adapted for 2 hands and a foot."

Prusa Mendel Mods

solid base for reprap prusa mendelI want to show you some of the recent modifications I've made to the RepRap Prusa Mendel 3D printer that I built. This was a pretty typical Prusa Mendel build. I used stainless Steel threaded rod and stainless Steel hardware which increased the cost a little bit but everything else was pretty much standard. I do like the stainless steel threaded rod it seems to have a nice smooth surface finish and everything moves smoothly.
