I haven’t seen this guy, Gavilan Steinman’s, work before. I like the clear, straightforward way that he explains how he used his Darwin RepRap machine to fabricate a better extruder head for it, and then, used the improved Darwin to fabricate a Mendel (the next-gen RepRap model).

Looking forward to seeing what else Gavilan does. There are more details on his RepRap builds on his blog (below).
