Description

This feeder designs combines the two existing feeder designs from |Robert| and Geeks:

- https://www.youmagine.com/designs/alternative-um2-feeder-version-two
- https://www.youmagine.com/designs/extruder-um2-version-2

- Body and latch by |Robert|
- Filament guide and knurled wheel for tension setting by Geeks


This design erases the need for additional filament guides for Roberts Feeder and allows an easy adjustment of the spring tension without allen key.

Additional assembly:

- assemble the yoke at the body arm with the M3x35 screw and mount the knurled wheel with the M3 nut behind the spring with the washers

- assemble the two wheels with 2x M3x10 screws

Thank you so much for this.

Where does the feeder knurl go?

Also I believe the list above should be updated to say 2 UM2 Feeder wheels right?

Does anyone know if there are specs available to order the bearing? I would like to retain my original feeder as is in addition to this one.

Thanks,

Since we use the new MK8 Drive Gear it works almost perfect. See:
