I intend to add to this post with issues I have as I build, fixes for those issues, and whatever else happens throughout the process, so I'll get to it!
So far I've checked through my kit to make sure I've got everything, and found that I didn't get the dual extruder parts that I ordered. I wasn't exactly sure what all was missing since my kit didn't contain a checklist, but after watching the unboxing video that Beowulf posted I saw that he had an unlabeled package in his kit that contained all or most of the dual extruder parts, and that's what I am missing! I've emailed Folger Tech about the missing parts and expect they'll get back with me soon. I've also removed the protective film off of an sanded all edges of the routered parts so I don't have to keep stopping to clean parts up. I still have the smaller parts in the ziplock to do, but I'll get to those soon.
I'm currently stuck on step.1 with a hardware discrepancy that I've detailed below:
Anyone else get SHCS (socket head cap screw) hardware in place of the Button head screws for the rod holders? The head on the M4x20 SHCS has an even smaller diameter than the button head screws which makes it to where you really have to use a washer, but the screw isn't going to be long enough to engage the Nylon in the Nyloc nut with the washer requirement (also no washers included). Just curious if anyone else is working around this some other way.
