Re: Hotend Failures

I don't know why the barrel would be spinning in the block but just so you know you can just buy new barrels (the snapped part) ... you don't need new hot ends every time. Just drop MG a email and tell them you need just the barrels. -Steve I had no idea! How exactly do you remove/install the new b...

I stuck a Keenovo 250W/24v heater directly to the underside of a MIC6 plate, and I'm using your bracket to strain-relief the corregated tubing. Hopefully it goes well :)
Excellent idea! I'll give the same I try next time I need to tear one apart.

Re: Issues with the X-axis

You can stop using that horrible lithium grease in the carriages. It's supposed to be a very thin machine oil. The lithium was for the old metal-on-metal Z axis. Take the carriage off, clean it out with WD40 and alcohol until it's dry, then lubricate with 1 drop per side of sewing machine oil. Clea...

Do I need to just replace the carriage every 6 months or so? Would it be worth the extra $75 to replace the rail as well? It only acts up around the center thi...

Pre-Rev. E HBP Wire Bracket Upgrade

I've used so many of you guys' amazing mods, figured I'd finally contribute :D I recently picked up an older used Dual M2. The Z motor was unfortunately failing, and I decided while I'm at it I'd just upgrade everything to Rev. E. I was not feeling the exposed HBP wires, especially after reading how...
