I need a new limit switch, but which to buy?

Recommended Posts

I need to replace a broken limit switch, but I am at a loss as to which one to purchase and from where.

After spending almost all of yesterday scouring the internet, I believe this is the correct switch. Can anyone confirm if it is?

If this is the correct switch, can anyone recommend a seller? Shipping from "Robot Shop" is over five times the cost of just one switch.

Thanks for the welcome!

I have an Ultimaker Original, and my first thought was to order the limit switches pack from the Ultimaker store, but the cost with shipping is over $30 US.

If I could find a limit switch somewhere closer I'd be a happy man, since I could then put the savings on shipping towards buying more filament.

Thanks for replying!

Also, I am 99% positive this is the switch used in the Ultimaker 1.

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
