Extrusion Upgrade — reattaching the threaded standoffs to the PCB?

Recommended Posts

Installing the Extrusion Upgrade on my UM2 this morning. Everything went well until I removed the four screws holding the PCB in place. I supported in in place until the four screws were removed, but when I gently pulled it away, the four black plastic spacer fell away (expected) as did the four threaded metal standoffs that were attached to the PCB itself (definitely not expected). Continued the installation, but now I am stuck since the threaded standoff are no longer attached to the PCB.


With soldering being the last resort, any ideas how to safely reattach the threaded standoffs to the PCB? Epoxy, J-B Weld, ???


Guess I could replace the screws with longer ones and fasten them (through the now-empty standoff holes) from the back with nylon nuts.


Any ideas, suggestions?
