Bowden Collets

Recommended Posts

Posted · Bowden Collets

I just know I'm going to loose/break a collet, especially while I'm playing with feeders! So I've been looking around for a source of replacement & found these:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B006PF1RBK/ref=pe_385721_37986871_TE_item

For £5.25 I've got 9 collects. That should keep even me going for a few months :-P

 

Is the link correct? I get to some

Natures Water 1/4" TEE T PIECE FRIDGE WATER PIPE FITTING PACK OF 3

when I click it...

@reibuehl: If you look closely you can see that there's a collet at each end of the fitting.

And you can't really print it as there are metal teeth inside of the collet that bite into the bowden as shiremog mentioned. It wouldn't have enough grip without them to hold the bowden in place.

@IRobertI: Oh, I totally overlooked that... does that mean that I can also use the matching 1/4" freezer hose as a replacement for the bowden tube? Or is this a different material/strength/dimension?

Very unlikely to be the same size or material. The bore on the UM is unusually small & the material is not very common.
