Re: Where to get some steel custom cut?

Did you check Ponoko?

They have laser cutting of steel plates, never used it before, but I have been happy with the cuts on my acrylic orders.

Re: Extruders

Enraged mentioned it a few posts back but you really should check out the Greg's Wade reloaded extruder. It pretty much combines all the "best of" both extruder styles: guidler, tilt screws (for easy access), fishbone geras, etc.

The more densely packed teeth of the GT2 belts were a significant upgrade from the widely spaced ...

Re: Backlash?

This actually brings up something I have been wondering. Is there a specific reason that MXL timing belts were chosen? From what I understand XL belts are designed for use as timing belts, while GT2 belts are designed for linear motion. On my prusa when I switched from T5 belts to GT2 belts I notice...
