i think my luck is making up for my first one

Oh its going to be one of those builds.

i found a temporary PSU any how, it is a better one from a case that i would rather not use for the reprap, though i will say this man is it quiet. i did get a board from sparkfun that helped me out allot, i still want to try to make my own with the power resistors built into it.
with that guy though i had no issues with getting my PSU to turn on, and the voltage seems to be rather stable too, so that was a nice benefit too. it is so quiet too, i may have to change my other one to one like it.

but here is the fun part,the stepper on my x axis seems to not like me or is some how dead all it will do is jitter no matter the driver or way it is plugged in, so i will have to take that stepper off to see if i can't find the issue with it, there all the same steppers and there wired all the same way so i am not sure where the issue is coming from.
this is the culprit. i think i am going to need another stepper again.

also on the x axis both my end stops do not seems to work, so i will have to try to look into that too, i have a few more spares to build and i will try those, i will also have to check to see what the issue is too, i am sure i built them right,

 i also think i am going to have to go to the regular mendel x axis, i think the alignment is out too much and the stepper on the Z axis is working way too hard. the threaded rod on that axis is not parallel with the smooth   rod, i will try to start printing that tomorrow.

well thats most of what i have been up too any how, i will try to post more on the updates i want to try to get it printing by the end of the week i hope.

and i have notices lately that i have been getting allot of new followers from all over the world i just wanted to say thanks.
