  1. Excellent machining, but a bit too long...

    Posted by Brandon Fesser on 28th Feb 2015

    These are high quality precision shaft segments, with nicely machined and chamfered ends; however, I've found them to be a bit too long for use in any of the LulzBot TAZ guidler models without modification. The TAZ 4 came with a shaft 18.5mm in length. These 20mm shafts are a forced fit (bench vise or arbor press required), and bow-out the sides of the printed idler, warping and weakening the whole assembly. The two solutions to this are to either grind the shaft down by at least 0.5mm or re-mesh the idler model to accommodate the 20mm shaft—at the expense of rigidity and overall strength. Personally, I don't have a lathe, so I'll be re-modeling my idlers...

    It would be nice to see an 18.5mm version of this product, which would better suit most Wade's idler assemblies and derivatives. This really deserves a 5 star rating, but I have to give it 4 stars for the above stated reason.

    ***UltiBots added*** These Misumi precision shafts are FIVE STAR quality. Make sure when ordering you read the specifications that indicate that they are 20mm. They are designed for the Greg's Wade Reloaded Extruder.
