He's got something very nice going there. It's based on the prusa i3 design which is good.
The prusa i3 is well supported and the vitamins are easily sourced.

I'm printing on a P3Steel which is basicly the same thing but with a lasercut steel frame.

After fiddling around with several different reprap/repstrap designs I've realised that a sturdy frame is key.

Very cool! I could probably use 2 or 3 of those machines. One as a 3D printer, one as a pick and place machine, and one to solder through hole parts. Maybe add another for making food or something. :)
