I just got my "prototype" CNC PSOne kit today in the mail that Ben mentioned that he was making a couple of weeks ago for a test production run.

I must commend Ben for the top-quality work - it is friggin' awesome !!!

I also have to say to everyone that if you are thinking of buying one his kits - think no more! Just do it. You will be very glad that you did - it is money well spent. I plan on buying more (definitely SNES and NES hand-built kits so I can use my PSOne screens) in the future. Most of us can follow along with the instructions in the book and wire everything up, but actually having a beautiful case to put it in is something different. This is going to be great - I can't wait to get started! Once I get started I will take a bunch of progress pictures and post them as many others have done a nice job of setting that example.

Thanks again, Ben. To borrow a quote from a compliment that was paid to me once, "Spankingly impressive piece of work!"

What the heck?

Ben, you better put a robots.txt file to stop web crawlers (see Atack of the Web Crawlers at benheck.com thread).
