It is quite handy to sort your parts into a parts bin or something similar - so that you have easy access and they don't get knocked off the table or lost. Assembly photos are available on the MakerGear Flickr site. Some of the photos have additional information in the photo description. Note: the kit contains extra parts so unless you loose some pieces in the carpet you will not use all of the supplied parts.
