Brass Extruder gear for UM2+ Yay or Nay?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Brass Extruder gear for UM2+ Yay or Nay?

I saw a Chinese online store selling the small gear in the UM2+ extruder made out of brass.

I was wondering if anyone with mechanical knowledge could see actual benefit of replacing the small plastic gear with one made in brass?

To me it seems like it would just wear out the big gear faster, but on the other hand perhaps it would be more benefitial to increase the lifetime and durability of the small gear.

Yay/nay?
