Hello guy`s,

i`m looking for a favorable used Ultimaker 2 knurled wheel.

    It should only be a few Euros

     

    The price including 19% VAT has indeed two digits in Germany and if you add some shipping charge the first digit is probably not a "1"... :O

    Depending on how urgently such a part is needed, it's still better than waiting for weeks for a cheaper part to arrive from China.

    @chrii: In case you are using a Robert feeder, you may also want to consider replacing the knurled UM part by an MK7.

    thanks for your answers.

    indeed i`m using a Roberts Feeder .

    i`m not in hurry, but i also don`t want to order in china when possible.

    i made a short-bowden mod (20cm) on my UM2 as a preparation to upgrade it to dual extrusion. (the same setup mirrored)

    the Problem is i can`t remove the wheel from my original stepper driver, its mounted too tight, therefor i just want to use the same wheel on the second extruder.

    As i`m also switching to 1.75mm filament the same time there should not be a problem with the strengh of the stepper anyways.

    Just realized I misunderstood and I was under the impression you were talking about a different part all the time, I thought you were asking for the rotating knob for some reason.. @dim3nsioneer's estimation is a bit cryptic but probably more accurate.

    Please be aware that the Ultimaker knurled wheel probably isn't the best solution for 1.75mm Filament!

    Hy @cjs, can you explain a little bit more in detail why ?

    I guess that's because the distance from the ball bearing to the knurled wheel is too big for the thinner filament. However I tested it with my UM2+ once and it worked fine. You could increase the feeder pressure with the lever on the side.
