Here I'm going to post which parts are needed, that should be printed before upgrading, and some useful links.

The parts bill of materials (BOM) are on the thingiverse link complete with links to websites. You may be able to find CAN distributors of the items as well.

I've seen a few Ebay sales with all the AL parts, nuts, washers & bolts but I think price wise you'd be better off just using the BOM from thingiverse and sourcing either locally or on the web.

I'm thinking this will be my next build:

It's a remix of the aforementioned AM8 but using different bearings.
Printing on 2 Anet A8 printers. One from SainSmart another purchased used.

Here is the BOM, it doesn't have Canadian links but you may be able to find a local source.
