HI RF,

Not yet... I left my job to prepare for the lab. Just one month into the labs,
very long way to go.

    from eBay as peace meal. And it took about 3 months to purchase all of
them.
    If you are the US, it would be cheaper and fast to acquire all of them.
It
    was hard for me do the eBay from Sydney because of un availability of the
    equipment locally.

    Hope this helps.
