Wilson II construction videos

Preamble

I was looking into building the Wilson RepRap. This thread, RepRap “Wilson” (Prusa I3 variant), mentioned that Marty Rice (the author of the Wilson RepRap) has produced some great video tutorials of the build process. I, then, assembled them on to one page. These videos, specifically, are for the Wilson II.

An E3D Lite hotend is used with a MK7 direct extruder.

Wilson II specification

The Wilson II specification can be found on github: mjrice/Wilson2.
