I've converted all my M2s to rigid bed mounts thanks to MIC6 sheets + autolevel, so I have a TON of bed springs laying around. I'm going to try using those for tension.

I realize that this question is old (been moving), but Torx drivers are excellent for removing stripped Allen fasteners. Choose a size that's a hair too big, pound it in and turn, comes right out. Hth, c

Has anyone heard if the fine tooth drive gear was implemented? I am still using mine and still working fine.

Anyone else still using this?

I pulled mine, but I'm keeping it as it might be a better option if I ever try running a flexible filament.

@slipshine - the finer tooth gear is what we've been using in production for several months now.
