The noise in the background is the lasercutter.  You can faintly hear the motor noise if you know what to listen for.

TODO:
Find, test, fix and mount opto endstops.
Talk to Dieter about right screw for extruder.
Or go to RepRapSource.de/RepRap-Fab.org and buy a full extruder for ~€75 (without motor).
Mount extruder and go! :)
