    Indeed impressive, but would like to know the investment in the machines one need to make these...apart of course from the build experience

    Seconded. I have access to the relevant machines at a local makerspace shop, but I've never gone near them for lack of experience.

    What I have access to, which is a 4' X4' CNC router with 12" clearance (can cut almost anything except ferrous metals) and other standard shop tools like a table saw, band saw, hand power tools, hand tools etc, would probably cost ~$35'000.-. Plus of course shop space.
    All of that makes it easier and more efficient to make things, but a good table saw, hand router, perseverance and elbow grease can achieve equal results. They're just tools.

    Finally, the first two contact printed pictures !!

    Still have ways to go with nailing down developing times and contrast grade filters, tray agitation technique etc., but it's quite a rush to see a 100% hand made picture coming out of the fixer bath.

    I apologize for the awful cell phone pictures.
