Cannot install Olsson Block - can't remove set screw

Posted · Cannot install Olsson Block - can't remove set screw

I can't remove the set screw in the hot-end to remove the thermistor and heater cartridge.

Only the smallest of the 3 hex-drivers that where included with the UM2 fits but it seems to be slightly too small and doesn't catch.

...either that or the screw is alreasy stripped. (This is the first time I'm laying hands on that screw.)

What size is it supposed to be? T4?

    Fixed it. I was able to borrow some off-size micro-torx set and remove the bolt.

    The heater-cartridge slipped out more or less easily.

    ...the thermistor didn't. :(

    Where to get a new thermistor and how to install it?

    I have one of these expensive UM2 hotend-sets but it doesn't include a thermistor. Only the mechanical parts.

    is absolutely right. You need a spare PT100B. When I got my UM2extended (after reselling my former UM2) there was no spare PT100B included.

    This is a MUCH better instruction then the one given on the Ultimaker website. (That I was using since I purchased the upgrade there and expected it to work.)

    The Ultimaker Store has that 1eur  PT100B sensor here

    https://ultimaker.com/en/products/spare-parts

    but it's 37,50eur + VAT = 45eur + shipping =   €48,90

    By experience the UM store ships via Fexed B2B carrier. So It's something like 22+eur and I cannot receive it because I'm not a business with an office open every day Mo-Fr 8-16:00.

    The shop doesn't seem to work with the network here. After login nothing happens.

    3dSolex links to http://www.goodtube.uk/ for Europe. They don't list anything else but the Olsson Block.

    http://www.imakr.com/eu/en/order is 55eur including shipping with no mention what shipping company they use.

    ...I just ordered it to my hotel room in Hamburg directly from Ultimaker.

    There was no way to leave a comment during the checkout process to say,

    that it MUST arrive before the congress is over (2015-12-30) simply because I'm

    no longer in that hotel afterwards and the printer is needed DURING the congress.

    Hi Marcus, I would get it from 3dsolex, also do you know what the wattage of the heater element?, it's worth upgrading to the 35W heater at the same time if you are running on a 25W or less.

    How to check?

    There are no markings.

    What shipping company does 3dsolex use and where to find the PT100B in their European store?

    If they use a regular parcel service instead of a courier and Ultimaker fails to deliver in time, I may need to cancel my order with Ultimaker and order somewhere else anyway.

    I got a PT100B from Ultiarjan and it works fine.

    I had to sand it down slightly because it's a 3.01mm capsule for a 2.99mm hole.

    You got another one? Cause I'm not Ultiarjan... But nevermind, it was obvious that you had tons of things spinning in your head;) Glad that I could help!

    Sorry, I was in a hurry and just looking at the second to last user name in the thread without reading the content.

    I'm currently experimenting with the nGen filament.

    Hi,

    I have exactly the same problem with the set screw jammed, could you please tell me where I can find this off-size micro-torx set because the allen key provided by UltiMaker did not work and it it turns in place as its size is small than that needed.
