Modified version of Takei Naodar's feeder, which was a modified version of iRoberti"s feeder.
-adjusted tension settings, zero tension is now possible up to full spring max tension.
-revised outer casing at rear for 2 screws instead of 3, as well as made it symmetrical.
-adjusted some tolerances
-2 designs, one with stock tension screw and nut, another with socket cap screw and square nut.
Step-by-step instructions included
While not a quick change feeder, this is a workhorse feeder. It is simple and just keeps working, period. It will feed flexible filaments, no problem. It has a huge range of tension adjustments for a wide range of filament diameters and types.
Lots of credit to those guys for a great starting point in a reliable feeder design.
