Issue with rods


Recommended Posts

Posted · Issue with rods

Hi everyone,


Wonder if you can help with this issue, on a recent print when cleaning up I found this screw:




On close inspection, I see it is from the top left hand side rods.




Looks like both are missing, but I can only see one and might explain why one side of the prints are no longer smooth.


Where can I get a couple of spares or these? I don't even know what to call these or what size!


Many thanks 🙂

    grub screws, and yea.. those are sorta important 😅

    Shouldnt need to replace them with new ones.. just reinstall those ones. 
    Pointy side goes in.. other side should fit your hex driver. 

    They can come loose over time in some cases.. this is why general maintenance guides tells you to check these to make sure they are secure.
