What is a RepRap Union?
RepRap Union is an offshoot of the Loaner Program, but a little more restricted. This program was started by SpaceXULA after finding out that 1/2 of the sets he had printed and sold had not been assembled, or much less replicating. RepRap bank is concerned with speeding replication.
How is a RepRap Bank different than the Loaner Program, or someone selling parts on Ebay?
The RepRap Union has terms on who gets the parts, and "deposit" to get the parts. Terms are set to spur Replication.
