I've been considering this one by Gregwar.

But your dragnet really appeals to me ...

I'll wait for it.

As a poor speller myself (native English speaker so I have no excuse), it's unfortunate that misspellings in a presentation give the impression of lack of knowledge, intelligence and/or education when that impression can be quite incorrect. In my case, the US education system wasn't the best when I was in school. It's better now but no where near other countries.

Anyhow, that dragnet feeder is pretty slick. I was thinking of doing something similar where both the idler bearing and knurled bolt are driven but I couldn't workout the geometry that would allow it to be powered by one source while maintaining the ability to adjust it. Seems like you have...

One thing I did I really liked was to replace my UM1's feeder gear set with a herringbone set. It allows very little backlash. If you have backlash, you might considered a similar solution.

    • 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.
