Lost a grub screw from a pulley

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I've managed to lose the grub screw from one of the pulleys on the the non-driven rod for my Y axis.

I've no idea when it came out and only noticed because during a semi-regular check of the machine that the pulley was able to move along the rod.

Has anyone else sourced one of these in the past and if so then do you know the size & thread details, or is the quicker solution to just get a replacement pulley?

Cheers,

James.

My ultimaker is currently running perfectly WITHOUT four of the grub screws.

I removed grub screws from the pulleys on the driven axle of both x and y axes. I think this allows the belt tension to be more even around the whole belt, as well as making the whole axis drive less overconstrained.

That said I could send you a grub screw :p

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
