Feeder Tension Hex Key?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Feeder Tension Hex Key?

I take it you are using the UM2 origional feeder?

An Allen key is measured across the flats, AF. If you can buy yourself a small screwdriver set with small hex pieces that are 4mmAF there will be a range of bits for straight, Cross Head and Hex bits that will cover all the bits on the UM2.

Having said all that, as soon as you can check out iRoberts feeder on YouMagine. https://www.youmagine.com/designs/alternative-um2-feeder-version-two I would recommend printing this off and changing over to it, it's a big improvement, I have also made a few pieces to enhance this mod, search for izzy on YouMagine for some bits.

    Thanks Izzy!

    I have been meaning to print that out and change the old feeder but never got the time, thanks for the advice.
