Hi Fellow reprappers,

I'm Derek, and I'm helping Leo Dearden, who founded RepRap Kit a couple of years ago. Leo is committed to providing great value for money and excellent customer service. He's made a number of enhancements to the Mendel Prusa design, and has a policy of being completely Open Source with all his hardware and software developments.

Up until now, he has been offering mechanical kits, component parts (bearings, stepper motors, stepper drivers, etc), and plastic feedstock. The feedback we've had from customers has been generally excellent.

He's now offering complete Kits for the enhanced Mendel Prusa on 28 days delivery, with a 20% Early Bird discount for the first 10 orders at RepRapKit.com

Anyone who has dealt with RepRapKit.com, please feel free to post your comments here.

I think this belongs to the forums like "RepRap Marketplace and Job Shop". If you start describing enhancements and asking for feedback on these enhancements it could remain a forum. "He's made a number of enhancements" certainly is not enough.

I hate spam and this is (almost) is....

This thread is intended as a place for customers to post their experiences with RepRap Kit, and I'm sorry if we didn't give that enough emphasis in the OP.

It's here because that's where many of the other supplier review threads are (taken from reprap.org: http://forums.reprap.org/read.php?1,60035,98512#msg-98512/, http://forums.reprap.org/read.php?1,102156/, http://forums.reprap.org/read.php?1,97338)

Best wishes,

It would be nice if reviews could only come from established members of the community, this seems more than suspect. Apologies if somehow it is not.

Reviews come from whichever of our customers feel like writing something :-)

It would be great to have reviews from established members of the community. However, the community is growing exponentially and most buyers of RepRap kits are just starting out, so most of our potential reviewers don't have much history. Everyone with something to say, good or bad, is most welcome.

Obviously, you're concerned about bogus feedback. That's fair enough. I know that the messages above are genuine, but I realise that may not be enough for you :-). What arrangement would you like to see? What can I actually do that would re-assure you?

BTW, Tveten is from Norway, and I give him respect for English that is much better than my Norwegian.
