Sources for UMO+ Hotend Isolator Couplers?

Recommended Posts

I live in California, and am finding surprisingly limited sources for these. fbrc8 has them for $18 + $6 shipping, which seems a bit pricey for this one part. The only other alternative I've found is getting one shipped in from Europe or China. The price from China is more what I expected:

but is going to take 2 to 3 weeks. Will let you know if it's any good.

 

If anybody knows a good source for these, please let me know. I presume the UM2 one wouldn't work in a UMO+?

I can provide some more details on the shipping, but we ship everything FedEx so we can make sure to track it, insure, etc. I realize that might sound silly on something as small as a coupler, but we try and make sure people get the part they need right the first time. We used to split our shipping between UPS and the post office. Bad experiences with both brought us to FedEx; the FedEx hub is located here in Memphis, so we've had a really good shipping experience with them.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
