At the end of last year i started collecting information about needed system components like the vibration isolation, the tunneling current amplifier, the z-height controller, the coarse approach mechanism and so on

Here’s a video of his DIY vibration isolation system:

The Gathering for Open Science Hardware (GOSH) is new annual conference for those building and using Open Source Hardware (OSHW)  for scientific research:

The GOSH movement seeks to reduce barriers between diverse creators and users of scientific tools to support the pursuit and growth of knowledge.

GOSH 2016 took place at CERN last March with an excellent keynote by Javier Serrano:
