Last year I posted this super cool wire-bending CNC.

D.I.Wire Bender is a rapid prototype machine that bends metal wire to produce 2D and 3D shapes, pushing the limits of what can be produced in different materials, forms, and methods, anywhere from a model shop to your home.

The creators have published an Instructable showing how to build your own. It’s open source! More resources can be found on Google Code. [via EMSL]

Sorry for the hijack; I couldn’t find anywhere else to submit this suggestion.
