Retro designed 3d printer in post-WW2 table saw frame

I LOVE the design of this 3d printer made by Chad Bridgewater! It is a true piece of art! This custom combines modern technology and vintage design as he developed his 3d printer based on a frame of old post-WWII Craftsman table saw.  He re-purposed this two machines for his MFA thesis and he will aslo present old press drill turned int CNC mill.

Here is his NOS 3d printer in old table saw:




Kudos Chad! You Sir are a master craftsman!
