Updated Laser Files

Is there a source for the most current laser files, particularly those around the extruder, available? The transition to the new forum makes a search through the main site's bar (i.e. between the wiki and forums) much more difficult and I admit I'm being lazy in not wanting to sort through the forum...

Thanks in advance!

    The latest released version is on thingiverse. I don't think the feeder upgrade is online. The rest of the feeder is the same as in the released version.

    Which part are you looking for exactly?

    I am looking to do a bit of editing surrounding my Bertho upgrade and I didn't want to start from scratch... I had a hard time sourcing some of the bearings that were thin enough to fit in the slot without causing interference on the side pieces. I quick fixed it by tossing a set of sandwiched washers in between the plates, but that has some issues with it as well, so it's back to the drawing board a bit as the tinkering continues. So basically, what I'd be looking for would be the feeder upgrade. I pulled the others and separated them, but the changes in the pressure plate are unknown at the moment.

    The bearing in the feeder upgrade is an 3x8x3 bearing. Which seems to be a bit hard to source. Searching for "MR83 bearing" yields some results.

    As for the feeder parts, I'll have to look if they are around somewhere.

    Yeah, I have some bearings that I purchased that for my modified Bertho that are 8x14x4, so they have a larger overall diameter, which is nice, but I have to modify the extruder plates as a result :/ If you do find the file with the newer pressure plate, that would be awesome.
