Customer Built Machine – Clone 4D kit
The Clone 4D pictured below was built by Ted from Australia using the Clone 4D kit. Ted learnt a lot of new skills whilst building his 4D and the results are a credit to his persistence, patience, and skill. Well done Ted!
Ted said in a recent email…
“I imagine you may be pleased, and perhaps even relieved, to know that my Clone 4d is built. Please see attached. I know you have seen many photos, and many in the flesh as it were, but I am particularly proud of mine! I have not done much beyond a bit of polishing here and there – I think it looks beautiful as it is. I want to thank you very much, for your brilliant invention, fantastically helpful manual, and your willingness to provide personalised advice when I needed it. I hope you continue to have great success with the Clone enterprise”.
