I really wonder how much time did it take you to make one... Plus the tools and parts?
 
The green one took me about a year after work. I built a similarly sized machine several months ago in about a month. Lesson learned?, use as much off the shelf parts as possible and eBay isn't necessarily better.
 
I was looking online for different parts and kits and the pricing just for the parts was pretty high. I did some calculations and it comes out that it will be less expensive to buy already build high-quality machine from China... I say that keeping in mind that I need a machine to earn money, not just for fun-build.
