    Are all hobbed bolts the same? Would you recommend sourcing through you all, or is there a reputable seller to go with? Sorry if this is a total noob question.

    @zach We recommend sourcing this through us, as it will make sure your extruder is calibrated correctly (steps/mm), although you can search amazon or ebay to get a replacement.

    If you get a replacement through a different channel, make sure it is a 8mm hobbed bolt, and once you install, check your steps/mm and adjust them if need be. Here is a great video to explain calibration.

    Thanks! Wasn't seeing a hobbed bolt listed on the store, so just wanted to check that it should be done through you folks.

    Question regarding that sealed bearing.  Where can I get a replacement for it or what is the part number?  Do not have access right now to mine otherwise I would pull it out.

     

    Thanks!

    Pretty sure they are your standard 608 bearings.
