Nice build, but can i advise you to make a few small metal plates to support the screws from the hinges and gassprings? Your cover will live much longer then..

Hi all,
just wanted to let you know that this project is officially finished, and I just launched a dedicated LAYZOR website.

For those that don't know, the LAYZOR is a complete rebuild of a K40, but I recommend you read the full story on my blogpost:
and the website itself:

Hi all,

I am currently working on a conversion from the K40 to an actual useful machine. Key here is minimal investment.

I've worked on the design for a month or so, and now that the parts are coming in, I am planning to log the build here.

People have told me it looks a lot like the 2.0x (or whatever it is called ;-) ). Actually that is how I found this site. In the mean time I've looked at the cad file and I don't really think there's that much in common other than the overall look. Which is not surprising since it looks pretty generic. Anyway I just wanted to say it is a 100% new design, not really based off anything, except some google images for inspiration.

I also have a blog in which I write full articles, but I guess I'll post some more ongoing pictures here as I am building it.

There are already 3 blog posts about it, which you can find here:

Finished design render:

Currently I am building the frame.
