which servo pins to use on M2 Rambo board?

It appears that the servo pins on the BLtouch should be connected to one of the motor extension jacks on the RAMBO Board. They are MX1, MX2, and MX3. MX1 sounds good, but these connection points each have 6 pins. It looks like 1 and 2 are VCC and Gnd respectively, and if I leave the connector which ...

Re: size of socket on extruder pinch-wheel shaft

Once, more, it is stupid me. The allen wrench was not slipping in the socket, it was the nut on the other end of the shaft which was turning against the hex cavity. Duh.

Bravo MakerGear Support - a warm bed is good

Recent great experience with MakerGear telephone support. M2E bed quit heating. I opened the controller case and wiggled wires as well as measuring voltage when bed was intended to heat - not much. Checked blue fuse, it was ok. then I measured the bed resistance and got 3 ohms which seemed very low....

Re: size of socket on extruder pinch-wheel shaft

Hi Ed, Many years ago, Dad's outfit was presented with a warranty claim in Japan. An engineer was sent over to see what the problem was. When he was shown the equipment, his immediate response was "Not ours." "Why do you say that?" "it is too nice. We don't polish our castings" As it happened it not...

Re: size of socket on extruder pinch-wheel shaft

Ed,
This sounds like broaching. But why does the tiny hole have to be so nice?

For the V4 is it 2.5mm for the bearing shaft screw if that is what you are asking.
I would have thought so. I need to go back and see exactly what I'm doing. could be pilot error.

size of socket on extruder pinch-wheel shaft

Ok Guys,
The extruder pinch-wheel shaft has an allen socket with what looks like a tiny torx socket at the bottom. Now that I know I don't have a hex allen wrench in every possible size, what is it?

Re: Happiness with BlTouch sensor in M2?

good answer airscapes, thanks right now I'm wrestling with Configuration.h files for Marlin 1.1.x (1.1.19) which are reported to run on M2 but have different binary settings (true,false) in the ENDSTOP_INVERTING section. I think I'll go with settings in firmware which came with my M2E except for the...
