Z axis bearings - where to get - possible discount

Recommended Posts

I recently had to replace the z-axis bearings on both my 2 and 2+ due to binding issues. They were replaced under warranty by Fbrc8 who was very helpful. They sent the much better Misumi LHFSW12 bearings which I had looked into purchasing myself. The bearings are impossible to find, but at least in the US, you can create an account under your own name on Misumi site and the price isn't bad.

A day or so after I created an account they sent me a 30% off link - don't know if that's standard, but if you create an account wait a bit before placing an order.

I got the discount code too, but I wasn't sure if that was after my first order or after I registered for the Misumi site. Anyway, I paid full price, but I'm happy with the parts.

Regarding getting Misumi replacements under warranty from fbrc8, I had no idea they would do that! I would have tried that had I known. I recently contacted them to replace my UltiController board and they responded quickly.

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • 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.
